CCTV – Close Circuit Television and video surveillance systems are now widely accepted as a security measure. They are found in a variety of places, such as garage forecourts, shopping centers, car parks, warehouses and residential properties. This is all to help reduce crime, protect people and property.

CCTV camera systems can provide an instant alert to crime, theft and vandalism.  They provide valuable video evidence of an event. This improves the likelihood of a conviction and of course proving innocence. It also assists in avoiding possible costly lawsuits.

Businesses such as factories and production lines can utilise CCTV to:

  • watch over production control.
  • monitor output. 
  • watch the dangerous or potentially vulnerable areas e.g. where fork lift trucks operate. 
  • an additional tool in implementing the companies health & safety policies and procedures.

Modern, flexible CCTV systems are available from a single camera with a monitor, up to a complete integrated CCTV system with a manned control room. Cameras feature powerful pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) and constant digital recording with instant playback.

CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. A more advanced form of CCTV, utilizing Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), provides recording for possibly many years, with a variety of quality and performance options and extra features (such as motion-detection and email alerts). Technology has moved on so fast since the introduction of these cameras it is now possible to view what the camera views via a laptop, smart phone or desk top computer not just 10 or 100 miles away but you can be on the other side of the world, as long as you have an internet connection. This technology also means a verbal message can be sent to the location, warning people they are being recorded and asking them to vacate the area.
