Central Community College in Nebraska has multiple campuses and educational centres to serve approximately 90 different communities. CCC’s outdated lock-and-key system and access control technology weren’t meeting their security needs. On one campus alone there are 26 buildings with access control needs for students, staff, and vendors. The security team had to provide targeted scheduled access control for about 15 different user groups. Support and service “From past experience, we know that great technical support, customer service, and quick turnaround time are important," Ed Long, Physical Plant Director, Central Community, brivo.com. "We’re completely satisfied with Brivo, as it can scale to whatever and wherever we need. The learning curve was short and sweet.” Results The Brivo system allows CCC to continue to scale its access control across facilities. The system allows for creating and managing hundreds of groups with different access privileges. Dorms are locked 24/7 with controlled access to provide a high level of security for students. An extra measure of security is provided with limited-access holiday scheduling. The team can provide controlled access for vendors to come and go from different buildings. The system provides the confidence that CCC has an effective emergency plan in place.
In Neuss, Düsseldorf, and Meerbusch, ISR (International School on the Rhine) offers an excellent international education from kindergarten to grade 12. The teachers at ISR prepare students for the world's most prestigious universities, placing great emphasis not only on academic excellence but also on positive character development and the teaching of values. Since 2022, ISR has also been using the DeepHub whiteboard for this purpose. Test phase from 2022 "The modernisation of classrooms and the additional digitalisation of teaching methods are important concerns for us," explains Peter Soliman, Managing Partner of ISR. “Dahua's DeepHub whiteboard offers us versatile functionalities and the perfect solution for our needs.” Mohammed Aloof, Head of IT at ISR, adds, "We have already deployed the DeepHub whiteboards in some classrooms since 2022. The feedback we have received from teachers and our students has been extremely positive. Therefore, we have decided to install a more modern whiteboard in every classroom for even better learning conditions.” Improved visibility and interaction Students can read the text on the screen very well from all angles of the classroom The new whiteboards have significantly improved the visibility of the learning content. Students can read the text on the screen very well from all angles of the classroom. Due to the optimised brightness of the screen, classrooms no longer need to be darkened. "Being able to add handwritten information to documents on the whiteboard adds a lot of value for me," adds Bianca McLeod, a teacher at ISR and head of secondary education. Whiteboard function "The sensitivity here is just right. For example, I can also call up pre-made geometric shapes and use them for lessons. The whiteboard function allows me to save the pages afterward and call them up again at any time. The students can save the learning content by scanning a QR code." "Our teachers can also upload and use extensive materials and teaching aids on DeepHub, which is very practical and accommodates an increasingly paperless and thus environmentally friendly aspiration at ISR." DeepHub This two-way sharing system between DeepHub and the students' tablets is particularly practical Classroom interaction is also further encouraged with the DeepHub. For example, teachers encourage students to participate directly via the whiteboard and answer the quiz displayed on the DeepHub screen. This two-way sharing system between DeepHub and the students' tablets is particularly practical and allows for innovative and interactive teaching. More engaged and proactive "After almost a year of experience with DeepHub, I have noticed a positive change in my teaching," Ms McLeod points out. "The students have become more engaged and even more proactive. We are convinced that further upgrading of the screens will bring even more benefits!" Administration work is simplified The head of the IT department at ISR, Mr. Aloof, is also satisfied, "The Dahua DeepHub makes administration very easy." "A highly modern DeepHub device now replaces the old equipment, projector, speakers, microphone, countless cables, and much more. It makes the management work much easier." Clever all-in-one solution 4K 3840×2160 touch UHD display with a screen diagonal of 65 to 98 inches and a 178° viewing angle The DeepHub whiteboard ensures excellent presentation experiences and creative ideation by allowing participants to fully concentrate on the task at hand without having to worry about technical aspects. In doing so, its 4K 3840×2160 touch UHD display with a screen diagonal of 65 to 98 inches and a 178° viewing angle, combined with anti-glare technology, ensures a clear, more legible display, sharp images, and vivid colours. One-touch projection One-touch projection from up to four terminals via the USB wireless screen sharing dongle or eshare software simplifies collaborative presentations. In training situations and the