CCTV Installation


CCTV is an abbreviation for closed circuit television, also known as video surveillance. The primary purpose of CCTV is to allow you to monitor any movement at your home or business while you are away using a mobile app that connects directly to your CCTV system. CCTV guards your home or business against intruders. CCTV cameras also provide video evidence in the event of an incident, such as an intruder attempting to enter your home, or for insurance purposes. CCTV comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and the various colours available make the cameras appear hidden by blending into the wall colour. CCTV cameras can be installed on the interior or exterior of your home to keep it safe and secure!

We installed the high-quality Hikvision CCTV system for this lovely home in St Albans at specialist electrical solutions ltd. Once the customer contacted our office, we dispatched an engineer to the property to conduct a site survey. This site survey included deciding where the camera systems should be placed around the home with the resident. Once our engineer had determined where the CCTV would be installed, they needed to figure out how the CCTV would be wired. The engineer then completed an audit, which included images, so that the office staff could prepare a quote for the customer.


Our engineers arrived at the property to install the CCTV cameras after the customer accepted the quote and the CCTV cameras were delivered. Because the house was being renovated, scaffolding was already installed around the entire structure, making it easier for our engineer to install the cameras in the agreed-upon locations. Our engineers began by drilling a small hole to pull wires from in order to connect the CCTV. After drilling the hole, they will attach a CCTV base to the building and then connect the camera to the wires pulled. Once the camera was connected, it was installed on the base that was attached to the building.

After attaching the camera to its base, the engineer had the satisfying task of peeling off the protective plastic. Our engineer also linked the CCTV to the monitor to ensure that all cameras were operational and up to code. The customer had six cameras installed, two on each corner of the house, looking both ways. This is also true for the cameras on the back and side of the house, indicating that CCTV cameras cover all areas. The customer was very pleased with our installation. We can't wait to see the finished product once the renovations are finished!
