Mike Oakes - IT Manager
"We need to ensure all our pupils, staff and visitors are safe and reassured whilst onsite. We decided to invest in a CCTV system to contribute to this.
After spending time researching and after obtaining 3 like for like quotes, it was obvious just how professional Unison are. Just the quality of the survey and quote alone stood out from the others.
This level of service and professionalism has been evident throughout the whole process (from the initial contact to the fully installed and certified / functioning CCTV system). Internal and external cameras have been installed - no corners cut - absolutely faultless (safe, neat, clean and tidy).
Top class service which I would highly recommend.
A big Thank you to all the Unison team for making this install a pleasure to be involved with."
Anita Sehra - YMCA Heart of England
"The team at the Orchard are really happy with the CCTV. The cameras are positioned well and cover the blind spots. The quality of the images is clear and people can be identified a lot easier and the system is easy to use.
Unison worked efficiently and professionally; we hardly noticed their presence on site.
We are happy to recommend Unison"
Jacob Nicklin - HVC Supplies (Stourbridge) Ltd
Installing a 46 Idis camera system
We have found Unison to be an exemplary supplier. From initial system specification and design, through to installation and commissioning, their experience and confidence in the both the IDIS equipment and their own abilities were obvious, and we could not be happier with the results. We would not hesitate to use Unison again, or to recommend them to others.”
Barry Foster Customark
After looking to introduce CCTV to our business and doing a search on the internet it was mind blowing the amount of different types of cameras and systems that are available.
So we decided to get a few quotations and compare companies costs and recommendations.
We had already received a site survey and a quotation from one company when we were recommended by an employee about Unison, we gave Unison a call and arranged for a pre-quote site survey.
On Survey day Matt arrived on site at the time agreed and after an initial conversation we took a stroll around the site and we knew straight away that Matts approach was totally different to the previous companies and we instantly felt he knew what he was talking about. We asked questions from the limited knowledge that we had gained from the other companies and his answers filled us with confidence and didn’t try and baffle us with a sales patter.
Unisons quote was received and by the end of the day the order was placed due to the confidence that we gained from Matt and the competitive quote.
On Install day the engineers carried the professionalism along with them and even though they had to run cables around the site the system was it was clear that this is a company who take pride in their workmanship and left the site in a clean and safe manner. By the end of the second day all cameras were up and running and the quality of the footage is excellent and also allows us remote access.
I would not hesitate recommending Unison based on my experience.
Phil Collis Rosary Catholic Primary School
The experience I have had with Unison is very good. Always at the end of the phone if you need anything, very professional company and would recommend them to anyone.
Bridget Morris at Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School
Having recently been appointed Headteacher at Stuart Bathurst High School, one area of immediate concern I had, was the security of the school site and how easy it would be for anyone to gain access to the buildings at any time of day. The main school car park was also exposed to the general public and we had encountered problems where our students had been approached at our playground gates. Because of this, I appointed Unison Integrated Technology, having seen their previous work at a local high school and also having received excellent recommendations. Unison were able to provide fully automated motorised gates and secure fencing to the perimeter of the car park, increasing the security of the school’s boundary. Their engineers were very professional, polite and most importantly, accommodating to the needs of a busy high school. They also installed the latest locks to our external doors using magnetic locking technology as well as other types of locking systems. This made them only accessible to members of staff and students at certain times of the day. Previously, we had issues where students were unsupervised in corridors during break and lunchtimes resulting in behavioural incidents. The new locking system allows us to monitor access to the building during these times, and therefore reducing the number of incidents.
Most importantly, this technology allowed us to perform an improved Lockdown Procedure, something which all schools need to be able to do in the event of an emergency, where the school is required to be secure from intruders. Recently, we had to carry out this procedure as someone did gain access to the school site as the result of a police chase in a neighbouring area. We were able to secure the building very quickly and the magnetic locking system worked faultlessly. Following the incident, the police and parents commended how well this procedure was carried out and building security and we only plan to increase this to other areas of the school. We would have no hesitation using Unison Integrated Technology for future projects.

