IP based security system for London's Eltham Centre

Panasonic : 12 March, 2009  (Application Story)
London Community Facility adopts modern approach to integrated security with the installation of IP security system from Panasonic
Panasonic IP security has been installed at The Eltham Centre in South East London. The Eltham Centre provides first class integrated services for the local community including leisure, library, educational, community and council services to local residents. The innovative and attractive Centre was pioneered by Greenwich Council in 2007 as a way to modernise its services and bring the community together under one roof.

With its recent one year anniversary and the Centre now embedded into the local community, site security made the decision to look into the challenges they faced in making sure the staff, public and building are kept secure and safe.

Scott Parson was contracted on behalf of Greenwich Council to project manage the construction. Liaising with Scott, West London Security successfully won the tender to install the security using an IP Panasonic i-Pro system. Headed by George Rohan, whose 15 years of surveillance experience told him where system coverage would need to be placed as a priority, West London Security used their in-depth product knowledge to provide Scott with a technical solution that perfectly met the Centre's needs.

Since its installation, the system has proved its worth and has recently been used to identify an offender of persistent anti-social behaviour. The Centre's management worked closely with the local police to provide them with clear images of a site offender.

Using a structured cable Ethernet backbone, WLS were able to utilise IP technology to consolidate all the different systems including both surveillance and access control. In addition, Greenwich Council can reduce costs if further systems were to be added; another Centre is being built in Woolwich Arsenal and could potentially make full use of the IP system by linking the two surveillance systems together and having one central monitoring point.

With a forward thinking attitude and determination to continually improve services for its residents, Greenwich Borough Council is making full advantage of the benefits of IP Surveillance technology with the Eltham Centre.
