  1. New CCTV camera systems to be deployed at Wigan borough fly-tipping hotspots

    Comments Off on New CCTV camera systems to be deployed at Wigan borough fly-tipping hotspots

    A new CCTV camera system will be deployed at Wigan borough fly-tipping hotspots as part of a plan to crack down on fly-tippers, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

    The cameras can tilt and pan wider areas with footage monitored by staff in the council’s central watch CCTV room. The council estimates that more than £4m is spent taking litter off streets, parks, and greenspaces every year – and this includes £700,000 on fly-tipping alone.

    Coun Paul Prescott, the council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “There is absolutely no excuse for fly-tipping, it is a nuisance to our communities and costs money to clear away.

    “That is why we will take any steps necessary to find and prosecute offenders.

    “We are determined to crack down on the problem and installing CCTV at fly-tipping hotspots will hopefully act as a further deterrent and successful prosecutions should people choose to flout the law.”

    CCTV Surveillance – Top UK Supplier and Installation Contractor of Digital CCTV Camera Systems

    One of the key elements enabling Stoke-on-Trent City Council to reduce security costs was remote monitoring.

    At CCTV Surveillance, we can offer you this service. We have seen it save countless customers money just like the council due to less staff being needed on patrol and lower insurance costs.

    The CCTV Surveillance monitoring center is staffed 24/7 all year round by highly trained operators, all of whom share a passion for security. They can take immediate action on the video footage that they are alerted to, either by using the intercom link to warn away offenders or calling the police and specified keyholders.

    Our top-range systems use the latest digital technology to provide real-time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection. For further security and information gathering we can provide you with facial recognition CCTV software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition, and even facial recognition access control systems if required.

    Extra Security with CCTV Camera Systems

    We provide several other security services as well as remote monitoring, such as our System Takeover, where we can take on the time and responsibility of running and maintaining your existing security system for you. All of our CCTV camera systems can also integrate with our access control systems. For example, this could allow the automatic opening or barring of doors if a certain person is picked up on the cameras.

    If you are worried about the security of your premises, we can perform an in-depth assessment with a full spectrum penetration test that replicates real-life threats – everything from social engineering to lock picking and getting past alarms. We can also provide a smaller physical penetration-only test.

  2. Public CCTV system in Diss set for expansion

    Comments Off on Public CCTV system in Diss set for expansion

    The public CCTV system in Diss, Norfolk, is set to expand in order to tackle the ongoing phenomenon of anti-social behaviour close to one of the town’s main public amenities, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

    Diss Town Council voted during a full council meeting held last month to contribute the funding for the installation of a new CCTV camera overlooking Rectory Meadow, adding to the initial set of ten cameras currently up and running through Diss town center.

    At the meeting, some councilors determined Rectory Meadow was an area that “should be enjoyed by all”, with the caveat that if the camera proved ineffective, an alternative location would be considered.

    This will add to the cameras now in place at Chapel Street, Mere Street, Market Hill, Market Place, Park Road, St Nicholas Street, and select car parks in Diss, along with an accompanying free Wi-Fi network.

    The footage of the public CCTV system is being monitored by a team of volunteers made of representatives from the town council and local businesses.

  3. A Beginner’s Guide to CCTV Systems

    Comments Off on A Beginner’s Guide to CCTV Systems

    If you are looking to secure your home or business, installing a CCTV system is a smart choice. CCTV systems not only provide surveillance and deterrence against criminal activity but can also help you monitor your property remotely and collect evidence if an incident occurs. A guide to CCTV systems helps in making the best decision.

    In this guide, we will explain the basics of CCTV systems and what you need to know before installing one.

    What is a CCTV System?

    A CCTV system consists of cameras, recorders, software, and a monitor or viewing device. The cameras capture video footage of a specific area and send it to the recorder, which stores the footage for future review. The monitor or viewing device allows you to see the live or recorded footage.

    Types of CCTV Systems

    There are different types of CCTV systems available, depending on your needs and budget. Some of the most common types are:

    1. Analog CCTV: uses a coaxial cable to transmit the video signal from the camera to the recorder. Analog CCTV cameras are affordable but have lower resolution and image quality compared to digital systems.
    2. Digital CCTV: uses an IP (Internet Protocol) network to transmit the video signal, which allows for higher resolution and image quality. Digital CCTV cameras are more expensive but provide better performance and flexibility.
    3. Wireless CCTV: uses a wireless signal to transmit the video signal from the camera to the recorder. Wireless CCTV cameras are easy to install and move around but may be prone to interference and have limited range.
    4. Hybrid CCTV: combines analog and digital cameras in the same system, which allows you to upgrade your existing analog system with digital cameras and recorders gradually.

    Components of a CCTV System

    To set up a CCTV system, you will need the following components:

    • Cameras: choose the type and number of cameras based on your surveillance needs and the areas you want to monitor. Consider factors such as resolution, field of view, night vision, and weather resistance.
    • Recorders: choose the type and capacity of the recorder based on the number of cameras and the duration of the footage you want to store. Consider factors such as hard drive space, frame rate, compression, and remote access.
    • Cables or wireless transmitters: choose the type and length of the cables or wireless transmitters based on the distance between the cameras and the recorder. Consider factors such as signal strength, interference, and security.
    • Monitor or viewing device: choose the type and size of the monitor or viewing device based on your preferences and budget. Consider factors such as resolution, color accuracy, and connectivity.

    Installation and Maintenance guide for CCTV systems

    Installing a CCTV system requires some technical knowledge and skills, so it is recommended to hire a professional installer. A professional installer can help you choose the right components, install them properly, and configure the system for optimal performance. They can also provide training and support for using the system and troubleshooting any issues.

    To maintain your CCTV system, you should perform regular checks and updates, such as:

    • Cleaning the cameras and lenses to remove dust, dirt, and smudges that can affect the image quality.
    • Checking the cables and connections to ensure they are secure and not damaged.
    • Updating the software and firmware of the cameras and recorders to fix bugs and add new features.
    • Testing the system regularly to ensure it is working properly and recording the footage you need.

    A CCTV system is a valuable investment for enhancing the security and safety of your home or business. By understanding the basics of CCTV systems and choosing the right components and installation, you can enjoy the benefits of surveillance and peace of mind.
