Security for luxury hotel

October 2015 Surveillance, Entertainment and Hospitality (Industry)

The Villa d’Este has been nestled in Cernobbio for almost 150 years. It was built in 1568 as a private residence and was transformed into a hotel in 1873. The villa itself is a great example of renaissance architecture and its luxurious rooms are located along the shore of Lake Como. For years, many international awards have been bestowed upon Villa d’Este as the most wonderful hotel in the world.

Through the centuries, countless celebrities have stayed in this beautiful hotel, including kings and queens, presidents, Hollywood stars, writers, musicians, singers, designers, politicians, etc. Each year the hotel hosts internationally cultural events like the Workshop Ambrosetti, a benchmark for the highest levels of politics, finance and industry, and the Concorsod Eleganza Villa d’Este, an annual world-wide event for classic cars with custom bodywork.

Dahua, in conjunction with Videotrend, was asked to secure this spectacular venue. The challenge was to set up a highly professional video surveillance system with the specialist installer Emit di Lecco for its property protection, while ensuring the most absolute privacy for the celebrity guests. The security system exerts strict monitoring for the entrances, parking lots and other outdoor areas to eliminate possible unsafe factors. In total, the hotel has installed 75 units of different camera types from the Dahua Eco Savvy 2.0 series.

Dahua’s latest 2.0 series features a 4-megapixel progressive-scan CMOS, which delivers high quality images at 20fps.The end result is an image twice as clear as a traditional 1080p camera. The series features an impressive range of smart detection features, including face detection, tripwire detection, and intrusion detection. These features mean that users are equipped with more precise video analysis and, as a result, greater security efficiency. Eco-savvy 2.0 also boasts WDR image enhancement technology, triple video streams, and Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS). The wide dynamic range (120 dB) ensures the cameras offer high performance in scenes that are backlit as well as those situated in dark areas, which has traditionally been challenging for surveillance cameras.

In addition, Dahua also upgraded the NVR6000s, which support a maximum of 128 channel IP cameras input with 1080p real-time live view, providing smooth video streams.

Moreover, the hotel has simultaneously installed a Dahua VDP system for the interior of the villa. The Dahua video door phone is specially designed for the modern intelligent villa and features outdoor visual intercom, face recognition access control, card unlock, indoor monitor unlock, and camera surveillance. The outdoor station is made with an aluminium alloy panel with an ultra-thin machine. The indoor monitor is very sleek looking and is easy to install and remove. A complete parking guidance system solution, including monitoring, recording, analysis and licence plate reading was also installed. All the information is recorded and classified for rapid access of information when searching for a particular event.

“We delivered the most advanced comprehensive product series to secure Ville d’Este. Compared to other suppliers, Dahua’s products offer the great advantage of high definition viewing, which enables users to see the details of the scenes and ensures safety as well,” said Elmer Zhang, sales director of Europe at Dahua Technology. “The proper use of our products in Ville d’Este has proven to be a great success, which we hope will encourage the installation of our products to serve more customers in the hospitality field.”
