We offer specification and design services aim to save you money, whether a new site or an upgrade of an existing provision, we will evaluate your existing system and support infrastructure to meet your project requirements and budget. We can provide services for the full life cycle; design, specification, tender production and evaluation, acceptance testing and handover to minimise costs and maximise risk mitigation.
We offer modern CCTV technologies which can be high-resolution colour or low light cameras, providing the CCTV administrator with the ability to zoom, track and record incidents as they occur.
We deploy CCTV for a variety of purposes, including:
- Maintaining perimeter and internal security.
- Monitoring traffic flow.
- Obtaining an image of human activity.
The UK is recognised as a leading user of CCTV and the public are used to seeing CCTV cameras on virtually every high street. Such systems continue to enjoy favourable public support but they also involve intrusion into the lives of ordinary people as they go about their day to day business and can raise wider privacy concerns.
Images of people are covered by the Data Protection Act, and so is information about people which is derived from images – for example, vehicle registration numbers. Most uses of CCTV by organisations or businesses will be covered by the Act, regardless of the number of cameras or how sophisticated the equipment is.
