Axis cameras enhance security at primary school

Next generation CCTV system improves school security

“At Focus Fire & Security, our customers’ needs are our first and foremost concern. We focus on not only delivering an efficient installation service, but also matching our customers’ needs with highly effective best of breed systems. By identifying St Michael’s Catholic Primary School’s issues and challenges with its existing system, we were able to consider a range of alternative surveillance solutions to help overcome these. Axis was by far the best option for them; the quality and ease of installation of its feature-rich software is beyond comparison.“ Chris Clarke, Managing Director at Focus Fire & Security Ltd.


St. Michael’s Catholic Primary School, Liverpool needed to replace its existing, inflexible and slow analogue CCTV system with a more effective and robust IP-based surveillance solution that could be easily accessed remotely. The school had a limited budget, so needed a cost-effective, user-friendly solution that was easy to install and would provide high quality images that could clearly identify trespasser and thieves, and improve the safety of staff and pupils. The school also wanted a solution which was easy to control and could allow much faster access to archive footage.


Recognising the analogue CCTV system needed to change in order to meet its requirements, the school turned to Liverpool-based installer Focus Fire & Security who assisted by their security consultant Colin Leary, designed a system recommending the AXIS Camera Companion IP surveillance solution specifically designed for small systems of up to 16 network cameras. Using AXIS Camera Companion with Axis IP surveillance cameras allowed Focus Fire & Security to install the solution quickly, pain free and without disruption, take advantage of the very latest HDTV image quality, remote access and storage capabilities, as well as integrate in some of the schools existing analogue cameras.


The school now has a cost-effective, easy-to-use IP surveillance system that can be accessed remotely by authorised users via a PC, smartphone, or tablet. The system provides exceptional image quality and has been quick and easy to install. The cameras are delivering excellent footage and the speed in which archive material can be viewed has significantly increased giving a higher level of control over the school site security.
