ESSA’s systems monitor and control more than 300 CCTV cameras in Exeter city centre, helping to prevent crime and keep citizens safe.
Exeter is a historic city located on the banks of the River Exe, with a population of 120,000 and a modern, successful business edge, with the University of Exeter and the MET Office occupying large sites in the area.
The city council chose ESSA to design, implement a public space surveillance system based in the existing city centre control room. ESSA also carries out comprehensive maintenance services.
The control system, operating across a number of sites, takes feeds from more than 300 CCTV cameras located in highways, car parks, shopping arcades, the high street, parks and other municipal facilities.
It uses a hybrid of technologies to connect the cameras and control room, including wireless, fibre-optic and IP based technologies.
It has already proved itself a successful tool in crime prevention, crime reduction and public safety.
