Axis IP cameras protect staff and students at the Lady Eleanor Holles School
Future-proof next generation CCTV system improves school security and on-site safety of staff and pupils
“We are absolutely delighted with our next generation CCTV solution which is already delivering a host of benefits. The image quality is far superior than that of our previous analog system and staff feel confident that if needed, footage could be used to identify trespassers or other criminals.“ Umesh Chapaneri, Acting Head of Technical Support Services, Lady Eleanor Holles School.
The Lady Eleanor Holles School in the UK needed to replace its existing analog CCTV with a more effective IP surveillance solution. The school wanted a cost-effective, user-friendly solution that was easy to install and could provide exceptional image quality to facilitate the identification of trespassers and thieves and improve the on-site safety of staff and pupils. They also wanted something that could be added to their large expanding computer network, utilizing virtualization for the recording server.
The school chose an IP-based surveillance system containing 42 HDTV Axis network cameras. These cameras provided exceptional image quality and were powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce installation costs. Kent CCTV & Data Limited was selected to install the system and used Milestone XProtect® Enterprise, an open platform IP video management software for multisite and server deployments.
The school now has a cost effective, easy-to-use IP surveillance system that provides exceptional image quality. This highly scalable solution was quick and easy to install. The cameras are delivering excellent footage which can be readily accessed and shared across the network. Already, footage from the new system has been used by the police to identify and prosecute a trespasser who had broken into a neighboring school.
