Red Bull FLIR CCTV Upgrade



Aston Martin Redbull Racing – AMRBR

Based in Milton Keynes UK, with over 600 employees AMRBR are recognised as one of the world's leading Formula one motor companies. With a high profile on and off the racing track, numerous world driver and manufacturers championship titles under their belt, their pedigree is second to none. AMRBR has and continues to heavily invest in its state of art research and development facility and its teams in the UK. It is well place to be a dominant force in Formula one for many years to come.


The Challenge
Having a high national and international profile with a state of the art facility at Milton Keynes Aston Martin Redbull Racing – AMRBR needed to implement the latest and technologically advanced security system to protect its people, building and intellectual property.

The site operates 24 x 7 and is the hub for international links. The site is located in an open estate, so care had to be taken to ensure CCTV cameras had maximum coverage and protection whilst remaining in keeping with existing buildings aesthetics and branding and not appearing intrusive.

As the upgrade of the existing system had to be carried out in a live environment, it was important that the least amount of disruption was created on and off-site and with minimal impact on the people carrying out their normal daily duties.

The Solution
AMRBR adopted the Flir Latitude Video management system and Flir latest release of Saros cameras as they saw this system as technologically advanced and in line with project objectives.

With 120 cameras and 24 x 7 operation, it was imperative that the system was easy to use and user interface that allowed for simple access to view, playback, search and export options.

Customisable trip lines, set for specific regions of interest, as well as triggers and alerts, have also been extensively used to automate the process so that quick response times can be achieved should an incident or breach occur. Flir Saros range of 4k HD camera has been extensively used on-site, which provides HD quality images in all areas.

"The image quality that we get from the new range of visual FLIR cameras is truly impressive."
Zoe Chilton- Head of Technical Partnerships

Check Your Security were chosen as AMRBR's integration partner to upgrade, install and support this new CCTV system; the rollout was accomplished with the minimum of disruption and to a high standard meeting all KPI's.

The Benefit
With the implementation of the Flir CCTV system, AMRDR now has a modern and technically advanced CCTV system that is highly flexible and scalable and can be viewed from multiple locations and multiple devices.

"Our Milton Keynes facility contains valuable technology and intellectual property. It is critical for us to have high-performing security processes and systems in place, so we can effectively protect our assets as well as the people who work here."
