CECOE operates the site’s surveillance 24 hours per day

When we talk about condominium surveillance, we think about buildings with several floors or for a group of houses in a given horizontal allotment.  In Santos/SP, Digifort is helping in the operation of a site with very particular characteristics in this subject.  It is the “Condomínio Vila Residencial Jardins de Santa Thereza”, better known as “Morro Santa Therezinha” (Santa Therezinha Hill).  There are about 100 houses spread over 7.5 kilometers of roads, 340 thousand square meters of green areas and a ridge that can reach 220 meters of altitude, all of this facing the Santos Bay.

.

The site has the so called “organic” administration, where patrimonial security, maintenance and technology are handled by its own staff.  This philosophy contemplates the condominium’s electronic surveillance structure and IP (Internet Protocol) surveillance. Among analog, digital, night (infra-red), fixed and mobile (speed dome), the complex houses 75 cameras, strategically positioned on poles, masts and housings.  They are connected by means of an optical ring, composed of media converters and two thousand meters of fiber optics, installed in aerial and underground stretches on the hill’s territory.

.

“We have adopted fiber optics because of the local geography and the technical elasticity it offers. Besides a 100% IP surveillance system, exploring the infinite possibilities of Digifort, it will give us support to multiple high performance services of TV, telephony and Internet.  In regards to the software, we have licenses for the Enterprise version 6.6, some modules of intelligent video analysis and keyboard controller. We have already projected the acquisition of the Digifort LPR, biometric reader and alarm and automation module.  We will also migrate from analog cameras to high-definition digital ones”, says Cristiano Molinari, director of FyberNet Serviços, technological integrator who provides consulting services to the condominium.

Digifort Keyboard Controller is part of the integrated solution

As explains Mauro de Lima, Santa Thereza’s patrimonial security supervisor, Digifort surprised his team.  “With so many cameras working, we were aware of the need of a quality product.  We researched the software on the market and analyzed several success cases with governments, companies and security agencies.  With the software running, it was already possible to spot infractions, record occurrences and instruct users on the speed limits at the condominium. It also pleased us the fact that the first service was done by Carlos Eduardo Bonilha himself, Digifort’s executive director”.

CECOE – In a pioneer fashion in the city, in terms of technology, infrastructure and operation, this residential in Santos has its own control center.  Christened as CECOE (Centro de Comando e Observação Eletrônica / Command and Electronic Surveillance Center), the room monitors 24 hours a day the condominium’s movement.  This backing is composed by a computer analyst, security agents and motorized patrols.  The environment also concentrates the technology heart of the IP surveillance system, composed by state of the art servers, modern switches for data traffic, storage units for image storage and six 47 inch LED displays for the real-time visualization of all monitored areas.

.

“The resources for monitoring the perimeter, intrusion, suspect objects, detection of movement and of vehicles in transit are the ones used the most. We were trained at the Digifort Training Center, but there is something new every day.  Its interface is user-friendly and the speed of search results is great.  We store up to 90 days’ worth of images and record in the H264 format.  The software auditing part is also interesting, since we are able to know what happens in the surveillance and even monitor the system’s operation in itself. Digifort’s technical support has prompt service, easing our daily routine. It is a constant learning process”, Ricardo Peixoto, technical responsible for the CECOE.

Speed dome” cameras monitor the roads at the condominium

History – In the 40’s, the place was called “Morro do Loureiro” (Loureiro’s Hill), in a reference to Francisco Loureiro, land owner at the time.  At that time, the first access road was opened and the Santa Therezinha chapel at the top of the hill was built, giving the neighborhood its name.  During the 60’s, entrepreneur Cláudio Doneux bought the hill, urbanizing streets and commercializing plots in the form of condominium.  Known are one of the main private areas of São Paulo’s Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest), the residential preserves the fauna and flora typical for this type of biome.  Present-day residents study the installation of an ecological station for visitation, promoting tourism and environmental education at the site.

.

“At the end of the 90’s demands for CFTV (Closed Circuit Television) arose.  In the beginning, these systems only had analog technology.  We were then invited to develop a solution combining images in a single display and recorded using IP cameras, purchased by a condominium at Serra da Cantareira/SP.  It was due to this challenge that we began the pioneer development of our software.  Nowadays, we have the pleasure to service the Santa Thereza residential, looking back towards the start of this road in the IP Surveillance System market”, reveals Carlos Eduardo Bonilha, Digifort’s executive director.
