Ridgewood Apartments- Grand Forks, ND

Surveillance installations

We completed a custom surveillance system for a customer in Grand Forks, ND earlier this week. The owners of the Apartment complex have been customers at their home on Gull Lake for several years. In a recent conversation while servicing the security system at their home on Gull Lake they mentioned the trouble they have experienced finding a qualified installer to make the surveillance system work properly. The system had been poorly installed and the equipment was low quality.

 Our trained installers removed the existing system, cleaned up the wiring, mounting hardware and installed new quality surveillance equipment. The new 16 camera color DVR has a high capacity memory and is able to be viewed on any computer or smart phone.

 

All of the indoor cameras were replaced and new Advanced dome Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) cameras were installed. This allows for better viewing of the parking and entry areas by allowing the cameras to scan and run tours of the areas. The images of the surveillance system are excellent.

 

The installation was completed in two days under the estimate and budget. The customers are amazed with the features and quality. Our installers also replaced the security system in the maintenance shop with a new DMP XT30 controls featuring a cellular communicator. This allowed the owners to get rid of that phone line and save an additional $750.00 per year on operating costs.

Trident Seafood Project

Custom design and fabrication

The Trident Seafood Security Project is going very well. The wiring has been completed and we completing installation of the hardware on the access and surveillance systems. We recently powered up and programmed part of the access control system and have the badge design, creation, and printing underway. Things are really taking shape and everyone is excited as we near completion of the systems.

We  recently installed a custom designed and fabricated access turnstile. This will regulate employees as they enter production of the facility. Knowing who is in the facility at all times is critical to the integrity of the food product and the safety of the employees.

 

The access system is by Keri Access and is custom built with Mercury firmware and software to allow for the custom programmable features required for this installation. Since there are a variety of door types throughout the facility, all of the locking hardware required custom installation. There is nothing cookie cutter about this project.

 Many of the interior and exterior cameras are installed and running. The image views are amazing on the new equipment by Nuvico. We will be installing the advanced view cameras throughout the production areas over the next week.
