Background

Sir George Monoux College was formed almost 500 years ago and is a specialist sixth form college for students who want to progress towards higher education and skilled employment.

Challenge

The existing systems in place at the college were outdated and in need of a full upgrade. The system also needed to be linked to the college’s current HR and student MIS system, all of which was required to be completed within a tight 3-month deadline, ready for the start of the new college term.

Solution

In order to meet the deadlines set out by the customer, several CVSS engineers worked through the night running network cabling for the new cameras and access control system. 220 4K ultra HD CCTV cameras were then installed, covering the whole of the college campus, all of which can be monitored from various dedicated control rooms within the grounds.

CVSS then installed an access control system consisting of 176 doors and a fully integrated visitor management system. This means that almost every classroom on campus is now covered.

4 high specification speed lanes were then installed in the college reception, allowing students to swipe in/out when entering/exiting campus. This is especially useful in the event of an emergency as student numbers can be monitored.

On the main entrance and exit to the college 2 vehicle barriers were installed with IP-based access control and ANPR technology and lastly, 1 high secure cantilever gate was fitted to secure the rear of the college.

Benefits

  • Increased safety for both staff and pupils.
  • Restrict unauthorised access to both classrooms and campus.
  • All systems linked to the staff HR and student MIS software for convenience.
