Security System Needs

security-camera-1316862-639x852When deciding to add CCTV or HD CCTV security systems to your home or small business, you need to think about a few of your options and what is best for your needs and premises.

High Definition or normal CCTV?

Although HD CCTV is relatively new to the market, there are some great affordable systems to get that extra resolution and performance compared to normal CCTV systems. It is ultimately your choice however whether you feel you need the added benefits, and we can help determine which system will be right for you.

Do you want only inside cameras, or outside ones as well?

Inside cameras tend to be cheaper because they don’t need to be weather proof like their outdoor counterparts. You also want to think about whether you would want an outdoor camera to be in view to deter burglars or someplace hidden for discreet monitoring. You will also need to think about how many you want, which will depend upon the areas you want monitored and if more than one camera is needed to do the job.

Motion detection or 24/7 coverage?

Systems are set up differently and can either record constantly, or some can be set to only record when motion is detected. CCTV that is set to record all the time will need a lot more memory to store the footage, but sometimes motion detection software may not pick up on everything, so it will depend on how often you need your space monitored. You can free up storage by reviewing tapes and discarding the data every once in a while as well.

Do you want instant remote access?

Many security cameras on the market now are able to be accessed remotely by a device connected to the internet such as mobile phones, computers or tablets. Along with remote monitoring, some systems allow you to change settings and control the cameras remotely as well, such as change the position, zoom etc which can be helpful.

HD CCTV for your business

CCTV is often necessary for your company to deter criminals and catch any unwanted activity that may happen.

Replacing standard CCTV systems with high definition ones helps see details that may not have shown up on standard systems such as facial details or logos on clothing. You get a clearer picture to work with meaning you have a higher chance to identifying criminals or identifying small movements from customers or staff.

Having an HD security system for your business to deter crime seems standard, but your systems can be much more beneficial than that. Along with the benefit of deterring vandals and criminals, you can also monitor your staff and customers. Monitoring your staff can be an effective management tool, improving staff productivity and theft that may be occurring from employees. Having your premise constantly monitored means that you will catch everything that happens as well, helping the prevention of false insurance claims, and also ensuring health and safety regulations are enforced.

The Importance Of CCTV For Businesses In Doncaster



There are many businesses in Doncaster serving the local population of more than 300,000 people. For these businesses, it is essential that comprehensive CCTV systems are installed in order to protect the safety, security, integrity, and property of their work premises.

These are the main reasons why every local business should have CCTV in Doncaster:

1. They act as a deterrent. A business property is far less likely to experience any theft or criminal activity if there is a visible CCTV camera on display that can act as a deterrent.

2. Remote surveillance. Even business owners who are seemingly chained to their desks need some time away. With remote surveillance it is possible to be away from an office, a store, or a warehouse and still have visibility of activities happening on work premises.

3. Protect your customers. When you work in the service industry, you have a duty to protect your customers as well as your premises and employees. CCTV used in a service atmosphere can deter criminal activity and provide your customers with the security they deserve.

4. Monitor employee activity. CCTV is not only useful for deterring and monitoring criminal activity, it can also be used to monitor employee activity when you are away from the office.
