Video Domain’s Solutions Secure
55 Public Medical Centers in Canary Islands.
Domain Technologies has been chosen to provide solutions for
securing 55 Public Medical Centers spread over the Canary
When the Centro de Salud Primaria de Canarias (Primary Health
Center of Canary Islands) decided to install a centralized
security system including remote video monitoring for all
of their 55 public medical centers spread over the islands,
Video Domain’s solutions were chosen.
“Up until then, the Health Centers Administration had
been using security guards to secure all of their public medical
centers, some of them on a 24hr basis, and their security
expenses were extremely high” said Rajiv Wadhwani, CEO
of Viratel – the sole distributors for Video Domain
products in the Canary Islands. “They wanted to set
up a security system that would be cost-effective yet efficient”.
The security consultants to the Health Centers Administration
proposed setting up one centralized control center for all
55 medical centers, located in the administrative center,
and installing a system whereby the control center could monitor
after-hour entry at the medical centers via remote video.
A NetiP* system was installed in each medical center to transmit
video from the medical centers to the control center over
an existing private IP network. In addition, four D-Cam**
cameras were installed in each building: one covering the
main entrance, one covering the emergency entrance, and two
covering reception – public areas.
* NetiP is a stand-alone IP Remote Digital Video/Audio Transmitter
that transmits high quality video and audio. It supports up
to 8 color cameras, audio channels, alarm triggers and relay
outputs. The MultiObserver software that comes with the NetiP
supports Video Alarm Verification and Virtual Guard Tours
**D-Cam cameras are inexpensive miniature covert cameras
featuring integrated high-quality camera, PIR detector and
very sensitive microphone. The camera and the PIR have a matching
field of vision.
During work hours, the control center does routine Virtual
Guard Tours of all 55 medical centers, to monitor that everything
is in order.
After hours, when the D-Cam PIR sensor triggers an alarm,
the NetiP automatically connects to the control center and
transmits live stream video and audio, so that the operator
can see exactly what is happening on site, what triggered
the alarm, and dispatch a response team if necessary.
“Video Domain’s combination of NetiP and D-Cam
provided a cost-effective solution not requiring complicated
installations, that resulted in our winning the tender over
all the competitors,” said Eli Suhareanu, Video Domain’s
VP Sales & Marketing. “The Health Centers Administration
is delighted with our solution, which is second to none when
integrated applications are required.”
