Oncam Cameras Spotlight on London's Residential Towers

Oncam Global has designed a customized security solution for The Landmark, one of London's latest luxury residential addresses.
Boasting floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of the London skyline, this property, developed by Chalegrove Properties, consists of four towers joined by a landscaped central public piazza with convenient retailers and cafes, creating an upscale and vibrant community.
Critical to designing the security system for The Landmark was “first, understanding our key concerns and goals, as identified by security staff,” said Karim Azem, GM, Chalegrove. “Those key concerns are to protect residents, personnel and guests by stopping unauthorized visitors from gaining entry to residential areas in the luxury towers and to prevent vehicles in the car park and retail shops from vandalism and theft.”
“For example, while cameras continue live surveillance, retrospective video from all cameras can be viewed to track suspicious events; so, even thieves working in pairs or groups in different areas of the property are captured by Oncam's networked cameras, regardless of the concierge staff's focus at that time,” said Paul Stout, MD of InCam Digital Surveillance.
“Each Oncam network camera and third-party fixed and PTZ camera is situated to provide maximum coverage outside the buildings and in the central piazza, and within the luxury towers, with camera locations in the lobby areas, entrances, residents' gymnasium, underground parking area and the bicycle storage rooms,” Stout said.
Chalegrove's Azem noted that The Landmark's two concierge centers are manned 24 hours a day with staff trained by Oncam to manage all manner of situations that may arise, from typical security or liability events such as theft or destruction of property, to more serious breaches such as behavior that is harmful to residents.
