What is CCTV?
CCTV stands for ‘closed circuit television’ and is used to monitor and record activity in and around a premises. The ‘closed circuit’ element of its name means that the images and recordings aren’t transmitted publicly, and are only available for the security company and the business itself to access.
There are many types of CCTV, and the one you choose will depend on your requirements: fixed or with the ability to move and track a target, for external or internal use, vandal resistant or in covert models. IP CCTV systems installed in Wakefield have internet connectivity - they can be monitored via any compatible device with an internet connection from anywhere in the world.
All of 4 Site Security Systems’ IP CCTV systems store recordings on a hard drive, which can be archived to CD, DVD, or USB, as well as viewed via a secure global internet connection.
Why install IP CCTV?
CCTV is the most efficient way of monitoring a premises without an extensive physical personnel presence. It ensures that employees are kept safe, as well as monitoring suspicious activity and allowing professionals to step in and intervene to prevent theft or damage. It can be used in a court of law as evidence of crime or abuse.
Why is CCTV maintenance so important?
CCTV maintenance in Wakefield should be undertaken regularly by a certified professional, who perform rigorous testing on the system, replace essential parts, and repair any faults. CCTV maintenance is of utmost importance, because there may be problems with your system that aren’t immediately apparent and that you aren’t aware of: what’s the point in installing a state of the art security system only to have it fail at a crucial moment?