Daniel Greaves at Firsteel
Firsteel were in the market for a whole site CCTV system, not having any currently it was a blank canvas for a complete new installation. After many months of back and forth site visits and quotations with yourselves and other CCTV suppliers, we finally decided to go with Unison Integrated Technology Ltd.
I’m very glad we did…
Your company provided the best value quotation and technical knowledge using the most advanced camera technology currently available from IDIS. The professional approach from start to finish was exceptional.
During the install phase I was expecting some install issues, however 33 cameras, 3 switches and 1 NVR later, this digital system went in without any problems and completed within the 2 weeks quoted window before the Christmas shutdown.
Many thanks to Matt and your team for a great job. I look forward to working with you in the future and would highly recommend you to other people.
St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary
After deciding on the need for a CCTV system, we sought multiple quotes and advice but stopped the search after a superb consultation with Matt at Unison; there was no pushing, no over-sell and nothing added to the final package that wasn't entirely necessary to our needs. In addition, the price was both fair and reasonable and came out much lower than many rival companies.
Unison supplied us cameras (including a custom designed and coloured post for an outdoor area) and microphones in all the right locations, minimising the cost by intelligent placement - the system is perfect for our current needs but remains future proofed.
The team were punctual, efficient and very knowledgeable. The immediate aftercare was great, with Matt checking we were happy with everything and supporting us in training users.
We would not only recommend Unison to others but will be using them again for other projects in the future.
Mark Atkiss at International Eyewear Ltd
Dear Unison Integrated Technology Ltd,
I would like to take this opportunity to commend Matt and his team for an all-round professional service provided to our business.
After already gaining several quotes from alternative suppliers to upgrade our CCTV system we called upon the services of Unison CCTV technologies. Right from the start of the project Matt provided us with friendly knowledgeable advice for the type of security system that would best suit our business requirements, this was then shortly followed up with an extremely competitive quotation.
On the day of installation, the engineers were exceptional, they turned up on time and explained the work which was about to be carried out. Whilst on site they were also very polite and considerate to staff along with being exceptionally clean and tidy along the way. The work was then completed on schedule to a high standard along with a full system demonstration.
The whole process was accompanied by attentive administrative staff that kept us fully informed along the way. We look forward to working alongside Matt and the Unison team for all of our future security needs.
I would thoroughly recommend Unison Integrated Technology Ltd based on our excellent experience
Mike Oakes at Abbey Federation
Unison upgraded our CCTV system a while ago; the job was completed efficiently and on time, due to the previous experience we decided to ask Unison (and alternative companies) to advise us and quote for a solution to upgrade and extend our current door access system.
Once again Unison delivered – The quote was very competitive, current solutions / options were recommended and they also accommodated working to fit in with the School working environment by offering to carry out the install and commissioning over a weekend.
Yet again the work was completed on schedule, the site was left clean and tidy with a fully functional updated Door Access system.
Great Service – Would highly recommend…
Annette Tyler at Swanshurst School
When we needed to replace our existing CCTV system – my heart filled with dread! We have had poor experiences with companies previously but, we need not have worried. From the moment Matt arrived, he listened to our wishlist and what we wanted to achieve from the system and then gave very clear advice on the options available – with no “hard sell”.
We selected his company because we had total confidence that he would deliver a CCTV solution which met our needs and that we had received good value for money. This confidence was justified as our system surpasses our expectations. Not only that but I have to commend the installation team. We were told we wouldn’t know they were there – we found that hard to believe, but it was true!
They were exceptionally efficient, polite and considerate at all times and left all areas they worked in clean and tidy. Matt ensures that you receive a personal service, keeping you informed of progress and is unfailing patient and supportive – nothing is too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending Unison and would use them again for other projects in future.
