Bespoke solutions for defeating rural crime

For rural businesses, organisations and communities of all types that need to protect people, premises and property, CCTV is an invaluable asset. Whatever the line of business, farmers, landowners and all rural entrepreneurs looking to protect established or diversify their commercial interests, have a need to protect investments.

iC2 CCTV and integrated security solutions help make rural businesses and communities more secure. Our integrated systems enhance security by blending CCTV with other security elements such as access control of doors, gates and barriers, fire and intruder alarms, and public address systems. Automated remote monitoring and alerting enables detection of unwelcome activity and lets emergency response be prioritised in a timely and appropriate fashion.

Privacy can be a contentious issue, so that’s why iC2’s integrated security solutions are designed, installed and operated in compliance with all applicable regulatory codes and guidance.

This includes:

The HSE for powered gates and barriers and all installation work for security solutions

Information Commissioner’s Office enforcement of the DPA as applied to CCTV imagery

The forthcoming GDPR information security standard

Advanced features including HD cameras, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), facial recognition and software analytics are powerful tools for defeating criminals seeking ‘easy pickings off the land’.

Avoid pitfalls such as ‘cowboys’ and compliance failure

There is a need for a balanced approach to providing security while protecting privacy, indeed, it is one of the hottest topics of our time. This is why compliance with all applicable codes is so important. However, currently the CCTV industry escapes ‘proper’ regulation, and like all unregulated industries the experience of many buyers is of ‘cowboy’ installers selling inappropriate systems backed with poor service.

Whether it’s well-intentioned ‘one-man bands’ with limited resources, cowboys hawking inferior products, or large security companies that are behind the curve when it comes to adopting new technologies, the fact is that many suppliers fail to self-regulate and adhere to best practice. They simply cannot provide up to date advice and deliver value through supplying and supporting the most appropriate solutions.

Avoid these pitfalls by using a name trusted by customers and respected by its peers and the wider security community. Choose iC2 as the security partner for your rural business or community.

In 2017, it emerged that the criminal act of fly-tipping was costing UK councils a massive £58 million a year in clean-up costs, with upwards of one million incidents per year. Councils across the UK have implemented integrated CCTV monitoring systems in high-risk areas as a means of identifying and prosecuting offenders, often leading to higher rates of prosecution and fewer incidences overall.


Home owners enjoy peace of mind with integrated security featuring brand new Full HD Wi-Fi cameras. Simple to use, these wireless network systems offer internal and external options for the security monitoring needs of your residential property. Our installation service includes NSI certification, which often reduces insurance costs.
