“We spec and supply the equipment, service and maintain it as part of the contract so there are no hidden or unexpected costs,” said Paul Cameron, who adds that the latest technology offers a number of enhanced functions. Analytics systems, for example, can assess the likelihood of an image being an intruder, reducing the risk of false alerts triggered by animals or overhanging foliage. Video transmissions are monitored round-the-clock by a central station and staff can issue audio warnings and challenges. An online portal also enables a site to be viewed on a mobile phone.

“The beauty of electronic systems is their reliability,” said Paul Cameron. “The cameras work 24/7, they are monitored remotely and the police response can be rapid, whereas with manned security there can be a risk of people getting delayed or not turning up for work at all. Technology-based services are more efficient.” One hirer that has already used FRG’s site security re-hire service is Charles Wilson Engineers, which has deployed equipment at a project in Hull.

“We believe we are the first company to offer a security equipment re-hire service like this,” said Paul Cameron. “We do the site surveys

and risk assessments, and there is no obligation on a hirer or their customer. If a contract does go ahead we can invoice the hirer for them to add their margin, and invoice their customer direct, or we can invoice the client and give the hirer a financial incentive.

“We basically want to make it as easy as possible. We believe it is a logical extension to their normal service: when a customer comes on to hire a generator, lighting and welfare equipment for a new site, the hirer just has to ask if they have thought about site security. And if they are interested, we will do the rest.”
