Increasing Safety and Security Both On and Off Trains

Nexus was experiencing major problems with crime and threats to the safety of the general public and their staff.

The Solution

Synectics Security created an innovative solution by installing state-of-the-art CCTV and help points in each station and the surrounding environments, integrated and delivered through Nexus’ high-capacity network to create a virtual matrix across the Nexus estate.

After liaising with five local authorities and the police to create a fully integrated and supported security network, we delivered a surveillance system across all stations monitored at the central Metro control room, enabled with priorities determined to allow control of cameras from any control facility.
