Switchnet upgrades security with innovative wireless connectivity to help protect guests, staff and property at family run site

UK: MOBOTIX AG has released details of a successful project at Emsworth Yacht Harbour (EYH) situated at the northern end of beautiful Chichester Harbour. The solution designed, installed and maintained by Switchnet combines day and night site monitoring, and wireless connectivity to reduce complexity and improve reliability.

Located within a short walk of Emsworth town on the South coast of England, the Harbour features 227 berths arranged on five pontoons complete with a Groves crane, a WISE boat parker and a 50 tonne travel hoist to allow the harbour to move boats to a hard standing for up to 200 boats.

EYH is a family owned business that prides itself on delivering professional services and facilities within a secure site. As part of its on-going policy to protect its guests and their property, Neil Brooke, Harbour Manager contacted Switchnet, a highly experienced MOBOTIX partner to suggest an upgrade to its legacy analogue CCTV, “Switchnet came highly recommended and understood the issues we had around running cables around the site so offered us a clever solution which also allowed us to improve our internet access for guests.”

Switchnet designed a simple, high-speed Wireless network that would provide a reliable method for connecting the new MOBOTIX high resolution CCTV cameras, motion sensors while also providing free internet access for guests. By utilising high resolution MOBOTIX technology, all key areas of the site are covered by just three cameras. With each unit offering a 66 Ingres Protection rating, the cameras require no heaters or protective covers to ensure reliable operation in any type of weather or temperature.

“The team from Switchnet carried out the site survey and installed the system, they then trained us how to use it and from that day onwards, it has just worked flawlessly,” explains Neil, “The cameras are incredibly unobtrusive and the staff can quickly check the site from any internet connected PC with the right login and password – for us, it is just simple and effective.”
