Located in the busy central business and finance district in Taipei City, Taiwan, the Landis Taipei Hotel is immensely popular among domestic and foreign travellers. This luxurious 5-star hotel features a French Art Deco ambience, earth tone colours, and extravagant vintage decorations in each guest room to create a warm and cosy atmosphere for its guests. The hotel further offers a variety of high-quality services for both business and leisure, such as limousine services, express laundry, wedding planning, a health and fitness centre, exquisite Western and Chinese restaurants, and the Landis SPA, which enhances the perceived value of its guests. Despite all the explicit features of the Landis Taipei, the hotel has not forgotten the fundamental implicit element that constitutes to a world-class hotel - security. In addition to being a place of relaxation, the Landis Taipei Hotel has committed itself to the adoption of a stringent security policy to protect guests and their assets. Hence, the reliable and effective surveillance system is exceptionally important.
Formulating a specific solution for the needs of the hotel
The original surveillance solution employed by the hotel was an analogue-based system. Fully recognising the importance of keeping the quality and effectiveness of hotel security, the hotel adopted an IP-based security surveillance solution of VIVOTEK. Project specifications include enhanced resolution, clear image quality, wide coverage for the outdoor and parking areas. Based on these specifications, a perfect solution for the Landis Taipei was created.
This solution comprised 5 camera models, including Fisheye Fixed Dome Network Camera, Fixed Dome Network Camera, and Fixed Network Camera. Moreover, VIVOTEK’s video management software, the ST7501, was adopted.
Fisheye fixed dome network camera - FE8174V and FE8172
FE8174V and FE8172 are two latest fisheye cameras of VIVOTEK. Both models are equipped with a fisheye lens and a 5-megapixel resolution sensor, making these cameras perfect for monitoring open areas, such as parking lots, streets, and walkways, without blind spots. Four FE8174V models, with vandal-proof IK10-rated and weather-proof IP66-rated housing, are robust choices for outdoor application. They were mounted on the outer walls of the hotel to provide a complete 180º panoramic view of the outer perimeter. 3 FE8172 models were installed to the ceiling of the hotel lobby to achieve a 360 º surround view of the lobby.

Five FD8134 models were installed in separate communal areas in the hotel and 1 FD8363 model was mounted above the main entrance. The FD8134 features a 1-megapixel camera capable of achieving viewing resolutions of 1280X800 at 30fps, making this camera the all-in-one solution for the monitoring of designated areas. The FD8363 is a professional 2-megapixel outdoor camera that offers a viewing resolution of 1080p Full HD at 30 fps. More importantly, the camera is designed with a removable IR-cut filter, 15-meter IR illuminators and WDR Enhancement, providing clear image 24 hours a day and unparalleled visibility under high contrast environments.
Fixed network camera - IP8151
Three IP8151 models were installed outside the elevators of the hotel. This camera features a 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor that achieves a viewing resolution of 1280X1024 at 30 fps. The highlight of this camera is its superb night visibility and support for WDR enhancement, making this model perfect for low-light environments and enclosed spaces.
Reliable security increases the efficiency of hotel operation and management
William Ku, Vice President of VIVOTEK’s International Sales Division, stated, “Hotel security is important to not only the operation and management efficiency of the hotel, but also the safety of customers. Hence, the reliable surveillance system is exceptionally important. Here at VIVOTEK, we endeavour to develop the best surveillance solutions for our clients and, ultimately, create a safe hotel.”
