We had the honour of finding the best technological security solution for Toowoomba Regional Council’s Carnival of Flowers while COVID19 restrictions were in place.
The Queens Park Botanical Gardens and Laurel Bank Gardens are the two most popular locations for tourists and local to enjoy the best of the carnival atmosphere. With the latest health restrictions, council needed to adhere to regulations all while still encouraging as much of the regular carnival cheer as possible!
Using our HIKvision cameras combined with the latest in AI facial recognition technology, Council workers were able to know exactly how many visitors were in the gardens at any time, just by looking on their smart phone!
While we can’t force attendants to practice physical distance, at least we can limit how many attendants are in the gardens! Isn’t technology amazing?
An upgrade of the club’s camera system to high-end IP CCTV added further functionality, allowing for facial recognition and licence plate recognition which ensures a great night out for all patrons and a safe environment for staff.
“We replaced Club Glenvale’s entire security system recently with Secure Solutions. For the safety of our patrons and staff we are now fitted out with 42 IP CCTV cameras and several monitors – one of which is a high megapixel TV that offers amazing resolution and clarity. It’s a user friendly system, easy to search, quick, and clear.
Since working with Pete and his team I’ve referred them on to several other businesses that I know. Because when working with Pete you’re getting the right thing installed for your business at a reasonable price. He’s picked a great team to work with him, they’re all friendly and know what they’re doing.
There’s a misconception that you have to go to Brisbane to get a decent security system. That’s just not the case – the Secure Solutions system is high quality and was money well spent.”

Bulk freight transport service, Rodney’s Transport, travels Australia-wide delivering fertiliser, grain, livestock and more. With multiple locations in Queensland, Adelaide and Wagga Wagga and a large, valuable fleet of heavy vehicles, access control and security was a top priority. We worked with Peter Rodney to design a security system that would allow staff to seamlessly access all sites without the need for keys, and installed specialised CCTV cameras and alarms for extra security.
We’re keeping patients, doctors, visitors, and staff safe and secure at St Andrew’s Hospital. This is one of the larger sites with many staff, up to 1500 authorised card users and 220 access points, it’s important to monitor the crowds accessing this facility every day. From securing doctor’s surgeries, to ensuring safety and security in the car park, this significant site requires a remarkable security system.
In partnership with the team at St Andrew’s, Secure Solutions designed a system that met all these requirements. This solution includes CCTV cameras, access control, alarm system and lifts designed to only allow selected personnel on certain floors. Our system incorporates selective lighting and air conditioning control to suites, which results in huge power savings with unoccupied rooms. The result is a facility that’s not only safer for everyone on site, but is also highly efficient and effective.
“At St Andrew’s Hospital we like to use local suppliers where we can – and Secure Solutions is a Toowoomba business that’s a valuable part of our team.
Nothing is too much trouble for Pete and his team. As a hospital we do have times where we need urgent or out of hours service, and Secure Solutions is always willing and ready to respond quickly.
Their knowledge base is excellent, as is the quality of their security equipment. We really appreciate that Secure Solutions is always looking at how to provide better solutions. We had started down a road of purchasing a certain camera with a previous supplier – Pete was able to not only pick this project up quickly, but he also came up with some alternative cameras that were just as good quality but saved us money.
They’re a friendly team, who get along well with our staff, which is important for us. We look forward to continuing to work with Secure Solutions into the future.”

The towns of Warwick and Stanthorpe are safer thanks to our work with Council installing a high-end IP CCTV security system. Featuring wireless links that remove the need for extensive labour in running cables around the town, the system is part of the City Safe program. We also worked to install an access control system which enables staff access with a card and not keys.
Several sites across the Lockyer Valley area required an access control system that maintains security while also making it easier for staff to work across sites. The access card system in place now means if an access card is lost, it’s replaced at the cost of a lunch, rather than the thousands needed to replace a master key. We’ve also worked with the Council to install high-end IP CCTV at selected sporting grounds, for the safety of patrons, staff and the wider community.
Intro to our Rapid Deployment CCTV trailers
We sell or rent these trailers and they are fully self-sufficient with 330-watt solar panels which slide out with one stationary in the middle and the other panels slide out either side. Includes four x 150-amp power batteries, four large stabilizer legs, making these trailers very sturdy. They have off-road capability and we can get these in all kinds of crazy places.
A motorized nine-metre mast and a couple of zoom cameras the trailer featured in our demo video is fitted with pan-tilt zoom cameras (little mini PTZ’s) and they can see for a hundred and fifty meters with infrared light. We can set up analytics that sends notifications to you when it detects anything you want it to detect.
Inside the workings are hidden in a slide out draw with a tray included so clients often use this for their monitor, keyboard and mouse. Our trailers include the new HIKvision mobile NDR. This network video recorder not only powers the cameras it also includes SIM card. Wi-Fi. GPS tracking and alarms. This unit is designed to be in a vehicle or trailer so you can drive around with all the equipment and you’re not going to harm it.
Inside the trailer we’ve got MPPT solar controller, so it utilizes as much of the sun as possible to get the most charge possible to the batteries. We’ve also got 240-volt inverter, so these trailers can become a little mobile site office because you’ve got Wi-Fi, so you’ve got internet and a power source. So there is capability to run a mini on-job site Builders office from these trailers.
On the front of the trailer is the motor for the mast, plus a camera that looks down to protect the trailer itself. Protection-wise for the actual investment of the trailer, not only has it got that GPS tracking but it also protects itself and sends notifications when anyone even gets near the trailer.
