Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do businesses install CCTV?

    Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S).

    You can address OH&S requirements with a video surveillance system that helps you provide a secure and safe working environment for your employees and visitors. Furthermore, it can also help gather evidence when investigating OH&S injury claims.

    Advantages of CCTV Systems for Business

    • Accessibility – Live feeds can give you the ability to quickly and easily view access points in multiple areas of your facility.
    • Profitability – With digital video surveillance, you can have greater control over loss from workplace theft of accidents. It may also help lower liability and insurance costs, especially when being sued.
    • Productivity – Surveillance can discourage workplace violence, harassment and poor customer service.
    • Reliability – New technology mean no more broken or worn-out tapes, and no more costly maintenance.
    • Remote access – Many units can help you oversee your business from anywhere you have remote connectivity.
  • What is the difference between a 4MP and a 6MP system?

    The main difference between the two from a user standpoint is the resolution. 4MP is less clearer than a 6MP system. This means things may not be as clear, especially if the object is far away.

    The 4-megapixel image has twice the detail of the 1080p image (1080P is commonly known as full HD),  meanwhile the cost of 6-megapixel IP cameras is 50% higher than 4MP IP cameras. Obviously, many users are inclined to select 6-megapixel cameras. However, by increasing the image resolution, the required network bandwidth and storage may increase.


  • Which of your cameras have night vision?

    All of our cameras have infra red – or the ability to see at night. At night the cameras adjust to the light by turning into black and white mode.

    Above – 3MP Resolution

    Above – 4K Resolution


    Sample of night vision for 700TVL system. (low resolution)



  • How long does it take to install a CCTV system?

    A typical 4 camera system takes around 4-6 hours to install for either a single storey home / standard office. It will take more time if your building is large or you need more cameras.

  • How does a CCTV surveillance system work?


    The cameras send the information on the data it captures to the DVR or NVR. The video record then:

    • transmits the information to the screen
    • records the information on the hard disc
    • connects to a router which broadcasts it across the web

    This broadcasting is what allows you to access your feed from any computer, iphone or android device.

  • How do I pay for my CCTV System?

    Cash, bank deposit, credit card are all OK. Credit card – a surcharge of 1.5% exists.

    This is expected to be payable on completion of the job. The exception to the rule is if you agree with our staff to specfic alternative payment terms.

  • What warranties do you have on your CCTV products?

    Our CCTV systems have a warranty of 24 months. This is both a parts and labour warranty.

    Our installation team have been in the industry for years. Over this time, they have seen inferior products come and go. We have selected to work with products that we are because of their general quality and the reliability.

  • Whats the difference between an Analog / Digital CCTV system?

    Cameras on an modern analog CCTV system send their video in the traditional base band format over coax or UTP cabling back to a digital video recorder (DVR). Here, video is digitized and stored on hard drives. Most modern DVRs can allow the streaming to be accessed remotely from the LAN, or with the proper configuration, from across the internet.

    IP or Digital video cameras broadcast their video as a digital stream over an IP network. Like an analog system, video is recorded on hard drives, but since the video is an IP stream straight from the camera, there is more flexibility as to how and where that video is recorded. The DVR is replaced with an NVR (network video recorder), which in some cases is just software since it doesn’t need to convert analog to digital. Video footage can then be stored on hard drives as directed by the NVR software.

    Why choose an analog system?

    cost is generally lower. Analog in general is lower quality up to 800TVL only (quite pixellated)

    What is HDCVI / HDTVI?

    These newer technologies allow digital signals to be communicated over COAX cables and thus you are able to use old cables to transmit the data. These are commonly used to upgrade old systems to up to 5MP or even 4K clarity. They are usually more cost effective than upgrading to a completely IP based system.

    Why choose a completely digital system?
    The data for these cameras are transmitted over CAT5/CAT6 cables instead. They run back to an NVR. They are more complicated to set up, but can utilise IP addresses to pull in data from other camera sources (don’t have to be local)


  • How do I use my Hikvision CCTV system?

    Here is a great video that runs through most of the commonly used features of the Hikvision 4.0 version NVR.

  • What are the cabling requirements for CCTV systems?

    What you need:

    • the camera/s
    • The NVR
    • Precrimped CAT5/6 Cables or an installer who supplies the CAT6 cables (with RJ45 ends). (1 per camera and 1 from the NVR to the modem)
    • A monitor or TV (with VGA or HDMI connections)

    Cabling requirements:

    • Run the CAT5/6 cables to the locations you require (1 per camera). The cables should come back to the location where your NVR is located
    • Connect & install the cameras to one end of the cable and connect the other end to the NVR
    • Plug in the monitor via a VGA or HDMI cable to the NVR
    • Connect an ethernet cable from the NVR to the modem (if you wish to do remote viewing).



Case studies

  • Couriers Missed Regularly & Lack of Surveillance

    Joe regularly misses the courier as he works from his home office which currently doesn’t have an intercom monitor. His home office is a granny flat and a fair distance away from his main house. He also regularly meets clients himself and thus is unable to be at home to greet the courier.



    We recommended an IP intercom system for Joe. An IP intercom system would allow Joe to communicate with the courier even if he isn’t around the intercom monitor. His phone would have an app which would also buzz in the event that the door station is pressed. He would then be able to instruct the courier to leave the parcel in specified location while he isn’t home.



    Due to the high value of his parcels, he also decided to implement a CCTV system to have recordings of the courier placing the parcels in the designated locations and would have footage in case something went amiss.

  • Issues with staff when left unattended

    Harry has owned an electrical business for decades and employs 7 staff. He is in his 50s sometimes wants to spend more time with recreational / family activities. While he is doing this, he is worried about the state of his business. He has noticed that he is making less profit and seen a decline in sales.



    He’s decided to install a comprehensive CCTV system covering his workshop & office area. We installed 6 cameras in total – 1 outside (for security) and the rest inside (including 2 in the office). The cctv was set up with remote viewing so Harry could log in from anywhere to check on his staff. He put signs up to ensure his staff knew CCTV were installed.


    Eventually he discovered some of his office staff were slacking off and not picking up phone calls.

  • Resolving inefficient production line & quality control with CCTV

    Smyth is a manager at a metal works factory in Silverwater NSW. There is a long production line and currently there are multiple staff required to view the production line to ensure quality control. They are finding that errors are missed between checkpoints and thus Smyth is looking for a better solution.



    We’ve recommended a motorised camera solution. The cameras are positioned along various points of the production line and zoomed into the production line. A staff member would watch the production line and would stop production as soon as something went amiss so it could be corrected. This has made the quality control process a lot more efficient.
