All campus and estate settings, whether that be for education, research, or for heritage (as for the National Trust) have similar needs. There are the security issues of a wider area to be addressed; the safety of staff as they meet their employment obligations and the protection of both the site itself and the assets on site.
A combination of conventional radio, as well as other technologies, can help to provide Lone Worker, Man Down, GPS Tracking for outdoor positioning, BlueTooth beacon technology for locating radios (and therefore people) for in-building use and wireless connection to phone systems and the outside world via other interfacing. Radios can also be off site to provide all round support and protection for staff on trips and excursions.
There’s additionally the prospect of automating part of the process; for security in particular and the process of differential access to both site and buildings; for different people at different times. Internal location beacons around the campus bring real-time coordinates and mapping for use inside buildings. When this is put together with external GPS device locations, it will allow for tracking of any device users.
Two-way communications with integration to alarm panels and coupled with CCTV and Artificial Intelligence provides the complete security and management package.
CCTV on campus is often used to provide a site wide solution for many different aspects. Coupled with artificial intelligence CCTV can monitor unusual patterns of access to a site, keep a tally of vehicles and track individuals across a site or sites.
We’ve worked with a wide range of businesses, governments and NGOs giving us a unique insight into the way different organisations communicate. Let us put that to work for you.
Usually many of us look forward to a walk around an idyllic stately home, reflecting on what life would have been like in days gone by.
Over at G6 we have been working with the National Trust to keep our heritage safe.
In times gone by the keys to the castle would have brought with them some weighty considerations; warding off invaders, managing the whole estate and keeping the peace.
Anglesey Abbey is not what it seems. It has no connection to the Isle of Anglesey, It's name is derived from the near by Hamlet of Anglehale. And it was never an Abbey - though it has been a Hospital and a Priory. The Fowkes family acquired the property in 1595 and converted what remained of the demolished priory into a Jacobean-style house you see today.
