Securing Jablotron

October 2013 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Jablotron Alarms is one of the largest security firms in the Czech Republic and has built a new headquarters in Prague, the country’s capital. A number of Hikvision products were chosen to protect both Jablotron’s reputation and its new building.

“Jablotron’s overall goal was to design a high-quality CCTV system, but one that was easy to operate. We put a great deal of emphasis on the ability to obtain clear, quality, pictures in both day and night environments; as well the ability to view them live or by recording,” explained Martin Svoboda, operational director at Jablotron.

The core of the CCTV system was a quartet of Hikvision cameras: the DS-2DF1-514 5-inch Network High Speed Dome, DS-2CD8253F-EI IR Bullet Network Camera, DS-2CD764F-E 1.3 MP Network Dome Camera, and the DS-2DF1-402 4-inch Network High Speed Dome.

Internally, main entrances, as well as emergency exits were deemed areas that needed coverage. Additionally, hallways, various office spaces and security management rooms were designated as requiring additional security. Primarily tasked with this effort was Hikvision’s DS-2CD764F-E 1.3 MP Network Dome Camera.

Features, such as up to 1.3 megapixel (1280 x 960) resolution and HD720P real-time video, allow the DS-2CD764F-E to successfully achieve this goal.

Located in the server room is the DS-2DF1-402 Network High Speed Dome. This camera was specifically chosen because of its 360° endless pan range. It was also put on a 24-hour scan feature to better visually patrol the area. This Hikvision model allows IP – both inside headquarters, as well as those outside (by remote viewing) – to keep constant vigil over this important room.

On the exterior, Hikvision’s DS-2DF1-514 Network High Speed Dome mans the roof. Obviously, an IP66 rating is critical to this camera being able to do its job in hot European summers and brutally cold winters. Also, due to the area this camera resides – the roof – it is vital to zoom on any potential threats. A 23x zoom provides this, while a 360° endless pan range and -5° to -185° tilt range gives the ability to quickly follow any item of interest. “We really liked this camera, and purchased an extra unit just in case of any emergency situation,” added Svoboda.

Placed liberally along the external façade of these headquarters is the DS-2CD8253F-EI IR Bullet Network Camera. Again, sporting an IP66 rating, the DS-2CD8253F-EI also provides true day/night ability and an IR range of up-to 30 m to give excellent coverage all lighting conditions. Svoboda remarked, “For this particular application, night vision was critical, and we are very comfortable with the DS-2CD8253F-EI’s ability.”
