FAQ - CCTV & Access Control

Installing a CCTV system is a valuable investment as it serves as one of the most effective deterrents against criminal activities. Even if a crime occurs, having video footage can provide crucial evidence for prosecution. Additionally, CCTV systems offer practical uses such as monitoring the safety of children, elderly persons, or pets remotely.

CCTV systems are essential for businesses not only to deter theft but also to enhance control over products, reduce security costs by eliminating the need for patrols, and prevent internal theft by employees. They also provide automatic evidence for Work Cover claims in case of injuries.

Digital IP CCTV cameras offer higher image quality, require fewer cables (typically using CAT6 for connection to an NVR), support Power Over Ethernet (PoE), and allow remote access via computers, smartphones, or tablets. Analog CCTV systems, while cheaper, require separate power sources for each camera, offer lower image quality, and lack remote accessibility.

While wireless CCTV systems are easy to install, they can be prone to disconnection from Wi-Fi networks and require regular battery changes or power supply maintenance. Wired CCTV systems offer superior reliability and performance.

Outdoor CCTV cameras installed by us come with IP67 weatherproof ratings, IK10 vandal-proof ratings, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -30°C to 60°C.

Our scalable CCTV systems can be configured with various storage capacities (e.g., 1TB to 8TB) using multiple hard drives. Typically, we aim to store footage for up to 30 days, with older data overwritten in increments to preserve recent recordings.

Accessing CCTV footage remotely is facilitated through a free app, allowing viewing from any internet-connected computer or mobile device.

Megapixels (MP) determine image quality; higher MP ratings result in clearer details and better zoom capabilities. Options include 2MP (1080P HD), 4MP (2 x 1080P HD resolution), and 8MP (4K UHD).

Our partnership with Dahua offers a wide range of CCTV camera types, including Dome, Bullet, Panoramic, Pignose, and Motorized PTZ cameras, available with zoom and wide-angle fixed lenses to suit various surveillance needs.

Our systems are flexible, allowing you to easily add or adjust the number of cameras and storage capacity as needed.


We use motion sensors with customizable ‘dead zones’ to avoid recording unnecessary movements like swaying foliage, ensuring recordings are triggered only by relevant activity.

Recorded data can be downloaded using USB sticks, external hard drives via USB cable, or through our free app for easy accessibility.

To safeguard data, we offer affordable cloud backup services that store up to a month’s footage, ensuring continuous protection even if physical drives are compromised.

Yes, all our cameras are equipped with night vision mode. This feature ensures clear imaging in low-light conditions, displaying black-and-white footage that enhances visibility during nighttime surveillance.

For cost-effective security options, we provide realistic dummy cameras that resemble real ones, complete with authentic branding and blinking LEDs to deter potential intruders effectively.

Yes, alarm systems can be equipped with pet-immune detectors to prevent small animals from triggering false alarms. These detectors are designed to ignore movements from pets under a certain weight threshold, typically around 9-14 kg, depending on the system. It’s advisable to conduct a test by allowing your pet to move around in front of the detectors when the system is unarmed to ensure they are not detected. Even when the alarm system is disarmed, the detectors may display a small red light to indicate motion detection activity.
