One of the most common questions I’m asked when installing a customer’s system they’ve purchased themselves is ‘what is the benefit of having a Professional system installed?

The benefits are :

– You get 12 months of support with every system I supply. – Training on how to use it.

– Professional installation. – Equipment is built with professional quality components, meaning you get superior images and peace of mind that your equipment isn’t going to fail prematurely.

It’s not just about the number of megapixels your camera has, other things to consider are the quality of components in the camera and recorder, do you have a DVR or NVR? what processor is used in the camera, etc?

You can see the difference in picture quality in the photos below which show a professional 5MP IP, NVR system and a DIY 5MP DVR system.

Although I must concede that some of the better quality DIY systems do offer a level of security if you are on a budget.

The attached screenshots show how a camera installed incorrectly can affect the quality of your images due to poor location, positioning and ‘IR glare’. What a difference it made once I repositioned the camera, you would think It was a different camera fitted with superior night vision due to the image being so different, but in fact, the only difference is its positioning.

We complete lots of installations for Homes and businesses, but it was a real honour to win the contract to install and maintain the CCTV for Harborne Medical in Harborne, Birmingham where our cameras will help protect the Patients, Staff and property of this NHS centre.
