Axxon PSIM Powers Video Surveillance at Leading Austrian Retailer

Axxon PSIM Lite, the pinnacle of reliability in commercial security systems, now powers the cutting-edge video surveillance system implemented at SPAR


SPAR is one of the world’s most popular supermarket chains. Headquartered in Amsterdam, SPAR was founded in the Netherlands in 1932 as a grocers’ cooperative. Today, the chain unites over 15,000 stores in 34 countries, primarily in Europe but with a presence extending to South Africa, Australia, Argentina, and other countries across the globe. With 1,586 stores in Austria alone, employing a workforce of 38,000, the company underscores its commitment to quality and security.


Retail security is paramount for large retail chains like SPAR, given their extensive visibility and high customer traffic. To address this, SPAR Österreichische Warenhandels AG, overseeing the Austrian stores, approached the deployment of a new CCTV system with utmost seriousness. In collaboration with AxxonSoft’s trusted Austrian partner, AlbiControl, SPAR opted for Axxon PSIM Lite due to its multifunctionality, reliability, and intelligent security features. 

The developer had to propose a system for stores that would be easy to use and configure, yet powerful enough to work reliably and glitch-free. The solution incorporates advanced video analytics, providing SPAR with a sophisticated tool to enhance security measures. Axxon PSIM Lite not only ensures the safety of the retail environment but also aids in customer analytics. 


SPAR chose Axxon PSIM Lite for its simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and compatibility with their requirements. The video surveillance system, supporting up to 64 cameras and an array of advanced functionalities, provided SPAR with a robust solution for seamless security operations. The system is a fully functional version of Axxon PSIM with support for all core features: interactive site maps, event log, tools to create automatic scripts for reacting to events, support for all IP devices covered by Axxon PSIM integration, and more. 

The setup is perfect for effective live video monitoring as well as after-the-fact analysis and investigation. Security staff can easily find important video footage of past events, analyze recorded video with special video analytic tools, perform remote real-time video surveillance, and create automatic reaction scripts for handling alarm events. 

Results and Benefits

The implementation of Axxon PSIM Lite has significantly elevated SPAR’s retail security, providing a comprehensive solution with advanced features. This cutting-edge system ensures not only the safety of the retail environment but also empowers SPAR with valuable insights into customer behavior through intelligent video analytics

"Our client is delighted with the system: it's reliable, powerful, and a breeze to configure,"

– Christian Kastner, project manager at AlbiControl

 Building on this success, Spar Österreich Warenhandels AG is proactively planning to extend the deployment of Axxon PSIM Lite to other SPAR supermarkets across Austria. The scalability and adaptability of the system make it an ideal choice for creating a standardized, secure retail environment. This strategic approach underlines the commitment of AxxonSoft and its partner AlbiControl to contribute to the ongoing development of safer and more secure retail spaces.
