"King Communications were utilised to upgrade the current system at Paisley Campus and in phase 2 intergrate Ayr Campus into the CCTV System. All the projects were completed in record time to keep the Universities Security functioning” - Dan Maxwell, University of the West of Scotland
The University of the West of Scotland (UWS), created by a merger between University of Paisley and Bell College, is Scotland’s biggest modern University with over 20,000 students. Investing in high calibre facilities to support the student learning experience is at the core of UWS’ development strategy and as part of this, the university sought to upgrade their security system in the Paisley Campus and interlinking the system at the Ayr Campus.
As part of the University’s security upgrade, the 20-acre Paisley campus received a full system refurbishment by King Communications & Security Ltd. The antiquated VHS tape system which had been previously operating, was replaced with 23 fixed megapixel cameras across the campus.
In addition, 22 HD CCTV cameras were installed for surveillance across the campus’ new residence building and the security control room was refurbished to include a dual viewing client.
In order to be as environmentally friendly and cost efficient as possible, King Communications utilised the existing cabling to install all the new systems. King Communications completed the full installation in just 3 weeks, allowing for a smooth transition period to occur.
