Cerberus’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.
Why Commercial CCTV Installation?
CCTV for businesses protects all commercial sites from the dangers of intruders and other risk factors including fire. High risk environments, sites with highly valuable stock or where confidential data is stored benefit from our range of high definition cameras. The advanced camera technology enables superior quality images to be recorded of people entering and exiting, as well as the ability to zoom in for extra clarity.
Our Commercial CCTV installations include:
- Temporary or Fixed CCTV
- Wireless detection systems
- CCTV hire
Offering cost-effective solutions, CCTV systems can reduce the need for a physical security presence on site. Advancements in CCTV technology enable our systems to be used across many applications including machine condition monitoring, and human body temperature monitoring, that helps to combat the spread of infectious diseases.
Site-wide commercial CCTV security allows not only for high definition visual verification but for any intruder attempting to gain unauthorised access to be sent an audible audible warning. If the intruder does not vacate your building as instructed, the key holder of your property and the emergency services will be informed. The CCTV recording also means an accurate description and visual image of the perpetrator can easily be provided should further investigation or follow up be required.
Temporary CCTV Solutions and Fixed CCTV Services
Temporary CCTV is often used for premises which are in remote locations or with limited access to reliable power. Wherever your site is located, temporary fixed CCTV services can be deployed and installed rapidly to meet your security needs. Some common uses include:
- Open spaces
- Construction sites
- Outdoor events
- Music festivals
- Premises with short term occupancy
Aside from acting as a clear visual deterrent, all CCTV footage is recorded and transmitted in real-time to our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), which has been accredited to Gold Standard by the UK’s National Security Inspectorate. All notifications are checked and investigated for false alerts, with our team ready to dispatch security or notify the police as and when required.
We will discuss your commercial CCTV hire requirements and conduct an initial site audit to determine the level of temporary CCTV coverage the site requires, covering key access points and ensuring any security weaknesses, such as the property perimeter are addressed. We may also recommend a combination of additional security measures, such as security guards or concrete barriers to secure the site at this stage.
When it comes to installation, temporary CCTV towers can be erected within 30 mins from arriving on site and are compatible with all environments and weather conditions.
Our CCTV towers can be controlled remotely, detecting movement, rotating and zooming in real-time and providing clear and professional CCTV monitoring no matter the weather conditions or time of day.
This even applies to sites with limited power access, as we can provide a solar-powered temporary CCTV solution, ensuring reliable and consistent CCTV monitoring no matter where your premises are.
Wireless Detection Systems
Available in combination or in isolation, our wireless detection systems are designed to provide a simple, stress-free and effective security solution for your premises.
Our wireless detection alarms and camera systems can operate standalone for up to 24 months at a time. Self-diagnostic and linked to our alarm monitoring centre, you can rest assured all alarms and alerts are monitored and responded to by our team at our Alarm Receiving Centre.
As with our temporary CCTV solution, our wireless detection systems work in connection with our Gold Standard accredited ARC, giving you peace of mind that all alarms and alerts are handled with the same excellent security monitoring as our full, fixed CCTV services.
A wireless detection system is an excellent compromise for businesses and organisations who have a smaller budget or don’t need or wish to install a full CCTV system on site, but would still like 24/7 robust security.
With a comprehensive audit, we will identify, like with our CCTV installation services, the key areas that need detection system monitoring and any other security measures which we recommend as essential to protect your business or organisation.
Existing CCTV System Upgrades
Cerberus 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.
Network/IP CCTV Cameras
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.
Wireless CCTV Cameras
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.
Dome CCTV Cameras
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.
Thermal CCTV Cameras
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.
Bullet CCTV Cameras
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.
C-Mount CCTV Cameras
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.
PTZ Pan Tilt & Zoom Cameras
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.
Day/Night CCTV Cameras
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.
Infrared/Night Vision CCTV Cameras
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.
Body Temperature Detection System
Our body temperature detection system can be used as a mass fever scanner, allowing organisations to monitor the temperature of up to 30 individuals in areas in which there is a constant flow of people. Comprising of a thermal imaging camera and facial recognition technology, it provides temperature information in real-time, preventing the spread of viruses.

Can you install CCTV during the pandemic?
Throughout the pandemic, Cerberus 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.
How long do you provide installation for (i.e. short term or long term)
Cerberus 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.
What are your response times in the event of a breach?
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.
Are there any legal requirements to using your CCTV on our business premises?
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.
Are your CCTV services GDPR compliant?
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.
Where can I read more about the technical specifications of your CCTV systems?
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.
Can you provide a site assessment?
Yes, and we recommend doing so. This discovery session enables us to highlight and pinpoint any ‘blind spots’ and advise on the set up of your commercial CCTV systems. We can then provide a more accurate quote for the setup, installation and maintenance.
Do you provide out of hours assistance?
Yes, our Alarm Receiving Centre is open and manned by security personnel 24/7, and can be contacted on 0870 770 6811 should you encounter a problem or become aware of a potential threat.
What happens in the event of an activation?
If we visit your site due to an activation or CCTV breach, we will send you a full activation report summarising the event details such as the time, location and date. We will also log the measures taken and inform your staff.
Will you maintain the CCTV?
Yes, our installations are contingent on a regular maintenance contract being in place as this is the only way we can guarantee continued performance. We will arrange routine maintenance of all of our CCTV systems to ensure that they are working as expected. A regular maintenance schedule is necessary to reduce any outages that may occur.
Do I need any supplementary services?
This depends on your security needs and we can advise on this during our site visit. We can also install alarms to detect fire and flooding or video verified alarms to detect movement in certain areas of your site.
