Commercial CCTV installation: Project background

Upon reviewing the existing commercial CCTV system in place, our client knew it was very basic and needed upgrading.

Their current CCTV surveillance cameras only provided low-resolution video streams which made identifying thieves and intruders virtually impossible.

What was the impact on their business?

Our customer had several vehicles stolen and the old CCTV surveillance cameras did not provide the footage quality required to identify the perpetrator(s).

The client needed a CCTV system that not only provided full HD video quality but would also notify the staff out of hours if a person entered the car park of the site.

The recommended commercial CCTV system: IP (PoE) security cameras , PIR detectors and monitoring

After a meeting with the office manager and conducting a CCTV systems assessment, we identified two key concerns.

The current system offered poor image quality, which made catching thieves difficult. Furthermore, there were areas that the current CCTV surveillance cameras didn’t cover.

Based on these findings a new CCTV system needed to be designed and installed.

In addition to upgrading the cameras to full HD capabilities, the customer desired a system that would notify them of potential intruders and thieves. If a person enters the car park a 7 second video clip would be sent to the staff’s smart devices (phones, tablets).

The new CCTV system was integrated with external Passive Infra-Red (PIR) detectors. When the PIR detector picks up movement the system sends a snapshot & video clip of the relevant camera to staff.

Business CCTV installation project: The outcome

The customers’ fleet of vehicles is protected from theft. The site is secure, and protected from intruders, and trespassers.  They have peace of mind and the ability to catch and deter potential criminals.

The business owner now has the confidence they have a security system in place that is fit for purpose and meets all security objectives.
