Wirtgen and GEUTEBRÜCK – a special kind of neighborhood assistance


Wirtgen counts on video solutions from GEUTEBRÜCK to secure their company premises for years.

Wirtgen and GEUTEBRÜCK are practically neighbors. Both companies have their headquarters in the municipality of Windhagen, situated near Bonn. As a neighbor and a specialist in video solutions, GEUTEBRÜCK was the obvious choice for Wirtgen to secure their headquarters.

Wirtgen produces high-quality machines for road construction, valuable products that need protection. Accordingly, perimeter protection of the large company site is of the utmost priority for the security team at Wirtgen. The premises needs to be optimally protected against theft, vandalism and unwanted intruders. The installed day and night cameras work around the clock, 7 days a week, to record incidents. The images can be accessed and displayed at any time. For example, if the perimeter protection registers movement at the fence, the associated images are immediately activated on the monitor. This makes it possible to identify, live or in a recording, what has happened and the proper steps can be taken immediately. Even in the dark, thermal imaging cameras provide clear evidence of what happened and when. Even over long distances, in wind and weather and completely independent of the lighting conditions, the crucially important images are available at the right time. In addition, the reliability of turnstiles, barriers and gates is ensured at all times. The system makes it possible to identify who entered or exited the premises, and at what time. To this end, cameras were installed in all the necessary locations.

User interface

Operation of the video system and the visualization of the site takes place over a GEUTEBRÜCKs graphical user interface. It can be highly customized and supports the user in alarm situations by means of its optimized operating concept. It helps the user to quickly access the most suitable camera because it is easy to find his way on his own site maps.
