IP CCTV CAMERAS
What is an IP Camera?
An Internet Protocol Camera, commonly referred to as an IP camera, is a digital video camera much like a webcam, which transmits and receives data over a network or the internet. Unlike an ordinary webcam it is a standalone unit with its own IP address that requires nothing more than a network connection in order to transfer images. The IP camera connects to a network in exactly the same way as any other standard network device such as a laptop, tablet or printer.
How does an IP Camera Work?
IP cameras capture images in much the same way as a digital camera, and compress the files to transmit over the network. IP cameras may be used with a wired network connected via Ethernet cable to a broadband modem or router, or wirelessly via a WiFi router.
What are the benefits of an IP Camera?
The images captured by an IP camera may be viewed from anywhere in the world via the internet, whether via pc, laptop or mobile phone. In many cases, as well as being able to view video footage and listen to audio streaming, the camera may also be controlled remotely. IP Cameras are a versatile security solution, requiring nothing more than a network connection. There is no need for co axial cables, a computer station or even wired electricity. IP Cameras are available for indoor and outdoor use, and with the ability to pan or zoom either remotely or via operator command. Whether you require overt or covert security, there is an IP CCTV camera to suit every Security Requirement.
WiFi Installation in to a GARDEN Office............
One of our Latest Home WiFi Installations involved getting a Strong Reliable WiFi Signal in to a Newly built Garden Office/Cabin which was 60m away from Main House. In this instance 2 Shielded No Loss CAT6 Network Cables were run from main house router down to the Cabin. Cables were then run into the cabin to separate locations. Providing 2 x CAT6 Double Outlets installed in each office 1 for Network the Other for POE Ubiquiti Access Points so the Offices will have a Hardwired and WiFi Connectivity throughout.
Getting WiFi to difficult areas is a speciality of ours and Garden Offices or Cabins or Pool Houses and new outer buildings seem to be very popular at the moment. In some cases it's impossible to get any Network Cables to the Locations so we would then use Ubiquiti Air Max, Beam Technology where a WiFi signal can be beamed up to 100s of meters away and still be extremely effective at the other end. Another good solution for Non Cable access areas is Whole Home WiFi Mesh Systems which use the latest WiFi mesh technology communicating via Mesh Access Points using no cable but portable programmable plug in devices to create a Larger WiFi Mesh Network in your Home, Garden Cabin or Office.
Our Home WiFi and Garden Office/Cabin Digital Media Services are now available in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, South Bedfordshire and North Middlesex.

Our TV Wall mounting job in Harpenden Hertfordshire was a double! The job was to fit 2 x TVs to the Wall on Tilting Brackets that would be away from children's hands. Both TVs had our Elite Package wall concealment with a plaster finish. The First TV was a 55" LG Micro thin Screen, it did come with a slight issue that the plug was a moulded and would not be able to go in wall. To get round this we ran a length of 240v Electrical Cable and fitted a Plug in Port for rear of TV Power and also a Plug that could plug into power socket the other end. 4 x 4K HDMI were fitted into wall along with the power and optical audio cable for the Soundbar. Connected Devices were Sky Q 4k, Apple TV and a NEW Sky Q Sound Table. The second TV was a Samsung Flat Screen, the plan, hiding some electrical sockets behind it and also to move out of reach of the children. The Wall was channeled out and 1 x HDMI 1 x Optical put in wall for connected HDMI AMP and Speakers. Both walls were pretty much channeled out by hand with only slight use of a machine to get through some tough brickwork. The Finish is a super smooth one, the Plaster can fill holes and cracks upto 50mm with no sags and just needs 24hrs to dry and can be lightly sanded and then painted.
Client could not get a good wifi signal to rear of property for most devices. The original Dual Band WiFi Signal was struggling to penetrate through multiple walls and obstructions.
Our WiFi Specialists ran an External CAT6 Network Cable from Router at front of House via an alleyway to the conservatory at the rear. A Dual Band Wireless Access Point was then Installed and programmed to match the primary routers login details.
FULL WiFi Coverage was achieved at the rear of property including kitchen & rooms on upper floors above conservatory area! Customers were very happy including the young lad who can now connect his Xbox to online games in the conservatory.
