Most County and District Councils are facing severe spending cuts and are often transferring the additional costs, or complete ownership of existing CCTV systems to local town councils. These councils are almost certainly making their own cutbacks and have no budget available for the management and maintenance of expensive CCTV facilities. Fortunately RedHand have an affordable, easy-to-use solution, designed to replace their legacy systems and meet their needs.
RedHand is an extremely cost effective CCTV system for Town Centres and can provide:
- Transmission of high definition video with no degradation in quality
irrespective of distance
- Advanced wireless networks that do not require BT line rentals
- A deterrent that can reduce the costs due to theft, vandalism
and anti-social behaviour
- Lower installation and operating costs
- A system that provides superb visual evidence when you need it
- A unique picture management facility that saves you valuable time
Our system works by creating a local area computer network (LAN) made up by a number of wireless devices. Wireless aerials can be attached high up on buildings or on lighting columns that are in any location that requires CCTV. Permission would have to be sought from property owners and planning consent would have to be obtained if any listed buildings are involved, but in our experience neither of these usually presents an obstacle.
From each roof top aerial, a feeder cable is brought down to a wireless point on the side of the building at camera level. Providing there is line of sight, this will receive signals from a number of cameras in the area. Cameras can be fixed to buildings or onto lamp posts. All they require is 240V power supply and they consume around 8 Watts. We have had considerable experience in dealing with the Highways Department concerning this aspect of the installation.
