CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) is a visual surveillance technology designed for monitoring a variety of environments and activities. CCTV systems typically involve a fixed (or "dedicated") communications link between cameras and monitors.

We are sure that you would wish to avoid having to catch those who are perpetrating crime against your organisation. Generally, once a camera system is installed, it will only be the foolhardy who attempt to perpetrate offences within its field of view. Perpetrators are often caught but for the majority of the time it will provide a very high level of deterrence. The steps that are taken when designing your CCTV system are:

  • Careful examination of the issues that have prompted you to consider the purchase of CCTV
  • Discussion of the different types of equipment (recording by hard disk recorder or VCR, static or pan tilt and zoom cameras, stand-alone CCTV or a system on your computer network, etc.) so that you can make an intelligent choice as to what best suits your needs.
  • Ensure you are aware of the limitations of CCTV.
  • Conduct a complete survey of the areas you wish to protect.
  • Produce a complete specification and costs.
  • Our security systems are tailored to meet the needs of your individual business.
