Keeping Watch Over The Farm

Former Officers Receive Peace Of Mind

Objective

Surveillance Camera System at work on a farmIn the countryside of Western Kentucky there lies a small hobby farm owned by Curt and Karen Blanc, who retired from the hustle and bustle of the Chicago Police Department after a combined 55 years on the job. On their very own ‘Happy Acres’ the Blancs care for a menagerie of animals. “As my wife often says, ‘I have one husband, two barn cats, three dogs, four ponies and five hens.’ As you can gather, my wife is definitely an animal lover,” says Curt Blanc. As caretakers of these animals, the Blancs often worry how the animals are doing and about the possibility of severe weather. “She worries about the possibility of fire and worries about the fact that there are people in this world that would intentionally harm the animals and the possibility of vandalism,” Curt says. “As you can tell, my wife worries about her pets, their surroundings and everything that may affect their well-being.”

Solution

To help them keep an eye on their pets and property, the Blancs turned to Solutions Technology Group. A surveillance system to record events for future viewing was installed incorporating both wireless and hard-wired equipment. The approach allowed for surveillance of areas that did not have a wired connection to the network. With that, the Blancs can remain aware of activity around their property and monitor the condition of their pets.

Result

As of April 2017, the Blanc farm has a complete surveillance system keeping watch over their animals and property. “We are so proud that we used Solutions Technology Group in providing us with the most up-to-date equipment available,” says Curt Blanc. “Their technicians are friendly, professional, neat and most of all, well informed on the use and installation of state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Solutions Technology Group has given us the peace of mind that is definitely needed in today's society…Again, there are no better specialists than Solutions Technology Group.”

Cadiz-Trigg County Economic Development Commission Livestreams Site Prep

Agency Seeks To Expand Industrial Base While Involving Community

 

Objective

The Cadiz-Trigg County Economic Development Authority began developing a 100,000-square-foot pad-ready site in their industrial park in mid-July 2017 that, once complete, would allow a corporation to come in and construct a facility at that location. With a desire to involve members of a community that lies along Interstate 24 in Western Kentucky, the commission realized a way to do that via a livestream of the progress in real time. To do so, a surveillance camera was needed, along with a wireless connection to transmit the stream for viewing on the agency’s website.

Solution

Over the course of approximately two weeks, the agency deployed an Axis PTZ camera fixed atop a pole overlooking the 15-acre site, as well as two Ubiquiti wireless radios that beamed the video signal to their central office. The PTZ camera will also allow the commission to oversee the construction of a new water treatment facility expected to begin later in the year, while the radios preclude interference in broadband or WiFi services.

Result

As a result of the installation performed by Solutions Technology Group, the Cadiz-Trigg County Economic Development Commission now has a live feed streaming to their website triggindustry.com available for anyone to view. The agency’s Executive Director Sharon Butts says she is satisfied with the result. “[Solutions Technology Group] came in and met with me to assess my needs, what I was looking for, the timeframe, what level or type of camera I was needing.” Butts adds she was happy with the response time to her inquiry. “Within a phone call of a day, I was meeting with them. They came down and met with me at the site and evaluated the needs, gave me instructions on what I needed to do on my end with the utilities provider. And within that, we turned this around in about two weeks.”


 

WKDZ-FM Adds Product With Livestream Weather Cams

Station Calls End Result A Partnership


 

Objective

Marconi Award-winning commercial radio station WKDZ-FM, which broadcasts to listeners in Western Kentucky and Tennessee, desired the ability to livestream local weather conditions in and around their area from their website. In doing so, the station could provide another service to their loyal audience as well as offer another advertising opportunity for their paying business customers. WKDZ-FM also wanted to test the idea first with one camera, and then add more as needed after that.

Solution

To deliver, Solutions Technology Group installed an Axis P5635-E atop WKDZ-FM’s radio tower overlooking nearby Interstate 24 in August 2015. This was such a success that less than a month later the station ordered another two installed—one at a bank in Hopkinsville, KY overlooking Eagle Way Bypass and another in downtown Cadiz, KY with a view of the city’s main street.

Result

With a clear bird’s eye view from three locations, WKDZ-FM now livestreams weather conditions straight from station’s website. WKDZ-FM President and CEO Beth A. Mann says she is pleased with the result, which she characterizes as a partnership. “We could not be more thrilled with our partnership with Solutions Technology Group.  Steve and his team of professionals are over the top in customer service. They not only meet our needs, but they also bring ideas to the table to make our products and services even better than we anticipated. They take a lot of pride in their work and in our products.  They are interested in our business and finding ways to help us to grow. That’s a true business partnership.”
