Zodiac Security have recently been able to help and protect Frome Memorial Theatre with a HD CCTV System.

Statue at Frome Memorial Theatre

Statue at Frome Memorial Theatre








To mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War One, A statue of Sgt Charlie Robbins, a World War One soldier, hidden on a Somerset trading estate for years, has been moved and dedicated. The statue has been moved from outside the old Singer building, on the Marston Trading Estate, to the Frome Memorial Garden outside the town’s Memorial Theatre.

As part of the relocation task, Zodiac Security Ltd were asked to install a 2 camera external HD CCTV system to cover and protect the statue 24 hours a day to deter and prevent any damage or vandalism to the statue.

Each external dome incorporates infra red lighting to allow for viewing no matter what the lighting levels are outside the theatre and are vandal resistant to ensure no damage can be done to any of the cameras. The cctv cameras link to a HD digital video recorder that records 24 hours per day to provide constant monitoring of the statue.

CCTV warning signs have also been fixed in various locations around the theatre to warn any persons on the property that they are being recorded for both safety and security purposes.


HD CCTV systems, more affordable than you think!!

HD CCTV at an affordable price

If you’re thinking of getting a CCTV system installed then you want the best picture possible don’t you??? the problem was that to get the best picture you had to go digital with an IP CCTV system and that came with a big price!!!

But what if there was an alternative? a full 1080P HD CCTV system for the cost of a regular analogue CCTV system? now that’s something interesting isn’t it!!!

At Zodiac Security we are able to offer up a solution using HD SDI CCTV cameras, these use traditional cabling (co-ax) and are a lot lower cost that a digital HD IP CCTV cameras but with the same picture quality!!!. Below is a screenshot of one of the cameras when viewed from a remote PC (more of that later)


That sounds fantastic I hear you cry!!! but what else can it do???

Well there’s a couple of major bonuses to our new HD SDI CCTV system:

  1. As it uses traditional CCTV cabling you can easily upgrade your existing analogue system to this new HD CCTV system using all the old cabling – keeping the price even lower!!!
  2. If you have broadband where the CCTV system is being installed then your new CCTV systems can be connected to it and you will then be able to view it remotely from PC’s, laptops, tablets or smartphones. You’ll even be able to playback all the video remotely that has been recorded. The two images in the post show the HD system viewed remotely during the day and at night)

Insurance and Security Systems

A guest blog post by Steve Redwood of Harper Dolman & West Insurance Ltd – Insurance brokers in Somerset.

We all work very hard to build our business or personal assets and whilst the expense of paying for Insurance may not be the highlight of everyone’s year, the comfort blanket of having suitable cover does calm the nerves.

insurance and security systems

does your insurance cover you?

If you are unfortunate enough to be the victim of a crime or suffer damage then naturally this is when the benefit of insurance comes in to its own. At this point you don’t want to find out that your Insurer will not pay because you are not complying with the terms of the policy, so take action now to ensure you are protected.

In many cases, especially business policies where business stock is held or for private residents where high values contents are owned, Insurers may insist upon a certain level of security to include window and door locks, safe, alarms and CCTV. The detail of these requirements will be fully disclosed by your Insurer when you accept the quotation and at every renewal. If you use an Insurance Broker they will ensure you are made aware of these requirements.

With regards to Alarms systems and CCTV, the level of security that is required by an Insurer will vary depending on the nature and size of the risk.  With regards to fire and security systems, the Insurer will always ask for a system to be supported by an annual maintenance agreement managed by a contractor approved by a governing body such as SSAIB or NSI (National Security Inspectorate). If you have a requirement to have an increased level of security then discuss these requirements with an approved security contractor, such as Zodiac Security, and they will ensure your system meets the requirements set by your Insurer.

If you have not checked your Insurance requirements then you should do this immediately.  If you want independent advice on your Insurance requirements then speak to a local independent broker such as ourselves or the BIBA website who will assist you in finding your local independent broker.

For all your insurance requirements Zodiac Security recommend that you speak to Harper Dolman & West Insurance Ltd

So what’s the solution?

wireless cctv and alarm system

A wireless burglar alarm that sends CCTV images to your smartphone

Our latest wireless burglar alarm system is a state-of-the-art 2-way wireless security system designed for domestic and small commercial properties and provides much more than a standard burglar alarm system.

The system allows visual confirmation of an alarm activation via the secure smartphone app (or a web browser if you prefer) which enables home and business owners to control their alarm systems remotely (set and unset) as well as view real-time CCTV images taken inside the premises with the wireless PIR camera detector.

In the event of an alarm activation, the PIR camera is automatically activated and captures a series of CCTV images that it sends to you, the owner via the secure app. This enables you to view the images and confirm if there is a crime or break in happening.

The wireless burglar alarm system can be also be enhanced and added to with a wide range of security devices that can provide additional protection against theft as well as protection against environmental hazards and fire detection.

Upgrade your existing CCTV to HD

Affordable, cost effective HD CCTV Systems and CCTV upgrades.

Have you ever looked at your CCTV system and the images/video it produces and thought “I cant make out what that is” or “I wish it was a lot clearer”

Well the answer is at hand and its more affordable than you think!!! Existing CCTV systems can now be easily upgraded to HD CCTV for crystal clear images


HD CCTV systems, more affordable than you think!!

Traditionally, if you wanted an HD CCTV system you would have to install a whole new data network (or hope that the building already had one that could cope with the HD CCTV) and then use an expensive IP megapixel CCTV camera that would be viewed on the internal IT network. This can be very costly and affect the performance of the IT network around the building.

But I already have a CCTV system so what can I do with that? I hear you ask?

Well this is the beauty of our latest CCTV system, commonly known as HD-SDI, we are able to use all of the existing co-ax cabling and power supplies of your existing analogue CCTV system and just replace the CCTV Cameras and Digital Recorder with our HD- SDI range of CCTV, greatly saving on both labour costs and equipment costs.

The end result being that you now have an excellent, crystal clear HD CCTV system with no affect on your IT Network or any cabling requirements so no office or décor disruption.

So if you are unhappy with your existing CCTV system or would like a new HD CCTV system installed in your office or work premises then please feel free to contact us via our contact page or via the side tab on this page

CCTV Documentation

Is your CCTV documentation correct and up to scratch?

Having the correct documents for your CCTV system is extremely important to ensure that it is being used correctly, however most systems installed do not have the necessary and required documentation for the CCTV system:

Some of the documents that should be available to the CCTV system are:

  • Staff Training Records
  • Who has Access Records (remote and local)
  • Data Request Records
  • Data Removal Records
  • Staff Acceptance of CCTV (if applicable)
  • CCTV Warning Signs (stating the purpose of the CCTV system)
  • A Regular Maintenance Agreement / Contract
  • A full and detailed specification of the system

If you do not have the above documentation it may affect both your insurance and the potential to use your CCTV system for evidence and prosecution purposes.

If you would like Zodiac Security to carry out a free security evaluation of your CCTV system to ensure that it complies with all the required standards necessary then please use the side tab to contact us.
