IDIS has provided a full 1,000 camera solution for the Zedwell Piccadilly Hotel in London, UK.

The video technology manufacturer collaborated with integration partner, Rukey Solutions, to ensure the project was completed in just two months.

Zedwell Piccadilly Hotel

The Zedwell Piccadilly was recently expanded and transformed with a top-to-bottom refurbishment.

According to IDIS, this included an extension with a major annex in neighbouring Great Russell Street, which brings the total number of rooms to over 700.

Video surveillance is an important resource for the hotel’s management team and staff.

Not only does this it improve safety, it enhances and subsequently improves guest experiences whilst ensuring security for visitors and employees.

Offering plug-and-play connectivity and immediate interoperability of IP cameras, NVRs and network accessories, IDIS DirectIP played a pivotal role in the project.

The new system is made up of 413 x full HD IR dome cameras, offering crisp and clear image capture even in low-light, including up to 20m distances in darkness.

The project also features 40 x 5MP IR Super Fisheye Compact cameras, replacing multiple fixed lens cameras and allowing the most efficient wide area scene coverage of the hotel’s communal areas.

In addition, 14 HD IR bullet cameras were installed to cover locations including entrances, exteriors and back-of-house areas including loading bays and stock rooms.

At the heart of the solution, making extended image storage affordable, are ten 8000 Series 4K NVRs.

The solution is supported and operated using IDIS Center VMS.

“The heart of London’s West End”

Jan Kotze, Head of Security, Zedwell said: “Guests look to us for a relaxing experience and great value in the heart of London’s West End and now, with this upgraded IDIS video solution, they also have the assurance of enhanced security, safety and the most efficient possible service.”
