Getting The Best Deal On A CCTV System For Your Business

Date: 18 April 2022

It’s one thing to invest in a security system for your business, and another to keep it in good working order so it doesn’t fail when you need it most.

Our CCTV expert reveals the 2 best ways to get the biggest bang for your buck on your commercial CCTV system...



In most cases, a maintenance contract is vital. Like your car, your CCTV system needs to be serviced regularly to avoid breakdowns and malfunctions.

A maintenance contract ensures that:

  • Your system is functioning as it should
  • System faults are identified and fixed early
  • Your system won’t fail when you need it most
  • Software is updated regularly to keep your system up to date
  • Your system is doing the job it was bought for

To get the best deal on a CCTV system, you need to consider the aftermath as well as the initial installation cost.

Without a maintenance contract, you could be forking out for individual call-out fees if something goes wrong.

Additionally, if you skimp on the installation fee by choosing a one-man-band or unaccredited installer, you could pay over double the original quote when the professionals have to come in and fix the botched job!


While monitoring isn’t compulsory, it offers business owners peace of mind.

Did you know that BS8418 compliant systems installed by NSI Gold or SSAIB accredited security companies, like Blake’s, qualify for Remote Video monitoring with Police response?

When your intruder alarm is triggered, the RVRC is sent an alert. They then watch your live CCTV footage and analyse the situation. If they discover a threat, immediate Police response can be requested.


You can rest assured that your premises are being watched over, 24 hours a day, every day of the year – and no mysterious activity will go unnoticed. Now that’s peace of mind!

In terms of getting the best deal for your business, this extra feature can save your business endless frustration and heart-ache if a burglar did test his luck.

Instead of having to put in an insurance claim for all your missing stock / equipment - the Police are dispatched as soon as the burglar is identified on your CCTV and the chances of catching him red-handed are much higher!

How else can I get the most from my CCTV system?
