County Durham’s leading hotel and golf resort, Ramside Hall, invited Hadrian Technology to consult on the high definition surveillance system required for its Golf Club, which last year opened a new championship golf course.
The 18-hole ‘Cathedral Course’ – named in honour of nearby Durham Cathedral – joins Ramside’s original Prince Bishops Course, further enhancing its reputation as a top golfing destination in the North East.
The new golf course is part of a £15m development at Ramside Hall, which includes a 47-room expansion of the hotel, construction of 34 executive residential homes, a new health club, gym, spa, restaurant and beauty salon.
Hadrian Technology, which has substantial experience in providing CCTV solutions for clients in the leisure sector, recommended and installed High Definition Serial Digital Interface (HD-SDI) cameras, which enable monitoring of the Golf Club from anywhere in the world via laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Network-based HD-SDI cameras can send and receive data via a computer network and the internet, providing excellent image quality.
Gary Trotter, general manager at Hadrian Technology, said: “After an in-depth consultation with the directors at Ramside Hall, we were delighted to be commissioned to create a bespoke CCTV system for this premium development.
“Ramside Hall identified that the welfare of its golf club members was of utmost importance, so a CCTV system was needed that would suit the busy nature of the club with members continually coming and going. We are pleased to have installed a system that has met their requirements, and will allow the directors to monitor and analyse high definition footage from wherever they are.”
Helen Roseberry, director at Ramside Hall, commented: “It is an exciting time at Ramside with extensive development work taking place, so we recognised the need to implement high quality security systems to protect our investment.
“Our new CCTV system has far exceeded our expectations in terms of image quality and the ease of use – the fact we can see the crystal clear footage from our tablets when off-site or in another part of the complex is already proving extremely useful.
“Hadrian Technology has been a pleasure to work with. The team took the time to understand exactly what we needed, and we were impressed by not only the solution they provided but also by how smoothly the installation went. We hope to continue our relationship with the company as we progress with the development of the resort, and are already looking into introducing the same technology to our new spa complex.”
