Today, we have launched a new RemoteManager website. Take a look at www.remotemanager.com.
Our RemoteManager web camera system for construction projects has been a big success since it was launched in 2005. The RemoteManager camera system has been used on hundreds of projects over the years, including many landmark developments such Westfield London Shopping Centre, Royal Festival Hall (Southbank Centre), the Trafford Centre and Spinningfield projects in Manchester, and the Liverpool One and Cardiff St David’s city centre regeneration projects.
RemoteManager also continues to be used on many new school builds and housing developments with Balfour Beatty, Lend Lease, Carillion and Barratt Homes deploying the service on new projects continuously.
Using the latest camera and imaging technologies available, RemoteManager remains at the forefront of automated time-lapse photography and image archival. This, combined with full mobile compatibility and RemoteManager’s live video streaming capability, makes the service stand out in quality and usability, continuing to provide the construction industry with best-in-class hosted video product around. See for yourself on the new RemoteManager website: www.remotemanager.com.
Contractor Land Lease has commissioned NW Systems to install a camera system powered solely by wind and solar energy.
The system will be placed to monitor the construction of the new Mearns Academy Community Campus, a £23m secondary school development in Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire. The system will provide networked connectivity via 3G and is due to be operational early March 2013.
HW Property’s huge development of a disused power station on the north bank of the River Thames is being viewed by HW executives in Hong Kong. NW installed a Sony network camera system with wireless capability to overlook the large-scale 1.5 acre project that will convert the old power station into modern, high-end housing, office and retail outlets.
The hi-res system will provide video images in real-time as well as full camera control allowing HK-based managers to follow build progress in detail by zooming in onto various key aspects across the site.
NW Systems is a Certified Sony Partner.
Civil Engineering company BAM Nuttall has ordered NW Systems to integrate an IP-based CCTV and access control system for its branch in Winsford, Cheshire. Using a combination of Axis, Sony and Mobotix cameras and Paxton door controllers on a Milestone-based platform, the system will be easily manageable for BAM’s managers.
High quality, low light network cameras will be sighted on optimum vantage points across the site to provide full, high definition video surveillance of all comings and goings and work activity on site. Using Milestone Mobile, site managers will also have the possibility of accessing the system remotely, via iPad and Android tablets.
NW Systems provided the system design and has won the instruction for its implementation.
Having worked with NW at their British Salt site in Cheshire, TATA has commissioned NW Systems for the implementation of a networked Axis-Milestone CCTV system at their new Northwich head office.
High Definition cameras with Lightfinder technology for optimum video quality day and night will be linked to various monitoring stations on the network, ensuring immediate alerting of security guards.
NW advised on and designed the system and is commissioned to perform its implementation.
NW Systems is an Axis Gold Solutions and Milestone Platinum partner.
Sterling Thermal, an expert firm in combustion and heat transfer technology, has instructed NW to expand its IP network and add more Arecont 20 megapixel surround video cameras in its Aylesbury production plant.
A series of 8 megapixel Arecont cameras were initially installed mid 2011. With the expansion of its works, Sterling requires video coverage of its enlarged floor space and opted for high resolution 20 megapixel cameras. Its large open factory is ideal for use of such cameras, keeping camera count and installation cost down whilst benefitting from full area coverage in minute detail.
The smart set up of its video system means that the cameras are providing high security 24/7 whilst Sterling’s customers are enabled to view the production of their orders in real-time.
NW is a certified Arecont partner and advised Sterling Thermal on the project and its implementation.
Established in February 2012 with investment from Sainsbury’s and other institutional investors, Tamar Energy is planning to build 44 renewable energy plants using waste from agricultural sources, the food processing industry and waste from households. The first such plant is being built at Holbeach Hurn, Lincolnshire in partnership with QV Foods, with the plant to be operational in the second half of 2013.
To promote its high tech, green credentials, Tamar Energy has commissioned NW Systems to install a RemoteManager camera system to overlook the build with a live stream, whilst the system is also taking high-res snapshots every hour to create promotional images and a time lapse movie for further marketing of the technology.
RemoteManager professional web cams offer HD quality images and video of build and construction projects whilst live streams can be made available via Broadband, 3G and in a stand-alone fashion using wind and solar energy.
Barratt Homes, one of the UKs premiere residential house builders, has worked with NW to implement a 3G-based video-over-ip system for traffic monitoring at a residential development close to Emirates Stadium in North London.
The landowners, London & Quadrant Group, teamed up with Barratt Homes on the £26 million purchase of the landmark private development site on Queensland Road, close to Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium. The £128 million project will feature 375 private homes across three residential towers.
During this three year regeneration project, Barratt require a camera system for monitoring a shared access road on the site. NW installed a Mobotix camera system using 3G connectivity, allowing Barratt to monitor and record traffic flows with minimal network infrastructure and hardware needed on site.
The video system helps Barratt to manage traffic on the access road whilst work is going on, to keep vehicles moving and avoid trucks obstructing the road. It is a good example of how video can be used effectively in management tasks.
Should Barratt need any further information regarding an incident or queue caused, they can easily retrieve footage and take it up with the party responsible for causing the blockage.

The vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Professor Andrew Hamiliton, hosted the opening of the new access road to Begbroke Science Park on the 18th April and likened the opening of the road with the symbolic way in which “companies begin their road to success.” The new road will enable expansion of the academic and commercial research work and development on the site, enabling the university to continue to lead the way in innovation and novel developments that are vital for economic devlopment in the UK.
As part of the park’s improvement project, NW was commissioned to upgrade the existing surveillance system with the installation of Arecont high resolution, panaromic IP cameras around the site. The 180° and 360° views provided by the Arecont cameras ideally matched the university’s requirements to attain maximum visual coverage of the park without being overtly security conscious.
Access to the system and its recordings is being managed through Milestone Systems’ XProtect VMS software, maintained and managed by Begbroke’s IT support team, which allows the university to retain ownership of the system’s operation and performance.
The Begbroke Science Park is a University managed science park which conducts academic research, as well as providing space for new high tech start up companies. To find out more visit www.begbroke.ox.ac.uk.
Facing uneconomical update requirements to their analogue CCTV system, Coombe Girls’ School decided that moving to a network-based CCTV solution would better suit their needs.
The school approached us with a clear brief to deliver:
- extended coverage of the school grounds and sports fields
- greater in-house ownership of the system’s management and running on a day-to-day basis
- scalability for potential expansion in the future
- improved overall picture quality by adopting hi-res technology
- greater flexibility and access using software instead of recorders
