Clearway’s highly skilled team design, install and maintain our range of commercial CCTV systems, utilising the latest advanced technologies including fully functional high definition IP cameras and IP infra-red thermal imaging technology, enabling sites of all sizes to be remotely monitored 24/7 by our state of the art NSI Gold accredited Alarm Receiving Centre.
Our comprehensive range of advanced CCTV surveillance systems can work in isolation or as part of an integrated security solution, protecting property, people and assets from the risk of theft and fire across all sectors, from single sites to the most complex multi-site operations.
Clearway inView CCTV Towers are a unique development from Clearway’s stable of innovations and run on mains or solar power; have wide coverage and provide a highly visible deterrent factor. With connection to multiple remote sensors placed around sites of almost any size, they will detect movement and instruct the mast-mounted camera to rotate, zoom, focus and live-record the event. Complete with audio challenge informing the intruder that they are now being monitored live.
Often, a client requires increased security for a vacant property or temporary site – which is exposed to illegal entry when not guarded. There are multiple reasons criminals might target these locations and the impact can be extensive in terms of downtime, the costs of repairs, managing insurance claims, and the stress and working hours required to recover from a security breach.
In many cases, our clients utilise a new locality on a short-term basis and want to offer their personnel the same level of protection, as they would expect on a permanent site. In these instances, temporary CCTV is an excellent solution for keeping your premises secure despite the challenging environment. However, it can be used by businesses of all kinds who appreciate the flexibility that temporary CCTV provides.
Temporary CCTV systems are commonly for shorter-term use. They are either battery or solar-powered and are motion activated. Because of their flexibility, they are often used for events such as festivals, or in construction sites and remote working environments, where reliable access to power is limited or not possible.
In any circumstance, the Clearway team is on hand with a range of temporary security measures to protect your premises for whatever period.
CCTV plays a key role in keeping customers, employees and physical premises safe. The presence of a well set up, visible camera system can deter criminals before they even consider a break-in or theft. They give the people in and around your premises a sense of security. If something does go wrong, there will be a record of what happens.
Professional fixed CCTV cameras and wired CCTV systems are an ideal way of keeping your property protected continuously. No matter if you want to prevent unauthorised access and trespassing, vandalism, theft or any other illegal activity, fixed CCTV systems help ensure your organisation is protected from day one.
Whether you want to prevent unauthorised entry and trespassing, squatting or fly-tipping, or just maintaining tight control over who accesses and enters your properties, high quality, reliable CCTV monitoring is a proven method of keeping your property or land continually secure and can be combined with other security measures and visual deterrents.
Without routine, preventative maintenance, your CCTV system is far more likely to develop faults or, worse still, fail completely. If CCTV monitors are not manned you may even be unaware a problem exists until the time evidence is required from the cameras.
If you’re aware the CCTV system is not functioning correctly you’re left to rely solely on the visual deterrent effect of CCTV but, without being able to access or use crucial CCTV footage when you need it as evidence.
Clearway offer a cost effective solution to upgrade your current business CCTV system at your pace, reflecting the challenges of improving how you protect your site without compromising on security and safety. We understand the investment you have made in your site security and we can extend and maintain existing commercial CCTV systems if you are keen to extend its life. Alternatively, we can provide a modular solution to upgrade your system, focusing on the areas that would benefit most from higher resolution images.
Bullet CCTV cameras are called so because of their long, cylindrical shape. These are often used where long-distance viewing is required, or in fixed locations, as they don’t typically come with a pan/tilt/zoom option. They can be wall or ceiling mounted and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Protective casings are also available to make the camera waterproof and to protect the camera lens from dust and dirt in environments where these conditions are likely to inhibit clear vision.
Whether hardwired or wireless, these cameras transmit images over the internet, often compressing the bandwidth to reduce server network strain. Footage is often stored on network video recorders (NVRs) or accessed via secure software. IP cameras don’t require a separate cable to send images over longer distances so are easier to install.
C-mount CCTV cameras have detachable lenses which means they can be configured to fit different applications. Standard CCTV camera lenses can typically only cover distances of between 35 and 40ft. However, a C-mount CCTV camera can cover distances greater than 40ft by installing special lenses.
Wireless cameras are exactly that – wireless. They allow greater flexibility in location and are much quicker and easier to install. They’re suited to most environments, but locations such as stately homes, museums, and churches, where the presence of wires would be unsightly.
PTZ cameras allow the camera to have free range of pivotal movement, panning and tilting, with optical zoom. These cameras are used in situations where there is an operator sitting in a control room who is manually operating and monitoring on-site security systems from a remote location.
Dome CCTV cameras are one of the most common types of camera. Suitable for use both indoor and outdoor applications. Named because of the dome-shaped housing within which the camera is mounted, these are ideal for deterring crime as it is not easy for intruders to see which way the camera is facing and try to evade detection.
Speed dome cameras are also available. These cameras allow an operator to pan/tilt/zoom and spin quickly, giving them a greater ability to focus on specific events.
Day/night CCTV cameras are able to capture clear video images in varying light conditions and in the dark. The day/night camera is most suited to outdoor applications, and can function with glare, direct sunlight, reflections and strong backlight.
Night-vision CCTV cameras can see images in pitch black conditions using infrared LEDs. They are best suited to outdoor environments where the lighting is poor to zero.
Thermal cameras deliver images of objects emitting heat that the naked eye or conventional HD cameras might not see, such as intruders trying to hide behind foliage or obstructions. Faulty machinery, corroded electrics, and damaged components will often display abnormal temperatures prior to complete failure. The use of thermal cameras can help to detect these early signs and reduce fire risk.
Throughout the pandemic, Clearway has continued to provide its full range of CCTV installation services, as it’s an essential security service for properties. Many businesses are closed temporarily due to government restrictions and so are in need of additional security to ensure that valuable assets are protected and that they can get up and running again efficiently when the lockdown restrictions are lifted.
Clearway provides commercial CCTV installation, both short and long term. We provide fixed CCTV cameras that connect to the mains power for longer term solutions as well as solar powered / battery operated systems for short term surveillance and security. The latter, in particular, is a great option for vacant properties or construction sites in which short to medium term CCTV protection is required.
Our surveillance professionals will monitor your site 24/7 and in the event of a breach we would respond immediately and in accordance with a predefined set of actions. We will agree to these actions at the start of our agreement to ensure that each type of breach is dealt with as quickly and effectively as possible.
There are a number of essential considerations and rules around the usage of CCTV that you need to be aware of. From making sure staff and the public are fully informed about the usage of cameras (data protection) to storing the feeds and footage (GDPR), companies must uphold the law. We’ve created an article on the rules of CCTV for businesses and will also advise you on compliance if you choose to work with us. Read more about legal requirements of CCTV here.
At our CCTV monitoring station, all formats of the data (including video footage) is stored in accordance with the GDPR. The GDPR harmonises data protection across Europe and ensures that all of your data is kept safe. For additional details, discuss this with our sales advisors, or read our website terms and conditions.
For a number of our products, we have PDF downloads which detail our products more specifically, however, our advisors will be able to provide a full specification of each of our camera products if necessary.
