ETNS Letterkenny Security Systems Project by Orbit Security Systems. 


Orbit Security were awarded the security systems contract by Treanor Electrical Ltd to install and commission the Intruder Alarm System, CCTV System, Panic Alarm System and the Access Control System. 

Intruder Alarm 

The Intruder alarm system was designed to protect the premises outside school hours which included over 50 Zones as well as the monitoring of the Fire Alarm System and Panic Alarm Systems. The System was also designed to trigger the external lighting in the event of an alarm in the hours of darkness to allow the key holder to enter the building safely. 

CCTV System 

CCTV Networking by Orbit Security Systems 

We installed the latest Hikvision IP 3.0 cameras in the protected areas to offer the school crystal clear HD images of the requested areas with latest Exir Infra Red lighting technology to allow the cameras to maintain there quality in the hours of darkness. The System was configured through the schools networks allowing for easy expansion in the future if required.   

Quality Installations always by Orbit Security Ltd

Access Control System 

We installed an 8 door networked ACT Pro access control system on all external lobby and exit doors to restrict access to the school by unauthorised personnel which was linked back to the reception allowing the school to monitor and control the system via the ACT Enterprise Software. The software allows school staff to view logs, add and delete users and to control all doors at the touch of a button while the system is live.  The System was also linked to the fire alarm to release all doors in the event of a fire.   

Panic Alarm System 

Fixed and portable panic buttons were installed for the event of an emergency. Portable panic buttons with repeaters located around the school were install to be used in the Playgrounds at break times to be used to alert staff if an incident occurred in the yard were a teacher needed assistants. 

The project was overseen by our Security System manager and was planned and executed to meet all deadlines before the handover at Halloween. Our team working with Treanor Electrical and  Western Building Systems kept quality in mind at all times to ensure the project was installed to the highest level possible. Demos and training were given to the client along with a complete systems manual to ensure ease of use. 

We would to like to take this opportunity to wish Áine, all the staff and the pupils the best of luck in their new school.
