CCTV cameras capture video images and transmit them through cables or wirelessly to video recorders, which store the footage for future reference. These cameras can be fixed or have the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom, providing a wider coverage area. They may also have night vision capabilities for monitoring in low-light conditions.


The Importance of a Commercial CCTV System

Last year 30% of business premises experienced being the victim of crime, with medium-sized businesses being at the highest risk. A high-quality CCTV system is important in securing a business, reducing its risk of becoming a target of crime, as well as catching suspicious activity on video that can be used as evidence. Not just for security, a camera system can improve efficiencies and ways of working. Commercial CCTV systems are important for a variety of reasons, thus emphasising the need to research key features to look for.

Types of CCTV Cameras

  1. Turret CCTV Cameras: cameras used indoors as well as outdoor solution, offering a wide viewing angle and discreet surveillance.
  2. Bullet CCTV Cameras: Cylindrical cameras designed for outdoor use, weatherproof, and suitable for long-range monitoring of specific areas.
  3. Day/Night CCTV Cameras: Cameras designed to operate in varying lighting conditions using colorVU as well as additional technology such as AcuSense, capturing clear images both during the day and at night which is crucial for proving activity beyond reasonable doubt.

Functions & Advancements of IP CCTV Systems

CCTV systems serve multiple functions, including crime prevention, evidence gathering, and monitoring of activities.

Key Features to Look for in a Commercial CCTV System

1. High-Definition Resolution
When it comes to CCTV, image quality is paramount. High-definition (HD) or Ultra HD (4K) cameras provide sharp, clear footage that allows for better identification and evidence collection. This is crucial in case of incidents that require investigation, such as theft, vandalism, or security breaches.

2. Wide-Angle Lenses
Look for cameras with wide-angle lenses to maximise coverage. Wide-angle lenses reduce blind spots and ensure that you can monitor a larger area with fewer cameras, which is not only cost-effective but also provides a more comprehensive view of your premises.

3. Low-Light & Night Vision Capabilities
Security threats don’t adhere to daylight hours so your cameras should offer excellent low-light and night vision capabilities. Smart Hybrid ColorVu enables cameras to capture high-quality images in darkness, ensuring around-the-clock surveillance.

4. Remote Access & Mobile Integration
Commercial CCTV systems allows you to access live and recorded footage remotely via smartphones, tablets, or computers. This flexibility ensures that you can monitor your business from anywhere in the world, providing peace of mind and the ability to respond swiftly to security events. They provide early notification of the breach, enabling you to act at this point and not just view the incident many hours after.

5. Motion Detection & Alerts
Motion detection with technology such as AcuSense is a valuable feature that can help you conserve storage space and focus on relevant footage. Our system will send real-time alerts to your devices or email when motion is detected with the learning technology to enhance the accuracy of the object and reduce false alarms, so you’re informed of potential security incidents immediately.


6. Scalability
Your business may grow, and therefore your security may evolve. A scalable CCTV system allows you to add more cameras and expand your coverage as your business demands grows. This ensures that your security system can adapt to your changing needs.

7. Data Storage & Backup
An efficient data storage and backup system is essential for retaining and accessing historical footage. Consider systems with ample storage capacity, preferably using Network Video Recorders (NVRs) or cloud-based solutions that offer easy access to past recordings and allow you to decide how long the video is stored for. 

8. Remote Support & Maintenance
Choose a CCTV system that comes with professional support and maintenance options. Regular updates, system health checks, and prompt troubleshooting assistance ensure that your security system remains reliable and up to date.

9. Integration with Other Security Systems
A truly comprehensive security strategy may involve more than just cameras. We suggest a range of systems that can integrate with other security components such as access control, intruder alarms and fire detection system, as we understand every business can be different and unique to what it requires from any system. A site survey and meeting can explain this so that you are better informed to help you make the best decision for your business.

10. Compliance with Legal & Privacy Regulations
Ensure that your chosen camera system complies with the local and national regulations regarding video surveillance and privacy. Non-compliance can result in legal issues and fines, so it’s crucial to address this from the outset.
