CCTV Installation for Care Homes
Protect Care Home Residents and Staff with a Commercial CCTV System
We supply, install and maintain CCTV installation solutions for care homes, residential and dementia homes in London, Essex, Kent and anywhere within the M25.
There have been numerous distressing incidents of abuse, theft and neglect in care homes which has given focus to whether CCTV camera and systems should be installed in the care home environment. Management in care homes are aware of the need to protect residents at their care facilities and offer a robust solution that will not only protect and give dignity to residents but ensure high quality service and care is given by care home staff. CCTV installation systems are an effective tool to help protect people from the risk of abuse or to investigate concerns or allegations about possible abuse or crime. A number of care homes have already installed CCTV systems.
CCTV gives a number of other benefits including providing reassurance to relatives, deterring and detecting abusive behaviour and highlighting poor quality care. CCTV systems also provide clear evidence for unjustified legal and insurance claims, surveillance of care for residents when short-staffed and improved general security for the care home building, residents and employees. Care homes can gain greater confidence from residents’ relatives and family for their quality of care and be able to view the care being given at all times of the day and night across a range of staff rotas.
CCTV systems can be used for staff training purposes to demonstrate and train best practice skills, protect staff from wrongful accusations and also offer supervision and surveillance out of hours when managers are not on-site.
Our CCTV systems provide 24/7 surveillance and you can access and monitor your CCTV system remotely from anywhere using your phone, tablet or PC.
Because of our SSAIB accreditation, CCTV can be monitored by a monitoring centre who will contact the relevant care home management in the first instance.
CCTV is a low cost way to add security, safety and protection in your care home facility and we can work with you to find the best solution for your needs. Our CCTV systems can also combine with our business alarm systems to offer a higher security specification to protect and safeguard your care home.

Currently there is no legal requirement for a CCTV system to be installed in a care home. Covert and overt CCTV surveillance has legitimate uses and benefits, and the decision for using CCTV should be weighed up with people’s rights to privacy. Care home management will need to consider and comply with legislation including the Data Protection Act 1998, the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 and the Human Rights Act 1998, as well as consider consent from residents and relatives to be monitored and filmed, authorised access to and storage of CCTV footage and the length of time that CCTV footage is held on file.
