Choosing the right CCTV company
According to a recent YouGov survey, 81 per cent of people think CCTV is a positive tool in the fight against crime. Furthermore, research from the University of Leicester has found that CCTV is the best deterrent to pre-planned crime and has reduced offences of burglary in various areas of the country.
But while the decision to have CCTV at your domestic property or place of business is easy, choosing the right company to carry out this duty can be a lot more difficult. So, here are a few reasons why you should consider Innovate Security to design, install, and maintain your CCTV solution.
Seeing as the presence of CCTV and the footage it records can potentially catch criminals in the act and be used as evidence by the authorities, reliability is of the utmost importance. Therefore, you will want to choose a company that knows what it is doing when installing and maintaining a CCTV system.
We were formed in 2008 by Company Director Mark Harris, who has over 15 years “hands-on” experience in the electronic security industry. This means there isn’t much we don’t know about CCTV. Since our inception, Innovate Security has witnessed year-on-year growth, thanks in large part to return and referral customers.
Unfortunately we live in a world where some unscrupulous people try to take advantage of others by making money via any means possible. For example, so-called ‘cowboy builders’ are known to carry out poor quality trade work for homes and businesses before leaving town without a trace. So, to avoid this worst-case scenario, it is a good idea to look for CCTV companies with a renowned reputation.
Innovate Security can proudly state that we are the only 5-star rated Trust a Trader security system installer operating in the southeast of England. On top of that, we hold numerous manufacturer accreditations, not just for CCTV but also electric gates and access control systems.
The complex and complicated nature of CCTV means that only qualified professionals are capable of installation and maintenance. Furthermore, working with electricity and at height can be dangerous, which requires both professionalism and proficiency.
But here at Innovate Security, our engineers hold some of the highest qualifications and certifications in the industry, such as CISCO CCNA networking certifications, City and Guilds 17th edition electrical wiring qualification, and BTEC HNC in electrical/electronic engineering. They are also fully certified by IPAF to operate all manner of machinery including cherry pickers and scissor lifts.
Any CCTV company worth its salt will be more than happy to provide you with positive customer feedback. After all, word of mouth remains extremely influential and unlike other marketing methods, is often out of a company’s control.
Innovate Security has gone one step further than most CCTV companies by displaying customer testimonials on our website for all to see. We are in this business for our clients and find no greater satisfaction than giving them the security expertise they require.
