Retailer opts for Dahua

April 2016 Surveillance

Dahua Technology provides security solutions for Shop ‘n Save in Fiji. Shop ’n Save was founded in 1979 as a grocery store in Belleville. The chain now includes 38 stores in the St. Louis metropolitan area, and three additional stores in Springfield, Illinois.

In 1983, the retail chain was acquired by Wetterau, Inc. Nine years later, in 1992, Wetterau was acquired by SuperValu, and Shop ’n Save has been a subsidiary of SuperValu since. Recently, Shop ‘n Save supermarkets became the fastest growing supermarket chain in Fiji which runs 16 supermarkets, serving the major towns and cities in Viti levu and Vanua Levu – the two major islands of Fiji. The company’s trading name is an identifiable brand name in the supermarket industry in Fiji, known both for the quality of its service and products.

Supermarkets are places where supervision and security is vital, but difficult to maintain. A supermarket is usually large with racks and partitions being literally everywhere. Shop ’n Save in Fiji needed a more advanced security solution for its protection. Because of the diversity of areas that need protecting in Shop ’n Save, Dahua provided a dome camera and bullet camera for the front-end and Beneficio series NVRs for storage.

Dahua IR bullet cameras are installed in the entrances and exits, and on the sales floor to prevent crime. Besides IR bullet cameras, IR dome cameras are installed in the cash desk area, which provides a high zoom range to capture all details to a maximum to 20fps@3 megapixels to support the security staff.

Dahua’s 3-megapixel full HD network waterproof IR bullet camera with a 2.7-12 mm fixed lens features optimal picture quality. IP66-rated weatherproofing and dust-proofing ensures the cameras can withstand even the harshest weather environments. Furthermore, IK10-rated vandal-proof can effectively prevent violent destruction.

The cash desks are monitored with Dahua IR dome cameras with wide zoom capabilities. The 3-megapixel IR dome supports H.264 and MJPEG dual-stream encoding with 13 megapixel effective resolution. The maximum IR LEDs length is 30 metres.

The cameras are be mounted in all critical spots, which allows security operators to manually follow events in the store, e.g. if a detective is involved. For recording, Dahua provides its Beneficio NVR series including the 16-channel 2U 16-PoE network video recorder and 16-channel 1.5U 16-PoE network video recorder. The Beneficio recorders are user-friendly and reliable. Data are compressed in H.264 which ensures a long recording time.
