Security A High Priority At New NHS Primary Care Centre
Security A High Priority At New NHS Primary Care Centre

The Whitegate Health Centre, a new NHS Primary Care Centre located in Blackpool, Lancashire, was opened to the public in September 2009. Eric Wright Construction was the primary building contractor responsible for the project and its Facilities Management division was selected to manage all aspects of the buildings security and general maintenance. The Primary Care Centre was built as part of a wider NHS initiative to bring non emergency / surgical health services such as x-ray, physiotherapy, dental services, general practitioners, a walk-in center, sexual health clinic, podiatry and children's services under one roof to enable hospitals to concentrate on the provision of emergency, surgery and specialist health care. The situation:A comprehensive integrated security solution was required to protect and monitor the patients, staff and visitors who use the facility. The security installer Black Box Security, based in Preston, Lancashire, has worked with Eric Wright for over 25 years and drew on a wealth of necessary experience, expertise and product knowledge to supply the right solution for this project. The security solution specified required integrated digital video recording, access control, intruder detection and CCTV (IP and analog cameras). Working with Honeywell to supply the complete product range meant that Black Box Security benefited from a smooth and uncomplicated contracting process. One of the most important aspects of any major security installation is the capability of different products to seamlessly integrate and interoperate with each other. Honeywell provides an integrated approach to security, creating a seamless system for the security contractor from an installation and maintenance point of view. The end user benefits from a reliable, customised and state-of-the-art integrated security system. "The challenge from our point of view was how to integrate the intruder system, access control, digital recording and CCTV, whilst making the installation and maintenance process as smooth as possible," stated David Barnes at Black Box Security. "As you can imagine, health facilities are high risk sites, so every detail must be accounted for." The solution:A detailed risk assessment along with a method statement was submitted before the work could be started by Black Box Security. This highlighted the potential risks at the site and how the security solution would address these risks. Following the risk assessment, Black Box Security and Eric Wright Facilities Management (on behalf of Blackpool Primary Care Trust) chose an integrated security system from Honeywell. The challenge was to combine access control, CCTV (IP and Analog) and intruder systems into a cohesive integrated and user-friendly system. Honeywell was selected because of the seamless interoperability of WIN-PAK®, Fusion Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and the Galaxy Dimension intruder control panel which ultimately creates a robust and reliable end-to-end solution. For this project the Honeywell WIN-PAK access control system includes 104 smart card proximity readers and twenty seven N-1000 control panels. Expandability is the most important feature of many access control systems. The N-1000 can operate as a standalone two or four door controller, and up to 31 N-1000's may be connected on an RS485 drop-line as needs increase. This includes the readers for the public lifts, thus only allowing public access to the appropriate floors. The challenge was to integrate access control, surveillance and intrusion detection into a user-friendly system WIN-PAK with Galaxy integration provides a single user interface that integrates access control with video and intrusion to create a more robust platform with increased functionality. Functions that have traditionally been tied together through physical relays and input devices are now controlled logically. Full-scale system management of single or multiple locations is possible - resources can be moved, controlled or shared across multiple locations simply by logging on to a system. From a video perspective, WIN-PAK offers complete enhanced digital video integration to the two Fusion DVRs installed in the center's security control room. Integration allows video to be linked to both access control and Galaxy intrusion events and alarms. Video clips can easily be recalled with the software, based on a time or event. With integration, users can have complete camera control, including pan, tilt and zoom, and can verify live users with stored images using the video verification option. The Honeywell EQUIP® HCD554IPX IP cameras were installed in the health center canteen area as a means of preventing shrinkage and monitoring movements and activity within this area of the building. This particular camera is specifically designed for object recognition which is required in locations where variable and low light conditions exist - like a canteen. Set-up is quick and easy and can be customised through a web client or from a Network Video Recorder (NVR). Full and comprehensive training was provided for both the facilities management staff and the onsite security staff. As the main manufacturer involved in the project, Honeywell supported the programme from its Training Centre of Excellence in Runcorn. Operating and maintenance manuals were supplied along with all fitted specifications and drawings in hardcopy version and on CD. This was essential for the client as a reference point or if security settings needed to be changed in the future. As a unit of an NHS Primary Health Care Trust, Whitegate Primary Health Care Centre is responsible for providing a safe and secure environment for patients, staff and visitors. It is accountable to the NHS, the government and the taxpayer. Therefore security is of the utmost importance. "The breadth of the Honeywell product range and our integrated solutions meant that Black Box could specify a complete security system from a single reliable supplier."David Barnes, Blackbox Security The benefitsHospitals and Health Centres are considered to be prime targets for crime. The Honeywell solution incorporating Fusion DVRs and IP cameras provides a robust, accurate and dynamic video system to monitor, capture and record images and footage. The speed, accuracy and efficiency of the system will aid security staff in dealing with any issues which may occur, either in real time or in providing evidence for later actions.   