US Housing Authority Increases Operator Productivity And Reduces Investigation With Honeywell IP-based Video Management
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 center. The wireless solution proved to be especially economical, since it did not require putting fiber 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 analog 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 center 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 center 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 unauthorized 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 BAM Techniek Provide Ziekenhuis Amstelland Hospital With A Safe And Secure Environment
Honeywell And BAM Techniek Provide Ziekenhuis Amstelland Hospital With A Safe And Secure Environment

Ziekenhuis Amstelland is a general hospital in the Netherlands that provides high quality medical care in a friendly environment and on a small scale, primarily to the residents of the Amstelveen region and to the Jewish community in particular. Following a large-scale new construction project that took place in 2009-2010, and with a major renovation of the old building during 2011, Amstelveen Hospital has transformed itself into a brand new hospital. In conjunction with this comprehensive project, security aspects were re-examined in great detail.  Even though the security already in place was good, the renovation and the newly built buildings created the need to reassess the entire security system. Additional areas had been added for short-term treatments, day patients and policlinic treatments. The number of operation rooms was expanded and more beds were added for intensive care and heart monitoring, as well as a specially designed acute emergency help area. This resulted not only in a significantly enlarged area that needed to be made secure, but also required security solutions to manage the expansion in the capacity to treat patients and the magnitude of the daily flow of people throughout the hospital. This resulted in the need for an optimized security system to safeguard personnel, patients, medicine supplies and the medical equipment becoming of vital importance. In designing the new security system, Amstelland Hospital called upon the expertise of BAM Techniek (Region Northwest in Benningbroek) - a Dutch installation firm that through years of good experience has become the preferred security installer for the Amstelland Hospital. "Why we chose BAM Techniek is actually very simple - they give good advice, taking into account future requirements" said Peter Karsman, Head of Facility Operations, Amstelland Hospital.  "As an example, they equipped the entire hospital with an IP infrastructure in 2003, which simplified the implementation of the new IP security solution." In this large-scale renovation, the primary need was the expansion of the camera system, as well as switching to an integrated IP security solution for inside the buildings and surrounding premises. The requirement was to register incoming traffic and to provide the most cost-effective way of monitoring medical areas, medical storage areas and expensive medical equipment. The importance of having a security surveillance system in place was already acknowledged in 2009 when an X-ray monitor valued at €30,000 went missing. The Solution For the selection of the right supplier, a tender was issued. "There are a lot of changes in the market, technology moves fast and we wanted to let our customer experience the differences in image quality" said Arjan Kleuver, Project Manager at BAM Techniek. "To do this, IP cameras from different suppliers were tested on location for a few weeks. The primary criteria in the selection of the right supplier were the transition from day to night, but the price-quality ratio also played an important role." For the test, Honeywell supplied the latest models of the Honeywell EQUIP® IP product range, namely the HD3MDIPX and the HD4MDIPX. These high definition True Day/Night mini-dome network cameras for indoor and outdoor usage are designed to deliver extremely sharp images with minimal bandwidth. "Not long after the trials had started it became clear that the Honeywell cameras were superior in the transition from day to night, delivered crisp high quality images, and exceeded their competition in price-performance ratio" added Karsman. In addition to the 90 Honeywell cameras, six Honeywell Fusion IV Network Video Recorders (NVRs)were installed with FVMS software. The powerful Fusion IV has the capacity to support up to 32 IP cameras and when combined, multiple Fusion IV NVRs can support hundreds of cameras, meeting the requirements of large-scale integrated IP systems like the one installed in Amstelland Hospital. "Honeywell cameras were superior in the transition from day to night, delivered crisp high quality images, and exceeded their competition in price-performance ratio" To complete the security system, the decision was taken to install Automatic Number Plate Recognition software (ANPR), which enables monitoring and number plate registration of all cars entering and leaving the building. By automatically logging the entrance time along with the car number plate, potential security risks can be managed with early warning alerts. The Benefits By installing the Honeywell high definition True Day/Night cameras for indoor and outdoor usage, ANPR software and Fusion IV NVRs with FVMS, Amstelland Hospital now has a robust integrated IP surveillance solution in place. This complete IP system is rarely seen in Dutch hospitals where analog is often still deployed, despite the obvious advantages that IP offers such as cost savings, ease of installation and maintenance. For Amstelland Hospital the new IP system brought a significant improvement in efficiency gains. Thanks to the pre-installed motion detection settings, the cameras are only activated to record when motion occurs.  With the video management software, a site map can be preloaded, pinpointing the exact location where the incident is occurring. The Honeywell solution improves safety and enhances the quality of the information provided to security and reception personnel. In addition, the video management software makes it possible to preset a variety of user rights. This functionality is of crucial importance with regard to the Law for the Protection of Personal Data, and makes it possible to define who has viewer or data recapture rights for the recordings which ultimately are required to protect against illegal use of the images and guarantee the privacy of employees and patients. Choosing the Honeywell high definition cameras that require minimal bandwidth also enables substantial financial savings. The clear image quality and the problem-free transition from day to night registration ensure the continuity of reliable data collection and a good situational overview at all times. In the weeks following the installation of the Honeywell IP security solution, the system proved itself by capturing and preventing numerous break-in attempts and in solving a theft.
