Lo-res security camera systems

Components of a typical DVR security camera system

This page gives you some idea of what goes into our analog security camera systems. It's not our entire range.

For example we also do PTZ cameras (pan-tilt zoom), and more high spec cameras for specific uses such as license plate recognition.

As with all analog systems you're restricted to low resolutions but they are a much lower investment than the high resolution IP video surveillance systems described elsewhere on this site.

Cheap and cheerful 4 Camera DIY Kit

In fact if you're on a tight budget get hold of one of these kits.

They might be a starting point before migrating to the more capable systems later - that'll be your call.

Right now, if it's anything to do with security cameras in Auckland, it'll probably pay you to get in touch with us.

Also if your system is giving you problems check out this page about common CCTV issues.

While you're at it why not check out some of our interesting installations of CCTV Auckland wide.
