As the new football season gets underway, one football club keen to get back to the action at their ground is Middlezoy Rovers FC in Bridgwater. The recent completion of a project to create a brand new sports pavilion at the football ground gave the team cause for celebration, and ESP provided the CCTV systems to guarantee security for the premises.
The site, which originally housed a World War II shelter, was transformed to provide the new ‘Ethan Berry Pavilion’, with much-needed amenities including a brand new lounge and bar area, reception and kitchen facilities.
The contractor responsible for specifying and installing the security products at the site was Matt Francis of M-Tech Electrical, a family-run electrical contracting firm covering the south west region. He recommended ESP’s HDview 5MP IP POE CCTV system. The IP POE CCTV range is designed to offer superior, reliable and straightforward installation solutions and is particularly suitable for larger applications with its wide choice of NVRs and camera selection.
The range features POE (Power-Over-Ethernet) which enables the camera and power feed to be wired in Cat5e cable up to 100 metres without the need for additional power, which makes installation much more convenient. A single Ethernet cable provides both the power and the HD digital feed, with just one cable per camera, and multiple cameras can be installed anywhere on the network that the NVR is connected to.
The HDView IP POE 16 channel NVR was set up along with six white 3.6mm lens 2MP IP dome cameras and two white 2.8-12mm lens 5MP IP bullet cameras. These were positioned at various locations on the site to provide maximum coverage, including the car park, entrance and reception at the Pavilion, as well as the extensive kitchen, lounge and bar facilities.
Commenting on the install project, Matt Francis said: “From the initial contact with ESP for the design of a suitable CCTV system for the project, it was a very straightforward process. I was impressed with the ease of installation and set up of the system and the quality of images from the cameras is excellent. Having remote access to the system was very important to the client, and they are impressed with the overall result.”
