Le Meurice Hotel strengthens its security with Samsung cameras and digital video recorders
Le Meurice Hotel strengthens its security with Samsung cameras and digital video recorders

Le Meurice can claim to have the highest occupancy rates, turnover and profitability of all of the seven Parisian palaces. Ideally located in the very heart of Paris and facing the Tuileries garden, Le Meurice offers 160 luxury rooms located though out its seven floors. The hotel's bar, two restaurants, several lounges and function rooms are part of the space open to the general public, as well as numerous lobbies and stairways. The hotel is accessible 24/7. Several security guards are permanently deployed at the hotel with one of the security guards tasked to keep a close eye over the video surveillance monitors. This service is subcontracted to Commodore, a company that has specific experience and know-how in respect to hotel security. The hotel wanted to upgrade its existing CCTV to both extend the areas covered and record higher quality images. A detailed risk assessment was carried out, followed by the production of a specification of the hotel's technical requirement with a proviso that the chosen supplier must have proven track record of reliability and post sales technical support. Of prime importance in the design of the system was that the Le Meurice has listed interior architecture, which greatly limited the cabling options as well as the size and appearance of cameras. In fact, the existing cabling had to be re-used in the new system. New cameras were installed to monitor floor access doors from the stairs so that people can be viewed entering and leaving. All entrances to the whole non-private interior space are now monitored, with a total surface of about 10,000 m² out of a total of 35,000 m². The CCTV system covers all public spaces and circulation areas including, all stairways, kitchens and laundry rooms, as well as private areas such as the inner courtyards and the roof. Cameras are deliberately visible with a view to deterring any unwelcome activity. One of the key areas being monitored is a jewellery gallery where items from prestigious Parisian jewellers are on display.  A gallery displaying items from prestigious Parisian jewellers is one of the key areas being monitored A total of 68 analogue cameras were already installed and many of these have been replaced with higher-quality models. The system is now comprised of 94 cameras, which includes Samsung analogue cameras, speed domes and some small bullet cameras. The requirement for all of these cameras was that they had to be aesthetically acceptable whilst acting as a powerful deterrent. In addition, image quality had to be of a consistent high quality even in backlight conditions. The Samsung SID-460 mini dome was chosen for its ability to generate very high quality colour images at 580 TV lines resolution as well as 3-axis positioning of its varifocal lens. The SID-460 incorporates Samsung Super Noise Reduction (SSNRII) technology, which eliminates image noise in low light conditions. This allows consistent high quality colour reproduction even in very low-light conditions, as well as saving up to 70% on the recording device and the reduction of bandwidth requirements when networking. All cameras are connected over coaxial cables to Samsung 32 channel SVR-3200 DVRs installed in a control room secured with access control. These recorders were chosen for their high processing and storage capabilities. Just three of the SVR-3200 are required and provide a significant reduction in heat dissipation from the previous equipment. 500GB video storage versions of the SVR-3200 were ordered and then upgraded to their full 8TB internal capacity by using easy to install HDD upgrade kits. The SVR-3200 is supplied with licence-free Centralised Management Software (CMS), which gives users full control of DVR functions from anywhere on the network. Images from all of the cameras are recorded at real-time 25 frames per second when triggered by motion detection. The high quality images can be stored for up to 15 days thanks to the high storage capacity of the SVR-3200. Live images are displayed and monitored in the guardhouse on three 19-inch monitors with cameras grouped by area. Motion detection alarms on external cameras trigger an automatic display of an intrusion event with operators being able to look at pre-intrusion images. Security personnel use a control keyboard with a joystick to control the cameras. The installation was successfully completed without any delays or hitches and the hotel now has a CCTV system which is capable of capturing, recording and storing images to their required standard. The recently installed Samsung cameras and DVRs are supplied with a three-year warranty guarantee whilst a spare hard disk is kept on site ensuring a fast replacement should the need arise. Access to images via the hotel's PCs is regarded as a definite bonus in that it is a very convenient and efficient method of viewing or searching for images. Equally important, the system was designed with the future in mind and additional cameras can therefore be easily and quickly installed in the future if required. The client is very happy with the quality of the upgraded CCTV system and considerable goodwill has been created between everyone involved in the success of the project including the engineering firm of AB Associates, the system builder, Stentorius and the installer, AM Sécurité.

Bosch Security Systems AutoDome cameras enhance security for Netherlands police force
Bosch Security Systems AutoDome cameras enhance security for Netherlands police force

The last day of April 2013 was a historical date in the Netherlands. Following his mother’s abdication, Prince Willem-Alexander’s swearing-in as the new king means the country once again has a male monarch for the first time in 123 years. As a result, the program for the festivities on this Queen’s Day in Amsterdam was particularly comprehensive. However, this also posed a large challenge for Amsterdam’s police force, who had to monitor the large crowds expected around the castle on the Dam, as well as alongside the route of the celebrations. Another task, of course, was to shield the royal couple and the visitors from any attack. These concerns were justified not only because of the scale of the event, but also because of tragic incidents that occurred on Queen’s Day in the past.     For these reasons, Amsterdam’s police looked for a partner who was able to support them in terms of video surveillance as well as monitoring the streams of visitors. They decided on the Dutch company, Connection Systems, which specializes in the video surveillance of large-scale events and freely moving crowds. Connection Systems was founded in 2000 and has been utilising Bosch Security Systems solutions from the very beginning.    In order to reinforce the police’s own monitoring network, 75 additional Bosch AutoDome cameras were installed in Amsterdam. These were integrated within the existing security network, and positioned six metres above ground level. In addition, the cameras were connected to 35 UPS boxes that would have maintained operations in the event of a power blackout. The installation of the surveillance system took three weeks and was ready in time for all the rehearsals necessary prior to April 30. This was to ensure that all likely risks during the event were covered, and that the police would always be in full control of the situation.    Connection Systems decided to use Bosch cameras for two major reasons: their robust construction makes them easy to mount and dismount, and the permanent availability of Bosch’s technical support service. Frank Wagemans, Director at Connection Systems, pointed out after the ceremonies that not one event had failed in the company’s history when using this camera solution. Thus, everyone involved in the investiture on April 30 will remember the event as having been run perfectly.     For more information on Bosch AutoDome products, visit www.boschsecurity.us.
