Case Study: The City Academy in Hackney
All Security Solutions Appointed to Upgrade City Academy Hackney’s CCTV System
The City Academy in Hackney is a secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in the Homerton area of Hackney. The school was opened in 2009 and is sponsored by the City of London Corporation and KPMG. City Academy Hackney specialises in business and financial services, alongside the full range of subjects that are found in all state schools across the country.
Upgrading Hackney City Academy’s CCTV System
All Security Solutions were contacted by The City Academy to undertake an upgrade to the CCTV system. The school was built in 2009 with all-new modern features and equipment, however the CCTV and security equipment that was in place was very poor and unusable for the staff. The team at the academy experienced trouble when it came to operating the CCTV system, playing back incidents, using the software online and the system was continuously crashing.
With these concerns in hand, All Security Solutions created a bespoke CCTV system to eliminate the previous troubles that the team experienced. We undertook the project with these 3 main factors in place while providing a state-of-the-art HD IP PoE CCTV system. We provided a very user-friendly HD solution which saved the school 50% in costs, compared to alternative CCTV companies in the area.
The school CCTV system upgrade was completed in phases, which worked very well with pricing for the school. Thanks to the project being completed in phases, we have the ability to install additional cameras into the school in the future, should the school require this. The NVR system which has been specified by All Security Solutions is a futureproof system which comes highly recommended in the security industry.
The Importance of CCTV in Schools
There are so many reasons as to why CCTV for schools is so important, such as bullying, theft, trespassers and arson. CCTV systems are a convenient safeguarding method and when used correctly, ensure staff, pupils and visitors are safe and looked after at all times.
A professional surveillance system will help to monitor any internal or external incidents in the school, with the footage made available for the Headteacher or a senior member of staff to view. It also acts as a deterrent to troublemakers and bullies too, making them aware that they are being monitored at all times. CCTV systems for schools will also give parents and visitors peace of mind that the CCTV system is there to help and not hinder.
