Case Studies

Security Requirements:

A logistics depot within a busy industrial area in Exeter is the regional base for a large nationwide company, who store and deliver freight and parcels to commercial and residential customers.  To protect the building and the areas within the security fence, UIS installed an integrated security solution, consisting of Access control, Intruder alarm system and CCTV with video monitoring activated by motion sensors, which send immediate images via a secure link to our video response centre for assessment by trained control centre operators.


  • High Value stock on site
  • Vision monitored electronic guarding system
  • Alarm receiving centre (ARC)
  • Motion sensors
  • UIS video response centre
  • System integration


UIS’s video response centre has proven its effectiveness by foiling an attempted intrusion to the premises during a period when the depot was closed.  Our sensitive cameras were triggered by movement in the depot compound, which then alerted the duty operator in our video response centre, located in the alarm receiving centre (ARC) over 30 miles away from the scene of the incident.

After notifying the depot key holder, the operator continued to monitor the situation.  When the two intruders were seen attempting to force open the fire exit, the operator called the police and updated the key holder of the situation.  One intruder escaped but the other perpetrator was arrested at the scene.


UIS’s successful response to the depot raid, underlines the importance of professionally monitored and integrated security solutions and an excellent relationship between the control room operators and the Police.
