If you’re looking to set up a system from scratch, we would recommend a new install to purchase an IP CCTV System as this setup will ensure you’re future proof.

Consider the following before purchasing a CCTV Kit, or if you’re looking build your own CCTV Kit

1 – Where are you going to install the camera? Indoors or outdoors.

The last thing you want to do is purchase outdoor cameras for installation indoors. We mostly stock outdoor professional cameras, ranging from 2mp to 12mp – Bullet, Turret, Dome cameras. The needs for these cameras vary, but the dome camera range is the most popular. Why? Because of its construction, and being rather discreet, they will not stick out as the typical Bullet camera, that is unless you’re looking for people to see your security camera.

2 – How many cameras do you need?

As NVRs and DVRs come with 4 / 8 / 16 / 32 channels only, it makes sense to purchase the right recorder should you wish to add more cameras in the future.

3 – Lens type.

These are prominently 4 different type of lenses
