Static CCTV Cameras
Static CCTV Cameras are the most recognisable CCTV security system because of their affordability and ease of use. Static CCTV cameras record a live feed within a focused area, allowing you to record the activity and protect your premises from trespass and crime, whilst you to monitor who enters and exits your property. This high-resolution live feed is transmitted and recorded onto the Digital Video Recorder (DVR) which is available for playback at a later stage.
Although these cameras hold a fixed position they can be installed with a variety of lenses allowing you to choose the exact area where you would like the cameras to focus. Our trained staff will work closely with you throughout the installation process to guarantee highly effective monitoring tailored specifically to your needs.

Static/Dome CCTV Cameras
An internet protocol camera, or IP Camera, is the newest type of digital video camera most commonly used for security surveillance, or health and safety and monitoring purposes, that can be viewed live anywhere that has an internet connection, including your mobile device. These CCTV cameras can be installed both indoors and outdoors, although they are most commonly found indoors.
The shape of the dome camera makes it almost impossible for onlookers to know which direction the lens is pointing, creating an air of uncertainty that acts as a fantastic deterrent against any potential criminal activity.
Dome security cameras are used in applications where a wide-angle view of the entire area is desired. Due to the specific design of the dome camera, they can cover a much larger area for surveillance which makes them an extremely popular choice for businesses with large properties and numerous buildings.
Please contact us for further information on our dome CCTV cameras systems and installation.
What is CCTV?
Closed-circuit television, also known as CCTV, is a network of cameras and recording equipment that are all linked together for video surveillance. The Closed Circuit comes from the fact that the network they run on is independent and can only be picked up by its receiver.
How is CCTV different to normal TV?
Unlike normal television which transmits its images publicly, CCTV transmits its images via a closed-loop, meaning that it ends up in your recording device only.
What is CCTV used for?
CCTV cameras are primarily used to view and monitor areas to ensure that they are safe and secure and can be used for both domestic and commercial properties.
Can I use CCTV offline?
You can operate CCTV cameras without the internet, and what’s great is that they can even work without electricity. An internet connection is only required when the footage needs to be accessed remotely. Although using the internet has its benefits, it is certainly not a necessity.
How Are IP Cameras Different from CCTV Cameras?
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras are a traditional analogue system of using cameras that use a DVR to record video. They’re reliable, relatively inexpensive, and easy to install. However, they don’t offer you the same versatility, high resolution, and higher security than IP cameras do.
Chose Our Security System for Maximum Security
The range of monitoring services we offer in South Wales will allow maximum security indoors or outside. Depending on the size of the premises, it is often a more budget friendly option to include a mixture of CCTV and personnel security services, and with the option to incest in day or night cameras with hidden features, the safety of the premises and those on the premises is highly increased. From the consultation to the professional installation and professional maintenance services, you will be able to collect valuable evidence, whether you operate in the Welsh capital or beyond.
What is the Suggested Number of Security Cameras Needed for the Premises?
When deciding on creating your video surveillance system, one of the key factors to take into consideration is to decide on how many areas you need covered. If the property has a large entrance area, outdoors area with a number of lobbies, parking lots, cash registers and employee only areas, you’ll need to consider a mixture of CCTVs. Whether they’ll need to be all weather resistant, have a night time vision feature, 360 views and more. Depending on how many angles you’d like the premises to be covered for is also an important factor in deciding how many cameras to get, but as guidance, the suggestion is 4-20 depending on your needs, size of the premises and of course your budget.
Why invest in CCTV for Your Business or Home?
When a security device is visible, people in your building are more aware of their behaviour and it radiates a certain feel of authority which helps prevent vandalism, threats and burglaries. As the monitoring devices we offer are highly reliable and provide valuable evidence when needed, they are a fantastic choice for monitoring office buildings, commercial properties and domestic properties. Our professional CCTV installers are highly qualified engineers, dedicated to bringing you the best solutions. With our wide range of security solutions, you can ensure that employees in your building are protected whilst customer satisfaction is at its highest.

The first step to protecting your home using a security system is an assessment. Assessment includes identification of any vulnerable areas. Vulnerable areas include entrances, perimeter of your property and any blind spots. The point of an initial assessment is to determine what security your property needs.
Large properties will benefit most from a system that includes:
- CCTV camera: placed around your home to cover areas identified in assessment.
- Motion sensors: detect the movement of any intruders triggering alarms and cameras
- Control of access: electronic access systems that use biometric scanners, key cards, key fobs or keypad codes are a great for protecting restricted areas like gates and entrances.
- Alarms: Intruder alarms will alert you or our security company to alert of the intruder.
- Remote Monitoring: Being able to view your property’s surveillance will help your peace of mind. Remote monitoring allows you to view your property in real time for anywhere using an app on your smartphone.
