CCTV – Its All the Same Isn’t it?

Everyday we speak with clients who either have or need CCTV and most of them are used to the “Crimewatch” style grainy black and white images that are used in TV and Newspaper appeals by the Police.

CCTV technology has moved in leaps and bounds in recent years.  We have moved from Shotgun Coax – you remember it well, a power cable stuck onto a coax, to Power Over Coax and now IP cameras, both making installation quicker and easier.  Camera technology has progressed with higher resolution, integrated IR lighting, AI learning to identify cars and humans and now colour images in low light scenarios thanks to clever lens and aperture design combined with white LED lighting.

We work with leading manufacturers and our clients to offer the best CCTV systems for their situation.  There isn’t a “one size fits all” option as different lens sizes may be required, specific AI features needed – the list of requirements goes on…

The online marketplace is awash with kit offering “high definition” CCTV at bargain prices, or the “zillion” mega pixel ranges, well higher is better – or is it?  All clever marketing plans to assist you parting with your money, but will they fulfil your needs? Possibly, but if you want a system that works for you, talk to us and we will design something that dots the “I’s” and crosses the “T’s”
