IP-Based Security System Providing Video Surveillance, Access Control At Dallas Hotel
IP video surveillance technology is providing a fully integrated solution for the newly renovated Sheraton Hotel located in downtown Dallas.
Dallas's largest hotel, formerly the Adam's Mark, is repositioning itself with extensive renovations and upgrades that exemplify the brand's new image. Located in the heart of the Dallas financial district, the Sheraton Dallas Hotel has 1,842 guest rooms and 12 spacious convention areas that offer more then 230,000 square feet of meeting space.
The 96 security camera solution, which was installed by 911 Security Camera, allows the hotel's security personnel to monitor live and recorded video from all the cameras. The system also makes it possible for security to control alarms from the CCTV and access control systems, both of which are integrated over the IP network.
The Sheraton's extensive video surveillance solution includes the installation of 48 analog cameras transferred to IP by an ACTi 16-channel video server, 36 ACTi 1.3 megapixel vandal proof cameras, 12 ACTi 1.3 megapixel vandal proof outdoor dome cameras, three NVR dual core using NUUO IP software and 40 door sensors that serve as intruder protection.
The camera’s 1.3 megapixel resolution with MPEG-4 compression allows users to access superior video quality at affordable bandwidth usage. The cameras, coupled with the full support and compatibility of NUUO's software, give the Sheraton an excellent security solution.
NUUO software integrates ACTi IP cameras into video management software, allowing the security staff to view all cameras in a single platform. NUUO's video surveillance platform was also chosen for its user-friendly interface and rich features. Some such features are built-in Web server, embedded video enhancement tools, and Smart Search for motion, missing object and foreign object.
The full integration of access control, CCTV, and video systems management delivers countless benefits to the hotel. Benefits include faster response time to incidents and greater control over security. The door sensors strategically placed throughout the hotel act as a trigger command that allows security devices to be controlled automatically when the system is armed. If one of the door sensors is armed, the cameras surrounding the sensor will automatically turn on and begin a CCTV recording.
