Castle Howard is one of the UK’s finest houses and Country Estates, it is listed as one of the top ten mansions in the world. Based in Yorkshire, Castle Howard has been owned by the Howard family for over 300 years. This impressive House and estate covers over 1,000 acres and attracts over 200,000 visitors every year.
With 65 staff working on the estate and this increasing to over 200 during the busy summer months efficiency, effectiveness and safety are high on the list of priorities when looking at communications solutions across this vast site. Mr Howard and his team are pioneers of new solutions and technology so when their existing analogue radio equipment was reaching the end of its useful life it was natural for them to investigate other solutions which would give them the additional features they require such as GPS tracking, encryption, lone working, man down, etc. as well as the facility to grow and develop as their requirements expand.
