Casino – Comprehensive Protection for Casinos

The Challenge

In casinos, discrete monitoring is crucial. Central control of all installed systems is realized via the System Manager. Ideal video integration is of great importance, for example, the personal data of the entrance cash registers are linked to the associated video images. The simultaneous repetition of recorded video sequences with integrated log data is indispensable for the use of the video archive. Since casinos have an extremely large amount of camera data, high risks as well as extensive regulations and incidents occur frequently, very complex security software is required for integration.

The Solution: WinGuard

The WinGuard casino solution realizes distributed control. Local control centers are set up in each casino and consolidated in a central control center. The security devices in the casinos form a multi-level system and detect all potential risks at an extremely early stage so that appropriate actions can be initiated. The combined control of all systems and management of data within the casino as well as the connection to the control center are established via highly secure networks using TCP/IP.

The Infrastructure – the decisive factor

As a basic principle, the main focus is on the safety of individuals, being mainly ensured by the security and building automation systems. At the same time, gambling areas and guests are protected by further systems in order to prevent unpleasant surprises.


The security equipment in the casinos forms a multi-level system that enables all potential sources of danger to be identified at an early stage and actions to be initiated.

  • Security and fault warning systems
  • Access control and CCTV
  • Event messages from gambling and cashier systems
  • Central administration of workflows

Open Integration platform

The interaction of a discrete and complex video system with the technical infrastructure of gambling tables and cashier systems is crucial. One of the most important basic principles for an early identification, fast resolution and later traceability of irregularities during gambling operation and within the casino workflows is the synchronized coordination of all systems. This is how even complex processes happening at several locations can be detected and linked.

The casino-specific modules and the perfectly integrated interfaces of the management platform solve this task with all necessary procedures and tracking possibilities, being simultaneously displayed in each casino as well as in the control center. Key factor for organizational flexibility and fast response is the mobile notification by the platform. Status information, notifications, messages and alarms are transferred to mobile devices, such as smart phones, via a push process in the casino network, for further evaluation and processing.

Despite the enormous data quantities, the high amount of stored video images remains manageable at all times due to the optimized operation and evaluation concept. Great importance is attached to the personal guest data. Therefore all data, especially the video recordings, are tamper-proof and can be used as reliable evidence at the same time.
