CCTV Systems

A visual security tool with a range of Artifical Intelligence led uses

CCTV cameras have traditionally been a strong visual deterrent to criminals as part of business security systems, but if an incident does occur, the footage provides clear evidence of what happened where, when, and who was involved.

The two main types of cameras are ‘fixed’, with a static field of view, and ‘pan / tilt / zoom’ which can rotate horizontally and vertically to be able to view a wider area. And security cameras are available for virtually any security or surveillance application your business or organisation needs, both inside and outside, visible and covert.

The latest systems use IP (Internet Protocol) cameras that can send and receive data via a physical or wireless network and over the internet and enable high definition images to be viewed and analysed from anywhere in the world.

However, if you have an existing analogue CCTV system, it is perfectly possible to run a ‘hybrid’ system with older analogue and new digital cameras together, allowing your business to gradually transition from an old system to a new one.

  • What is the difference between an IP and an analogue CCTV system?

    What is the difference between an IP and an analogue CCTV system?

    An analogue system uses CCTV cameras that are hard wired to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR), whereas an IP system uses a Network Video Recorder (NVR) and can connect to CCTV cameras on your network. This can potentially negate the need for excessive cabling, although cameras can be wired to the NVR where possible. As a general rule IP cameras can have a higher frame rate at higher definition meaning better images are captured. If you would like to know more about the differences, or have any questions about the image quality you might need for your system, please call us to discuss your requirements.

  • Are CCTV cameras static or can they be moved to view things?

    Are CCTV cameras static or can they be moved to view things?

    There are generally two types of CCTV camera – static and ‘pan, tilt & zoom’ (PTZ). A static CCTV camera gives you a fixed view of an area you wish to monitor or protect; however a PTZ camera can be controlled by a either an operator using a joystick, artificial intelligence software, or linked to detectors or motion sensors to control the movement of the camera. The advantage of a PTZ camera is that you can change the view to cover a larger area where required.
