About The Project
- Customers Requirements: Our most recent client contacted Puffin Solutions Ltd to replace their existing, analogue CCTV system.
- What Was Provided: Puffin provided a top of the range scalable, IP based CCTV solution.
- Services Provided: Commercial CCTV Installation
The new solution provided cover to the main plant; however our client had multiple sites across the UK, so the solution we provided had to include other sites at a later date.
The Cameras was installed externally to cover key access points to the building. In addition to the external cameras, cameras were installed to provide coverage of the goods in/out area within the production facility where there are four large bays. Each of these bays had two cameras installed both pointing down on the bay from both directions.
In total Puffin installed 17 cameras with 8 of the cameras providing a long-distance capability and the other nine cameras being a dome design camera.
The CCTV controller for the unit was installed in the comms room where it could not be tampered with.
It was important to our customer that the solution we provided was accessible via the network with different permission levels set up to restrict access to the system and then restrict certain users to specific cameras.
The CCTV solution was connected to the companies network but also accessible by authorised users to view all or some of the cameras depending on the privileges configured to that user. It was also important to our customer that these images could be viewed via mobile phones, PC’s, Laptops from anywhere in the world.
The standalone NVR Puffin installed was a new generation of LILIN professional NVR series. The NVR supported Ultra HD (4K) video recording of up to 32 channels.
The NVR also supports network redundancy and is able to prevent losing videos in case of a switch failure. Along with its low power consumption and all-in-one sleek design, the NVR provided users with a simple, affordable yet professional solution for megapixel surveillance in the mainstream market.
Puffin Solutions completed the installation within five days working alongside a busy and mainstream production line and caused no disruptions to the normal busy working day.
Feedback from client
The CCTV solution scoped and provided by Puffin Solutions was done very professionally, and knowing what we would expect from end to end through the process was valuable. We were happy with the overall quality of the installation, and the communications provided throughout which was a pleasure and helped to expedite the whole process. Our management are very happy with the camera system, especially regarding how we can view and obtain the footage we need quite easily. We are thankful to Puffin for providing a great, scalable and user-friendly solution.
I would also just like to take a second to point out, and thank Adam Craw, as he went the extra mile by liaising with the Client directly in order to deliver it all exactly how the customer wanted it. So I wanted to highlight this, as Adam really took control & ensured the customer was 100% satisfied with the installation.
