FAQ

CCTV stands for closed-circuit television. It is an unmanned surveillance system that monitors and records activity in the area within focus of its mounted video camera, 24 hours a day.

CCTV is designed for security and surveillance purposes, predominantly to help prevent and detect crime. It plays a huge part in today’s society.

Did you know, the first CCTV system with an analogue camera was used to monitor a rocket launch in Germany in 1942?

CCTV security cameras are a powerful visual deterrent to criminals, so they can dramatically increase the security of your home. Thieves aren’t keen to have their every move video-recorded and are much less likely to target your property as a consequence.

CCTV can be positioned around the outside of your property to cover blind spots where visibility from the windows is not possible. In response to hearing an unusual noise, you can monitor your outdoors area without leaving the house.

If you receive a visitor after dark, this system also provides peace of mind and added safety, allowing you to check your CCTV monitor before you open the door. This is particularly useful for people who live alone or for those who are vulnerable/elderly.

CCTV is not just a preventative system, but also a source of evidence in a court of law. In a worst-case scenario situation where your home is burgled or vandalised, CCTV footage of the incident can be handed to police and used to identify the criminal.

One main benefit that CCTV has over many other types of electronic security systems is its minimal need for maintenance. Once your CCTV has been installed and is protecting and monitoring your family and home, you only need to ensure the cameras are kept clean and check the functionality occasionally.

SPL Ballina Locksmiths has a huge range of different CCTV systems that can be tailored to suit your home and budget.

The SPL Ballina Locksmiths team has been designing, installing and maintaining commercial CCTV systems for almost 3 decades. SPL is a trusted name in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

The presence of CCTV at any type of business premises will be a major deterrent to criminals. CCTV inside a building is also popular in office and retail environments. Indoor surveillance can be beneficial for monitoring employees—from recording patterns among workers and store customers, to monitoring for crime. It can also come in handy to settle disputes with an employee, as CCTV footage can be referred to as evidence.

Unquestionably, one of the most important benefits of installing a 24-hour surveillance system is that it can protect your retail store from losses. If you run a business where theft during opening hours is a problem, e.g. in a retail outlet, there’s a strong chance theft once your business is closed will also be a cause for concern.

Today, many businesses have an investment in technological infrastructures—hardware and often, customised software—with data that cannot afford to be lost. If this infrastructure were to be compromised, downtime and damage to the company could be significant.

An appropriate security system would offer protection against this happening, providing a powerful visual deterrent. And, in the unfortunate event of it occurring, the CCTV evidence can be used to help track down the criminal.

SPL Ballina Locksmiths has an extensive choice of high-definition CCTV security systems including:

Dark Fighter Technology Cameras
These high-definition cameras record images in very low light conditions. They are the ideal night time security surveillance cameras. They are equipped with 12mm CMOS progressive-scan sensors that can record quality coloured images without the need for added light sources. They also offer optimal performance in daylight.

ANPR/LPR Cameras
ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) and LPR (Licence Plate Recognition) cameras are used to read data on car registration plates. They are an excellent solution for many businesses, including hotels and car parks.

Internal & External Dome Cameras
Dome cameras are commonly used for security and surveillance. They have vandal-resistant features and the shape of the camera deters criminals by creating uncertainty as to which way the lens is angled. They are also easy to install.

Bullet Cameras
Bullet cameras are cylindrical and are particularly effective when long-distance viewing is required. They are installed within a protective casing, shielding the camera from the elements as well as dust and dirt, making them popular for outdoor use. They can be easily installed with a mounting bracket and come fitted with either fixed or vari-focal lenses.

C-mount Cameras
Thanks to detachable lenses, C-mount cameras can cover distances beyond 12 metres, which is greater than the distance covered by a standard CCTV lens.

Day/Night Cameras
With an ability to record in black and white, as well as colour, these cameras come with extra-sensitive imaging chips that are capable of operating in both normal and poorly lit environments. They have infrared capabilities and are popular for outdoor use.

PTZ Pan Tilt & Zoom Cameras
With a 36x optical zoom and high-quality image resolution, PTZ cameras can be moved left or right (panning), up and down (tilting), and zoomed in for closer focus. They are commonly used by businesses that have personnel monitoring the site via security equipment.

Thermal Image/Infrared Cameras
Favoured by airports and other businesses with critical infrastructures, these are some of the best surveillance cameras on the market. Infrared cameras have superior quality imagery and lenses surrounded by LEDs, enabling the ability to pick up moving figures even in the dark. They can also see long distance and can detect intruders up to 300 metres away.

Network Cameras
Network cameras are used to share their imagery across the internet. You can view your CCTV footage from virtually anywhere whereas, without that internet capability you’d need to be at the premises. They are easy to install and ideal in the home.

Remote monitoring helps reduce false alarms, improves security, and saves on the cost of employing security guards.
