Surveillance camera system for a school - the project background

Safeguard Systems were approached by a school to provide a quotation and system design proposal for a CCTV and ANPR camera system

The school needed to improve external monitoring of its site to spot a range of security threats.

Furthermore, they needed a system to control access to its car parks and to detect and track numbers plates approaching its grounds.

Safeguard has worked with many schools in the past. Therefore, we were confident the proposed solution would reflect the school’s budgetary and system requirements.

The proposed solution: CCTV and ANPR camera system

After an initial meeting, Safeguard Systems had a surveyor attend site to understand the client’s full requirements.

To protect the site from general security threats, we proposed a system comprising of multiple high-resolution IP security cameras to monitor key external areas.

Furthermore, ANPR cameras were recommended as a hybrid access control and CCTV solution to detect suspicious vehicles.

Once logged in the system, if the system detected the number plate, an alarm signal would be sent to the school’s internal CCTV monitoring station




School CCTV & ANPR camera system - project outcome

The system was installed out of hours to minimise disruption to the day-to-day running of the schools.

As experienced school security specialists, our DBS checked CCTV installers are used to working around the needs of schools, their staff, and key considerations around safeguarding, and health and safety.

This school is now protected from general threats, creating peace of mind for staff, parents and stakeholders.

The school’s access points are now secure, with a system primed to detect and notify the security team of known suspicious vehicles approaching its site.

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.
