Lantec and Hikvision provide upgraded security for River Thames Marina

 

Boats can be attractive targets for intruders, so when the Val Wyatt Marine facility on the Thames needed a high-quality video security upgrade, they turned to Lantec Security and full colour cameras enabled by Hikvision ColorVu technology.

 

Three miles south of Henley, in Wargrave, Berkshire, a stunning stretch of the River Thames is home to one of the most highly respected and trusted independent marinas in the UK. That marina, Val Wyatt Marine, was established 175 years ago, and the marina’s staff pride themselves on providing the best boating experience for new and seasoned boaters alike. They’re renowned for their knowledge, expertise, high standards and the level of care and customer service they offer.

Members of the UK’s professional boating body, British Marine, Val Wyatt Marine forms part of a group of industry leaders who are committed to promoting the enjoyment of boating. In addition to boat buying, selling, maintenance and engineering services, they provide moorings for 130 boats, and trailer boat park storage for 25 boats. Winter storage is provided either under cover or outside.

The marina site is expansive, covering a full five acres, and is just one lock away from the town of Henley-on-Thames. On the site there are riverside moorings and dry dock facilities, as well as engineering and maintenance buildings and the on-site café, The Cwtch.

When the management of Val Wyatt Marine decided that the time was right to upgrade their site security, they turned to the experts at Lantec Security. Reading-based Lantec are specialist providers of bespoke security solutions, staffed by an experienced and dedicated team of industry professionals. Their high-quality video security systems offer round-clock-protection, backed up by intruder alarm and access control technologies.

Steve Lane is Director at LanTec Security. He explains the challenge faced by his team in securing the Val Wyatt Marine site.

“It’s a big area, five acres in total, including the riverside moorings,” he says. “We needed to make sure that we could effectively protect that entire property and the boats and stock inside.”