Adam Jones Group
Being a first time buyer of CCTV equipment was a pretty daunting task, we had a rather difficult yard and the first few companies were giving me a price which would involve huge amounts of groundworks. I had seen Unison working at a major client of ours and asked if I could have the contact details of whom had installed their CCTV. I contacted Matt, and he turned up on time which was a first, Matt was a pleasure to deal with, no hard sell, various options given of what he could do for us, and more importantly what would be sensible to do.
The spec sounded great but I was quite concerned with what to expect from the quotation, but when this arrived it certainly was amongst the ball park, and this also meant that we did not need to do huge amounts of ground works.
We placed the order and the work went through very smoothly and by the end of the week all cameras were up and running and the quality of the footage is excellent and allows us remote access. We continue to recive excellent back up and support when we have a few questions and I cannot recommend Matt and his team enough, professional through and through.
Hallmark Hotel, Cambridge
We recently had a new 27 camera CCTV system installed at our hotel in Cambridge. Unison were fantastic from the initial site visit to the installation. We are a busy operational site, Unisons expertise provided us maximum coverage to ensure security and additional safety. We have been most impressed with the aftercare provided by Matt and his team
Abbey Junior School
I would not hesitate recommending Unison based on my experience, Unison worked safely in the School environment.
Our Schools aging CCTV system was in need of a total update, already having a few quotes – not only to compare costs but also to compare the approach various companies take whist carrying out a pre-quote site survey. Unison were asked to quote – Matt (Unison) arrived onsite punctually as pre-arranged .They say first impression last… and its true , within fifteen minutes of surveying our site with Matt(Unison) it was apparent that this is a company who take pride in their workmanship .
No Pushy sales waffle – I’m not a CCTV engineer but I do have an engineering background , Matt suggested certain aspects relevant to what I had said the Schools requirements were which in turn made his knowledge and professionalism stand out above the other companies who had already visited site and quoted. Unisons quote was as competitive as any other quote obtained – in fact due to Matt’s recommendations we ended up with a higher specification system, professionally and efficiently installed, completed clean and tidy considering the whole site had to be re cabled and up and running on a certain date as agreed.
I would not hesitate recommending Unison based on my experience, Unison worked safely in the School environment.
Bordesley Green Girls'
Excellent and prompt service Unison provides
"May I take this opportunity to express my satisfaction with the excellent and prompt service Unison provides. I am truly impressed with the company and the manner in which you have catered for the needs of the school over the years.
My special thanks goes to members of your Installation/Maintenance team James, Harry and Scott whom I can only describe as exemplary; their very helpful attitude, jolly disposition and willingness to go the extra mile in providing us with support, certainly reflects positively on them as individuals and yourselves as a company. "
Mr G Quailey MCP, MCDST
ICT Operations Manager
The Custard Factory, Digbeth, Birmingham
Unison have recently completed a significant CCTV installation covering a wide and diverse estate in Digbeth for us.
Having tendered the project Unison provided a very competitive quote offering very high quality equipment. Throughout the project, in a fully live and active environment, communication from Matt Rodden and his team was excellent and accurate. The standard of work was high quality and engineers onsite where exceptionally polite and considerate.
I am very pleased with the quality of the images and operation equipment is simple and effective and far exceeded my expectations.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Unison and look forward to a long and productive working relationship with the company.
Welsh House Farm Community School
Unison CCTV installed our school’s electronic access and CCTV system.
This has updated our school security measures and safeguarding practices.
On the very rare occasion that we have had any queries or issues the Unison Tech team have responded promptly and been friendly and professional to deal with
Personal Assistant to the Head Teacher/Office Manager
Bellfield Junior and Infant School
“After using Unison extensively for our access control and CCTV requirements, we offered them the chance to tender for a big contract to install automatic gates to our site to coincide with our existing access control system. Unison were able to deliver the project within the 6 week period and go above and beyond in meeting the requirements of the site. Both their price and awareness for health and safety makes them the perfect company to use for such projects at a time where bigger companies attempt to win tenders for extortionate prices.”
