Why Choose Professional Commercial CCTV Installations?

The CCTV sector has transformed over the last decade. 15 years ago, commercial CCTV installations were something of a hit and miss affair. Images were often grainy, and even if a crime was caught on screen the quality was rarely good enough to present as evidence in a court of law.

Now, CCTV offers a completely different experience for users. Innovative security cameras are designed to adapt to their environment. They offer motion detection and night vision, provide high-definition recordings, and can incorporate facial recognition. They also require professional installation for effective results.

CCTV Installations Personalised to Your Business

Commercial CCTV installers ensure that your system will:

  1. Deter opportunist intruders from attempting to break into your premises.
  2. Identify intruders effectively by catching them on camera.
  3. Minimise insider crime, harassment, and bullying.

In order to achieve all 3, your CCTV system will need to be tailored to the specific environmental conditions, external and internal, offered by your premises. For this reason, 1st Choice security engineers always carry out a detailed security assessment prior to quoting on a CCTV installation. This allows us to make bespoke recommendations for your business.

Aligning Your CCTV to Your Company IT

An effective CCTV system is one that has been fully integrated into the broader technical infrastructure that’s already in place. Our engineers know where your existing cabling is and will install the new cabling to ensure complete coverage of your premises.

It’s rare now that premises are fully occupied all the time. We can align the software for your CCTV cameras with the business WiFi. This means that, in the event of a power cut, your CCTV system has a backup. It also facilitates remote access to your CCTV footage, no matter whether you’re working from home or abroad.

CCTV and Compliance

Professional commercial CCTV camera installers will also provide peace of mind that your installation is compliant with all relevant regulations. There are 3 areas of legislation that businesses need to be aware of:

To achieve compliance, businesses employing the use of CCTV cameras on their premises must:

    • Display clear signage showing that CCTV is in use.
    • Limit the storage of images.
    • Share images with the police if requested.
    • If requested, be able to provide recorded images of individuals, within 1 calendar month.
    • Pay the ICO an Annual Data Protection Fee. This costs £40 or £60 PA for most smaller or medium-sized businesses and organisations, including charities.
