Comments Off on CCTV Systems in Aberdeen set to undergo £1.5 million upgrade programme

The CCTV systems in Aberdeen are set to undergo a massive a £1.5 million upgrade programme in an attempt to significantly reduce the level of crime in the city, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

Under the terms of the project, Aberdeen City Council’s cameras and those belonging to the police will be integrated into a single system.

The combined 600 cameras will be monitored and controlled at the council’s Marischal College headquarters, allowing staff to keep track of traffic and enhance public safety and security.

While some of the devices will be kept as they are, others will be replaced or upgraded or their position changed.

The council is also considering ways of improving communication between the two bodies when incidents are spotted on CCTV.

A spokeswoman added: “A lot of the current technology is analogue, and we’re looking to move to digital.”


One of the key elements enabling Stoke-on-Trent City Council to reduce security costs was remote monitoring.

At CCTV Surveillance, we can offer you this service. We have seen it save countless customers money just like the council due to less staff being needed on patrol and lower insurance costs.

The CCTV Surveillance monitoring centre is staffed 24/7 all year round by highly trained operators, all of whom share a passion for security. They can take immediate action on the video footage that they are alerted to, either by using the intercom link to warn away offenders or calling the police and specified keyholders.

Our top-range systems use the latest digital technology to provide real time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection. For further security and information gathering we can provide you with facial recognition software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition.

We provide several other security services as well as remote monitoring, such as our System Takeover, where we can take on the time and responsibility of running and maintaining your existing security system for you. All of our CCTV systems can also integrate with our access control systems. For example, this could allow the automatic opening or barring of doors if a certain person is picked up on the cameras.

If you are worried about the security of your premises, we can perform an in-depth assessment with a full spectrum penetration test which replicates real-life threats – everything from social engineering to lock picking and getting past alarms. We can also provide a smaller physical penetration-only test.

If you want to reduce security costs today, please contact us on or ring 01480 223955.
