Located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers has 470 spacious hotel rooms, studios, and suites that are designed to provide comfort and style with personalized service and convenient amenities. Sheraton installed a video surveillance system approximately 10 years ago. The system included 160 analog cameras connected to 10 16-channel DVRs. Since then, the facility expanded and found the legacy system was inadequate to protect the renovated property and inferior compared to present-day technologies. The new video surveillance system Citek designed for Sheraton employs 76 Arecont Vision megapixel cameras. These cameras deliver greater area coverage than the previous 160 analog cameras. In addition to the savings from using far fewer cameras, the Arecont Vision megapixel cameras are PoE, which means reduced equipment and installation costs. All features are used by Sheraton. System cameras are controlled from a centralized security center using an Exacq video management system and an NVR recording solution.
