Allied Universal Corporation – NVR System Palmetto

Surveillance Technology, Inc. (STI) recently undertook a two-week project to cover three key areas on the sprawling Palmetto, FL property of Allied Universal Corporation. Allied supplies water treatment chemicals to industrial, swimming pool, and municipal users. They operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with over 300 employees and a dedicated fleet of tanker trucks and railcars. As with their six other manufacturing and distribution locations, the Palmetto property needed a robust, comprehensive surveillance system. STI’s approach to this project was somewhat unique in its use of both DVR & NVR technologies on a single platform.

The administrative building is now covered by nine cameras. Three cameras offer varifocal lenses and motorized zoom for tight views, while five fixed bullets provide broad views of the parking lot and truckers’ check out gate. These 8-megapixel cameras capture color footage, even in night vision mode, with a 24/7 color feature. One 5-megapixel camera sports a 5 – 50 mm lens, easily covering the 180 feet between camera and the entrance gate, as this lens can achieve high quality, tight views at a distance up to 350 feet.

At a second building, an NVR system supports a series of 4K IP cameras with AI. These cameras can be programmed to recognize the presence of people or vehicles during prescribed times. In addition to intrusions, they can detect objects left behind that have stayed in one location longer than expected. Their coverage extends to the truck fueling areas, weigh stations, gas exhaust tower, and property perimeter. This assortment of cameras includes five with varifocal lenses for tight views and two fixed bullets.

Surveillance Technology used both a 16 channel H.265 4K DVR and a 16 channel NVR to cover all of the critical areas inside Allied’s main chemical plant. Creating and transporting water treatment chemicals is potentially hazardous and highly regulated. As a result, this property has high risk areas that warrant detailed surveillance, including power transformers, chemical diffusers, and chemical storage. There is also a great deal of movement, with trucks checking in, procuring fuel, and weighing in both before and after being filled with chemicals. This complex portion of the Allied campus required a collection of thirty cameras with a diverse array of lenses and capabilities. All cameras from all three areas can be viewed on a single platform, over their computers or hand held devices.

Allied meets the chemical needs of customers who vary in size from neighborhood pool stores with local delivery needs to large industrial and municipal users who need truckload or rail service. They are similar in this way to Surveillance Technology, who uses best in class products and fifty years of combined experience to meet the surveillance and access control needs of small businesses and large corporations alike.

    Recognized as a Historic Landmark Resort in the St Petersburg downtown area, we were looking for the best in the surveillance camera and equipment system business. We talked with Luis from Surveillance Technology Inc, and seemed like the right choice for us. He was very professional, honest, promised us prompt response and even took the time to walk the entire property. I am so happy that we choose his company for our surveillance needs and professional advice. Luis has been with us since 2021 and has made several installations. The results have all been outstanding clear picture, easy viewing and storing.I would like to especially point out an installation done this week at our Marina. His wonderful techs led by Jaime, performed a cable installation where a "dinghy" had to be used. Fighting hightide and waves they managed to install approximately 1 mile of cable and deliver the best video viewing on all cameras. I will recommend Luis and his company to anyone looking for surveillance equipment hands down.

    Although very busy, this company sent out their technicians within a reasonable amount of time.. The technicians Jamie and Josh were very professional and friendly. Jaimie identified and rectified my problem I had with on line visualization of the camera views and playback. He also assisted with making sure our phones were able to bring up the same views. One hour later....done. PLUS I received a call the next morning to answer any questions I may have had. Thank you!!! BTW,, Louis is the person that answers the phone and is extremely helpful and phone friendly with curteous professional communication. KUDOS
