US Housing Authority increases operator productivity and reduces investigation with Honeywell IP-based video management

In existence since the late 1930s, the Trenton Housing Authority (THA) provides decent and affordable housing for low and moderate-income residents throughout the city of Trenton, New Jersey, USA. Its mission is to provide safe and sanitary housing for residents and to lead them toward self-sufficiency. For the past 30 years, the THA has served nearly 2,000 households. Today, the THA is an autonomous body that is chartered by the State of New Jersey, partially funded by the federal government and governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners. The situation Previously, the THA relied on 11 unarmed officers patrolling various developments to maintain safety and security. Due to the prevalence of drugs and guns in the area, this was a dangerous situation for both the unarmed officers and the THA residents. As a result, THA officials sought to create a safer environment, where people could feel comfortable walking to and from their housing units, regardless of the time of day. Officials also wanted to provide officers with tools that could help them become more efficient and effective. To accomplish this, THA officials began by distributing an RFP to security companies with the goal of creating safer surroundings for THA residents and officers. After a careful ranking process based on a variety of factors, the THA selected integrator ComTec Systems, Inc. of Vineland, N.J. As ComTec employees began to address the needs and concerns of the authority, they realised the THA needed a full-scale security initiative, so they set about to design a unique solution. The solution Since the housing communities were spread across multiple locations throughout the city, THA officials sought complete convergence of all THA video. Officials also needed the video to be centralised so they could manage it more cost-effectively. "One of the challenges in our industry is gathering information from locations across an entire city and sending it back to one location. And how do you balance cost and technology effectively, so it works?" says Michael Vertolli, president of ComTec Systems. In response to these needs, ComTec designed a unique wireless network to transmit CCTV, access and other data to a command and control centre. The wireless solution proved to be especially economical, since it did not require putting fibre in the ground and trenching or digging up existing environments. A critical piece of the installation is Honeywell's MAXPRO® VMS - a unique video management system that bridges the gap between analogue and digital video systems. The benefits A critical piece of the installation is Honeywell's MAXPRO VMS - a unique video management system Using the facility’s existing video infrastructure, MAXPRO VMS collects, manages and presents video in a crystal-clear way. “MAXPRO VMS is ideal for a central command centre where multiple operators are required to view numerous cameras all at the same time,” explains Maureen Bruen, regional sales manager of Honeywell’s Video Systems. “For the THA, this solution enables the integration of all camera systems and provides a single user interface to manage the entire system.” Now, multiple operators can share incidents with other operators using simple drag-and-drop functionality. This increases operator productivity and, most importantly, reduces investigation time. The THA works closely with local police departments to solve any crimes that occur in their jurisdiction. With this technology in place, officials can make real-time decisions about investigations. Police can come to the THA command centre to view any criminal activity, and camera shots can also be sent to a desktop in a patrol car, further aiding investigations. The THA is extremely pleased with this powerful system. Since its implementation, crime has decreased, and illegal dumping and unauthorised use of certain areas has also been significantly reduced. Most importantly, the community feels secure, fulfilling the THA's mission to create safer communities for its residents.

Honeywell and BPS provide comprehensive security at Ulster Hospital
Honeywell and BPS provide comprehensive security at Ulster Hospital

