Videofied 100% Wireless External Intruder Detection

Our Client

Bristol Caravan Storage business is responsible for storing valuable caravans and motorhomes in its newly-built storage compound. Not only are these valuable items but many have huge sentimental value for the customers (sometimes a whole lifetime’s worth of savings went into the purchase of them) so any loss or theft would be devastating to the business and its customers.

Notes & Feedback

Since we installed the system the storage firm has never had a single caravan or motor home go missing. This has helped the company build an excellent reputation for caravan storage security leading to increased word of mouth advertising. Now many extra caravans and motorhomes are being stored with the company. 

THE BRIEF

Only one system met the requirements – The RSI Videofied verified perimeter alarm system with built in CCTV that sends a 10 second video of the alarm activation to the chosen monitoring station and customer’s phone.

Overview

What was the problem?
Bristol Caravan Storage business is responsible for storing valuable caravans and motorhomes in its newly-built storage compound. Not only are these valuable items but many have huge sentimental value for the customers (sometimes a whole lifetime’s worth of savings went into the purchase of them) so any loss or theft would be devastating to the business and its customers.
 
What challenges did you face in installing the system?
The system needed to operate with no electricity or fixed telephone line, and provide CCTV, video and intruder alarm notifications instantly all with no wires.
 
What security devices did you install?
Only one system met the requirements – The RSI Videofied verified perimeter alarm system with built in CCTV that sends a 10 second video of the alarm activation to the chosen monitoring station and customer’s phone.
By sending a video of the incident that triggered the alarm the client determines whether it’s a false alarm (e.g. triggered by a bird, fox or blowing tree) and a real break-in, possibly someone scaling the fence to open the main gates. Once it’s clear a break-in is occurring an alarm can be raised on site and the police called to catch intruders red-handed.
We put a RSI Videofied detector every 15m around the site perimeter as well as using extra devices to cover the main entry areas.
As the system is totally wireless it only needs one engineer to install it (it was done in one day) keeping costs down to a minimum for the client.
 
Any other work carried out?
We also installed a simple shoot-bolt lock for the gate so that customers whose caravans are stored on the site could enter their code on the key pad to disarm the alarm and release the gate. This made the whole security process for caravan storage customers simpler.
