Rob Place — owner of the Sun Inn at Newbottle, near Houghton-le-Spring, County Durham — can now watch full HD quality CCTV footage of his premises on his iPad, via a specially-designed app.
The technology can list any ‘events’ such as disturbances or break-ins, by date and time, and provide alerts via email, if there is movement in a particular area of
a building or grounds.
The viewer can then instantly view footage — live or recorded — to check to see if there is a genuine problem or if it is a false alarm and take action accordingly.
Rob Place said: “Knowing everything is running safely and smoothly gives me the peace of mind I need.
“I can even look at my event lists — which show live footage or playback, while recording — from the beach on holiday.”
Place said he also uses the system to monitor late supplier deliveries as he can pull up the exact date and time and send it across to the relevant company.
The system was supplied to the pub by Sunderland-based CCTV specialists Hadrian Technology.
