Motorcycle dealers take turnkey video management

Wavestore : 17 August, 2015  (Application Story)
Wavestore Video Management Software (VMS) is helping to maintain a high level of security at two Harley-Davidson dealerships.
Motorcycle dealers take turnkey video management

Harley-Davidson of NYC Tribeca is a unique two-level space in the heart of New York City which has become a recent welcome addition for bike enthusiasts from the area and for visitors from around the world. The Manhattan located dealership is run by Asaf Jacobi, President of Harley-Davidson of NYC, who also has responsibility for the Harley-Davidson of NYC’s main dealership in Queens, NY.

With a requirement to deter would be thieves, as well as create a safe and secure environment for staff and visitors at both dealerships, Asaf Jacobi turned to New York based systems integrator, AISG, to solve his security needs.

Asaf wanted a full turnkey solution which would not only cover his security requirements with alarm and video systems, but also provide the media needs of the store with a state of the art monitor wall and sound system.

Wavestore was selected for the video surveillance part of the project. An old analogue video surveillance system in the Queens store was upgraded to a hybrid system, whilst the Manhattan dealership was equipped with a total IP network  solution.

AISG worked closely with the Harley NYC IT department to set up remote alarm and video monitoring, as well as local networks, whilst a Wavestore management and storage server was set up to support  domes and 360 degree cameras manufactured by Vivotek. Configuring the cameras was seamless thanks to Wavestore’s open platform technology.

Located in Long Island City for over 25 years, the main Queens store is a full service destination. Whilst both locations offer the authentic Harley-Davidson experience, when designing the Manhattan store, Asaf Jacobi took into account why customers flock to the Queens location and turned it up a notch.

What visitors see is the world’s first and only Harley-Davidson Powerwall, with two multi-touch kiosks that let them design, instantly view and save their custom bikes on a movie screen sized display. There is also a Leather Lounge Café and coffee bar, a Glass Bike Lift suspended from the ceiling, and a premium selection of accessories and apparel.

“With a lot going on at both locations, the ability to view the stores remotely, gives me mobility and more freedom to move around. The system is reliable and offers flexibility. Plus, it is easy to use, and as I learn more, the product gets consistently better over time,” said Asaf. “You can really tell the difference. The new system is more effective. I am able to zoom in and focus on one area and get a really clear image.”

The Wavestore solution deployed at the two dealerships is scalable and provides a platform that makes integration between disparate technologies simple. Asaf will therefore be able to deploy additional cameras if and when required and, with Wavestore’s ability  to support third party technologies, such as video analytics, he is  planning in the future to take full advantage of the open platform VMS to capture valuable business intelligence and operational data to maximise customer satisfaction.  He is also considering integrating the stores’ access control systems in order to obtain visual verification of who has entered restricted areas, such as staff and stock rooms.
