Video surveillance is a fact of life

And for a good reason, it works!

In recent years cybersecurity threats have risen tremendously with disastrous consequences and as a result the landscape has changed dramatically. Physical security, mainly CCTV, still remains the most important defence.
In the UK we have more CCTV cameras per head of population than any other country.
The highly advanced technology of modern security cameras allows businesses to lower cost and risk by protecting their assets with continuous and seamless monitoring of their facilities as well as safety management and productivity improvements of the personnel.

Video surveillance

Owning a business comes with a lot of responsibilities. Video surveillance has been the go-to solution to prevent and resolve security problems. Essentially CCTV systems provide better control and enhanced security for your business.
The reality is that installing a reliable CCTV system is the most logical move since it presents you that preventative upper hand when it comes to safety.



Every business is unique

And a good CCTV system is for life, not just for Christmas!

Due to the latest technological advances, surveillance systems are becoming more affordable, reliable and effective, making them the preferred security method for businesses.
A properly installed CCTV system provides your employees with a safer working environment and promotes a professional image and a responsible employer ethos to the visitors of your premises. It demonstrates that you understand the risks and that you take responsibility for health and safety as well as the well-being of your most valuable assets.
We work closely with you to identify the best CCTV system design for your business.
Unlike the previous analogue systems that were installed by a traditional installation company, digital networked recording equipment and IP camera equipment is now an extension of your data network. It is therefore important to consider having your video surveillance system managed by your IT team who understand your IT infrastructure and can assess the impact and implement an effective and appropriate solution that won’t affect performance or compromise the security of your existing network.




Car park

Having a safe and secure car park makes your customers, visitors and personnel to feel at ease. Good low light cameras with pan, tilt and zoom option will offer you this convenience.





CCTV in your warehouse will protect your stock, equipment and will create a safe working environment.
Due to their nature, in general warehouses are laid out in a CCTV friendly pattern and mostly monitored by wide angle and bullet cameras.





Security cameras create a safer office, promote a professional and courteous working environment.
Wide angle dome cameras are the perfect choice for these kinds of setup without being intrusive.

CCTV, the most credible eye witness

“Memory is not a video tape".
(Terrell & Weaver, 2008)
Memory is “more akin to putting puzzle pieces together than retrieving a video recording.”
(Arkowitz & Lilienfeld 2009)
These hard-hitting studies show that, not only does memory become stagnated in an emotional situation but is also malleable as a result of "misinformation effect".
(Loftus, Donders, Hoffman and Schooler, 1989)
CCTV doesn’t suffer any of the above and making it the most credible eye witness.

We are a nationally established company committed to providing the highest quality of service to our customers for almost four decades.

Tailored for your business

Though it’s hard to defend a company property from all eventualities, you can add an extra layer of security by installing a reliable and future proof surveillance system.

A proper design needs to use the least amount of equipment and yet still provide uninterrupted, reliable surveillance. The first and most critical step of the process is the initial survey and with the right planning and understanding makes for a smooth and successful deployment. By surveying your premises and discussing your requirements we can identify the hot spots, lighting conditions, exposure to elements and the camera types to be used, whether a wide angle, thermal, infrared, bullet or panoramic.
This consultative approach to CCTV helps us to appreciate every aspect of the installation from lighting (angle of the light, strength of the light, quality of the light, movement of the light), observation area identification, distance to subject, resolution, type of the camera, video transmission type, recording resolution, storage type and capacity, to mention but a few.
Carefully chosen cameras to suit the environment and location will in turn keep the cost down and will be easier to manage and maintain.
A professionally installed system gives you peace of mind that your business has around the clock protection from an effective, future-proof security solution that can be managed from any location, from any device at any time day or night.

Intelligent surveillance

Intelligent surveillance

When it comes to the overall safety and security of your business, there is no better way than installing a video surveillance system.

As well as remote viewing, proprietary software can monitor video feeds to pick up events, activities and specified behaviour through the recognition of movement patterns. Alerts are generated and sent to relevant people.
Digital CCTV systems are scalable and future proof. As your coverage area grows, a digital system can easily grow with your company one step at a time. Digital cameras can be added as needed and easily integrated into the network. Analogue systems cannot be integrated as easily, and it can be costlier to place analogue cameras in remote locations because of its wiring needs.
Our experienced team of CCTV professionals understand other important factors such as correct camera types, optimum positioning, lighting level considerations and identifying potential obstacles that may occur over a 24-hour period. This could be something as simple as delivery lorries loading or unloading that obscure the view into your warehouse doors.
We offer the latest DVRs (Digital Video Recorder for analogue cameras up to 1080P), NVRs (Network Video Recorder for IP cameras up to 4K), HVRs (Hybrid Video Recorder), VMS (Video Management System) and cameras to suit all possible scenarios, from wide angle to infrared.
