London hotel installs new video surveillance system16 Aug, 2012
London's Grange Tower Bridge Hotel has installed a 187 camera video surveillance system to enable security personnel to monitor activity in all its public areas.
The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel has 370 rooms and suites spread over 14 floors. Some of its modern amenities include renewable solar and photovoltaic panels, and it has an on-site borehole to reduce water consumption. It is, according to SourceSecurity.com, one of the most energy-efficient hotels to open in recent years.
151 of the cameras are Samsung SCD-2080E dome cameras, which are able to capture high resolution color images at 600 TV lines in daylight conditions during the day, and 700 TV lines monochrome images in low light environments. Additional features include eight motion detection zones, twelve privacy masking zones and Highlight Compensation technology which identifies and neutralises excessively bright areas in an image to reveal the detail behind it. Third generation Samsung Super Noise Reduction (SSNRIII) technology eliminates image noise in low-light conditions without creating ghosting or blurring and with the additional benefit of up to 70 percent reduction in bandwidth requirements or video storage space, compared to standard cameras. The images from all the cameras are transmitted back to the hotel’s control room where they are monitored 24/7 by security personnel.
