CCTV:    Installation of latest IP CCTV system. We used Milestone VMS ( Video Management Software) with Axis mega pixel IP network cameras on our own standalone network. The system operates on two recording servers which are governed by a management server. These are connected using Multimode fibre interconnections which has been designed with redundancy capacity should a switch or link in the network fail.

Intruder & Panic Alarm system: We installed a Honeywell Galaxy intrusion system which we were able to intergrade the existing intrusion systems for the hospital. The new platform is now the basis for all of the intruder requirements being on the one panel. Separate blocks within the one system operate the Patients Accounts, Retail Shop, Out Patients & Medical records along with managing local door alarm on emergency fire exit doors. Panic alarms notify security for rapid response to the designated area with Gardaí support when required.

The security operators control the Milestone IP CCTV system from the comfort of a bespoke designed security console. Here we integrated the existing security system for the existing hospital alongside the new equipment.
