Catholic church in Brazil opens hotel with pilgrims safety in mind

Catholic church in Brazil opens hotel with pilgrims safety in mind
The Rainha do Brasil Hotel built by the Catholic church in Aparecida do Norte, Brazil recently installed an IP-based surveillance system consisting of 106 Axis Communications cameras and Digifort VMS, sourced from distributor Delta Cable. Local system integrator Sillis handled the implementation and the integration of access control with alarm management. Installation for the 15-floor hotel was completed in three days, since the cameras were preconfigured on the Digifort platform and were basically plug-and-play upon installment, said Marcel Minotelli, Technical Director for Sillis. To assist engineers, Sillis also configured each camera IP in advance with matching numbers on each box that correlated to its position in the hotel.

The hotel security team required a centralized monitoring system and the ability to access cameras from various points on the local network. Other requirements included automatic alerts of any unauthorized camera repositioning or blocking, as well as archived video footage for investigations.

One discreet, outdoor-ready fixed dome with WDR was installed in each of the five elevators; 10 more of the same model can be found on the ground floor where the reception is located. The ground floor is protected by eight additional cameras, with various WDR, D/N, vandal-proof and facial-recognition features. The discreet dome model can also be found in the mezzanine and each floor of the hotel, along with a fixed model. A total of 15 cameras were installed in the mezzanine, while four cameras were installed on each floor of the hotel.

Six vandal-resistant domes and two ultra-discreet outdoor fixed domes were installed in the penthouse area, where the hotel swimming pool is located. Alfonso Aurin, Technology Consultant for the church, noted that the system has helped in an incident where an unattended child fell into the adult swimming pool, and the video recordings clarified what further measures should be taken to prevent further incidents.
