Loseley Park – CCTV to record vehicles
Loseley Park estate near Guildford in Surrey has been owned by the same family since it was built by command of Queen Elizabeth I in 1568.The stately home and stunning gardens attract thousands of sight-seers every week, as well as employees and visitors to the numerous small businesses which rent outbuildings on the estate. Add to this the facilities that Loseley provides for weddings, business conferences, theatre evenings, and private parties, there is a large number of cars and visitors passing through the estate every day.
Naturally this gives opportunities to people with less than honourable motives – from theft to fly-tipping, or even illegal occupation by travellers! In response to these problems, Facilities Manager Adrian Abbot, commissioned their burglar alarm supplier to fit a CCTV system to monitor vehicle movements. But this was later removed when the installer agreed that the system could not be made to deliver satisfactory images of vehicles in darkness.
Adrian Abbott said, “We realised at that point that we needed to approach a CCTV specialist. As a result we contacted blitz security to see if they could provide a system that worked within the limited budget that we had”.”The new Blitz system delivers high quality images day and night of pedestrians, vehicles and their registration numbers”.
