CCTV & Security Systems
With crime being unexpected and carried out at random, you could potentially be the next target! A Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system will give you all-around peace of mind and will deter any threat from potential burglary and intrusion by unwanted visitors. Be a step ahead, by protecting your property with 24/7 recording and remote access with control from your smart device and be rest assured that your property, loved ones and valuables will be safe and secure.
Are you thinking about having a CCTV security system installed, but confused by the types of systems available? The more advanced systems require either ethernet or coaxial cable, depending on the type of cameras and recorder being fitted. Most homes are fitted with either directional or wide pan view cameras, being among the most popular cameras of choice. CCTV systems of today along with most recorders, come with cloud-based recording, meaning there’s no requirement of a physical hard drive.
There’s a lot to consider when choosing between wired and wireless types of CCTV systems. Below we’ll detail the pros and cons of a wired and wireless system.
Wired security systems require cables for power, video transmission and internet connection. Many homeowners or commercial customers with a large property will require more than the standard 4 cameras, so will require a system that can support and link the cameras together. A wired system can support up to 16 cameras along with a required Digital Video Recorder (DVR) or Network Video Recorder (NVR).
Wireless CCTV systems or a preferred option over the wired systems. Uptime is 100% and the footage is remotely sent from the cameras to the recorder. Although accessing the system is controlled by Wi-Fi, you will require mains-power to the recorder and a local internet access point. Wireless cameras are also more flexible when it comes to mounting and installation, and in addition, can also be wired as a backup. The location of the recorder will be key in this type of installation as Wi-Fi coverage will need to be optimised in order for a perfect reception from all installed cameras. The drawback to wireless cameras is that you would be limited to a max of 4 cameras.
