Army and Navy Academy Secures Campus by Upgrading to Hanwha Cameras and Wisenet WAVE VMS

Anderson Hall

Hanwha Techwin America announced that Army and Navy Academy, a college preparatory military boarding school in California has upgraded its security infrastructure with Hanwha security cameras.

Located on a 23-acre beach-front property, the school is home to more than 300 students and employs more than 140 faculty and staff members. With a commitment to continuously adapt and improve, the Academy developed a strategic plan that focused on supporting the long-term success of their cadets.

When the school began building and renovating facilities, they included an upgrade to their technology and physical security system.

With a two-fold approach, the school first needed to replace its existing, out-of-date analog camera system. Second, they needed a system that could keep up with current technology.

According to Jeffrey Gibson, Assistant Commandant, Operations, Safety, and Security at the Academy, a system with analytics to keep a close watch on the campus could act as a force multiplier.

After an extensive vetting process, the school deployed a video surveillance solution comprised of Hanwha cameras integrated with Wisenet WAVE, a highly customizable and reliable IP-based video management system (VMS).

Integrating the Hanwha cameras using the WAVE VMS made it possible to create a video surveillance solution tailored to the campus’ specific needs. The Academy was able to quickly train security personnel as required because the WAVE VMS is extremely intuitive and easy to use.

The Academy now has a total of 141 cameras, including PNM-9081VQ multi-sensor, multi-directional cameras for covering wide areas, which allows them to use fewer cameras while seeing more.

They have also installed PNM-9320VQP multi-sensor multi-directional PTZ cameras for zooming in or for covering long distances. And, to be able to effectively monitor between buildings and cover their coastline, the Academy chose PNM-9020V multi-sensor 180° cameras.

By taking advantage of the in-camera and VMS analytics available in their new system, the teams can now monitor internal and external areas. Primary cameras focus on higher priority, greater risk areas, while the analytics keeps track of the rest.

As a result of the upgrade, most of the campus perimeter is now protected using line crossing analytics. With Hanwha cameras installed above the fence, the system sends an alert to the security operations center if it detects something crossing the fence in either direction.

Once the system pulls up the camera feeds, operators can see if it’s a false alarm and then decide whether or not to dispatch a security team or call local police.

The security team has developed a strategy for inside the fence as well that allows them to focus on specific areas that have higher traffic at specific times of the day.

The in-camera analytics looks at the low-traffic areas. If the camera detects movement, the security operations center is alerted and can then determine whether or not to send personnel.

Because the new security system provides both coverage and analytics, the Academy’s security team is able to focus on what matters most — the safety of students, faculty, and staff.

      Security cameras are being installed everywhere in Miami to monitor the activities of the miscreants and the criminals, who roam around in the city. If you want to keep a track on your valuables and property inside the premises of your condo, home, or any such building, installing security cameras is the only way to get a visual record of all the activities that are going on in your area. The presence of cameras in your area will act as a deterrent to crimes from repeated happening, since it will give the criminal or miscreant an idea about what he is doing wrong or is going to face trouble in the near future. Besides being a good tool to detect and stop crimes, it is also very cost effective in terms of maintenance and other related expenses
      Installing the security cameras in your building can be done at very reasonable rates and it is always better to install it while you are still in the process of erecting your building. However, you need to bear in mind that before you take up the task of installing Miami surveillance camera systems in your building, you should have a clear understanding about the kind of camera system which suits your requirements. Since there are many options available in the market for different types of cameras, it would be advisable to have a clear picture about what type of camera you require.
