Wireless: We install modern wireless CCTV Systems and are an easy way of quickly installing a CCTV System without the need to run cables around your property with resolutions of around 2.0mp (Full HD).                                 

 Wired: A wired CCTV System can take higher resolutions (definition) of up to 8MP 4K (Ultra High Definition). The advantage of a higher definition is to clearly identify a person’s face, clearly read vehicle registration plates and vehicle signage etc.

CCTV MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS

cctv-repairs

Maintenance and repair are essential for the long-term success of any CCTV system. No matter how good the equipment, there is always the chance that operating problems can occur. The risk of an equipment failure is always present. If this happens, then your security is immediately compromised. As soon as a CCTV system goes offline, then the risk of criminal attacks becomes much more likely.

Minimising this risk is important, which is why every business should give priority to setting up a maintenance and repair contract. Careful, thorough, regular checks carried out by expert personnel will ensure that your system will continue to operate at maximum efficiency. Our experts can identify all minor faults in the system before your security is compromised, and it is too late to act.

An added advantage is that by having systems checked and serviced regularly, the equipment will last longer.

CCTV MONITORING FOR YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS

cctv-monitoring

This ensures fewer insurance claims and losses as well as greater management, meaning that you can devote more time to building a successful business.

We can set up a professional CCTV monitoring system in your property to suit your needs. By linking the system into a professional 24-hour monitoring station, you can reduce your overall security costs as the need for mobile or permanent security patrols is decreased.

Frequently Asked QUestions

How easy is it to install CCTV at home?

Anyone who has time, DIY ability, and basic networking understanding can install CCTV at home. It can take between 4 to 36 hours dependent on how many cameras and the size of the building. If you haven’t got the time, ability, or confidence, it’s best to leave it experts like us. Not only can you feel assured the installation is done correctly, you can also include one our maintenance packages to save you hassle in the future.

How long does CCTV footage last?

The ICO’s CCTV code of practice states that footage should not be retained longer than necessary. The police recommend 31 days with low-risk properties sometimes opting for 14 days. This gives plenty of time for the authorities to retrieve footage for evidence. You don’t have to worry about manually deleting the data yourself. Our systems will automatically override old footage to automatically keep you complaint.

Is it legal to record audio on CCTV?

If you record audio without good reason and people being notified, you’re at a very high risk of being prosecuted. There are some rare cases in the workplace where audio recording is permitted, such as where protection of public workers outweighs the risks to personal privacy. It is advised for you to contact the ICO to verify this. For the most domestic and commercial CCTV installations, recording audio is illegal and should be avoided.

Where can I point my CCTV cameras?

You can point your CCTV cameras only within your private property boundaries. If this is unavoidable, privacy masks can be used. Our CCTV installers can advise when we survey your home.

Can the police request CCTV footage?

Police can request your CCTV footage if they believe it contains evidence for a crime. If you refuse, they can get a warrant and seize it. If your cameras are pointing within your private property boundaries, the chances of them requesting footage are slim.

Can you put CCTV outside your house?

If your CCTV captures images of people outside of your private property (your house), you become a data controller. According to the law, you are responsible to comply with data protection laws. This involves displaying signs and processing people’s personal data properly and fairly. If your camera must capture this data, we’ll recommend appropriate actions to help you comply.

Do you need internet for CCTV camera?

You do not need internet for CCTV cameras. We have a variety of options for those living in rural areas where internet is not option. Even for smart camera systems, they can operate on back-up batteries and record to SD cards when internet is cut. For those worried about criminals hacking and gaining control over internet connected CCTV, there are precautions and practices we can do to put your mind at ease.

Do you have to display signs if you have CCTV?

If your CCTV points to outside your private property, then you must display signs that are visible by people who are affected. Having a large, visible CCTV sign also acts as a deterrent.

Does CCTV add value to your home?

CCTV systems can be factored into the value of a property. Even so, any future owner wants to know their investment is properly protected and so a CCTV system adds appeal. Any homeowner should consider adding a state-of-the-art home security system not only to protect themselves, but as part of their long term investment.
