Notting Hill Genesis is one of the largest housing associations in London and the south-east. With head offices in Kings Cross, and five further site locations requiring protection for more than 1,500 office based staff, Amthal has worked with Cloudview to take responsibility for security maintenance across the office portfolio, alongside ensuring the safety and security of residents in new and existing housing stock.
The new system removes the need for digital video recorders and allow authorised personnel instant and secure remote access for management or evidential footage stored as required in case of a threat or emergency.
Suki Kahlon, Office Services Manager, Central Services for Notting Hill Genesis says: “The need to update CCTV systems to ensure compliance with latest GDPR regulations was of paramount importance, both for the Notting Hill Genesis team, and also our residents and their safety.
Essentially our ambition is that wherever we have CCTV systems in place, we want to upgrade to the cloud and bring our networks together in a centrally managed, visual data infrastructure. The Cloudview solution has been well received by building managers and authorised personnel, and being simple to install with Amthal minimising downtime, provides remote access across our housing portfolio as and when required for all our safety and security.”
Notting Hill Genesis, together with Amthal’s installation and maintenance teams, has completed the install at its head office in Kings Cross and West London office in Hammersmith, alongside new housing development connections.
The new surveillance technology is created to offer alerts when instant action is required, based on what is identified as a threat. Visual data can be accessed anywhere at any time on any device and shared immediately and saved for up to 12 months if required, with 30 day delete options as standard to comply with GDPR. It is only accessible by authorised personnel all with audit control capability, for full compliance.
