Expert Education CCTV Camera Installation Services

    When it comes to keeping staff and students safe, you can’t be too careful. With our advanced CCTV cameras and intelligently integrated systems, we have you covered.

    Trusted by Oxford University for over 10 years, and with over 30 years' experience installing cutting-edge security systems, we know what's needed to protect educational establishments. 

    School CCTV Systems

    Your CCTV systems should reliably capture live footage for reactive playback, should you ever need it. But in today's world, is that really enough? At Chris Lewis, our CCTV and video installations go above and beyond simple reactive monitoring.

    Record and store unlimited footage with ease, and receive notifications if cameras go down or are meddled with.
    Automatically identify if cars are speeding or parked illegally and have alerts sent straight to your mobile device.
    View HD footage on desktop or mobile devices, from anywhere in the world, and benefit from quick, in-depth archive searching.
    Use CCTV as a video tripwire, and start recording if motion is detected out of hours or in specific, higher-risk areas.
    Receive notifications when an unknown person is on the premises, or if large groups are gathering, allowing you to take immediate action.
    Search and view footage by an individual's appearance. This can be based on their clothing or even pictures.

    Do more than just record and store footage

    As one of the leading installers in the UK, we are experts in customising and integrating CCTV Systems with intelligent features. Our team has supported the likes of Oxford University for over 30 years and will ensure CCTV and digital video surveillance works for you, taking your existing setup to the next level.

    Integrate your IP CCTV camera system with your access control system and use facial recognition to grant/deny access to people entering the building. Whether this is the main classrooms and communal areas, or even dorms/halls, it's essential to ensure access is only given to those who are permitted. You can even use ANPR to grant access to car parks.

    Use CCTV as an automatic tripwire or motion sensor to detect intruders on your premises out of hours. Police and security guards can be automatically alerted, and the footage captured will help them learn where the intruder is, as well as their appearance.

    Use archived CCTV footage to find where an individual was at a certain time using facial recognition. This can be used to see if a student attended the class they should have, or if someone accessed a building they weren't authorised to.

    Receive an instant notification if someone has accessed an area where they are not allowed. Alternatively, this same system can detect individuals skipping lessons or attempting to leave the grounds without permission.

    Benefit from out-of-hours surveillance coverage by registered professionals with our CCTV monitoring service. Prices start from just £15 per camera, saving thousands on having a security guard constantly roaming the grounds.
