Hikvision Surveillance System Secures Marijuana Grow Facility in Boulder, Colo.


A security system provided by Hikvision USA Inc., the North American leader in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products and solutions, was installed by A-1 Security Systems to meet all requirements set forth by Colorado’s Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) and to ensure comprehensive security at the newly retrofitted building for 14er Gardens in Boulder, Colo.

“Achieving the MED-required 40 days of on-site and off-site recordings is a big deal,” said Sofia Aguilar, sales manager and partner at A-1 Security. “Previously the only way to do this was using access encoders and decoders, or access cameras, which increased the system price by more than 40 percent. With the Hikvision iVMS system they were able to build a platform around Hikvision products, solving the state’s problem of how to record at a reasonable price.”

case study about the installation was posted on the Hikvision website.

A-1 Security recommended and installed 95 Hikvision security cameras including indoor dome cameras and outdoor bullet cameras with multiple 32-channel Hikvision NVRs with 48 TB of storage. Surveillance cameras must record non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week since MED requirements do not allow motion-activated recording.

“Hikvision systems and A-1 security has become the standard we use to operate. The Hikvision system offers a better platform that is more affordable than prior systems we used,” said Evan Anderson, owner of 14er Gardens. With Hikvision’s iVMS-4200 app, Anderson can access video footage on his smartphone and PC, and easily show state officials what is happening at a moment’s notice.

“The Boulder facility shows how our integrators work hand in hand with clients to develop industry standards that offer the best in video surveillance at a competitive price point for the value it offers the market,” said Alex Asnovich, Head of Marketing, Hikvision North America.