Building Site Manager
BMG Research Ltd
BMG are working on a very complex project for one of our clients which involves some very clever bits of kit and knowledge to help in making this national study a success. Unison have supported this study and have been around the country to install, setup and are also assisting with the on going analytics on the footage that is being captured.
The install and setups are very different from the standard jobs any CCTV installing company would usually take, the areas of install and configurations are very challenging. However, its all been very steady and surprisingly stress-free given the support and peace of mind we have received from Unisons assurances.
Specific mention of the Boss man himself (Matt), who is a great personality to work with, professional and knows his business A-Z. Matt works very closely with his team and keeps a very close eye on all his projects and most importantly does not think twice to get his own hands dirty when needed to support his team and get the job done!
Its no surprise, BMG also commissioned the install of 32 High Res IP Cameras at our HQ, which was undoubtedly a very simple task for Unison and everything was just in order! Unison and Team worked around our building (Internal and External) without any disruption and any challenges the team may have faced went unnoticed to us as they just got on with it and worked around them leaving us with a perfect solution.
A big thank you to Matt and team; it does not end here, as we continue to work together on a number of other projects which I am confident will all be a success.
Business Systems Director
BMG Research Ltd
Unison have successfully installed new electric pedestrian and vehicle gates with fencing for our school, Matt was a pleasure to work with and was quick to deal with any queries during the installation and his team did an excellent job. The gates/fencing have significantly improved security and they have been fitted so that they blend in with the environment and look good too. Matt did a great handover to explain how the gates worked and set up the timers etc, he even came back out the next week to make some timer time tweaks for us. I have already recommended him to other local schools.
Strategic Business Manager
Hallmark Hotel London Chigwell Prince Regent
I decided to go with Unison purely based on the service I received from Matt Rodden. He was very patient with me in regards to a number of changes I made and was nothing but professional. He listened to my requirements and always came back to me quickly with the information I requested. A site visit was then arranged to walk through where all the CCTV cameras would go where Matt again was great and talked me through the whole process. The engineers who then came to site where great. Overall service was A+ and would have no hesitations in recommending Unison for all CCTV works

General Manager – Fair Lawns
Christ Church CE (c) Primary School
I am writing to thank Unison for the installation of the electric gates and fencing at my school, Christ Church CE (c) Primary School. Your company were very efficient with quotes and meetings before the installation began and quickly dealt with any concerns and queries which arose during the installation process.
We are extremely pleased with the gates and fencing work. They are of very high quality and are an excellent safety addition to our school site.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Unison to other colleagues in and around Staffordshire.
Julie Pilmore – Christ Church CE (c) Primary School
I would like to thank Unison for installing a top of the range CCTV system into our factory in Aston, Birmingham.
I first came across your details on the internet and phoned for a site visit. I was fitted in to the schedule within a few days and the quotes were
sent on the same day with a range of different ideas. Within the site visit everything was explained from the correct position of cameras to the quality
of camera Unison use and a demonstration to show what the cameras were like
After confirming Unison were going to complete the work, they started a week later and upon arrival everything was explained once again.
The engineers did a fantastic job of covering the factory and ensuring there is as minimal blind spots as possible, as well as being very polite.
The job was finished within the 3 day period which was originally advised including checking everything was functioning correctly, setting up the DVR as well as setting up mobile viewing.
Upon completion we decided the monitor was too small and it was swapped with no problems. Once we were happy, Matt came out and gave a tutorial of how to use the software and answering any questions we had. We are very pleased with the system and are hoping it will improve our business
Woodrow first School and Nursery
I am writing to thank you for the recent car park barrier which was installed by your company some 3 weeks ago.
The superb quality of the products, combined with the excellent customer service is a credit to the team which very efficiently installed it. If any other schools are considering this type of installation I would highly recommend Unison for this task.
