Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video surveillance, uses video cameras to provide images to a monitor (or recorder) via a private transmission system and is not publicly distributed.
CCTV comes in two main forms both of which are normally recorded locally:
CCTV has changed a lot in the 21st Century and in recent years has increased in popularity mainly due to the improved availability of the equipment, leading to lower equipment prices, along with signiﬁcant increases in performance for both the video cameras and recording solutions. The technology, when designed and implemented correctly, can vastly improve existing security systems and reduce business costs.
Current technologies are:
The most modern systems are the IP type and whilst these use the latest technology and provide superior image quality, this would need to be considered against the budget for a project. It is important to carefully consider placement of cameras in order to achieve efficient and cost effective results.
We have been designing, installing and maintaining CCTV systems since 2000
We take many factors into consideration when designing CCTV systems:
We use the latest software for system design to ascertain camera views, angles, heights and lens sizes
We design, install, service and maintain CCTV systems to National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Code of Practice 104 (NSI NCP 104), BS EN 50132-7 and to BS8418 for detector activated CCTV systems
We are independently audited by NSI against the above standards
We specialise in IP systems. We can ensure either dedicated networks or secure VLANS are used for your security systems
We have experience in the design and installation of advanced systems including:
Our Engineers receive regular training
We have extensively integrated CCTV with other security systems
We have written our own integration modules to provide clients with enhanced systems
We are able to take over existing systems to provide maintenance, service and repairs or to expand and/or upgrade parts of a system or systems in their entirety
