Restaurant CCTV system: The project background

Safeguard Systems were approached by a prestigious London-based restaurant to review and upgrade its legacy CCTV system.

This restaurant needed to protect itself from employee theft, and vandalism and to offer its customers peace of mind.

Additionally, they needed an upgraded CCTV system to help spot incidents of general theft and accidents.

Safeguard has worked with this chain of independent restaurants for years. We are now their go-to security partner for CCTV, access control, and all-around security.

When designing a CCTV system for an upmarket restaurant, a key consideration is delivering a discreet installation.

The restaurant’s aesthetic and design is an important factor in its operations.

Therefore, camera selection, well hidden wiring, and positioning are key to a quality CCTV installation.

The proposed solution: Discreet IP network CCTV cameras providing full internal coverage

After an initial meeting and site survey, Safeguard Systems produced a detailed system design proposal.

To protect the site from the aforementioned security threats, we proposed a system comprising 10 high-res network security cameras.

Through carefully selected camera positioning, all internal areas in the restaurant are covered including:

  • Till points
  • The terrace
  • Dining area

This restaurant has a reputation to uphold and attracts a wealthy clientele.

Discreetly fitted dome and turret cameras were paramount to maintaining the stylish aesthetic of this beautifully designed restaurant.




Restaurant CCTV - project outcome

The upgraded CCTV system was installed over two days and outside of peak hours. This ensured there was no operational interruption to this business.

This restaurant is now protected against a range of threats, and operational headaches.

The upgraded CCTV system has the capacity for additional cameras. New cameras can be easily added to its current IP infrastructure.

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 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.
