Our Services

SaferCities provides fully independent CCTV and networking consultancy, along with complementary managed services if these are required.

We have deep knowledge in CCTV, networks and convergence software, complemented by industry relationships and global experience.

Our set of services work independently or as an end-to-end solution – we adapt how we engage with you based on your needs, project goals and other partners involved.

We are independent of any vendors, technology providers or implementation partners, which allows us to scope, identify and budget the best solution for your requirements.

From guiding you through gathering requirements to writing a scope, overseeing RFPs, introducing you to key stakeholders, managing live video streams through vGrid Safer City and Safer City VMS – our people and managed services bring your project together.

Our independent approach and deep expertise will help you safeguard your customers, stakeholders, partners, local community and help you build a safer city in your area.

Independent Consultancy

Upfront project clarity and experience is vital – wide area CCTV projects vary in terms of objectives, scope and deliverables.

Costs can vary widely depending on vendors and integrators used.  It does not have to be this way if requirements and conceptual design are clearly scoped.

A clear vision and rigorous project plan is crucial for budgeting, stakeholder buy in and project success.

This is what we do!

We have the knowledge and experience to get this right, save you money and help you deliver your project on time.

Our team can prepare your project for procurement or RFP by translating your vision into technical requirements, a high-level design and ballpark pricing.

Our independence means we can offer the best solution, vendors and integrators for your project.


We are designing and managing wide area Safer City projects every day.

We build CCTV and network designs that provide visibility of your capex and opex commitments beyond launch.

Our designs take your vision and translate this in to;

  • Technical Requirements
  • High-level Designs
  • Low-Level Network Designs
  • Cost estimates

These help you budget and negotiate with the winning vendors and integrators.

Our designs follow best practice techniques and include simple to read visual CCTV layouts, high level network designs and brand agnostic CCTV camera and VMS system recommendations.

Our low-level designs define the detailed network architecture required including configuration specifics to ensure an integrator can implement a reliable and cyber-secure system.

Safer Cities designs are certified and ready for your CCTV installer or integrator to build, reducing time and project cost.
