Standard Definition Analogue CCTV (SD-CCTV)

  • These systems offer a great value for money option. This system uses coaxial cables throughout your premises which connect to a digital video recorder that downloads all the footage for you.

High Definition- Serial Digital Interface (HD-SDII) systems

  • This is the next level up for security systems and are definitely recommended if your security is more sensitive. This is a higher- end solution with crisp HD imagery but a similar cabling and digital video recorder system.

High Definition Internet Protocol (HD-IP) systems

  • This is the highest level of security systems that include either structured network cables or completely wireless transmission based options where you can access and record from long distances and on chosen devices with real time viewing included. As most industrial and commercial sites are required to have a specific level of security in order to protect their assets this is the option they will generally go for.
