SECOM is pleased to have won third place in Tomorrow’s Facilities Management (Tomorrow’s FM) Product & Services Awards 2013 for its intelligent CCTV technology.
In total, Tomorrow’s FM had nominated 50 companies which it believed had made significant contributions and improvements to the facilities management industry in the past 12 months.
SECOM's prize-winning efforts concerned the implementation of intelligent CCTV systems at Speedy Service's plant hire yard in a rural industrial estate.
The cameras were equipped with the latest video analytics technology and IP-based software, offering a high security and cost-effective solution to Speedy, which has negated the need for manned security at the site.
Craig Smith, general manager of Speedy's plant hire division, said the solution gives managers the conﬁdence that any attempts to compromise stored machines will literally be stopped in their tracks.
He said: "Our property department looked at various security solutions, including manned guarding, before selecting the intelligent CCTV system that Secom proposed. We’ve had absolutely no problems since the system went live."
