Why do I need a CCTV system


Installing CCTV is the most effective and cost-efficient way of protecting your home, family, business and your staff from theft or violence.

And yes, even though Shrewsbury and Shropshire as a whole have relatively low break-in rates versus the rest of the UK, demand for CCTV installation is growing.

Anti-social behaviour is on the rise. So installing a CCTV system becomes an extra level of protection, a pair of ever-watching eyes.

CCTV not only acts a visible deterrent but it’s an ideal way to monitor all areas of your home. Information captured by your CCTV system is used to back you up by providing the police with evidence.

What benefits does a CCTV camera

system offer?

CCTV systems go well beyond a standard video camera camera setup, here’s how:

  1. We install CCTV systems with integrated motion detection. Meaning the camera is only engaged when motion is detected
  2. Infrared lighting allows CCTV systems to light up an area without anyone ever noticing. These cameras have an ambient light sensor that switches the infrared light on when daylight fades.
  3. Real-time alerting is a cost effective feature in modern CCTV systems. Push notifications are sent to the owner if an event is triggered and video is access via a smartphone or tablet.
  4. Cloud storage removes the need for periodically backing up or changing media. Instead authorised users can access recorded footage over any network.
  5. Gone are the days where WiFi was unreliable. These days wireless CCTV systems are just as reliable as wired systems, ideal for areas where trailing cables is not viable.
  6. Unlike a standard camera or intercom system, combining video and audio into one unit helps make it easy to identify accidental trespassing in restricted areas.
  7. Number plate recognition is quite an advanced feature. Not only does it simplify parking access needs but enables datalogging and optimisation of space/road usage.

What to look for in a CCTV system

Installing a home CCTV system is a great way to give you peace of mind when you’re not home. For a business owner, a CCTV system protects both your employees and your assets 24/7. Although there are many options to consider when choosing the best CCTV system for your needs, here’s what we think you should be considering:


Weather and Dust Protection


You need to know where your equipment is going and how exposed it will be to the elements. Outside CCTV needs to be IP64 or above to protect from moisture and dust, IP66 would be more suitable from extreme weather. If you’re installing a CCTV camera system inside of a factory then IP64 or IP65 would be most suitable.


Some commercial CCTV systems are designed to cover a whole building. For home systems or small businesses, our experienced CCTV systems experts will help identify the best solution on a budget, be that 360 cameras to cover a wider surface area or just key access points.

Poor CCTV resolution can make it difficult for police to identify and prosecute, depending on the distance and lighting conditions we can advise you on the most cost-effective CCTV system installation for the job

Recording System

Although a CCTV system can act as a deterrent all on its own, we believe a high quality CCTV installation covers all the areas, especially when it comes to playback. These days cameras can be connected over a network and record directly to cloud storage, but if you prefer we can record onto physical media at your premises.
