CCTV is widely recognised as one of the most effective means of both deterring and detecting crime available today.
Whilst CCTV has been typically used for security and gathering evidence, it is now also being utilized as a management and health and safety tool as well. CCTV Systems can also be combined with other security systems to further enhance your security options.
At MCS Security we believe in specifying and installing the best CCTV equipment available, at the best possible price for each client. We feel is critical in giving our clients the most long term cost effective security solutions. We refuse to compromise our standards and our client’s interests by using inappropriate or inferior equipment.
The CCTV systems we install range from the single camera application to multiple cameras and multiple sites which can be monitored and controlled from a single point.
CCTV Systems fall into two generic categories:
Proactive: Proactive systems are monitored by CCTV operators on site or alternatively can be monitored off site via a Remote Video Receiving Centre (RVRC). This utilizes a video transmission system incorporating external intruder detection devices and ISDN, Broadband or Network (LAN or WAN) transmission. Systems can also be viewed from compatible mobile phones.
The advantage that proactive systems have is that in the event of an incident occurring (or about to occur) the operator can intervene by alerting other security staff, key holders or the Police. The operator in many cases also has the ability to issue an audible warning via a public address system at the premises.
Reactive: Reactive systems are typically not monitored by a dedicated CCTV operator or RVRC (although may be partially monitored by staff on site, possibly reception staff). These systems have recording facilities (usually digital) on site which record evidence as an incident takes place.
