CHUBB Fire & Security has just been awarded a $A6 million contract to upgrade Ipswich City Council’s Safe City CCTV solution.

Mid-August 2018 Ipswich City Council sought to engage a suitably qualified and experienced organisation for the purchase, installation, replacement and maintenance of infrastructure and system components for electronic security services to Council’s Safe City branch.

Services including but not limited to cameras, network management, access control, alarm systems, electric fences, electric gates and alarm monitoring services.

Ipswich Safe City is one of Australia’s pioneering public surveillance solutions and incorporates more than 300 cameras managed by Genetec Security Center VMS.

The system has recently been enhanced in Brassall, Booval and Goodna with the installation of additional CCTV cameras as part of the staged expansion of Ipswich City Council’s Safe City network.

The expansion included 5 new utility poles, 8 new CCTV cameras and the upgrade and maintenance of existing CCTV infrastructure.
