Miguel Servet University Hospital

Improvement in the surveillance system thanks to Axis

The hospital is exposed to a high risk level because of its layout and the number of people entering the premises each day.

The Mission

The Miguel Servet University Hospital had no form of theft protection facility or surveillance system. To monitor the critical areas, the hospital staff decided to install a video surveillance system. The system would be manned 24 hours a day by surveillance staff in a new control center. The purpose of the project was to provide the hospital facilities with an image capture and recording system that could be easily integrated into theinfrastructure.

The Solution

The hospital staff and the integrator, DeInta, decided to install a network video system. The main reasons for choosing this system were its flexibility and scalability. It was decided to proceed with the installation in several stages, something that would have been very complicated had an analog CCTV solution been chosen. The system now comprises 18 Axis network cameras, 6 Axis video servers and Milestone XProtect® software.

The Result

The project has provided the conditions and features requested by the hospital, and represents the initial stage in its security coverage plan. "Since the video surveillance system was installed, the improvement has been absolute; from an average of one theft a week, we had none during the first 5 months the system was operating. We also have peace of mind knowing that, with the new digital video surveillance system, the new control center and the security staff, the hospital is being constantly monitored." says José Ramón Vera, Security Section Manager, Miguel Servet University Hospital. DeInta S.L., a partner of Axis Communications, is a technology company located in Zaragoza, Spain. They develop, design and install communications and audiovisual systems.
