Why a CCTV system is becoming a must-have

CCTV systems have significantly reduced crime and anti-social behaviour by providing 24-hour surveillance of vulnerable areas, with digital recording of events or incidents being available to help the police trace goods or criminals.

A high-quality CCTV system provided by us will give excellent quality pictures in daylight and darkness, with ease and flexibility of use. Our systems will also provide good quality images from its recorders for evidence or analysis of an event should it be required.

Choosing the right CCTV system

As an independent installer, we're free to recommend the solution that best suits your requirements. We'll work with you to plan camera positions and determine whether you need anything else, such as remote access, 4K video quality, night vision and more.

When our CCTV installer visits, tell them what's important to you, and they'll specify a system that achieves your objectives. Our quotes are free, so you get professional help designing a CCTV system without spending a penny.

What type of system do you require?

IR (infrared)/night-vision CCTV systems

With a lot of crime happening under cover of darkness, IR (infrared)/ Night-Vision CCTV is essential. IR cameras help you see in the dark when you can't. They can see in low and no light (0 Lux). Infrared cameras have IR LEDs positioned around the lens's outer edges, giving the camera its "Night Vision".Infrared

Cameras can capture acceptable video in total darkness and even better quality video in low light. Even a tiny amount of ambient light dramatically helps the overall night vision capability of IR cameras. This can be in the form of nearby street lighting or motion sensor lights. This should, however, be discussed during a site survey before installation.

High-quality HD Resolution

Choosing the right quality camera can be a minefield for anyone unsure about CCTV equipment. However, we provide the best quality cameras at the best possible price. T2k is happy to visit you on-site to discuss your requirements.

Here are a few options to consider when choosing your new CCTV system:

  • Price.
  • Distance to the area you're looking to record.
  • Are you using it as a deterrent or full facial recognition?
  • How many hours are you looking to record before content is over-written?

IP or Analogue?

IP or Digital (also referred to as Analogue CCTV) - What's the difference, and what's best for me? It's a question that we get asked a lot. Unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to give you a definitive answer without viewing your premises first - however, here are a few things you should know:

  • IP works over your internet lines, allowing it to become a more flexible system.
  • Analogue is generally cheaper up-front costs, although it may be more cost-effective for some installations to run IP CCTV cameras.
  • IP Cameras tend to have a lot more features.
  • IP Cameras tend to have a higher resolution.
  • Remote access: You can remotely watch your CCTV from a smartphone, PC, or tablet with an IP system

Dome, Bullet or PTZ?

There's a wide range of CCTV camera styles; the main three categories are Dome, Bullet and PTZ.

Dome cameras are generally mounted on a ceiling or side wall for areas such as alleyways. These can be found in vandal-proof variations, and the dome protects the lenses.

Bullet CCTV cameras are your traditional style camera. They're fixed cameras and can be pole-mounted, wall-mounted, and ceiling-mounted. They're a versatile camera but can sometimes be prone to vandalism unless positioned up high.

PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras come in different variations; however, their primary function is that the lens and the camera's direction can be moved, focused and monitored from another device such as a computer, monitoring station or mobile device.
