Therapeutic riding center increases safety, reduces anxiety after theft
MOBOTIX Corp., an industry leading provider of high-resolution, network-based security solutions, today announced that Equest Therapeutic Riding Center has deployed 10 MOBOTIX cameras at its 48-acre facility in Texas. The five MOBOTIX M12 and five D12 cameras, along with MxControlCenter, are being used to enhance security at the riding center to provide peace of mind for students, staff members and horses.
Equest, a non-profit provider of horse-assisted therapies to adults and children with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities through improving muscle tone, strength, flexibility and balance with horseback riding instruction, installed the donated MOBOTIX system after Equest's truck, flatbed trailer and riding lawnmower were stolen from the property overnight.
"If we can't make our clients feel secure, it will greatly affect the degree to which we can help them," said Brad Causey, Facility and Stable Manager, Equest. "How can we help them gain confidence when, at the same time, they are worried about safety in our facility? We have demonstrated that we have these cameras, it has helped increase the perception of safety and will continue to deter suspicious activity."
Equest chose MOBOTIX on the recommendation of system integrator and MOBOTIX partner Global Cyber Access. The comprehensive surveillance system from MOBOTIX was ideal because of the system's IP-centric approach, high-resolution video and cost effectiveness. One high-resolution MOBOTIX camera with 3.1 megapixels records 30 times more detail than traditional CCTV cameras. As a result, larger coverage areas of up to 360-degree views are possible, reducing the number of cameras needed and, therefore, upfront and long-term costs. Unlike other systems, the MOBOTIX decentralized concept incorporates a high-speed computer into every camera, allowing video to be processed on the cameras itself. Network bandwidth is reduced as images do not have to be continuously transferred. MxControl Center, a professional video management software package that includes valuable features such as unlimited users, simple configuration and installation, and a user-friendly interface, is included free of charge with the purchase of a MOBOTIX camera.
"The theft at a great organization like Equest is truly disheartening," said Steve Gorski, General Manager, Americas, MOBOTIX. "But we are glad they now have a robust system in place to ensure history does not repeat itself."
