In addition to the solutions employed in urban, corporate and industrial security, the coverage provided by Digifort is also able to satisfy demands within the residential segment. In a recent success case recorded in the city of Santos/SP, the first Brazilian IP Surveillance Software addressed the demands for electronic surveillance at “ Morro Santa Therezinha“.   Now, in a project developed with equipment and technologies from Axis Communications, one of the world’s leading camera manufacturers, Digifort provided security of information and video analysis with digital quality at the “Associação Jardins GĂȘnova”, an horizontal condominium located in the municipality of UberlĂąndia, MG.

.

Designed by JE Consultoria & Treinamentos, the initial topology was comprised of 26 cameras, with emphasis for the “Speed Dome” models with high resolution IP technology in HD and Full HD, both manufactured by Axis. Furthermore, a fiber optics network and 32 Digifort Enterprise 6.7 licenses make up the system’s management with growth in scale, supported by an IBM server and a “ThinkClient Lenovo” image station with three monitors. The “Keyboard” and an upgrade for the software’s new 7.0 version are already in the process for acquisition. The new resources will provide even more agility in surveillance and greater redundancy to ensure the security of all stored data.

.

One of the innovations in this upgrade will be the use of SD memory cards in the cameras, whereas the software itself shall collect the images stored in these devices in the event of network failure. The automation of the condominium via Digifort is also part of the site’s technological expansion project. “All of this will provide support to our surveillance center, which operates 24 hours per day, providing control, video analysis, security, and comfort for the condominium residents. These were the characteristics that influenced the choice of dynamic, scalable, and innovative systems that Axis and Digifort have”, reveals FlĂĄvio Luis de Oliveira, director-president of Jardins GĂȘnova and a telecom engineer.

Perimeters receive surveillance

He also made a point of acknowledging the technical and operational importance of JE Consultoria & Treinamentos during the development of the project. “As a systems architect, consultant Jonas Rocha displayed total knowledge about the products and understood quite well the real need of our internal scenario. Such conduct was essential towards justifying the investment made, since all residential condominiums go through a persuasion process when adopting tools of this type. The approval process slows down most of the times, but at Jardins GĂȘnova it was possible to prove that it was indeed worth investing in state-of-the-art technology, quality and innovation”, concludes the engineer.

.

Planning – The project in UberlĂąndia was divided into several phases. In the first phase, the old system was replaced by Digifort and the technological transition was carried out with total success and customer approval. In sequence, the following phase was dedicated towards evaluating, replacing and installing the new cameras. In the third phase, by updating the surveillance system to Digifort version 7.0, the main resources at the condominium shall have a “failover” redundancy (cluster of a set of servers), ensuring the continuity of the system, edge recording for image storage in the event of loss of communication in the network, and a “bookmark” system to save visitor data.

.

Rocha explains that the customer was dissatisfied with his reality. “We deployed Digifort and improved the situation immediately. We replaced four cameras and installed 14 new models, all of them from Axis. We already had eight cameras fit to be used, totaling 26 cameras in the central surveillance system. It is noteworthy to emphasize that the previously-made investment was kept, by using computers, monitors, switches, cameras, and existing servers. The main advantage was the versatility of Digifort and Axis in adapting a pre-built scenario, preserving the previous investment, providing ease of operation, state-of-the-art technology, information security, and growth in scale for the future”.

.

The project further includes other resources with Digifort technology for residences, such as the installation of new Axis cameras, the use of bidirectional audio for totems at control points, panic buttons for emergencies, automation for the air conditioning at the gym, and lighting systems for the soccer field and multi-purpose sports courts. In the fourth phase, some locations will feature “video analytics” technology for the surveillance of restricted areas and monitoring of vehicles going the wrong way or outside the allowed speed limit. In a fifth phase, still to be deployed, there will be an LPR system to store vehicle license plates at the entrance, exit and surroundings of Jardins GĂȘnova condominium.

Security operates 24 hours on site

“We use Digifort and Axis for the quality and technologies that allow for the best results. The ligthfinder, for example, was a key feature since it captures images with true-to-life colors, even in low light.  Quite a few customers have stable cameras and VMS software, but do not use the potential due to the complexity and consider the solution expensive. The friendly interface, the differentiated support and the possibilities that Digifort provides do not allow this to happen. It is up to the integrators to think outside the box and make their customers’ surveillance systems a complete success. With the support from Jardins GĂȘnova, our work is headed in the right direction”, concludes the consultant.
