Our Different Types of CCTV Cameras

The ACCL team has been assisting London businesses in keeping their offices safe and secure with leading wired and wireless CCTV systems for over 25 years. We offer a wealth of expertise that ensures our clients can benefit from the latest technology available in cabling and CCTV surveillance. 

If you are the owner of a London business who wants to stay ahead of your security and regulatory compliance, we can help. We’ll assess your site and recommend and install the best wireless CCTV camera systems to meet your needs and protect your high-value assets and employees.

Wireless CCTV Cameras

Wireless CCTV Camera

Wireless CCTV cameras are one of the top choices for London businesses that are looking to keep their premises secure. These systems offer a range of benefits, starting with lower installation cost, because there are no costly video extension cables that need to be installed throughout your building before your system can operate effectively.


Wireless CCTV systems offer flexible camera mounting options, allowing you to place cameras anywhere you would like – even in locations in which standard cameras cannot be installed. These systems use the power of broadband wireless internet. This enables seamless video streaming at all times, and offer better security, as criminals cannot identify and cut the wires. 

Furthermore, it is easier to move the cameras of wireless systems if you decide that you’d like to survey your premises from a different angle. Fewer wires mean fewer hassles when it comes to relocation and scaling of your wireless CCTV network too.

Thermal Imaging Cameras

Thermal Imaging Camera

Thermal imaging cameras are a robust security option that provide functionality in low-light environments. These cameras can be used in various locations, enabling you to detect body temperature rapidly and easily to prevent the spread of viruses and pathogens like COVID-19. They can also be used to assess your building’s insulation and major sources of heat loss.

Thermal cameras can identify the exact locations of pipes, be used to conduct comprehensive energy audits, and even be used to find electrical wire connections in buildings. Thermal imaging can be used to pinpoint electrical faults such as overloaded circuits and failed motor bearings allowing you to rectify these issues before they damage your building, and to identify pest infestations. You can even use your thermal imaging camera CCTV system to pinpoint roof leaks, insulation gaps, and air leaks.


Dome CCTV in the car park

Dome CCTV cameras are named due to their dome-shaped casings which protect each camera from the elements. They offer a sleek and unobtrusive design, and are ideal for use indoors or outdoors. The dome shape makes it difficult for criminals to tamper with these cameras. This means that they provide excellent and reliable security that cannot easily be hindered, even by experienced criminals.


These cameras are best suited to hotels, casinos, restaurants, and similar premises because they cover 360-degree angles and large areas like public entryways, and can easily be integrated with existing monitoring systems. It is important to note, however, that they do offer limited range, and require periodic cleaning to keep them functioning optimally. Our team can advise you on whether or not dome CCTV cameras will meet your business’s needs – and if not, on which solutions will better serve you instead.

Bullet CCTV

These types of CCTV cameras are widely used and popular among businesses of all types, as well as offices, car parks and hotels. They have an easily recognisable shape and design which intruders will recognise instantly, providing an additional layer of deterrence for criminals before the camera even has a chance to capture any footage. Their flexible design allows them to be moved out of position, although this does make them more vulnerable to vandalism. Thus, these cameras require strategic placements and installation for best results.


CCTV installation specialists recommend bullet cameras wherever possible because they hold up well against rain, storms, and more extreme weather conditions. They are not ideal for businesses that need high quality, HD photos and footage, but are still a fantastic option for outdoor security systems. Long range versions of these cameras are also available to suit your specific needs.

PTZ Pan Tilt and Zoom Cameras

If you have a large security team tasked with carefully monitoring specific areas, PTZ cameras are an ideal choice as they give you the ability to zoom in and out to analyse areas and incidents in greater detail. This flexible optical zoom allows you to focus on specific areas, while the pan and tilt functions provide 360-degree views of your premises. This functionality will give your security team all the tools they need to stay one step ahead of potential intruders and security threats.


PTZ cameras can pan, tilt, and zoom according to your needs but do require an operator. Best suited to outdoor use over wide areas, these cameras are large and heavier than many other options as this allows them to provide high-quality images at a distance. It’s important to note that they can miss incidents if moved and are more prone to failure than over types of CCTV cameras.

Day/Night CCTV

If you need a CCTV system that provides quality footage at all times of the day, a day/night system might be ideal for your premises. These CCTV cameras provide 24/7 security, and record in both black and white and colour, depending on your needs. The image quality produced in ideal lighting conditions is excellent.


These cameras are often used for businesses that wish to install CCTV in outdoor areas with variable light, such as smoking areas, car parks, sidewalks, and entrances. We recommend installing a light source near the day/night cameras of your choice to ensure that your night-time footage is of as high a quality as possible.

Network/IP CCTV

Network CCTV

One of the newest and most exciting types of CCTV cameras on the market today is the network or IP CCTV camera system. This allows you to go mobile with your monitoring and security by using cameras connected to your network. You can access these cameras’ feeds online from anywhere you are, allowing you to travel freely while knowing that you can survey your premises whenever you feel the need to do so.

The feed will be stored on network video recorders, enabling you to access it later if needed. The installation process for these cameras is very simple, as there are no co-axial cables or computer stations required. IP cameras are best used indoors to survey business premises, offices, network cabinets, computer rooms, and other essential assets.

Our expert CCTV installers offer comprehensive installation packages for your London business, ranging from single cameras monitoring one point of entry to complete systems that monitor all access points and even multiple buildings and locations. We can also integrate any of our CCTV systems with access control and automatic number plate recognition systems at your request!
