CCTV acts as a crime deterrent

CCTV doesn’t just help you solve crimes when they take place—it can prevent them from occurring entirely. You should always clearly state the presence of CCTV cameras on your property with appropriate signage. When a potential thief sees a CCTV camera or relevant sign, it’s unlikely they will approach your home or business.

If your property does happen to be targeted by a thief or vandal, your CCTV footage can help quickly identify the criminal, preventing any further intrusions.

Keep a constant eye on your property

If you hear unusual activity or noise around your home, you can use your CCTV cameras to inspect the property’s perimeter. This is especially useful if you have blind spots around your property that aren’t visible from windows. If an uninvited visitor appears at your front door, you can identify the person via your CCTV camera system.

Many modern security systems employ remote and wireless viewing via your smartphone, so you can check in on your property when out and about.

CCTV systems require very little maintenance

CCTV systems are set-and-go. Once you’ve had your system installed by a Assured Locksmiths and Security solutions qualified locksmith, they’ll last for several years with little maintenance required.

Typically, a CCTV system will require a quick wipe-over every month or so, and an occasional professional check-up to ensure the system is in full working order.

Point to point wireless link

A point-to-point protocol is a dedicated network connection between two devices, often installed in conjunction with CCTV Camera Systems where there is a long distance between cameras on the same property. For example, between two or more buildings at a school or commercial premises or between a house and garage on a large property.
