CCTV for large housing co-op

11 August 2011

Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS) has completed the CCTV upgrade for West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative in Glasgow - the UK's fifth largest.

Stanley CSS has been maintaining and providing ongoing technology upgrades to the Housing Co-operative's door entry and CCTV systems for nearly 15 years. This latest project includes extending the 26 external camera CCTV system to cover the internal back stairwells of the six multi storey blocks using 86 vandal resistant domes. Images are recorded using two DVR (digital video recording) systems in real time.

All images are fed back to a Stanley GDX5 concierge, which also controls the door entry system. Operated via touch screen PC for ease and manned by the Housing Co-operative 24 hours a day on site, the GDX5 provides full alarm reporting.

Stanley CSS also upgraded access to a further nine low rise blocks owned by the Housing Co-operative using GDX Indigo door entry system with integrated access control. Entry panels have been fitted to front and back doors.

The latest technology upgrades have provided improved security across the site, allowing for a quick response to any incidents.

Mags Brownlie, Assistant Director (Operations) at West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative is very pleased with the equipment in place: "We are always looking at ways to improve the security that will benefit tenants. The latest upgrade with cameras in the back stairs has been hugely successful; we've seen a reduction in vandalism and graffiti and improved security for tenants and staff alike. In the first few months of having the new cameras we had a few incidences that we were able to quickly and successfully deal with."
