Client: QBE

Contractor: Honeywell

Location: Multiple locations across the UK

The Project

The requirement was to upgrade the existing security equipment and to install an integrated access, video and intruder solution.

The Solution

Direct Security introduced an upgraded Honeywell WIN-PAK® SE system which would allow the three main QBE offices at Chelmsford, 88 Leadenhall Street, London and Plantation Place, London to be connected and managed together. The remaining UK sites were added in phase two. The readers and smart cards installed can be programmed for multiple sites which mean that staff travelling between the company’s UK sites require only one card to allow them access to all of the sites.

The Benefits

The security operation now benefits from a combined systems approach with remote connectivity and integration across all of the UK offices. The access control, video, intrusion alarms and ANPR systems can all be controlled from the security hub in London which allows the team to centrally monitor all CCTV and alarm events whilst being able to run consistent and holistic access control reports from the WIN-PAK application. Importantly, the system is highly scalable, allowing for seamless expansion and development in the future, in line with business requirements.


“I trust Direct Security to recommend the right products for the job and for QBE. I have every confidence they will continue to do that. We see the Fusion DVR, WIN-PAK® SE system and Galaxy as setting the standard for the continued development of security & business continuity across QBE in the UK.”
