Why Would you use CCTV camera systems ?

Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video surveillance is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors.

Could be wired or wireless IP or Analog HD and many other technologies.

CCTV solutions

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is widely used in business today not only to stop theft but to monitor staff welfare, public safety and monitor processes. There is a wide range of CCTV technology available from Static cameras,Pan and Tilt cameras, IP cameras, Covert Cameras to name a few, all aimed at meeting your specific requirements and budget.

The systems will have a recording device whether that is a digital recorder or a video recorder. These devices allow playback, printing of screen shots and constant recording of the premises to ensure security. CCTV systems are usually installed in conjunction with an effective Intruder Alarm system to provide complete protection for your premises.

IP Solutions

In today’s fast moving world of technology its important that the correct technology is applied in all areas of business and CCTV is no exception. Many variants of IP Based solutions are available on the market today so it is critical for you that your integrator provides the correct advice

IP based cameras are the future. They work by turning images and audio into data then transmitting this data over a network or Internet connection. The key benefits of this over analogue CCTV systems are:

  • Greater Flexibility
  • Higher Quality Images

ANALOGUE SYSTEMS

Using Digital Video Recorders for CCTV Systems is still a very reliable, stable and most importantly cost effective method of achieving your surveillance goals especially in small to medium businesses.

With our digital recorders you are guaranteed clear, usable images and because we only use well-known, branded, reliable products such as Panasonic, Dallmeier, Mitsubishi and Pacom, amongst others, you are assured the best results are achieved every time.

IP Technology in Carparks

Video surveillance in car parks presents its own unique challenges. Achieving wide area coverage and obtaining registration numbers within the same image is now achievable.

Take a look at the 5 Megapixel image below and see what can be done.

Carparks do of course have obstacles such as pillars, posts and other vehicles so its extremely important to take in to account the ‘physical location’ of cameras to ensure the best possible coverage.

IP Technology in hypermarkets

Some of our larger retail stores are now upgrading their analogue CCTV Solutions either to Full IP systems or (where there is already significant investment in analogue cameras) to true ‘Hybrid’ analogue /IP solutions.

We also future proofed the system be utilising CAT5E, CAT6 and Fibre for video transmission which will allow migration over to a fully integrated IP system in the future.
