Cohasset, Mass., purchases surveillance technology for utilities and schools
Seekonk, Mass.-based Volpe Industries designed and customized Cohasset’s camera network to meet the specific monitoring needs of four of its public schools and the city’s municipal water treatment plant.
At the Cohasset water treatment plant, Volpe Industries installed a combination of Videolarm IP Ready outdoor environmental fixed-dome housings and outdoor fusion-dome enclosures combined with a variety of AXIS IP cameras. The hardware was deployed throughout the town at several remote locations including two water towers, three reservoir intake platforms and multiple water treatment plant locations. The enclosure models also were installed at the four public schools throughout the town.
The Videolarm IR50-3 Infrared Illuminators were deployed for night video surveillance. The IR50-3 provides superior nighttime and low-light video illumination on several of the cameras, according to Volpe Industries and Decatur, Ga.-based Videolarm.
The Videolarm equipment is powered by Volpe Industries’ DETEXI IP-based network video recorder (NVR) software. The NVR supports automatic video storage triggered from software motion sensing and/or hard inputs from the camera (motion detectors, light beams, door contacts, etc.). Touring capabilities are included, as well as several multimedia functions that are useful when remote notification is needed, according to the companies.
“The quality of Videolarm’s camera and equipment was an important part of completing this custom-build solution,” said Christopher Volpe, president and CEO of Volpe Industries. “In today’s security industry, organizations must be innovative, quick to market and have the ability to provide, implement and support state-of-the-art technology software, because failure is not an option when it comes to surveillance for your own vested business.”
All the surveillance systems that were deployed are fully scalable and can be quickly and easily expanded, according to the companies.
“Cities around the nation count on Volpe Industries capabilities to help them develop the surveillance networks that provide anytime anywhere visibility of people, property and operations,” said Videolarm President Ray Pagano. “It is rewarding to be Volpe’s technology partner on the Cohasset project, and we are proud to know that our equipment is playing a role in helping to provide city leaders with peace of mind.”
