Commercial CCTV Cameras - Leading Brands & Manufacturers

At Safeguard we work with owner managed businesses, SMEs and enterprises companies. Covering internal and external CCTV camera installations in a range of sectors, we can work to all budgets and requirements.

Dome cameras can be seamlessly deployed in external and internal settings. When deployed internally, these CCTV cameras cover the same threats as turret cameras.

When it comes to external security, these cameras help to:

  • Spot intruders and vandals

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the different types of CCTV cameras?

    There is a range of different types of commercial CCTV cameras. Each has its own features and benefits in protecting commercial premises.

    The types of CCTV cameras deployed in commercial settings include dome, turret, PTZ, bullet, ANPR, corner, and thermal.

    This really depends on your security objectives, budgets and the areas you need to protect.

    For example, PTZ cameras are fantastic when deployed to monitor site perimeters and vast areas. Bullet cameras are best deployed to target specific, designated areas. Dome surveillance cameras are well suited to cover wide areas and thermal cameras are effective when you require advanced threat detection in low-light situations.

    The best internal CCTV cameras are dome, corner, and fisheye surveillance cameras.

    Both dome and fisheye cameras are perfect for covering wide areas and can be integrated with IR illuminators. This offers effective internal surveillance (when the lights are out) in case an intruder enters the building undetected.

    Corner cameras, AKA anti-ligature cameras are best deployed when there is a risk of suicide, and self-harm. These specialist cameras are often deployed at hospitals, mental health facilities, and prisons.

    Surveillance cameras integrated with motion sensors, and night vision capabilities offer advanced threat detection solutions for commercial premises with significant assets and operations to protect.

    This depends on a range of factors. Some CCTV camera brands are more expensive than others. This comes down to quality, durability, and technical factors. 

    Furthermore, Advanced thermal cameras integrated with IR sensors will cost more than a standard IP bullet camera.

    Lastly, The higher the resolution the more a camera will cost. There are other factors but these are the main ones.

    Yes, absolutely. We offer a free CCTV site survey and system design proposal.

    One of our experienced CCTV system estimators and solution designers will visit your site and conduct a survey. They will then provide a system design proposal based on your objectives and within your budget.

    They will also take into account cabling requirements, whether the system needs to be aligned with your current IT network infrastructure, and more.

    This depends on various factors. Essentially, it comes down to how many surveillance cameras you need to protect your site.

    If you require internal and external surveillance, you will need more devices than if you just need a CCTV camera system to monitor your office car park

    If you are looking to protect a site covering vast grounds with a large perimeter, you will require a broad mix of cameras in comparison to a small office block.

    At Safeguard, we work with a range of leading CCTV surveillance camera brands.

    For owner-managed businesses, we install Hikvision, and Hanwha (Wisnet) CCTV cameras. For SMEs we recommend Hanwha and for larger enterprise businesses we recommend installing Avigilon and Axis CCTV cameras.

    These recommendations are based on the technical capabilities of each brand’s offering, and the settings they are deployed in.

    Yes, this requires the deployment of PTZ (pan, tilt, and zoom) cameras. PTZ cameras can zoom in on a target in real-time or retrospectively.
