Heritage Building CCTV System

Protecting history with Tecserv.

As the owner, curator or facilities manager of a heritage building or visitor attraction it is your priority to ensure the protection of the building and its contents.

The installation of a CCTV surveillance system means that from a single central monitoring point all areas of the building can be monitored and filmed. This acts as a significant deterrent against theft, break-ins and malicious damage.

Key Challenges

Due to their very nature, heritage buildings can be difficult to keep a close eye on. There are usually many corridors, cupboards, hidden corners and even secret passages!

Our Approach

We have experience of installing CCTV surveillance systems for heritage buildings and know how important it is to consider building aesthetics.

Working with you we will identify the most valuable assets or potential blind spots and specify a CCCTV system that will help you keep them under 24-hour surveillance.

We’ll also provide an ongoing CCTV system maintenance service to ensure your equipment is regularly inspected and that you remain compliant with all CCTV surveillance regulations.

Heritage buildings and museums CCTV Benefits

Theft & Damage Prevention

Museums and heritage buildings usually contain rare, highly valuable and often irreplaceable artifacts and décor. A well installed and correctly positioned CCTV camera system will act as a deterrent against theft or other damages. It also can provide the evidence of what was stolen or damaged and who was responsible.

Movement validation

Surveillance cameras can be used to validate many things, from validating deliveries to tracking people movements. Correctly installed CCTV can be used provide visibility on activity areas such as entrances, corridors, exhibit rooms as well as what is being loaded into or off loaded from delivery vehicles.

Investigatory Management Tool

The environment within a museum or heritage building can be very busy, or the buildings could be empty which means it can be hard for managers and supervisors to monitor activity. CCTV can be used as an investigatory and health and safety management tool as it provides visibility on things that would ordinarily go unresolved or unreported. Surveillance systems can be used to investigate incidents thoroughly and help to prove or disprove their occurrence and/or cause.

Remote Monitoring

The remote monitoring function means that you can access your CCTV system at anytime from anywhere via a mobile device. Remote surveillance allows you to monitor your buildings, inventory, employees and visitors from wherever you have an internet connection.
