Quality has been the focus to four generations at Alessi Manufacturing. Since 1912, the family owned bakery has provided high end, hand finished baked goods to the Tampa Bay area and beyond. Several years ago, the owners began strategizing with Surveillance Technology, Inc. (STI) to design a surveillance system that would provide security for its team and inventory, as well as supporting quality and efficiency goals. The existing analog CCTV system at their warehouse was outdated and due for replacement as part of ongoing capital expenditures.
STI has extensive experience with large scale projects similar to outfitting Alessi’s 100,000 sq ft temperature-controlled facility. Two 16 channel H.265 4K DVRs were installed, along with 18 cameras and over 5,000 feet of cable. A turret style 4K cameras with varifocal lens provides a tight view of the lobby entrance. Nine bullet style cameras were installed throughout the production areas, along with one turret style camera in the warehouse locked storage area. All 10 of these cameras offered 4K resolution along with 24/7 color technology which provides color footage even in night vision mode. This portion of the surveillance system covers the finishing and decorations area, as well as dry and regular storage. Two additional cameras provide broad views of a fitness area available as an amenity to employees.
Outside the facility, four bullet style 4K cameras were used on the perimeter. These 8-megapixel cameras are distinctively superior to the common products currently offered by STI’s competitors. These, too, capture color footage 24/7, even in night vision mode. In fact, each camera provides 185’ of LED light around the darkened property each night.
The system recently implemented was only phase 1 of this project. The end-to-end surveillance solution was thoughtfully designed over the course of two years, highlighting the value of a sustainable, long-term relationship with your surveillance provider. Alessi’s customers know their products will bring an air of elegance to their events and gatherings. Likewise, Surveillance Technology’s clients recognize how STI’s commitment to excellence can help them achieve their strategic goals.
