Integrated wireless security for agricultural company

Tag Guard : 02 July, 2008  (Application Story)
Tag Guard provides perimeter security system integrated with camera surveillance and access control over wireless network at Keyo Agricultural Services
Can a wireless security system be used to provide a total solution to a company's security needs? The affirmative answer can now be seen at Keyo Agricultural Services' new premises in North Lincolnshire. The company approached Tag Guard looking for a complete perimeter security and CCTV system integrated with gates, barriers and access control. And the whole system has been provided from the range of wireless security products developed by Tag Guard.

Keyo Agricultural were looking for a very high level of security but wanted the system operational within a short time frame and to avoid the ground works and potential disruption that a cable linked system would necessitate.

The perimeter security uses TagAlarm IR70's infra red detectors in a zoned system to avoid false alarms. Access to the premises is by motorised gates using key fob access control with a similar security access system for the entrance to the offices and other key areas such as the computer suite.

Visitors and unauthorised personnel use an intercom system to talk to the office staff, identify themselves and gain admission. And it's no ordinary intercom - it operates on GSM so a call to the office from the intercom is routed by GSM to the switchboard and when a visitor is identified the barrier/gate can be opened by pressing the hash key on the telephone.

The entire site is also covered by TagCam wireless CCTV linked to recording and monitoring equipment in the office area and also via broadband to Tag Guard's own 24-hour control room.

Mark van den Bos of Keyo Agricultural Services comments, "We were looking for a high level of security for our new premises and wanted the system operational within a short time frame, ideally with the minimum of disruption.

"I had not realised that wireless systems could do everything that cable-linked systems do but with a much quicker installation time and the benefit of minimal groundwork needed.

"The system devised and installed for us by Tag Guard has certainly met our requirements in all respects - it's also simple to use and is working perfectly".
