Why do I need CCTV?
CCTV can provide evidence for a crime, act as a deterrent, link to relays to control barriers with vehicle recognition systems.

This depends on the type of camera you have and the type of lens on the camera. You need to decide the purpose of the camera and we can tailor the system to you. They will not see like the human eye and need to be focused on an area.
