Chester Zoo rationalises, networks and centralises its security operations. Axis Internet-of-Things solution offers improvements to security, animal welfare and visitor safety.
Chester Zoo wanted to upgrade its security provision across its expanding site. An existing CCTV estate needed to be improved and coverage extended. All cameras needed to be networked to enable centralised control and management in a new control room. This new system needed to support the zoo’s professional security team – helping them to spot and act on security threats more rapidly and proportionately. The new system also needed to support more comprehensive perimeter security, as well as visitor and staff health and safety monitoring.
The completion of the two-year project saw the installation and networking of 300 Axis network cameras, combined with several Axis network horn speakers. The new IP camera system transmits video to the zoo’s new IP-based centralised control room supported by Milestone XProtect video management software. Axis partner NW Systems completed installation, configuration and integration work for this entire project.Our Services Axis Solutions Milestone Solutions
