Hanley Plaza in Tampa, FL is home to a variety of retail establishments, including a
supermarket, automotive store, medical office, and spa and beauty service providers. The
owners engaged Surveillance Technology, Inc. (STI) for a two part installation. Initially, STI
installed an 8 channel H.265 4K DVR to support five bullet style 4K cameras offering 24/7 color
technology, which captures color footage even in night vision mode. Additional commercial outdoor
security cameras provide broad views of the front parking area, rear storage and employee
entrances, and a courtyard with bulk waste collection containers.
During Surveillance Technology’s second visit, another 4 channel H.265 4K DVR was added to
support four more 24/7 color cameras with 3.6MM fixed lenses covering the front parking lot
and rear of the property. These cameras are connected directly to the 4K DVR recorder to
ensure the footage is first stored securely on the DVR, then that recording is sent to the original
equipment package over a high speed wireless bridge connecting the buildings. STI has chosen
this approach to avoid reliance on wireless service for recording. Sending camera data to a DVR
via wireless internet before recording would risk losing the footage before it’s recorded. The
wireless bridge is just one way Hanley Plaza owners, tenants, and shoppers benefit from
Surveillance Technology’s experience.
