Whilst your security system will provide notification of an event, CCTV allows you to either capture evidence through recorded video or the ability to remotely view your property to check if any break in has actually occurred. CCTV can be installed externally as a deterrent to potential intruders and also internally to give you the ability to keep an eye on pets.

Jim’s Security provides professional grade CCTV systems that record to NVR’s (Network Video Recorder) whilst also providing the ability to view remotely via an app on your phone or through your web browser.

We supply a number of professional grade brands including TVT, Dahua and Hikvision.


The Uses of Surveillance Systems
Your private video surveillance system can be quite useful in a number of ways when installed. Firstly, an installed CCTV camera acts as deterrence against most petty criminals and intruders. Secondly, a surveillance system gives you the opportunity of monitoring your home or pet or loved one from afar. The recorded video feed also allows you to analyse activities around your home or business on a daily or weekly basis. In the case of a crime being committed in your home or office, you will have recorded evidence that can be used in a criminal investigation at a later date.

When considering an investment into a CCTV surveillance system, there are a few points to keep in mind, because they determine the quality of any video surveillance system:

Analog CCTV vs Digital IP Cameras
Digital IP cameras are undoubtable the future of CCTV, Jim’s recommend digital IP cameras as they offer the following advantages over analogue:

  • Higher Image Quality – Higher pixel resolution of the IP cameras means you can zoom into much more details of a scene even after it is recorded, without losing clarity.
  • Power Over Ethernet Cable (POE) – No need for a separate power source for each camera.
  • Easy Management – IP cameras can be easily managed and controlled remotely.

Night Vision
This is the ability to record videos in the dark. To do this, the camera has to have an infrared capability. All of the packages provided by Jim’s include night-vision.

Number of Cameras and Channels

The number of cameras determines the number of different perspectives that you can possibly monitor at once while the number of channels determines the number of cameras you can view on one monitor at once or record at once.

NVR Capacity

This is the amount of hard disk space on the recording medium, which determines the length of video that can be recorded. TVT NVR’s use the latest compression protocol (H.265) which gives 50% more storage compared to many other systems on the market.

Image Quality
This determines how crisp and clear the video signals, and your ability to zoom into recorded footage at later date. Image quality is impacted by the following:

  • Camera Capture Quality: Measured in megapixels (MP).
  • NVR recording and output: Measured in both MP and digital video formats (i.e. 1080P HD and 4K UHD).

Our packages above include 5MP cameras and 4K UHD NVR’s with the ability to capture and output up resolutions of up to 8MP which will future proof your system.

Ordinary CCTV cameras will not last long outdoors. A weatherproof IP66 certified casing is required if you want to monitor the outdoors.

Choice of Camera
We have a wide range of TVT cameras available including mini eyeball, bullet, dome in both wide angle fixed or zoom lenses. The fixed lenses cameras included in our packages above are suitable for most domestic installations however our team will recommend the best camera for your home.
