|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.
|Comments from previous clients:
The service provided by CCTV Advisory Service was excellent, I would definitely recommend it, our expectations were fully reached.
The Service is good and impartial, but provides clients with a quality assurance that the installation companies are of the correct calibre and that they perform to British Standards.
Every detail is taken care off. The college has been provided with information on complying with the law in relation to CCTV, meetings at our convenience, demonstrations as to the quality provided by different types of camera, recommendations to ensure maximum coverage. I would highly recommend the CCTV Advisory Service, I cannot fault the service I have received. The college has saved both time and money.
I thought that I should contact you to thank you for the consultancy advice provided for our new CCTV system. Your expert knowledge was invaluable when assessing the needs of the school and the types of cameras available to us. Also the company recommended to us are extremely professional and completed the installation quickly and efficiently.
Thank you Robyn for the expert advice you have given Guinness on CCTV. Not only have you procured the very best systems for us, you have operated within our budgets, specified appropriate systems to the problem and ensured contractor installations are as per the specification. Achieving compliance with relevant legislation is important, along with facial recognition of alleged perpetrators or incidents. All of which you have achieved for us. The ongoing maintenance is equally as important and the CCTV Advisory have really helped Guinness maintain systems to achieve exceptional quality images.
