Smyths Toys Superstores & Mirasys

Smyths Toys Superstores, the largest toy retailer in Ireland, was facing a challenge. They needed an easy-to-use video surveillance system in their stores that could offer better performance and image quality. The problem was that the old system could no longer meet the needs of the stores. The old system could not store data from a sufficient number of days, and the centralised monitoring of different stores was also not possible.

The Mirasys system met the security needs of Smyths Toys Superstores together with its camera partner Axis. According to the Facilities Manager for Smyths Toys Superstores, Stephen McGivern, it is now easy for the store managers to remotely track the events that have happened. The centralised monitoring was also an absolute requirement. “Centralised monitoring for all stores for out of hours alarms was also a key requirement“, Stephen McGivern says.

The Mirasys system supports all of the Axis camera features and is able to detect different events accurately from a wide picture. In particular, the corridor format features that provide efficient surveillance of the aisles have made it possible to reduce the number of cameras.

Stephen McGivern compliments the new security surveillance solution of the stores:
“The key requirements were met, and we acquired an efficient substitute for our previous surveillance system – without a monumental cost increase. Thanks to Mirasys and Axis, we can expand our current video surveillance system as the number of stores increases.”
