About Our CCTV Systems

CCTV is becoming an increasingly important part of the way we live. Whether you want to protect your home, your business or your assets, a CCTV system can help you do it. CCTV systems have many benefits, whether as a way to potentially identify trespassers and burglars or as a highly effective visual deterrent. However you choose to deploy CCTV, it can have much to offer you.

Where can you use CCTV?

CCTV can be pretty much used anywhere for any purpose – as long as you have something that you want to protect, you can use a CCTV system to do it. CCTV systems come in all manner of shapes and sizes, depending on where they’re used.

Generally, however, CCTV systems can be broken up into domestic and commercial categories.

Domestic CCTV systems

Domestic CCTV systems are those generally used around the home. There are many types of CCTV camera available, but for most domestic uses, you won’t require a complicated installation. You may want a CCTV camera that captures the front and back of your property, to cover any potential entry points for burglars and trespassers. You could also consider an internal CCTV system if you want to make sure that the interior of your property and its occupants are visually protected. Domestic interior CCTV systems are usually as unobtrusive as possible.

Commercial CCTV systems

Commercial CCTV systems are those that are used to help protect businesses. The function of a commercial CCTV system is the same, namely to provide protection against trespassing and theft, but the systems themselves can be quite different. They will usually be more complex, encompassing multiple cameras joined via a CCTV network, to provide as much coverage as possible around and inside the business premises. It’s a matter of potential risk and reward versus the budget a business has to invest in the system that determines its exact nature.

What about wireless CCTV?

You may have heard that wireless CCTV systems are becoming more and more popular, and it’s true. In a world where even toasters and refrigerators have wireless connectivity, it should be unsurprising that there is a CCTV option too.

Wireless CCTV networks generally allow access to the feed from a distance. So they can be useful, for example, if you’re going to be travelling away from home and you want to make sure it’s safe while you’re away, or to keep tabs on your property while you’re at work. Wireless CCTV cameras can also be useful if you want to protect an asset that is usually away from you. For example, if you have a valuable car stored in a garage that’s away from your home, you can use wireless CCTV to keep tabs on it. Or say a business that has something away from their premises that they want to keep secure. It allows consistent monitoring, without taking the time to go there physically.

Which type of CCTV camera is best for you?

There are many different types of CCTV camera, to the point where there will be a perfect option for you no matter what you want to do with it. Here are just two of the most common types of camera that are used in CCTV systems.

Dome cameras:
Dome cameras are available for both internal and external use. The camera is hidden within the ‘dome’ which makes it very difficult for someone to tell which way it’s facing. This air of uncertainty can act as a powerful deterrent. They’re also fairly easy to install, and the fact they are difficult to reach and robust means they offer a good level of resistance to vandalism.

Bullet cameras:
Long and cylindrical in shape, bullet cameras are perfect for using outside and they can generally offer better image resolution at distance. The protective casing means that dust, dirt, and other elements have a much lesser chance of smearing the lens and blurring the image. There are multiple distance level lenses available, depending on usage, and they can offer night vision and thermal options too.

These designs form the basis of a broad selection of CCTV options. You can have dedicated tilt and zoom cameras, long-distance cameras, detachable lens cameras, day/night cameras, and so many more options depending on your requirements.
