Car Sales CCTV

Do you have a car showroom or sales forecourt? Is it protected 24/7?

We have found recently car parts are now being stolen to order, this could be wheels, airbags, bumpers absolutely anything on or from the car.

We then also realized how much people really didn’t understand about how much CCTV and monitored systems could protect them and their stock.

CCTV maintenance

Whilst on a recent annual CCTV service visit to one of our customers I took a picture of this camera which was just one of seven. As you can see the camera is covered in a thick layer of dust. It may have only been a small task for us to clean and recheck the focus on the camera but completed on them all it made a huge difference to the recording and viewing quality of the CCTV system. We carry out a number of vital checks on the CCTV system to make sure it complies with EU regulations and also works to the best of its ability, so if you have a simple issue of poor picture quality or a more technical problem give us a call or fill out a contact us form and we will assist you.

Golf Club CCTV

This week we were called out to a Golf Club in Cheshire who had just had £1,200 worth of diesel stolen from their fuel tank.  This is becoming a common type of theft and we are seeing increasing numbers of calls from new and existing customers.

Diesel is held on site by many types of businesses, ranging anywhere from golf  and sports clubs to farms, landscape gardeners, plant hire company’s, haulage contractors plus more.  Remote sites are increasingly being targeted.



Above is a picture of a 2000 litre diesel tank (aprox £1,200 worth) at a Golf Club in Cheshire.

Car Park CCTV

Car Park CCTV

Here’s a the view from our cherry picker whilst installing a PTZ Camera in a car park at Manchester Airport.  The site has had a full new CCTV System installed after a recent break in where thieves cut away a brick wall to gain entry to the onsite office to steal car keys.


Vehicle theft is a rising crime with lucrative rewards for criminals and major head aches for car owners.

For sites such as this where literally 1oo’s of cars are kept whilst holiday makers are abroad their Security Systems have to be ‘top notch’ to stay ahead of the game.

By using the latest in Infra Red day and night vision CCTV Cameras and intelligent recording devices (DVR’s) we have created and a large CCTV System which can be added to over time and has been integrated with the current Alarm System to provide absolute security.

If you would like help with protecting your Business Premises call us on 0161 879 4406 or fill in our contact us form and we’ll get straight back to you.

CCTV DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders)

CCTV DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders)

A CCTV DVR is the brains of any CCTV System.  A good CCTV Company will only install CCTV Equipment from reputable manufacturers with proven performance and durability.

In our opinion, the Videcon VHX DVR is definitely this.  A hit with installers and customers alike, its simple menu’s and easy interface make this one of our favorites.  It has many functions which allow the CCTV owner to navigate around their CCTV System with ease and speed plus play back footage over their PC, Tablet or Mobile in real time.

Maintain Your CCTV Equipment

Maintain Your CCTV Equipment

Not maintaining your CCTV Equipment is like buying a car a never having it MOT’d or serviced.  Over time it becomes old, worn and potentially unfit to perform and do the job you want it to – protect your business.

To maintain your CCTV Equipment it should be serviced at least every 12 months.  A good CCTV Service includes many checks and tweaks to ensure that your CCTV System is working efficient and effectively.  Some of the things involved would be to clean the camera lenses to remove any built up grease and spider webs, etc.  Re focusing the CCTV Camera lenses for best picture quality.  Checking all the communications are working properly.  A really important check is the time and date functions.  If these are not completely correct this will discredit any footage that could otherwise be used as evidence in court.

Below is a picture that was taken by one of our installers whilst on a recent CCTV Install.  The appearance of this camera clearly shows that this CCTV system has not been maintained and is not working correctly.

To a thief this sends a message saying – We don’t take our security very seriously here!

CCTV Installers

CCTV Installers

Are you looking for experienced CCTV Installers with Competitive Prices and Quality Customer Service?

Space CCTV will help you chose the right CCTV System for your Home or Business.  There are several things to think about before you have you choose your CCTV Installers.

  1. Are they experts – do they have a list of happy customers with testimonials and pictures of recent installs.
  2. Are they giving you exactly what you asked for – some companies employ sales staff with little technical knowledge, so when you ask for something a little out of the ordinary their answer is usually ‘computer says no’.  An experienced surveyor / sales person / installer should have years of experience behind them and will pretty much able to design your CCTV System exactly how you want it.
  3. What are you paying for – be clear exactly what you are paying for.  How long is the warranty, what is your service contract, etc.
  4. Is their equipment branded? As the old saying goes – ‘you get what you pay for’.  However, this doesn’t mean that you should be paying top whack it just means that your CCTV Installers should only be using reliable equipment with proper warranties.

Redwall External PIR Sensors

Here is a picture of some Redwall External PIR’s installed by Space CCTV installers from Manchester.  The Redwalls are protected by anti vandal cages.  Their purpose is to detect any intruders once the site is closed.  Once triggered they will tell the Pan Tilt and Zoom camera (PTZ) to move to the appropriate area so the the DVR will record the correct footage and be ready for the monitoring station to watch.  This is a really effective way to catch criminals in the act and once the monitoring station have located the them the police are called.
