Leigh Visual has had significant success in establishing close relationships with customers that require complex security systems.
Leigh Visual can provide a high level of design and engineering expertise and some of our clients requiring this expertise include the NHS, Universities and Government Institutions. Our goal is to work closely with our clients to ensure that we understand their business and their security requirements. We will always recommend the most cost-effective solution, whether this is a security system or, for example, a simple operational change.
Leigh Visual has worked with the NHS since 1994 and currently looks after the CCTV and Access Control requirements of a number of NHS Acute Trusts across the South of England.

Systems typically comprise 500+ access control doors and 200+ CCTV cameras across multiple sites, and are usually covered by a 4-hour 365-day call-out service contract.

In a bid to reduce cross-contamination some Trusts are turning to facial recognition systems as a means of access control. No physical contact is required and the technology is now robust enough to provide a credible alternative to proximity card systems. Most Trusts do still however use proximity cards as they can double up as an ID card, and they are inexpensive.

In the education sector Access Control cards are the preferred solution, as they can accommodate multiple technologies enabling cashless vending, photocopying, library usage and PC logon control, as well as ID and Access Control.

Due to the transitory nature of the student population and the large numbers involved (usually tens of thousands), proximity cards provide the optimal solution. They can be pre-prepared before the student arrives on campus, and can be managed centrally or locally at each university site.

Leigh Visual has counted the UK Government as a client for 25 years. Across a wide variety of sectors, the requirement for a robust electronic security solution delivered on time and within budget has remained unchanged.

Security industry accreditation and a recognised quality standard are the minimum requirements necessary to become an approved supplier. A track record of delivering high quality system design and equipment, and the ability to work collaboratively with architects, builders and the client is essential.

Ensuring public resources are invested in the most efficient manner is a priority, based on clear value for money advice, and industry best practice provides the framework for a consistently high-quality solution across all departments.
