Buckfast Abbey, one of the U.K.'s most famous monasteries, integrated existing analogue and new IP cameras into a single hybrid DVR surveillance system. The Abbey selected a HVR for a flexible, easy-to-manage and reliable security system to ensure that its shops, restaurant and conference areas are constantly monitored and protected from theft and vandalism.
Each day, Buckfast Abbey welcomes the public to visit its grounds, totaling more than 20 acres, for both leisure and business. Due to the sheer size of the site, however, security is an issue. After experiencing a series of thefts and vandalism, the Abbey sought to upgrade its analog surveillance system to a networked system for improved crime detection as well as system reliability, performance and simplicity.
The HVR, which supports a variety of cameras at Buckfast Abbey, allows for digital images to be recorded from the Abbey’s existing analog cameras and new network cameras in a single Digital Video Recorder. HVR provides the future option of introducing further high resolution network cameras in the future when the IP network infrastructure is complete.
Among the key features of the HVR installed at Buckfast Abbey are continuous, motion-based and event recording. Footage can be searched from up to eight channels simultaneously to include time and date, specified events, motion and activity. Media can be exported to CD/DVD with one-click media clip and data watermarking, and media clip authentication with the player software is also included.
For additional security on criminal incidents, LPR was incorporated into the Abbey’s surveillance system. Now, a motion sensor triggers license plate image capture whenever cars enter through the service and main entrances. The DVR makes access to such footage faster and easier than before, dramatically improving incident response-time and helping police investigations.
