Warehousing, shipping and logistics companies often deal with a large number of people, stock and freight consignments, and heavy machinery every day. As a result, warehouse security is paramount.

Eversafe can help you with vital warehouse security solutions. When your business is handling thousands to millions of dollars’ worth of products and equipment, it pays to keep watch.

Warehouse CCTV provides you with ongoing surveillance to prevent theft, vandalism and damages from intruders. You need to protect your inventory, property and your employees. Warehouse security camera systems also help identify hazardous staff behaviour, as well as embezzlement, theft and fraud. No matter the size of your warehouse, by monitoring incoming and outgoing activity, you can avoid losses from property damages. Recapturing these losses will help improve your bottom line and save you money in the long run.

Further warehouse security systems work as a deterrent for would-be criminals. As a result, you can help prevent damages, rather than simply reacting to them.

Warehouse CCTV Systems and Security with Eversafe

Some of the most common security problems that warehousing, shipping and logistics companies face are stock handling discrepancies, theft of stock by employees, OH&S management and property damages. Warehouse CCTV systems not only protects personnel safety, but can also oversee operational activities and products. You can also analyse stock as it is transported and track any shipment discrepancies. Finally, for OHS, you can track the movement of personnel, trucks and forklifts. This helps you ensure there are no breaches in your critical safety standards.

Integrating warehouse security camera systems with the right alarm systems and access control can further help safeguard your property. Warehouse access control can allow you to control who enters different areas of your business, including which vehicles are permitted onsite.

Warehouse CCTV

CCTV is all about evidence. At Eversafe we hear all too often from customers trying to save money, that “we only need this level of resolution”. Remember the better the resolution the better the evidence. If you skimp on resolution it could cost you in the long run, especially if you can’t ID someone or something.

Most warehousing, shipping and the logistics companies have or have had problems with stock handling, employee theft, OH&S management and burglaries.

By installing warehouse CCTV, you not only help prevent this from happening, but you will also have better control of your business. Warehouse CCTV allows you to manage your staff, whether it be onsite or remotely. Surveillance camera systems help you protect your business and improve your company’s overall exposure to risk. If anything does happen, recorded video footage can be used as evidence.

Access Control Systems

Many businesses have a need to monitor personnel access. Warehousing, shipping and logistics companies and businesses dealing with staff, truck drivers and valuable merchandise are common users of access control systems.

Some businesses may only have access control installed on 1 door, some cover all main entry points. Common areas to cover in warehousing, shipping and logistics companies are manager’s office, administration offices, store rooms and bond stores where large volumes of liquor are stored. We would also advise you to install access control on any rear door or any entry point that may leave you are your staff vulnerable from outside attacks either during or outside business hours.

The actual set-up of the system will depend on the needs of the business, but there are some standard requirements. One common features of a typical access control system is the generation of user activity reports

Alarm Systems

A commercial grade intrusion detection system will help protect your assets and your property. Security alarm devices are standard for many businesses. If your budget is tight, at Eversafe we recommend you have an alarm system as a minimum requirement for your business. Think of it this way, an alarm system tells an intruder to get out and CCTV captures the evidence. If you have CCTV on its own, then the intruder can stay inside for as long as they like, until they find your recording device and steal it. There goes your evidence! Be proactive not reactive. Too many people install alarm systems after the fact, when it’s too late. Don’t become another statistic call, install an alarm system.

Alarm Monitoring

How often have you heard, and then ignored, an alarm siren coming from a building or a vehicle?

In today’s fast paced society, we have become desensitized to these sounds and may also not want to get involved as it may put us at risk as well.

Hence the need for a 24hr security monitoring and patrol service.

When your alarm notifies our Melbourne security monitoring centre of an emergency or disturbance, our control room operators will:

  • first call your premises to validate whether a false alarm has occurred
  • notify you via your contact response list
  • once we have made contact with you, you have the option to instruct us to send out a patrol car to attend your premises

CCTV may record problem activity, but alarm monitoring gives you a definitive timeline of the intrusion making it easier to locate the correct footage via your CCTV Surveillance system. You may also need to consider Security Monitoring for Insurance purposes. High Risk businesses such as Jewellery Stores, Pharmacies, Pubs and Gaming venues must have Security Monitoring either by Law or to satisfy Insurance requirements.

Communication Types: These days there are many ways an alarm system can communicate alarm events to a control room. Traditionally alarm systems have used Dialler Monitoring over PSTN (Landlines) to communicate to a security control room. This is slowly being phased out as NBN (National Broadband Network) is being rolled out around Australia.

  • In most cases at Eversafe we are future proofing our customers by switching them over to GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). GPRS is a packet oriented mobile data service which uses the 3 or 4G mobile network. This is the highest level of security communication that we have due to the fact that the GPRS units are dual sim ie. If the Telstra network fails it will automatically use the Optus network. The GPRS unit also sends a polling signal to the control room (like a heartbeat) at predetermined intervals. If the control room fails to receive the polling signal, then the control room will contact you to alert you to the poll failure. Because the GPRS unit uses the Mobile network there is no phone cable to tamper with making your system even more secure.
  • IP Monitoring: IP Monitoring is similar to GPRS except that it uses the internet to send signals to the control room. It is not as secure for the following reasons,
    1. Must ensure you have your modem connected to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply like a backup battery) this is to prevent communication failure in the event of a power failure.
    2. Also an intruder can cut the cable to your internet causing a comms failure. With both GPRS & IP Monitoring you won’t have the call costs associated with Dialler Monitoring which helps offset the extra cost of GPRS or IP Monitoring.

CCTV Video Monitoring

Another form of monitoring is CCTV video monitoring. Video monitoring is for those customers that need that next level of service and security. Video monitoring takes you out of harm’s way.

In the event that your alarm system reports of a burglary to the control room, the control room operator will log on to your CCTV system and will only contact you if they have visual verification of an intruder onsite. This stops you or your staff from being woken up at 3am in the morning and also minimises the need for unnecessary Patrol callouts saving you time and money.

Video monitoring is a cost effective solution which reduces the exposure to risk for all stakeholders and maximises security with a quicker response time. It is a great addition to all warehouse security systems.
