Covent Garden Market Security System Completed
G1 Ltd., a United Kingdom firm, has completed a comprehensive CCTV system that helps to protect the public areas of London’s Covent Garden Market, including entrances and exit. Situated at the eastern edge of Westminster in the heart of London, the market is visited by over 35 million people each year.
The design of the security system underwent a stringent approval process with Westminster City Council and English Heritage regarding the siting of security cameras and equipment ensuring that the 1830 building’s classical appearance – which has changed little since a Covent shopkeeper’s son named Alfred Hitchcock was growing up there – is maintained. The company installed 22 cameras from Pelco, with each camera painted with heritage colors to fit in with the aesthetics of the surroundings.