The Honeywell Fusion DVRs and IP cameras provide an accurate and dynamic video system to mintor The seamless integration and interoperability provides major benefits to the customer. For example, the doors controlled by the WIN-PAK access control system are also monitored by cameras enabling the security manager to gain visual verification of all people accessing the controlled doors. The 104 door readers installed throughout the building control access to many different rooms; access to some parts of the center is strictly controlled so only authorized personnel may enter. WIN-PAK enables security staff to know exactly who is in the building and in a particular zone at any given time, combined with integrated video surveillance staff can monitor the building in real time and thus deliver a safer and more secure environment for all. "I've worked with Honeywell on a number of projects and the product range and level of integration on offer certainly makes life easier as an installer," said Barnes. "Add to that the expertise, knowledge and professionalism of the Honeywell team both on-site and behind the scenes makes them our number one choice." The Health Care Trust is now planning to expand the current system by increasing the number of on-site cameras and doors which are access controlled. This is simple to achieve with the WIN-PAK system and allows additional areas of the building to be opened to the public whilst maintaining the appropriate level of security throughout. "This system enables us to monitor the building inside and out so we are able to correct any issues before they turn into problems," commented Dave Hamilton, Facilities Manager at Eric Wright Group. "The safety and security of the staff, patients and physical assets of the health center is our priority. Black Box Security is a great partner to work with and provides support and assistance every step of the way. As the system is user-friendly and operated via a single user interface it is easy to manage both the video and intruder parts of the system. That means my team is always in control."

Shopping Centre Euroma2 Selects Honeywell Digital Video Surveillance With Fusion Digital Video Recorder And ACUIX™ Domes
Shopping Centre Euroma2 Selects Honeywell Digital Video Surveillance With Fusion Digital Video Recorder And ACUIX™ Domes

The client Euroma2, the biggest shopping center in Europe, was opened to the public on the 23rd of June 2008. Situated in Eur, a neighborhood in the outskirts of Rome called Castellaccio, it has five floors, two of which are underground parking. The interior architecture has many domes and columns which imitate historical monuments and are made of marble, stucco and gold finished materials. Euroma2 counts more than 220 shops and 20 restaurants. The shopping mall has four thousand parking spaces available for it's customers. The shopping mall is owned by the group L.S.G.I. and is managed by the company S.C.C. Italia. The group L.S.G.I. has built more than four million square meters of real estate properties introducing a strong added value. The company S.C.C.I (Société des Centres Commerciaux Italia S.r.l) is part of the L.S.G.I group and is a leader in the management and promotion of shopping centers. The situation During the summer of 2007, SCCI launched the project tender and asked a number of security installers to design a complete security system for the center. The property owners had a key requirement - a digital platform with the very latest technology based on a sole brand that could provide an integrated security system including video, access and intrusion detection. The specialist security installer Vailati S.a.S. di Vailati Claudio&C won the project and continues to manage Euroma2's security and maintenance services. Vailati SaS has extensive expertise and experience in the design and installation of security systems for large shopping centers. Shopping centers are regarded as high risk security environments due to the size of the sites, the vast crowds, the numerous entrances and exits, and the fact that there are many retail outlets within them. An effective digital video management system is essential to ensure that the site, including all its different areas such as restaurants, retail outlets and visitors, is kept safe and secure. All the entrances and exists of the parking areas are also monitored. In this way, the security guards in charge of surveillance can monitor all the areas where cars are moving around without additional cost and making efficient use of the security resources. The solution More than 280 Honeywell interior and exterior cameras and domes have been installed in the shopping center, implementing innovative video solutions in terms of technology and resolution. Vailati SaS selected the following Honeywell cameras - PTZ ACUIX with Day/Night technology and Wide Dynamic Range, rugged domes to prevent exterior vandalism and vandal-proof mini-domes for interior applications with a discrete design to match the interior decoration and style of the shopping center. The cameras are linked by an unshielded twisted pair (UTP) to 16 channel Fusion digital video recorders (DVRs), 20 of which have been installed in different technical rooms. The technical rooms and the control room are connected via a 1Gbps ethernet network over optical fiber. In the control room there are two PC work stations which enable the technicians to monitor, reproduce or save any video source from the system by means of the Honeywell Fusion Video Management System (HFVMS) software. A Honeywell WIN-PAK™ SE/PE access control solution manages access to the entrances of the shopping center linked with two Galaxy® intruder alarm panels creating an integrated system to protect the buildings. Claudio Vailati, the Installation Manager at Vailati SaS approached Honeywell, as his first port of call due to the fact that Honeywell has a comprehensive DVR product range. The Honeywell Fusion DVR Series was chosen