CCTV Buyer's Guide

COAX cable

Part 1: CO–AX Cable

Choosing the right COAX cable for your job is critical as getting it wrong can mean wasted hours of first fixing that needs redoing when the results are sub-standard.

Part 2: PSUs

Powering cameras and recording equipment in the right way is critical to a lasting & quality CCTV installation. Get it wrong and you could waste hours trying to correct voltage drop issues and interference.
LCD Screens

Part 3: Monitors

Unlike TVs in our own homes, the screen we use to view our CCTV on is often almost an afterthought with little attention paid to some of the details that can make a big difference in ease of viewing recorded footage.

Part 4: Wirefree Transmission

Using wirefree technology to transmit video and audio signals from one point to another is a great “get out of jail” card when cabling is difficult or costly perhaps due to a road or some other obstruction.

Part 5: Microphones

In certain situations, the ability to listen to a conversation or altercation is key, it may even provide valuable evidence that will lead to a criminal conviction.
Video Entry

Part 6: Video Door Entry

A basic video entry system that works as a standalone system or can be integrated into an existing CCTV system offers an easy add-on sale.

Part 7: Baluns

Baluns can make use of an existing network structure in a building by using a single CAT5 cable to send 1, 2, 3 or even 4 real-time video signals from one location to another.

Part 8: Covert Cameras

A covert camera can be the ideal solution to catch an unsuspecting culprit when they least expect it.
