The Desert Highlands selected an Avigilon video surveillance system to protect residents and secure the grounds with 55 IP cameras.
Desert Highlands, a luxury golf club and community nestled in the Sonoran Desert of North Scottsdale, Ariz., has updated the community’s security system, installing a state-of-the-art video surveillance solution by Avigilon.
The upgraded security system at Desert Highlands includes 55 new IP cameras installed throughout the property. Other features of the system include new technology that allows the Desert Highlands security team the ability to locate vehicles or people with specific description criteria, and an appearance search feature that can recognize individuals based on various descriptions.
Avigilon security solutions are designed as easy-to-use software and hardware IP network products that include image capture, analysis, storage, transfer and playback of high-quality video surveillance footage with visually lossless compression — no perceptible loss of visual detail — and electronic access control management.
Typically, a luxury club and its community homeowner’s associations security systems are not connected.
With the Avigilon Surveillance System at Desert Highlands, the two security components are completely integrated with one another, which provides additional security measures and more proficiency.
“We wanted to transform our surveillance system at Desert Highlands to something more sophisticated and efficient, and the highly touted Avigilon surveillance system matched our needs,” says General Manager Monty Becton. “Providing our residents and members peace of mind and ensuring the Desert Highlands experience remains safe and comforting are our ultimate priorities.”
Desert Highlands’ energetic lifestyle consistently draws discerning families and active Boomers in equal measure — golfers, tennis enthusiasts, pet lovers and health and wellness enthusiasts. A full social calendar allows residents to also fully enjoy this peaceful community.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Desert Highlands offers a pantry for its members and residents, where they could buy essentials (paper items, disinfectant, bread, milk, cheese, deli, proteins, beverages, etc.) from the club without leaving the confines of the community. The club carefully packages the items and either has them delivered to their houses or places the groceries in front of the clubhouse for pick-up.
