Hospital Security Systems | Keeping Our Hospitals Safe When it comes to hospitals, implementing and upholding exceptional health and safety policies is absolutely crucial and steps must be taken to ensure the protection of both the staff, patients and any other visitors within the premises. One of the best ways in which this can be done is through the use of excellent security systems and the highest quality products with proven performance and reliability. Our team here at KBO have worked in a variety of different hospitals across the South East, most recently including Farnham Hospital, to provide them with the security solutions most suitable for their requirements. Our team of experts understand that there is not a ‘one-size fits all’ solutions when it comes to hospital security systems. We tailor each of our designs to meet the needs of every individual premises and carry out thorough, extensive surveys which identify any potential risks in existing systems. Farnham Road Hospital, Guildford We were recently employed to improve the hospital security systems at Farnham Road Hospital, as it lacked the latest CCTV technology the hospital required to maximise the safety of their building. One of the key missing functions was access to remote viewing of CCTV cameras. Their CCTV System is not only required for general surveillance, but also for viewing vulnerable areas where people at high risk are present within the building. Having low-quality recordings is a cause for concern, should any incidents occur and film footage need to be reviewed. Our team of experts paid a visit to the site and carried out a detailed technical survey, in order to identify any issues which needed resolving. These included:
- A lack of compatibility between the old CCTV recorders and the clients PC’s, which was the cause for a lack of connectivity and viewing issues.
- There was not enough hard drive space for the number of cameras, which was severely limiting the recording duration.
- There was a conflict with the user name and passwords, to the IP cameras, which was causing some of the cameras to show no images.
There are a range of benefits of having these modern security systems in place, which would help to bring the hospital up to speed and ensure the additional safety of any vulnerable patients within. Some of these include:
- higher image resolution
- remote viewing of the system through a secure server
- full control, pan tilt zoom cameras, minimising blind spots
- future-proofing of the cable infrastructure with CAT6 now installed
- a user-friendly system, simple to use
