CCTV Security Systems
If you're looking for a CCTV security system to protect a home or small business, in the UK - you've come to the right place.
CCTV is used extensively in commercial and retail environments and, is now becoming far more acceptable in the domestic situation. With cameras becoming much smaller and more discreet than ever before, you can view your driveway through a camera that you would probably struggle to see from the pavement.
The old method of recording to VHS video cassettes has now been superseded with the introduction of the Digital Video Recorder (DVR) with built in hard-drive recording facility. DVR's can link to a traditional Video or a PC enabling you to copy out the evidence. They also control the images from multiple cameras, where as before an expensive Multiplexor was required.
With a DVR, the recording can be programmed to either stop once the disc is full or to loop and start recording over the oldest data, so that you can always retain the latest pre-determined period of time, depending on the size of the disk (80Gb, 120Gb, 250Gb, and so on).
It is easy in a domestic situation to keep at least 3-4 weeks images, so without having to touch the system for months, you can always see the last few weeks data. (ie after returning from holiday, or whenever an incident takes place).
Thanks to IP (internet based) technology, it is now possible to monitor a site from anywhere on the planet.
So, if you're looking for a good reliable CCTV system for your home or business and you'd like to discuss the options available to you.
