Synectics has secured a competitive public space contract to provide integrated surveillance solutions for a number of prestigious sites across London. Comprising government properties, heritage sites and high-profile public event venues, the contract uses Synectics’ tailored, open-architecture solutions incorporating integration to third-party systems such as access control and intruder detection.
Synectics, which supports more than 70 per cent of London’s boroughs as well as major retail stores and stadiums across the city, will upgrade all sites to its Synergy 3 command and control software platform. The sites include listed buildings, high-security ‘closed-to-public’ assets and venues with high levels of public footfall.
Martin Bonfield, UK Sales Manager at Synectics, stated, ‘Each of these sites falls under our specialism in public space, but individually they each have unique requirements. That plays to our strengths in terms of the flexible technologies we offer and the broader sector experience we hold, from gaming and critical national infrastructure to city surveillance, retail, and public transport.’
The Synergy 3 solution deployed at each site will enable the control room teams to monitor existing cameras — totalling around 500 across the sites — alongside integrated third-party systems such as access control and intruder detection. Linking all locations for eventual multi-site monitoring was a crucial component of the project brief, ensuring the sites continue to support future needs and incorporate the latest camera technology and system features as required.
