Discreet eyes watch over the safety of tourists

Alpina Dolomites Lodge chooses Axis network cameras to protect its hotel guests during their stay

The Axis network cameras have fully satisfied our requirements. The difference in performance when compared to analog cameras installed at another hotel complex belonging to the same owners and compared to other vendors IP products is striking.“ Roland Oberhofer, Managing Director of Alpina Dolomites Gardena Health Lodge & Spa.


Alpina Dolomites Lodge, a recently built tourist accommodation with high-profile clientele, was faced with the need to have a video surveillance system that could protect the safety of its guests without being invasive of their privacy, and that would fit in perfectly with the modern architecture and design of the complex. Located within a scarcely populated natural park of about 7,000 hectares with nearly no visitors during the low season, the hotel had the need to monitor not only its indoor premises, but also the surrounding area.


The chosen system features a Milestone server and 46 Axis network cameras that are particularly compact and discreet and which, due to the quality of their image and excellent performance, provide the hotel with an all-round and detailed overview of its narrow and deep areas, such as long indoor corridors, as well as the more spacious ones, like the garden and swimming pool. To allow remote monitoring via mobile devices and fixed stations in another building located 27 km away, part of the IP architecture is of type 2x point-to-point redundant wi-fi, capable of supporting flows of high-quality video footage, even over long distances.


The implemented solution has configured an extremely reliable and discreet video surveillance system, which in no way is a nuisance to the hotel guests or a blemish on the overall aesthetics of the facility. The hotel owners can view high-resolution images and monitor the premises anytime from a smartphone or any monitoring station offsite.
