At a store in Cologne’s industrial area, there were several cases of vandalism on driveways and parking spaces in the outdoor area. Further, theft was repeatedly registered in the building and on the property. Since a video security system could not be installed due to data protection laws, no video data could be provided for the collection of evidence in the case of an emergency.
General safety threats & deficiencies included:
- Unauthorized access
KiwiSecurity recognized the operator’s stalemate and already had a fitting solution.
The KiwiVision® Privacy Protector automatically pixelizes the visual image of persons in surveillance videos in real-time. While movements and actions remain recognizable, the intrusion into people’s privacy can be prevented without decreasing the necessary level of security. Only when a person in the video needs to be identified, the untouched original video can be accessed by the managing director and a staff representative with two chip cards and respective PIN codes (dual control). The original video is being recorded in the background and encrypted according to military standards. Each attempted or actual access is saved and documented.
With the solution created in collaboration with Novatec the privacy of all persons appearing in surveillance videos can be protected according to data protection laws, while the operators can provide video data for the collection of evidence in the case of emergency.
