City & County of Swansea CCTV System Upgrade



The world of security solutions demands trust and collaboration as the cornerstones of success. One partnership that has exemplified this ethos for years is our valued partnership with Bosch.

Working side by side, we have seamlessly delivered innovative security solutions that have set new standards in the industry.

Our recent security upgrade project for Swansea City Council is a testament to this powerful alliance, showcasing our commitment to quality, efficiency, and excellence.


The CDS-Bosch Partnership: Where Quality Meets Innovation

We have always placed customer satisfaction as a top priority and take pride in independently recommending the best-integrated security solutions, considering quality and value.

Our longstanding partnership with Bosch, a global leader in security and technology, has been pivotal in our journey towards achieving our mission.

Bosch's market-leading products and unwavering commitment to customer service have been instrumental in our ability to deliver seamless security services.

As a result of our Premium Partnership status with Bosch, our clients benefit from the combined expertise of a global market leader channelled through the experience of our dynamic team.

This synergy translates into various advantages, including streamlined project timescales, access to cutting-edge products, and flawless integration.

The Swansea City Council CCTV Upgrade: A Showcase of Excellence

Our relationship with Swansea City Council dates back to 1997. Over the years, we have created and maintained a comprehensive CCTV system covering multiple county areas, including the Mumbles, Gorseinon, Morriston, Pontarddulais, Enterprise Park, and various car parks.

However, with the existing analogue MAXPRO system approaching its end of life, Swansea City Council initiated a tendering process to identify a vendor capable of upgrading to a new IP system. In November 2022, CDS Security Systems successfully secured the upgrade project.
Our tasks during the upgrade process ranged from building works to installing new infrastructure, including Ethernet networks, fibre optic cables, electrical distribution, lighting, suspended ceilings, flooring, and UPS power supply.

For the heart of the system, CDS supplied a video management system (VMS) by Genetec, a renowned VMS manufacturer, to control cameras and recording.

The advanced VMS system comes equipped with powerful analytics, automatic failover, and video playback capabilities.

To facilitate collaboration with the South Wales Police and various departments within Swansea Council, CDS deployed Genetec Clearance, a cloud-based video management system.

This system allows for easy and secure sharing of videos with authorised personnel, ensuring that law enforcement officials have real-time access to critical footage.


Cutting-Edge Technology: Bosch's IP PTZ Cameras Redefining Surveillance

In the realm of modern security, clarity of vision is paramount. Every detail matters when it comes to safeguarding critical assets and maintaining public safety.
Bosch's IP PTZ cameras emerged as indispensable tools, with exceptional imaging quality, offering high-resolution sensors that excel in various lighting conditions. These cameras provide precise Pan-Tilt-Zoom functionality, allowing users to remotely control the camera's orientation and zoom capabilities for real-time focus on specific areas of interest.

With optical and digital zoom, rapid and accurate movement, day/night functionality, and built-in intelligent video analytics, Bosch PTZ cameras deliver comprehensive surveillance capabilities.

They are ruggedly designed to withstand harsh conditions, boast wide dynamic range (WDR) technology, and ensure seamless integration with video management systems while prioritising cybersecurity measures.

Remote monitoring and versatility make Bosch IP PTZ cameras the top choice for critical security applications worldwide, from large-scale outdoor installations to sensitive indoor environments.

Securing Success: The Future of Surveillance and Ongoing Collaborations.

The upgraded system now empowers comprehensive monitoring of critical areas, including the new Swansea Arena, Swansea Market, and additional public spaces, including housing stock.

The success of the Swansea City Council CCTV upgrade project serves as a testament to the power of partnership and the dedication to delivering security solutions that stand the test of time.

CDS Security Systems and Bosch continue to set the bar high, ensuring the safety and security of communities while exemplifying excellence in the security industry.



"Bosch working in partnership with CDS over many years has been able to offer next-generation equipment with cutting-edge performance, analytical packages, and advanced cyber security credentials, knowing that the equipment will last for many years to come as CDS engineers are fully conversant and trained on Bosch equipment, CDS was asked to join the Bosch video partner programme at an early stage due to they’re ongoing commitment to training and installation achievements.

Working within CDS installation schedules, Bosch delivered ahead of schedule allowing CDS engineers to pre-configure equipment prior to attending the site" .
