Thanet Council has a team of six operators who work in shifts to ensure that the CCTV system’s control room is manned at all times throughout the year. The system is directly connected to the Margate Police Station and handles approximately 11 incidents a day across the isle.

There are 95 cameras across Thanet covering predominantly the high streets and town centres and other busy areas.

The Thanet council CCTV team’s successful collaboration with the local police proves once again just how important the implementation of a high-end, reliable and secure CCTV surveillance system can prove to be nowadays, and this is also one of Tensor plc’s main areas of expertise.

Tensor has an extensive experience in installing CCTV systems and commissioning comprehensive video management solutions for large multi-site facilities, and can also fully integrate video surveillance into other security systems including ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), Access Control and Facial Recognition.

Whilst CCTV systems are an effective crime deterrent and can provide recorded video footage for post event analysis or evidence, the benefit to your business is enhanced through real-time remote monitoring of your CCTV system – providing extra eyes during an event and response through live audio, to challenge potential intruders as well as recording the situation.

Tensor’s Project Managers and Integration Engineers, all of which have a background in the security industry, professional engineering, IT and integration, defense electronics and the armed forces work to the highest standards to ensure that solutions achieve the required functionality, within budget, and are well implemented.