classroom, knowledge can be conveyed intuitively and with fun in this way. At the same time, as part of a quality control process, other teachers, as well as academic coordinators, have the opportunity to participate in lessons from any location with internet access, even if they are not on-site, due to the interactive features. High-quality, interactive touchscreen The integrated camera (up to 5MP) and up to eight microphones enable powerful video conferencing The touch-active screen supports an optimal writing experience: Smooth writing works virtually in real-time with less than ten ms latency. Responses to touch and support for simultaneous writing vary depending on the application. The integrated camera (up to 5MP) and up to eight microphones enable powerful video conferencing. Due to its high audio and video quality, the Dahua interactive whiteboard is also suitable for seminars, business negotiations, and training. Compatibility Of course, comprehensive compatibility is also taken care of: the pre-installed Android and an optional Windows operating system enable the use of a wide range of productivity tools. This makes perfect sense, as dual operating systems offer a wide range of apps and software. The device is also compatible with popular third-party video conferencing software. Its competitive price and a three-year warranty ensure a high return on investment. In addition, the integrated Android as well as an optional Windows operating system ensure full compatibility with numerous teaching and learning programmes. Conclusion "ISR has many Dahua products in use. In the past, our security system, but now state-of-the-art interactive whiteboard technology in all classrooms. We are grateful for the support from a global pioneer in technology and IoT solutions," explains Peter Soliman. He concluded, "I am convinced that the new technology will add great value to ISR's students."
Located in the city of Gualeguaychú in Argentina, Carnaval del País is a festive season that runs for two whole months, holding the world record as the longest carnival in the world. It is full of lively events featuring energetic samba dancers dressed in sequins and feathers as well as parades of colourful and beautifully crafted floats. To accommodate the event, the city built its own Sambadrome called the Corsódromo, the first of its kind in Argentina. It has an extension of 500 metres long and a track width of 10 useful metres, which can hold up to 38,000 spectators. Challenges at Carnaval del País Implementing an outdoor video monitoring solution that can cover a capacity of 38,000 people was a massive challenge and not an easy task for the entire team. The client required a surveillance system that can monitor the crowd’s security; from the moment they enter the stadium, watch and enjoy the show, until they leave the premises. Recorded video footage must also be readily available for further analysis in case of an incident. Solution: Vari-focal Bullet WizMind Network Cameras This intelligent camera is also equipped with deep-learning algorithms that enable intelligent functions The team deployed several types of Dahua cameras around Corsódromo to monitor the situation during the carnaval. A dozen 4MP IR Vari-focal Bullet WizMind Network Cameras (IPC-HFW5442H-ZHE) were deployed to cover various areas of the venue. Aside from providing clear and vivid images, this intelligent camera is also equipped with deep learning algorithms that enable intelligent functions such as video metadata, smart object detection, people counting, and more. It has an IP67 waterproof rating and an IK10 vandal-proof rating, making it durable and reliable for outdoor applications. Cameras installed Other cameras installed include 4MP 32x Starlight IR WizSense Network PTZ Cameras (SD5A432XB-HNR), 2MP 33x Starlight+Laser WizMind Network PTZ Camera (DH-SD6AL233XA-HNR), and Integrated Solar Monitoring System (DH-SD6C3432XB-HNR-AGQ-PV). After each show, the situation at the entrance is also analysed through the recorded footage (via NVR5216-8P-I/L) to reduce waiting/queuing time in the future. Integrated alarm systems All cameras are checked one day before each event to ensure their optimal condition and performance It also helps in deploying security personnel in the right location to avoid unauthorised entry, theft, or any misdemeanour. What’s more, cameras with integrated alarm systems were strategically installed in crucial zones and were supervised by dedicated personnel regularly. All cameras are checked one day before each event to ensure their optimal condition and performance during the event. Results: Efficient monitoring solution The Dahua video monitoring solution deployed in Corsódromo for the Carnaval del País is a technological step forward from what it had in previous years. Through this new monitoring system, the management of the venue can efficiently monitor the situation inside the stadium and make necessary adjustments if needed. It helps optimise the entry time of spectators to avoid congestion and assists in assigning security personnel at crucial points around the venue to prevent incidents from happening; all of which contribute to the enhanced on-site experience of every spectator and improved security measures of Corsódromo.
