We offer the very latest and modern digital technology in the market for your CCTV installation. Choose from fixed view high definition cameras that allow you to digitally zoom in on live and recorded video; multi-functional 360° rotating cameras that can turn and zoom in under your control, cameras that see at night with their on board infra-red lighting. There’s also the option to build in infra-red motion detection or other triggers to turn cameras on and notify a CCTV monitoring centre where appropriate.

During the CCTV installation, Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is provided for recording. (This is sometimes also known as a network video recorder (NVR)) This device automatically archives high resolution digital video and enables you to download to disk or USB stick. With this technology, there’s no need for a daily tape change or any other admin as the CCTV footage is automatically overwritten when the disk is full or after your specified retention period has been reached.

You can review recordings locally on a CCTV monitor, through your office network, using broadband, a remote computer, via your chosen monitoring centre, or even your own Apple or Android mobile device.

There are differences in the way analogue and digital CCTV cameras collect and record their data. Analogue cameras record images which must be converted to digital format. To view the video captured by analogue cameras, the DVR must be connected to a router or monitor. To be viewed remotely, it must be broadcast through an internal network.

Digital CCTV on the other hand has no conversion process as the video is recorded in digital format. This footage can be viewed remotely. Analogue systems are now known as an outdated form of camera security. Now is the time to upgrade to a digital system. To update your system, contact us today.

Night vision is an essential feature that you should opt for when selecting security cameras.
