Arecont Vision megapixel cameras ensure peace of mind for the Police Department in Monroe, New York. The state-of-the-art video surveillance solution provides proactive security, protects the department from liability claims and monitors prisoners 24/7 from the time they enter the police department building until they leave.
Located on the main street in the Village of Monroe, the Police Department is housed in a freestanding building with open spaces on both sides; a front entrance with limited access that abuts the sidewalk and a back parking lot with an entrance. Arecont Vision's AV8185DN SurroundVideo® 8 megapixel 180-degree panoramic cameras were installed at the front and back entrances. The cameras provide wide panoramic views, taking the place of multiple standard-resolution cameras that would be needed to cover the same area and automatically switch from colour to black-and-white in the evening. The cameras' Moonlight™ mode ensures clearly visible night time images of the outdoor perimeter.
Indoors, Arecont Vision AV2155DN MegaDome® 2 megapixel cameras are installed in the hallways and in the cell areas to provide high-detail imaging. The cameras deliver six times the resolution of standard IP video surveillance cameras at 24 frames per second (fps), and the day/night feature ensures superior images from the cell area when overhead lights are turned down at night.
“Installation of Arecont Vision cameras at the Monroe Police Department provides high quality video to enable us to analyse and verify any suspicious activity as well as to support improved situational awareness,” said Detective Jim Frankild. “It's a very effective tool for our department.”
“Arecont Vision's megapixel camera solution reduced the overall system cost for the Monroe Police Department,” said Chris Sessa, Regional Director of Sales, Arecont Vision. “Since fewer cameras were needed, installation costs dropped with less labour and less wiring, and since the cameras are powered over the network (PoE), no external power was required.”
