    Why do you need CCTV installed?


    CCTV installations in London and other city centres are becoming increasingly common, as is its use in homes, 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 surveillance of a building or open area and is an essential tool in protecting people, business property, and assets, with camera systems used to monitor banks, schools, bars, offices, airports, commercial properties, hospitals, shops, and many other locations.

    CCTV Network solutions for business & office environments 


    Installing CCTV cameras in your office will help deter unwanted intruders and give your employees peace of mind. Modern CCTV systems have come a long way and now feature full colour, high-resolution rendering which works almost as well at night as they do in the day.


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


    CCTV Integration security solutions for your business


    CCTV camera installations 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 camera will be activated in that location. If the 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, a CCTV camera installation can be put to good use 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, commercial CCTV 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.




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


    Wired vs Wireless CCTV Systems for Business security

    Wired CCTV systems are the most common and cheapest type of CCTV systems, 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 camera to base-station can suffer from ‘chatter’ and can be blocked by metal in structures and thick walls. ACCL’s advanced CCTV systems and networking capabilities ensure this will not happen.

    Any IP-enabled device is open to hacking whether it is wired or wireless. ACCL’s CCTV installation services always include the latest in encryption protection.

    Image quality

    Our CCTV installers recommend the installation of high-resolution cameras (with up to 30 megapixel CCDs using CMOS chipsets) based on experience. The efficiency of a camera is judged by the size and type of chip it uses. CCTV security 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 footage – 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 professional network abilities come to the fore in advising on CCTV security cameras best suited for your business.

    Extending the life of legacy systems

    Active Communication Company Ltd recognizes 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 camera systems and the migration to Internet transmission. In conjunction with changing recording devices, ACCL can help enhance the quality of your existing CCTV system, allowing it to be overhauled in a controlled timescale.

    How to Choose the Ideal CCTV Camera Type

    Ready to call a security company to handle your CCTV installation process? While CCTV installation experts can help you with choosing the ideal type of CCTV cameras, it doesn’t hurt to be familiar with some of the basic options before you make the call.


    The list below will provide you some insight into the functions CCTV cameras can handle and the options we can use to build your customised system. Depending on your budget and your needs, you can opt for one, two, or more types of security cameras. For instance, you don’t have to pay extra to have HD cameras in areas where you don’t need them.


    Let’s take a look at the surveillance cameras and systems that can offer your peace of mind and keep your premises safe from intruders. Take a look at the available CCTV Security systems.


    The most popular types of CCTV monitoring cameras are:


    Dome CCTV 

    They get their name from their dome-shaped casing around the camera. Their unobtrusive design makes them super easy to fit for any outdoor or indoor use. The dome makes it hard for intruders to tamper with the camera, so you’ll enjoy a future-proof security system.


    Dome CCTV cameras are ideal for restaurants, hotels, casinos, and others because they have 360-degree angles and can be easily added to any monitoring system.

    Bullet CCTV 

    Bullet CCTV cameras are perhaps the most widespread option. Their iconic design makes them easy to recognise and act as a deterrent for intruders.


    CCTV specialists always recommend bullet cameras where possible because they withstand rain and even extreme weather conditions very well. They may not be suitable for high-definition and high-quality photos, but they are still a great technology for outdoor use.

    C-Mount CCTV

    Want to monitor varying distances? Then C-mount CCTV cameras are a great choice, thanks to their detachable lenses that can be switched around.


    These cameras are very popular in CCTV installations in the logistics, manufacturing or the utilities industry because they can monitor stretches or road and wide premises. This is also a great technology for extreme weather conditions.



    High Definition (HD) CCTV

    Want the best quality in your images? Then we recommend you add HD cameras to your CCTV system. They have resolutions ranging from 720p to 4K.

    High-definition cameras are available in a lot of dome and bullet models. They are ideal for criminal identification.


    Infrared/Night Vision CCTV

    Want to install CCTV cameras that are useful 24/7? The night vision cameras are what you need. If you worry about night-time security, these cameras are the ideal solution.


    While the imagery may not be as clear as that obtained by HD cameras, night vision cameras are an excellent deterrent in industries like manufacturing.


    Day/Night CCTV 

    Need a CCTV system that doesn’t compromise quality depending on the time of day? Day/night CCTV cameras are designed to ensure your security 24/7. Typically, they record in both colour and black and white and the quality of the image when the lighting is ideal is very good.


    Day/night cameras are typically used when you want to install CCTV in outdoor areas, where the light is variable.


    PTZ Pan Tilt & Zoom Cameras

    Do you have a large security team that needs to closely monitor certain areas? Then PTZ cameras are the best choice, since they offer the possibility to zoom in and out to analyse certain incidents in detail.


    Not only does the optical zoom give you the possibility to focus on certain areas, but the pan/tilt function provides a 360-degree view angle. This way, your security service can always be on top of every situation, even developing ones, as they have

    the opportunity to react quickly.

    Network/IP CCTV 

    Go mobile with your monitoring by using network/IP cameras. Their feed can be accessed online, from anywhere in the world, which makes them ideal for offices where management travels a lot.


    The feed is stored on NVR (Network Video Recorders) – not to be confused with DVR(Digital video recorder), which is used for analog cameras for later access. Your archive footage can always be accessed via NVR for later use. Plus, the installation process is very easy, since there are no computer stations or co-axial cables required.

    Wireless CCTV 

    Thinking about installing CCTV on your premises, but dread the long process? We get it! Wireless cameras are often the fastest system to install because they need fewer cables. Please bear in mind that, despite their name, wireless cameras aren’t 100% wireless. They still need to be connected to the mains network to draw power. Some newer options work on batteries, but do keep in mind that this means changing the batteries quite frequently.


    Still, they are an increasingly popular option, especially in indoor environments like churches, museums, stately homes, art galleries, and others where aesthetics are very important.

    Still not sure what type of CCTV system or camera is the ideal fit for your company or your oganisation? No problem!

    Our CCTV installation service always starts with an on-premise survey. This will help us identify the most suitable security camera system for your security needs, as well as the best solution budget- and aesthetics-wise.
