Fishers, Ind.-based Stanley Security is well known for its work with correctional facilities. The company has earned numerous SAMMY honors for its work with detention system integration. Its latest recognition comes for its project with Hamilton County’s (Ind.) correctional facilities.

“The project aimed to integrate hundreds of systems into one user interface for complete facility visibility and control. It also included updating integrated solutions across the jail, annex, community corrections, judicial center and Hamilton County household hazardous waste facility,” says Dustin Hackleman, senior sales engineer for Stanley Security.

Spread across six facilities, Stanley upgraded and added 750 cameras, programmed 16 touchscreen control stations and added multiple digital communication systems to manage 1,087 intercom stations.

Additionally, 860 doors and 193 duress stations are now controlled and monitored, and several access control systems were upgraded to administer 249 proximity readers. Utility control systems were upgraded to manage 533 utility control points.

The 750 Axis IP megapixel cameras were an upgrade over the facilities’ analog cameras and allowed Hamilton County personnel to access, manage and monitor facilities’ video surveillance footage from a single, remote platform.

When it came Stanley selecting the devices that would be used for this project, Hackleman says the products had to meet strict standards. “For example, all cameras exposed to the offender population were required to carry an IK10 impact resistance rating to withstand potential assault. In addition, the cameras captured footage at 1080p resolution or higher to allow for the best visual quality in both live and recorded video.”

Genetec Security Center was utilized as the VMS due to its ability to manage thousands of cameras across multiple locations. Hamilton County needs to retain it surveillance video for a minimum of one year, so Stanley chose the Veracity ColdStore product due to its high capacity, reliability and sequential filing system.

To ensure satisfaction, Stanley collaborated very closely with Hamilton County, from beginning to end. “Every critical component and manufacturer was presented to the end user during the design process. This allowed the end user to sample products or software prior to installation to ensure their confidence in the provided solution,” explains Hackleman. Following the installation, Stanley spent more than 80 hours training end user staff.
