From affordable Small Business solutions to large scale HD IP Camera Applications for Public Sector and Industry.
We possess the multi-disciplinary skills required to deliver the implementation of a network-based video system smoothly and successfully.
We have the experience to combine the various technologies involved and make them work reliably as one total solution. There are a lot of different products, platforms and technologies to consider when designing an IP CCTV system. Over the years we have learned what works well and what does not. We give you the benefit of our knowledge.
By installing a Home Security CCTV System, we can help you to protect your family and home from undesirable visitors.
Installing CCTV cameras in and around your property will help to deter any persons that are unwanted by the cameras very presence alone. Your CCTV home security system can also be connected into your home multiroom system, allowing you to view and watch from any television in your home, each individual CCTV camera installed.

Remote CCTV Access - Control your cameras, view live and recorded CCTV images at any time and from wherever you are, via PC, laptop or mobile. Central Control Room - Monitoring a large number of remote sites from one central location offers a huge cost saving potential. Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) - Let a professional CCTV Monitoring Station do the monitoring for you
The most important aspect of any camera security system is the quality of the video images it produces. To deliver optimum image quality, you need to understand all technologies involved from image capture at the camera end, transmission via IP networks and delivery of the image on a viewing monitor or recording device for later playback.
In practice this means assessing light levels, selecting the right camera, the right lens, the right monitor and choosing the correct compression method, recording platform and camera settings etc. HD resolution cameras, Megapixel technology and H.264 compression allows for high quality CCTV at lower bit rates. At Network Webcams we have learned to understand the complexities of IP CCTV over the years. As a result, we know how to deliver the best image quality possible.
For CCTV recording, we offer server based solutions such as Milestone open platform software as well as manufacturer proprietory software solutions. We also provide recording solutions to Mac users. Software based recording and management systems can be designed with future expansion in mind, whether this is an addition of cameras, an increase in sites or additional storage capacity. Expansion is virtually limitless.
Box solutions include Network Video Recorders (NVRs), Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) with network capability or hybrid machines accepting both analogue and Ethernet inputs. NVR based solutions often offer the same scalability as software based recording solutions.
It is important to recognise the development of the ONVIF standard (arguably the most mature of the competing standards) within IP video and CCTV. Initiated by Axis, Sony and Bosch, the ONVIF standard will ensure interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. In practice this will mean that any ONVIF compatible camera will work with any ONVIF compatible recording software or device.
We also offer MVAAS (Managed Video as a Service) solutions for the off-site recording and management of CCTV images. With the MVAAS model, the video recording and management software is hosted as a service and accessible to users via the Internet. MVAAS solutions eliminate the requirement to install or run software on your own computers.
Intelligent Video Analytics takes networked-based CCTV a step forward from conventional CCTV. With Intelligent Video you can detect alarm situations automatically. You no longer need to rely solely on CCTV operators or install expensive PIR detection equipment. IP CCTV systems are able to alert you and others simultaneously via on-screen pop-up messages, e-mail or text. At the same time they can trigger local noise alarms or play pre-recorded messages.
Examples of common Intelligent Video implementations:
Existing conventional CCTV systems can be migrated to IP-based systems by means of encoders or hybrid recording platforms. We can protect your existing investment in CCTV by utilising existing cameras and cable infrastructures, whilst future-proofing your new investments with a staged migration to IP-based CCTV.
