North Richland Hills uses IP video technology to expand surveillance effectiveness and reduce costs

Texas town standardizes on IP surveillance solutions from IQinVision to expand, improve overall security


Hughes continued, "IQinVision has solved our most pressing needs to have multiple views with various resolution levels, our city administration and City Council are happy about minimizing the equipment on a brand new building, and accounting is quite pleased that we’ve increased overall productivity with the same equipment at a lower cost."

"We bought these IQeyes for one purpose and now we’ve upgraded them for added functionality. If I compare two cameras, one gives me nothing more while the IQeye camera gives me added ROI, why would I buy anything else? It’s great, we purchased cameras for the resolution, we have since turned them into much more—how sweet is that?"

North Richland Hills is about to start construction on a new Recreation Center. Hughes explained how this will be the first building in the city in which video is being designed in prior to construction. "As we did the walk-through, we looked for places where we can put the IQeyes. This will be a Silver LEED building, so it will be getting a lot of attention."

Each IQeye will be getting a lot of attention too, as Hughes and Bradford decide which IQeyes to utilize the IQ Vcam feature to create additional views, while minimizing the security footprint, and cutting installation and maintenance costs. "We currently have plans to use all of our IQeye cameras in multi-view [Vcam] mode if needed. We’ve also talked about moving the IQeye cameras to expand our views and give us exactly what we need," Hughes said.
