Dog Care Center Receives Surveillance System Upgrade

Vicon’s Valerus surveillance solution is being utilized not just for security reasons, but also as an aid with staff supervision, management and training.

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. — Vicon Industries, a designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware and components, announces Play Dog eXcellent (PDX), a premier provider of dog care services in Chattanooga, Tenn., has completed a facility-wide security upgrade with the company’s new Valerus VMS.

PDX consists of a 20,000 square foot building that is surrounded by four-acres of property that provides boarding, dog day care, training, seminars, workshops and performance events for the dog-loving community. The business serves an average of 120 dogs each day.

Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Meyers Security handled system design and installation of the new system, which incorporates many of the center’s existing analog cameras along with new high-definition models into a Valerus network solution that enhances the security and operations at PDX, according to an announcement. There are plans to eventually swap out the remaining analog cameras with new HD analog models from Vicon.

New Vicon 4 MP cameras and 12MP hemispheric cameras provide PDX management with the ability to differentiate between individual dogs on camera, even from long distances and when they’re moving very quickly, according to the company.

In addition to security surveillance, the Valerus system is said to be proving helpful with staff supervision, management and training. Video clips of staff interacting with the dogs, or the dogs interacting with each other, are used as “teachable moments” during staff meetings to demonstrate how procedures can be improved.

Video from panoramic cameras above the training arena provide clear footage of agility exercises, which can also be reviewed repeatedly by training staff.

Vicon’s Mike Rose, regional sales manager who worked on the project, says “The PDX installation showcases how Vicon solutions can offer the features and benefits of a premium VMS solution to smaller businesses with modest budgets.”
