High-end residential CCTV project: Protecting a large stately home with IP security cameras

This customer, the owner of a prestigious property in West Berkshire, contacted Safeguard Security Systems to upgrade their CCTV cameras and infrastructure. The current CCTV system had become unreliable and was beginning to fail. They wanted to upgrade the cameras to the latest technology and for us to install a new network/data infrastructure across the site so to future-proof the system.

The customer wanted new cameras in the existing locations and 4 additional cameras added to the system in new locations. The upgraded cameras provided superior images and the new cameras increased security in areas they felt lacked coverage and left them vulnerable.

Technical audit & full CCTV system upgrade: Securing property and protecting people

Following a site survey and several customer meetings, we submitted a proposal and quotation for the client to review. The new CCTV cameras needed to be a minimum of 1080p HD and the customer needed to have full control and monitoring capability via their security office and in the main house.

The customer had a couple of incredibly important technical and design requirements. Due to where the property is situated, the cameras had to supply crystal clear images in low-light. Furthermore, the property in question is a beautiful stately home, so we had to be considerate when selecting cameras that would blend into the aesthetic of the property and its surroundings.

Furthermore, new CCTV poles were installed in new camera positions around the gardens.

The Outcome: Crystal clear CCTV footage with IP (PoE) security cameras. Assets and family protected.

With security for the family and property in mind, the new upgraded system provides complete crystal clear coverage around the property. The old failing system left them vulnerable to thieves and intruders by delivering poor images at best and no images at worst.

Upon handover, the customer was fully trained on the use of the system.

I needed to upgrade the CCTV system at my premises after a series of attempted break-ins. My site is a rural location with a lot of outbuildings.
After being caught short In the installation of my original system with regards to the standard of install and the cost I carried out a bit of research into what system would be best for my site so I had some kind of idea before contacting professionals for quotes. The end product was far superior to what my original idea of what I wanted was and their installation was low-key and unobtrusive.

I chose Safeguard in Swindon recently to retrofit a Victorian cottage with CCTV - no small job owing to the construction of the building. I was very impressed with the skill with which the techs installed the necessary cable runs, once finished their work was almost invisible! The quite advanced pro-grade camera system has required a certain amount of follow up support to train me how to use it properly and I have found them to be patient and very helpful...as was necessary.

I couldn't be happier with the team at Safeguard Systems. I've worked with them on several projects before and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a quality security system installation. Our client, a high-end hair salon required a full studio design and fit-out along with a highly effective CCTV system to help protect and watch over their premises.

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system because i can access the cameras on my phone from anywhere which is a big help, and I've had no reliability issues either. Steve and Chris were very nice and professional. Will be using them again to extend the compound shortly.

I got in touch with Safeguard Systems to help secure our warehouse unit with an intruder alarm and CCTV system. They were incredibly helpful and came out to conduct a survey on our premises when others just wanted to provide a quote over the phone.
