CCTV cameras

Experts in London offering closed-circuit television camera system installs.

Security camera in London and other city centres are becoming increasingly common, as is its use in homes and commercial property, to increase security and reduce the risk of burglary.


CCTV systems use video cameras to transmit a signal to a previously specified monitor or set of monitors. It’s most commonly used for real-time video surveillance of a building or open area and is an essential tool in protecting people, property and assets, with security cameras used to monitor banks, bars, offices, airports, hospitals, shops, offices, homes and many other locations.

Modern systems have come a long way and now feature full colour, high-resolution rendering which work almost as well at night as they do in the day, through the use of night vision, meaning you can make use of your home cctv system or business system at any time of the day.


CCTV is an area where our company particularly excels as they can be integrated with all our security systems and can be linked to remote monitoring stations – even overseas if you require. These days, it does not even need to be hardwired, wireless CCTV is proving increasingly popular. Not only can it work over Wi-Fi, it can be effective over a 4G Mobile Network. ACCL are also experts at connectivity via laser or microwave over relatively short distances.


CCTV cameras in your household or business have a variety of uses. In the field of Internal and External Access Control it can be deployed so that if a door is unlocked, a security camera will be activated in that location. If the video surveillance camera is already active, it can be set to run at a higher frame rate and quality of resolution. Both working room lights and security lighting can be turned on.


Should there be a perceived emergency situation, CCTV can be put to good use in your home or commercial property to verify what is happening and advise of the extent of an actual fire or intrusion for example.


When positioned at the perimeter of a site, these systems can monitor walls and fences and other intruder hotspots. One of the best ways to get a return on investment is to use CCTV to grant entry via Pedestrian Gates or via Vehicular Gates, Barrier and Bollards. It can be linked to all Access Control Mechanisms such as card readers and can also incorporate Facial Recognition to provide automatic entry or an additional layer of verification.



There is a vast range of CCTV system hardware from the simple camera on an intercom, through to internal multi-direction dome cameras through to external models that can zoom in and out over long distances and operate in low light conditions. Our installers are familiar with all the major security camera and systems suppliers and will design and implement a surveillance solution that suits your current needs and can grow to meet your future needs. If you want a fully integrated, computer controlled video surveillance system with multiple facets or a simple intercom, we will advise you accordingly.


Wired vs Wireless Systems

Wired CCTV systems are the most common and cheapest type of camera, where a wire plugs directly or indirectly from the camera to the monitor. The downside is that not being wireless the wires, including extension cables and connectors, are easier to locate and disable.


Wireless CCTV systems are more “the norm”, these days as they use the power of the Internet to transmit images back to a central resource and for smaller or domestic installations can be linked to an App and thus viewed over a mobile phone.


The wireless aspect from security camera to base-station can suffer from ‘chatter’ and can be blocked by metal in structures and thick walls. ACCL’s advanced video surveillance  systems and networking capabilities ensure this will not happen and your property will be protected.

Any IP-enabled device is open to hacking whether it is wired or wireless. ACCL’s surveillance solutions all include the latest in encryption protection.

Image quality

Our CCTV installers in London recommend the use of high-resolution security cameras (with up to 30 megapixel CCDs using CMOS chipsets) for protecting your property. The efficiency of a camera is judged by the size and type of chip it uses. Cameras with smaller chips tend to be able to pick up less light, and therefore produce lower quality images. The light sensitively is measured in Lux, which can range from 130,000 to 0.001 – the lower the Lux the better the camera will record . High-quality images – sufficiently clear for someone to be identified – are needed if CCTV footage is to be used as evidence in court. For the best detail, high resolution is required. High resolution means large files and slower transmission to an end storage facility. ACCL’s network abilities come to the fore in advising on such aspects.

Extending the life of legacy systems

Active Communication Company Ltd recognise that it is not always possible to fund an entire replacement of CCTV hardware and infrastructure. We are able to advise on the latest encoding software that will allow the upgrading of analogue cameras and the migration to Internet transmission. In conjunction with changing recording devices, ACCL can help enhance the quality of your existing system, allowing it to be overhauled in a controlled timescale.

Video Analytics software

Advanced, computer controlled Video Analytics software can be programmed to identify moving objects, and different types of moving object, so they can distinguish a moving person from a car.


Alarms can be set for when specific events occur, for example if a person approaches a secure area, and image processing software can allow individuals to be identified.


CCTV forms the heart of an integrated security system, supporting verification of intruder and fire alarm activations and allowing emergency response to be prioritised.

As the client I can only say thanks and its an amazing piece of work by all involved. Believe me that the work to coordinate this work around other issues was challenging but Wayne and ACCL were great.

TUI / Scott Ronan

I have had the pleasure of asking Wayne and team for advice and guidance over a number of years, and have always felt assured that all advice I have received was totally unbiased and 100% accurate.

Ntegra Ltd / Grant Ward, Test Manager

The Engineers were helpful and patient. They did anything and everything that was asked of them. Thanks for a very good first job.

Leagas Delaney / Alfred Place, London

The Engineers were punctual and courteous whilst on site. They worked professionally, always being aware of the needs of the other tradesman who were also working on this project. They were sympathetic to the needs of the school and we are very satisfied with the overall installation.

Another professional installation by ACCL, on time and in budget!

Bank of New York / Alan Hawley, President of IT Infrastructure

All the people involved were extremely helpful at all times. All performed equally well in a fast-track project and responded quickly to any changes in requirements.
