Why install CCTV or security cameras in your home or business?
CCTV and security cameras protect what matters: your home, your livelihood, and your family. Here are some of the benefits of expertly installed security systems:
- Criminals that see active security cameras surrounding a property are more likely to move on
- Quality security cameras record during the day and night, with night vision cameras providing exceptional clarity
- You can view footage captured on your security camera or CCTV anywhere at any time on your iPhone or Android phone
- Get real-time notifications of detected movement so that you can respond
- Store one month’s footage or more
- Easily customise your security system to suit your property – more cameras can be added indoors and outdoors in the future if needed
- In the unfortunate event your house is robbed, damaged, or vandalised, footage can be given to the police to help prosecute the offender
What you need to know about CCTV and security cameras
More effective than a guard dog, security camera systems and CCTV (closed-circuit television) have skyrocketed in popularity among residential and commercial customers looking to minimise the risk of burglary, vandalism, and worse.
Security camera installation involves hardwiring cameras in strategic locations outside of your home or business. The goal is to discourage criminals, improve safety, and give residents, family members, and employees total peace of mind.
A professional CCTV camera system also includes hardwired security cameras. In addition, it comprises of an NVR recording device and remote viewing, meaning you can watch live and recorded footage from your smartphone.

Do I need an NVR?
A network video recorder (NVR) is a device that records camera footage. A basic NVR has one hard drive; higher-end models have up to four internal hard drives. An NVR plugs into your network (usually into your NBN modem or networking switch) and communicates with your cameras via your internet modem/router.
Special hard drives must be used when installing NVRs. Because they record information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the incorrect hard drive may not cope, causing it to fail.
To avoid hard drive failure, we recommend you use a RAID-based NVR. With a backup drive, these allow you to record more footage with less risk.
Our bespoke CCTV and security camera installation process
Your security is our top priority, and we perform a detailed analysis of your property to strategically plan and install a highly effective system. Here’s a quick breakdown of our tailored installation process:
- First, we visit your home or business and perform a full CCTV camera audit. We examine the structure of your property, determine if there is a roof crawl space or space under your floors, assess the walls, and explore the layout.
- We then share our recommended installation strategy with you, discuss your security needs, and gain your input on camera positioning. We explain the fields of vision of each camera, so you can understand the areas of your home that will be recorded.
- We evaluate your home network to ensure your internet speeds can handle the new security camera system. We’ll assess each component of your network – wiring, other hardware, existing connection, and Wi-Fi – to ensure your new system runs smoothly.
- We expertly install your custom CCTV system. Afterwards, we will sit down with you and show you how to operate your cameras and view the footage. You enjoy total peace of mind.
Need your old security system replaced?
If you have a security system over ten years old, it may be obsolete. Your cameras may be using out-of-date coaxial cables and recording terrible quality images and videos – if they record anything at all.
Often, old digital video recorders (DVRs) have failed hard drives, and homeowners don’t find out until it’s too late, and an incident has occurred. What’s more, analogue camera systems aren’t always compatible with today’s NBN and networking devices and are typically prone to dropping out.
Think about it this way: you wouldn’t watch a movie on a VHS. Why leave something as important as your home in the hands of old technology?
We can upgrade your old security system with leading-edge tech that’ll provide years of protection.
