Coeur d'Alene Casino in Idaho upgrades to digital using Pelco
Located 45 minutes outside Spokane, Washington, the Coeur d'Alene Casino started as a tribal bingo hall in the early 1990s and has since grown into a casino, hotel, golf course, and convenience store.

Located 45 minutes outside Spokane, Washington, the Coeur d'Alene Casino started as a tribal bingo hall in the early 1990s and has since grown into a casino, hotel, golf course, and convenience store.

With millions of dollars in assets, as well as liability and compliance issues to deal with, the casino's old security recording system of VCRs and tapes wasn't cutting it. “Their system was on video tape and wasn't really benefiting the casino anymore,” said Kevin Jetton, President of A-Tec, system integrator for Coeur d'Alene Casino. “They knew that they had to do some major changes and they decided to go digital.”

The system includes 9,760 matrix switches, the 300 video management system, 5,000 keyboards, LCD monitors, 600 camera licenses, and a mixture of different camera lines and lenses from the previous system, all of which will eventually be transitioned to Pelco solutions.

Cameras are located in the more than 100,000 square feet of gaming space, parking lots, exterior, and convenience store. They also help secure the Circling Raven Golf Club, renowned as one of the finest new golf challenges in the region, the nation and the world.

Apprehensive about switching from their previous security system because other casinos in the area had trouble combining systems, Coeur d'Alene wanted to make sure everything worked well before flipping the switch. Testing was done in the early stages of the installation to ensure that the transition would go smoothly.
