Protecting common areas from vandalism, anti-social behaviour (ASB) and drug dealing; deterring burglary, car crime and fly-tipping. iC2 integrated security solutions make social housing safer, helping to protect communities and foster a better quality of life.

Rapid Deployment Camera solutions for safer communities

For housing organisations that need to create safer places for people to live, CCTV is an important part of the security mix. Often, when undesirable behaviours such as ASB, vandalism or drug dealing moves in, it arrives because it has been displaced from elsewhere. And is likely to stay until it is displaced once again.

In such circumstances robust, professional CCTV is often seen as the ‘go to’ solution. However, new camera projects need budget, and it is difficult to obtain funding, preventing cameras from being installed quickly.

But imagine… Suppose you had a stock of CCTV cameras that could be redeployed rapidly so that they could simply be re-sited wherever there is an urgent requirement to improve safety?

The iC2 Rapid Deployment Camera (RDC) provides effective monitoring fast, with a solution that minimises installation costs. And when it comes to capital investment, it’s difficult to ignore, because an iC2 RDC may come in at as little as one-third the cost of comparable cameras.

iC2 CCTV’s integrated security solutions help make social housing 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.

When fitted with a 360 degree fish-eye lens, iC2 Rapid Deployment Cameras overcome the limitations of conventional PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) cameras which only detect undesirable behaviour when the camera is pointing in the right direction.

iC2 cameras are robust, but under sustained and determined attack, even the most durable cameras are likely to be damaged. Equipped with automated remote monitoring and alerting enables detection of unwelcome activity such as criminal damage to cameras, allowing emergency response to be prioritised.

Areas protected by iC2 social housing security solutions

  • Common areas such as lift lobbies, landings and stairwells
  • Car parking and garage areas
  • Children’s play areas and skate parks
  • Open areas such as estates and community nature reserves

Designed with flexibility in mind