for recording purposes because it offers much more than a traditional analog DVR "Honeywell presented us with the Fusion multi-channel DVR showing all its capabilities and features," said Claudio Vailati, Installations Manager Vailati SaS. "The solution satisfied all our needs. We had previously used Honeywell products on several large projects and have always found the products to be easy to use and manage." Euroma2 has many meeting points as well as retail outlets and restaurants. There is a relatively high incidence of theft and attempted theft due to the crowds that flock to the shopping center especially at weekends. The shopping center security team relies heavily on the video systems to capture incidents and the video footage also helps trace and monitor anti-social behavior. It is also extremely important to monitor all the exterior and parking areas to identify suspicious or antisocial behavior. At the initial design stages of the CCTV security system Vailati and Honeywell had to consider whether to continue along the path of analog systems, which require the installation of a video matrix and the centralization of all the video signals to the control room, or to opt instead for a digital solution which would allow a decentralized installation of the equipment by means of a simple and scalable Ethernet TCP IP network. The digital solution was adopted enabling Euroma2 to connect new IP cameras to the system as required. In this way the security system is always up to date and aligned with the latest technology. The Honeywell Fusion DVR Series was chosen for recording purposes because it offers much more than a traditional analog DVR. It is a full featured hybrid digital recording system which bridges the gap between digital video recorders and network video recorders, achieving an extremely high rate of network distribution of the video and audio signals. The Honeywell digital DVR Fusion system includes a software platform that can share and process video signals for other Honeywell solutions such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and intelligent video analytics, Active Alert®, which can be used to track people, objects and vehicles. "We needed to start with an effective and up to date monitoring system right from the opening of the shopping center which would also ensure a technologically future-ready platform," added Claudio Vailati. "Honeywell has enabled us to do this." The benefits Since the Honeywell Fusion DVRs have been installed, Euroma2 has reported savings in time and resources. The security operators are now able to instantly review a recording of an incident and high resolution images can be produced enabling security staff to locate and apprehend a suspected thief or vandal. The RAID storage units allow the team to store more footage over a longer period of time. The information is more easily accessible than using VHS tapes. Ultimately this helps police and the legal process if charges are pressed. Overall, the operation has become more effective and efficient. "The level of service and technical support we received from Honeywell, especially from the Italian sales and technical support team, has been excellent," continued Caludio Vailati. "They are always available to assist and advise us when required." "We are very satisfied with the new Honeywell Fusion DVR," said Attilio de Micheli, Security Manager Euroma2. "We are much better equipped to handle video incidents. The management of the shopping center security systems is a lot easier and efficient. The new Fusion DVR system has enabled us to act more quickly to deal with incidents of theft, vandalism or anti-social behavior."

Insurance Giant Puts Safety First With Honeywell And Direct Security
Insurance Giant Puts Safety First With Honeywell And Direct Security

QBE Insurance Group is Australia's largest international general insurance & reinsurance group, and one of the top 25 insurers and reinsurers worldwide. Outside London, QBE has underwriting centers located in Birmingham, Bristol, Chelmsford, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Stafford. The situation Head of European Security, Mark Thompson, joined QBE in 2000, becoming responsible for security throughout QBE. "It was immediately obvious that there was no "joined up" approach to security across the UK offices," commented Mark Thompson, QBE. "It was disjointed and lacked any clear priorities - ultimately the business and its assets were at risk I therefore embarked on a project to overhaul the system." The requirement was to upgrade the existing security equipment and to install an integrated access, video and intruder solution. As a result of the findings of the security audit, a five year plan was produced by Thompson and his team to address the concerns. The key focus of the plan was that each QBE site would use the same video, access and intruder equipment with complete connectivity & integration. It was important from his point of view that his teams were able to monitor each building remotely and obtain the necessary management information. The business challenges that made the upgrade essential were: Multiple offices located around the UK. An obsolete access control system that delivered little management information. Little or no integration between the access, video and intruder detection systems. With a good working relationship already established, QBE and Mark Thompson were delighted to put this upgrade project in the hands of Direct Security and Honeywell. Direct Security is a Select member of the Honeywell Systems Integrator program, and has been prescribing and installing Honeywell products for many years. The solution QBE had considered removing the existing Honeywell WIN-PAK®SE access control system which would have incurred a considerable cost to the business. However, Direct Security produced a solution that would allow the WIN-PAK system to continue to deliver considerable cost savings. With a more integrated system across all sites and better reporting, the expectation was to reduce the need for any additional security guards and to generate efficiencies by providing the staff with comprehensive training on an intuitive, easy to use system. Mark Thompson wanted to see a 20% reduction in maintenance costs over a five year period with a 10% reduction in manpower. "We were looking to achieve cost reductions over a 5 year period," added Thompson. "This would effectively make the new security system cost neutral, a very sound investment, not just from a business security point of view, but also from a financial perspective. I needed an installer I could trust implicitly. The team at Direct Security provides that in abundance via their consultative approach, expert knowledge and technical capabilities."    