CCTV – helping to prevent crime for businesses and homeowners across Hampshire
As experienced CCTV installation experts, Safeguard Systems can design and install a robust solution to match all requirements and objectives.
Here is an overview of the CCTV systems we design and install.
CCTV installation – HD & IP CCTV systems
We can design and implement a security camera system, providing 360 coverage for your business premises or property.
Using state of the art, HD and IP technology, we can upgrade an existing, out of date system or design and install one from new.
CCTV should act as a deterrent to crime and as a means to catch criminals. Therefore it’s imperative your CCTV systems are maintained regularly and in full working order.
Remote CCTV monitoring
Otherwise known as CCTV monitoring or remotely monitored CCTV, these security camera systems provide businesses and high-end property owners with a range of benefits.
In fact, we recently published an article on the benefits of monitored CCTV systems.
With monitored CCTV, a dedicated security professional views the footage offsite, 24/7. This helps to:
- Ease the pressure on stretched in house security teams
- Reduce the cost of expensive security guards patrolling the site, and potentially missing threats
- Catch more criminals in the act
Security and intruder alarms – integrated with CCTV
Security alarms are often considered the backbone of a business’s security.
Depending on the IT infrastructure in place, the team at Safeguard Systems can install either wired or wireless alarm systems.
Additionally, where the threat of crime is high, a fully monitored alarm system is a recommended option.
When integrated with a CCTV system, security alarms become even more powerful in managing and deterring the threat of crime.
When an alarm is triggered, the security cameras can pan and tilt to the relevant area to gain valuable footage of the perpetrator.
