HAVE A READ THROUGH OUR REAL CUSTOMER INSTALLATION CASE STUDIES

CASE STUDY – STRAIGHT FORWARD ALARM PACKAGE SOLUTION & CUSTOM CCTV SYSTEM QUOTE

PIETRO – DOUBLE BAY NSW – Full Security Overhaul

  • Double brick house
  • Had an old analog  CCTV system and old alarm system
  • He was doing renovations and wanted an overhaul of his alarm / cctv and intercom system.

Solution: Alarm Pack 4 – Bosch 6000 (protects up to 144 different zones using PIR sensors / reed switches

We’ve recommended a new Bosch 6000 system for him (due to the large number of zones) and utilised wireless reed switches as cabling for his windows would be a significant job. He would now be able to control and receive notifications from his alarm from his phone.

Alarm Pack 4 from $1150 fully installed incl. GST (for 3 PIR sensors. Add $110 for each additional PIR sensor and $176 for each wireless reed switch on windows and doors)

Solution: Custom CCTV Solution – 2 x Hikvision 4MP motorised darkfighters + 2 x Hikvision 8MP dome cameras + 2 x Hikvision 6MP dome cameras

Pietro wanted the perimeter of his house covered with special importance to the front of the property. We’ve installed 2 x Hikvision 4MP motorised darkfighter cameras for the front yard which would boost his chances of capturing number plates at night. These would operate alongside 8MP cameras to capture superior quality footage during the day. For the rest of his house, he implemented dome 6mp cameras to capture every angle of his home.

Custom quote available. Please contact our team for a competitive quote.

CASE STUDY – STRAIGHT FORWARD CCTV PACKAGE & PERIMETER ALARM SYSTEM

LAURA – TURRAMURRA NSW – Plants Destroyed & Statues Stolen

  • Having issues with front & side yard’s plants being destroyed and cut on a frequent basis
  • Issues with stolen pot plants and statues from the front of her house
  • Feels unsafe and wants to be alerted if anyone tries to open her doors or windows whilst the family is asleep

Solution: CCTV Pack 1 –  4 x 5MP Uniview Dome Cameras

We’ve recommended a 4 camera system to cover the front and the side. Ie. 2 at the front and 2 along the side. One of the front cameras will have conduit running out to the fence and the camera installed on the fence itself to ensure any activity on the pedestrian footpath is captured. The camera system we’ve recommended will have very low light colour image (thus optimal at night). We’ve set the recording at 24/7 to ensure nothing is missed.

4 x 5MP Uniview Dome Camera System – $2300 fully installed incl GST / Conduit – approx extra $200 per camera as required

Solution: Perimeter Alarm Package – Bosch 6000 system using wired glass breaking sensors and wired reed switches

We’ve recommended a perimeter alarm system consisting of reed switches on the doors and windows. This allows Laura to arm the alarm at night. The alarm will trigger if one of the doors or windows are opened.

Perimeter Alarm Package – $1990 Fully Installed incl GST

CASE STUDY – STRAIGHT FORWARD CCTV PACKAGE INSTALLATION

JAMES – AMBARVALE NSW – Aggressive & Troublesome Neighbour

  • Neighbour constantly throws objects over client’s fence and yell profanities
  • Most rubbish tossing or object throwing occurs at night
  • Need CCTV surveillance and recordings to provide the Police with evidence of the offenses that cannot be seen during the day

Solution: CCTV Pack 2 –  4 x 6MP Hikvision Dome Cameras

We’ve recommended a 4 camera system to cover the front and the side with the offending neighbour. The camera system we’ve recommended will have very low light colour image and have inbuilt microphones to capture audio recordings. We’ve set the recording at 24/7 to ensure nothing is missed. We’ve also increased the size of the hard drive to ensure footage is captured for 1 month minimum.

4 x 6MP Hikvision Dome Camera System – $2990 fully installed incl GST  / Hard Drive upgrade $300 & Double Storey Fee $250

CASE STUDY – STRAIGHT FORWARD CCTV PACKAGE & IP INTERCOM SYSTEM

JOE – ST. MARY NSW – Courier Missed Regularly

  • Frequently misses the courier even though he works from home
  • Does not have an existing intercom system in place
  • Home office situated in a granny flat, a fair distance from his main house where the courier delivers the goods
  • Also in regular attendance with customers in his granny flat, so cannot greet courier quick enough at his main house

Solution: CCTV Pack 1 –  4 x 5MP Uniview Dome Cameras

Due to the high value of his parcels, he 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.

4 x 5MP Uniview Dome Camera System – $2300 fully installed incl GST

Solution: Hikvision IP Intercom – offers video and audio communication with visitors, mobile app alerts when doorbell is pressed, access control option to allow couriers through

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.

Hikvision Villa IP Intercom System from $1870 Fully Installed Incl GST (includes distributor and housing for door station). Optional extra costs include double storey fee, additional monitors or additional door stations.

  • Over 20 years in Electrical business, employing 7 staff
  • Wants to spend more time with family, but have not had the solution to monitor staff
  • Seen a decline in sales and loss of profits to be able to work remotely

Solution: CCTV Pack 2 –  6 x 6MP Hikvision Dome Cameras

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.

