Solution
To fulfill company’s security needs LaMarco Systems designed and installed reliable fire alarm system with 5 year warranty by EST preventing the place from one of the destructive elements – fire. Along with that Fresh Farms safeguards its facility with Bosch security system (G Series). Door sensors and multiple motion detectors inside the facility capture every movement, timely notifying police station about any suspicious activities.
One of the key solutions in resolving company’s issues was installation of HD (Arecont, Vivotek) security cameras integrated with POS (point of sale). This configuration allows recording all the traffic in the store as well as tracking live what transactions are being done every second of time and can be easily found and played back for proof if any issue appears.Result
As the major benefits of the installed systems Fresh Farms gained total security of all the employees and the entire facility from unwanted intrusion or destructive powers. Moreover HD cameras integration with POS system resolved one of the key issues by allowing managers easily track all the transactions: what items are being scanned, by what cashier at what price, what time and who is the customer. This brings down to minimum all possible issues that may appear later between store and a customer.
Faced with rapid growth and perceptible increase of employees, one of the leading international brokerage companies based in Chicago – Command Transportation – had to effectively yet cost efficiently enhance the security of the work place along with increasing control of the daily workflow.Solution
For the matters of developing optimal security and controlling solutions LaMarco Systems equipped the facility with HD cameras, most reliable EST fire alarm system along with Bosch security system (G Series) and RBH access control system.Results
After implementing Access Control system (IdentiCard) management of the company got an absolute tool of controlling people traffic in the facility. Now each employee has a unique badge that is being easily scanned at the door. Then information is being sent to the main computer where all the data of whom, when and where entered or left the facility is being securely stored. This allows manager to have access to reports of all the movement in the building 24/7. With this solution it’s easy to track employees’ presence at work as well as prevent unwanted entrance of unauthorized personnel.
For the purposes of security Command Transportation went with Bosch G Series security system. After the alarm is set motion detectors catch every move and in case of any intrusion immediately send a signal to police station ensuring timely assistance.
With these systems installed along with HD security cameras recording 24/7 and giving crystal clear view of all the operations in the company, Command Transportation got ultimate solutions to its security and control needs.

Lifeway Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWAY)Challenge
With growing of production volumes management faced the problem of lacking of monitoring as well as control over production line and warehouse employees which led to down time and delays in working process.Solution
Existing analog CCTV system that was supposed to provide these functions was only able to evidence the events; however, did not give enough details to find out neither what exactly caused a problem and why, nor who was responsible for that. In response to the needs of getting ahead of the problems and better tracking of the entire working process, existing conventional CCTV system was replaced with High Definition IP Surveillance System.Result
The perfectly clear, up to the smallest details, high quality video is a major reason why HD IP surveillance cameras were selected. With its recent experience Lifeway Foods, Inc. received more than sufficient result in recognizing the reasons, causing downfalls in the working process whether it was technical issues or employee’s inaccuracy. By pointing at it on the high quality video to the staff, the company could successfully get ahead of the problems, make corrections in training of the employees in order to avoid other discrepancies in working process. As a result the down time was cut by 50% and the productivity increased.
More than that, High Definition IP surveillance system installed in the facilities has become an irreplaceable tool for insurance purposes. Previously having incidents of violations on the parking lot only now by using HDTV cameras Lifeway foods, inc. gets a crystal clear and very detailed video, that helps to keep a complete track of every object coming close, entering or leaving the facility, enabling license plate and face recognition, which means reliable identification at all times. Having another mean of keeping everything under control saves the company managers both time and money.
