Council-run CCTV surveillance system in Flintshire to be monitored in Wrexham
Comments Off on Council-run CCTV surveillance system in Flintshire to be monitored in Wrexham
The council-run integrated CCTV surveillance camera system in Flintshire is set to be monitored from a facility in Wrexham following the approval of cost-cutting measures by both local authorities, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
There are currently 120 cameras installed in the county, all of which are monitored by staff at the Flintshire Council’s HQ in Mold.
However, as the council prepares to knock down the part of County Hall where the screens are based, officers have been looking at the possibility of relocating the service to Wrexham Council’s CCTV control room on Wrexham Industrial Estate.
While Flintshire will remain responsible for the costs of fibre connections and the maintenance and replacement of its cameras, the overall amount it spends is expected to reduce from almost £185,000 down to £141,000 per year.
Wrexham will now take responsibility for managing the joint system for both counties, but staff currently employed by Flintshire to monitor the system will be moved over to Wrexham, where new screens will be installed to show footage from the county.
CCTV Surveillance – experts in designing and deploying comprehensive surveillance solutions
CCTV Surveillance has a very comprehensive level of expertise in the field of security installations, delivering high-quality, bespoke installations, designed to perfectly match the customers’ needs.
One of the main features of our CCTV systems is that they are integrated to work with a standard PC monitor via sophisticated CCTV software that allows individual users to set their own criteria for viewing selected footage from particular CCTV cameras within the network. Password and security features limit the viewing of certain cameras to specific groups of people, enabling you to securely manage who is able to see particular areas of activity.
The CCTV software enables “live” footage to be viewed remotely from any or all connected CCTV cameras as events happen and without degradation of video quality, allowing you to monitor your premises when offsite.
Its site tree facility allows servers and individual cameras to be accessed quickly, and the inclusion of the multi-site viewing facility makes the management of sites more efficient and responses to events even quicker.
Remote management of your CCTV network via LAN, WAN, or the internet is also possible through the CCTV software. Historical footage can be viewed remotely, and DVR setup parameters can be configured.
