An overview of CCTVGardwell Secure Systems use a range of CCTV equipment from Samsung, Tele Eye and Xtralis Adpro

At Gardwell Secure Systems, we believe that CCTV is an effective tool in tackling criminal activity and protecting your business.The mere placement of CCTV cameras acts as a deterrent as they are usually monitored 24/7, therefore easily detecting criminals. Through our CCTV control centres, we are able to offer a remote monitored CCTV service to protect your premises when you aren’t there. CCTV systems also act as a provision of evidence to successfully prosecute criminals for any theft or damage to your property.

CCTV is extremely cost-effective compared to other security systems such as constant manning of premises by security officers and is an excellent crime deterrent. The CCTV systems ensure your premises are constantly protected at all times and whilst it should not be seen as a complete replacement for all of your security needs it is an excellent tool for detecting external threats of crime before they take place.

We pride ourselves on delivering:

  • User friendly recordable CCTV camera systems
  • Remote, internet-based CCTV systems which are accessible by pc software and smartphone apps.
  • Voice activated systems to deter unwanted intruders
  • Monitored CCTV systems which allow effective police response
  • Provide you with management information covering areas such as Health and Safety,
    Staff Safety (Lone Worker), and Sales and Marketing

Installation of CCTV systems

During the design and installation phases of your CCTV systems, our team will work with you to determine the optimum locations and types of cameras to be used aswell as any requirements for sufficient lighting for night time activation. Once installed you will be fully briefed on how to utilise the system.

After installation, your CCTV system will be placed on a ‘bed-in’ period for one week. This is to ensure that the CCTV is working efficiently, that cameras cover your whole site and to ensure lighting is sufficient. 

We will also assess normal activity to remove any likelihood of false alarms. In the event of activity being detected, activations have to be acknowledged and results recorded by the staff at our remote monitoring centre before being cleared from our systems, thereby removing human error.

You can be absolutely safe in the knowledge that nothing untoward will happen to your premises and if it does we can mitigate any damage to the site through proactive management of the situation.

Maintenance of CCTV systems

Once installed we recommend that you have your CCTV systems serviced twice annually to clean any detectors and lenses, check detectors are working correctly and the cameras are responding.

Typical issues with security systems that can be found during these visits include:

  • Instructions for the remote monitoring centre being outdated, due to changed working practices or site layouts
  • Lack of on-site lighting for clear images at night
  • Blocked pathways and items in front of the detectors, reducing their programmed area of coverage
  • Staff activity when the system is armed, increasing false activations
  • Reduction in other security measures such as fencing, secured access, and secured storage for high value items
