Frequently Asked Questions When Customers Call:

  • Does it record 24/7 or Motion Detection?

    Thats up to you. The Video recorders can do 24/7 recording or motion detection only. Please note that you will get a lot more out of your hard drive space if you set it at motion detection recording only.

    The digital video is saved to your DVR or NVR, backed up to an external hard drive and rewritten from the front after the hard drive is full.

  • How does the CCTV System all work?

    The Assepotentialcctvplacementsssment Process

    1. When our technicians arrive at your home on the day of the installation, they will firstly speak to you and confirm with you the ideal positions of the cameras considering the unique dangers / threats to your home. They will explain how they will do the installation and ask you where the router is and where you would like the video recorder to go. If you’re not sure, they will guide you through the process. NOTE – If you’re not sure how many cameras you need, simply let us know and we’ll bring up to 8 cameras for you. Our pricing structure is highly transparent so you know how much it will cost before installation begins.



    The Installation Process

    2. The installer/s will then run the cables required within the roof cavity of your home from the location of the video recorder to the desired locations of the cameras.  The video recorder is the rectangle box which contains a hard drive. It is usually placed in an obscure /  hidden location like a linen closet or a walk in wardrobe. All cabling will be neatly run. If its a home with a roof cavity, you should not expect to see much or any cabling/ conduit at all.

    3. The video recorder is then connected to the monitor (supplied) which sits in the same location as the Video recorder. This monitor will allow you to view / review information that has been recorded and change settings. A mouse will be provided to allow you to control the device.

    4. The Video Recorder is then connected to your internet modem / router. This is required to allow remote viewing. If its a single storey home, we will likely run a new cable from the video recorder to the modem. If its a double storey home, we may use a powerline adapter to extend the internet connection to the location of the video recorder.

    The Configuration process

    cctv-ipad-iphone5. The installer will then configure the system and set it up on your iphones / android phones and any tablets you’d like. You will be able to remotely view the footage from the CCTV cameras remotely via these devices. Please ask them to show you how to set it up so when you have new devices you’ll know how to do it yourself.

    6. The video recorder has the ability to record on both 24/7 recording or motion detection recording. Most people request that it be set it at motion detection recording. This enables more data to be recorded. A typical system will record 7 days on 24/7 recording or around 2-3 weeks on motion detection. If you need more storage, let us know and we can offer an upgrade to you. The video recorder is maintenance free. Once the hard drive is full, it will simply rewrite over itself from the front.

    The process is quite straightforward and our installer will assist you the entire way through. Any further questions, please call us on 9028 8168.



  • What is the difference between Analog / IP Cameras
    • Analog: a standard wired color security camera. Most wired security cameras today are indoor/outdoor and have an infrared cut-filter for night vision. Wired cameras will require video extension cables. Analog cameras are in general lower in resolution than IP / Network cameras.
    • IP / network: IP (Internet protocol), or network cameras are another option. IP cameras are digital and in general allow for higher resolutions.
    • Both types of cameras have night vision capability and can be streamed across the internet to most devices.
  • What is the difference between the Analog and the Full HD IP systems?


    In general, analog CCTV systems are grainy and are difficult to identify people / objects.

    720P / 1080P systems (the ones we use) are much better than the analog quality systems. Please click the sample videos under each package to have a better idea as to how clear each system is.


  • Do your cameras have night vision mode?

    Yes, all of our cameras have night vision mode. The camera handles low light situations with black and white imaging.

    Below is a sample video of a 720p camera system during the night.

    Below is a sample video of 1080p camera at night.

  • How long does it take to install CCTV?

    It takes between 4 hours to 1.5 days to install depending on how many cameras you’ve ordered as well as the size of your building.

    A typical 4 camera system for a single storey should take around 4-6 hours. It should take roughly the same amount of time for a standard office.

  • Are all your prices inclusive of GST and installation?

    Yes, indeed they are. We believe in simple, straightforward pricing

  • What Warranty do you offer?

    All our Bosch alarm systems we use come with a 2 year Parts & Labour Warranty, CCTV with a 2 year Warranty. Intercom systems come with a 1 year warranty.

    If you have any issues, let us know and we will come out and sort it out!

  • What do you need to enable Remote Viewing for CCTV?

    Whether you’re at home, at work, overseas or just doing the shopping, you can keep an eye on your home. All from your IOS or ANDROID mobile phone.

    You will need:
    > cabled internet in your home (adsl or cable)
    > internet on your mobile device

    You can view you cameras and even zoom in to the video, live. We set it all up for you; all you have to do is open the app

* Note – all pricing on website may be subject to an on site inspection. If your home doesn’t have eaves, doesn’t have a roof cavity that covers the area of cabling required, has an extension which doesn’t share the same roof space as your main house or you require the camera away from your main roof space or if the cabling requires conduit work, then these features may change the installation costs of the system. If you have booked in an install and are not sure about this, the technician will advise you on the day. You will not be forced to proceed with the install if you are not happy with the price.

CCTV Installations

Can I do it myself? In theory, yes, but practically, this may be dangerous or rather, users have to bare a certain level of risk.

While Do-It-Yourself definitely comes with an affordable price, it is still recommended to consult or hire professional, since there are so many details that one need to pay attention to.   Nevertheless, if installing on your own is unavoidable, here are some […]
