Founded in 2002, Penabur Gading Serpong is a complete school of junior and senior high in Indonesia with visions to provide student a balanced formation between general discipline education and character education.
Penabur Gading Serpong School had been searching for a surveillance solution to prevent campus crimes and violence, reduce school from theft attempts, and protect the lives of the faculty and students. Besides of campus security, they also hope to record the activities in the class for their reference to improve the teaching & learning quality. PT Elsiscom Prima Karya, Brickcom’s partner in Indonesia, thus helped the school deploy an IP surveillance system with Brickcom’s megapixel cube network cameras so that the school can benefit from the remote monitoring and reinforce campus security.

A total around 100 Brickcom cube network cameras, including CB-100Ae and CB-100Ap were installed in different building for both junior high and senior high schools in the Penabur Gading Serpong campus. In this solution, the installer set D-link DES-1025 switch hub at every 2 floors, so the CB-100A Cube cameras can connect to the nearest switch for the data transmission. The 1000Mbps ports of the switch are used for uplink ports, delivering 1Gbps data connection to the PC, in the control center, which with Brickcom BRC-64 NVR installed. The Brickcom BRC64 is an advanced PC-based NVR that allows users to manage up to 64 Brickcom IP cameras for live viewing and video recording. With the support of Mega-pixel resolution and H.264 compression, it uses less bandwidth while offering the optimal image viewing and recording quality. With the help of the Brickcom BRC64 and its IP cameras, users can quickly build a secure IP surveillance system.
Apart from the network cameras installed in the buildings, Brickcom also provided network video servers (VS-01A) to combine their old analog cameras in the parking area to the control center. With this combination of network and analog surveillance system, Brickcom enhanced the central management of the security monitoring.

The Megapixel IP cameras provide a much clear image quality for the detail monitoring. The CB-100A series cube network cameras support audio recording function, the administrator can observe the activities in the classroom and keep improving their teaching. The IP based system allows the future scalability and easier management for the administrator. In this case, all Brickcom CB-100A cube series cameras were connected to nearest switch hub, and use PoE (Power over Ethernet) function to transmit data and power through the same Ethernet cable. This function minimized the installation cost because the installer only had to pull few main cables from the switch to the PC with BRC-64 NVR. Moreover, with the VS-01A video server, the customer can keep their old analog cameras, and migrate to IP infrastructure in an easy and cost effective way.
