Ageing CCTV at the Diocese of London’s headquarters has been replaced with a new IP-based system, by Delta Security, the east London-based CCTV and access control installer.
The HQ in Pimlico, pictured, manages the estate of the Church of England in London: some 420 churches, 160 church schools and 400 clergy houses. After attempted break-ins over the years, the Diocese sought to upgrade the CCTV installed 20 years ago. Delta specified 20 IP-based cameras at entrances, common paths and corridors all linked to a network storage device.
Martin How, Head of ICT at the Diocese of London says the process from start to finish was very smooth: “Delta works closely with our property management team to secure a number of properties in our estate including our HQ. We always find that the planning, project management and installation to be extremely professional and very good value for money, which is why we see Delta as a long-term strategic partner.”
The security system is working exactly as it should: “The new CCTV system has given us all peace of mind that the only people on site are those who are authorised to be there – so it goes beyond security and is an essential tool that ensures we are meeting our health and safety obligations.”
Dave Mundy, the Operations Director at Delta Security says: “Since we were first established in 1962 we have tried to create relationships with our clients that last for many years – and it is this mutual understanding that is working so well with the Diocese of London and we hope carries on for many years to come.”
