Amazon needed a high-tech deterrent to help prevent potential intrusion and anti-social behaviour in the public road used to access their distribution centre. Clearway’s solution was to install two CCTV towers with cameras facing the entrance and exit of the multi-story car park where anti-social behaviour is common.
A number of anti-social behaviour incidents have occurred since the centre opened such as illegal car racing and, more recently, fireworks were set-off directly outside Amazon.
Clearway’s CCTV towers are extremely effective as a visual deterrent and will help prevent further incidents. The towers operate 24/7 and are power-independent, using the mobile network for communications. All events are recorded, stored remotely and made available to both Amazon and the authorities, providing a greater sense of security for Amazon staff.