4 x 6MP Hikvision Dome Camera System – $2990 fully installed incl GST / Plus 2 x additional cameras & upgrade to 8 channel NVR $1200

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.

    8MP black and white

    4MP Colorvu (night time colour)

    nightvision700tvl

    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 3-5 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.

    For an 8 camera system on a double storey home, it couild take up to a day (6-8 hours).

    For a warehouse, we find that on average 8 cameras will take up to 2 days.

  • How does a CCTV surveillance system work?

    CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) systems use cameras to capture video footage, which is then transmitted to a monitor or a recording device.

    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.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN155d9UC80

  • 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).

     

     

  • Are there any factors that can affect the installation time?

    Yes, there are several factors that can affect the installation time of a CCTV system, including the complexity of the setup, the location of the cameras, and the type of cameras being used. Additionally, the experience and expertise of the installer can also play a role in the installation time

  • Is it possible to install a CCTV system by oneself?

    It is possible to install a CCTV system by oneself, but it may require some technical knowledge and experience. If you are not familiar with CCTV installation, it is recommended to hire a professional to ensure proper installation and functionality of the system.

  • What are the benefits of CCTV?

    A: CCTV systems can provide a range of benefits, including:

    • Deterring crime: CCTV cameras can act as a visual deterrent to would-be criminals, making them less likely to target a property or area.
    • Monitoring activity: CCTV cameras can be used to monitor activity in and around a property, allowing for quick response in case of an emergency.
    • Gathering evidence: CCTV footage can be used as evidence in case of a crime or incident, helping to identify suspects and understand what happened.
    • Improving safety: CCTV cameras can help to improve safety by monitoring for potential hazards and alerting authorities in case of an emergency.
  • How long can CCTV footage be stored?

    The length of time that CCTV footage can be stored depends on the type of recording device being used. Some CCTV systems can store footage for up to a month, while others can store it for several months or even years. The storage capacity can also vary depending on the resolution and frame rate of the cameras.

    For example, a 4 camera 6mp system set on 20fps will record around 1 week on 24/7 recording before it is written over.

  • Who can access my CCTV feed?

    The footage is usually only accessible to authorized personnel, such as the property owner or the police. However, in some cases, the footage may be used as evidence in a court case and may be made available to the public through the legal process.

    If you keep your credentials safe and don’t share it with anyone you should be the only one who would be able to access it.

  • Why do Melbourne Homes especially need CCTV?

    Melbourne, like any other city, is not immune to crime. Homes in Melbourne need CCTV (closed-circuit television) for a variety of reasons.

    Firstly, CCTV acts as a deterrent to would-be burglars. When they see cameras installed on a property, they are less likely to attempt a break-in. This is because they know they are being watched and recorded, and there is a higher chance of them being caught.

    Secondly, CCTV provides homeowners with peace of mind. When you are away from your home, it can be difficult to know what is happening inside. With CCTV, you can check in on your property remotely, giving you the ability to keep an eye on things even when you are not there.

    Thirdly, CCTV can be used to provide evidence in the event of a break-in. If a criminal does manage to break into your home, the footage captured by the cameras can be used to identify the perpetrator and assist in their capture. This can also be helpful in insurance claims, as it can be used to prove that a crime has occurred.

    Finally, CCTV is becoming more affordable, making it accessible to a wider range of homeowners. With the advancement in technology, CCTV systems are becoming more user-friendly and can be easily integrated with mobile phones / tablets

    In conclusion, CCTV is a valuable investment for Melbourne homeowners. It acts as a deterrent to burglars, provides peace of mind, can be used to provide evidence in the event of a crime, and is becoming more affordable and useful

  • Can I access my CCTV system from multiple devices?

    Yes, many CCTV systems allow you to access your footage from multiple devices, such as smartphones, tablets

  • What is the difference between a DVR and NVR?

    A DVR (Digital Video Recorder) records footage from analog cameras, while an NVR (Network Video Recorder) records footage from IP cameras.

    We would only use DVRs to replace older systems these days. NVRs are much more capable in general.

  • How do I retrieve footage from my CCTV system?

    Most CCTV systems have a playback function that allows you to search for and view footage

  • Do I need to have an internet connection to use CCTV?

    Not necessarily. Some CCTV systems can operate independently without an internet connection, but having an internet connection may provide additional features and functionality like remote viewing and alerts when people come onto your property.

  • How many CCTV cameras do I need for my property?

    The number of cameras needed will depend on the size and layout of your property. A professional CCTV installer can help you determine the optimal number of cameras.

    You’ll need to decide if you want complete coverage or general coverage.

  • How often should I back up my CCTV footage?

    The frequency of CCTV backup depends on the nature of the business or premises being monitored. For example, if you own a retail store, it is may be necessary to back up your CCTV footage weekly or monthly to ensure that any incidents that occur in the store are captured on camera. In contrast, if you own a home, backing up the footage everytime an interesting event happens.

    It is important to ensure that your storage system has a large enough capacity to allow sufficient time to pass before the data overwrites on the hard drive

    It is important to note when the CCTV is beeping – as this can sometimes mean a hard drive failure and it has stopped recording at that point.
