An integrative high-performance security solution in new facility sparks upgrades to existing systems for Magnum Companies.
When it came time for Magnum Companies , a freight transportation and warehouse provider, to outfit their new Coon Rapids, MN facility with a surveillance system, they didn’t want to ditch their existing access control system and install new, but instead develop an integrative high-performance security solution. This new system would combine new surveillance technology with their existing access control. With a network of terminals throughout seven states, Matthew Gadberry, VP of Truckload/Dedicated at Magnum, was also looking for “One platform to manage it all”.
Digital Surveillance Concepts had the full package Magnum Companies was looking for including the perfect solution for their new build. “No one else was willing to work with what we had; they all wanted to install a new access control system”, said Gadberry. In order to effectively operate the new system alongside the existing system, DSC brought in DSX Access Systems, Inc. to certify the team and to provide more information on the system capabilities to Magnum so they could optimize their existing equipment. They had a robust system to start, but weren’t all that familiar with the capabilities. DSC made it their priority to utilize what they had instead of installing new equipment.
The installation would include a new surveillance system that combines network video recorders from i3 International and cameras from Hanwha Techwin America (formerly Samsung). The new system would provide them with better clarity and views of all vehicles and employees entering and leaving throughout the property. The DSX access control system would also provide them with continuity between all locations to watch over vehicles, assets, and employees all on the same platform.
With their new integrated system, Magnum feels confident in the safety of their employees and assets. They learned a lot about the existing access control technology and were able to utilize and expand on what they had. Magnum was so impressed with the camera quality of the new surveillance cameras in Coon Rapids they had DSC update all of the Fargo locations to provide the same quality imaging.
