Specialist installers, Protive Security & Surveillance Ltd. choose GJD’s D-TECT 2 and D-TECT 50 for use on the Sir Thomas Boteler School in Warrington as part of a new BS8418 compliant CCTV system featuring fixed and fully functional dome CCTV Cameras.

Twenty D-TECT’s were installed with additional D-Guard’s as extra protection for the detectors. The D-TECTS integral pan and tilt feature enabled Protive to install the detectors in the most appropriate locations at the optimum three metre mounting height.

As a CCTV monitoring station would be responding to any security alerts, the detection of genuine threats and the minimising of false alarms was an essential requirement for the system, which was the primary reason why D-TECT detectors were chosen for this application.

D-TECT 2 is a quad PIR with a programmable detection range up to 30 metres and the D-TECT 50 extends to 50 metres also featuring quad PIR technology, which can be adjusted both in range and angle to prevent boundary overspill, making them ideal for perimeter protection. All detectors have robust polyethylene covers, which conceal the direction in which the lens is looking.

Sales Director for Protive Security, Shaun Ryan commented:

“Not only are D-TECT’s probably the most performant and reliable detectors available today for threat detection and the control of CCTV cameras, but we are finding that they are easier and quicker to install and programme, especially with the new hand-held signal strength and range walk tester. This helps to reduce installation time and costs to the customer which is a win-win situation for both parties. The D-TECT’s ability to identify genuine threats, whilst minimising the potential of false alarms reduces the running costs of this monitored security system”.
