Castle Point Borough Council - CCTV Installation Testimonial

Date: 9 March 2023

When Castle Point Borough Council came to us with a problematic watercourse, we thought they should have called Blake Contractors, but actually our CCTV department were the right team for the job...

The Problem

For Castle Point Borough Council, this particular watercourse was a big issue.

It had a tendency to flood in winter and cause lots of problems. However, the only way to see whether the drain was behaving required an engineer to check in person - up to 4 times a day!

After contacting us about this problem, we created a solution that saved them time and money.

A Wireless CCTV Solution

We knew the situation needed a wireless CCTV camera as there was simply no way to get a cable to run from the office to the watercourse.

There was no WIFI signal close to the drain, so we decided to connect to the main office via a mobile internet connection.

This wireless technology allowed the Council to view the situation at the watercourse from the comfort of their own office or, on the go, via their smart phones.

With this relatively simple wireless camera set-up, we helped the Council to save both time and money.

What Castle Point Borough Council Thought:

"Blakes have worked with Castle Point for a number of years installing and servicing our CCTV and alarm systems. They have always gone above and beyond to help look for solutions to problems. Recently Blakes helped to install a CCTV to monitor a watercourse during flooding events, the site had no internet access and limited electrical supply. Through testing many systems we now have a bespoke system that prevents the need for the watercourse to be checked in person, it can instead be checked via desktop computers and smartphones saving the council both time and money."

Castle Point Borough Council weren't the only ones to enjoy the benefits CCTV brings.
