CCTV Systems


CCTV - Closed Circuit Television. A television system intended as a "closed" system, rather than broadcast system, to be viewed by only a very limited number of viewers e.g. 1 camera to 1 monitor in its simplest form.

Cameras Work

Statistics point to major reductions in the amount of crime being committed where there are cameras are installed. An article in 'New Scientist' magazine showed that simply installing a system can reduce crime, in the areas covered, by over 95%. As our customers inform us that they are having similar results in all types of business, you will begin to appreciate why CCTV is seen by many as the best system for deterrent and detection.

Benefits of CCTV

CCTV equipment can provide instant alerts when trouble occurs, ensuring that crime against people, theft and vandalism are all substantially reduced. And when crime does occur, CCTV system incident recording can provide valuable evidence, improving the likelihood of a conviction.

CCTV security system technology and CCTV equipment can be used in both internal and external environments to watch over and protect people, property, vehicles and valuables.

CCTV Security Systems - In a retail environment

In the retail sector, the use of CCTV is not confined to the prevention of crime. Properly designed and implemented, modern digital CCTV also provides valuable management information, as well as crowd control, staff monitoring and support.

With a safer environment and increased peace-of-mind for staff, customers and the general public, there are benefits in terms of increased traffic and business.

Internal shrinkage is a major problem for the retail sector. By using CCTV to monitor cashier activity, these losses can be significantly reduced.

Covert & Discreet Cameras

We can supply and install cameras hidden inside a variety of everyday appliances and inconspicuous housings. Take a look at how they can improve the effectiveness of your security installations!

CCTV is now commonplace in most environments with a vast array of equipment available. As a professional installation company, we can provide the best solution to meet your requirements and budget.

Our solutions incorporate only quality equipment from manufactures that have been tried, tested and installed by ourselves.

What Digital CCTV Recording can do for you

Quality and Security

Digital recording provides high quality images far in advance of standard video tapes. Images may be easily copied or emailed without degradation. Authentication software ensures images are tamperproof.

Standalone Digital Recorder

Standalone Digital Recorders offer a simple upgrade for your current system retaining VCR style controls for easy use.


To ensure your CCTV system is working properly and up to date Audio Visual Security can provide planned routine and preventative maintenance visits to your system, please contact us for more information.

Police Investigations

For CCTV recordings to be effective in detecting and investigating crime they must be fit for purpose and easily accessible by police investigators. For digital CCTV there are 4 main areas that must be considered:

"CCTV is a powerful weapon in preventing and detecting crime – just look how it helped us catch the nail bomber in a matter of days. But without proper maintenance, clean lenses and decent tapes it's a bit like looking at things through a snowstorm."

Quote by: Metropolitan Police Service Commissioner Sir John Stevens

Whether you are protecting your business or your home against robbery and theft, if you use CCTV to protect your premises you should have your system checked and maintained.



Domestic Users

At Audio Visual Security we understand how you can best protect your home. Our monitored home protection packages protect you, your loved ones and your home from burglary, unwanted intruders and personal attack, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

We offer a product range that can help you to build a home protection package to suit your needs. Audio Visual Security's packages are composed of two elements that feature an alarm system and a monitoring service. Our packages can also include fire & carbon monoxide detection as standard.

We have been installing security system into domestic properties for over 10 years and when you choose Audio Visual Security you can rest assured that the quality, reliability and ease of use of the system will be second to none.

In buildings where installation of cables is difficult or impossible we can use wireless equipment to ensure the aesthetics of the installation is good and the overall look of the property is not compromised.

Intruder Alarms

Audio Visual Security installs and maintains intruder alarms to meet the rigorous standards demanded of the NSI.

Our systems are top quality and we only utilise the best in detection to provide you with a system that you can depend on to give reliable performance.

Burglary is a crime that not only strips you of your valuable possessions, but also invades your personal privacy. The emotional distress of this crime cannot be measured. Our professional burglar alarm acts as a deterrent, and will reduce the likelihood of this crime happening to you.

Homes without security systems are nearly 3 times more likely to be broken into than homes with security systems. Businesses without alarm systems are 4.5 times more likely to be burgled than commercial locations with electronic security in place. (Source: Temple University) Therefore not only are you less likely to be broken into, but having a security system often reduces insurance costs enough to make it pay for itself within a few years.

Intruder and hold-up alarm systems installed by Audio Visual Security in domestic properties conform to the requirements of PD6662:2004 which is a UK scheme for the implementation of European Standard BSEN 50131-1:2004. As of October 2005 all intruder and hold-up alarm systems installed within the UK by approved companies must conform to these standards.

Intruder and hold-up alarm systems are now graded from grade 1 (lowest risk) to Grade 4 (highest risk). Audio Visual Security only installs systems which fall into grades 2, 3. Also an intruder and hold up alarm system can be 'audible only' or 'monitored', we will carry out a risk assessment at the survey stage and lease with customers and their insurers to determine which grade and type of system is required.


Sometimes referred to as 'bells only' these systems can only be installed as a grade 2 system. This type of system is very popular in the UK and is installed mainly in domestic properties. In the event of the alarm being triggered by an intruder the system will usually activate an external sounder and a strobe providing an audible and visual method of alarm notification. Systems of this type can also operate automatic dialling equipment (known as a home automated monitoring system) which can be used to notify a key holder that the alarm has been triggered by either a voice message or SMS text message. Systems of this type cannot be used to dial the police.

Automatic Barriers

Automatic Barriers

Audio Visual Security supply and install a wide and varied range of barriers which provide a solution for every application – manual barriers, automatic barriers, height restricting barriers and hooped barriers.

Traffic Control Barriers are the perfect solution to secure car parks where an automated gate would be too slow. Audio Visual Security only supplies continually rated automatic barriers which ensure the installation is robust with the capability to deal with high volumes of traffic.

Manual Barriers are an ideal solution for low usage, securing a car park overnight, or for longer periods, using a secure locking device.

Access Control

At Audio Visual Security we design, install and maintain access control systems to meet your exact requirements.

Our systems range from single door keypad coded access through to multi door software driven systems capable of managing even the largest of building complexes. We install Audio and Video entry systems and can provide interface connections for connection to other on-site systems if required.

We have vast experience in the area of access control and can recommend a suitable system from the many we regularly install. Whether it is to stop unwanted intruders passing the reception area unnoticed or restricting access to certain areas within a building, timekeeping and payroll purposes, we have the product to suit your circumstances. Our systems can be push button, keypad coded, swipe card or operated using an electronic fob and scaled from single installations to major building systems.

Audio Entry Systems are a cost effective method of allowing you to identify your caller before you open the door to them.

Video Entry Systems are similar to Audio Entry Systems except you can see the identity of your caller before you open the door to them.

Card Entry Systems are an ideal way of controlling access in and around your building. Systems range from standalone to multiple readers controlled by a PC. Cards can be programmed to only allow access into authorized areas.

Coded Entry Keypads are a cost effective method of allowing access through a single door. Codes can be periodically changed to enhance your security.

DDA Systems, these door entry panels and systems are designed to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

Whatever your needs, from large security access control systems to minor entry system jobs, we offer the highest standards of care and equipment, giving you peace of mind for security.
