Case Studies

System Type: Access Control, CCTV and Intruder Alarm & Hold Up Systems

An International Personal Hygiene Company sought our assistance when implementing the streamlining of their logistics arrangements and rationalisation of its warehousing facilities.

Following the expansion of their business and purchase of a large warehouse building in close proximity to their manufacturing base, a major refurbishment project was undertaken. i2 Security had successfully installed a small Access Control system two years ago across two sites.  Due to this successful collaboration i2 Security were invited to design the electronic security measures.

Due to infrastructure limitations access to the building was restricted to three key entrances.  With a view to value engineering this aspect of the project it was agreed to connect these entrances via the Client’s LAN to the main Access Control System for ease of system management and cost effectiveness.

Some of the existing analogue CCTV cameras were tested and re-used for this project, with the addition of some new units. Once again consideration was made on ease of operation, cost, successful monitoring and future proofing.

Therefore all analogue camera signals were encoded to TCPIP, locally recorded onto a 1 terabyte network video recorder situated in the protected premises. Using the Client’s LAN the camera images and recorded footage can (with adequate permissions) be viewed at the main site by the Security Officer.

The IHAS was more challenging. Although there was an existing system installed a detailed survey revealed that this did not meet the current NACOSS/EN Standards (PD 6662: 2010. / BS8243:2010).

i2 Security undertook a detailed Risk Assessment and ascertained that there was a requirement for a Grade 3B system. Full perimeter protection was afforded with detection on all external doors, supported with internal dual technology and infra-red beam detection for confirmation.

Signalling is BT GSM Red, with internal and external AWD’s.
