CCTV Buying Guide


Are you a bit confused by the world of CCTV and finding it difficult to decide what you need to create a good CCTV system? You are not alone, there is a lot of conflicting information out there and retailers have a nasty habit of publishing claims which are a long way from truth making it all the more difficult. We are here to help you understand how CCTV works, what everything does and what you need to put together the best CCTV system possible.  There are 2 main elements, Individual CCTV cameras which capture images and the DVR or Digital Video Recorder which processes information from the cameras and stores footage.

We have divided our buying guide into 3 sections which cover the cameras, the DVR and there is a guide to HD CCTV which is currently a hot topic.  People looking to buy a new CCTV system or upgrade their existing system are increasingly fitting HD 1080P as this is now a credible and affordable option. In each guide we explain in more detail what each element does and look at things to consider when comparing different products. We help you avoid common mistakes which result in poor quality images. CCTV isn't complicated and it's easy to create a system which captures good quality, high definition images when you know what you're doing. We sell everything you need and deliver using a next day courier service.

Whilst there is loads of information on the website we are always happy to give free advice over the phone or by email if you need help with a specific project.
