The King’s School
The King’s School in North Parramatta sprawls over 120 hectares. It was established in 1831 and has a current student body of 1450 boys. Though King’s is a private school, it is very much part of the local Parramatta community, with neighbours using the grounds for recreation and local state schools sharing the sports facilities.
The School wanted to provide a high level of security without limiting access to people who have a legitimate reason to be in the grounds or its buildings.
CCTV was first explored in 2004 and started with an analogue/digital solution in 2005. In 2007 Quest Security Solutions was invited to design a solution that would improve the image quality of the then analogue/digital system. The system would need to be capable of expanding throughout the school as required for years to come while essentially remaining one system.
Quest Security Solutions was awarded the contract based on the system design, hardware selection and the professional expertise to implement such a solution into this complex location. The IP surveillance solution initially comprised of external IP cameras around the internal road system of the school. Future expansion saw IP cameras installed in areas with high asset value or in areas for staff, student and visitor safety. All images travel through a custom made separate Local Area Network (LAN) to a centralised storage facility with access for nominated management staff only.
The first phase of the new IP Video Surveillance solution was commissioned in July 2007 with subsequent rollouts over the past three years. Since then it has been reported by the school that the system had and continues to have a positive effect in all areas where the system is installed.
The School will continue to expand the IP surveillance system into school grounds and buildings with significant asset value and/or as duty of care for staff, students and visitors.
