CCTV can not only act as a crime and malpractice deterrent, but it can also support insurance claims and police investigations in the instance of theft or damage to commercial or intellectual property. In event of theft/vandalism it’s important that your CCTV specification is right, not only to claim on your insurance but also to act as sufficient evidence for the authorities.

IP Network Camera
Internet Protocol (IP )CCTV Cameras have fast become he industry standard in terms of video surveillance. IP CCTV cameras transmit video feed and control data to a receiver over the internet. This technology has numerous benefits over the legacy analogue versions.
Because IP CCTV cameras are connected to the internet, they can be accessed and controlled remotely. They also boast the feature of improved image resolution (typically four times better than analogue cameras) and two way audio.
Analogue CCTV cameras are considered the most cost-effective option when it comes to CCTV. This is due to the physical product being cheaper than their IP counterpart and due to there being less setup and configuration required. Another advantage of analogue CCTV cameras is their ability to play back in real time; whereas IP cameras typically have a small delay.
If you’re looking for a simple, budget and entry level CCTV system then analogue CCTV cameras might be the best option for you.
Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras have become more and more popular in recent years. The reason is due to being able to completely change the field of view and the ability to zoom into specific parts of the frame. All of this is controllable via a remote, a control room or even a portable device such as a phone or tablet. The advantage of a PTZ camera is that instead of installing numerous cameras to cover a view, one camera can cover the whole view by being panned,titled and zoomed by an operator.
PTZ cameras are typically used by large commercial properties with a dedicated control room or someone that can monitor and operate the cameras.
It’s not surprising that statistically more burglaries take place during the night. Criminals will use the cover of darkness to try and hide their identity. We recommend that all of our customers invest in night vision CCTV cameras to further enhance their surveillance. Night vision CCTV cameras are able to see in the dark due to their built in infrared (IR) lights.
Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, but visible for cameras. With the extra feature of infrared lights, night vision CCTV cameras can record high definition videos during daytime and nighttime.
We can set up your cameras to only record when an alarm signal is triggered. This means that your CCTV will only record what it needs to and when it needs to. This can reduce the amount of stored data on your system and increase the lifespan of your cameras. This technology is mainly used to monitor a premises that isn’t used regularly or is remote.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras are most commonly associated with police enforcing road laws. However, the technology can be used in a wide range of applications. For example, ANPR cameras are becoming more popular within car parks to monitor details on vehicles such as if their ticket has been paid, length of time parked etc. ANPR can also be used for access control on secure sites such as government and military premises.
