Bunyip Fire Brigade otherwise known as CFA Bunyip was established in 1945 and still serving the Bunyip Community and surrounds with a commitment to safety and the preservation of life.
Bunyip Fire Brigade Project
Bunyip Fire Brigade contacted Eclipse Security Systems asking for recommendations on the improvement and upgrade of security to their buildings. The main building is the Station where the trucks, office and conference room are located and to the rear of the station there is the shed is where equipment is stored. The clients brief was simply to provide the best security solution so that their building was protected and could be monitored from a remote location. This would enable the Station Managers the ability to view and monitor the station at all times.
Smart Alarm System was the first layer of protection that was installed in the shed where much of the equipment is stored. Wireless camera detectors which take snapshots and push images to the cloud. System administrators can view and receive notifications when the detectors are activated by movement. Notification are sent to administrators mobile devices, the administrator can then login to the systems for view snap shots, verify the alarm is not a false alarm and either respond or contact Victoria Police. CCTV Cameras were installed internally and externally so that the building could be monitored remotely in real-time.
Eclipse Security Systems Donation
Bunyip Community had been hit hard with the recent fires that devastated the area, people had lost their homes & businesses, thankfully no lives were lost. Matt Trofa, Eclipse Security Consultant who managed the project, lives in the area himself and had been evacuated from his newly built home in Bunyip just weeks after moving into his new home.
He knew how important the Bunyip Fire Brigade is to the local community and had recommended that an Access Control System would be a great asset to the station but not possible within their budget. Protecting the local community and supporting local businesses is important to Eclipse Security Systems and therefore Greg Flood, (Director of Eclipse Security) decided to donate the Access Control System, installation and integration.
