|IDIS DirectIP surveillance solution provides high-performance monitoring & visual validation of events in the hotel
IDIS has announced the successful roll out of a 64-camera DirectIP surveillance solution at the Park Grand Paddington, part of the Shaftesbury Hotels property group. The implementation by systems integrator, Rukey Solutions Limited, was completed on time and budget, to provide the newly refurbished hotel with a cost effective and high-performance monitoring solution.
The refurbishment provided the hotel management team the opportunity to upgrade the security system to meet the requirements of a busy London hotel with high visitor turnover. Increasingly cumbersome to operate, the existing analogue CCTV system had become difficult to use and required considerable external support and maintenance to keep it running smoothly, while aging cameras could not provide reliable evidence in the event of an incident. The hotel owners wanted to transition to a user-friendly solution with proven capacity for high-quality HD monitoring, flexibility to integrate additional functions and scope to extend monitoring to multiple locations.
A high-performance monitoring solution
Rukey Solutions delivered a centralised IDIS DirectIP HD surveillance solution with two 32-channel NVRs, 64 full-HD dome cameras, multiple refuge call points, integrated alarms, network equipment and IDIS client software as an integrated package. The DirectIP true plug-and-play functionality and auto-configuration dramatically reduced installation time, ensuring a smooth, fast migration to a surveillance system that offers vastly improved coverage, superior image quality and outstanding reporting capabilities. The user-friendly interface ensures that it is ultra-simple to operate, with maximum flexibility to dynamically adapt settings to suit day-to-day needs. It also provides long-term storage capacity, while enabling rapid retrieval of high-resolution images, with minimal maintenance, ensuring a low cost of ownership.
IDIS DirectIP surveillance solution is delivering cost-effective, high-performance monitoring and visual validation of events throughout the hotel. Centralised functionality allows every IP camera to be controlled without individual configuration, while supporting simultaneous live-view, record, playback, remote access and audio/video backup. Shaftesbury Hotels is already extending the IDIS solution to a second hotel.
Darren Morrison of Rukey Solutions Ltd, said: “We had no doubt that IDIS DirectIP™ offered the optimum combination of quality, reliability and usability to meet all the immediate security challenges, while offering the scalability to support Shaftesbury Hotels’ long-term requirements.”
