Honeywell Tapped to Overhaul Video Surveillance at Niagara Falls Casino

One of the top tourism attractions in Canada’s famed Niagara Falls, Casino Niagara, will soon feature the latest in surveillance.

Honeywell plans to overhaul the video surveillance system at Casino Niagara. The project includes retrofitting the existing surveillance network with IP video technology that will allow casino officials to use a single command and control center to view and remotely manage the systems at both Casino Niagara and its nearby sister facility, Fallsview Casino.

The project calls for Honeywell to provide its MAXPRO VMS (video management system) and VideoBloX video and audio matrix to oversee the casino, which encompasses 1,600 slot machines, 28 gaming tables, a 12-table poker room and several other attractions. Additionally, it will upgrade the casino’s VCR recording system to an enterprise-wide digital recorder network.

“By consolidating our operation with this new technology, we will be able to better utilize our staffing resources to maximize our operational efficiencies, and provide more proactive and resourceful solutions for the organization as a whole,” said Brian McDonough, director of surveillance, Niagara Casinos.

In addition to MAXPRO VMS, Honeywell’s wide portfolio of entry level-to-enterprise IP offerings includes IP-based network video recorders (NVRs), hybrid digital video recorders (DVRs) and a full line of cameras. These offerings are designed to help organizations simplify the transition from analog to IP video surveillance.

“One of the defining characteristics of this new system will be its ability to accommodate future growth and save money in the long run, while providing effective surveillance that will help the casino protect its patrons and employees,” said Dave Herrington, global account manager for Honeywell Systems. “The open architecture of MAXPRO VMS makes it easier to expand the network as needed, and it only requires operators to learn one system to control everything. It’s a much easier entry to IP video.”
