Choosing a CCTV System

Get help choosing a CCTV system from Locked and Secure LtdChoosing a CCTV system can be tricky, and without knowing the industry or the products, some information you find online can be very confusing. That’s why we thought we’d write this blog post to help you understand the main differences between the three different types of CCTV systems we install in and around Bucks, Northants, Beds, Herts and South Lincs.

Analogue CCTV

An Analogue CCTV system is what most people think of when they consider CCTV. Each camera is wired to a recording device on site, and the footage can be viewed either on a TV or a monitor on location. Analogue CCTV systems are perfect for domestic properties and small to medium commercial and industrial premises.


An HD CCTV system is a digital surveillance system that produces high definition (HD) footage. The quality of the footage is improved by 5 to 20 times of an analogue system, so you’ll be able to see much great detail. An additional benefit to HD quality images is that you probably won’t need as many cameras as you would with an analogue system, possibly making it a more cost effective solution. HD CCTV systems are ideal for any location.


An IP CCTV system is a top of the range, state of the art CCTV system that can integrate with your other security measures, such as your access control and intruder alarms. Instead of being wired to a recording device on site, an IP system is connected via a network or over the internet, meaning you can monitor and manage your CCTV system remotely. Because of this, IP CCTV is ideal for businesses with more than one site, wanting to manage and monitor their security in one place. With high quality footage and easy installation, an IP CCTV system is a fantastic choice for ultimate surveillance.
