A school in the Waikato town of Te Kuiti was experiencing repeated problems with their existing security system. They were being given advice by their existing Waikato security provider that was costing the school an unsustainable amount of money.
The school was repeatedly being advised to replace security cameras at the whim of their previous Waikato security provider as they were lead to believe they were experiencing repeated camera and picture faults.
The ongoing cost of the security system was proving a real headache for the school administrators and something didn’t feel quite right so they called in security expert Brendon Frost from Sterling Security for a second opinion.
Brendon thoroughly analysed the existing security system and discussed his findings with the Te Kuiti school administrators who quickly realised they were being led astray by their existing Waikato security company and instructed Brendon to proceed with fixing their existing system that involved two separate CCTV systems covering different areas of the school.
To fix the existing system to ensure that reoccurring technician hardware replacement visits would cease involved us upgrading the DVR on the first of the two systems and replacing four security cameras along with all new balun connectors.
The Second security system was able to be reused by simply cleaning the existing security cameras, re pointing them and simply adjusting the focus.
Dealing with someone else’s installation in a rural environment posed a few challenges for our installers but with a day’s work from our installer the Te Kuiti School’s security system was just like new.
The school administrators are very happy as this was managed at a lower cost then what the previous Waikato security company had quoted and the school has not had to replace any of the alarm system or security camera hardware since the upgrade which has saved a lot of money in ongoing maintenance costs.
