New CCTV monitoring centre set to open in Dundee
Comments Off on New CCTV monitoring centre set to open in Dundee
A new CCTV monitoring and control centre is set to open in Dundee in early December, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The £750,000 Safety and Alarm Response Centre (SARC) will be a round-the-clock service to keep city residents safe.
The base will allow Dundee City Council staff to respond to incidents more quickly by bringing footage from CCTV cameras – of which there are about 1,000 in the city – under one roof.
It will also respond to the council’s 6,000 residents who are supported by the community alarm service.
The centre, which will be housed at the West District Housing Office in Sinclair Street in Lochee, will also allow information to be passed between other agencies, including police, ambulance and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
The aim is to get to incidents more quickly, and in particular, alarm systems at sheltered housing complexes will be linked up to the SARC, allowing council officials and blue light services to respond faster.
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.
