CCTV Systems

CCTV is a very powerful tool in the fight against crime. Not only do security camera systems provide a fantastic visual deterrent, footage can be used for valuable insight into accidents, health and safety incidents and security breaches. The footage can provide evidence against anti-social behaviour, theft, vandalism and burglary, potentially saving you thousands in the long run.

Closed Circuit Television was initially developed as a means of security for banks and casinos, however, today it has been developed to the point where it is simple and inexpensive enough to be used in business premises and homes for everyday surveillance.

IP or Analog CCTV systems?

A common question from our customers relates to whether it’s better to purchase an IP camera system or opt for an analog system. The reality is that both have advantages. Ultimately, the best choice comes down to the amount of investment you have available, what you need the camera to do, what infrastructure you already have in place, and how important it is that your security cameras are operational at all times.

An IP (Internet Protocol) camera converts the signal into a digital one, then sends it via a LAN to a network. In contrast, an analog camera, which is the more traditional type of camera, sends the signal to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) where it is transformed into a digital signal, compressed and stored.

In operational times, IP cameras are usually considered superior. This is because:

  • The resolution (picture quality) is much better from an IP camera. This is particularly important if you need footage for identification purposes or to serve as court evidence.
  • Although the right infrastructure is needed, modern IP cameras are typically simple and quick to install.
  • IP cameras have a memory card slot, for alternative storage. Data storage can also be cloud-based, which, with the right security, is a very safe method of storage.
  • IP cameras are also capable of running on an uninterruptible power supply. Thieves will often try to take out the power supply to a building before attempting a break-in, in the hope that the cameras have been disabled. This works for many analog cameras, as they can’t easily switch to a secondary power source. In contrast, IP cameras can switch rapidly, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum.

IP cameras are frequently more expensive to install, but we can usually find a way to provide you with the security outcomes you need, even if you’re on a tight budget.

Types of CCTV cameras

There are several types of CCTV security systems available on the market and our team are on hand to ensure you select the right system for your home or business.

Some of our CCTV options include:

  • Bullet cameras: These cameras allow you to observe long distances and are commonly used in outdoor settings due to their weather-resistant properties. They are cylindrical in shape and serve as a visual deterrent to criminals.
  • IP cameras: IP cameras provide you with easy access from anywhere and users can archive footage for later use. The bandwidth of the video is compressed to make the live footage more reliable.
  • Dome cameras: These cameras give you a 360-degree rotation view of your property – making them great installations for shops, casinos, restaurants, and other hospitality businesses. The dome shape means that individuals are unable to determine the direction of the camera.
  • Wireless cameras: Wireless cameras are quick and easy to install when compared to other options. They have a discreet and tidy appearance which makes them the most suitable for stately homes or churches. Property owners can view images over the internet, meaning they’re accessible from remote locations.
  • C-mount cameras: This camera type comes with detachable lenses you can switch and adjust the lenses to monitor varying distances. This means you adapt your cameras to accommodate altering fields of vision.

Wireless security cameras FAQs

You can’t put a price on your family’s safety. Installing a CCTV security system is an extremely effective way to protect your home. A security camera system is a powerful deterrent against potential criminal activity. If a crime does take place, you will have video evidence of the act which can prove helpful in a police investigation.

CCTV also has practical uses. Your CCTV system provides live video footage to ensure your elderly relatives, children and pets are safe.

No matter the size of your business, CCTV security cameras can be an invaluable asset. As mentioned above, its an effective way to deter criminal activity. But its benefits do not end there. CCTV will help you improve product control. It also saves you money, as you’ll no longer need a security patrol. The security system will prevent trespassing and employee theft and you’ll have video evidence in the event of an injury. So, making a claim will be much easier.

While both systems have advantages, digital CCTV is the preferred option. Digital CCTV provides much higher picture quality and only requires one CAT6 data cable to connect to your onsite Network Video Recorder (NVR). They also enable to log in remotely, using your PC, smartphone or tablet. Whereas, analog CCTV systems need power at each location, the image quality is lacking and you can only see recorded footage onsite.

This is a common question for first-time customers. Wireless security cameras are quite popular among the public. The reason is, they are simple to install and can easily disconnect from your Wi-Fi network. However, they are relatively difficult to maintain. They are prone to drop out in a weak Wi-Fi signal. This means batteries must be constantly replaced. If not, each camera needs a working power source. To prevent these problems and ensure optimal reliability, we recommend installing a wired CCTV system.

We have a wide variety of security camera systems available. Some of the most popular security camera types include:

  • Dome
  • Pignose
  • Bullet
  • Panoramic, and;
  • Motorised PTZ cameras.

Each CCTV camera is best suited to different applications. So, we recommend speaking to our talented team. We will help you to find the ideal camera to suit your needs.

No, this won’t be a problem. The reason is, each camera has dedicated “dead zones”. These areas are not picked up by the motion detector, so they aren’t filmed. This ensures the CCTV camera’s sensors only detect genuine activity (i.e. people entering or leaving your property, etc.). So, your footage will not be taken up by foliage moving into frame, for instance. Your neighbours’ privacy is also protected. Sections of footage can be blacked out so that images from neighbouring properties are not seen on your cameras.

Yes, you certainly can. You no longer need to be onsite to review the CCTV camera footage. If you have a reliable internet connection, no matter where you are, you can view the day’s footage. Everything your security system records can be accessed via a free, and easy to use app. This app is available through your PC, tablet or smartphone.
