Ilitch Holdings says it sought to reinvigorate Detroit by investing in public infrastructure and local businesses, and by promoting public safety in and around its Little Caesars Arena, Comerica Park, offices and retailers throughout ‘The District’ Detroit, a $1.4 billion sports and entertainment complex.
The company, in partnership with security integrator Identify Inc., installed a complete Avigilon security solution powered by video analytics that includes over 1,600 Avigilon cameras, Avigilon Control Centre (ACC) video management software and Avigilon’s Access Control Manager (ACM) system. The solution enables security operators to detect, search and verify critical events to save time and effort during investigations, the company says.
Illitch Holdings is also using Motorola Solutions’ MOTOTRBO professional two-way radios to communicate across its properties. When a suspicious activity is flagged using the Avigilon solution, security staff can contact each other using the radios and take action.
“We’re proud to see downtown Detroit thriving and our top priority is to create a safe and welcoming environment for our guests and local community,” said Tim Sopha, director of corporate security, Illitch Holdings Inc. “We chose Avigilon and Motorola Solutions because, together, they provide us with a unique system for public safety that allows us to monitor, communicate and respond more effectively.”
