Carter Group were thrilled to be instructed to undertake the Security upgrade works which consisted of CCTV, Access Control and Perimeter Fence Alarm.
Security is vital to the key operations of any business when protecting staff and preventing unwanted visitors so it is important to continue to review the performance of existing systems. Our team consisting of Project Manager and installation team worked closely with the client to understand requirements and provide key recommendations to upgrade the current systems using new technology to improve performance with a cost effect solution. The existing analogue CCTV System was replaced with a new IP CCTV system utilizing the existing cabling infrastructure. Additional doors were added to the access control system providing ultimate control over access to new secured and vulnerable areas. Finally, the existing analogue perimeter fence alarm was upgraded to a digital system with CCTV integration to the onsite control room using the latest technology to achieve the evolving business needs.
