Things to consider when choosing CCTV systems
Internal and or external cameras
Your situation may simply require a fixed camera overlooking your doorstep
Fixed, varifocal and PTZ cameras
Fixed and varifocal lenses are restricted to pre-selected views while PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) allow operators to follow suspicious individuals as an incident unfolds.
Images can be viewed by a single monitor or distributed to several monitoring locations. Cameras can be pre-set to tour a premises or sequential switching can be defined and built in. Other CCTV cameras can detect movement, zoom in on the suspicious activity, and follow the suspect – this is an auto tracking Pan Tilt and Zoom camera.
HD CCTV or Analogue cameras
Grainy old analogue cameras have advanced but HD CCTV systems offer remarkably better image quality in colour. This means identification of hair colour and a suspect’s clothing is much improved. Zooming in on features or close-ups of number plates makes the HD option ideal for monitoring car parks.
Another advantage HD has over analogue is the area covered. For a 1 mega pixel camera, this is four times that of a standard analogue equivalent.
An existing analogue system can be upgraded gradually by replacing the recording and storage equipment first before replacing the cameras at a later date.
Remote CCTV Monitoring
To guarantee a fast response to any unwanted activities we offer 24hr remote CCTV monitoring via our NSI Gold approved monitoring station. The system can include loud speakers so if an operator in the monitoring station spots some suspicious activity they can confront the intruder verbally before warning that the Police have been called and are on their way.
