    What's the best CCTV installation for my business? Is there a business case?

    It depends on your requirements. And budget. Security cameras are ideal for schools, offices, warehouses, emergency services, production lines in factories, etc. They protect:
    • Your business against loss from intruders, unscrupulous employees and missing items from forgetful delivery drivers.
    • Employers against theft, claims and poor productivity – e.g. heatmap playback can indicate which areas of a shop are most popular!
    • Employees' health and safety and lone workers from danger.
    • School pupils and help schools comply with safeguarding responsibilities such as bullying.

    Do I really need a maintenance contract?

    Like a car, your CCTV system is used every day, so over time it will need a service.

    We often hear things like "when we checked, the CCTV system wasn’t recording, for the last two months!"  Ouch! If your main system fails, your  protection goes out of the window... You should perform weekly checks on your equipment. And also use a professional Security company, like Blake's, to regularly service your equipment – once or twice a year depending on the environment of your installation.
    "CCTV system required an update which Technician guided me through and made sure all was working ok before he left.

    Technician was polite and very helpful as was the Technician within Blakes who has assisted me on the phone over the past few months when I had problems with the remote monitoring App...

    A very helpful and efficient company."

    I need a really clear shot, how do I improve the CCTV image quality?

    You wouldn’t put up with a poor quality picture to watch Eastenders, so you shouldn’t put up with a poor quality CCTV picture. If your installer says a clear picture is not possible, you need a professional!

    High-quality CCTV images are critical for identifying criminals, especially if the footage has to be used in court. Factory settings are unlikely to give you what you want from your system. Our professional personnel will ensure you get the best possible picture by:
    • Installing the cameras in the right position – eye level for facial recognition, for example.
    • Ensuring you have the features you need – such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition.
    • Changing the default settings on the equipment to achieve the best possible results - whether it's day or night.
    Rely on professionals, don't settle for motion blur or low lighting! Find out more here.

    What about covert cameras?

    With careful planning and imagination, covert cameras can be very effective. However, it’s not always easy to get the camera in the right position to obtain the desired view whilst hiding the cables etc. We approach each covert installation with flexibility and discretion because each situation tends to be bespoke, depending on the environment - from an office to an industrial setting

    Give us a call on 01702 447800 to run through the options.
    "You shouldn't accept poor quality. Sometimes the settings are wrong, other times the installation itself is poor. Distance is never a valid excuse. Image quality should be the same if the camera is one metre away or 1000!"

    Saving the day for Castle Point Borough Council

    When it rained heavily during the flood season, the council were forced to send a man down to check the drains four times a day! The drain was blocking and flooding into neighbouring gardens causing damage and distress.

    The solution was a wireless security camera, powered by the street lighting supply and run from a 3G router allowing checking from PCs and smart phones. The image is even clearer on the phone than on the screenshot below and the council save money by catching a flood early and avoiding wasted visits!
    Commercial CCTV Systems for Castle Point Borough Council
    "Blakes have worked with Castle Point for a number of years installing and servicing our CCTV and alarm systems. They have always gone above and beyond to help look for solutions to problems. Recently Blakes helped to install a CCTV to monitor a watercourse during flooding events, the site had no internet access and limited electrical supply. Through testing many systems we now have a bespoke system that prevents the need for the watercourse to be checked in person, it can instead be checked via desktop computers and smartphones saving the council both time and money."
    Tim Read, Operational Services Team Leader
    Castle Point Borough Council
