SecurOS is the Core for the Presidential Academy’s Security System

ISS has finished the comprehensive security system for one of the leading universities in the country.

The Facility

The Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of the Russian Federation (RANEPA, Presidential Academy) in Moscow

RANEPA is the largest socio-economic and humanities university in Europe. It has about 6,500 full-time employees. It provides education to about 100,000 students in Moscow. The Moscow campus has an area of more than 300 thousand square meters.

The Project’s Objective

To ensure the safety of students and faculty, and to maintain law and order at the highest level on the campus

The Solution

The university’s comprehensive security system based on the SecurOS Linux Edition VMS Platform includes:

  • 900+ cameras
  • 100 channels of the SecurOS Tracking Kit III situational awareness video analytics
  • 14 SecurOS video servers
  • 6 SecurOS WorkStations
  • SecurOS VideoWall

The Solution’s Overview

The university administration decided to upgrade the video surveillance system in order to improve the safety of applicants, students and faculty. The SecurOS VMS Platform based on the Linux OS became the nucleus of the new security system.

The Presidential Academy’s geographically distributed security system combined more than 900 surveillance and video analytics IP-cameras installed in the university buildings, dormitories and the hotel and residential complex, as well as in the surrounding areas. The cameras monitor entrances, staircases and hallways, classrooms, laboratories and utility rooms, parking lots, checkpoints, etc.

In addition to operator workstations, there is a SecurOS VideoWall which is installed in the RANEPA Security Service main office to facilitate joint work with video data coming from remote sites. The Academy’s security officers perform their duties more efficiently thanks to the situational awareness video analytics detectors used to detect objects left behind, smoke, intrusion, and a number of other incidents.

The video archive is stored on the SecurOS video servers for 30 days. Video recordings help investigate incidents and identify offenders who committed unlawful acts on campus.

Implementing the up-to-date video monitoring system improved the efficiency of detecting and eliminating potentially dangerous situations, and minimized the risk of damage to the university’s property. Now, security officers can quickly react to potentially dangerous situations and conflicts, and make sure that the university’s internal regulations are complied with.

Work Done

ISS engineers configured the software and trained customer employees to operate the SecurOS system, and, together with the integrator’s specialists, performed startup operations and put the system into service.
