CCTV Controls

CCTV controls can be configured to memorise any locations to increase protection of targeted ‘priority’ areas. Controls can be configured & tailored to provide unrivalled surveillance of manned or unmanned sites.

CCTV Cameras

Adept Security Systems offer a complete range of CCTV cameras from brand name manufacturers providing colour images under the most demanding conditions.

CCTV Recording & Storage

Digital technology is available to provide high quality images & high frame rate recording with enhanced & refined hard drive usage using motion detection / conditional refresh – motion JPEG or full frame JPEG MPEG 4 H264 compression technologies are all available @ 2CIF 4CIF qualities.

Adept Security Systems only use professional industrial hard drives which provide longevity of usage. All systems are designed using the Police Scientific Development Branch Guide lines on performance, complying with the current British Standards the Data Protection Act 2008.

Camera technology may be put into categories based on capabilities, For example:

  • Day Light Colour Cameras Or Monochrome Cameras
    which operate under daylight or artificial overt lighting conditions
  • True Day Night Cameras (Colour & Monochrome )
    which operate under daylight or artificial overt lighting conditions providing colour images & or monochrome images when lighting conditions are unable to support colour images
  • Infra -Red Night Time Cameras (In Monochrome)
    which provide colour images under daylight or artificial lighting conditions or covert Infrared lighting conditions providing monochrome images
  • Thermal Imaging Cameras (No lighting Required)
  • ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) Cameras
    which operate under daylight or covert lighting conditions, providing colour images & monochrome images when lighting conditions are unable to support colour images. These cameras are calibrated to deliver the appropriate images based on predetermined fixed distances & the speed of the vehicle travelling.

Camera technology is historically available in analogue & digital formats which are the normative CCTV system, which is terminated at 75 Ohms providing a 1 volt peak to peak video signal at the display & recording equipment.

New technological developments into High Definition CCTV is providing huge benefits in the quality of images & recorded video data from Mega Pixel cameras.

Mega Pixel cameras offer the clients the capability to install fewer CCTV cameras in certain applications & achieving vastly improved real-time & encoded images, and in some cases negating the requirement for conventional Pan Tilt Zoom cameras

Dedicated IT data networks using Local Area & Wide Area Networks normally support HD-CCTV in most cases the bandwidth required is far higher than that normally available. So in most cases we install a dedicated network to support HD-CCTV

Important points which should be considered when designing any system include:

  • Lighting during the hours of darkness.
  • Number of Cameras.
  • Recording Quality – Images per Second – Resolution of Recording.
  • Period of archived images / Buffer in Hard Drive before loss of data occurs.
  • What is the system to be used for, what is the system to achieve for you the client.
