Basler IP Cameras Protect Finnish Churches from Vandalism
Southern Ostrobothnia is a region located in Western Finland famous for its beautiful countryside, historic villages, and important cultural monuments. Three such cultural treasures are the wooden churches of Ilmajoki, Kurikka, and Jurva. Finland has a long tradition of wooden churches, dating as far back as the 17th century. The majority of these churches are still in use today. However, due to a rise of vandalism in recent years, it has become more and more difficult to protect these important historic buildings from damage. Therefore, insurance premiums are high, especially if churches are not equipped with a security system. After several incidents including broken windows and deliberate toppling of gravestones, parish authorities in Southern Ostrobothnia decided to install an Basler IP camera solution to stop the vandalism to their churches.
