On Nov. 20, before the opening of ISC East, N.Y.-based integrator Total Recall Corp. along with nine vendor partners led a tour of the new security system and command center it designed and installed to secure the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Liberty Island.

The Statue of Liberty reopened to the public on July 4, 2013, following eight months of renovation and repairs due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. As part of the refurbishment, Total Recall reached out to the U.S. Park Police, National Park Service (NPS) and the Department of Interior (DOI) with a state-of-the-art surveillance system proposal that would be designed, installed and maintained as a donation by the company.

Jordan Heilweil, president of Total Recall worked closely with Captain Greg Norman of the U.S. Park Police and others to redesign the Statue’s surveillance and security system from top to bottom by bringing together nine technology vendors. Today’s IP-based, all-digital security solution enhances public safety and improves operational efficiencies.

In this new upgrade, total Recall and the technology team migrated the Statue from analog CCTV to the latest in digital video technology to enable the park to cover areas with high-quality video surveillance that they could not reach before. The team constructed an intelligent and ultramodern command center three times the size of the previous center to help the NPS and U.S. Park Police do their jobs more effectively.
