Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) systems use video cameras to capture video which is transmitted and viewed on a monitor, thus achieving video surveillance. 

CCTV Surveillance Systems are one of the most powerful security tools that a business can own and with the technology available today, this essential tool can protect people, property and information in any type of location - large or small, from a single office to an entire city. It is thus a useful tool in tracking crimes and monitoring movement in public places, private companies and homes. 

GATA Engineering services offers a range of services in this field; from a free site survey to the installation and maintenance of already installed systems. 

Types of CCTV systems offered by GATA Engineering Services

  1. High Definition (HD) CCTV System 

These provide the ability to view High Definition (HD) CCTV recordings over an IP based local or wide area network. All recordings and analytics (real-time analysis of video for immediate detection and action of events of interest) can hence be reviewed remotely at any point should you desire.

HD CCTV systems allow you to monitor and review specific times, events, alarms and/or actions as well as control your camera orientation - for systems using Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) cameras. 


-         Virtually unlimited storage capabilities can be achieved

-         Easy to view, playback and archive recordings on to external media

-         Maintain HD quality during playback mode unlike analogue systems


-         Store as many recordings from as many cameras as you want

-         Easily search through vast amounts of HD footage in seconds

-         HD image quality that won’t degrade over time

 -    Capable of remote access to your CCTV system (view and manage your CCTV system through a tablet or smart phone).

Internet Protocol (IP) Camera System

An Internet protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analogue closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet. It is the network that needs to be used in order for a HD CCTV system to be active.


·         Uses HD cameras for recording 

·         superior image quality

·         Easy to set up

·         Scalability and future proofing

·         Cost-effective solution

·         Video analytics capability and other functionality

Hybrid CCTV systems are perfect for anyone looking to future proof their CCTV solution. Hybrid gives you the ability to record in both analogue and in HD whilst slowly migrating over to a full HD CCTV solution as your budget allows.

Hybrid CCTV systems combine analogue and IP (HD) cameras and record both to a Network Video Recorder (NVR). 


·         Record both HD and analogue cameras onto same NVR

·         Scalability and future proofing

·         Cost effective solution

·         Video analytics capability and other functionality

·         External remote monitoring capabilities


·         Easy migration path to HD from analogue

·         Easily build on existing CCTV system

·         Add as many cameras as you wish with a solution ready for future proof CCTV developments

·         Add cameras as and when your budgets require (scalability)

·         Can be remotely monitored to respond to any alarms on site

Remote CCTV Monitoring

With the changes in high speed internet, you can monitor your surveillance anywhere any time at your convenience in a remote monitoring setting via a device with internet connectivity.

Remote CCTV monitoring is a service designed to closely monitor and action any emergency services response where necessary. It offers you the peace of mind that your premises are fully protected during your out of operation hours and is a truly viable alternative to onsite manned guards.

·         Remote control of moveable cameras

·         Audio warning via an external audio system

·         Training on how to operate the system remotely

·         Bespoke design and integration capabilities with Intruder, Fire, Access Control


·         Deterrent to reducing and preventing crime

·         As good as having a manned security guard on site

·         Track every move of the potential intruder

·         Online portal to see what actions were taken by the external monitoring station

·         Communicate over public address speakers to deter the intruder

·         Integration capabilities to streamline alongside other building services



Prevention saves you money in the long run. A poorly maintained system becomes inefficient very quickly and could lead to unnecessary costs over time.

Most insurance companies require proof that routine maintenance is carried out by an approved company. We strongly recommend that you look after your investment, your safety and security with one of our plans.

A range of maintenance contracts are designed to meet the individual requirements of our clients. Included as standard in all contracts is one preventative maintenance activity per year. With regards to the small prints, please note that a number of situations can potentially attract a call-out charge, for example where the system has been vandalised.
