Critical Infrastructure Providers Install CCTV in New Revamp

Comments Off on Critical Infrastructure Providers Install CCTV in New Revamp

In a recent security revamp, the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) installed various access control systems (including smart card access control and electromagnetic locks) as well as access control software, to improve on-site security across a variety of the 207 lighthouses that they govern.

Included in this security revamp was the installation of over 30 CCTV cameras across two NLB sites, Edinburgh and Orkney. In 2017, Mr. Dunn, Technical Systems Manager at Northern Lighthouse Board, decided that NLB required a new access control and CCTV system to bolster security for the Scottish critical infrastructure providers. 

Mr. Dunn recently described the CCTV system as “head and shoulders above anything else”. He also explained that his decision to upgrade the security system and replace the old one was a “no-brainer”. 

CCTV surveillance for all business types

CCTV surveillance has the ability to improve the security levels of any business in any stretch of the UK. With a CCTV system that monitors your site 24/7, you can rest assured that your business is in safe hands. Not only does CCTV surveillance give business owners the peace of mind that their site is secure, but also acts as a deterrent to any unwanted visitors. Our experts will help you decipher which CCTV system best suits your business requirements, whether it may be regular CCTV surveillance, facial recognition CCTV, mobile facial recognition systems or automatic number plate recognition (ANPR).  

Facial recognition CCTV for your business

Facial recognition CCTV is designed specifically for fast, discrete identification and/or registration of known/unknown individuals, whether in a large crowd at a stadium, festival or in other crowded public places. It also allows administrators to create whitelists and blacklists for specific areas or entrances of a building or room. Employees can be easily and quickly enrolled from one or more photographs and/or video clips. 

Site security with Automatic Number Plate Recognition

As an additional measure, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a highly accurate system that uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to precisely identify information on a number plate. After identification, ANPR systems can log the date, time and location of the vehicle and carry out actions based on the data. Whilst ANPR is commonly associated with law enforcement use such as identifying speeding offences and spotting stolen vehicles, the system has many applications designed for private use.
