As the largest furniture store in the area between Nuremberg, Regensburg and Munich, Möbelhof in Parsberg and Ingolstadt is a home decorator’s heaven unrivalled in the region. High-quality classical and modern furnishing articles and the latest in furnishing trends are presented on total areas of 20 000 m2 in Parsberg and 40 000 m2 in Ingolstadt. A wide selection of home accessories and soft furnishing textiles is also available.
For managing director Martin Stephan, it is extremely important to offer high-quality goods to his customers. This is why a video surveillance system has been installed in each of the furniture stores. He decided to use the equipment from Dallmeier following several recommendations – and he is more than happy with this choice.
Panomera MFS technology
In all, there are three Panomera multifocal sensor systems installed in the furniture store in Ingolstadt. They are concentrated mainly on the entrance area and the goods collection zone, where customers load the furniture they have purchased into their vehicles. “The cameras enable us to determine quite clearly the point at which risk was transferred from the warehouse to the collector. This is important for us for the purpose of ensuring the quality of our goods”, explains Stephan.
MFS technology delivers substantial added value compared with conventional single sensor cameras. “The loading zone is quite long. Thanks to the amazingly detailed resolution of the Panomera, we can watch over the entire area with just one camera. That not only saves us the cost of additional cameras, but it has also made installation and cable laying much simpler,” he continues.
Besides the multifocal sensor systems, there are also several IP cameras with integrated infrared lighting and vandal-resistant dome cameras in operation in the store. These provide effective protection against vandalism or theft in both the outside and inside areas.
The existing, analogue cameras from a different manufacturer that were already in place in Ingoldstadt were incorporated in the new Dallmeier system. “Of course, that was an immense advantage to us in financial terms, because it meant that we did not have to replace the equipment all at once, we could continue using our existing cameras, and change over gradually and completely to IP technology,” says Stephan with satisfaction.
One feature that Stephan finds particularly useful is the Dallmeier iPhone/iPad app, called DMVC, available in the iTunes Appstore: “I travel a lot, and this app gives me access to the camera images wherever I am.”
The Dallmeier system has proven its worth in practical operation, and Stephan is satisfied with his choice: “Our old, analogue system has simply reached the limits of its capabilities. And so with Dallmeier, we have found a video system that is not only modern, but which can be expanded and most importantly will continue to deliver outstanding performance for a long time to come.”
