Jean-Christophe Novelli is a celebrity chef who regularly makes television appearances to share his extensive knowledge on cooking delicious meals.
In 2005, Jean-Christophe opened the doors to his home in Hertfordshire, launching his cooking academy to share his passion for cooking with members of the public in his beautiful kitchen.
Jean-Christophe contacted Astral to repair and upgrade his CCTV system as it was inadequate for his needs. Jean-Christophe outlined his requirements to ensure that his home, and his place of work, were covered by a comprehensive CCTV system that gave him the peace of mind that his personal and business spaces were completely secure.
Jean-Christophe explained that he needed remote access to CCTV footage, so he could check live recordings if necessary whilst away on business, ensuring the safety of his family, home and academy.
Along with this, he requested a number of extra cameras to provide complete coverage of the property, along with an improved network to ensure the system would not fail.
The initial inspection
Astral immediately arranged for an engineer to visit Jean-Christophe’s home to assess the equipment already installed and understand the extent of the required upgrade. The engineer’s brief was also to determine whether Jean’ Christophe’s brief was something that could be done with existing equipment, or whether a new system was required.
The engineer established that he could utilise some of the equipment that was already on site and identified where improvements needed to be made. After a thorough inspection of the premises and a breakdown of where extra cameras were necessary from Jean-Christophe, Astral delivered a completely comprehensive solution.
The engineer also identified other requirements which then led to the provision of a fully compliant solution, ensuring that the Jean-Christophe’s cooking academy was compliant with British standards for fire alarms, emergency lights and fire extinguishers. Astral continue to monitor and maintain the CCTV system along with intruder alarm.
“Astral offer a complete solution and are willing to help in any way. It has now come to the point that whenever anything needs fixing or installing at my cooking academy, Astral are the first people I call. They really are a one stop shop – they even fixed my Sky TV!”
