Sonata Security CCTV Systems Norwich & Ipswich
CCTV systems in Norwich, Cambridge and Ipswich have become the biggest deterrent to any would-be criminal; not getting caught is their most important priority. Having to disguise themselves makes them stand out before they even commit the crime.
The latest CCTV systems allow would-be criminals to be detected before crimes are even committed. CCTV systems that are monitored remotely can also audibly challenge would-be criminals and often this is enough to warn them off.
In recent years, security systems have improved greatly in recording quality, moving from video recorders to hard-drive based digital recording machines. Video can now be stored for up to thirty-one days on one hard drive, allowing information to be accessed for a longer period of time.
The cost of these types of systems has now made CCTV affordable to not only big corporate buildings, but to the domestic market as well. On top of offering CCTV systems to the commercial and domestic markets, we also provide high quality burglar alarms & home security, fire alarms, access control systems & electric gates.
Security Systems Cambridge
Domestic security systems can be connected to the home television system to allow viewing of the CCTV system on the televisions around the home. They can also be connected to a smart phone so you can view your CCTV while you’re away from home.
Cameras for the security system are no longer the big bulky housings we are used to seeing – small discreet cameras can now be installed for minimum impact on the aesthetics of the building. Cameras can also now record in total darkness, offering total 24-hour protection.
True day-night cameras offer the best of both worlds, with high resolution colour during the day and high resolution monochrome at night.
Sonata Security have a high reputation for offering our clients within Norwich, Cambridge and Ipswich bespoke security systems through its own monitoring station, offering a cost effective and flexible service.
Monitored CCTV systems
Standard CCTV systems are often only effective if they are being watched 24 hours a day. Often, pictures of an event are viewed only after it has happened, and hours of video needs to be watched to find that event.
With monitored CCTV this is no longer the case. You can have peace of mind that while you are away from your premises, it is being monitored by fully trained staff. The system will alert the receiving centre of any unauthorised entry and the operator will then, via broadband link, use the on site public address to challenge the offender.
Usually this is enough to deter would-be criminals but, if not, key holders and police are phoned and the offender informed via public address system. The client can also access the system remotely, if required, to check their premises and to allow access for out-of-hours visits. Sonata Security can offer bespoke CCTV monitoring services to clients through its own monitoring station, offering a cost effective and flexible service.
IP Based CCTV Systems
There are plenty of security installers operating throughout Norwich, Ipswich, and Cambridge, but not all have the experience and industry accreditations that you rely upon to ensure you receive the highest level service and the right CCTV system to suit your needs. Being NSI NACOSS Gold approved Sonata Security is in an excellent position to supply you with the latest IP based CCTV solutions, specifically tailored to suit your needs. IP Based CCTV Systems give users much more freedom than conventional analogue solutions. System users can store many recordings with up to 100 images per second, from as many cameras as they choose; the only limitation is the size of the data storage on a computer or server.
The image quality is superior and doesn’t degrade over time, or with multiple copies. Modern high definition cameras provide excellent image quality and can be used not only for IP based CCTV Systems but also for other solutions, such as CCTV Facial Recognition.
Another bonus of an IP based CCTV system is that it can use pre-existing networks within buildings. This reduces both the installation costs and the inconvenience of having to have the system wired.
With an IP based CCTV system it is also much easier to sort through all of your recorded data as you are allowed to search for specific dates and times. Also, you are able to connect to your CCTV system via the internet allowing you to check your premises or look through your archive.
Our specialist team of CCTV Engineers are experienced in installing both IP based and analogue CCTV systems and our knowledgeable Security Consultant can advise you on the best type of system to suit your needs whether it’s analogue, IP based or a hybrid of the two.
