HIGH-SECURITY CCTV CAMERAS FOR ARAB PRESS HOUSE, LONDON.

HIGH-SECURITY CCTV CAMERAS FOR ARAB PRESS HOUSE, LONDON.

About This Project 

 

What was the problem?
HH Saudi Research and Marketing’s headquarters is in Arab Press House, a large multi-storey high-end office building in central London. As a publishing house / media business producing the top 10 most popular Arabic newspapers and magazines in the world, the company and its staff are at risk from extremist groups and terrorist attacks.
Preventing the theft of private confidential data and monitoring the staff in the building were also priorities for the company. The challenge posed on this site was that we needed to cover every entry and exit, hallway, stairs and all lobbies with ID-capable CCTV recording and offer 12 months HDD backup.
What security devices did you install?
We based the system on the Samsung range of day and night 700 TVL WDR internal dome cameras (with Pelco 600 TVL day and night external pan/tilt and zoom cameras). This enables high-quality overview and identification of images as well as providing on-site manned guards with movable, zoom-able cameras to patrol the external areas of the site. As the company wanted to store images for 12 months we used three of our in-house select HD net-pro digital video recorders with built in DVD burner and USB back up. These also have quick search features and remote viewing as standard. We backed these up to a 36TB hard drive system to enable 12 months recording on all 48 cameras.
What challenges did you face in installing the system(s)?
Our major challenge was carrying out the works while the company was trading – We had to be careful not to impact on the daily work of staff, some of whom were working to tight newspaper deadlines (we also had to be careful because some of the company’s work is also confidential). To cause as little disruption as possible we used a super rod cable routing system to help us run the many cables needed above ceilings, behind walls in voids and below floors.
The super rod system helped us to run cables with very little mess and disruption and in many areas no redecorating was needed – This was quite a feat considering the amount of work involved.
Any other work carried out?
We provided a remote monitoring station in the reception area away from the main security office to enable other trained members of staff to operate a more limited amount of the CCTV system’s features.

Notes / Feedback

The end result was a great success and the company has now enrolled us to look after its access control, fire alarms and automated systems.

Head of security, Abdus Salek, said: “Select has been excellent from the start, our incumbent security company felt the installation could not be done without major works and disruption which is why we put the project out to tender.
“Select provided the best price vs quality and provided a demo of the equipment first (it was the only company to offer this). The system went in on time and on budget and has been very reliable and a huge asset in protecting our staff and assets.
“If you are thinking about having a large system and are worried about the disruption it will cause your business then talk to Select first, I can’t recommend them enough.”
