Freedom Village One is an independent living facility operated by Goodwill. Their second project with Surveillance Technology Inc. (STI) in the spring of 2022 included another 16 channel H.265 4K DVR to support sixteen additional turret style 4K cameras. Until now, the property’s surveillance system covered only exterior and common areas. With this DVR security system expansion in Pinellas Park, there are cameras in the hallways on all five floors, as well as the elevator lobbies. Both camera systems are actively monitored by management in their offices to ensure maximum protection for their residents.
The 89-unit apartment building is home to people with limited incomes who have disabilities or are at least 62 years old. The property is architecturally barrier-free and offers services tailored to the unique needs of those who live there. The ability to monitor the wellbeing of residents is a necessity at this kind of property. Footage can be accessed locally by management staff and remotely from Goodwill’s corporate office, providing two layers of oversight for resident safety and to ensure operational excellence.
