Surveillance Tailored to Burlington’s Needs

American Integration Security Group (AISG) suits up to outfit one of the nation’s most prolific apparel retailers — Burlington Coat Factory — with a uniform IP-based video surveillance solution. Involving several hundred stores and 360° cameras, the project demonstrates how to satisfy retail clients on a national level.

A wide dynamic range (WDR) dome camera provides complete coverage at the entrance to each store.The solution has already received an enthusiastic reaction from BCF corporate executives and individual stores’ field managers. The surveillance systems are decreasing the incidence of bad elements entering stores and in some cases have reduced shrink by as much as 90%. And the new technology is being credited for eliminating concerns about capturing images suitable to help prosecute perpetrators.

“The systems are exceeding our expectations while improving productivity and efficiencies of our loss prevention efforts,” says Connolly. “In addition, video records have proven helpful in managing company exposure from liability associated with accidents that occur on property. Plus, law enforcement has used the technology to assist in the prosecution of criminal activity in stores and surrounding public areas covered by outside camera placements.”

AISG is presently busy rolling out the second phase of the Burlington Coat Factory store system installations, with 150 planned for 2013. At this point, the integrator has gotten each deployment down to a science and is zipping in and out of retail branches with precision of a well-oiled machine. While to date the systems are only being rolled out in the retail stores, plans are under way to also deploy IP equipment in BCF’s three main distribution centers and a newly announced corporate headquarters in Florence N.J.

“We were able to successfully meet the project timetable and technology requirements within budget,” says Acs. “Whenever you can deliver value to the customer and help them be more efficient in terms of security and overall business, you’ve achieved a significant milestone. Our partnership with Burlington Coat Factory is a long-term one and we look forward to working with them to meet future technology and service needs.”
