Alarm Monitoring Services (I watch)

Name: Alarm Monitoring Services (I watch)

Address: 2013 Orchard Ave, Citywest Business Park, Dublin 24

Architect: Alain Giacometti Architects

‘I Watch’ operates from a purpose built central station at the National Digital Park in Citywest in Dublin 24, which consists of two complementary facilities – a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) room and an Alarm Monitoring Centre. This facility is Ireland’s only 24/7/365 CCTV intruder monitoring services with dedicated back up facilities.

In order to comply with current regulations, EN and IS standards, the Citywest facility had to have its own electricity generator which can run indefinitely in case of a power outage, while an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system ensures a constant supply of power to monitoring and camera equipment.

Wyse Electrics were responsible for the design and installation of all the electrical services on this site.

We had never previously dealt with Wyse Electrics Ltd and found them to be a breath of fresh air. They understood from the initial ideas what was required and by the nature of the contract, i.e. the first installation of its kind in Ireland, there were numerous changes for which they had catered for and executed in a professional manner. Wyse Electrics are now maintaining both our facilities and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Industrial Commercial


Wyse Electrics have enjoyed a good relationship with clients and architects alike over many years and from these relationships the Company has developed the ability to target the clients specific needs and convert these into practical electrical designs and realistic installations while also bearing in mind the budget price of contracts. The availability of maintenance contracts after the initial installation helps the Company to refine the initial installation and moving forward, to make any necessary adjustments that may help in energy or method management.

The wide spectrum of electrical work offered also makes the Company attractive for clients/architects, as their dealings are limited to the one Company.  Listed below is a brief outline of the services offered:

  1. Power and lighting systems.
  2. Fire alarm.
  3. CCTV/Access systems.
  4. Intruder alarm.
  5. Emergency lighting systems.
  6. Data/ telephone systems.
  7. Power factor correction systems.
  8. Stand-by generators.
  9. Uninterrupted power supply systems. (U.P.S.)

Special Installations

Wyse Electrics Ltd.have been involved with many one off installations all unusual and diverse in their own way but the common underlying factor to all of these is the enthusiasm which we apply to each project while also being mindful of the completion deadlines and budgets involved. One such project is the new lighting system along the 1 kilometre walkway at Bray Promenade, co. Wicklow, which was featured in the publication “Architecture” issue 197.  Another project was the installation of Flood Lighting designed and installed for Holy Child School, Killiney.
