Based in Tirana, Albania, Our Lady of Good Counsel is a Catholic university-hospital complex that comprises five buildings. It operates as a Foundation of Our Lady of Good Counsel in Albania, which was founded in 1993 by the Children Congregate of the Immaculate Lady (CFIC). The ultimate vision of the Foundation is two-fold: To heal the sick through research and treatment and to provide young people with an education for life.
The provision of health care goes beyond effective medicine. Ensuring the physical safety of patients and security of premises are also of paramount importance. Prior to the implementation Hikvision’s surveillance solutions, the complex used analogue cameras to address its need for security. However, these analogue cameras were not able to capture sufficient details of activities in the video footage. Specifically, face recognition was impossible and even licence plates were hard to decipher. Furthermore, security personnel did not have access to the monitoring system. “We considered increasing the number of cameras, but the problem clearly was not the coverage, but rather the quality of surveillance,” said Nikolin Gjonaj, head of security at Our Lady of Good Counsel.
The solution came as a combination of Hikvision’s surveillance technologies. Five different products were installed in various quantities through the complex. These include: the DS-2CD2032-I 3MP IR bullet network camera, the DS-2CD2132-I and DS-2CD7153-E network cameras, the DS-7732NI-ST and DS-7608NI-ST network video recorders (NVR).
The DS-2CD2032-I 3MP IR bullet network cameras were installed in the complex to ensure proper capture of activities on the premises. These cameras are compact and feature a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1526, as well as 1080p real-time video capture.
The DS-2CD2132-I and DS-2CD7153-E network cameras boast vandal-proof housing, which gives added physical protection. Like the DS-2CD2032-I 3MP IR bullet network cameras, these network cameras support the common network protocols, ensuring maximum integration in a complex-wide, and in this case, all five buildings, surveillance system.
The DS-2CD2132-I Dome Camera provides a 3-megapixel resolution (2048 x 1536). It offers real-time video recording in high definition (1080P), with a H.264/ MJPEG video compression. Compared to the preceding camera, the DS-2CD7153-E network mini done camera is smaller in size. It provides a maximum resolution of up to 2 megapixels, with 15 frames per second at a resolution of 1600 x 1200. It also offers real-time video recording in high definition (720P), with a H.264/MPEG4/MJPEG video compression and a day/night auto switch to switch between day and night modes.
