About SnoTemp

SnoTemp Cold Storage, founded in 1957, is a family-run business with a legacy of providing temperature-controlled storage solutions. Rooted in strong family values of trust and hard work, the company manages 805,000 sq ft of warehouse space across Eugene, Albany, and Redmond, Oregon. The team at SnoTemp is celebrated for its reliability and integrity, which significantly contribute to the company's ability to offer dependable service to its customers.

Situation Prior to Coram AI

Given the large footprint of SnoTemp and extensive ground operations, physical security will always be foundational for the team to maintain their service. To that end, SnoTemp has been an early adopter of security cameras, installing their first system in 2010. They mostly used disparate systems, engineered to work at a specific site, causing security gaps across the system. With a combination of Honeywell, Hikvision, and GW Security cameras, the SnoTemp team ended up sinking exorbitant costs and time into system upkeep. Frequently, the cameras would go offline and require manual attention.

Challenges with a Disparate Camera System

  • Separate systems: The collection of security IT created significant maintenance overhead. Each location had a different setup, and there was no way to see everything in a single pane of glass.
  • Frequent and unexpected outages: Cameras would go offline randomly, causing stretches of unrecorded time. When the IP address changed due to DHCP, the cameras went offline and did not automatically register the new IP address.
  • No enterprise capabilities: The Hikvision and Honeywell solutions were hard to maintain, limited in remote access, and required hours of manual supervision due to a lack of footage insights.

“It has been hit and miss, and it has been a pain point that not all systems were on the same platform. Our previous systems were not enterprise systems.”- Shawn Thomas, Director of IT

Success with Coram AI

When evaluating the next vendor, SnoTemp looked at Coram AI, Verkada, Voxel AI, and GW Security. Among those, Coram AI fit all the needs and gave the most modern features to SnoTemp.
