Installing analytics with a remote monitoring service.

DVTel has announced that Acker-Stone Industries, manufacturer of interlocking pavers sold throughout the United States, has begun monitoring its corporate office and manufacturing facility using DVTel’s intelligent video analytics from ioimage to detect security breaches and quickly identify safety issues for employees. The intelligent video solution is remotely viewed by a local remote monitoring company, Virtual Guard. By pairing intelligent video with the company’s remote monitoring capabilities, they are able to prevent theft, identify security breaches and provide enhanced security for employees.

From its manufacturing facility and headquarters in California, Acker-Stone makes standard and permeable-concrete pavers for patios, walkways and other architectural landscape features. Its products are then shipped to distributors and installers throughout the United States.

“By deploying video analytics, Acker-Stone Industries has significantly improved security operations company-wide,” said Isaac Schwarzman, president of Acker-Stone Industries. “We have paired video analytics with remote video monitoring which enabled us to replace security guards with a solution that never sleeps, is ever vigilant and always alert.”

In addition to outside threats, one of the company’s biggest operational concerns, said Schwarzman, is monitoring employees for safety violations and to protect the company against fraudulent accident and worker compensation claims.

“The main reason for deploying a remote video monitoring solution using analytics or smart sensors is saving money and realising a fast return on investment,” said Steve Devir, COO at Virtual Guard. “Also, the actionable intelligence provided is more reliable than what traditional sensors used in outdoor environments have been able to deliver. Additionally, if there is a guard, they can only see one area at a time. We can watch all four sides of the premises simultaneously or only upon a predefined alarm event so it is more efficient than increasing the manpower on site.”
