HANGZHOU, CHINA/August 19, 2014 — Arabian Center, located in the southeastern Dubai, is a new shopping and entertainment destination for local residents. Sprawling over a total site area in excess of 80,000 square meters, Arabian Center is a home to 200 plus renowned retail stores, ranging from fashion lines to home furnishings, electronics and etc., LuLu Hypermarket and a cinema city are also stationed in the mall.
The security of the shopping center is given to high priority as its board intends to provide store owners a good business platform and renders costumers with a cozy and safe shopping experience, so how to fight against theft and tackle with emergencies in such a wide space remains as a question. Meanwhile, different spots have their own specific requests; for example, the condition in warehouses, entrances and exits are no way the same as other areas in the mall.
The shopping mall has basic requests of this project. First of all, the images have to be crisp and clear; second, the cameras need to be in-décor; last but not the least, the whole system shall be very stable and reliable. Dahua’s Megapixel IP solution standouts among other brands and offers a complete video solution, including megapixel network cameras, storage devices and central management system. 342 units of Dahua 2-Megapixel Eco-Savvy network cameras are applied, different models for different occasions.
Dahua’s network WDR functions uses in-house algorithm to show better image performance, especially for the weather in Dubai. The strong sunlight is all year round which makes WDR a must for the camera installation of entrances and exits. Low light cameras enable to provide clear pictures in darkness, which is therefore a good choice for warehouse monitoring as stocking is one of the key parts in logistics where thousands of goods are unloaded and tiled up in quite dim surroundings due to the strict environment requirements. Meanwhile, 3-Megapixel PTZ domes are adopted for a wider view to have a broader surveillance area in an efficient way. As for storage, 22 units of 32-channel network video recorders are adopted with 2TB seagate hard disks provided to guarantee large volume storage. The whole system runs on Dahua Smart PSS (CMS software) to have a central control and management.
"This is Dahua’s first high-end case in Dubai, and the mall board didn’t hold an open attitude to Chinese brand,” said Preetham Moras, Sales Manager of the Gulf Detection LLC, a local distributor. “They used to like some other Korean brands, what changed their mind is after a series and rigid testing of Dahua’s NVR. The great performance shows its stability and quality.”
"I have a faith in partnership with Dahua as their products are of very good performance and at an affordable price, which the market has a favor on,”Moras added.
"I was very excited when learning the news that our brand was finally chosen for Arabian Center as it is a big step for us,” said Steve Wang, Sales Manager for the Middle East at Dahua Technology. “This shows that Dahua’s branding is based on its product performance and quality and the branding is enhancing in the region.”
"Dubai is a land of promise and we see great security demanding from many sectors, such as retail, transportation, entertaining as well as there are so many ongoing construction projects. We do believe that this is just a beginning of our penetration to this market,” added Wang.
