CCTV Security System Features
The latest surveillance systems are smart and include high resolution IP and HD cameras with high quality lenses. Footage is sharp, making the grainy images of the past a distant memory. Motion detection is standard, which means cameras detect movement and then start recording, saving disk space on the DVR (Digital Video Recorder). Cameras also have night vision capability. DVRs can store one week and more of video and are capable of recording many cameras, depending on the number of channels. Monitoring footage is easy and can be viewed remotely from a PC, tablet or on your mobile phone from anywhere in the world with dedicated apps across the internet. Cameras can also be monitored across your local network.
Commercial CCTV Cost
Techcube’s service is good value for money, but more expensive than sole traders and part-time installers, as we are highly qualified, experienced and approved by SSAIB. We have been in business since 2007 and in that time have installed more than 2000 CCTV systems. You can be assured of the highest quality workmanship and the best components for your budget. Our cost varies depending on your requirements, the equipment installed, the size of the premises and number of access points. Price will also depend on the specification of equipment and how cables are run.
SSAIB Complete Process Overview
These are the steps we take when engaging with a client, from start to finish.
- You call us to book a free site survey
- We arrange to visit you at your premises for a site survey
- Our surveyor visits your premises to complete survey
- At survey we take these steps:
- Speak to client and find out more about requirements
- Surveyor will carry out site survey
- Risk assessment – surveyor examines how people can break into your premises and the risks of this property
- Surveyor will complete a sketch of the property and works out where to place cameras, camera specifications, where to place Digital Video Recorder (DVR) and where cabling will be run
- The survey is complete
- After the survey, back at Techcube’s office, the surveyor creates a System Design Proposal, which includes the location for each camera, numbers the cameras, e.g. 1 Entrance, 2 front left etc, includes the specification of the cameras and DVR
- Techcube emails the client the System Design Proposal and cost estimate for work, as well as a sales contract and maintenance contract
- Then the client gives feedback on the System Design Proposal (SDP) and that it meets their requirements and the SDP is amended as required, then sent back to the client
- Once client has agreed to SDP and costs etc then Techcube will send a qualified CCTV installer to carry out the installation
- The installer on site will refer to the SDP and original sketch and they will start to place cameras, run cables, position the DVR and establish an internet connection
- Once all installed satisfactorily the installer will carry out the CCTV commissioning procedure and handover checklist:
- The installer will double check the installation, for example ensure cables are terminated correctly, check power supply connected correctly and ensure warning signs are displayed correctly
- The installer will complete a tour of the site with the client, showing each camera location and the location of the Digital Video Recorder
- The installer gives basic training and demonstrates how to operate the CCTV system, how to playback footage, how to backup footage and how to copy footage for evidence for example
- The installer will also show the client how to handle malfunctions and how to carry out basic troubleshooting
- When all of these items are completed and the customer is satisfied then the handover checklist is signed and dated
- An instruction manual for the equipment is provided
- A system log book is provided so every time an installer visits, it is filled in, so a record of who had access is kept – this is for security purposes. The police would fill in the log book if they visited or used the system
- Then an SSAIB insurance approved completion certificate is provided, to confirm that the installation was completed by an SSAIB approved company, and the client can provide this to their insurance company.
