Commercial Warehouse Security System Installation

We recently worked on a complex security system installation for a commercial warehouse that had previously been used for another purpose but was now being used to store and dispatch high value products.
The owner of the building had originally wanted a system that allowed them to set the zones and adjust the system configuration via a smart phone app but after discussing the overall business requirements with Brendon they realised that the system they had researched would not manage enough sensor inputs and instead they chose the Bosch 6000 system recommended by Sterling Security.
The Bosch 6000 system allows for up to 144 different sensor inputs and does have an end user interface available that allows the customer to configure the system, though we recommend allowing our installers to do this for you as this customer has done since configuration is a complex job best handled by the system experts.
In this case the Bosch 6000 system is managing 12 motion sensors, 19 heat detectors, Reid switches on numerous doors and access control which can manage up to 256 access tags with full control over zones and times for each user. In addition 16 CCTV cameras are connected to an NVR.
Interestingly the heat sensors are being used instead of standard smoke detectors as normal smoke detectors are effected by the high dust content of the warehouse.
The cameras are spread throughout the site and include a camera over the dispatch area so that customer orders can be checked in the case of a customer making contact to claim a missing item from there order.
The system includes full battery back up in the case power is cut and is monitored 24/7 by our local Sterling Security monitoring station.
This complex commercial security system installation involved our installers working around the builders modifying the building for its new use and the warehouse dispatch staff already at work, taking them between 40 and 50 hours’ total work time and multiple visits.
