SPL Ballina Locksmiths CCTV solutions watch your home or business when you can’t. We have an extensive range of high definition digital video, video surveillance cameras and IP surveillance systems available to suit any home and business budget.

CCTV stands for Closed Circuit Television. It is a video surveillance system where images of people are recorded and monitored 24 hours per day through a mounted and unmanned camera, predominately for security and surveillance purposes. CCTV is designed to help prevent and detect crime.

CCTV 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 can dramatically increase the security of your home as they are a huge visual crime deterrent to criminals. Thieves are much less likely to target your property if they know their every movement is being recorded on camera!

CCTV can be positioned around the outside of your property to cover blind spots that cannot be seen when looking out of the window. If you hear an unusual noise coming from outdoors, you can monitor the perimeter of your property without having to leave your house. It also provides peace of mind and added safety if you receive a visitor after dark as you can check your camera 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 of the main benefits of CCTV over many other types of electronic security systems is that they require very little maintenance. Once your CCTV has been installed and is protecting and monitoring your family and home, you just need to ensure cameras are kept clean and that a regular maintenance check is performed to ensure functionality.

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

SPL have been designing, installing and maintaining commercial CCTV systems for almost 3 decades and are a trusted name in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

It goes without saying that having a CCTV installed on the inside or outside of any type of business premises will act as a major deterrent to criminals. The presence of CCTV inside of a building is also particularly beneficial for monitoring employees and is popular in office and retail environments. From recording working patterns, movement and internal crime, indoor surveillance is becoming increasingly popular. It is also a good way to settle disputes with an employee as CCTV footage can be referred to as evidence.

If you run a business where theft during opening hours is a common problem i.e in a retail outlet, the chances are theft once your business is closed will also be a major cause for concern. Unquestionably, one of the most important benefits of installing a 24 hour surveillance system is that it can prevent your retail store from losses.

Today, many businesses run on technological infrastructures containing information that cannot be replaced, including complex servers and hardware. If any of this information was to go missing it could cause huge problems for the company, hence, why it is so important to keep watch on intruders and thieves to prevent this from happening.

In the unfortunate event of a crime taking place at your business premises, having CCTV evidence is crucial in helping authorities to find the criminal.
