Telecare and security systems provider Cirrus has won a five-year installation and maintenance contract with Leicester City Council to provide telecare, warden call systems and access control systems across the council’s 14 sheltered housing schemes. Installation of the Cirrus systems began last month and will cover 450 flats.
The council invited tenders through the OJEU framework after deciding it wanted to improve its community alarm services. In particular, it was looking for a flexible, telecare-enabled communication system that could work with localised CCTV and be compatible with its current monitoring platform.
Mahesh Parmer, procurement officer, Leicester City Council, said, “Cirrus’s approach to customer care and environmental procedures, combined with its understanding of the Tynetec product range made it stand out from the other bidders.”
