The new five star Radisson Blu Resort & Congress Centre in Sochi relies on Bosch when it comes to security. The luxury resort, which celebrated its grand opening in time for the biggest event ever held in Sochi, is equipped with Bosch fire alarm systems, public address and evacuation technology and a comprehensive video surveillance system, all being integrated and centrally managed via the Bosch Building Integration System (BIS).
Being located close to the Black Sea coast, the Radisson Blu Resort & Congress Centre features more than 500 guest rooms, three restaurants, a health club & SPA and other amenities. With eleven conference rooms including the 1,500 m² Premier Hall, the Radisson Blu also features one of the largest hotel-attached convention centres in southern Russia.
As the different parts of the building also have different safety requirements, Krasnoda based installer LLC Computer-svyaz therefore designed a networked solution with eleven independent fire panels and more than 8,000 fire detectors, all being managed as one integrated system. The Bosch fire alarm system tightly interacts with the Bosch public address system Praesideo to ensure a fast evacuation in case of need. The Bosch video surveillance solution consists of almost 300 IP cameras managed by the Bosch Video Management System. Bosch Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) is used to reliably detect critical situations and to reduce the expenditure of human labor.
“Safety and security are very obviously prime issues in Sochi these days”, said Christoph Hampe, head of Country Sales Organization Russia at Bosch Security Systems. “However, Radisson Blu looked much further. They wanted a security solution for the long term and therefore decided to install an integrated and highly scalable security system based on open standards. This will enable them to easily expand and modify the existing solution whenever the need arises, protecting the initial investment even when requirements change.”
