SmartTower CCTV shortlisted for 'CCTV System of the Year'
VPS Site Security are delighted to have been shortlisted as a finalist for the IFSEC Security and Fire Excellence Awards 2014, in the CCTV System of the Year category, announced recently.
The innovative technology was chosen to help to secure unique Ryder Cup TV coverage last month, protecting the television compound at Gleneagles.
VPS Site Security is the specialist site security arm for VPS, the market leaders in vacant property management, and their SmartTower CCTV has already garnered New Product of the Year and U.S. Government Security Awards in 2014. The winner of this latest award will be announced in November.
SmartTower CCTV is designed specifically for use in remote, vulnerable or temporary locations such as on construction, utility and critical infrastructure sites. It combines a stable alloy sub frame, pneumatic mast, state of the art power sources, cameras and sensors, allowing it to be deployed in any terrain, even in harsh weather conditions. It can be powered by AC power, wind, solar or hydrogen fuel cell, so that the SmartTower can operate even if core utilities are not easily available.
"An astonishing year for the SmartTower CCTV," comments Mr Anthony Owen, the Managing Director for VPS Site Security. "IFSEC receives hundreds of applications for these awards, so to be a finalist alongside the likes of Panasonic and Siemens is recognition for the intelligence and thought that has gone into the design."
"SmartTower is just one of a raft of innovations unique to VPS which our customers benefit from, giving them a protective edge in securing their vacant properties or remote sites, and reducing the risks of theft, vandalism, squatting or weather damage. We're passionate about protecting empty premises, and our staff work hard to keep our market leading position."
