Cosmos Co-operative Bank has collaborated with VIVOTEK, an IP surveillance security provider, to safeguard not juts its premises, but its greatest asset as well, i.e. Puneites.
Established in 1906, Cosmos Bank is the second oldest & second largest bank in India. Headquartered in Pune. It has a huge network of 140 branches in India, spread across 7 States and 39 major cities. Cosmos Bank is located on the University Road, which is at the very heart of this bustling city. Considering the size of the city, the number of inhabitants and the location of the bank, any security system for such an institution had to be both up to date, and ahead of the times.
Thus, in its risk mitigation plan, Cosmos bank decided to rope in VIVOTEK as its security solution provider. A total of 132 VIVOTEK network cameras were installed across the headquarters of the bank.
Speaking on the challenges faced, Sanjeev Gulati, India and SAARC Country Manager, VIVOTEK INC., stated, “Cosmos roped in Bajaj Electricals for the design, engineering and solution implementation. The need was ripe for a smart surveillance system that not only ensures the easy flow of pedestrians and vehicles but also guarantees the comfort of the employees and customers. Post extensive research revolving around compliance, security gaps etc, the bank chose VIVOTEK’s ace solutions as the ideal alternative which can meet all the chief challenges, facing Cosmos Bank.”
For the interior areas of the bank, including the main floor area, the lifts and the lobby, 103 FD8136 Ultra-Mini Fixed-Dome Network Cameras were employed. It features a megapixel sensor enabling viewing resolution of 1280×800 at 30 fps, while its tiny size of only 90 mm in diameter and an inbuilt microphone and speaker further enhances the powerful camera. The small profile and wide view of the camera is as good as large unsightly cameras when it comes to protecting Cosmos’s employees, customers and property.
