Rio Tinto Stadium
Rio Tinto stadium is home to the Real Salt Lake and the FC Royals national soccer teams. The venue can accommodate 20,000+ people for an event, to include suites and club seating. At the center of this is an enterprise security system. With 40+ cameras and access control in the form of badge readers and barcode scanners, Rio Tinto is secure.
DSI was presented with the issue on site that suite doors were being manned for entrance and people were still entering unauthorized. Together with DSI operations team and Rio Tinto’s head of security, a plan to implement barcode scanners on suite entrances came to light. Each ticket had a barcode already on it, so why not use that. With the correct system programming and hardware installation, this concept grew into reality. Not only do we secure suite entrances, but offices, building entrances, and locker rooms are secured with this system and badge readers. The Enterprise Avigilon door access system has been integrated across the board at the stadium and team stores.
At a venue the size of Rio Tinto, there are safety concerns that present alongside vandalism and theft. With a state of the art enterprise CCTV system, the number of incidents has been cut drastically down. The 40+ camera system covers the venue as well as the outlying team stores.
With these 2 systems in place, both being Avigilon, the integration between the 2 continues to grow. Knowing who is and has been where in the venue is a challenge without these systems. Analytics play a large role in this system to track and identify possible threats.
As Rio Tinto grows, so does the partnership we have formed with them.