Once again many thanks to the Management and installation team for carrying out a wonderful job.
Edgbaston High School For Girls
We have used Unison to improve the CCTV and security arrangements at the school for several years.
They are a friendly professional local company who will design, manufacturer and install a range of security products. I am more than happy to recommend them to anyone who is considering changing or updating their security arrangements.
Steel & Alloy
As a person with no in depth knowledge of site access and CCTV equipment I did the usual thing and went out to source three or more independent suppliers when the requirement arose.
What was immediately obvious when all quotes were received was my naivety on the subject wasn’t taken advantage of by Unison during the quoting process. Matthew supplied a very competitive quotation and a package that suited our needs on site.
The installation process was seamless. All RAMS were provided up front. The install team adhered to all site H&S rules for the duration, the work was carried out to a professional standard. As well as this they had no problem or query when a spanner was thrown in the works by us and we changed locations or details from what we had agreed.
The project was completed ahead of the agreed deadline and comments from within the business have all been positive.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Unison as a supplier of access and CCTV equipment.

From design to completion Matt from Unison was always on hand to talk through any issues that arose.
When the gates were installed Matt even ran two training sessions for residents.
We are very pleased with the service we received. Many residents have commented how nice the gates looks.
I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Unison Technology. We can’t fault them on quality or price!
Advice, price, installation and aftersales service!.
Unison provided us with advice about the range of security systems available and which of the options would best suit our requirements.

The after sales service has been very efficient, with any adjustments being dealt with promptly.
I would thoroughly recommend Unison Integrated Technology.
The Oaks Junior / Infant School
When Matt came to our school to look around prior to delivering his quotation, his relaxed and friendly manner stood out.
The price quoted was extremely competitive, and the system and the time scale that he set out, was met by their excellent engineers.
On completion, everywhere was exceptionally clean and tidy, to the point that staff did not realize that cameras had even been installed both in and around the site. The after sales service they provide has also been extremely prompt, and of a professional but friendly manner.
Thanks’ Matt to you and your team for a job well done.
And I would have no hesitation in recommending Unison Integrated Technology (Unison CCTV)
Castle Vale Performing Arts College
Matt, you and the team at Unison cctv were recommended to the school via another cctv specialist who was unable to take on our job and complete within the available time frame.
As is normal with jobs that are to be done yesterday, you were given only the bare bones of a spec which you were able to expand into a spec that met the needs of the school as they were eventually explained to you. You accommodated change while you were here and you were still able to complete the job within the time frame.
On top of the above you have also handled changes and an expansion to the system, vandalism repairs/adjustments, and even theft!
Throughout this you have maintained a friendly, professional, responsive caring manner and have been a pleasure to do business with.
I would like on behalf of the school to thank you for the above and should you ever require a reference please do not hesitate to contact me.

King Edward VI Five Ways School
I have been a loyal customer to Unison for over 14 years now and received nothing short of an exemplary service, from the management down to the well mannered technicians in their smart liveried vehicles.
Our company security is in great hands. Unison have installed an amazing complete system for us at our Data Centre including CCTV, Access Control and Alarm System offering advice and support along the way saving us thousands.
We highly recommend Unison to anyone looking for CCTV and Access Control.
Prestige Car Company
Our complete system has been designed and installed by Unison to the highest standard.
Unison is a company you can trust.
Sandwell Council have used Unison to carry out installation and repairs to our car park barriers over the past 14 years and have always found them to be a very reliable helpful and honest contractor. They provide a good standard of workmanship at competitive rates.
Unison advised us that Genie equipment would best suit our requirements and was the most cost effective solution offering high standards of reliability and image recording quality, and that’s certainly proved to be the case.
Meanwhile, Unison has been a very helpful company, exceeding our expectations in terms of the service and back-up we receive from them. After this positive experience, I’d certainly recommend both Unison and Genie CCTV to anyone else
