Catch them if they do get in
Our professional business CCTV systems use state-of-the-art technology to monitor your property, people and operation 24-hours a day.
Why use CCTV?
At Clarus systems, we are able to provide greater performance, capability and flexibility from a diverse range of digitally-enhanced equipment. This technology enables higher resolution recognition using High Definition cameras, and intelligent retrieval processes. These systems typically provide:
- Crime prevention
- Clear images, day and night
- Audible warnings to deter intruders
- Automatic connection to a remote video receiving centre
- Access to your business CCTV from anywhere
CCTV cameras were once known for producing grainy, out-of-focus images that were no good to anyone. This allowed criminals to go about their business as usual, all the while appearing as unidentifiable images even when they were caught on camera.
That was then. Today, we have HD cameras, infrared capabilities, and the chance to see accurate and sharp images even in the dead of night at up to 30 metres from the camera.
When you invest in technology like this, you can be assured of benefiting from smart protection against burglary, anti-social behaviour and vandalism.
Integrated solutions mean that even when you’re not at your premises, you can check your cameras via your smartphone or other internet-enabled devices. That means you’ll always know what is going on – even if you’re abroad.
And you’ll also feel safer when you and your staff are at your premises, with integrated CCTV solutions giving you comprehensive coverage of what is happening around your business, and who is coming and going.
Types of CCTV available
IP Network CCTV solutions
These solutions operate on normal and existing network cables, rather than needing specialist cables wired in from scratch. Clarus Systems is also able to specify and install cabling where none exists, including specialist Fibre cabling to cater for large facilities needing extended high-speed connectivity.
Thermal Imaging Cameras
Thermal imaging cameras provide much longer range and accuracy than standard infra-red night-time cameras, and are especially suited to facilities that need higher grade security.
These cameras offer unique benefits for outdoor use in particular, where challenging conditions are present, giving superior results in:
- Low light scenarios
- Areas where there might be smoke, fog and dust
- Areas where there is camouflaging foliage
- Giving fewer false alarms
Cabled CCTV Solutions
Clarus Systems installs specialist cabling if needed, and we are qualified to install Fibre cables for larger facilities, for example military bases, hospitals, universities, power plants etc.
We also have a range of other CCTV options available.

Frequently asked questions:
How do I know CCTV is right for my business?
If you need monitoring on your site 24/7 to protect your staff and premises from theft, vandalism, staff movement monitoring and process monitoring, CCTV is the first step in allowing you to do so.
How much does a CCTV system cost?
CCTV systems are flexible and can be custom-designed to suit both your security needs and your budget. For example, CCTV cameras range in price from about £100 to around £6,000. The governing principle is to understand what you want to achieve with the system and then obtain quotes for one that brings together the right components that make it fit for the purpose you intend.
What is security system integration?
Integration offers the ability to interlink the outputs and control systems at a central monitoring station. This may be at an internal security station or at an external emergency service compliant monitoring station. CCTV supports the following systems by enabling visual verification of alarm activation or access activity.
How do I make sure my use of CCTV is legal?
If you use CCTV, you must abide by the Data Protection Act, and do the following:
- Put up a sign to let people know CCTV is being used and why
- Be able to provide images within 40 days to anyone you’ve recorded (you can charge up to £10 for this)
- Share images with the authorities, eg the police, if they ask for them
- Keep images only as long as your business needs them
