    Frequently Asked Questions


    How many security cameras do I need for my business?


    The number of cameras you require will vary depending on the scale of your property. Additionally, we consider the potential weak spots around your premises. During your free site survey, our technicians will help you recognise potential risks to your property and highlight critical areas. We then use this information to recommend a suitable system for your needs and budget.


    How much does it cost to install CCTV?


    CCTV installation costs vary significantly due to the wide range of options available. Contributing factors to cost include:

    • The number of cameras.
    • Technical specifications of the cameras.
    • The complexity of the installation.

    That’s why we always offer a free site survey to determine the best solution for you and a fixed quote.


    What camera resolution do I need?


    HD CCTV cameras are the standard for the majority of installations. Cameras between 3 and 8 megapixels provide sharp images that help identify intruders and criminality. The higher-end, 4K cameras produce the highest quality images. Ultimately, the resolution you need will depend on your objective. Detect? Observe? Identify? Our experts are always at hand to help find the right solution for you.


    What is the best CCTV system for my business?


    There is no single CCTV security system that suits all businesses. That’s why we offer a free site survey to establish the most appropriate system for your needs. 

    We work with you to identify potential security risks and high traffic areas and recommend the best cameras for your budget. You will receive a free quote tailored to your requirements.


    Do I need a licence for CCTV?


    You don’t require a licence for CCTV. However, organisations and businesses that process information will need to include details of their usage to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).


    Do I need permission to install CCTV?


    Domestic CCTV – You do not need permission to install CCTV unless installation in a listed building. Additionally, if you rent your home, you require permission from the homeowner.

    Commercial CCTV – You do not require permission. However, there are strict guidelines. A Privacy Impact Assessment will need to be conducted before installation.

    4K Definition CCTV Resolution
    The benefits of

    4K Resolution CCTV

    4K CCTV is towards the higher end of the CCTV camera range. At 2160p, double the resolution of HD, 4K can often remove the need for optical zoom. Additionally, more precise images, sharper details and greater colour range allow easier identification.

    High Definition CCTV Resolution
    The benefits of

    High Resolution CCTV

    HD cameras are today's standard in CCTV systems. At 1080p, images are much more precise than SD, helping you see more detail, like faces, text and objects. Additional HD allows the opportunity to integrate with advanced detection software, such as video analytics and facial recognition.

    Standard Definition CCTV Resolution
    The benefits of

    Standard Resolution CCTV

    Standard definition cameras offer 720 x 480 resolution; this is a long way from HD and 4K image quality. In addition, the low image resolution means identification is challenging, especially under poor light conditions or during adverse weather. However, SD could be a viable solution if you plan to install CCTV as a deterrent or are working to a tight budget.

    4K 3840 x 2160 pixels
    HD 1920 x 1080 pixels
    SD 720 x 480 pixels
