But what exactly makes a great CCTV Security System for a business?

In this latest Link Alarms blog post, we will discuss the components that a business needs to make great CCTV security systems!

What are CCTV Security Systems?

CCTV security systems have become essential for businesses looking to safeguard their premises and assets. 

However, not all CCTV security systems are created equal!

To ensure that your business is adequately protected, you must invest in a CCTV security system with all the necessary components. 

What components do I need for my CCTV Security System?


The cameras are the most critical component of a CCTV security system. 

You need to choose cameras designed for your specific business needs. 

At Link Alarms, we’ll discuss your needs in depth to create a truly bespoke system for your business.

For example, if you want to monitor outdoor areas, you need to invest in weatherproof cameras with night vision capabilities. 

However, If you want to monitor the interior of your premises, you need to invest in cameras that have a high resolution and a wide field of view.

Digital Video Recorder (DVR):

DVR records and stores the footage captured by the CCTV cameras. 

The DVR is essential as it allows you to review the footage at a later date in case of an incident. 

Link Alarms install our recommended DVR that has a large storage capacity and can support high-quality footage. 

Your DVR/CCTV System will also have remote viewing capabilities so that you can view the footage from anywhere in the world.

This is made possible by the partner smartphone app that our technical team will guide you through on installation.

Cabling and Wiring:

The quality of the cabling and wiring is crucial to the performance of the CCTV security system. 

Our high-quality cabling and wiring can transmit data over long distances without losing quality, ensuring data access when you need it most.

We recommend our Commercial Wired Intruder Alarms to all potential business customers, as they offer complete peace of mind.

Access Control Systems:

Access Control Systems are an incredibly important part of a successful commercial  CCTV security system – after all, you can’t be everywhere at once!

Access Control allows you to monitor and direct internal movements by your workforce. 

It also protects your valuable assets from external threats.


Last but certainly not least are Alarms!

Upgrading yours should undoubtedly be one of your first ports of call when considering a full-purpose CCTV Security System!

Alarms alert you to suspicious activity, and we recommend linking them to a central control system.

This gives complete coverage and access to your entire facility at the click of a button.

Our alarms are fully customisable, ensuring that we can meet your unique needs, whatever they may be.
