Arden Wood Shaving

Arden Wood Shaving commissioned EDS to design, supply and install a remotely monitored perimeter detection system, digital CCTV system with fully functional high speed colour dome cameras and a external floodlighting scheme across it's rural, unmanned 10 acre open site.  
  • Remotely Monitored CCTV System
  • External Floodlighting Scheme
  • Perimeter Alarm System
  • Former World War Two Amunitions Yard
  • No Mains Electricity on Site
  • No Cabling Infrastructure Available

This particular project faced several major challenges, not only was the site a large and wide open storage yard not connected to any mains electricity supply, but was a former World War Two Ministry of Defence Ammunitions depot, complete with it's original storage bunkers, constructed of one metre thick concrete reinforced walls.


One Metre Thick Concrete Reinforced Walls

EDS in-house staff pulled out all the stops on this project, which involved the installation of long runs of ducting to bring a brand new mains electricity supply from the National Grid power source and connecting into one of the former bunkers.

Heavy duty excavation equipment was brought in to break out part of the floor and walls to allow the new cabling to pass through, which was over a metre thick. The site control equipment is housed in one of the very secure former high grade amunitions bunkers.

State of the Art Integrated Digital CCTV Technology

The site is protected with a perimeter movement detection system combining high speed colour dome cameras linked to zoned detectors, therefore whenever any one of the perimeter sensors detects an alarm condition the cameras automatically zoom in. For added nightime security floodlights illuminate the areas where detection has occurred.

All alarm conditions are transmitted back to EDS's secure monitoring centre and Arden's Head Office using an encrypted high security network connection, where the images of any one of the cameras can be viewed. Previously recorded footage and that of live images can also be viewed on any of the firms networked computers, with full time and date searching facilities to track events.

The system is also used for stock control to count the number of stored pallets within the yard and to monitor driver activity logging the time, date, vehicle registration and drivers details locally and remotely.
