We understand the need to integrate any security solution carefully into the fabric of a historical building to ensure it is not damaged or visually compromised. Our engineers and designers work closely with site staff to ensure all preservation issues are addressed.

We offer intelligent solutions to protect contents, making sure visitors can enjoy a site, but not remove any items.

Our historical site security solutions include:

  • IP CCTV – internal and external and in any colour or finish
  • Video management systems - to identify removed and moved items using change of scene technology, loitering, people counting, facial recognition so known individuals can be barred, people tracking and much more.
  • ALPR – Automatic License Plate Recognition
  • Physical boundaries - including gates, automatic barriers, fences and PIRs
  • Entry systems
  • Remote and multi-site monitoring
  • Intruder detection
  • Evidential-level recording
