VIVOTEK Cameras Offer Maximum Security to the Doltone House in the Jones Bay Wharf Marina

Background

The Jones Bay Wharf marina, developed in the early twentieth century in Darling Harbour, offers spacious berths for commercially registered super-yachts. The wharf is located right by one of the busiest entertainment districts in Sydney, Australia, where convention centers, aquarium, museums and attractions are within close proximity. In particular, the Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf is a grand heritage venue situated on the Wharf overlooking the city skyline, the Harbour Bridge and the entire Darling Harbour precinct. The Doltone House is one of the most favoured local venues for meetings and conferences, events and weddings, food and wine emporium, cooking classes and casual dining and catering.

Solution

For extensive video surveillance coverage and maximum security on the premises, the Doltone House required new indoor and outdoor camera installations. To make guests feel comfortable, the indoor cameras had to be discrete, versatile, elegant in design and “easy on the eyes”. The outdoor cameras also had to be aesthetically and visually pleasing in order to blend in with the architectural design of the building. Furthermore, the outdoor cameras needed to be 100 percent water resilient and weatherproof, withstanding harsh environmental elements like wind, rain and salt air. In addition to performance, cost was a major factor of consideration for this project.

A total of 86 pieces of VIVOTEK FD8134 indoor cameras and 16 pieces of the FD8361 outdoor cameras were installed for this project. Both models come with 3-axis mechanical design built in. The 3-axis mechanical and industrial design is highly sophisticated and enables very flexible, simple hardware installation for either ceiling or wall mounting. The FD8134 thus becomes versatile and is able to easily accommodate individual site requirements. In this case, the FD8134s were installed both ways. On the other hand, the 2-Megapixel FD8361 comes with weatherproof and vandal-proof housing. For this specific project, most of the FD8361s were wall-mounted. Both FD8134 and FD8361 come with IR illuminators for day/night surveillance.

The cameras are administered with VIVOTEK ST7501 management software, which supports powerful features like real-time 32-channel video monitoring and simultaneous 16-channel playback, easy-to-use snapshot capability, dual-stream live viewing and recording, event-triggered or scheduled recording modes and seamless interoperation with all VIVOTEK cameras. The extensive surveillance coverage offered by the FD8134 (indoor) and the FD8361 (outdoor) ensures that the Doltone House compound is safely and effectively secured against any threat or danger.
