Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 25, 2009 -
911 Security Cameras Inc. designed and installed an integrated IP video surveillance system for the Deer Park Police Station. 911 Security's IP video surveillance solution gives the department centralized control over all aspects of security. The surveillance system provides 24 hour monitoring of all areas of the department's operations including booking areas, holding cells, interview rooms, parking lots and the entrances. A key task of the project was planning the layout of the IP security cameras, to guarantee the optimum balance between security coverage and cost.
Deer Park is a southeast Texas City located within the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown Metropolitan Area. The Deer Park Police department is no stranger to utilizing state-of-the art technology. Last year the department was awarded funds to install the new Coban digital video recording system into ten of their marked patrol cars. The city of Deer Park employs a total of 61 licensed police officers and 46 full and part time civilians.
Major savings in infrastructure costs can be owed to the use of IP camera technology. An IP camera's video signal transmits directly over Ethernet, using existing local or wide area network infrastructure. Ethernet also allows transmission of Pan/Tilt/Zoom, or PTZ, camera control commands on a single cable. In addition, video intelligent analytics software is embedded within the camera circuitry, as opposed to the server, resulting in cost savings and performance improvements. The camera's analytics will help the police department analyze video quicker and with more efficiency while maintaining the integrity of the digital evidence.
Key to the success of the project can be contributed to the use of 21 ACTi 1.3 mega pixel cameras with recording resolution of 1260*1024. The benefit of implementing mega pixel cameras resulted in a significant cost savings for the police department. Mega pixel technology reduced the number of cameras required because the image produced covers three times more area than a conventional camera.
911 Security Camera's team layered the new IP access control on top of the police station's existing access control system. The new access control system manages 21 interior/exterior doors with full integration into the complete system. 25 IP cameras are managed by one network management tool. Cameras selected for the project include 21 ACTI 1.3 mega pixel cameras and 4 IP PTZ cameras. 4 of the ACTi 1.3 mega pixel cameras are outside cameras to monitor parking lots, entrances/exits, and perimeters of the police station. 17 of the ACTi 1.3 mega pixel cameras are inside cameras to monitor all activities within the police station.
To manage the access control database and the video files, 911 Security deployed 2 custom built servers powered by Dual Xeon processors equipped with 60 days of storage at 30FPS and 1.3 resolution. NUUO IP video surveillance software manages all the ACTi IP cameras and IP PTZ cameras, allowing the police officers to monitor all camera activity simultaneously on a single network. NUUO video surveillance software was also chosen not only for its flexibility and compatibility but also for its user-friendly interface and rich features. Some such features are built-in web server, remote live viewer, embedded video enhancement tools, and detection of missing or foreign objects.
911 Security Camera Inc. executed the entire security solution for the Deer Park police department from start to finish; Everything from conducting the on-site survey to post installation support was provided by 911 Security Camera's professional surveillance crew. 911 Security was able to supply the Deer Park police department with a superior surveillance system with the desired coverage and image quality at an affordable investment cost. The total job cost totaled to just under $40,000.
