The CCTV Advisory Service is a Web based information company dedicated to disseminating general information concerning Closed-circuit television (CCTV) and linking customers to quality organisations who can meet their specific requirements.
Realising that the average person, when they begin to look into CCTV, has little way of knowing where to find expert advice at reasonable cost, we have set up this web site to bring together some of the top people and organisations working in this field.
The companies and individuals found on this web site are those who do not just talk about excellence, but both believe in it, and make sure that it runs through every fibre of their organisations and dealings with customers. Companies appearing on our pages do not pay for space but appear by invitation only. They are companies we have chosen for the quality of their products, level of customer service and because they offer value for money.
Free Advice and Design
We are now able to offer free services including site surveys, drawing up plans, budget costings and system design to those who are seriously considering having a CCTV system installed by a professional installation company. These services are offered in conjunction with a small group of carefully selected CCTV installation companies.
Although these services are only available in Great Britain, in some instances we may be able to put overseas enquirers in contact with experienced CCTV installers in their own country.
Why Is a CCTV Web Site Necessary?
The importance of having a professionally designed specification can be seen from the fact that when the police seek to use CCTV evidence in court it is found to be inadmissible in at least 70% of cases. While it is true that almost anyone can look at a location and suggest a number of Cameras, only those who have experience in this field, through an understanding of the principles of optical science, will generally be able to recommend a Camera that will give the customer a picture with the best definition or coverage. Often it is also possible to give clients "added value" by locating Cameras, and utilising lenses which are able, not only to view the area of concern, but also give peripheral vision of other points of interest.
A very simple example of the above is that one company may provide a view of everyone entering through a door while another may also incorporate an overview of the room the person is entering without any increase in cost or equipment. In many cases, careful questioning reveals that a picture of people leaving rather than entering the area may, in fact, provide much more valuable evidence in the event of a crime.

It is always best to contact us via E-mail through our reply page. This enables us to make sure that the person or company with the most suitable expertise is put in touch with you.
As statistics point to major reductions in the amount of crime being committed where there are cameras installed you will begin to appreciate why CCTV is seen by many as the best system for deterrent and detection.
We are sure that you would wish to avoid having to catch those who are perpetrating crime against your organisation. Generally, once a Camera system is installed, it will only be fools who attempt to perpetrate offences within its field of view. These are often caught but for the majority it will provide a very high level of deterrence.