Built in 1962 and located in East Belfast, the Ulster Hospital, with a staff of around 3,500, provides acute services to a population of over 260,000.  In 2001, the Accident and Emergency (A&E) services, that had originally planned to care for 25,000 patients a year, were dealing with over 70,000. The hospital, also a designated Cancer Unit, was in need of more outpatient facilities, including Imaging Services.The maternity and theatre blocks required a thorough update to bring them up to 21st century care standards.  All these factors created a requirement for a major redevelopment plan which was to span over seven years, with a budget of £98 million.The situationPrior to 2001 when the plans for the hospital redevelopment were announced, the hospital was operating a minimal security system from a temporary room within the hospital building. It consisted of CCTV coverage limited to some areas of the main building and to the main front car parks. The security installations from various manufacturers were reaching the end of their life expectancy. The new hospital would have some of its infrastructure refurbished, whilst a range of new facilities would be built including a Maternity Unit, a Renal Unit, a terraced car park, a specialist Security Control Centre and a Critical Care Centre as part of the first phase. From the start, the Trust management team was determined that the new facilities would meet the latest safety and security standards to protect staff, patients, visitors and assets. To find the security solution that would suit their needs, the Trust undertook a tender process lasting two and a half years to select a preferred supplier, not only for the first part of the project, but for the redevelopment as a whole.    The Trust management team was determined that the new facilities would meet the latest safety and security standardsThe solution:  The Trust chose the Fire & Security integrator Building Protection Systems Northern Ireland Ltd. (BPS) to carry out the project.  A significant factor in the choice of security integrator was BPS's comprehensive experience in the new build sector, its strong design capabilities, and involvement from the outset.  BPS has been able to assist in the design of the overall security solution as well as the installation of the system. Ricky Barker, Hotel Services Manager, responsible for security issues management, and the implementation of security systems at the Ulster Hospital comments: "The Trust sought a preferred supplier of security systems that would facilitate the standardisation of security equipment and provide integrated security solutions. BPS recommended Honeywell." The first major phase in the redevelopment included the creation of a new Renal Unit, a new Maternity Unit, and a   The Honeywell Digital Video Recording system ensures all video information is suitably stored and is easily retrievablenew mult-istorey car park for the use of both staff and visitors. It has been critical to give hospital staff and visitors full confidence to use the new facility by demonstrating the high level of investment in security to ensure their safety. In total, 52 cameras, a mixture of Honeywell fully functional domes and vandal resistant fixed domes with day/night capabilities have been installed in and around the new car park, including in the car park lifts. The Trust also required that it's old and new CCTV systems be fully integrated. It was critical that the new system could accommodate a doubling of installed cameras at completion of the modernization project. This has been achieved through the installation of a Honeywell Maxpro matrix which currently controls over 160 cameras, increasing to 320 in the future. The final building under construction as part of the first phase is the Critical Care Centre where an additional 31 cameras are due to be added. A key requirement of the Trust was round the clock monitoring of the hospital premises to guarantee a 24/7 protection of staff, patients and visitors, and the smooth operation of the car park and other essential infrastructure.  This has been achieved through a brand new and state of the art Security Control Centre, opened in February 2007. The Honeywell Digital Video Recording system ensures all evidential video information is suitably stored and is easily retrievable in the event of a security breach or a health and safety incident. Calvin Adams, director of BPS said: "After a detailed evaluation of a number of manufacturers, we chose Honeywell because of the strength of their video solutions. On such a long project, we were looking for a manufacturer who would be flexible as the project requirements developed, would ensure new products were backwards compatible so that investments weren't wasted, and whose systems could grow and develop with the site's needs.  We were looking for a manufacturer who could really provide a future proof solution for our designs. Honeywell have done just that."Benefits:Using a solution from Honeywell, the Ulster Hospital now has a state of the art security system ensuring the safety   A key requirement of the Trust was round the clock monitoring of the hospital premises  and security of staff, patients and visitors. Security in the car park, an important element of the project, has been significantly improved thanks to the deterrent effect of the CCTV system against theft and assaults. Using Honeywell HRXD Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), the Trust can retrieve evidence easily, a capability that is regularly exploited by the police in the course of their investigations into crime.  Ricky Barker comments: "Our new security system enables us to monitor aggressive behaviours in areas such as A&E, and to take pre-emptive action. Honeywell equipment is easy to use and of evidential quality, which we required to meet Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) standards relating to recognition and identification of CCTV images." 

Honeywell and Complete Security provide Wetrok with comprehensive loss prevention solutions
Honeywell and Complete Security provide Wetrok with comprehensive loss prevention solutions

