The main challenge of the Security sector is not just improving the service provided by security companies, but to ensure the health and safety of security staff that are often based on remote sites owned by third parties. The goal must be to employ radio based communications to deliver improvements in both site security and staff safety
Capcom can provide a range of radio communications systems to meet this challenge, from single site to multi-site security solutions.
Provides voice calls where security staff and others can communicate beyond line of sight, across large or small, single or multi-storey locations, allowing improved control and response to security breaches or health and safety situations.
In addition to voice calls, the communications system has CCTV functionality, delivered via an IP network, so that the 24/7 manned control room can see the security staff and other users on multiple sites simultaneously. If there is an emergency the security guard can press the alarm button on his radio handset and call for help. The control room can both speak to the security guard and locate/see him or her on the CCTV network, using the guard’s voice enabled pager with GPS tracking to identify their precise location.
Capcom can provide voice communications across multiple sites by linking systems together through a single, central control.
Inside Building Coverage
Capcom identifies and installs beacons in ‘difficult to reach’ areas within buildings or across sites in order to extend the IP network coverage so that the control room can monitor via voice, GPS and CCTV exactly where the security guards are located. If a guard is threatened he can press his alarm and if the control unit can see him on CCTV they can advise the best course of action.
The Capcom solution records all activities that take place, as if you were there, and this can be provided to management or to the authorities as required, for future action or analysis. Offering unprecedented levels of security, safety and accountability, this technology has recently been extended, in a partnership between Capcom and the MOD, to develop a new system to ensure that a firing range is clear of personnel before live firing starts. It’s a typical example of the way in which Capcom applies and evolves existing systems to solve new challenges, a classic bespoke response to a specific problem.
