Frequently asked questions
Can i view my CCTV from anywhere?
Modern CCTV systems are connected online allowing customers the ability to view there cameras right on the phone or tablet. In fact we fit more systems for customers that only want to view from there online devices than they do on a monitor or tv.
How many cameras do I need?
This is usally down to what you want the cameras to cover! If you just want to monitor your driveway then one is fine, but if you want to view around your property then you will need to consider a minimum of 4.
How long do the recorders record for?
Good question... The answer is usually we aim for the recorders to record 30 days worth day & night. This can be extended with larger hard drives or if you would prefer motion only recording, but to cover all bases we fit a hard drive big enough to record no stop for 30 days.
Which areas do you cover?
We cover the whole of Lincolnshire, Yorkshire & Nottinghamshire. So any town, village or city we cover for both installs and servicing.
I am looking at an Intruder Alarm System, Wireless or Wired?
Well this is a little complicated and depending on your property. If you own a bungalow and the loft is accessable then we would suggest a wired system, as long as any sensors you require are within the bungalow.
Are wireless alarms any good?
Yes!! The short answer is they work just as well as wired and in many ways better!
Will the alarm be able to connect to my phone?
Yes if you require it, an app is available for all our alarms systems and we can get you connected. On the app you can arm/un-arm, view log history, turn zones on/off and get notifications as activations happen. So if your alarm goes off then you will be notified anywhere.... as long as your phone isnt on silent or turned off ;)
Do you service alarms you have not installed?
Yes of course! We are able to service any alarm system you have installed whether we have fitted on not. This happens often on moving in to a property and not sure of the history. We come out and give the system a good look over, replace batteries if needed, check wiring, check sensors, check the outside bellbox as well as test that the alarm if functioning as it should.
