March 29, 2016 – Hikvision, the world’ leading supplier in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products, has partnered with the Sunset Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles to provide a security solution for round-the-clock surveillance. Located on the bustling Sunset Strip, the hotel had a great need for versatile, user-friendly Wireless Security Cameras and recorders that allowed their staff to keep an eye on the premises at all times. A variety of Hikvision models now protect the hotel guests and serve as powerful tools to keep hotel operations running smoothly.
The hotel had outgrown their legacy ip cctv system and was hoping to upgrade to cameras that provided broad coverage and high-quality images in a variety of interior and exterior environments. It was also important that the interface for the security system was easy for employees to learn.
“We wanted something that we could use from an operational standpoint and from a safety standpoint,” explained Brenda Elias, operations manager for the Sunset Plaza.
Ms. Elias turned to Constantin Paul Bunea, the founder and CEO of Darkcad Tec, who had been serving as systems integrator for the hotel for ten years. After considering the options available on the market, he felt confident that Hikvision was the brand that would meet their needs.
“I selected Hikvision IP Camera because the quality is very high, third party integration is easy, and the company provides excellent technical support.” Mr. Bunea stated.
Darkcad Tec installed over twenty Hikvision IP cameras throughout the hotel, each well suited for a specific function. The DS-2CD2332-I turret, with Hikvision’s patented EXIR infrared technology, is being used in the parking garage, boasting image quality clear enough to make out license plates. A 3 MP fisheye Wireless IP CCTV Camera, the DS-2CD6332FWD-I, allows for a 360° view of the main entrance. Cameras such as the DS-2CD2132F-I dome are being used at other hotel entrances, where HD real-time video is essential. This surveillance system is but one example of Hikvision products providing benefit to hotels all across North America.
“The versatility and scalability of Hikvision products make them well-suited for a wide range of vertical markets,” stated Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA and Hikvision Canada. “We are pleased to serve our customers in the hospitality industry as they seek to provide safe and enjoyable experiences for their guests.”
