The Panorama Towers condo project offers high-rise luxury living near the Strip.
It also offers high-level security with dozens of cameras, video-phones and fingerprint scanners.
The 33- and 34-story towers on Dean Martin Drive once had 23 cameras scattered around the place, with another eight in the elevators. Now, thanks to a new system by consultant Christian Petrou, there are 80 cameras, with at least three more on the way.
Petrou, hired in 2010 by the homeowners association board, also brought "biometric," or fingerprint, scanners to common areas such as the gym, parking garage and lobby.
But the towers don't rely solely on high-tech gadgets to keep things safe. There also are more than two dozen security personnel, who are led by Security Director River Polson, a 31-year-old former marine.
