Upgraded Software Provides Peace Of Mind For Peak Season

With peak holiday season fast approaching park security systems need to be seamless and easy to use to ensure monitoring and response isn’t compromised due to the higher footfall. Leading caravan and holiday home park security specialist, Ramtech Electronics, has recently upgraded the software for its Rambase wireless alarm system to enhance access and usability.

The Rambase system monitors park activity and alerts caravan owners and park operators if there is an intrusion. It sends a signal from the ‘plot’ to a single computer system which then reports the intrusion to a pager, often monitored by the park’s security team. Ramtech have upgraded Rambase to Windows XP allowing it to be installed onto the park’s network and therefore accessed through any computer or laptop on or off-site, rather than being a specific stand alone device.

Other improvements to the system include a new easy-to-use user interface, enhanced user access controls and reports together with a fully configurable system that can be adapted to meet the park’s requirements. Alongside this, the system can be backed up remotely by connecting it to Ramtech and there is also the potential to connect to a 3rd party park management system.

The system can also be used to monitor such items as water pumps, sewage pumps and carbon monoxide detectors within caravans, sending an alert if there is a problem. Panic alarms can also be monitored as well as appliance protectors, a Ramtech product that is attached to high value items within caravans such as TVs and games consoles, as well as items stored externally such as gas bottles and bikes. Again alerts are sent via the Rambase system if there are any attempts to remove or tamper with them.

As the UK’s leading manufacturer and installer of security and monitoring systems for holiday parks Ramtech also provides wireless CCTV monitoring systems, a cost effective way of providing 24 hour security of the site.

Ramtech installs network video systems that use innovative Internet Protocol (IP) networks to provide high quality, sharp images that are wirelessly transmitted back to the monitoring and recording stations. These can be viewed live from any web browser on or off site and can be stored for up to 30 days. These networks can be installed to cover large areas of the park when placed at strategic points across the site.

Systems are set up to ensure secure communication by configuring connections that are encrypted and can only accept a specific network connection. This eliminates the possibility of anyone hacking into the system. Cameras can also be encrypted with ‘watermarks’ to the video data stream with information on image, time, location, users, alarms and more, in order to secure an evidence trail.

Andy Hicks, managing director of Ramtech Electronics commented: “We are always looking for ways to improve our products and the software upgrades have been designed with users in mind, giving greater access and usability. Rambase 2 was the first of its kind when it was launched over ten years ago and was very exciting for the holiday park industry. Given all the improvements and changes in technology, we used our wireless expertise to develop the product and adapt its functions to suit modern computing systems. We are pleased with the new system which has been welcomed by the industry and will undoubtedly help Park Operators maintain high levels of security throughout the busy holiday season.”

Jon Hogson, general manager of Manor Holiday Village commented: “Ramtech have always kept our park safe and secure with their products. We were excited to hear about the new Rambase system that will make park monitoring more effective and even simpler whilst also making it easier to train new members of staff
