SecureID improves surveillance

CCTV Handbook 2011 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Financial (Industry)

Nigerian smartcard manufacturer opts for UTCFS surveillance.

SecureID is Nigeria’s leading smartcard manufacturing and personalisation company. As the first plant in Nigeria and West Africa to be certified by both Visa International and MasterCard International, SecureID stands as one of the only EMV certified plants on the African continent.

Due to the sensitivity of SecureID’s products, its production site in Lagos is run according to the stringent requirements of VISA, MasterCard and Interswitch, amongst others. In order to monitor diverse processes, and to ensure the surveillance of critical infrastructure in the plant, SecureID required a robust, intelligent and scalable video surveillance solution. SecureID turned to UTCFS in order to find a suitable system.

UTCFS and Interface Technologies, one of UTCFS’s local installers in Lagos, provided SecureID with a full video surveillance solution. Throughout the manufacturing plant high quality video surveillance cameras are now placed at strategic points.

In order to optimise the quality of this solution, a combination of day/night cameras has been used; ensuring video quality will not be affected by changes in the environment. All cameras are connected to UTCFS’s digital video recorders, which report back to the central control room where security personnel are able to fully configure, monitor and control each camera.
