Winsford 1-5 BID sought CCTV to secure the estate
Local connectivity was extremely slow and unreliable, making it impossible for the cameras to function.
The CCTV project could not be completed without significant increases in costs.
OneTek were already deploying super fast WIFI broadband across the estate
Following discussions, OneTek equipped each camera with a link to our super fast WIFI network.
The whole connectivity and footage recording platforms were redesigned to suit a large area deployment.
CCTV issues resolved – ANPR Added
The WIFI links provided more than enough bandwidth to the cameras, the system was live.
OneTek continued to engage with the community and established a need for Automatic Number Plate Recognition.
Two ANPR cameras were added and greatly increased the systems effectiveness.
THE FUTURE OF WINSFORDS SECURITY SYSTEMS
A project driven by a business community
Having a physical solution in place for CCTV & ANPR focussed the business leaders on the issue of estate security.
The system has become a forum for ongoing discussions about estate security. Regular meetings with stakeholders and suppliers continues to enhance the security of the entire estate.
Through those discussions, any weaknesses are planned out and replaced by the latest technology.
