Brown Palace Hotel selects NUUO

September 2008 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

How does a premier luxury hotel with 241 rooms and six restaurants salute its guests while offering the finest in modern luxury accommodations and personalised service?

With a high degree of internal security, the Brown Palace Hotel situated in Denver, Colorado, makes its guests feel like being at home. From the spa, dinning, lobby and seating areas the Brown Palace imbues a sense of security while allowing guests the freedom to relax and enjoy the luxurious surroundings.

The Brown Palace Hotel has hosted nearly all US presidents since its inception in the late 1800s - including heads of state, kings and queens from over 50 countries, numerous dignitaries and celebrities. It is considered one of the grandest hotels in the US.

Forty channels of analogue cameras are installed around the lobby, restaurants, check-in areas, and ballrooms. All cameras are managed by a Visao DVR with NUUO H.264 DVR cards and software, featuring NUUO's I-guard video analysis, intuitive and broad applications that are very useful for hotel surveillance environments. In the main lobby and entrance, foreign and missing object detection react at once with on screen and audio alarms, especially during night hours. Once an I-guard event is detected it is recorded on all selected cameras in the software and played easily through the graphical user interface (GUI). Finally, another useful function that deserves mention is motion detection. Select a specific area to detect motion and the software will react to that motion in any one of eight user defined ways.

"Before there were only 16 cameras with low quality video in CIF resolution, unreliable operation really straightened our surveillance job, in a grand hotel our mission is to assist to avert any possible fraud or offence before it really occurs, and gladly we did it," said Gene Frailey, the chief technical officer of Visao. Hotel management is very happy about the added level of security. Security personnel have expressed great confidence in the new system, and believe it has strengthened their ability to respond to an incident quickly and more efficiently.

The Brown Palace anticipates adding four external IP PTZ cameras located at the four main entrances, for additional security during the Democratic National Convention (DNC). DNC VIP guests will stay at the Brown Palace Hotel for the duration of the Convention. The hotel plans to expand the use of Visao DVRs using NUUO cards and software in the future, adding at least one more DVR this year!
