Travel Retail Domodedovo LLC is a subsidiary of the large German holding Gebr. Heinemann, which develops distribution, logistics and retail sales in the Travel Value & Duty Free format. Gebr. Heinemann, founded in 1879, currently owns a chain of 228 shops in 47 international airports around the world and is one of the world leaders on the duty free market. The holding has been developing its own retail chain in Russia since 2008.
The client commissioned UNIMAX to equip a Duty Free shop and a warehouse with a video surveillance system with point of sale monitoring and the capability for remote monitoring. The shop and warehouse are on the territory of Ostafyevo International Airport and are quite far apart.
Considering the specific character of the task, only an IP video surveillance system would do. Communication lines and an Ethernet connection between the warehouse and the shop were already in place. Under these conditions, it was not practical to run new lines between the warehouse and the shop, among other things due to the large number of approvals needed and the complex work conditions.
For IP cameras, several models from Axis were selected: the Axis P1113 for general video surveillance, the Axis P1114 with megapixel resolution for surveillance at the register, and the Axis P1113-E for outdoor video surveillance. All the current Axis cameras are powered through PoE, which substantially simplifies installation for the installer and makes it less expensive for the client; it also makes it possible to control the power supply of the device remotely.
Many successful Axxon Intellect deployments at Duty Free shops was the main factor in selecting a platform for the security system. Thanks to the large number of POS systems integrated in the POS-Intellect module, the client was able to connect the shop’s existing point of sale terminal to the installed system. During operational testing, the client especially noted Intellect’s operator-friendly interface and ease of configuration.
In the end the client obtained a modern video surveillance and point of sale monitoring system which takes care of the tasks currently required and can be expanded and modernized in the future. Remote monitoring from the central office in Domodedovo Airport makes it possible to quickly obtain data from a remote site and monitor the situation constantly.
