The Wakefield Grammar School Foundation wanted to install a CCTV system on its campus to add an extra layer of security.

To instill a sense of security among students and staff, the school opted for Tyco’s solution with an integrated system that included video recording, access control, and high-resolution cameras managed and configured using a single hardware platform.

Wakefield Grammar wanted to go beyond building security and have the capacity to monitor and secure the entire perimeter of its substantial campus in northern England.


Easy-to-use and Cost-effective Solution for Enhanced School Security

To monitor and secure the perimeter, the school chose Tyco’s integrated security package that optimized performance, simplified deployment, and saved time and money.

  • Network Video Recorders (NVRs) enhance security with comprehensive video recording solutions that offer unlimited scalability and better performance. These integrated and hybrid NVRs can provide real-time email notifications and improve response time to critical events.
  • Video Management Systems effectively monitor video, audio, and data in real time. This reduces review time and allows security staff to conduct investigations efficiently.
  • Security and Event Management enables businesses to better safeguard their infrastructures with customization options for their specific needs.
  • IP Cameras provide various viewing angles, including a horizontal view and a corridor mode, to monitor all areas of infrastructure. They’re ideal for retail stores, commercial buildings, healthcare facilities, banks, and others.


Installation of Tyco’s integrated security solution generated immediate benefit in terms of image quality and coverage. In fact, it helped the school to detect and report a trespassing incident on the campus.

The high degree of integration enabled the school's security team to manage and configure both video and access control from a single hardware platform for a complete and cost-effective solution.

The school is planning to explore more capabilities of the Tyco solution in the future.
