VIVOTEK Secures India Cosmos Bank’s Greatest Asset:The People of Pune

DATA 2015.10.13

Taipei, Taiwan –VIVOTEK is pleased to announce the successful installation of 132 VIVOTEK network cameras across the headquarters of the India Cosmos Bank, the second oldest & second largest bank in India. Thanks to cooperation with professional partner Bajaj Electricals, the Cosmos Bank is now under the protection of VIVOTEK’s IP surveillance solutions.

Established in 1906, the Cosmos Co-operative Bank has recently completed an impressive 109 years of service, with multi-state status attained in 1997. Cosmos Bank operates a huge network of 140 branches in India spreading across 7 States and in 39 major cities. The headquarters of bank is in a building with an inbuilt datacenter and high security safe in the center of Pune, a thriving metropolis with a population of five million people. In order to come up with a complete security system to minimize the risk impact, Cosmos Bank engaged Bajaj Electricals to deploy VIVOTEK’s solutions to meet three key risks: threats to people; to property; and to the image of the Bank.

A total of 132 VIVOTEK network cameras were deployed, including 103 FD8136 ultra-mini fixed dome network cameras for the main floor area, the lifts and the lobby. The FD8136 features a megapixel sensor, while its tiny size of only 90 mm in diameter offers discreet protection for visitors. For the basement parking area, 29 IP8335H bullet-network cameras were utilized. This camera features day and night functionality and IP67-rated weatherproof housing, allowing Cosmos Bank to build a cost-effective IP surveillance system without additional accessories. Finally, 4 SD8326 speed dome network cameras secured the periphery of Cosmos Bank’s headquarters. With a sophisticated pan/tilt mechanism, this camera provides fast, precise movement with continuous 360-degree pan and 220-degree tilt. It also offers audio detection; by recognizing increases or decreases in sound volume, an additional layer of intrusion detection is ensured.

Sanjeev Gulati, Country Manager of India & SAARC, VIVOTEK said, “There are many exterior factors that have to be considered when setting up a security system for the bank. VIVOTEK is honored to cooperate with a local partner, and provide high-level reliability and thus make the headquarters of Cosmos Bank more secure for staff, the owners, and the bank’s treasured customers.”
