Ingram Micro protects stock with D-Link "eyes in the sky"

Ingram Micro has installed the biggest deployment of D-Link IP surveillance cameras at a single location in the Southern Hemisphere at its South Auckland warehouse.

The distributor Ingram Micro has installed 70 D-Link DCS-3220 IP cameras at the warehouse in a move to protect stock from theft and damage, while four IP cameras are scheduled to be deployed at the warehouse's security gatehouse. A further 12 IP cameras will be installed at the Ingram Micro warehouse in Christchurch.

In a statement, Ingram Micro reports it has seen a dramatic decrease in the number of instances of both theft and damage to goods in stock since the deployment. Before the installation the major items targeted by thieves included items such as laptops, PDAs, mobile phones, printers and memory sticks.

The cameras point down every single aisle as well as into the packing and despatch areas within the 150,000 square feet South Auckland warehouse. Unlike traditional CCTV cameras, the D-Link cameras use internet protocol (IP) technology, which means all surveillance images are available in real time via the web.

According to managing director Jay Miley, Ingram Micro ships an average of 2,200 orders a day on behalf of over 90 vendors. The company has a responsibility to its vendors and customers to ensure availability of the products resellers want, when they want it, he says.

D-Link Australia and New Zealand managing director Domenic Torre confirms the installation is the single biggest deployment of D-Link IP surveillance cameras at a single location in the Southern Hemisphere.
