When electrical contractor, Tony Hickman, from A J Hickman Electrical, had a query for a security project from the owner of a stud farm in Warwickshire, he contacted his local electrical wholesaler for some product recommendations. With a great working relationship long established between the wholesaler and local ESP sales manager, Scott Phillimore, Scott was soon brought onto the project to provide his expertise.
A site visit to the Stud Farm was required to provide Scott with details of the security requirements and to put a proposal forward. With no existing security measures in place at the large premises and surrounding acres, the owner was concerned about being vulnerable to potential break ins and thefts and wanted the best CCTV system possible to protect her highly valuable assets, which, as well as horses, includes expensive tack and equipment.
With such extensive grounds to cover – large stables, storage areas, training grounds, as well as a couple of fields – Scott recommended the HDview 5MP IP POE CCTV system. The IP POE CCTV range is designed to offer superior, reliable and straightforward installation solutions and is particularly suitable for larger applications with its wide choice of NVRs and camera selection.
The range features POE (Power-Over-Ethernet) which enables the camera and power feed to be wired in Cat5e cable up to 100 metres without the need for additional power, which makes installation much more convenient. A single Ethernet cable provides both the power and the HD digital feed, with just one cable per camera and multiple cameras can be installed anywhere on the network that the NVR is connected to.
The HDView IP POE 32 channel NVR was set up along with around 20 cameras to cover the extensive premises. A mixture of white bullet and dome cameras were selected including 3.6mm fixed lens and 2.8-12mm varifocal lens cameras and these were mounted on deep camera bases to provide a neat and tidy finish. Two of the 8-way POE switches were also used to extend the run lengths past 100m and to make the wiring aspect easier.
Processing power, an abundance of features, versatility and high resolution IP CCTV all combine to make ESP’s HDView IP POE system the superior choice over traditional analogue systems, and it proved to be the ideal solution for the Stud Farm project.
