CCTV & IP CAMERAS
What is CCTV?
CCTV or IP Camera?
In a world where we’re all desperate to quickly ensure our properties, businesses and cars are all kept secure, there becomes more and more confusion over what type of camera you should use to protect your valuables.
So what’s the difference between a CCTV system and IP Cameras? Well, as much as they both feed an image back to a device to either view live, record or do both, we have to start by looking at the definition of what a CCTV system is.
CCTV stands for “Closed Circuit Television”, this is a system that is not accessible from the outside world by very definition as it is a “Closed Circuit” which means that it is completely isolated from the internet and traditionally would be viewed on a single screen either a monitor or connected to a TV to view.
Modern technology and the demand for it has seen a significant rise in the use of IP Cameras.
IP Cameras are cameras that are connected to your network either at home or within your business, record their footage either locally or to the cloud directly to ease playing back footage at a later point. This means that the footage can be viewed live through an app, through the web or secured on a hard drive.

Can I view the footage remotely?
Most of our CCTV Solutions mean that they are connected to the internet via the manufacturers app or webpage, meaning you can log in and check up on things, from wherever you are.
What’s the quality like?
Our CCTV Solutions are usually a minimum of HD quality meaning that they record a very high quality image that you can watch back on your phone, tablet or computer.
Can I see the images at night?
Most of our CCTV solutions come with infrared built in, this enables the image to viewed at night. You may be able to see a faint red light on the camera but this is the infrared enabling the images to be seen.
