Stanley upgrades CCTV system for London school


Brentford School for Girls in the London Borough of Hounslow has upgraded its CCTV system with Stanley Security Solutions as part of its on-going review of facilities.

The only Media Arts School in Hounslow and one of the highest achieving schools for A*-C passes in the Borough, Brentford School for Girls features a new state-of-the-art studio theatre and The Heart, home to a library and super learning centre, TV studio, radio station and iMac suite.

Existing on site security to protect both people and property was based around a traditional analogue CCTV system that was reaching the end of its working life.  The school wanted to upgrade to an IP based system, using existing compatible equipment where possible.

Having won the tender for the contract based on its competitive price and service offering, Stanley Security has now installed a High Definition IP based CCTV system internally and externally, which runs across the schools existing IT network.  The system consists of 14 external bullet cameras with built in infrared, eight internal vandal proof mini dome cameras with built in infrared and three encoders to integrate the existing three gate cameras.  The cameras are recorded on two 16 channel network video recorders with nine terabytes of recording space on each.

The new system provides the school with higher quality images and greater flexibility and ease of use as the cameras can now be viewed by approved staff members on authorised PCs throughout the school.

A particularly challenging requirement of the installation work was that it be carried out during a short mid-term break for health and safety reasons.  With correct specification and planning, Stanley Security ensured all work on site was easily carried out by its experienced engineers within the week long time allotted.
