CCTV For the Home Becoming more and more popular, CCTV for homes is now the next step for many home owners looking for a higher level of security. Using the latest High Definition IP cameras, images from around your property can be watched live on your TV, mobile phone, tablet or computer. Dome or bullet style cameras can be installed neatly at high level and all cables carefully concealed. All our cameras have Infra Red LEDs built in as standard to provide clear night time images, even in the lowest of internal lighting conditions. CCTV For the Business Whether you have a shop, commercial offices, manage a school or industrial premises, A1 Security can provide your business with the latest in CCTV technology. Our systems range from a simple 4 camera system up to 64, or even 128 cameras, and can be either 'fixed cameras' or fully functional 'PTZ type' cameras. As standard we now fit full HD IP cameras, which gives the added benefit that they can be installed over Wi-Fi links of up to 4 miles, making them ideal for remote sites. Our Own Dedicated CCTV Monitoring Control Room Using ‘state of the art’ Analytic monitoring software designed and developed by A1 Security, monitoring your camera system is the ultimate addition in protecting your premises. Our unique Analytic monitoring software can monitor your cameras in several ways, including a revolutionary highly accurate 'by pixel' change or by a person crossing a 'virtual zone' - be it a line or boxed area you create on the screen. When the system detects an intruder, the software provides an audible and visual notification for the operator in our monitoring centre. High powered sirens and strobes are also activated on your site to warn/deter any intruders that they are now being monitored. Should they fail to leave site the Police would then be notified. Unlike other basic systems ours does not rely on old fashioned and inefficient external movement detectors. It streams your cameras live feed directly to our dedicated monitoring centre the entire time. The software can be linked into almost any CCTV system, even if we did not install it originally. We can install towers of 4-8 meters in height that can accommodate 4 to 6 cameras, which is ideal for protecting larger areas and can even focus in to read vehicle number plates. Fully digital, networked HD recorders provide high quality recorded images and are stored for a minimum of 30 days, however this can be greatly increased depending on your requirements. Infra Red LEDs are integrated in the body of our cameras to provide clear low light and night time images, and additional stand alone IR lamps can be fitted to illuminate larger areas if required. Remote access to your system is easily obtained via APPs on your mobile phone or tablet. We also offer a full monitoring service if required. 4 High Definition cameras are mounted on a telescopic mast that can extend up to 9 metres, giving you a 360-degree view of your site or location. VisionEyeTM: Rapid Deployment CCTV Live images from VisionEyeTM are streamed back to our dedicated control room via a 2/3/4g roaming network, or via satellite if necessary. Recorded HD images are stored on the unit and also on a server in our control room at the same time. High powered LED lights and audible sirens are remotely activated by our control room operators if the system detects any intruders, and the Police are notified if intruders fail to leave the premises or area. ‘VisionEyeTM’ is an award winning ‘off grid’ rapid deployment CCTV system like no other. Designed by A1 Security, the trailer mounted CCTV system is totally self-powered by batteries, which in turn are charged by a wind turbine and solar panels for complete 'stand alone' solution for use in remote 'un-powered' locations. All clients are provided with an APP to enable live images to be viewed remotely by mobile phone or tablet. The VisionEyeTM trailer mounted CCTV system once delivered to site, can be set up and be operational in under 1 hour and requires no mains power or telephone lines. VisionEyeTM is currently the only one of its type available in the UK. TM Intruder Alarms With crime on the increase it has never been more important to protect your family and premises.

Commercial Intruder Alarms A1 Security can supply and install you with the latest security systems. From initial survey and system design right through to installation we ensure each system meets our high standards. Intruder Alarms can be hard-wired, wire-free or a mix of both giving you many options to protect any size of premises. Combinations of movement detectors, door contacts and beams are used to detect intruders, and setting and un-setting of the system is simply done via an LCD keypad or a ‘prox tag’. Each individual using the system is assigned a unique tag or code. This allows the company owner to have full control over who is using and accessing the protected building or area(s), which is particularly useful when a record of who and when the alarm was set/unset is required. Any of our Intruder Alarm systems can be monitored, this can be as simple as receiving a text message when the system is activated right though to being monitored by our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). BT Redcare or CSL Dual Com are a common choice when connecting your system to an ARC. In the event of your system being activated the ARC will call a nominated keyholder, if a confirmed signal is received the Police will also be called. As part of our commitment to meet the high standards of our approval it is highly recommended that your Alarm System is maintained and serviced regularly, this is carried out once a year for audible systems and every 6 months for monitored systems All installations fully comply with BS4737, DD843, BS EN 50131 & PD 6662:2010 standards and all new systems are grade 2 or 3 depending on insurers requirements We are a Which?
