Triple-A baseball stadium unifies security system
BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte, N.C., home to the Triple-A minor-league baseball team Charlotte Knights, first opened in April 2014. The facility installed 50 network cameras from Axis Communications inside and outside the stadium.
Various doors within the facility have also been equipped with HID Global iClass readers and controllers, to secure access to ballpark personnel-only areas. All of these devices are viewed and managed within Security Center, through the Genetec Omnicast video surveillance system and Synergis access control system.
Bosch Intrusion Detection panels have also been unified within Security Center, providing BB&T Ballpark administrators with a global view of its security environment. Intrusion panel alarms and access-denied events are all synced with video from nearby cameras, so officers can quickly see what’s happening and respond.
“The system has been so easy to use and that was very important to us,” says Dan Rajkowski, Chief Operations Officer at BB&T Ballpark. “We have the ability to quickly playback video, pull access control reports, activate and deactivate employee badges, and monitor any intrusion events; and it’s all right there in one intuitive application. We don’t have to juggle between different monitors— that has made our team very efficient.”
