For example, retail theft is a significant growth easier. In 2010, according to the German retail research institute private property with a value of € 3.7 billion EHI disappeared. One reason for retailers to use modern security systems video. What the cost would be no deterrent security systems can however say. Probably much higher than the specified value. In addition, intelligent video applications also contribute to security in other areas, thus putting an additional return on investment. Thus, they can be used among others in the distribution to analyze customer behavior and determine the retention time of passengers at check-in. These data may in turn concepts are developed, customers and sales services.
The costs of purchasing, installing and operating
While a specific ROI analysis is difficult, it can buy, the costs of installation and operation (such as camera maintenance, software updates, license fees, power) of different systems, but compare them on. For example, Mobotix has analyzed the costs of its own solution compared to traditional analog and network solutions. The application scenarios and facilities comparable hardware and software could significant results can be determined.
The installation consists of 50 sample analog security cameras – 15 outside, inside 35 – D1 PAL resolution. In addition, four analog channels 16 DVR with 0.5 terabytes of storage capacity and a multiplexer matrix for selective alarm management were needed. Additional costs fell for a video management software (VMS) for recording, research, analysis and alarm management and hardware of the control unit with four video workstations.
The installation consists of 50 IP camera security cameras outdoors (15, 35 inside), including switches, motherboard and the RAID system. Just as with the analogue system as VMS and equip the control center was needed.
Fewer cameras and costs of installing
Also in memory capacity and power could be saved in all cases compared. There are two reasons: first, the company operates the images directly from the camera. On the other hand, the cameras can be powered by the extremely low energy consumption via an Ethernet cable. Especially in times of constantly rising energy prices, this aspect also provides a positive impact on ROI analysis.
Reduced operating costs
In direct comparison, the cost for Mobotix approach similar system has much in advance. The acquisition is approximately 30 percent lower installation costs are lower by nearly 15 percent and 66 percent should be spent on operating costs per year. The cost of energy is less than 30 percent of the comparison system. Even compared to the HD-IP, Mobotix solution is less expensive to buy – the difference still amounts to ten percent. Conversely, reducing operating costs by 79 per cent, well below those of the conventional network camera solution. Also fall to less than half (47 percent) of the cost of energy, so that the Mobotix solution that costs and in particular can be considered as resources.
Comparison of different systems makes one thing clear: The concept of free and professional decentralized Mobotix VMS Both companies are well informed regarding the costs of acquisition and operation. Also looking forward to the world, such as cameras Palatine company have the best consumption.
