There is no doubt that an IP CCTV system will give a much higher resolution picture with better detail than a standard analogue system. There are still thousands of analogue CCTV cameras installed across the country and while many businesses are choosing to upgrade to IP CCTV there is still a role for modern analogue CCTV.
Analogue CCTV systems are reliable and offer good value for money. Plus specialised analogue cameras can offer advantages over IP in certain environments.
Analogue cameras can also be incorporated into ‘hybrid’ solutions. A hybrid CCTV system can record both analogue and IP cameras on the same recorder. A Digital Video Recorder (DVR) will convert the incoming video signal from the cameras to digital, compress it and then record images to a hard drive. We will advise you on the range Digital Recording and Connectivity options to meet your security system requirements.
An Analogue system is straight-forward to install using standard coaxial cable and without the need for the involvement of IT or Network departments.
We are highly experienced in both IP and analogue CCTV and as a truly independent company we will provide expert unbiased advice on the systems that will best meet all of your operational cost requirements.
We provide a broad range of analogue security cameras including Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) and PTZ Dome Cameras and Static Cameras.
Transmitting and storing CCTV images using the IP protocol widely used on computer networks is the basis of IP CCTV. It is a technology that brings integration and infrastructure advantages over legacy analogue CCTV systems that rely on dedicated coaxial cabling systems. IP CCTV can offer a number of benefits over analogue systems, including greater flexibility, enhanced performance and easier installation.
Benefits of IP CCTV:
As an independent specialist we install and support a wide range of IP CCTV products from leading manufacturers including: Avigilon, March Networks, 360 Vision Technology and VideoIQ

Whatever the crime, whatever loss, no company can fully protect itself from crime nor can it be immune from its effects. Everyone feels the effects of crime either directly, perhaps measured in financial loss, or indirectly by an incalculable effect upon the business. Indirect repercussion costs are sometimes more damaging to the business than the crime itself, commercial loss and employee dissatisfaction are additional negative crime factors, which inevitably will impact the business and thereby further reduce business cohesion and profit.
New products and technologies have evolved to further enhance the opportunity for companies to protect their business and assets from crime.
