Wireless CCTV Systems designed to help protect and secure your home & business, view & record using the small monitor.

A range of Wireless CCTV Systems designed to help protect and secure your home & business, they consist of:

  • 1 - 4 Wireless Cameras (these camera's need to be powered by a plug in transformer, the communication back to the monitor is wireless). Some systems will have a choice of Cameras including External (with night vision) and Internal (with night vision) models.
  • Standard Wireless Colour Monitors (this would be located inside the house and is powered by a plug in transformer, you are able to view the cameras from the monitor, whilst the monitor can be programmed to take & record video clips whenever movement is detected in front of the camera). 
  • Remote Viewing CCTV Monitors: these allow you to connect the Monitor to a Wireless Router, which then allows you Remote Access to view the Cameras using a Smart Phone or Tablet (via a free APP). These Monitors will also have all of the other features found in the standard Monitors such as local viewing, recording, alarms etc.

The operating distance between the Camera's & Monitor is 100 - 300 metre (line of sight) depending on which system is chosen, this wireless range will normally be shortened by 10 to 50% (depending on the nature of the obstructions), but this distance can be increased by adding Booster Aerials or Aerial Extension Cables to the Cameras or Monitors (when possible with the chosen system). 

These Wireless CCTV Systems are ideal for simple DIY Installations !!

Examples of Recording Times on SD cards:

Listed below are some examples of the type of recording times that can be achieved when using SD Cards inside the Monitors, there is the option with some CCTV Monitors to connect to large Hard Drives (which will give you all the storage that you ever need). The figures will vary according to the quality of the images chosen during programming.

Continuous Recording:

  • 2 GB SD Card: up to 4 hours.
  • 4 GB SD Card: up to 8 hours.
  • 8 GB SD Card: up to 16 hours.
  • 16 GB SD Card: up to 32 hours.

Recording by Movement Detection using 30 second clips:

  • 2 GB SD Card: up to 600 Clips.
  • 4 GB SD Card: up to 1200 Clips.
  • 8 GB SD Card: up to 2400 Clips.
  • 16 GB SD Card: up to 4800 Clips.

Night Vision:

We often have customers asking us about how to set up the Cameras for night vision, the general rule of thumb is that if you are more interested in using the Camera at night, you should set up your Camera in the dark, if you are more interested in Day use then set the Camera up during the day, but please find the following advice which may help:

1) Make sure the IR is powerful enough

This is probably the most important thing to keep in mind when comparing night vision cameras, but it can be deceptively tricky to get right. All IR CCTV cameras will have a quoted maximum range, from 5m to 50m and even longer. Remember though, this figure is an absolute maximum range, and image quality will not be ideal at these extremes. We normally recommend measuring how far you need to see, and then adding on a third, so if you want to see 30m, then it’s worth investing in a 40m camera.

2) Make sure the IR is not too powerful

Many people overlook this, but having IR that is too powerful can also be just as bad for the image quality. This is because most CCTV cameras cannot adjust the IR brightness, so a subject standing right next to a camera designed for long ranges will simply look washed out and too bright.

3) Be careful with Wide Angle lenses

IR LEDs are designed to brightly illuminate the centre of the image in order to focus their power. Because of this, the night vision on most CCTV cameras will not have a very wide angle of view. This is not usually a problem, but some cameras will have varifocal lenses that can zoom out. In these cases, just be aware that at the wide end of the zoom, the corners of the image will not be covered by night vision.

4) Make sure the field of view is clear

It’s important that no objects are sticking into the field of view near the camera. This is because most CCTV cameras will try and adjust exposure in order to give the best image. If there is an object like a tree branch or leaves jutting into the frame, this will be very brightly lit by the LEDs (so point #2 above). The camera then makes the image darker to try and compensate. The knock-on effect of this is that the rest of the image then becomes far too dark to see any detail.

5) IR needs something to reflect off of

Much like light from a torch, the light from IR CCTV will not be visible unless it is reflected off of something. Customers sometimes point a camera into an empty field, and are alarmed when there is nothing but darkness in the image. This does not mean the IR is not working however, and a subject will still be visible when they move into range

6) Remember the mounting height

When considering how powerful your night vision needs to be, it’s important to bear in mind the height your cameras will be mounted at. For example, if your car is parked 4m away from your house, and your camera is mounted 3m from the ground, the actual distance from camera to car is 5m. This is especially important to remember when mounting cameras above ground floor height.
