CIA combines industry-leading expertise and CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) technology to provide commercial and residential video surveillance solutionsThis page will provide the knowledge you need to make the right choices in CCTV security. 

Video Surveillance (CCTV) 

CCTV is the ideal system to protect your property whether that’s at home or on a commercial premise. Not only does it act as a visual deterrent, but video or digital recording provides an invaluable means to record crime, violence or anti-social behaviour. 

It can also serve as a valuable business management tool offering staff protection, supporting Health & Safety initiatives, aiding investigations, and monitoring day-to-day operations. Shop owners can analyse customer traffic and identify busy periods, while arable farmers can use CCTV to monitor livestock. 

Most commercial and residential CCTV systems comprise more than one camera, but you don’t need a monitor and recorder for each camera; several cameras can share one monitor and footage can even be accessed on your mobile phone with some high-quality systems. 

The latest technology also enables off-site recording via the internet which is saved ‘to the cloud’ – meaning it is stored on computers in data centres away from your site. This offers another layer of protection if your building is damaged as a result of fire, for example.
