Intrusion Detection System Case Study

TAG Systems were approached by the original Project Manager of the A45 By-Pass Project, Nick Wilde, in late spring of 2016. The brief was clear; Balfour Beatty needed a security system to protect their storage compounds running alongside an extensive length of the M1 between Leicester and Northampton during a major civil engineering exercise to improve infrastructure along this stretch of motorway. The Balfour Beatty Account Manager at Speedy Services, Steven Bradshaw and Territory Sales Rep, Stuart Jefferies immediately consulted their Partnered Services Wireless Security Solutions Specialists.

TAG was able to suggest the use of a rapidly deployable comprehensive and cost-effective system comprising our Hybrid CCTV Tower and intruder detection. With the CCTV powered by a battery system topped-up and charged using trickle charge from generator or mains power the solution met all of the customer’s needs.

Tag Systems Hybrid Tower CCTV & Intruder Detection Systems the perfect solution.

  • Inclusive maintenance contract
  • Ideally suited to remote or challenging locations
  • Fully monitored in our 24/7 central alarm receiving centre


  • Duty of care to staff and propertCase Study_Balfour Beatty-Davenrty_v1.indd
  • Health & Safety regulations
  • Integrated CCTV visual verification with alarm detection
  • Meeting the changing dynamics, logistical and operational challenges faced on site

Ultimately Balfour Beatty would be creating eight linked compounds which, once electricity is installed and broadband supplied; they wanted complete oversight of by a single Project Manager. The connectivity would allow a total overview of the site, managing deliveries, access and staff welfare – all in one complete package.

The first Hybrid Tower was installed in March 2016 and the roll-out of additional Security will remain in-line with programme as works progress, currently estimated to be at full strength by Autumn/Winter 2016. At which time there will be a x4 CCTV and Intruder Detection system on each compound wirelessly linking all eight sites. To detect unwanted intruders this is a preventative measure to provide a complete security system and offer the peace of mind for the whole project team.
