CCTV

Purpose of the system
The system has been installed by the auction company with the primary purpose of prevention, investigation and detection of crime and monitoring of the security and safety of people and premises at the hall.

The CCTV system

The system comprises: Fixed position cameras; Pan Tilt Zoom cameras (PTZ); Monitors: Multiplexers; digital recorder; Public information signs.

Cameras will be located at strategic points. No camera will be hidden from view.

All cameras are monitored from main reception, although they may be monitored remotely by selected staff.

Signs will be placed at strategic points and at the entrance to the building to inform members of the public that a CCTV installation is in use.

The system does not guarantee that it will detect every incident taking place within the area of coverage.

The CCTV system will be in operation during the setting up of the auction and on auction day’s.


Recording
Digital recordings are made using digital video recorders operating in real time mode.
Images will normally be retained 90 day’s (3 monthly auction) from the date of recording, and then automatically over written.
