“A custody suite places demands on systems which are very different from most security applications. It is a challenging workplace with the staff at the charge desk handling calls, requests, alerts, alarms, controlling points of entry and exit with the distraction of a potentially volatile and hostile environment.
We therefore needed a security solution which could transparently integrate our access control, intruder alarm, intercom and CCTV, to ensure that we gain maximum benefit from all the individual systems. The solution provided by Cortech and Vicon has proved to be highly effective. It allows our operators with minimal training to efficiently control the systems employed within their custody suite, enabling them to react to incidents in an organised manner."
Paul Pickering, Inspector – Custody Management Unit, Cleveland Police Headquarters
"The management system provided by Cortech is state of the art equipment, which helps our operators to view events and manage security events through the 3D graphical interface. The quality of the system is excellent, by clicking on a camera icon a CCTV image can be viewed from the other side of the City."
Peter Foy - Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
"The Datalog software has enhanced our operational efficiency for handling alarms in key areas of the Airport. This integration initiative has also created a cost effective single point of operation for our lift emergency, service yard intercoms and panic alarms within specific passenger areas. Importantly as a modular platform the software is scalable, enabling the Airport to deploy the latest technology as part of its evolving requirements."
Geoff Densham, Project Manager - Manchester Airport PLC
"The protection of the Museum collections and the safety of our staff and visitors are of paramount importance. We care for over two million objects in our collection, an outstanding resource that is both unique and extremely valuable. We have invested in a high security solution that is driven by Cortech’s software enabling us to simplify our operating processes. Using a combination of people and technology we are able to maximise response time for alarms and deploy resources within seconds."
Steven Cox, Head of Facilities and Security - Museum of London
"We rely upon our Cortech Datalog system for all of our intruder alarms, door alarms and panic alarms. It has been an invaluable tool in delivering our security services across a large and complex healthcare site.
The ease with which it has linked to our other security systems such as CCTV, door access and third party alarm systems means that we can have a single reference point for multiple alarms and events. This makes for a more efficient security control room and helps us to provide a faster and more reliable response.
I have had hands on experience with Datalog at the Royal Infirmary for almost seven years now and in that time we have never known it to fail."
Gordon Chalmers, Security Manager - Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh
“We have benefitted considerably from centralising our operations and it has brought about a multitude of operational and cost efficiencies. The Datalog software is now at the heart of our security operations and links our sites together seamlessly. Datalog has significantly simplified our processes for responding to alarms and events. We are able to identify the precise location of alarms and incidents quickly through the 3D rendered graphical building and floor plans. The information the system generates now provides us with an important audit trail of alarms and events including a historical log of video verification.”
Gerald Doocey, Operations Technical Support Group Manager - Veolia Water Central
“Once Datalog is working successfully on your site – which happens very quickly – it behaves itself. I’ve not had any problems in 15 years, which is testament to the robustness of the software. I’m very proud of the system we have here.”
Rob Marshall, Security Manager - Cambridge University Press
“Datalog has fully met our expectations. Managing our centralised Alarm Receiving Centre with one database simplifies our operations greatly within the control room. We are able to respond to various alarms and events quickly. The system has already enabled the University to reduce risk and provide greater situation awareness.”
