Question: How will I know what CCTV system I need?

CCTV systems are quite complex set-ups, particularly when it comes to large premises. For any CCTV system to be effective, it must offer a good level of coverage and be able to work in whatever environmental conditions it is likely to face. Each CCTV camera will need to be linked to a monitor, and getting the control room set-up just right can be extremely difficult without professional guidance.  We recommend that you ask a trained surveyor to inspect your premises and work out what kind of equipment you’ll need to achieve the optimum level of security.

Depending on the kind of business you operate in, you may decide to make your CCTV fairly discreet. Other businesses may decide to make their system stand out to discourage any criminal activity. You’ll also need to take into account lighting conditions, whether or not you’ll need audio coverage, and what kind of software you’ll use to monitor your premises. These are all things that a trained professional will be able to advise on after interviewing you and inspecting your premises. One last thing to note is scalability. If you plan on growing your business and associated premises, you’ll need a system that can grow with it, allowing you to add cameras and expand the network.  All important considerations when it comes to choosing the right CCTV system for your business.
