With a lot of crime happening under the cover of darkness, IR (infrared)/ Night-Vision CCTV is essential. IR cameras help you see in the dark when you can't. They have the ability to see in low, and no light (0 Lux). Infrared cameras have IR LEDs positioned around the outer edges of the camera lens which gives the camera its "Night Vision".
Infrared Cameras can capture acceptable video in total darkness and even better quality video in low light. Even a small amount of ambient light helps the overall night vision capability of IR cameras a lot. This can be in the form of nearby street lighting or even motion sensor lights. This should however be discussed during a site survey prior to installation.
Choosing the right quality camera can be a minefield for anyone who is unsure about CCTV equipment. Smart Connect are happy to come out and visit you on site to discuss your requirements. We do however provide the best quality cameras at the best possible price.
Here are a few options to consider when choosing your new CCTV system:
• Distance to the area you're looking to record.
• Are you using it as a deterrent or complete facial recognition?
• How many hours are you looking to record before content is over-written?
IP or Digital (also referred to as Analogue CCTV) - What's the difference, and what's best for me? It's a question that we get asked a lot. Unfortunately we wouldn't be able to give you a definitive answer without viewing your premises first - however here are a few things you should know:
Theres a wide range of CCTV camera styles, the main three categories however are: Dome, Bullet and PTZ.
Dome cameras are generally mounted on a ceiling or side wall mounted for areas such as alleyways. These can be found in vandal-proof variations and the lenses are generally protected by the dome.
Bullet CCTV cameras are your traditional style camera. They're fixed cameras and can be pole-mounted, wall-mounted and can also be ceiling-mounted. They're a versatile camera but can sometimes be prone to vandalism unless positioned up high.
PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras come in different variations however their main function is that the lens and the cameras direction can be moved, focused and monitored from another device such as a computer, monitoring station or mobile device.

This is different for every system. If you are using 4K CCTV with High FPS then you would require a higher storage space.
If you had a small storage space with a system like this, you would find that your footage gets over-written within a couple of days rather than a week.
We would strongly recommend that this is something that is to be discussed prior to installation with one of our trained engineers.
Although this can be true, it is often the result of a poorly conducted survey prior to installation. IP Cameras do require some internet bandwidth to work. If your bandwidth is poor, we would recommend some of the following options prior to installation:
If you're unsure if your internet speeds would be fast enough, don't worry. We can help you every step of the way in finding a system that is perfect for you and that will run smoothly for years to come - Keeping your home or business safe along the way.
Camera resolution is completley dependant on a few things. Firstly, budget should be considered. You should also consider placements of the cameras and how much you will be required to zoom in.
This is something our engineers would discuss with you prior to installation to make sure you have the best suitable system.

I have worked with Smart Connect for just over a year and I have always found them to be helpful, reliable and efficient. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them as their service has always been first class.
Smart Connect have provided us with a first class service for well over a decade. Originally they provided the telephone system only but in the end they took over the management of the telephone lines too as they are so much easier to deal with than the larger more well known companies
Running a 24 hour call centre means a modern, reliable and robust phone system is essential to our business. We switched to Smart Connect back in 2013 and it’s a decision we are very, very happy with! We cannot fault the system they have provided, superb service all round.
