Commercial And Domestic CCTV Installers London
The acronym CCTV stands for “closed-circuit television”, and a CCTV system installed at your London home or workplace can have various benefits. It can, for example, deter theft and burglary as well as help households and business owners to gather evidence against anti-social behaviour. We can install bespoke CCTV systems at both domestic and commercial properties anywhere in London.
In a residential setting, CCTV would enable you to monitor your home while you are on your travels, such as on a holiday. Your domestic CCTV system can even include a hidden security camera for keeping an eye on anyone who visits any elderly or dependent relative you have. By using a good-quality CCTV system to protect your home and possessions, you can also lower insurance premiums.
A workplace can, of course, also fall prey to intrusions and thefts. That’s why we would be happy to implement CCTV systems there, too – helping the company to prevent financial losses or costly interruptions. Through our website, you can book a free home visit or site survey, enabling us to visit your property to determine the most fitting CCTV solution for it.

From a computer, phone or tablet, you can easily keep track of what your CCTV system is capturing.
Want to add new cameras or replace the existing ones with newer, more advanced units? We can handle either task for you.
We use tried-and-trusted CCTV technology, so you know you’re getting a best-in-class solution.
Award Winning IP CCTV Camera System Design and Installation
As we design CCTV systems bespoke, we can tailor your CCTV system to ensure it satisfies your needs and requirements. We can integrate this CCTV into an existing security setup or implement a whole smart security system complete with CCTV. The bespoke adaptations we can make include thermal imaging, intelligent video analytics and licence plate recognition.
There are many different types of CCTV camera, including analogue and HD cameras, from which you can choose. However, there are especially compelling reasons for you to opt for IP cameras. These CCTV cameras easily outclass analogue systems and provide better image resolution than HD cameras. In essence, IP CCTV cameras are the most hi-tech CCTV cameras you can get.
IP cameras are also compatible with a wide range of analytical software capable of facial recognition and an array of other useful functions. All of this means IP cameras represent a very flexible option, which also helps to make them the most future-proof CCTV cameras on the market. Once installed at your home or workplace, an IP CCTV camera system can adjust to your changing needs.
Why Choose to Have CCTV Integrated with Your Home Automation System?
- You can watch the outside from the inside
- Your CCTV can let you see who’s knocking at the door
- Similarly, CCTV can be integrated with a smart doorbell
- When it detects movement outside, CCTV can switch on lights there
- CCTV can be programmed to set off a smart alarm
- You can access a live feed of your home’s CCTV at any time
- CCTV can produce high-resolution video footage
- We can upgrade your CCTV and your smart home on the same job
What Are The Features Of Our CCTV Systems?
You can remotely view your CCTV system’s live video feed from anywhere you have internet access.
Once a CCTV system is installed, you can easily add more to it later down the line.
Real Time Playback
By playing back video footage in real time, you can discern especially important details.
Be notified on your smartphone if trespassers are detected by your CCTV system.
This technology detects objects by picking up on infrared radiation emanating from them.
This is useful for automatically distinguishing people you know from those you don’t.
With its ultra high-definition recording capabilities, 4K CCTV can capture images in stunning detail.
ColourVu Vs Night Vision?
There are various boxes a night-time camera should tick: it should be at least 1080p in resolution, have long-range night vision reaching at least 10m away and be weatherproof. However, you also have the task of deciding whether to go for a black-and-white or colour camera. Generally, which of the two you should choose will depend on the lighting conditions in which the CCTV will operate.
As a monochrome camera can usually capture more intricate imagery in lower light, colour cameras are often reserved for lighter areas. However, it’s perfectly possible to source colour cameras that can work well at night – and that’s convenient if you want help with identifying the hair, clothes or car of a thief, who could be especially inclined to strike at night.
Just consider Hikvision’s ColourVu technology – which, built into many of the brand’s cameras, enables them to film colourful footage even in very dimly-lit environments. This is largely due to the camera’s advanced sensor, which can make the best use of available light in order to render colour more accurately. The camera is also equipped with an extra light for extremely low-light conditions.
CCTV Maintenance and Upgrades
Once we have installed a CCTV system at your London home or workplace, our service does not have to stop there. We also offer an extensive aftercare service, where we can regularly undertake checks on your CCTV system to detect any potential problems and tackle any issues that have already emerged. We can also upgrade your system to help you capitalise on the latest CCTV technology.
