The security of your premises is no joke – closed circuit television (or CCTV) is a popular system used by many Melbourne businesses. It allows you to monitor all the comings and goings in your premises when you’re not able to physically keep an eye on it yourself.
CCTV installation will provide your business with a number of benefits, from records of any vandalism or robberies that occur to discounts on your insurance premiums. They can also deter opportunistic thieves who spot them and be used to monitor areas that are unsafe for people to enter (such as chemical plants).
Smillie Electrical Services can help you to select a CCTV system that best meets your needs, as well as install it. We can also handle maintenance and repairs should your system begin experiencing issues.
CCTV is such powerful technology, that it would be a waste to use solely for security monitoring.

Note: It is vital that you follow regulations such as having a sign alerting others that CCTV is in use. Contact us for more information.
Any commercial buying decision is one that needs to be heavily considered. CCTVs are no exception. This is an investment that you’re making for your business and is one that will pay for itself many times over in the coming years.
But it can be difficult to choose the right CCTV. Especially when security isn’t your specialty.
So here are some considerations to help you make the right choice:
Location and placement
Additional features such as water, heat, and dust resistance can increase costs significantly (especially when you’re buying multiple CCTVs to cover a wide area). Take into consideration the location you intend for them to be placed and use this to determine what features are essential.
Purpose and goals
Depending on your goals, you’ll need to make a decision between several features. For example, an audio integrated machine will be necessary if you need to hear what is being said. A high definition camera will be required if you want to be able to zoom in and make identifications.
Still not sure what CCTV you need? At Smillie Electrical Services, our team of experts will inspect your area and take your needs into consideration to help you choose the right CCTV system.
