AI cameras for logistics

SMART Surveillance 2023 Logistics (Industry), Surveillance, Integrated Solutions

More than 800 high-definition AI surveillance cameras, equipment for 60 access control points, and a unified security management system has been supplied by Dahua Technology to a large logistics warehouse in Europe. In addition, Dahua cameras enabled the installation of a time-lapse video to showcase the construction and fitting out of the warehouse – step by step.

The warehouse management needed a comprehensive surveillance system to monitor logistics processes, detect and deal with abnormal events as early as possible, and provide security surveillance and access control throughout the complex. In particular, they needed a system which could monitor the key areas of the logistics hub such as cargo, sorting, packing, loading and unloading, as well as controlling staff access. In addition, the customer wanted a video record of the entire construction and fitting out of the warehouse, to be used as a reference study for other sites across Europe.

The Dahua solution

A network of more than 800 HD AI cameras was installed. These include 2 MP bullet network cameras, 2 MP IR fixed focal dome cameras with WizSense, and 2 MP Lite AI IP fixed focal bullet cameras. Access control equipment installed includes 2-door, 2-way access controllers and waterproof RFID readers which support RS485, Wiegand, Mifare and EM-ID. Also supplied was a DSS Pro V8 VMS, providing scalable, reliable, powerful and flexible central management of the entire system,

The management of the logistics warehouse are now able to secure the site, control access and – using the AI-enabled cameras – detect and respond to any abnormal events. This ensures that they are able to manage the processes carried out in the logistics hub correctly and efficiently, while enhancing the security of the whole site.

Moreover, the VMS can manage legacy third party devices as well. Finally, the management were able to produce a time-lapse video of the construction and fitting out of the site, which is now being used as a model for other sites. They are also able to produce time-lapse videos of specific processes in the warehouse to be used as case studies.
