Axis cameras have become a perfect ‘fit’ for the 19th century interiors of the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Petersburg.


In our time, security is highly valued. Therefore, the project, aimed at equipping a premium class hotel with video surveillance means, included two tasks: creating a high-performance video surveillance system, capable of fitting seamlessly into the interiors and facades of the 19th century mansion - the Lobanov-Rostovsky Palace (‘House of lions’), which is now Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg.


Specialists of the company-integrator Specmontazhservice, Ltd. developed an integrated security system, which included a wide range of Axis products. Key arguments in favor of this decision were high quality and broad functionality of the equipment, enabling complex tasks and satisfying high requirements of the Security Service of the Four Seasons Hotel chain worldwide.


The work resulted in implementation of a video surveillance system, unparalleled in any of the Four Seasons Hotel chain. A wide range of Axis network cameras, with their unique technical capabilities, enabled solving a daunting task organically and at the same time almost invisibly, to ‘include’ modern equipment in the 19th century interiors, thus providing an opportunity to get a high-quality video signal in those parts of the building, where it had been previously impossible.

The new luxury Four Seasons Hotel is located in the newly renovated House of Lions, the former princely residence in the historic 19th century Admiralteysky district just two blocks away from the Hermitage Museum and not far away from Nevsky Avenue and the Mariinsky Theatre. Thanks to the refined interior and excellent hospitality of Four Seasons Hotel, it is easy to immerse oneself in the imperial past of Russia, rampage again in all its glory and splendor.

Meeting all wishes of the client is one of our top priorities. Integration of Axis network video solutions has helped to improve the quality of security service.

Customer safety comes first

The integration of a high-performance video surveillance system, capable of fitting seamlessly into the 19th century interiors and facades, has been successfully implemented by Specmontazhservice, Ltd., using a wide range of products by Axis. More than 200 AXIS P3301 and AXIS P1344 Network Cameras and other accessories have been installed at Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg. The system performs around-the-clock to provide high-quality video images from around the building and instantly identify people.

Integrated network video surveillance system

Using specialized software, the system informs the Security Service of forgotten things and missing items within the surveillance coverage. In addition, this system allows identifying registration numbers of incoming and outgoing vehicles, followed by refusal or granting them a passage to the territory, and informs a security officer of cases, when an unauthorized access to the object (break-in, holding of a door after an authorized passage) takes place through the instant video output from this zone and alerting with a corresponding sound signal.

Technical support and partnership

Permanent cooperation with Axis and other major companies, presented in the security market, allows creating high-tech security systems and implementing the most complicated tasks.

Thanks to Axis products, which are advanced developments in the sphere of video surveillance equipment, as well as to integration opportunities, the creation of complex integrated systems at objects with high security levels has been made possible. Due to the highly efficient technical support service and lifetime warranty on Axis products, operation of such a system does not require major financial investments.
