Westford, Mass. — Dec. 9, 2015 — Tyco Security Products announced that WinnaVegas Casino Resort in Sloan, Iowa, has deployed a complete security solution using the victor Unified security management platform to integrate its access control and video surveillance systems for use throughout its recently expanded casino facilities, hotel, and parking lots.
In addition to the deployment of the victor Unified Client, WinnaVegas Casino and Resort added a host of new Illustra IP PTZ and mini-dome cameras from Tyco Security Products. The Illustra Pro PTZ cameras’ ability to move into position at a rate of up to 512 degrees per second allows WinnaVegas security officers to quickly and more efficiently monitor suspicious behavior in real time.
The new Illustra PTZ cameras provide high-resolution video, low latency, and the discreet size desired for the installation. The victor platform and new VideoEdge network video recorders (NVRs) and hybrid recorders provide a seamless, single-user interface for surveillance staff to monitor both access control and surveillance alarm events.
“Our new and existing video products from Tyco Security Products work well together, and the integration has been truly seamless,” said Joe Twaddle, lead technician, surveillance, WinnaVegas Casino Resort. “The new surveillance system is backwards-compatible, which means we can continue to leverage our existing surveillance investments when upgrading in the future.”
With more than 400 employees, WinnaVegas Casino Resort houses more than 850 slot machines, 10 casino table games, and a poker room. More than 43,000 people visit the facility each month, with annual revenues reported at about $140 million.
Thanks to its new security solution, the casino’s security personnel are better able to manage live and recorded video directly from video devices, including the new VideoEdge NVRs/hybrid recorders and legacy video recorders, using the victor Unified Client. VideoEdge’s Smart Search uses motion data collected with video while it is recorded to enable WinnaVegas staff to quickly search for, review, and export event findings as needed.
With integrator partner North American Video, WinnaVegas Casino Resort has also deployed the victor Unified Client to manage its video and doors at its onsite event center, a facility that hosts events and includes rentable community meeting rooms.
