Writtle College – Objective: IP camera system in Writtle, Essex


Writtle College is on a 220-hectare estate with multiple outbuildings and car parks. As a result, the College required improved security to ensure every student, staff member and visitor is safe whilst on site.

The use of IP CCTV meant the College could utilise cameras across numerous outbuildings, car parks, and bicycle sheds. These cameras were to be monitored without obstructing much-needed access using physical barriers.

The ClearView Solution

The College enlisted ClearView Communications, who had completed a site survey recommending an IP system be utilised. This system would take advantage of the College’s existing local area network.

This solution has provided a more proactive management tool, with authorised users being able to access live or stored images on their PC at any time without any loss of live event recording. Modular solutions like this also offer the additional advantage that additional cameras/recorders can be added to the network as the College expands.

The use of a digital recording system has already been instrumental in reducing campus crime.
