Monitored CCTV Case Study – Solar Farm Security

Remote CCTV monitoring system for a Solar Farm

The Background

Safeguard Systems were approached by a leading solar O&M provider to complete a security system assessment on a solar site in South Wales.


This was following reports of the security system functioning incorrectly.


The security system in place was a remotely monitored CCTV system consisting of 28 cameras and four CCTV servers. The site was split across two separate solar fields.


  • Field one having 15 Cameras and


  • Field two having 13 Cameras.

Solar site security cameras

What We Did

Safeguard Systems had a team of technicians attend the site and complete a full assessment. Upon review, Safeguard Systems’ team of engineers found a multitude of issues.


It was apparent the security system was in an incredibly poor state with only two of the four CCTV servers functioning, and only six of the 28 cameras working. Most cameras were not functioning due to cable damage across the site.


The CCTV cabinet was incredibly disorganised displaying poor workmanship. Additionally, the mains AC and low voltage cabling had been run in together within the ducting.


Due to the number of irreparable issues, the only way to move forward was for Safeguard Systems to implement a full system upgrade.


Following the acceptance of the quotation, Safeguard Systems returned to site in April 2020 to commence the installation of the upgraded perimeter security System.

The Outcome

Safeguard Systems upgraded all 28 security cameras from analogue to IP, re-cabled the entire site with more robust Steel Wire Armoured cabling, and upgraded the existing faulty CCTV recorders with advanced analytic CCTV servers.


The new system provides high definition video footage and a far superior retention period allowing the customer to review it as far back as 3 months.


This system is connected to a central monitoring station which provides the site with 24/7 monitoring.


The installation was installed on time and on budget.
