Mobotix Corp., an industry-leading provider of high-resolution,
network-based security solutions, today announced that Valley Health, a
non-profit health care group in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland,
has deployed more than 100 MOBOTIX cameras across four of its six
hospitals and now operates at least one of each type of MOBOTIX camera.
Valley Health chose the MOBOTIX system to slowly replace its fleet of
analog cameras, as well as reduce camera counts with panoramic views,
streamline incident investigations with delivery of high-resolution
images and allow for discreet camera placement.
Valley Health is utilizing the 360-degree views of MOBOTIX’s Q24 cameras
and the 6.2-megapixel potential of the D14 DualDome cameras to secure
interior hallways, intersections and entrances. In addition, MOBOTIX M12
cameras provide superb perimeter security with day and night features
from hospital rooftops.
"Using MOBOTIX cameras that have so many unique functions built in for a
variety of unique applications is great, especially for larger
customers,” said Kevin Ganczak, Chief Technology Officer, Executive
Protection Systems, the project’s integrator. "MOBOTIX cameras provide
us and our customers with a lot of flexibility to find the best camera
for the job and exceed customer expectations.”
Valley Health is also leveraging several MOBOTIX T24 Door Stations that
are customized by EPS to replace one hospital’s audio detection system.
The T24s are configured to detect loud noises in the parking garage
stairwells and alert authorities. The entire system is an upgrade over
the hospital’s previous sound detection system because it provides first
responders with video of the scene, helping them to rule out false
alarms and providing personnel with knowledge of the situation to enable
the appropriate response.
"It’s similar to those blue call boxes you often see around college
campuses,” said Arthur Yow, Director of Safety and Security, Valley
Health. "This is a great product because it gives us the sound detection
we were searching for as well as the visual capabilities to weed out
false alarms and prepare first responders. In addition, employees,
patients and visitors can use it to contact authorities in non-emergency
Valley Health found additional ROI and utility by deploying
MxControlCenter, professional video management software included with
the purchase of MOBOTIX cameras at no additional charge. This allows the
company to quickly and easily grant access to camera feeds for any
employee who might need it through a Web browser. Combined with the
MOBOTIX decentralized approach to surveillance, it delivers a
comprehensive security system at an extremely cost-effective price.
"Valley Health’s MOBOTIX deployment is a great representation of the
unique application possibilities of our cameras,” said Steve Gorski,
General Manager, Americas, MOBOTIX. "Every camera has a unique function
for different scenarios, and that enhances the versatility of MOBOTIX
