The classic security solutions, the applications of modern CCTV are diverse and their systems endlessly customisable to the needs of a given commercial or industrial client.

As established installers of modern security systems in Derby and the Midlands, CCTV forms a cornerstone of MSME Security's services. We rarely offer this as a standalone service, but instead strive to integrate it with our access control and automatic barrier systems for a complete security solution.

Our choice of software and cameras depends on the needs of the customer, which will be discussed at length during the initial site visit and consultation. A store owner, for example, might wish for heatmapping software to be integrated into the system, while a warehouse would benefit from a balance of both camera coverage and visibility to make it obvious that the site is being monitored.
