ESP Provides CCTV Upgrade for Hotel Leisure Complex

The Village Hotel Club Blackpool has long been a seaside favourite for guests. With indoor and outdoor pools plus an 18 hole golf course and extensive Health & Leisure Club, it remains a popular destination for families, conference guests and golfers alike.

As part of a refurbishment programme at the hotel complex, a new CCTV system was required to replace the old and unreliable existing one. A site visit by one of the ESP Area Sales Managers was set up where a full demonstration of a range of CCTV systems was carried out and discussions took place on the best system to provide cover initially for the indoor and outdoor swimming pool areas. The swimming area previously had no coverage at all, and a suitable CCTV solution was required for health and safety reasons, with screens needed for the lifeguard and the general office areas.

The CCTV system chosen was specified with a view to it being rolled out to further areas of the hotel, once the initial swimming pool area had been resolved. The products installed were from ESP’s 24/7 Colour CCTV range and included the 24/7 IP 64 channel, 12TB NVR, five of the 24/7 IP PoE 8MP 2.8mm dome cameras in a white finish, and two 19.5cm LED monitors.

ESP’s 24/7 Colour IP POE CCTV range is designed to offer superior, reliable, and straightforward installation solutions and will provide sharp detail, in colour, day or night.

There are 18 individual products that make up the 24/7 Colour CCTV range.  This includes 12 cameras offering 2MP, 5MP and 8MP resolutions and each one is available in a choice of dome or bullet camera designs and in a white or grey finish. There are six different NVRs available including a 4 channel NVR in the Rekor IP collection. The HDView IP PoE range consists of 8MP NVRs with a broad range of channel options available – 4, 8, 12, 16, 32 and 64-channels.  There is also a number of two and four camera kits available in the Rekor IP 24/7 range, with a choice of dome or bullet camera design options and a white or grey finish.

The main features in the range are in the cameras themselves due to the ‘24/7’ colour function. The cameras use low light image sensors, which are able to use background light to produce a colour image in reduced light environments. This means that individuals and vehicles, for example, can be identified more clearly at night or where light settings are low.  If the background light is insufficient for the low light image sensors to produce a colour image, the white LEDs on the cameras have the facility to activate by virtual line crossing and permitter intrusion set by the user.

All cameras have an IP67 rating for external use. They are equipped with infrared LEDs which are the default mode when the white LEDs are not in activation mode. This ensures that the white LEDs are not on constantly, which will be unwanted by the majority of users.  The cameras also include a discreet microphone and speaker for two way audio function which is controlled via the app – ESP IP PRO.

The main feature of the NVRs in the 24/7 Colour CCTV systems is that they offer 8MP recording. In other words, they offer support for high resolution cameras in record, playback and live view modes.  With a choice of 4-64 Channel NVRs available, ESP is providing a breadth of NVR capability to support a range of applications from small to large.

Other features and benefits include:

250 PoE function. PoE models provide greater flexibility to the installer by supporting cameras up to 250 meters, resulting in the need for fewer additional power supplies and PoE switches required for large cable runs.

Pre-installed Surveillance Hard Drive. ESP pre-installs purpose-built surveillance hard drives. Unlike standard PC hard drives, surveillance drives are designed to operate and handle data recording continuously.

Intelligent record options such as line crossing and perimeter detection. This offers a flexible choice on what triggers the system to record, resulting in more critical recordings and reduced wasted recorded footage.

All cameras and NVRs in ESP’s extensive 24/7 CCTV range are 100% NDAA Compliant.
