    Cloud CCTV Systems

    CCTV footage can be stored in the cloud, where you can access it from any internet-enabled device 24/7, no matter where you are in the world, with no need for any software installations or interference with your existing IT systems.

    Using verified log-in credentials, you can manage your entire footage library from one screen. Relevant events will be brought to your attention and smart search features like vehicle colour, number plate recognition, or even specific clothing allow you to find incidents in a matter of seconds. 

    • Easy to use: Intuitive interface, find information in seconds
    • Monitor usage: Check who accessed the system, what they viewed, and if they changed anything
    • Share footage easily: Send footage to colleagues or the police with two clicks by SMS or Email
    • User permission: Set permissions for which cameras each user can see
    • Tamper proof: Back up data in the cloud in an encrypted form so footage cannot be stolen or destroyed
    • Critical alerts: Be notified if a camera goes down, is moved or has been tampered with
    • Scalability: These solutions are incredibly easy to upgrade and expand. Cloud storage is essentially unlimited, and storage packages are available at a wide range of budget-friendly price points.

    On-Site Systems

    On-premise CCTV systems are exactly as they sound. Servers and data are stored entirely in-house. These systems use backups and disaster recovery software to extract the data when you need it during a network failure. They are available with wired and wireless options, and you can view the live and archived footage either through your local PC or a mobile device.

    • Unlimited customisation: Because the servers and network are all local and specific to you, they can be fully customised, regardless of how niche your requirements may be

    • Compliance: Companies with strict data compliance laws tend to prefer storing their data on site, rather than in the cloud. This is especially important in healthcare, as well as legal and financial settings

    • Suits in-house IT teams: If you have an internal IT team, having your servers and network in-house may save money in the long run on support and maintenance contracts
