These are the essential items you will need to build a good quality CCTV security system. Often retailers concentrate on the high margin big ticket items and ignore the smaller items. We aren’t going to retire from the proceeds of this page but each item is still selected with the same attention to detail.
The hard drives we supply to fit in our CCTV DVR recorders are a good example of our level of commitment. Outwardly one hard drive is much the same as any other and they all work. We identified an industry leader, Western Digital, and looked to them for advice and technical support. Using their expertise we identified the potential weaknesses of using inferior drives in the demanding application of CCTV storage. Running 24 hours a day and constantly churning over its entire contents a normal computer hard drive might fail prematurely when installed in a DVR recorder. The WD drives we install feature low energy consumption design features which also reduce the amount of heat build up. Noise is also reduced when compared to inferior drives. Life expectancy, so often the Achilles heel of cheaper drives, is also increased. Given our customers are never going to see the hard drives we install and format it would be easy to let profit override quality. We don’t.
We offer a number of different CCTV cable options. Ready made leads come in a number of different lengths and offer a simple plug and play solution. We also offer traditional Coax plus 2, also known as shotgun cable in cut or drum lengths. As well as these conventional video transmission methods we cater for customers wanting to take advantage of Cat5 cable technology. Video baluns allow up to 4 CCTV camera outputs to be carried along a single piece of Cat5. All our Cat5 cable is external grade pure copper rather than cheaper CCA or copper clad aluminum. This not only improves signal transfer but also resists stress fracturing at terminal connections.
We offer a number of different options when it comes to powering your CCTV system ranging from simple plug in solutions to fully hard wired solutions. We also stock CCTV specific items such as screw terminal DC plugs and sockets which can save hours when compared to traditional soldered fittings during a typical CCTV install.
We are always looking out for new products which either improve the effectiveness of CCTV systems or make installation easier. Sometimes this means thinking outside the box. Our set up monitors are a good example of this. Traditional CCTV set up monitors are very expensive for what they are. They also serve only one job. We managed to track down a monitor which not only had the necessary components to allow use when adjusting the position, zoom and focus settings of CCTV cameras but which could also be used as a CCTV monitor afterwards. As if that wasn’t enough it also functions as a television which can be used in the home or mobile vehicle.
Many items within our accessory section are included in CCTV system promotions such as buy any 4 cameras and we will include a power supply free of charge.
As with all our products don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for advice by phone or email. It’s what we are here for.
