Clitheroe Town Council step up their security.

Clitheroe Town Council recently contacted #teamGBIS via a recommendation from an existing customer, to install an access control system at their town centre offices. The installation of Paxton access control and Comelit door entry systems gives authorised staff the facility to control and identify visitors via audio verification. Once the identity of a visitor has been established, staff can grant access using an electric door release mechanism, helping to safeguard both the general public and on-site staff.

Local charity PAC are serious about security

Local charity, Positive Action in the Community (PAC) recently called upon #teamGBIS  to help them secure one of their premises in Colne, Lancashire.   The installation of IP CCTV and a monitored intruder alarm will allow authorised staff to remotely log in to their cameras, view live footage anytime from anywhere and capture high quality images.  Whilst the monitored intruder alarm will instantly notify both keyholders and the local police of any alarm activation on the premises.
