Watchtower Security Solutions is part of a wider group which has been working across the world for 27 years. Informed by these many years of expertise, they offer industry leading, all-in-one surveillance solutions for valuable, remote, unstaffed and vulnerable locations.
Watchtower Security Solutions’ key product is the WT-1, a large, robust mobile mast with sophisticated cameras and equipment encased in a CE certified unit all offering CCTV surveillance 24/7. It has recently achieved Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation. SBD is an official police security initiative focusing on crime prevention through ‘designing out crime’, acting as a measurable standard for quality crime prevention products. Thus, the WT-1’s SBD accreditation guarantees its effectiveness in reducing crime.
The towers are equipped with four thermal/optical turret analytics cameras, meaning they can quickly detect all types of intrusions in all weather conditions, minimising any resultant damage or loss. What’s more, line perimeter detection is linked to the monitoring station for instant detection of intrusion and crime. They also come with three power options: mains power, hydrogen/solar power, and methanol/solar power.
The benefit of the towers are threefold. Firstly, unwanted intruders on sites can be detected quickly, minimising damage or loss. Secondly, there are savings of over 60% in the equivalent manned guarding costs. Thirdly, often site insurance requires it.
Because the tower is monitored 24/7 and has 360° coverage, it can see far and wide across the site and also acts as a great visual deterrent to reduce the risk of chance crime. If anything happens, the key holder and the police are called but if it’s something petty, the tower features an audio challenge function, so you can speak directly to the intruder. If they don’t listen, then you can activate a 120-decibel alarm to further encourage them to leave.
To complement this innovative system, Watchtower Security Solutions provides a streamlined service, delivering the tower within seven days of the initial survey and even sooner if the request is urgent.
