CCTV has become a ‘must have’ for many homes with the rise in domestic burglaries and is no longer the preserve of big industry.
Luckily for all of us, CCTV has become more advanced whilst it has also become much more affordable. And with the growth and development of smartphones you can now monitor your home or business remotely via a phone app.
Our ‘go-to’ CCTV brand is HikVision and whilst they offer a mind-boggling range of cameras which allow us to create a bespoke system for each and every individual customer, we currently recommend the ColorVu range of cameras for most of our residential installations. The technology is impressive as it works to provide full colour images 24/7. A colour image is much more accurate in helping to positively identify an intruder.
The cameras in this series are able to achieve this with a large iris, high-performance sensor and supplement lighting. Large apertures and advanced sensors combine to provide a much clearer and valuable images, no matter how low the light level.
And if that’s not enough then the Hikvision Turbo HD X series of cameras has a built-in detector that captures infrared light emitted by human bodies, distinguishing it from other visual ‘noise’. Once the camera detects a potential intruder, its built-in siren flashes red and blue light and a loud sound with the aim of frightening the intruder away.
