Infra red CCTV cameras can deter thefts from remote sites like power substations
Comments Off on Infra red CCTV cameras can deter thefts from remote sites like power substations
Thieves stealing copper wiring from a power substation caused a power surge that resulted in at least 70 domestic fires in Bolton, Greater Manchester. This was the second theft of wiring from a United Utilities substation in Bolton in ten days, which left 400 homes without power. Televisions, DVD recorders, lights, fridges and freezers were mostly affected. There were small fires, smoke, smells of burning and overheating.
United Utilities said: "Substations are dangerous places and the person or persons involved put their lives at risk and also the lives of all local residents. In the light of the thefts we will have to go back and review our security procedures."
Protecting a remote site using better security is possible with cost effective evidence quality products from CCTV Surveillance Ltd, who look after industrial, commercial, and domestic CCTV installations on sites across the UK. We provide a massive range of security and surveillance CCTV camera products from the best manufacturers for indoor and outdoor environments, day and night shooting, and more.

By utilising infra red light these cameras ensure security and safety for your premises throughout any light conditions.