In performing a detailed systematic inspection of your CCTV system, we can check its wiring and cabling for any signs of wear or damage as well as clean camera lenses and housing. We can also analyse recording and playback and make sure the camera has not become dislodged from its intended position. All of this, and we can repair any minor faults if necessary.
There are various scenarios where you might consider upgrading your CCTV system. Perhaps that system was originally installed by another supplier but is not meeting your needs, such as in picture quality. Alternatively, you might just want to add extra cameras or upgrade the system’s software. If your CCTV runs on a home automation platform, we could upgrade this software for you, too.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We inherited a “smart house” from previous owners, which stopped working a few days after we moved in. Versedautomation was brilliant at sorting everything out, in spite of having to work on someone else’s preinstalled system, offered very effective solutions, listened to all our requests and even sorted out what Sky engineers couldn’t do. Thank you!
Solid planning and spec and seamless execution and snagging. Great service all round
Versed were great. I had recently moved into a property with speakers throughout, no amps and unlabelled wires left by the previous owner, as well as a Unify wifi network that I didnt have full control of, as well as a few other tech things i was struggling with. Tried a few other companies who were totally uninterested in helping. Versed were more than happy. Yamen came round and was super helpful, working out what all the wiring was, showing me how everything worked. Particularly pleased with their cost effective solution to sourcing amps, getting the right ones for each room (bedroom vs basement cinema room) rather than just suggesting the most expensive for all. Really personal service, able to whatsapp and just generally very helpful for me who is not great at this stuff! Even popped back when I was struggling with one of the rooms. All working great, couldnt recommend more highly. Will be using them im sure when I want to upgrade anything! Thanks Yamen and team.
Good people they put in a surround system and bass shaker and very happy with it nice company
We had been having WiFi issues, Luke could not have been more helpful in sorting them out and making sure that everything was working fully before leaving, many thanks
So I am very late on this review (sorry time flys when you are a new dad) - but a few months back Versedautomation installed 13 Unifi CCTV cameras, smart flood light and setup a Unifi network with 5 wireless access points and multiple switches for me in Orpington. They have done a brilliant job, even managing to get hold of the equipment somehow when everyone was out of stock! The system is still running flawlessly, the cables are all well managed and hidden away (even tidied some of my own bad cable management). We now have great WiFi in the garden when working from home, my cars that get updates over WiFi now finally have a perfect signal and actually get updates and the cameras give great piece of mind.
Technology Enthusiasts who always tried to impress and surprise me throughout our Smart home installation and I must say that the end finish is superb and Samuel and Team worked tirelessly to get my project completed on schedule.

CCTV Installation FAQs
What types of CCTV camera can you fit?
Many different options are available, and we can talk you through them when you get in touch with us. Here is an overview of just some types of CCTV camera we are able to install:
- Dome cameras capable of panning, tilting and zooming on command
- Bullet cameras for long-distance monitoring and surveillance
- Night and day cameras that adapt as lighting conditions change
Would I be able to view live CCTV footage from any of my devices?
When installing your CCTV system, we can integrate it into your Wi-Fi system. We can, for example, firmly integrate the CCTV with a smart Wi-Fi system we could install afresh at your London home. As a result, you could view live CCTV footage from any online-connected device, such as a:
How could I benefit from being able to view a live CCTV feed remotely?
As well as providing you with valuable peace of mind, this setup would enable you to take screenshots of the live video feed in case something interesting or suspicious appears on it.
If you would like your CCTV system to be installed in a way that would let you watch a live video feed on your mobile device, please let us know when you apply for a quotation.
How long will it take you to install my CCTV system?
On average, a CCTV system will take us roughly four hours to install at a client’s property once we have turned up there to carry out the installation work. However, the exact timeframe can differ depending on the CCTV system, as we offer bespoke rather than one-size-fits-all packages. Please book a free consultation to specify what you would like in your CCTV package.
Could imagery captured on my CCTV system be used in court?
Essentially, yes; however, for this to be practically viable, you must make sure that:
- The CCTV system can provide images sufficiently clear for identification purposes
- In the imagery, anyone you want to be identified will take up at least 120% of the screen
You can help to ensure the former with the quality of the CCTV installed and the latter with where exactly the camera is placed.
What benefits can a CCTV system have for businesses?
Once installed on your company’s premises, a CCTV system can serve various purposes, including:
- Observing and recording the premises 24/7
- Monitoring remote locations, such as satellite offices
- Watching hard-to-reach equipment as it is operated
- Deterring would-be intruders
- Detecting criminal activity on the premises
- Helping you to more effectively manage productivity
- Revealing waste and maintenance issues
