What notifications does the CCTV support?Ahmet
Hikvision CCTV systems can support a multitude of notifications that can be configured to perform various actions from alerting your mobile phone to activating a parking barrier.
That being said, this guide talks about the three main notification options.
In its simplest form, this is when an object enters the camera view area and a motion is triggered.
An invisible line can be drawn on a particular area of your camera view area, for example the driveway threshold or the garden boundary. Once an object crosses over that line (from either way) - a line crossing is triggered.
This is similar to Motion Detection but more specific. With Intrusion Detection an invisible quadrilateral shape can be drawn on a particular area of your camera view, for example directly outside your front door. Once an object then enters that area - an intrusion detection is triggered.
With all of the options above, the system is unable to detect the difference between a human, pet or other object. This can often result in false notifications being triggered to the user. In addition to this, if the system generates the notification - it is then down to your broadband provider (router) to push the notification out to your mobile device. This will often fail if your provider is not quite up to scratch or your mobile phone is currently in an area with poor coverage.
Because of this, we do not provide support on notifications that are sent to your mobile device.
I have my own equipment, do you install this?Ahmet
We are authorised and Certified by Hikvision UK to supply and install their products.
We are unable to provide you with an installation only service if you have purchased your own equipment as we are not insured to do so.
In addition to this, we would be unable to provide you with our comprehensive support and warranty for three years that our systems come with.
If you are considering purchasing your own equipment, please consider our guide here : Pitfalls of buying Hikvision from eBay or Amazon
How much to install X amount of cameras?Ahmet
Our prices are fixed, so the cost of your installation will really depend on the amount of cameras you require and the type of system.
You can obtain a free online quotation by visiting our "Online System Builder"
You can see the differences between the systems by reading "Our IP Systems Explained"
You can learn about our 'Fixed Prices, No Surprises' policy by reading our "Simple as 2, 3, 4"
Do I need a fixed IP address?Ahmet
No, unlike other companies and products - our systems do not need a fixed IP address, thus saving you at least £5 per month from your internet provider. We use the Hikvision Cloud P2P solution to ensure your CCTV is always reachable from your mobile device, regardless of IP changes.
How fast does my broadband need to be?Ahmet
For the use of Standard Definition (SD) streaming a 0.5mb service is sufficient.
For High Definition (HD) or streaming of multiple cameras at once, we would recommend anything above 2mb.
In either scenario, we always recommend using VirginMedia Fibre Optic to provide you with the best experience possible.
