Zen Lounge – Audio Visual & IP CCTV


A communication problem waiting to be unravelled

At Zen Lounge in the Purley area of Croydon, London, we implemented sophisticated smart tech for not only controlling CCTV right throughout the building but also improving pre-existing TV and sound systems.

The new infrastructure included a 64 Channel 4K Hikvision CCTV system with 32 8MP Hikvision Darkfighter cameras. Centrally, we also upgraded a 16 Channel HD TVi to a 30 Channel IP Hikvision system to enhance the eatery’s audiovisual display TV distribution.

In all, we upgraded a 16-camera system by adding 16 more cameras, ensuring that the CCTV system would ultimately cover the entire restaurant as well as provide a street view.

The challenge

A convoluted restaurant waiting to be updated

Like many business owners, those at Zen Lounge were faced with a security system that technically “worked” but, in many respects, was insecure and cumbersome to use in practice. They also required a general modernisation ‘boost’ across their TV and sound systems.

For example, a security risk assessment conducted by our professionals unveiled holes in the existing security setup – there were many blind spots unable to be covered by the limited number of pre-existing cameras.

We are about stripping away difficult, out-dated systems from commercial properties. This is why we chose to implement smart systems such as the 64 Channel 4K Hikvision CCTV and 32 Channel IP 4K Hikvision system in order to integrate both system and security with audiovisual facilities around the premises.

Project Highlights

  • 32 data points/cables installed
  • 4 Av HDMI distributed solution
  • Full 4K Coverage images
  • Full coverage with no blind spots
  • 31 days recording
  • Bespoke post provided for good height for Car Park
  • Multi-screen security room
  • User friendly software
  • Remote view access
  • Smart notifications
  • 20 Bose speakers
  • 12 Samsung 4K televisions

The Solution

Through upgrading the previous 16-camera CCTV system, we enabled security at this property to enjoy full 4K coverage images throughout the restaurant - facing street view and the Car Park – without any blind spots.

We strengthened the property’s security through the fitting of a 64 Channel 4K Hikvision CCTV System with 32 x 8mp Hikvision Darkfighter Cameras. This was configured with a smart notification system and channelled through 4 AV HDMI Sources, allowing the entire property to be monitored from a multi-screen security room or even from afar via our installed remote view access.

Zen Lounge also wanted to display a list of their services and products so we integrated an audio visual command server to distribute specified campaigns. In the VIP booth, an AV was setup, allowing guests to play consoles and tailor their music and visual entertainment to their tastes. To this effect, Zen was fitted with the latest cutting edge music & sound system allowing for a greater music ambience. This involved the installation of 20 BOSE speakers with professional speaker cables and 12 Samsung 4K televisions.

Our Clients Feedback

"A top-drawer installation service"

We are thrilled that our customers can now enjoy great music and other entertainment literally at their fingertips! The engineers from Versed also expanded our CCTV system to leave our restaurant feeling more secure than ever before. Nothing we asked of Versed was ever too difficult for them.

We had been having WiFi issues, Luke could not have been more helpful in sorting them out and making sure that everything was working fully before leaving, many thanks


So I am very late on this review (sorry time flys when you are a new dad) - but a few months back Versedautomation installed 13 Unifi CCTV cameras, smart flood light and setup a Unifi network with 5 wireless access points and multiple switches for me in Orpington. They have done a brilliant job, even managing to get hold of the equipment somehow when everyone was out of stock! The system is still running flawlessly, the cables are all well managed and hidden away (even tidied some of my own bad cable management). We now have great WiFi in the garden when working from home, my cars that get updates over WiFi now finally have a perfect signal and actually get updates and the cameras give great piece of mind.

Akhtar Jan

My aunt tasked me to find a credible company to design, install and intergrate her Smart home, which was at first a scary feeling but after one call and a consultation visit with Versed automation Ltd I quickly realised the other companies who came out were no match to their expertise and enthusiasm. After a 12 week build, my aunt has finally been able to move back into her home and is ecstatic with her ability to set mood lighting, close blinds from her phone and watch what she wants where she wants...amazing work guys and will definitely recommend!


Home Automation Installation completely surpassed all my expectations. It was a big investment for our family but from the beginning they were very professional with planning, design and support. There were no hidden charges and they have a super team. Their staff were always friendly and available but Yemen, who was responsible for all the fittings was brilliant. You can probably tell I am incredibly happy with the end result and have recommended their services to a family member already.
