Casino security dealt strong hand with Axis

Stones Gambling Hall deploys deep Axis portfolio for robust, creative casino security solution

“We have Axis cameras above each table providing multiple directional overviews, and PTZs set on schedules we can modify at any time. We are also able to assist our local police department with camera footage of thefts, or break-ins, or other incidents in our area. We are able to ensure the safety of not just our patrons, but also our neighbors. It’s really become a plus here in our city of Citrus Heights.” David Gray, IT manager, Stones Gambling Hall.


Opened in 2014, Stones Gambling Hall is a card house in Citrus Heights, California offering poker, blackjack, baccarat, Pai Gow and other card games. The casino prides itself on its commitment to customer experience and its saloon-style atmosphere. So when it was planning its video surveillance system, it needed an option that could blend with the design while still providing the highest degree of protection.


Stones hired Los Angeles, CA-based systems integrator and Axis partner CCS to design a system that would maintain the casino’s aesthetics. CCS assigned Ryan Gleason as the Project Manager, and he was immediately tasked to working with the architect on systems selection and planning. Gleason and the design team selected Axis network cameras for the job, as the deep product portfolio would allow them flexibility with a variety of options for each part of the casino. CCS installed a range of cameras offering high definition resolution, discrete installation and options for remote maintenance and control. The system is managed through Genetec Security Center, the unified security platform which includes the Omnicast IP video management system (VMS), and runs on Dell PowerEdge servers.


The Axis cameras provide critical support for the Stones security team. The high definition video provides full detail of card games and money-counting areas. Because the cameras can be adjusted remotely, the casino can quickly change views to monitor specific areas, such as a popular game. CCS was also able to integrate a custom application they developed to take snapshots with a touch of a button in order to help the casino streamline tax reporting on transactions over $10,000.
