Justice Security uses CheckMyCCTV to provide proactive CCTV Health Monitoring

CheckMySystems Ltd. has signed a major deal to provide UK installer Justice Fire and Security with the latest version of its innovative CheckMyCCTV health monitoring software solution.

CheckMyCCTV is designed to automatically identify and report specific CCTV issues, whether it be a camera, hard disk, recording, or network connection failure.

Following the agreement with CheckMySystems Ltd, Justice Fire and Security will be offering CCTV health monitoring to all of its customers. The Birmingham-based installer, which also operates ten additional branches across the UK, sees the diagnostic capability unlocked by CheckMyCCTV as an important enhancement to the professional and proactive service it provides for its CCTV customer base.

Justice Fire and Security already has a strong focus on best practice as a member of the BSIA, a founder member of NSI with NACOSS Gold for electronic security systems and works to the BS8418 standard for detector activated CCTV systems.

Dave Sanders the Managing Director, and founder of Justice Fire and Security is enthusiastic about the potential operational benefits of CheckMyCCTV: “In my view, rolling out CheckMyCCTV is going to make a tremendous difference to what we can offer our customers. At a practical level it means that we now have access to up-to-date information, around-the-clock, on the status of our customers’ CCTV systems. By receiving instant notification of specific failures action can be taken in a timely manner to get things back up and running.

“Before adopting CheckMyCCTV we may not always have known about a system fault until an engineer actually travelled to site to carry out an annual routine inspection. The beauty of CheckMyCCTV is that the software allows vital checks to be carried out remotely so the time and effort of our engineers can targeted in a more focused way. Crucially, it also prevents issues being left unresolved which of course is a critical factor where site security is concerned.”

Dave is also pleased with the support provided by CheckMySystems in the lead-up to CheckMyCCTV going ‘live’: “The team at CheckMySystems have been extremely helpful in setting up the system, which went smoothly, and answering our technical questions. We are currently running CheckMyCCTV on two 40 inch displays in our main service office.

The software is well designed and easy to use and we particularly like the ability to display two elements simultaneously: one highlighting the status of sites with a user-friendly ‘traffic light’ system and the other a map of their specific locations.”

Commented Darren Rewston, Managing Director at CheckMySystems Ltd on the deal with Justice Fire and Security: “We are delighted that, following a trial, Justice Fire and Security has decided to take-up CheckMyCCTV as an added value service to their customers. CheckMyCCTV provides an intelligent and economical way to monitor the status of security-critical CCTV systems across multiple sites.

The number of sites covered by CheckMyCCTV has grown dramatically over the past 12 months, with particular interest from the retail sector, where multiple CCTV systems are spread over a large geographical area. This is a trend that we expect to continue as more and more installers and monitoring centres look to offer CheckMyCCTV health monitoring to their customers. In addition, we have made significant strides increasing the number of systems that CheckMyCCTV is compatible with and now support over 25 brands, including: Dedicated Micros, Xtralis, Samsung, Dallmeier, Vista, Hikvision, Genie, and Videcon, with more on the way.”

  • Test the network bandwidth of the DVR. (Are you losing the will to live now?)
