Bespoke surveillance system from Axis provides safety reassurance

Careers and support services organisation provides secure environment for staff and visitors

“When I was first shown the Lightfinder technology it was mind-blowing. The images are amazing – light years ahead of our previous system.” Paul Wooding, information systems manager, Positive Steps.


When not-for-profit organisation Positive Steps moved to new premises in Oldham town centre, they faced a number of challenges updating the old 1970s building. The organisation inherited an analogue CCTV system which was becoming increasingly unreliable and was purely used retrospectively following any incident. After a number of years working with the 15-year-old surveillance system, it was clear that an improved set-up needed to be considered in order to enhance the environment for both staff and the general public using the facility.


After some research into the surveillance market, Positive Steps identified Axis Communications as its preferred supplier. Locally-based Axis-recommended partner, NW Systems Group, was approached to provide its expert opinion on what improvements could be made. The solution comprised 14 Axis cameras. Internally, the discreet AXIS M32 Network Camera provides excellent image quality, powered over Ethernet. While externally, AXIS P3364-LVE and AXIS P1354-E Network Cameras ensure high performance and are vandal resistant. All the outdoor cameras feature Axis’ innovative Lightfinder technology, giving them extreme light sensitivity.


The Axis system, specified and installed by NW Systems, has provided Positive Steps with a reliable, high-quality, advanced surveillance system that can be accessed and monitored 24x7 both on and off-site. It provides all the staff at this public-facing organisation with a safe and secure environment for their team and the customers using the on-site services.
