GE Security protects Transcorp Hilton

April 2010 Entertainment and Hospitality (Industry)

Transcorp Hilton in Nigeria has selected GE Security for fire protection and video surveillance.

Transcorp Hilton has been operating in Nigeria for over 20 years. About 5000 people visit daily to utilise accommodation, shopping, entertainment, restaurants, business, venues, bars, offices, etc. From guest rooms and suites to executive rooms with executive lounge access, all rooms at the Transcorp Hilton are designed in Art Deco style.

The hotel is located at the heart of Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja, five minutes away from government ministries and 40 minutes from the international airport.

Consisting of restaurants, bars, a club, a clinic, dozens of shops and multiple offices, the Transcorp Hilton is a community on its own. As this famous hotel frequently hosts celebrities from all over the world, the security and privacy of these international guests is of the utmost importance.

The technical team recognised the desire for a security solution that was intelligent, durable, robust, scalable and highly efficient to protect lives and property from security incidents and the threat of fire. The Transcorp Hilton made an international tender for a security solution and in a highly competitive pitch process, Transcorp Hilton selected GE Security and its local installer, HF Fire international to provide its new fire detection and video surveillance solution.

GE Security’s solution

The Transcorp Hilton’s 14 floors are now equipped with over 1200 4D multisensor intelligent detectors, an emergency fire fighter telephony system and a complete voice evacuation system. These devices are all connected to EST3 control panels, which in turn interface with lifts, emergency door exits, the digital phone messaging system, HVAC units, sprinkler systems and computer room air conditioning units.

Additionally, the EST solution is able to fully monitor the hotel’s fire extinguishing system, creating an integrated response to any fire threat. In parallel to this, the EST Synergy system provides intrusion detection for the Transcorp Hilton’s accounting and financial departments.

Following the success of the initial security installations, the management of Transcorp Hilton decided to expand its security solution by equipping the hotel with GE Security’s video surveillance system. Using this solution, the hotel can now be monitored 24/7 using GE Security’s dome cameras and digital recorders.

The Transcorp Hilton is pleased with its current security solution and comfortably recommends GE Security’s solution to other companies.
