Top 5 Security Benefits of A CCTV System
Discussed by Elire Fire & Security Experts
There are now over 5 million CCTV camera systems in the UK and more and more people and businesses are having professional systems fitted to protect their homes and businesses. A well planned CCTV security system provides you with peace of mind that your home or business property whether it is lived in, worked in or vacant is protected.
A CCTV system will deter thieves and crime and if anything does happen you will have the footage captured to understand what happened, when with video and pictures as evidence. Research has shown that CCTV is the number one deterrent by thieves when planning a job or in an ad hoc crime situation.
Elite Fire & Security are industry experts and work in Bristol, Bath, the South West and London. They have industry-wide knowledge and are up to date with all the latest systems and advances in all types of security. We will assess your needs and combine different systems to ensure your security system is bespoke to you and your property or site.
What Are The Main CCTV System Benefits?
CCTV systems can be designed around your property risks rather than a one size fits all approach. CCTV cameras can be fitted both inside and outside and can include light and motion detector sensors. Camera directions can be changed when needed depending on your requirements, all of which gives you optimum security for your property or site. A professionally fitted CCTV system can be added to if there are other areas you would like to cover later down the line. Video footage can be watched in real-time or viewed historical depending on your needs, and all of these reasons make it a highly flexible security system for your home or business.
24/7 Surveillance & Protection
When a professional CCTV system is installed you will have round the clock, 24/7, 365 days a year protection. You don’t need to pay someone to monitor your cameras if you don’t need to as the surveillance footage can be viewed remotely in real-time or historically. A good and well designed CCTV system means you don’t need manual cover through the night or at weekends which would cost you a huge amount, as the cameras do the surveillance for you. Certain types of cameras can be motion-activated, alerting you or a team member that someone could be entering your property which you can then check remotely before taking any action.
Quality Images & Footage
CCTV cameras and systems have moved on significantly since they were first introduced. The quality of images is very much dependent on the system you choose but can now be HD 4G if that is that is the camera system you decide on. Improved quality of footage means it is much easier to identify someone and for it to then be used as evidence if it is needed. The quality of images also means you will get clear imagery whether looking at the footage on a desktop or app on a phone or tablet. The clear imagery enables you to zoom in without losing the quality of the footage, again essential if it is to be used as identification and evidence.
Fully Integrated Security
Advanced and professional CCTV which has been designed around your property site and its security risks mean it is a highly effective system compared to other options. Dark areas or entry points out of general view won’t be missed for unwanted criminal activity to happen. Elite are experts in ensuring your property or sites security risks are identified and always covered. We will assess your property and identify the security risks they think should be covered as part of your CCTV system.

CCTV can be used as a stand-alone system or it can be integrated with other security systems to give you the best and optimum level of safety. They can be used in combination with gates and barriers pin code access doors and much more. Elite Fire & Security will advise you of the best options for you and your business and will design a fully integrated system around your needs.