The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn is one of the four Inns of Court and operates as an active and thriving society of lawyers, sprawling across 11 acres in central London and dating as far back as 1422. The title of “Lincoln’s Inn” refers both to the Society and the location, which houses the Society’s facilities, numerous barristers’ chambers, and several solicitors’ offices. Inns of Court The Inns of Court originally provided accommodation for law students who learned their craft by attending court. Currently, the Inns exist to aid students in pursuing the legal profession and serve as landlords, and custodians of historic buildings, banqueting and events venues, and tourist attractions. To fulfill these many functions, Lincoln’s Inn required security that would meet their high standards while protecting buildings that had been in continuous operation for centuries. Need for a key tracking system The Inn not only provides services to law students but also operates as an attraction and a hosting venue As the Inn not only provides services to law students, but also operates as an attraction and a hosting venue, many different levels of security need to be in place for a variety of users, full-time employees, temporary contractors, event staff, students, and others. For this reason, Lincoln’s Inn needed to have a comprehensive system to track and monitor the many keys for the extensive venue. Challenges due to manual management For some time, keys at Lincoln’s Inn were managed manually through an analogue system, with staff retrieving keys from an open cabinet and recording key usage with pen and paper. However, because at times manual recordkeeping can be less than diligent, this allowed for confusion as to who had what keys and when and made it possible for keys to be stashed away or used by unauthorised persons. KeyWatcher Touch key control KeyWatcher Touch provides us with a fully secure means of key storage and management" With the variety and quantity of people moving throughout Lincoln’s Inn on any given day, a more secure solution was needed. To update and improve key control, Chief Porter Nicholas Bracey turned to the KeyWatcher Touch key control system by Morse Watchmans. “KeyWatcher Touch provides us with a fully secure means of key storage and management. We considered several products on the market and found the Morse Watchmans solution to be the most flexible and easy-to-use system,” said Mr. Bracey. Installation of two key units “The high quality and ease of scalability were two of the top features we required, and the KeyWatcher Touch was a perfect fit for our key control needs.” Lincoln’s Inn installed two KeyWatcher Touch units configured for a total of 192 keys or keyrings in January 2016, and the system has been in daily use since the installation. It utilises the Inn’s IT network and is fully integrated with the PCs in the security office and the office of Chief Porter to provide maximum flexibility and ease of use. KeyWatcher software Tracking keys as they were removed and returned was a top concern, so the ability of the KeyWatcher to record who has removed what key and when was exceptionally important. “The keys are always secure, rather than being openly accessible to staff. There is no longer paperwork to be managed for logging, it is all taken care of with the KeyWatcher software,” continued Mr. Bracey. Easy and accurate management KeyWatcher Touch has provided Lincoln’s Inn with the functionality and security it requires to easily manage its 192 keys “Audits and reports are fast and accurate, and it has led to our staff becoming more responsible overall.” KeyWatcher Touch has provided Lincoln’s Inn with the functionality and security it requires to easily manage its 192 keys, while also providing an easily accessible audit trail. In addition, the system has proven hardy and resilient in daily use over two years. Exceptional service “We have had continuity with Morse Watchmans since day one,” finished Mr. Bracey. “Demonstrations of function, installation, and training were all handled almost entirely by the same representative, in addition to subsequent orders." "The continuously exceptional service has ensured that we were getting exactly the product that would best serve Lincoln’s Inn and provide us with the security we need.”
