At Allstate Security  we will discuss your needs and budget, and design a system that will best deliver your requirements.

We specialise in providing CCTV systems, which meet the requirements of a variety of property types, such as schools and colleges, sporting grounds, pubs and clubs, retail premises, offices, factories, industrial and construction sites.

CCTV security systems may consist of  a single camera and monitor or can be very elaborate. A more complex system may include multiple cameras, digital recorders, and multiple operators and can be integrated with other security  options such as access control and alarm systems.

Many companies may offer a 'cheaper solution' which may seem more appealing, however CCTV is an area where price affects the quality of the end product, which is the quality of the recorded image and a poor product will provide a poor recorded image.

Allstate recommends that all commercial CCTV systems should be able to provide real-time recording (25fps per camera on the system) on all cameras.

We also recommend that the DVR should be able to record at 4CIF (720x576) resolution in real-time, to ensure the best possible recorded image.

What is CCTV?

In Closed Circuit TV (CCTV), the picture is viewed or recorded, but not broadcast. It was initially developed as a means of security for banks and casinos; however, today it has been developed to the point where it is simple and inexpensive enough to be used in home security systems, and for everyday surveillance.

More specifically, CCTV is a television transmission system in which live or prerecorded signals are sent over a closed loop to a finite and predetermined group of receivers, usually as scrambled radio waves that are unscrambled at the point of reception. CCTV takes numerous forms and performs a wide range of functions ranging from image enhancement for the partially sighted to the transmission of pay-per-view broadcasts.

Although cable television is technically a form of Closed Circuit TV, the term is generally used to describe systems with more specialized applications than a standard broadcast or cable television. Such specialized systems are not subject to regulation by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); however, CCTV Systems using scrambled radio waves are in fact subject to common carrier tariffs and FCC conditions of service.

Common Uses of CCTV

CCTV has many industrial and scientific applications outside of the world of surveillance. Electron microscopy, medical imaging and robotics are all common uses of CCTV, however, the term 'Closed Circuit TV' does in fact most often refer to security and surveillance camera systems. Other common forms of CCTV include live on-site video displays for special events such as various conventions, arena sports and concerts as well as pay-per-view telecasts of sporting events such as boxing and pro wrestling. Also a common use of CCTV is 'in-house' television channels that broadcast to very small and specific receivers such as in hospitals, airports, racetracks, schools, malls, grocery stores, and municipal buildings.

Benefits of CCTV

The demand for public surveillance CCTV has come from the public who clearly appreciate the benefits that CCTV can bring to their commercial domestic area. Properly targeted, installed and monitored CCTV can reduce crime and disorder. It provides the police with early warning of a crime and can assist in identifying those that are responsible. Where offences have occurred, CCTV images have greatly assisted the subsequent police investigation and have saved thousands of hours of investigative time. Although there is research evidence to suggest that CCTV may displace some crime, this is no different to most crime prevention techniques.

All these can be designed to suit your businesses requirements.

Many companies may offer a 'cheaper solution', these may seem cheaper, but CCTV is an area where price affects the quality of the product. Poor product will provide a poor recorded image, and the most important feature of a CCTV system is the quality of the recorded image.

Allstate recommends that all commercial CCTV systems should be able to provide real-time recording (25fps per camera on the sustem) on all cameras. We also recommend that the DVR should be able to record at 4CIF (720x576) resolution in real-time, to ensure the best possible recorded image.
