Case Study: Security Control Room Upgrade

The upgraded  control room
The upgraded control room

Security control rooms are always squeezed in whatever space can be found close to core infrastructure to avoid the expense of additional cabling or a reduction in revenue-generating commercial space. And the older the building the more a control room is likely to need refurbishment. 

I’M sitting in the lobby of one of Australia’s iconic commercial high rise CBD buildings. From the comfort of the leather lounge chair the building’s slick modern appearance and feel of the sandstone, marble and steel that surrounds me exude luxury and opulence. The grand lobby gives no indication that this well-known and high-profile office tower is more than 25 years old.

Visium operators spotted the fire at Remondis using thermal cameras
Visium operators spotted the fire at Remondis using thermal cameras

Remondis Northgate had been using thermal camera technology to help monitor waste materials to mitigate risk of fire for 18 months when a recent outbreak of fire proved its Visium-installed solution offered excellent early warning, allowing the rapid implementation of procedures and swift emergency response. 

REMONDIS Northgate is a waste transfer station that receives domestic and commercial general solid waste, removes recyclables before shipping the residual waste in bulk to landfill. A key part of the Remondis operation is the acceptance and bulking up of waste from waste collection trucks that occasionally include hot loads - waste materials that include an unwanted heat source like hot coals, or chemicals that may combust.

Star Casino: Birthplace of Digital Video Surveillance

Consultant Vlado Damjanovski with the Dallmeier Pit-Cam system at Star Casino

It’s been 2 decades since the first IP surveillance systems were installed in Australia, first at Crown Casino in Melbourne and a year later at Star Casino in Sydney. These were basic solutions compared to the current generations of digital CCTV technology but even the first generations highlighted the power and capability of digital video and represent the birthplace of digital video surveillance in Australia.

EXACTLY 20 years ago, in 1997 I was consultant on my first large-scale digital CCTV project for Star Casino in Sydney, a site which at that time was called Sydney Harbour Casino. One of the earliest digital CCTV systems in the world of this size, it comprised 50 DVRs and more than 200 cameras. The only similar solution of this type I’m aware of was completed just one year earlier at Crown Casino in Melbourne. So, in a way, this is an anniversary for the whole industry.

Battleship Museum, USS Iowa
Battleship Museum, USS Iowa

Affectionately known as the ‘Battleship of Presidents’ after having played host to more U.S. presidents than any other battleship, the USS Iowa is one of the most storied vessels in the history of the U.S. Navy. Now a museum, the ship is protected by a security solution incorporating Vivotek cameras and an Arteco NEXT VMS.

COMMISSIONED in 1943, the Iowa saw significant action during both World War II and the Korean War. One of the battleship’s first missions was to escort President Franklin Delano Roosevelt across the Atlantic in November of that year for a critical meeting between the allies at the Tehran Conference, which was also attended by Soviet leader Josef Stalin and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Andersons AVI has installed a Mobotix video surveillance solution at Autobarn in Frankston, incorporating hemispheric cameras and MxManagementCenter software. According to the end users, the system has reduced shrinkage at the store by 75 per cent. 

THEFT is a huge problem for retailers and accounts for up to 40 per cent of losses per year in Australia. The Autobarn automotive parts and accessories franchise located in Frankston, Melbourne, is no exception, with thefts occurring on average every 2 days. With multiple small stock items for sale throughout the store and staff often busy serving customers, it was near impossible to prevent crime through manpower alone.
