Westford, MA – February 21, 2011 – American Dynamics, part of Tyco Security Products, announced today that footwear company Skechers USA Inc. has selected an American Dynamics video surveillance solution to secure its new Rancho Belago, Calif., distribution facility. Select Systems Technology, Inc., of Torrance, Calif., is serving as the systems integrator on the project.
With more than 3,000 styles for men, women and children, Skechers, one of the nation's largest footwear firms, will use the American Dynamics solution in its $250 million, flagship distribution facility. The 1.8 million-square-foot complex, which does a high-volume of business, has unique security requirements because of its designation as a U.S. foreign trade zone.
Skechers selected the American Dynamics' victor video management system, which provides security officers the ability to view, search and export video from both DVR and NVR environments within a single interface. The company also chose Illustra 400 high-definition IP Mini Dome cameras and IP SpeedDome cameras from American Dynamics as part of the surveillance solution.
"Our new facility was designed to optimize operational efficiencies of our distribution operations, and we expected the same performance from our new security and surveillance technology," said Greg Drivas, Director of Loss Prevention for Skechers USA. "Using victor from American Dynamics simplifies the management of our large camera network for our loss prevention and security staff."
The footwear company is using Illustra 400 and IP SpeedDome cameras among the 150-plus cameras used in the installation. The video is recorded on American Dynamics VideoEdge NVR and stored on American Dynamics Network Video Storage Solutions. The scalable storage system is designed to work with high-performance devices such as the victor video management system.
"Skechers had unique needs for its new, state-of-the-art facility and we were able to meet those needs with a creative blend of innovative technology and expert design," said Vijay Patel, Senior Manager, Select Systems Technology, Inc.
