River Rock Casino’s Surveillance

Doug Gilroy and Mark Bayrock of Advanced Audio Concepts, a Vancouver-based systems integrator, were given free reign to design, install and operate River Rock's complex surveillance system. Gilroy had freedom to design the system with several unique aspects, such as the use of video balun technology to integrate quickly, and an innovative design in the tech room that makes it easier for the operator to spot problems. The integrators also had a long-standing relationship with Honeywell and chose to use Honeywell products almost exclusively throughout the installation.

  • River Rock is the first resort-style casino to be built in Western Canada, and is one of the newest resort and casino combinations in the Great Canadian family, which includes seven casinos and one horseracing track. River Rock features 1,000 slot machines, 70 table games and Canada's largest Poker Room.

  • Using a mix of Honeywell products, from the DVR (digital video recorder) and matrix switcher, to the hard drives and software, to the panels and the cameras, Gilroy and Bayrock constructed a security system that's second to none. Gilroy, Bayrock and their team of 10 had 30 days to integrate 600 cameras. To help speed up the installation process, they had the equipment preconfigured, pre-racked and pre-cabled in an offsite facility. The River Rock facility was originally constructed for 1,100 cameras, but Gilroy and Bayrock wired it for 2,500 cameras, leaving room for expansion.

  • Asset Health Management (AHM)
    Asset Health Management refers to the process of analyzing the health of an asset as determined by operational requirements. The health of an asset in itself relates to the asset's utility, its need to be replaced, and its need for maintenance. It can be broken down into three key components: 1) Monitoring: Tracking the current operating status of the asset. 2) Diagnostic Analysis: Comparing real-time data to historical data in order to detect anomalies. 3) Prognostic Analysis: Identifying and prioritizing specific actions to maximize the remaining useful life of the asset based on analysis of real-time and historical data.
