The Netwatch team reviewed the issues, carried out an extensive site survey to assess the vulnerable areas, and proposed a technology solution to meet Mannok’s needs. In addition to recording 24/7/365, the new solution includes Netwatch Proactive Video Monitoring (PVM) and License Plate Recognition (LPR).
Proactive Video Monitoring provides Mannok with a purpose-built surveillance and response platform, and a dedicated team of US-based intervention specialists. This combination of video surveillance technology with the human element helps Mannok cost-effectively and efficiently protect their perimeters and facilities. As soon as any potential problem is detected, expert intervention specialists verify the situation and issue live, personalized audio warnings. These have demonstrated a 98% efficacy rate in deterring bad behavior and stopping crimes.
License Plate Recognition helps Mannok oversee the constant stream of vehicles entering the premises, often via remote mountain routes, to identify any vehicles that should not be on site. With public access from all roads, this is a significant support resource to help maintain security and safety for the manufacturer.
Each evening when the staff logs out, the Netwatch system is armed and covers the perimeter of the sites. If any perimeter is breached, the Netwatch Communication Hub is alerted and action can be taken instantly. Mannok now has additional protection, as well as the deterrent factor of knowing proactive monitoring is in place.
Mannok management now feels more confident about the safety of their personnel and protection of their high value assets.
The Netwatch System has resulted in a notable decrease in security breaches onsite, even across Mannok’s hundreds of acres. The staff are more comfortable in their working environment and the fear of antisocial behavior and monetary losses to the company has been reduced.
