Cathedral security upgraded
Wed 11 May 2016
ELY Cathedral is being kept safe and secure thanks to a new security system installed by FWD-IP.
The Witchford firm, which has been working with the cathedral since 1992, has put in a new digital surveillance system, with cameras that can keep watch on all areas of the premises as well as the surrounding grounds. New dedicated servers store the footage, and a video management software (VMS) is able to control and monitor the IP CCTV system. The new system took four weeks to install.
“As always, working with FWD-IP was a pleasure,” said Ely Cathedral’s technical manager, Richard Clover.
“They are always professional and treat ElyCathedral with the respect and dignity it deserves. The work was completed to a very high standard and on budget with no disruption to our day-to-day operations.”
