It makes sense that you would want to get your money’s worth out of your CCTV system. For example, if you already have CCTV cameras, chances are you may not be too concerned about replacing it if it works just fine.

But is it working as well as you think it is? Review these elements and you’ll see how easy it could be to upgrade an old system.

From analogue to digital

Old CCTV systems are based on analogue. Newer digital systems are far sharper and more powerful, and provide an altogether better service. You can also add in other cameras later if you want to – something you cannot do with an old analogue system.

Better images, more powerful evidence

If you’ve got CCTV to protect your home or business, you want to know it can capture images of would-be burglars with pinpoint accuracy. New cameras can do just that, providing they are set up correctly. You won’t be stuck with vague and hazy images of someone who is looking to break the law. Instead, clear and sharp colour images in full HD will be captured – and these are ideal to help the police catch the person they’re after.

Discover how easy it is to enjoy great CCTV images and coverage

Once installation of a modern CCTV system is complete, you can appreciate the sharp images your system will provide. These can be viewed on internet-enabled devices, so a smartphone, computer, or laptop (even a Mac) can get you access to watch whatever is happening right now. Many cameras can be controlled from other locations, too. For example, you could swivel and tilt the camera monitoring your back garden at home, even when you are relaxing on a beach in Spain.
