Security firm says rise in drive-offs results in more interest in unmanned fuel stations
17 September, 2018

A recent spike in drive-offs from forecourts has prompted renewed interest in unmanned fuel stations, according to Metro Security, which provides technology that integrates CCTV and ANPR for both kiosk-driven and pay-at-pump service areas.

"We have seen a lot of interest in the pay-at-pump solutions where we monitor re-fuelling, and even talk to drivers 24/7, remotely," said Trevor Wallace, managing director of Metro. "Obviously, there is a trade-off with potential loss of food and other sales, but many customers are doing the maths in terms of the locations and levels of footfall, and are coming to the conclusion that preventing the fraud is better than trying to re-coup the loss.

Mars, (Metro Analytic Retail Solution) is an integrated technology that links the pumps to CCTV and ANPR, and can be activated remotely to provide high-quality evidence and intelligence of both malicious and non-malicious customer and staff behaviours, all at the push of a button or click of a mouse.
