Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia
Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia

Zurcorp has installed Axis cameras and Pelco Digital Sentry NVRs; as well as a Concept 4000 access control system and a PA system; for the Ivanhoe Hotel on the Corso at Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches.

MANLY’S Ivanhoe Hotel was the case study SEN covered in its first issue way back in October 1998. That makes it an interesting bellwether for the changes the market has undergone over the past 16 years. In 1998, the original system was a cutting edge all-analogue electronic security solution. It comprised a computerised Pacom 2030 matrix switcher and Pelco fixed and PTZ cameras, with timelapse recording handling storage.

Tanksec Solutions has installed a Freedom VMS HD IP surveillance system at BP Slacks Creek Service Centre in Brisbane. This system is integrated with a remote BP service station at Jimboomba, with another site at Grafton in NSW on order and 2 more BP service centres may be integrated in the future. 

SERVICE centres like BP Slacks Creek are demanding applications. They have a high risk of drive-off fuel theft and as 24-hour retailers with modest staff levels after hours, shrinkage and staff safety are always a concern. Another key aspect of these sites is that there are significant internal and external surveillance requirements.

There had been many changes to the locking installations over the years, meaning the college had ongoing problems with students losing keys giving them the expense of having to replace locks and keys on a regular basis.

Sydney’s iconic night spot, The Bourbon, has been fitted with a Milestone VMS and Sony cameras supplied by Video Security Products and installed by integrator, PRV. It's part of a major re-fit that has elevated The Bourbon from its seedy roots and brought some much needed mid-upper class to Kings Cross.

Opened back in 1967, the old Bourbon was a flypaper that caught Sydney’s nocturnal insects, its interior a shemozzle of everything that passed for authentic in a town then chronically unsure of its own identity. American owner Bernie Houghton filled the place with flotsam from the American South and the Vietnam War. The city provided the rest. A strange amalgam of toughs, drunks, cops drowning in moral relativism and punters bored senseless by a 1970s and 80s entertainment menu that featured suburban leagues clubs as the best of bad options.
