What can Vitamin D Video do for you?
True stories from happy customers (happy with the software, anyway)
Mystery of the pastry thiefTim Holmes owns a San Leandro, California coffee shop where he receives a daily delivery of fresh pastries in a bin outside his door in the wee morning hours. On occasion, some of the pastries disappear or are tampered with, costing hundreds of dollars to replace the whole batch. Using Vitamin D Video, Tim was able to determine what has happening to his daily order and cut down on the cost of theft. And for the proverbial icing on the cake, Vitamin D Video makes Tim more aware of loitering and littering in the parking area.
“It's really what I've been waiting for all this time and I'm finally setting up the camera system I had meant to all along.”
Security restoredRobert Pelletier is a homeowner whose house was burglarized twice in 2009. Dropped by his insurance company and concerned for the safety of his family and home, he tried a Linksys monitoring system with two cameras, but “the videos were so long that it was impossible to go through all of them.” So he stopped even checking. Since replacing his Linksys system with Vitamin D Video, Robert is able to regularly monitor his home for intruders with a new level of ease, time-efficiency and confidence in his family’s safety.
“Your program has given me a sense of security that I haven’t had in a long time.”
After school activityBrian Farrugia works at a school in Oshawa, Ontario that recently saw a rash of broken windows and break-ins resulting in theft. Using Vitamin D Video to send emails and text messages whenever a person was spotted at a suspected vandalism or break-in point, the school caught an incident on video within the first four days after installation. The suspect was subsequently arrested.
Defending the patchVince Zunino grows prize pumpkins in Los Altos, CA. He is challenged in protecting his annual harvest − super-sized pumpkins weighing up to 1200 pounds − from curious animals and teenagers. Disappointed with the numerous false positives from his previous motion detection software, he tried Vitamin D Video. Where his more expensive solution had failed, Vitamin D Video dramatically improved his results with very little effort. That meant 90% fewer false positives and a much more efficient way of scanning what went on in the garden when he wasn't there.
No wonder Spot has put on weightDan Kreifus, from Mt. Laurel, NJ, used Vitamin D Video at his home to find his dogwalker taking food from his pantry, and in fact, not even walking his dog. Bad dog walker!
“I set it up in my house on a laptop and was able to catch my dog walker stealing some food from my pantry as well as not actually walking my dog! (which explains the mess we would have at times).”
Ensuring profits don't get trimmedThe owner of a hair salon franchise who has deployed IP cameras throughout his stores is concerned that all of the store’s cash transactions aren’t making it into the register. He is using Vitamin D Video to remotely understand how many customers are seated for what purpose throughout each day, so that he can compare the number of treatments to the daily revenues.
Getting educated in securityA Silicon Valley high school invested in an enterprise-grade security system to manage over a dozen cameras. The cost of using video analytics, however, was so high that the school chose not to turn the feature on. The alternative? Have the vice principal periodically scan through hours of recorded video.
Vitamin D Video is enabling the school to eliminate the manual labor and present the administrative team with a daily reel of all incidents, as well as immediate alerts when a violation is taking place. The flexibility of Vitamin D Video to be set up for discreet investigations in particular trouble areas is another advantage over the school's more expensive system.
