CCTV SYSTEMS & INSTALLATION SERVICES WIGAN
Types of CCTV systems available.
Argus install all types of CCTV Systems, from the basic analog camera systems that record to a digital recorder, to the latest in IP digital CCTV solutions. Argus also install other systems i.e HD-SDI protocol cameras and time lapse recording systems.
For higher risk environments where CCTV recording alone is not enough, Argus can design you an off-site monitored CCTV Solution, with cameras that on detection of movement will contact a 24 hour manned monitoring station. These systems can often save you lots of money against the cost of security guards and provide complete peace of mind that your property is safe and secure from trespassers.
Police Response Systems (BS8418)
The police response standard for CCTV Systems in the UK is BS8418. BS8418 is the code of practice for the installation and monitoring of all detector activated CCTV that requires a Police URN. A CCTV company such as Argus can only apply for a police URN if they are approved by an inspectorate such as the NSI. All police response CCTV systems must be designed and installed to meet all the criteria of BS8418.
Maintenance and Monitoring
Argus recommend that all CCTV Systems are annually maintained. Stand alone and none URN monitored systems, require a minimum of 1 service visit per annum, however, police response systems should have a minimum of 2 service visits per annum. A service visit is required to ensure that all cameras are still viewing the intended area, are focused correctly, have clean lenses, are fully operable, and also ensure that the system recording, detection, and monitoring equipment is in full working order. Argus service regime is in full accordance with NSI code of Practice NCP104, and for Police response systems BS8418.
CCTV Standards and Approvals.
The European standard for CCTV installations in the UK is BS EN50132-7:2012, which is the latest European regulation. Security CCTV companies who claim to work to this standard should be approved by a security body, each security body has there own interpretation of this standard. Argus is approved by the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) to the highest standard and certify all of our Security CCTV Installations to the NSI standard NCP104. Argus staff have under gone further Security CCTV training in 2013 to ensure all CCTV engineers are competent to work to the new installation standard.

Testimonials – What Our Clients Say
“After a recent break at my home I contacted Argus Fire and Security to provide a quotation for CCTV. I was very impressed with the rapid response and detailed quotation, the system purchased is of high quality and I particularly like the remote viewing capability from my mobile devices.
Thank you Argus for a job well done, please pass on my appreciation to your staff for their diligence and professionalism.”
“I have used Argus Fire and Security Ltd for many years. I trust them to provide Intruder Alarms and CCTV for my home and business. Argus has always been trustworthy and reliable and I would happily recommend them as an Alarm and Security company. Thank you, Argus.”
Mr. A Lems.
“Great service from Argus. On the initial assessment they identified that a burglar could break down our door and enter most of the office without activating the alarm. Argus installed a completely new system for much less than I was expecting, and with their remote monitoring that’s linked to a key holder we have total piece of mind.”
