Our recently completed Australian Embassy project located in Jakarta has just been awarded for the Best Government Development and Best Landscape Architectural Design at the Indonesia Property Awards 2016

In July 2013, ECS Services won the Australian Embassy, located in Jakarta, Indonesia. The contract was completed and handed over in August 2015, and on March 21st, 2016, The Australian Embassy was officially opened by Australia's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

After the original embassy was bombed in 2004, the Australian government saw it as imperative to develop a new embassy that incorporated architectural excellence with state of the art security that would further prevent any attacks in the future.

With careful planning, on-going consultation between the client, and effective project management, ECS Services was able to deliver its most fulfilling complex turnkey security solutions within the required hand-over date.

The complex landmarks Australia's most successful project undertaken by DFAT outside of Australia, the largest diplomatic post in the world, but also ECS's largest international project to date. 

Our team is honoured to have played such a pivotal role in assisting the Australian Government in making the new Australian Embassy a safe and secure environment for consular staff, tourists and visiting government dignitaries.

Pelco Endura for Sydney council

ELECTRONIC security installations are a confluence of security policy and security technology, as well as a direct reflection of the standards and skills of the integration teams that build them. They also make a clear statement about the importance an organization places on its security operations.

If you embrace these observations, it’s impossible not to rate City of Sydney’s new video surveillance system at the highest level. It’s an end-to-end solution – starting at fibre patch panels behind recently upgraded cameras and running through all the twists and turns of the classic hybrid solution.

Sydney’s crime beamed live to police using city’s 99 CCTV cameras

WHEN a man armed with a sawn-off shotgun was caught on CCTV loitering outside Hungry Jacks in Darlinghurst last year, police were tipped off just in time to foil an armed robbery.

Nearby police sped to the scene and arrested the balaclava-clad man before he was able to hold up the fast food restaurant.

The crime was one of an increasing number that are being caught on camera in real-time and beamed ‘live’ to police to help them catch crooks in the act.

CCTV cameras in Kings Cross

The installation of CCTV cameras is traditionally a NSW Government function, however over the last 10 years the City of Sydney has stepped in to ensure cameras were installed to support police, after a lack of funding by the state.

The City has installed 81 cameras covering the city centre, Darlinghurst, Kings Cross, Surry Hills and Glebe.

The City last applied for funding of $500,000 for the installation of additional cameras. The Federal Government rejected our application for funding.

Nonetheless we are continuing with our plan to install six new security cameras in Kings Cross.

Green light for Gap safety Cameras to alert police

AN ELABORATE plan to stop people throwing themselves off Sydney's most notorious suicide spot, The Gap, could get the green light tomorrow.

More than $2million would be spent on surveillance cameras, security lighting, a safety phone and an anti-climb cliff-top barrier at the Watsons Bay lookout, where it is believed about 50 people take their own lives each year.

Some of the funds will be provided by Woollahra Council, which will put the proposal to the vote tomorrow night after almost two years consulting with specialist architects, police, mental health experts and residents.

Street Safety Cameras

An eye on the street

Certain areas of the City of Sydney have higher rates of crime than others.

We have installed street safety (CCTV) cameras in these areas identified by the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research to help NSW Police detect, prevent and prosecute assaults and robberies, and other serious offences such as property damage.

Specially trained security personnel at a Town Hall control centre monitor 99 cameras across the city centre 24 hours a day.

Malcolm Turnbull announces high-definition CCTV camera and new police monitoring station for The Gap

As a nation we are talking more openly about mental illness and suicide because we recognise that we can’t solve problems that we refuse to acknowledge.

There is less discussion about people who come back from the edge and get a second chance at life, including those from Gap Park in Watsons Bay.

But our local police tell us that people can be encouraged away from the path of self harm and are often grateful that someone intervened.

High-tech CCTV technology installed in Sydney CBD

PLAYING up in Sydney's CBD just became harder.

The city's network of 82 surveillance cameras now not only track your every move but can zoom in on the minutia of life like never before, even in low-light.

The vast boost in capability means every step on the 4km walk from one end of the CBD to the other - The Rocks to Surry Hills - can be tracked by cameras, with the footage kept for 28 days

The $3.5 million revamp comes as the Sydney City Council made the switch from video technology to digital, allowing sharper images and greater storage capacity.
