A plan of the building and grounds was drawn up with a risk assessment of the whole site. We revisited the client with options of several different technologies to illustrate the levels of security the system could achieve. Despite the complex benefits the final proposal included, we made sure the system was really user-friendly and that it would be super-reliable for the customer’s peace-of-mind. In assessing the proposal, the following key issues were identified:
R&S Security specified a state-of-the-art CCTV system using Pan-Tilt-Zoom dome cameras with night vision linked to laser beams surrounding the full perimeter of the site and triggering digital recording with offsite 24-hour monitoring. We also integrated an intelligent burglar alarm system covering the main house and its surrounding buildings.
The external detection was built for stability and reliability and consists of 12 sets of external quad beams. These are sited in two-metre towers with heater units for frost-free reliability, strategically placed around the perimeter of the site which provide an early response of an unauthorised perimeter entry. The beams integrate into the intruder alarm and the CCTV and if triggered, a voice audio warning alert is sounded from the area that has been breached. This also directs the appropriate camera to zoom and focus on the intrusion, and the system alerts the emergency monitoring station of the unauthorised intruder. To power the connectivity of this system, we sourced a supplier to fit point-to-point broadband, installing a small dish on the side of the premises which gave the customer 80Mbps upload and 10Mbps download speed to ensure an instant response of his alarm system.
An extremely satisfied customer who feels safe and secure that the system works well and gives him peace of mind when they are at home or away.
