NW Systems’ RemoteManager set to capture redevelopment of King’s Reach Tower London

NW Systems Group's RemoteManager end-to-end video monitoring solution has been selected by London based developer CIT which begins work this month on one of London's largest redevelopments at King's Reach Tower, South Bank.

RemoteManager's high resolution video monitoring service is being been used to cover the redevelopment of the site which will take three years. Four floors will be added to the existing tower, increasing its height by 16 metres to 127 metres. The new development will be home to 173 luxury apartments, 370,000 square feet of office space and 72,000 square feet of retail.

NW Systems has used three Mobotix M24M high resolution 3 Mega Pixel surveillance cameras, each fitted with 90 degree lenses. The cameras have been fitted on the roof top of Rennie Court - an adjacent residential tower block, overlooking the site.

All cameras are networked using a secure high speed 3G cellular Broadband connection to the internet. The cameras also hold 32GB of local storage capacity on in-built MicroSD cards providing an element of redundancy for rare occasions where connectivity is lost.

It is anticipated that NW Systems' RemoteManager service will provide a high resolution time lapse video based on images collected over the course of each phase of construction project.

Steve Riddell, director at CIT said:
"We will use RemoteManager's video footage to keep all stakeholders abreast of the progress of the multiple phases of redevelopment over the next three years."

Frank Crouwel, managing director, NW Systems Group, said:
"We are very proud that RemoteManager was selected as the right solution to help CIT keep track of London's most exciting redevelopment project right now."

Remote Manager is a unique, yet tailorable high resolution video monitoring service offering system design, installation, wireless or wired connectivity and full hosting of live video and captured images 24/7/365 for the entire length of any construction or refurbishment project.

For the last hundred years, the desk phone has been a staple of every business. The landline has been a lifeline to customers and colleagues as the primary means of communication – even as email threatened to render the telephone obsolete.

With all due respect and apologies to Mr. Alexander Graham Bell, the desk phone is becoming just one solution, out of many devices, used for the modern...

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.
