  16. Important Conditions to be aware of before deployment and client responsibilities

    The Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower has a default detection range of 30 meters in each direction.

    The Techniguard CCTV tower is designed to encompass a circular area of 30 meters meaning any motion inside this area will immediately be detected by our monitoring station and reacted upon relevantly.

    Anything outside of the 30-meter radius will appear on camera but any movement WILL NOT BE DETECTED BY THE MOTION SENSORS (PIR’S).

    For this reason only equipment placed inside of the detection area will be monitored by the Techniguard CCTV System. It is the Clients responsibility to ensure all equipment is placed within detection range of the unit and no responsibility will be accepted by Techniguard for loss of equipment not done so.

    16.2 Lighting on site and its effect on the Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower.

    The Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower is designed to work in low light conditions effortlessly however strong lighting on site at night – I/E Flood lights shining directly into the tower will drastically reduce picture quality and vision from the cameras. It is your responsibility as the end user to make sure any and all lighting is placed in such a way that it does not directly affect the operation of the Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower.

    16.3 Grounds keeping and its effect on the Techniguard CCTV Tower.

    The Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower is designed to operate in areas where the only motion detected will most likely be an intruder, however under certain conditions I/E Poor weather, over grown bushes and tree movements may cause false activations and hinder the rapid deployment CCTV towers ability to identify correctly motion or intruders on site.

    To avoid false activations, it is the responsibility of the client to ensure that any plant life or equipment liable to blow around in the wind etc... is kept trimmed back and doesn’t affect the direct vision of equipment that you want the Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower to monitor and protect.

    16.4 Fuel Cell Cartridge refuelling and responsibility

    In the event a Techniguard Fuel Cell Is opted for to power the CCTV Tower, Sabre Guarding Limited will replenish this to maintain the operation of the tower. However, in certain cases where extreme distance to site is a factor the client will accept the responsibility of refuelling the fuel cell system. In this case you the client or a client appointed representative from the company are responsible for correctly changing the Fuel Cartridge, ensuring that the unit is reset and that the fuel cell correctly registers the cartridge and re securing the panel opened correctly with all screws tightened.

    16.5 Exceeding Data Allowance on the Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower

    The Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower is designed to work using a 3G/4G connection meaning that a data Allowance is in place. The first 10 GB per month of data is covered in your Towers hire cost which generally will never be exceeded by the monitoring station through standard day to day use. However, should there be excessive activations or usage of the data bundle by the client opting to monitor the tower in house or misusing the App causing it to exceed the 10 GB mark you, the client, will be charged at the standard rate for data amounts exceeding the 10 GB data allowance and be responsible for any and all costs incurred by the excessive data usage.

    We recommend allowing the Monitoring station to monitor the system rather than personal use.

    16.6 External Generator/Mains Power usage with the Techniguard CCTV Tower

    The Techniguard rapid deployment CCTV tower is designed to work effortlessly with both an external generator and/or 110v/240v external mains power. however it is the responsibility of you the client or a trained authorised representative of the clients company who are hiring the Techniguard CCTV Tower to maintain a constant power supply to the Techniguard CCTV Tower.

No responsibility will be accepted by Techniguard for failure to maintain power to the CCTV tower or attached equipment Sabre will accept no responsibility for loss or damage of property under the CCTV Towers protection in the event that diesel generators run dry of fuel or if mains power is disconnected allowing the Towers internal batteries to run dry with out charge.
