The University of Salamanca is the oldest university in Spain. Together with the University of Bologna, Oxford University, and Sorbonne University, it is one of the four oldest universities in Europe. The university includes a technology park, with research and design laboratories as well as offices for developers of innovative products and technologies. A recent addition was made to the technology park: an ultra-modern multifunctional four-story building with over 8,900 square meters (approximately 96,000 square feet) of floor space.
The new building needed an effective security and surveillance system. The client wanted a flexible next-generation system with support for IP cameras and easy scalability, as well as integration with the building's access control system: this integration helps to prevent burglaries, vandalism, and unauthorized intrusions. This is why the new system was built around Intellect Lite video management software, which is an optimal solution for mid-sized and small facilities that can later be upgraded to the full-fledged Intellect package for handling the largest sites. Since lighting conditions inside and around the building constantly change, it was necessary to install ultra-sensitive cameras that can capture high-quality video at any time of day or night. The installer was WAF, a longstanding AxxonSoft partner in Spain.
The Intellect Lite platform was coupled with Brickcom OB-130N and VD-130N cameras. The OB-130N is an outdoors IP bullet camera; the VD-130N is a dome IP anti-vandal camera with a Sony Exmor™ sensor for increased image brightness in low-light scenes. The VD-130N has an IP67 rating for weather- and vandal-proof ruggedness for surveillance that is effective both indoors and outdoors.
The Intellect Lite-based system allows viewing live video and archives, as well as remote monitoring, a convenient feature for operators. The solution met all the requirements of the University of Salamanca, whose staff was enthusiastic about the integrated protection system for the new building.
