The Challenge:

Pacific House Homeless Shelter Security Camera InstallationPacific House is a homeless shelter located in Lower Fairfield County in Connecticut. The organization has been around for over 30 years, providing food, emergency shelter, and support services for homeless men. Pacific House is a two-story residential building that also houses administrative offices. Typically, the shelter can accommodate 60-82 people, but it can accommodate up to 110 residents during extreme weather months.

The installation of security camera system was a local municipal request, and Total Security has to go through a formal proposal process. All specifications and requirements were detailed, and the proposal has to be vetted for compliance. The homeless shelter was looking for a security systems company that has previous experience and offers cost-effective solutions. There were at least 3 companies considered for the project.

Total Security submitted a comprehensive security plan and was awarded the contract because of the company’s expertise in the industry, years of experience, established strong reputation, and clear understanding of the shelter’s security needs.

During the installation process, it was a big challenge to perform the installation without disrupting the shelter’s day-to-day operation. The technicians needed to be extremely aware to not be in the way of the residents and make things convenient as possible.

The Solution & Unique Aspects Of The Installation:

After careful evaluation of the shelter’s security needs, Total Security installed, 4, 5, and 6-megapixel cameras. Pacific House wanted to install security cameras that will be able to positively identify people going in and out of the premises. High-resolution security cameras with excellent video quality were installed on the exterior of the building overlooking the front entrance, parking lot, and walkways, as well as in common indoor areas of both floors. Total Security made sure that all requirements laid out by RFP were followed.
