SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEM
The Godfrey Hotel, Chicago, IL
Foresite designed and built an IP Security Camera Surveillance System at one of Chicago’s premier luxury hotels to protect operations, reduce risk, increase security, and provide ease of use and maintenance. The system consisted of: (60) IP megapixel cameras throughout hotel to best capture points of ingress/egress activity; POE switches to power all cameras over Cat6 which connected to the fiber backbone for transmission of video to NVR with 3TB HDD records with H.264 compression and capability to store approximately 20 days of footage. The system was configured with two network cards allowing cameras to reside on their private LAN. Foresite provided and installed necessary camera licenses; furnished, configured, and installed (18) outdoor/Environmental-rated IP cameras in all exterior and/or parking garage locations. (8) of the cameras were equipped with vendor technology to compensate for extreme lighting contrast. Cameras automatically toggled between full color and day/night capability with sensitivity down to .03 lux or .0013 lux. Foresite also furnished and installed vendor software allowing remote users to monitor the system.