The Fusion DVR can now be used for monitoring license number plates of visiting vehicles Direct Security introduced an upgraded Honeywell WIN-PAK® SE system which would allow the three main QBE offices at Chelmsford, 88 Leadenhall Street, London and Plantation Place, London to be connected and managed together. The Fusion DVR can now be used for monitoring license number plates of visiting vehicles "I know the Honeywell product range well having worked with them on many projects," stated Paul Anderson, Direct Security. "QBE was quite insistent on its requirement for a fully integrated security solution that was reliable, robust and easy to manage. The Honeywell products put forward for tender fit the specification as required." The server for the new Honeywell WIN-PAK system is located at Leadenhall Street in Central London which enables central control and monitoring of all three sites. An upgrade of firmware at Leadenhall Street allowed the existing controllers to integrate with the new Honeywell WIN-PAK system. New door readers were installed in Chelmsford. "The upgrade gives additional confidence in the system," stated Anderson. "The network connectivity enables QBE to monitor the systems from any site. We will soon be able to monitor the system remotely or run diagnostic tests or reports meaning that we can identify potential problems before they happen and administer the system remotely if required." The ongoing project will see the remaining UK sites (Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Stafford, Norwich & Manchester) connected via the Honeywell WIN-PAK® SE system. The readers will change to I-class technology. Currently QBE uses standard proximity cards. The readers and smart cards installed can be programmed for multiple sites which mean that staff traveling between the company's UK sites require only one card to allow them access to all of the sites. The smart card is capable of storing and processing information and so it has multiple uses from cashless vending, personal information storage and control of access to restricted areas - keeping a record of accumulated points for discount purchases and verifying authenticity. Whilst the new cards will predominantly be used for access control, QBE has scope for wider use in the future. At the London Office located at 88 Leadenhall Street, the Honeywell WIN-PAK Access Server was upgraded, managing approximately 23 access controlled doors using OmniProxTM proximity cards. A further project to replace the existing and somewhat dated digital video recorders is planned to take place early in 2009. At the QBE office in Coval Wells, Chelmsford, the Honeywell WIN-PAK upgrade was completed, managing approximately 40 doors. Direct Security has since installed the Honeywell Fusion Digital Video Recorder (DVR) enabling security staff to monitor and record remote images using the Fusion Video Management Software (FVMS). The Galaxy intruder alarm was connected to the main network and configured to operate directly with WIN-PAK. A recent upgrade has seen an improvement to the security stations which monitor all of the sites. A second monitor has been installed at each location which shows the floor plans of all the sites. Also installed at the QBE Chelmsford office was the Fusion Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) software integrated with the Fusion DVR. This was necessary to prevent the many instances of car park issues. The Fusion combined with the ANPR software was the preferred option as it enabled the security team to search historical events when required, take clear images of non-authorized cars using the staff car park and ensure that they are prevented from entry in the future. At the QBE office in Coval Wells, the Honeywell WIN-PAK upgrade manages approximately 40 doors  The Fusion DVR can now be used for monitoring license number plates of visiting vehicles and logging these number plates in a central database. Fusion ANPR consists of two parts. Fusion ANPR intelligently monitors traffic via ANPR cameras and logs all passing vehicles. The built-in proprietary database finds registration numbers as the vehicles approach and displays the available information - e.g. driver name, image of driver, vehicle make / model. The Fusion ANPR software then displays specific action messages for the user. An existing database of users or employees may be generated in software programs such as Microsoft® Excel or Access and imported into the Fusion ANPR program. The benefits The security operation now benefits from a combined systems approach with remote connectivity and integration across all of the UK offices. The access control, video, intrusion alarms and ANPR systems can all be controlled from the security hub in London which allows the team to centrally monitor all CCTV and alarm events whilst being able to run consistent and holistic access control reports from the WIN-PAK application. Importantly, the system is highly scalable, allowing for seamless expansion and development in the future, in line with business requirements. "When I joined QBE part of my remit was to have a single integrated security solution across our various sites," explained Thompson. "The challenge for me was to do this cost effectively and to demonstrate a return on investment, but to also get the best security solution available for our budget. Honeywell and Direct Security made this possible and now we are reaping the rewards as a business. I trust Direct Security to recommend the right products for the job and for QBE. I have every confidence they will continue to do that. We see the Fusion DVR, WIN-PAK® SE system and Galaxy as setting the standard for the continued development of security & business continuity across QBE in the UK."
