As a business owner, there are many things you have to worry about, but your business' security doesn't have to be one of them.
Wavestore, the British developer of highly secure, open-platform Video Management Software (VMS), has introduced EcoStore, an energy saving technology developed to significantly increase the sustainability of a video surveillance solution.
With businesses looking at ways to reduce energy and operating costs, as well as wishing to implement social environment friendly policies, EcoStore offers the potential to save over 80% of the overall energy normally required for a hard drive storage solution. It does so by facilitating the spin-down of hard drives, or groups of hard drives, which are not in a read/write state.
Developed by workforce management specialists HFX, EveryOneCloud provides cleaning contractors of all sizes with the convenience to track employee attendance, presence and location in real-time, with a low cost monthly fee.
The project was commissioned through Kent-based trade customer Taylor Refit, who removed the existing doors and installed new high security steel doorsets certified to LPS 1175 security ratings from the Powershield range. The upgrade comes as part of Network Rail's plan to heighten the security level to its signal rooms following the recent vandalism.
