How do we design the best systems?
The same assessment method is used, whether designing a conventional, HD or IP megapixel system. To ensure the system meets the customers’ needs, the surveyor must first find out what their expectations are, this comes hand in hand with a detailed site survey. To achieve the best results, we also consider all the different types of equipment available.
This is no mean task, as there is an extensive range of components to choose from, along with continual advancements in technology and new products.

All our Systems must also comply with data protection legislation. To ensure we achieve this goal, we only use our most experienced surveyors with an in depth knowledge of every aspect of CCTV solutions. By maintaining close links with our suppliers and manufactures, attending regular training seminars and trade shows, the surveyors are continually kept up to date with all the products available.

CCTV code of practice
When installing CCTV it is important that you are aware of the Data Protection guidelines so to ensure you operate within the law.


Equipment specification
Our specifications use the latest technology for all our CCTV systems. Once the customer consultation has taken place, we can choose the most suitable equipment for their requirements. There are a multitude of camera types and recording devices, each one has its place in a CCTV system. CCTV IP technology works in exactly the same way as a computer network. This allows equipment to be installed as a standalone system and/or integrated into the customers existing computer network. We have detailed some basic descriptions, of the most common cameras and ancillaries used within our installations, so you have a better understanding of the equipment available to you.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) Systems
Our ANPR cameras are capable of identifying vehicle number plates under any lighting conditions. Integrated into access control system via a specialist DVR or PC software, they can automate the control of barriers, gates and bollards. PC integration will also allow advanced searching, vehicle monitoring and alarm functions. Whether automating vehicle access to commercial premises, car parks, caravan parks or theft prevention on petrol station forecourts, ANPR’s is an ideal solution. 
CCTV Recording
As IP mega pixel systems require fast processing and a large video storage capacity, high specification PC’s are used instead of DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders). CCTV images can also be recorded using storage devices within the camera or locally in close proximity to a set of cameras.

Bullet (bodied) and Dome Camera type

Within reason, there is no limit to the resolutions available. We commonly use between 2 MP and 10 MP. As technology progresses these resolutions will almost certainly increase. Bullet Camera units have small cylindrical housings. They can come with integral high-powered infra-red (IR) lighting for low light operation. Static Domes - They have the same specification of camera and are mounted in an even more compact, dome type housing. They can come with integral high-powered infra-red (IR) lighting for low light operation.  Bodied Cameras - We commonly use between 2 MP and 10 MP. Although larger and more expensive than their more petite cousins, their size permits them to be more flexible, offering more features, such as a higher resolution and low light capability. As they come without lenses, you can pick the exact lens to suit your needs. They are available from, extremely wide fish eye, to high powered zoom lenses, which can see incredible distances. When installed outside, a large housing will be needed. This too can have its advantages, for example large housings are more visible and so act as a bigger deterrent. They can also be fitted with heaters for humid environments, very high powered IR lighting and PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) mounting systems. 

PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) Camera Choices

Choosing the best type of PTZ for any site depends on many factors such as - • Camera location • Light levels (with or without infra-red lighting) • Longevity • Ease of maintenance • The environment such as very wet, humid or corrosive locations or areas where vandalism is prevalent.

Fully Functional Dome Cameras

Like bullet cameras, fully functional domes are extremely compact. They have an integral high specification camera, with very low light capability, a high quality zoom lens and heaters. These cameras are ideal for common applications, where a simple cost effective solution is required. 

PTZ Conventional Cameras

These PTZ units use an identical camera type as that of the conventional bodied cameras above. Although larger and more expensive than most dome cameras, as modular units, they are much more versatile. For example, they can include long range IR lighting, extra powerful zoom lenses and have a large choice of cameras. Typically they are used on high security compounds and large commercial premises. The downsides are, they’re much larger, heavier units, being more difficult to install, higher maintenance and can’t look directly below. 

Ultra-High Resolution Dome Camera

This is an extremely useful unit for high security applications. It uses a 360-degree lens and high resolution MP camera. Using specialist de-warping software allows this dome camera to act as a PTZ. Its biggest advantage over a normal PTZ is its ability to pan and zoom into areas using recorded images. This ensures any incident within its field of view is captured and recorded, thus available for retrospective playback.
