Our Security Monitoring Station Guide is an introduction to selecting the right surveillance monitoring console furniture. In it, a number of people commented on challenges in using design software to lay out furniture.
In this note, we delve deeper into surveillance furniture design using downloadable design software provided by vendors in this space, including Middle Atlantic’s “Designer” and Winsted’s “WELS”.
The short intro video below overviews our approach:
Both Middle Atlantic’s and Winsted’s console furniture design software will allow the consultant or integrator to:
- Layout a custom console in a 3-dimensional environment and include accessories such as monitor mounts, internal racks and shelving, lighting and chairs.
- Export the layout as a *.jpg image or export it for use with CAD software in an AutoCAD *.dxf format.
- Prepare a complete bill of materials with MSRP pricing.
- Produce a CSI specification for the console furniture.
Inside, we provide two video screencast tutorials on how to best use these applications.
