24-7 Fire & Security’s CCTV and surveillance solutions allow you to manage and supervise your business from anywhere in the world.
CCTV (Close Circuit Television) systems consist of either analogue or IP cameras. They capture images in real time. These are stored on a recording device, normally for 30 days depending on the client’s needs.
IP and Analogue both have pros and cons. 24-7 Fire & Security will advise on the best system subject to a site’s security requirements.
Types of CCTV Systems
Traditional analogue cameras are relatively easy to install and run.
They send recordings to a DVR which converts the analogue feed to digital files.
Picture quality and resolution are always improving thanks to the arrival of high definition (HD) systems.
Image quality is superior to that of analogues and resolutions and aspect ratios can be customised to customer needs.
These cameras can compress and store video and provide analytics.
How the CCTV System Works
Cameras capture images within their field of vision. The field will vary depending on the type of camera and lens used. These are encoded, processed and transferred to a recording device. Video and audio options are available.
A Network Video Recorder (NVR) records the images and sound in digital format. This is stored on a hard drive, the size of which will depend on the number of cameras and the amount of footage.
There are multiple ways to view footage, including on a monitor connected via a HDMI cable, on a PC connected to the internet, using viewing software, or via mobile devices with 4G connection via an app.
24-7 Fire & Security’s CCTV systems can be integrated with access control and intruder alarm systems.
