King St Waterloo Student Residance - 2013

Situation:
Blueprints of a non-constructed 10 story student residence, we were approached to design and install a closed circuit security camera system covering. The system covers all of the public areas including main entrances, hallways, common areas, main lobby, surrounding outdoor areas and parking garages.

Challenges:
  • Maximize coverage of the areas with the minimum number of cameras and mounting hardware.
  • Create a flexible and easily maintainable system with future upgrade options.
  • Monitor all areas 24/7 with a minimum recorded history of 1 week.


Solution:
  • 51 cameras were installed in the building.
  • Installation of Cat5e cabling that would allow for power and video to use 1 cable rather than 2. This would also allow for future upgrades to the system.
  • All cameras that were install are vandal proof to protect again physical damage.
  • 3 cameras were strategically located on each floor (2nd to 10th) to provide a full view of the hallways and doors leading to both stairways as well as to the main elevator.
  • Installed 12 cameras on the first floor to cover the main entrances and common areas.
  • Installed 12 cameras on the exterior of the building, maintenance rooms and in the underground parking garage.
  • Plastic conduit was installed in parking garage area to protect cables against vandalism.
  • Install a large central battery backup for continual recording even during a power outage.
  • Installed 2 - 6TB DVR recorders (supports up to 32 analog cameras each) in the main security office and connected it to dual flat-screen monitors.

Result:
We provided an easily monitored 24/7 system with enough storage space to monitor all areas. The system maintains a record of activity for a minimum of one week (even during power disruptions) with the ability to add additional cameras with no disruption to the existing system.
