CCTV 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.
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.
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.
