Some of the main criticalities of logistic platforms are the high number of distribution points (hubs) – with the related remote control of sites and goods stored – and the management of numerous means of transport that transfer goods to the different warehouses with 24-hour movements and deliveries.

An accurate and timely control and monitoring of perimeters and accesses is fundamental to control incoming and outgoing carriers and to remotely check loading and unloading operations. In some contexts, organizations may require the localization and dynamic tracking of the movement of vehicles and operators within the site. This should be added to the complexity of the control of the goods stored; the warehouse has a significant impact on the level of the service delivered (it must ensure adequate response times, with processes and structures that minimize damages and non-conformities) and on operating costs.

In the awareness that companies have multiple security, safety and technological control requirements in this application context, Surveye provides effective and efficient security solutions to respond to criticalities, such as:

  • Theft
  • Traffic management
  • Access control
  • Dock and loading/unloading ramp control
  • Control of storage areas
  • Safety (checks that loading\unloading operations are carried out safely, according to the applicable protocols)


Surveye’s experience in the logistic sector allows us to support our Customers in every phase – from the choice to the design and installation of the most suitable system – and to provide them with continuous technical support over time, all in compliance with the applicable legislation.

Surveye’s philosophy for logistic environments provides a centralized, flexible, scalable and updatable solution to supervise the various signals provided by the sensors of the security systems of the site (headquarters) and branch offices (hubs) distributed in the territory. Access control and video-surveillance can also be managed from the same centralized control room.

The Model developed in the logistics sector is based on a risk analysis that simultaneously takes into account Safety and Security.

Surveye designs and installs advanced solutions for industrial alarm, fire detection, access control, industrial video-surveillance and automation systems.

An alarm system in the logistics sector is designed, installed and serviced in compliance with the applicable CEI 79-3 and EN 50131-1 standards.

As these are high-risk sites, the design of the system must evaluate multiple variables: cost of possible theft or damages (malicious or caused by operators in general), continuously changing internal logistics due to the transit of the goods, loading/unloading area, continuous entrance/exit vehicle traffic, localization of storage areas in poorly supervised areas.

Therefore, the development of the project must start from a careful assessment analysis of the external context (monitoring of access points, protection along the perimeter, neighbouring areas) and then continue with an analysis of the internal context of the entire area and buildings (access to the buildings and internal premises with relative sensitive areas that require a greater degree of security, such as data centers, executive offices, archives, safes).

The technology to be used is oriented toward the following solutions for outdoor areas:

  • Thermal Technology and Video Analytics
  • Scanner radar
  • External barriers


for interiors:

  • Seismic sensors
  • Smoke Fogging systems
  • Next generation radar

A video-surveillance system in the logistics sector is designed, installed and serviced in compliance with the applicable EN 62676 standards.

In addition to being developed for visual monitoring and the related archiving of the areas identified in compliance with the applicable privacy regulations (EU 679/16), video systems are designed by focusing mainly on loading/unloading docks, as these are considered to be one of the main criticalities of the facility. Perimeter monitoring is obviously also crucial.

The technology to be used is oriented toward the following solutions for outdoor areas:

  • Thermal Technology and Video Analytics
  • PTZ systems provided with auto-tracking and moving object tracking functions
  • Ultra high resolution megapixels

while for interiors, the main element is the use of Megapixel and Multi-Sensor technologies.

A careful analysis and design of the network infrastructure capable of supporting the transit of data with extreme reliability, also in terms of cybersecurity, is essential. No less important is the choice of an open control software platform, which must comply with some simple rules: stability, scalability and ease of use by the operator and user.

A fire detection system in a logistic facility is designed, installed and serviced in compliance with the applicable UNI 9795, UNI EN54 and UNI 11224 standards.
Fire safety involves many areas of expertise: from smokefiregas detection to evacuation and extinguishing systems. The protection of people and property is the result of the optimal synergy between these elements and technologies.
In storage areas, the design must be based on a careful analysis of the spaces that takes into account some specific features that make smoke detection a complex task:

  • If there is a large amount of air in the storage area, smoke is easily diluted by the large volumes available, making detection more difficult.

  • Rooms often have multiple accesses and doors, which often remain open; air currents through these passages further dilute smoke.

  • Warehouses are often characterized by very high ceilings; smoke tends to stratify below the ceiling, reaching the point detectors only when the fire has enough energy to push the fumes up.

  • Shelving in a storage area can trap fumes; a fire that develops slowly without flames may not be detected for several hours, as the smoke will reach the ceiling only when the fire has reached a considerable size.

When the context has been analysed, the correct fire detection system must be selected to ensure:

  • Maximum flexibility, to detect a fire as quickly as possible

  • A wide sensitivity range, to be able to set different signalling thresholds, adapting them to different environments and avoid false alarms

  • A peer-to-peer communication network, to ensure maximum flexibility in placing and programming detectors and displays

  • False alarm discrimination, for a reliable performance in the presence of dust and other causes of false alarms

  • Programmable alarm thresholds, to manage a better calibrated reaction with the different phases of the fire, from the first alarm related to the control stage to the fourth alarm level, when the fire has to be extinguished.

  • Event log and preparation of a report, to investigate faults, alarms, malicious actions and smoke patterns.

  • Absolute detection systems, to ensure a reliable and safe detection even for those fires that develop very slowly.

Surveye designs fire detection systems by assessing the context and the specific needs of the site; for this purpose, it is also fundamental to develop the procedure to be implemented in case of fire ignition in order to safeguard the personnel and avoid significant losses and damage to the company’s image.

Risk analysis, maintenance and training are key elements for effective and timely protection.

Surveye is always close to the Customer with its distributed and certified Technical and Sales network for 360-degree support.

An access control system in a logistic facility is designed, installed and serviced in compliance with the applicable EN 60839-11-2 and EN 60839-11-1 standards.

Access control services are solutions based on a physical and electronic architecture that prevents unauthorized persons, vehicles or property from entering specific areas, while ensuring access to those who are regularly authorized.

The functions that an access control system in the logistics sector should implement are:

  • To recognize and evaluate access requests for 24 hours: if the access request is legal based on predefined criteria, to remove the physical obstacle to passage, otherwise to reject transit and keep the barrier in place;

  • To report any attempt at unauthorized access or tampering.

In typical logistics areas, the access control systems implemented should harmonize physical measures – such as mantraps and turnstiles – with electronic control equipment, such as card readers, metal detectors, video cameras and video intercoms

To meet specific needs we can also provide access control solutions equipped with biometric technologies, including fingerprint Analytics, hand geometry, or systems that recognize the specific characteristics of the face, of the iris or of the voice.

The adoption of an electronic access control system in a company could provide an effective prevention and protection measure, as regulating and monitoring the entrances and exits from a building in a timely and secure manner allows to anticipate risks by appropriately filtering users.
