Honeywell Antes Up CCTV for World Series of Poker


The World Series of Poker won’t make any bets on its security, selecting Honeywell Security to secure its 2005 event in Las Vegas. Honeywell Security will install a digital video system in a special facility being built at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino that will host this year’s World Series of Poker, which lasts from June 2 to July 15 and is actually made up of several tournaments.

Honeywell announced its union with the World Series of Poker at the Rio Hotel on April 6 during International Security Conference (ISC) West.

“The surveillance for the World Series of Poker must meet the same strict regulations that our casinos do, and we trust Honeywell to provide equipment that will meet these regulations,” says Tom Flynn, director of surveillance
for the Rio and Harrah’s resorts in Las Vegas. “Honeywell has proven their expertise at our casino, and we trust them to help ensure the safety of all tournament entrants, fans and prize money at this event as well.”

More than 150 cameras will be installed to monitor the tables, as well as the hundreds of poker players and thousands of poker fans expected at the World Series. Honeywell Security’s KD6i dome cameras will make up the P/T/Z portion of the system, while an enterprise network video recorder system will be used.
