Agent Vi Detects Perimeter Intrusions and Unauthorized Movement at High-Value Manufacturing Sites

“We are more than satisfied with the performance of Agent Vi’s real-time analytics solution. The security at our sites has been upgraded significantly, and this was achieved through integration with the cameras and video management software in our surveillance system…”

Information Technology Manager, ASO Siderurgica


ASO Siderurgica is an established, Italian steel producer. The company sought a surveillance solution for three manufacturing facilities. Each site covers 36,000 to 70,000 sq. m. and hosts valuable manufacturing machinery. Due to the threat of break-ins, unauthorized entry and theft, they sought to monitor and secure the sites around the clock, and especially during the night hours and on weekends when there is a smaller staff presence.


A best-of-breed solution was employed, combining real-time video analytics from Agent Vi, IP cameras from Axis Communications and a recording and viewing application from Genetec. The cameras were placed around the sites’ perimeters and at critical junctions at each site. All perimeter intrusions and sterile zone breaches detected by Agent Vi generate an alert, allowing the security operator to understand the threat in real-time and dispatch the appropriate security response.


The solution deployed at these manufacturing facilities has ensured a superior level of surveillance for ASO Siderurgica. Immediately after installation, the security team started receiving detections of unauthorized people and cars at the sites. With the instant display of the intruders’ movement paths in the Genetec Live Viewer, the company security team now operates at an optimal level.
