Walgreens Distribution Center Deploys Wireless Video Solution for Monitoring Robots
HauteSpot Networks Corp., an international provider of wireless video surveillance and security solutions, recently announced the national deployment of HauteSpot wireless in a Walgreens distribution center.
HauteSpot Networks also announced Firetrol Protection Systems as its newest system integrator.
The Dallas based integrator joined with HauteSpot Networks to designand promote HauteSpot’s security and industrial automation technology.
The innovative video system was installed in the Dallas distribution center. The solution used the HauteWRAP, a high-performance wireless router, and theHauteSHOT microNVR, a compact network video recorder. The HauteSHOTmicroNVR is among the smallest IP recording devices on the market. It measures 4x4x1inches, solely consumes 8 watts, and operates on 12VDC.
“HauteSpot was able to design and provide a world class wireless megapixel videosolution,” said Ron Walthall of Firetrol Protection Systems. “The wireless video signalwas transmitted over a completely different frequency so it did not interfere with the customer’s existing Wi-Fi, this made the IT managers happy.”
The video system provides Walgreens’ warehouse personnel with a new level of security and efficiency. The HauteSHOT microNVR allows warehouse employees to safely andremotely monitor the movement of robotic pallet machines within the distribution center using high-definition and real time video streaming. The operators can determine if malfunctions with the robotic machines warrant manual assistance or can be remotely overridden. Thus, reducing the number of repair personnel on the warehouse floor and minimizing the liability with machinery.
“The customer has been so impressed with the system, they have asked us to install identical systems at other facilities around the country,” said Walthall. “I know HauteSpot stands behind their products and have the technical expertise to handle any size wireless video recording situation.”