  The Wetrok building which has now got the security services of Honeywell and Complete SecurityWetrok has been at the forefront of cleaning technology since 1948, providing customer satisfaction with a comprehensive range of products and services for professional cleaning. In March 1982, Industro-Clean and Wetrok signed an agreement which laid the foundation for Wetrok South Africa to become a significant player in the South African cleaning market. The head office is located in Honeydew, north-west of Johannesburg, and there are 11 branches across South Africa and a distributor in Namibia.The SituationThe business headquarters in Johannesburg comprises of offices, a training centre and warehouses; many of the products, including equipment, cleaning agents and consumables are stored both within the warehouse and externally at all times of the day. Cleaning products and consumables have an intrinsic value and a high resale value on the grey market.Until recently, to protect the facility and its valuable stock, Wetrok employed a basic CCTV system and contracted extra security guards for out of hour's surveillance at a cost of 7,000 rand per month. Wetrok experienced high levels of theft equivalent to one million rand, which increased every year and where the majority of theft was internal. Products were mainly being illegally smuggled out of the premises by passing the goods over the perimeter wall. In addition, the man-guarding service was not reliable. The incumbent CCTV cameras were either broken or the cables had been cut to prevent surveillance and detection, resulting in the monitoring company often consulting blank screens.A separate building used as a storage area was largely unmanned, which made it difficult to monitor activity and suspicious behaviour within this building. The facility does not have the capacity to house a security control room and there were no standard operating procedures in place for effective escalation of security incidents.The challenge for Complete Security was to provide a remotely monitored solution which encompassed state-of-the-art CCTV and access control, and would effectively reduce shrinkage, without compromising Wetrok's business operations.  Situations have become quite safe at Wetrok premises after being secured through Honeywell security systems The Solution Complete Security chose Honeywell Video Analytics software suite Active Alert as the basis of the loss prevention solution at Wetrok. "The Analytics suite was the key to Honeywell being chosen for this installation and it was easy to configure," said Sean Stirrat, Complete Security. "The ability to proactively deter theft from a remote location was critical in being able to satisfy the client's requirements."There are 12 channels of video analytics deployed through a dedicated server running Honeywell's Active Alert suite. A mix of analogue and IP cameras based around the perimeter and in key locations are connected to the analytics server. Honeywell EQUIP HD4DIPX and HCS544IPX IP cameras have been installed as part of the network enabled CCTV system. In addition, Honeywell HD4DX vandal resistant mini domes are deployed to maximise the hybrid functionality of the Fusion digital video recorder (DVR). In total, two 16 channel Fusion DVRs record 32 channels of video from across the site. Remote Client software has been installed at Complete Security's new control room to remotely monitor all analytics channels from the site.The Active Alert software greatly increases event detection accuracy while virtually eliminating false alarms and is used to full effect when monitoring suspicious behaviour. Complete Security's operators are alerted to suspicious behaviour along the perimeter before actual incidents occur. The individuals are initially challenged by audio warnings on-site, before the incident is escalated to a local security response team.  Video analytics software suite was the prime reason for induction of Honeywell in the Wetrok security projectThe Honeywell Fusion DVR enables security staff to monitor and record remote images using the Fusion Video Management Software (FVMS). This is particularly useful in the event of incidents requiring police intervention, such as theft. The Fusion DVR allows stills from a particular point in time to be easily downloaded and printed and these can then be used to aid the investigation of a crime or for evidence. FVMS allows multiple cameras from multiple sites to be viewed from a remote location on one screen at the same time. The operator can then digitally select any given camera view for closer inspection with the easy to use drag and drop functionality.In addition to the CCTV and Active Alert analytics systems, Complete Security also installed Honeywell NetAXS to control access to the warehouse. Again, eliminating the need for an on-site control room, NetAXS is comprehensively managed and monitored from Complete Security's own facility in a remote location. Thus, Wetrok does not have to worry about training and maintenance involved in locally managing the access control system and associated software. Complete Security maintains and administers the system using a web browser without having to visit the site.Honeywell OmniProx readers are used on the doors as part of the NetAXS access control system. OmniProx readers combine unique functionality, high-quality engineering and design - offering superb reliability and a consistent read range. Increased security functions like optical tamper and security fixings prevent unauthorised users from removing the reader from the wall or attempting to compromise the system.Importantly, Complete Security worked closely with Wetrok to define a set of standard operating procedures (SOP), based on the Honeywell technology installed. The SOP established a process for effective escalation of security incidents which was not previously in place. "The Analytics suite was the key to Honeywell being chosen for this installation and it was easy to configure," Sean Stirrat, Complete Security. Combined security solutions of Honeywell and Complete security have yielded positive results for WetrokThe BenefitsThe Honeywell camera and recording solutions, video analytics and NetAXS systems have combined to give Complete Security total remote management of Wetrok's on-site security. The client has saved the cost of having an on-site control room, plus the cost and training associated with having dedicated security personnel, particularly out-of-hours.Audio warnings following Active Alert alarms have enabled the majority of incidents to be prevented before they would occur. If the threat continues, then an appropriate security response is summoned via the standard operating procedure. A further benefit has been the use of the analytics system to check that security guards are conducting their patrols in a proper manner. Wetrok are able to verify that guards have been in certain locations at predetermined times. Wetrok has experienced a remarkable reduction in losses since the installation was completed. As a result, the initial investment in the security system was recouped within one year of its installation."The systems in place are working fabulously and the work done by Complete Security and Honeywell is excellent," stated Paul Wilde, Divisional Director, Wetrok. "Stock loss in now immeasurably smaller compared to our previous losses which were in excess of one million rand."
