Axis cameras deliver total perimeter security at expanding Lady Eleanor Holles School

AXIS P3365-VE 2-megapixel day/night dome cameras with Lightfinder deployed externally to secure gates and doorways around-the-clock

“It is great to achieve our long-term goal of 100% perimeter security. These Axis cameras selected proved ideal for delivering HD quality images both inside all school buildings, around those buildings and at our gates. Axis’ open architecture has enabled us to integrate with existing gate controllers and an ANPR client to match staff number plates with our vehicle database records. Integration with Milestone XProtect gives our receptionist the ability to check visitors buzzing through on the door intercom and let them in once visual checks have been carried out. The result is that we’ve had no costly breaches of security during construction or incidents of theft since the new cameras were installed.” Umesh Chapaneri, Head of Technical Support Services, Lady Eleanor Holles School.


The Lady Eleanor Holles School in the UK recently completed a major expansion and refurbishment building project. New art, drama and music centres in addition to a 300-seater theatre have been built; while all classrooms and the dining hall have been modernised. During the three-year building programme, the school needed to tighten security to prevent unauthorised site access and theft of building materials, especially as the school had previous experience of bicycle and computer equipment theft. Additional coverage was needed to cover the new building’s entrances, fire exits, ICT suites, as well as all school access gates.


A total of 22 new Axis cameras were networked by Axis partner Kent CCTV & Data Limited to cover all of the new building’s entrances and exits and gate nearest to the new building. Cameras were fitted to cover the new building’s entrances, fire exits and areas where expensive equipment was located. AXIS P3365-V Dome Network Cameras were deployed inside; while AXIS P3365-VE weather resistant, vandal-proof, 2-megapixel dome cameras were positioned outside the new building’s entrances covering car parks to the front and playing fields to the rear. This camera was also installed on the gate post and atop a 10-foot high CCTV pole to cover the vehicular and pedestrian gates nearest to the new building.


The school now has 100% perimeter protection having deployed a total of 64 Axis cameras and ANPR analytics covering all gates. Cameras cover public areas and corridors within buildings - both inside and out. By linking all cameras to Milestone XProtect® 2014 it has been possible to provide the school’s receptionist with close-up views of all vehicles and pedestrians requesting access during school hours. Gates can also be released directly from digital buttons located at the top right-hand side of the relevant live image displayed on-screen. Cameras are also now viewable remotely outside normal school hours via Milestone Mobile, by both the school’s caretaker and its head of technical support services.
