Exceptional Image as Super Low Illumination
The main goal of video surveillance is to see clearly anytime, anywhere. GalloGlas decided to use Uniview bespoke Starlight technology which has exceptional image quality at super low illumination giving the team at Jas P Wilson clear images during the day and night for both static and moving scene. The Starlight Technology is an innovative technology that delivers vivid colour, high definition, and extremely clear images in ultra-low light.
Jas P Wilson, Managing Director, Billy Wilson said, “It was an easy decision to make after seeing the demonstration of the UniView IP Starlight camera system, the team can now literally see in the dark!”
GalloGlas MD, Richie Nicoll says “Uniview was the obvious choice for this installation with exceptional ultra-smart technology and the Starlight feature it delivers a superior user experience. It’s an all in one solution for this type of surveillance project where security and safety are paramount.”
Problem & Solution
The Trust’s Health and Safety Coordinator faced a challenging task to provide an effective lockdown alert system for each school. Luminite’s Nexus critical alert range was chosen as it could provide a wireless solution, negating the need for a hard-wired system which would have been more costly in terms of resources and installation.
Luminite supplied a mixture of internal and external units meaning that no matter where the initial alert point was triggered and due to ‘flood technology’, all pupils and staff both inside and out would hear the voice alert and see the flashing blue beacons. Nexus lockdown units are deliberately blue in colour to differentiate them from fire beacons and there are 32 sounds to choose from to further differentiate them from fire alarms. The fact that the Nexus system could be installed by the Trust’s own Site Managers was a significant advantage, as their installation is quick and easy requiring no specialist or technical skills.
The TEACH Trust H&S Coordinator said “The Nexus system was installed without any disruption to the school day by the Site teams, following simple instructions supplied by Luminite who were available throughout for back-up support. After fully preparing our pupils for the event, we successfully completed lockdown drills without causing any distress to pupils or staff. There are no ongoing maintenance costs, other than a 3-yearly change of batteries and we would recommend the system to other educational establishments”.
Laura Grainger from Luminite commented ‘We are conscious that, especially in the current climate, school budgets must be spent wisely and we were happy to supply advance demo units to the school in order for them to test thoroughly. A consideration for the TEACH Trust was that they could easily add units to the system if needed and Nexus allows them to do this.’

1. How robust is your dispenser?
Whatever mechanism you use to dispense sanitiser, it is important that it is strong enough to withstand the volume of doses it will need to make – this can often be underestimated! There are many rudimentary pump systems out there that are just not up to the job. Unless you have a replacement for a faulty dispenser immediately to hand, there will inevitably be a period of time when there is no provision and protection is compromised.
2. Is your system touch-free?
Multiple numbers of potentially infected fingers placed on a pump dispenser one after the other makes having a hand sanitiser ultimately futile. Touch-free systems will significantly cut down the risk of infection and really should be the only method used.
3. What happens when your sanitiser liquid runs out?
Most systems require somebody to closely monitor when sanitiser liquid is about to run out and is tasked with replenishing or replacing with more liquid. For unmanned dispensers, users will all too frequently not bother notify somebody when a replacement is required but instead go ahead and enter a space without cleansing. A connected, automated sanitisation system that notifies those responsible when liquid levels are low are the most effective way to ensure a seamless, continuous supply of sanitiser.
It is also important to be realistic about the volume of sanitiser that you are likely to require in the first place. Choosing a sanitiser system with a large enough volume reservoir will help ensure that you can replenish with minimal disruption.
4. Can users choose whether to sanitise or not?
Our busy lives, and simple human nature dictates that unless we are compelled do something we invariably go for the path of least resistance! A recent anecdotal observation outside our nation’s largest DIY retailer revealed that in a 10-minute timeslot, all twenty customers that walked into the store, completely ignored the sanitiser pump located next to the door. Mandatory sanitising units integrated to building entry systems, where access is denied if hands are not sanitised, are by far the best way to ensure that every entrant has effectively cleansed hands.
5. Is your sanitiser secure?
It is a sad fact that unsupervised sanitiser systems in public spaces such as shopping centres and playgrounds, can be subject to vandalism and theft. In these environments, it is important to ensure that your units include a secure space for the sanitiser liquid. The ideal system would include a separate lockable area to house the sanitiser.
Some related facts about Steriloc Hand Sanitisation Units:
- Under stress test conditions the Steriloc dispensing system continues to work well for over 1 million dispenses
- Generous reservoirs minimise the need for sanitiser replenishment with most units capable of dosing 25,000 dispenses between refills
- All but the Steriloc Shield are data enabled for ‘low-sanitiser’ alerts
- All units are touch-free
- All units can be seamlessly integrated with most door access systems
- All units have lockable sanitiser reservoirs
