Cctv installations

CCTV

Direct Systems can supply and install CCTV systems for security at your home or business throughout the Midlands. After a site survey, we can ensure the system you get is ideal for whatever commercial or domestic applications you have in mind.

If you are looking for a home cctv system, we can install day/night bullet type cameras or dome cameras that provide good pictures even in low light. These systems are ideal as they act as a visible deterrent in addition to help identifying a determined intruder.
We also provide a wide selection of covert cctv cameras which are perfect for more unobtrusive uses. Despite their small size they are able to record quality pictures.

For high security sites we can provide fully functional cctv domes, ideal for internal and external use. These cctv cameras are ideal for any premises with on site security guards or remotely connected to a 24hr monitoring station.

IP Cameras

If you are a business with a IT network installed you could take advantage of IP cctv cameras. They work by turning images and audio into data then transmitting this data over a network or Internet connection. The ultimate benefit of this over analogue CCTV systems is greater flexibility, better performance and easier installation.

Whilst IP cctv has been available for around 10 years, it is only in the last few years that the technology has matured, leading to the developments in Megapixel IP. Read below for a summary on the benefits of using IP based systems over traditional analogue systems.

Cctv Recording

A dvr is a digital recorder, replacing the old video recorder.The dvr has a hard drive which it records the images to. So no more changing tapes everyday.The dvr can include a CD writer for copying images to a disc from the hard drive for evidence. Also there is a LAN connection for IT integration or offsite monitoring.

Many local authorities require that certain types of business premises, especially those that open late into the evening, have an operating camera system with digital recording facility as either a term of their licensing agreement or by law. Pubs, clubs, restaurants and similar businesses are finding that they are being required to fulfil more and more different requirements and the presence of a working CCTV system is an ever increasing license rule for these types of premises.
