The CCTV Advisory Service is able, free of charge, to advise your organisation on the purchase, installation and management of your CCTV system. As a member of the Association of Security Consultants we do not sell or install CCTV but offer independent advice to our clients.

CCTV installation and purchase can be problematic for many organisations. Issues include identifying reputable companies, achieving an understanding of the requirement, being able to compare offerings based on different solutions and equipment, how the system should be operated to provide effective security, ensuring that the system meets current legislative requirements and produces pictures of evidential quality.

Even if CCTV companies have been required to quote for the same system it can be difficult to determine if the lowest quotation is offering best value or using inferior equipment to gain a price advantage.

With the Police stating that they are unable to use 80% of the pictures they receive, and 90% of systems being illegal the moment they are switched on it is important that CCTV is designed correctly to ensure that the investment is not wasted.

If you would like us to design or upgrade your CCTV system and ensure that you obtain a competitive price by tendering the installation to three pre qualified companies please click here.

Please find below a one page summary of the help we are able to offer those seeking to install or upgrade a CCTV system. Alternatively, for those who would like to understand more about the CCTV market and why it often fails its customers, there is a brief overview of the problems faced by those purchasing systems. Also outlined are details of how we can help you ensure that your system is fit for purpose and continues to be so over the coming years.
