Kingdom Systems debuts complete solar-powered CCTV tower 

Kingdom Systems EcoSolarAICCTV Tower

AS THE construction industry is urged to reduce carbon emissions and site theft soars, Tranent-based Kingdom Systems has unveiled its first ever complete solar-powered CCTV towers at ScotPlant 2022 in Edinburgh.

UK and devolved governments have introduced new rules for new homes and buildings – and their construction processes – to produce significantly less CO2 in the move towards net zero. 

In addition, UK construction site thefts and vandalism cost the industry £800million a year. In February alone, £500,000 worth of equipment and £11,000 worth of stored fuel was stolen from Scottish sites, and the recent red diesel ban amidst the fuel crisis looks set to further exacerbate the situation.

In response, Kingdom Systems – the UK leading security provider, part of Kingdom Services Group – has developed the Eco Solar AI CCTV Tower. Designed and manufactured by Kingdom Systems’ in-house engineering team, its high-performance solar panels are powered solely by the sun’s clean and renewable energy. 

Its Four 5 Megapixel bullet cameras record high-definition footage 24/7 from the Eco Solar AI CCTV Tower – offering a 360o field of vision within a 70-metre detection radius. It also provides users with the benefit of two-way multi-directional audio capability, and, for maximum efficacy and usability, its specially developed client app enables remote login to both live and historic footage. 

Manufactured from highly robust steel, they also benefit from anti-vandal casing and an anti-tamper protection system for additional peace of mind.

Crucially, this new solar-powered CCTV tower produces zero emissions and requires no external back-up power source. Nor does it compromise any features or functionality compared to hybrid and mains-powered models.  

These innovative six-metre-tall CCTV towers are live and in action on Kingdom Systems’ ScotPlant stand, as well as throughout the event’s Edinburgh venue, for enhanced security measures for visitors and exhibitors.

Kingdom Systems’ Eco Solar AI CCTV Tower launch follows the introduction, last month, of Construction Watch Scotland. A Police Scotland and Neighbourhood Watch Scotland initiative, this online platform notifies firms of construction site thefts and related offences in their area and to help protect sites against theft, vandalism and arson.

Kingdom Systems’ Daniel Henry said: “The construction industry is currently under enormous pressure in terms of sustainability targets and lost costs incurred through theft and vandalism. But there are some straightforward preventative actions that can be taken in response – and we believe our new Eco Solar AI CCTV Tower provides a robust security solution, whilst also helping our clients work towards their ESG goals.”

“ScotPlant is perfect timing for the launch of such an innovative new product – and the subsequent nationwide rollout.” 

Kingdom Systems installs, maintains and monitors temporary CCTV systems to construction sites across Scotland and the UK. Clients include Bellway Homes, Cruden Homes, Ogilvy Construction, Edinburgh-based MNM Developments, Morgan Sindall Construction, Dundas, and Hadden Construction. 

Kingdom Group has a UK-wide network of offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newton-le-Willows, Birmingham, London and Belfast. It also operates in India.
