Cameras provided by Hikvision and installed by integrator Holmes Security are improving security for INASMUCH, a men’s shelter in Fayetteville, N.C. that provides a wide range of services to the homeless community including food and job training.
The Hikvision security system was installed at the Lodge, a 40 bed shelter that INASMUCH opened in March 2017.
“The cameras work so well,” said Ray Helton, executive director at the Lodge. “More than 50 previously homeless men have gotten jobs in the past five months, and 23 men have moved to a better place. Many are improving themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. These cameras have helped in many ways.”
A press release about this installation can be found on the HIkvision website.
“Hikvision considers it a privilege to join product and service providers who, together, assisted the INASMUCH operation in establishing a strong video surveillance system,” said Jeffery He, president of Hikvision USA Inc. and Hikvision Canada Inc. “Hearing reports of how a secure environment has helped men begin to successfully move back to personal independence reinforces Hikvision’s commitment to supporting local communities, while providing high-value, reliable, and innovative security systems.”
