    What camera resolution do I need?


    The camera resolution required will depend on whether you want to detect, observe, recognise or identify.

    To get accurate identification from your CCTV cameras, you will need 40 pixels per face or 5 pixels/cm. That’s why most of our installs include HD CCTV cameras, between 3 and 8-megapixel resolution. 8MP CCTV cameras are the equivalent of 4K CCTV cameras.

    Our system designers will recommend the most appropriate CCTV cameras to secure your premises with continuous recording.


    What is the best CCTV system for my business?


    The best CCTV system for your business depends on several factors. That’s why we offer a free quote and no-obligation consultation to determine your exact requirements. Ensuring as a minimum, we meet your security needs while taking into account budget and technical constraints.

    Do I need a licence for CCTV?


    You do not require a CCTV licence. 

    However, organisations, businesses, and sole traders who process personal information need to provide details of their CCTV usage. You should include this information in your notification to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) to comply with GDPR obligations.

    • Wired and Wireless Cameras
    • Fixed cameras
    • PTZ camera (pan tilt zoom)

    4K Definition CCTV Resolution
    The benefits of

    4K Resolution CCTV in Essex

    4K CCTV cameras are currently towards the top end of the CCTV range in resolution. They offer excellent picture quality like HD cameras, but you can see even more detail at double the resolution. Additionally, in some instances, 4K cameras can remove the need for cameras to have an optical zoom, so although they are the more expensive option, it may be worth comparing them with HD cameras. If you are looking for highly crisp picture quality or extending the viewing distance of your existing CCTV system, 4K is a great option.

    High Definition CCTV Resolution
    The benefits of

    High Resolution CCTV in Essex

    High resolution or high definition CCTV cameras are popular due to their high pixel count, providing more precise images and details. As a result, identifying faces and text from greater distances become easier. HD CCTV cameras offer a powerful and cost-effective CCTV system solution combined with optical zoom. Additionally, they provide compatibility with advanced detection software like people counting systems and video analytics.

    Standard Definition CCTV Resolution
    The benefits of

    Standard Resolution CCTV in Essex

    Affordability is the only benefit of standard definition CCTV cameras. However, Standard Definition CCTV cameras provide low-quality images, making it challenging to identify intruders, objects and vehicles. If both cost and network bandwidth for wireless applications is an issue, and you merely want to determine the presence of something or someone, then SD CCTV may be an option.

    4K 3840 x 2160 pixels
