Homeowners are being urged to review their security options as lockdown measures continue to ease. Here the team at ESP identifies some solutions that could fit the bill.
Despite the vast majority of Brits spending more time at home than ever before, recently released data has revealed that 356,000 homes were broken into last year, prompting security experts to issue warnings surrounding improving home security during lockdown.
According to a recent study, 64% of burglaries in England and Wales happen while residents are on the premises. Speaking directly to the culprits, when asked which were the best deterrents, twelve former burglars voted CCTV as the most effective, followed by the sound of a dog barking, security lights and fences.
With its range of CCTV systems covering entry level CCTV kits right through to the more sophisticated IP CCTV solutions, ESP has something to suit all requirements. For the installer, there is scope to offer homeowners a starting-from-scratch system or an upgrade of an existing system to a more sophisticated solution.
The RekorHD range from ESP is an ideal system for those homeowners looking for a premium quality CCTV system that is competitively priced. These 4-channel CCTV 1080p kits are packed with features and designed with ease of set up as a key focus, including the option for remote monitoring via smartphone or tablet, using ESP’s specially developed ESP View App. So, whether they’re working from home or in the office, users are able to keep an eye on their premises.
The RekorHD kits have recently been the subject of a revamp and now include new and improved cameras, which feature contemporary styling and robust metal housings. The infrared capture has been increased from 20 to 30m and the range now includes intelligent function, with perimeter intrusion detection and line crossing detection offering improved functionality compared with the traditional motion detection feature.
There are 2 and 4 camera kits available, and they include a 4-channel DVR, premium quality surveillance hard drive, cameras, camera cables, system power supply, mouse and HDMI cable. The menu is designed to be user-friendly and is navigated via mouse control, making it an easy sell to customers.
For those willing to invest in a more sophisticated security solution, or keen to upgrade an old system, there is the ESP HDView range of 4 Megapixel CCTV systems. These offer an upgrade from 1080p (2 Megapixel) to 4MP to give users a higher density of pixels to produce a super high definition image clarity. The HDview 4MP range was developed to bring to market a complete collection of superior quality, high end CCTV products that offer greatly improved image specification, while also benefitting from a contemporary look that is being demanded by more end users.
At the top end of the market for domestic CCTV solutions is the latest IP POE CCTV technology. This is designed to offer superior, reliable and straightforward installation solutions. ESP’s Rekor IP 2 Megapixel range features POE (Power-Over-Ethernet) which enables the camera and power feed to be wired in Cat5e cable up to 100m without the need for additional power, which makes installation much more convenient.
A single Ethernet cable provides both the power and the HD digital feed, with just one cable per camera and multiple cameras can be installed anywhere on the network that the NVR is connected to. The NVRs are packed with features, such as remote monitoring via the ESP View App, H265 compression, motion record activation and they’re supplied with quality surveillance hard drives for peace of mind.
