Project Background

Cygnet Hospital near Stevenage, Herts is a purpose designed hospital facility. It was built to designated medium secure specifications, to maintain a comfortable and therapeutic environment. The philosophy of the site is the promotion of relational security which is supported by robust physical security arrangements.

Over the recent years Tindall Security has been chosen to design and install an extensive security system for the site. This included intruder alarm and access control systems, internal and external CCTV, panic alarms, audio entry and vehicle barriers.


Our installation of internal and external CCTV cameras enables the centre to closely monitor entry and movement both within the building and the grounds.

We installed new external, fully functional, pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras to cover the garden, football pitch and rear entrance.

In total there are over 60 cameras operating on the site. We have installed additional fixed dome cameras and fixed cameras, both internally and externally, including high level post fixed cameras. We were able to reduce costs by utilising some existing fixed cameras.

We installed a new bank of DVR’s and monitors in the control /reception room.

The security fencing is also linked to the CCTV system. Should the fencing be interfered with, the camera covering that area will be shown as a full screen image.
