Temporary Security – CCTV


Temporary Security is ideal for areas that need protecting for a set amount of time until they are ready for permanent security systems. Areas such as construction sites, whether on an industrial scale or a small build may require protection so that equipment and materials are not stolen or tampered with. Early detection is critical and can greatly reduce the posibility of costly project delay costs caused by criminal damage.

Here at The Protector Group we offer a wide range of temporary security services such as;

  • Bastion Tower CCTV
  • Pro-Ceptor Towers
  • RapidCams
  • Lewis Trailers
  • Temporary CCTV Monitoring
  • Temporary Turnstiles
  • Temporary Fire Alarms

The Protector Group has been offering professional security services for over 20 years now a

Bastion Tower CCTV Security System

The Bastion Tower CCTV Security System is BS8418 compliant and is one of our main products in our specialist division providing Temporary Security Solutions (TSS) for commercial clients across the U.K.  TSS provides clients with tailored designed systems of protection suitable for each stage of a project from inception to completion. Clients benefit from our ability to install, maintain and monitor sites using proven, leading edge technical solutions for asset protection and ingress control.

The Bastion Tower CCTV Security System consists of rapid deployment of a number of mounted towers, on which high-quality Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) and or static, mono or true day/night cameras are fitted enabling full coverage of all integral areas. The perimeter and integral secure areas are covered using external movement detectors and twin ended beams. Full infrared or soft lighting depending on what is required and legally viable is provided to cover each camera range, as in the dark cameras can only view what they can see. Intruders activate these beams causing the system to generate an alarm condition which is fed back to our own Central Monitoring Station.  Systems can have audio announcements informing intruders that they are being recorded on CCTV and police will be called if they do not leave immediately.

The key area of Temporary Security Systems, and our main asset, is the detail of the site survey, which determines the numbers, and locations of the Bastion CCTV Towers required to enable the site to be fully secured.  Too few cameras could result in a security blind area not fully under detection and result in a costly break-in on site.

Our TSS systems are designed to offer the “Best Value” for money in the marketplace but will rarely be the cheapest, mainly because we offer a fully comprehensive system price which includes the following:

(a) No delivery charges for the equipment.

(b) No removal charges for the equipment.

(c) No charge for re-siting of equipment as site develops.

(e) Comprehensive insurance of goods and services contained within detailed site surveyed

Our monitored CCTV solutions – such as the Bastion Tower  system, for long-term projects or the Lewis Trailer for rapid deployment offer complete flexibility. All systems benefit from 24 hour monitoring by our control system, which operates and is accredited to BS 5979:2010 Category 2.

The control room contains a 36-screen monitor wall, manned by trained controllers in four individual operator booths equipped to receive signals from all leading edge transmission equipment on the market today, including Adpro, Intellex, Teleprecision, Dedicated Micros, Videcon to name but a few. This equips us with a matchless volume of monitoring, providing our customers with the best possible service and response times, enabling us to accommodate any security application – which can be used for anything from Black Screen Monitoring to Real Time Live Imaging, a wide enough range to suit all customer requirements and budgets.

The control room is also fitted with the latest CCTV monitoring software, including Adpro Fastscan, Vista Smart-Tel and Computar CM Control, enabling us to accommodate any security application – which can be used for anything from Black Screen Monitoring to Real Time Live Imaging, a wide enough range to suit all customer requirements and budgets.

Many installers use third-party monitoring stations, but we are pleased to be able to offer this service first hand to our customers. Having our own dedicated monitoring station means that in the event of your premises being compromised, our cameras with the assistance of strategically installed detection spot the intruder and notify one of our trained operatives in seconds. Depending upon your requirements our control room operates can deal with this intrusion in a number of ways from audio announcements, dispatching one of our own mobile response drivers or calling the police.

In tandem with our mobile response units, monitored CCTV systems offer a cost-effective alternative to static security. Our CCTV systems can improve the overall security of your premises whilst dramatically reducing your annual security budget.

Many of our major clients have already adopted this approach with very effective results – in various business sectors including – warehousing, commercial, construction and demolition.

Lewis Trailer

Originally conceived with civil engineering companies in mind, the Lewis Trailer’s uses have since multiplied tenfold; it is now used on construction and demolition sites, empty warehouses, factories and builder’s yards.

A four-columned CCTV unit, the Lewis Trailer was designed in house and is fully compliant to BS8418. One of the few solutions on the market at present which allow for a URN to be issued to short term or temporary installations. It can also carry an additional four cameras if required and in the event power is not available can be self-powered for a period of 168 hours before it needs to recharge.

Covering sites of up to 120 square metres and offering 360 degree vantage from all four PTZ infra-red cameras in complete darkness, the Lewis Trailer can be installed by two people and transmitting to our control room within eight hours. One column can be operational inside an hour.

It has full audio detection and recording, while its integrated infra-red is sufficient to provide images capable of person identification.

Watch our video on how to set up the Lewis Trailer.

Temporary Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarms are the most common method of electronic security. Many insurance companies require an alarm to be fitted before they will insure a property. Most also stipulate that the systems must be installed by a certified company. As with CCTV, The Protector Group are accredited by both NSI (National Security Inspectorate) & SSAIB (Security Systems Alarms Inspection Board),both of which are UKAS approved certification boards. You may also find that if the right criteria are met then some insurance companies may offer a discount on premiums.

There are many types of intruder alarm system available and each installer will have their own favourite. We have chosen our range of panels and detectors based on quality, reliability and user friendliness.

Unlike some national companies we are not tied to one particular manufacturer so we can offer a wider range of products based on specific requirements. This also allows us to be more competitive on price and helps us to design systems based upon the customer’s budget.

Remote monitoring has become an integral part of intruder alarms. We are pleased to be able to offer all forms of signalling available, including confirmed signalling such as Redcare GSM & Dual Com.

For temporary measures, quick-to-install wireless alarm systems are ideal, and less destructive than a permanent, hard-wired system, and also offer superior versatility as radio-linked sensors are free to be moved between different locations at your discretion.

You don’t even require power or a phone line.

The detection devices are in constant communication with the base station, and if any problem arises, the system warning lights will trigger a fault and generate an alert. Because your security requirements change as site works progress, a temporary wireless alarm system can be expanded or downsized, without incurring additional callout charges.

With minimal instruction, sensors can be moved from one location to another, depending on your needs or fixed by us to a less temporary position. The Protector Group carry out regular preventative maintenance visits to the system to ensure that it is still operating correctly and still meets the requirements of the end user.

We don’t just set you up, we keep you set up.

Temporary Turnstiles

Access egress, we provide the ins and outs of your business. We can supply full and half-height, internal and external temporary turnstiles which can come as stand-alone features or in a unit, and can be accessed via a fob, card, biometric reader or optical recognition.

Ideal for external locations – such as construction sites – where protection of property is paramount but cost also a factor, our full-height temporary turnstiles offer the ultimate in security and foot-flow control through an entrance/exit point.

Compact and robust, they are reliable and offer value for money, making them the ideal choice for providing effective control in areas where security is desirable but where cost had previously been prohibitive. They will, we believe, pay for themselves and assist with Health and Safety control problems.

Furthermore, our intuitive and easy to administer PC-based access control system offers the benefit of additional security without requiring time-consuming administration.
