Upgraded surveillance makes inroads in UAE hotels

altMay 10 - Hotels across the UAE are spending a lot of money to upgrade their security surveillance systems in the aftermath of the assassination of the Hamas leader in Dubai this year, said an expert. "Working with the co-operation of the police, hotels in Dubai in particular are spending a lot on major upgrades of already extensive security systems, in some cases almost doubling the number of cameras," said Ray Tinston, Sales Director of The Hotel Show due to take place in Dubai from May 18-20.
The assassins who killed the Hamas leader Mahmoud al Mabhouh were caught on closed circuit television at a number of hotels in the hours leading up to the murder.
Meanwhile, the Hotel Show will be the 11th one this year and will highlight products, services and technologies for the hotel and catering industry. The event will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre later this month. "We know from a number of hotel operators that the scale of upgrade taking place since the Dubai incident is on a multi-million dirham basis with one new property alone reporting that it is virtually doubling the number of cameras it is installing to almost 200," Tinston added.
