Having completed the construction of a block of 36 flats in Cardiff. Bovis found that protecting the block with round the clock security was proving very costly. As the period could be running for several months before a buyer was found they instructed Ace Defence to install their MAC camera system to replace the guards. A number of cameras were placed on the periphery of the building, mounted on specially designed health and safety pallets. Additional cameras were also mounted inside the door entrances. The system is linked to a 24/7 monitoring centre. On activation staff set off a sounder and strobe light as well as a key holding company. They also call police on confirmation of intruders on site. The system protects Bovis against unwanted visitors such as squatters and thieves. Any squatters found entering the premises can be removed quickly as CCTV footage can show unlawful forced entry. As the system is wireless without the need for mains power it was installed quickly without the need for unsightly cables Providing rapid deployment and an ability to be relocated quickly and easily to new sites makes it ideal for protecting vacant properties.
