Norman Lowell Gallery – Anchor Point, Alaska
This project is unique in that it is in Anchor Point, Alaska! You might ask how a N.E. Ohio Security Integrator came to design and install CCTV and Security/Fire Systems in Alaska? Our owner, Michael Pope, met Norman Lowell while touring his gallery during a fishing trip to Homer, Alaska. Norman homesteaded his property and has been painting beautiful Alaskan landscapes for over 50 years.
Over the course of several years, Michael became not only a big fan of Norman’s work but they also became friends. As a friend, Michael was very concerned that Norman’s life work was located in a building that had neither security nor fire protection in it. After mentioning his concerns to Norman, it was agreed that Safety Technologies would design and install an integrated fire & security system on the next year’s trip.
Safety Technologies designed the system in the months preceding the June trip. In June, Michael, Dan Sexton, V.P. of Operations, and a select crew of technicians installed a comprehensive CCTV Surveillance, Security, and Fire alarm system. Bonus…everyone also brought back some of the best fish on the planet…and art work!

Bolingbrook Mall – Chicago, IL
The Promenade Bolingbrook is a unique outdoor shopping and dinning destination with over 65 shops and restaurants. The Promenade is known as the downtown of Bolingbrook with store front parking and quaint streets to stroll upon. The center is anchored by Macy’s, Bass Pro Shops, Barnes & Noble and Gold Class Cinemas. Safety Technologies was retained to design, project manage, and install the CCTV & Access Control systems for this project. The scope of the project entailed complete CCTV surveillance for the indoor common areas and exterior parking and entrances for this urban shopping center. Our Access Control system secures the employee areas of the facility. We also provided design and wiring capabilities for a future Emergency Duress System to be installed in the parking garages.
The design of this state-of-the art system does not require a manned 24/7 control center eliminating the need for an elaborate console. The camera system can be viewed from authorized computers via the internet.
This project encompassed expanding an existing CCTV Camera system at their main Cleveland facility on Darrow Road. Our project’s Scope included adding 48 new cameras and a 128 Channel DVR. One of the primary goals of this project was to clean up the previous equipment rack and wiring installation to conform to Safety Technologies’ installation standards. Through great planning and execution, we were able to expand the system, re-work the equipment racks, and install a new Video Recording solution with minimal downtime for the existing system.
“Michael and his company are top-notch professionals and they are incredibly knowledgeable in their field. I would use them again and definitely recommend Michael to anyone looking for A/V or CCTV services and products.” – Walt Pawlak, Facility Manager, Rockwell Automation
The Avenue at Tower City Center
Tower City Center is located in the heart of downtown Cleveland. The retail center houses three levels of shops and eateries, as well as fine restaurants and two world-class hotels. It is connected via a pedestrian walkway to Quicken Loans Arena, home of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians. This project was one of our most ambitious CCTV Surveillance System installations. The existing system was over 13 years old and had been added onto by numerous vendors over the years. The Command Center was the scene of a “rats nest” of wiring piled behind a wood and Formica console. The existing system consisted of several local Digital Video Recorders located throughout the facility’s various buildings. The first assignment for Safety Technologies was to create a System Design for the new CCTV System. The new system design utilized a state-of-the-art Networked Video Storage system effectively securing all recorded data in the Command Center. Additionally, all cameras and data can be viewed by authorized personnel from their computers. The toughest challenge involved replacing the Command Center Console while leaving their CCTV system operational as much as possible. Our team of talented technicians literally removed sections of the old console piece by piece with a saws-all! Mission accomplished.

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections
Safety Technologies was selected as the sole provider for Personal Duress Systems for the Adult Prison facilities located in the state of Ohio. The project involved the design, installation, and service of SpiderAlert Man-down systems for 30 institutions, spanning 10 years and more than $25M. Safety Technologies originally won the contract over numerous competing manufacturers and contractors. Our high installation standards, exceptional service, and ability to manage large scale projects in a prison environment resulted in our sole provider status. The scope of these projects called for the installation of a Visonic SpiderAlert System, capable of identifying a corrections officer or staff member’s identity and exact location within the institution when their Personal Emergency transmitter is activated. The next phase of the project called for the installation of solar-powered SpiderAlert Receivers in the outdoor yard areas.
Our success is best stated by this excerpt from a reference letter written by the Project Manager for the project:
“We are extremely pleased with the Spider Alert System as evidenced by our decision to install them in all of our Adult Prisons. The system has provided the protection for our staff as designed and has proven to be very dependable in operation. Technologies has demonstrated their commitment to quality installation standards and professionalism in everything they do. Their craftsmanship in the wiring installation is as good as I have seen. They start and finish all of their projects on schedule, keeping their crews on the job until complete. In my capacity as Project Manager, I have never had to fail a final inspection on any of their installations. When problems do arise, Safety Technologies has responded with a “whatever it takes” attitude to make it right.” – Robert Patterson, Project Manager
