Video technology can be used in various areas of a gas station to monitor and manage its operations.
For example, the flexible high technology of compact ultra HD cameras is perfect for monitoring the service station shop and other areas where cash transactions take place. Thanks to high resolution and WDR, these cameras guarantee crystal clear images even in the awkward mixed light conditions of the shopping area and cash desks.
Data can be combined with that from a POS cash register screen – for example, showing video evidence of a customer with the relevant POS transaction. This can also be useful to solve disputes.
Outside, on the other hand, is mostly about monitoring vehicles. Using ANPR cameras connected to the pumps makes it easy to find unpaid petrol fills. ANPR data can also be matched with the database of known petrol thieves, so they can be closely monitored.
ANPR can also be used for parking detection – to see if people are overstaying, for example.
