CCTV has come a long way in recent years. Not only is it a great way to keep an eye on your business and spot unwanted behaviour, but it can also deliver valuable business insights. Check-in real time from anywhere in the world when you’re sent an alert, monitor your team to ensure they’re all working safely and following procedures, or take advantage of the smarts built into our systems to see the likes of heat maps of your store, count visitors in and out, or have it search for when an item went missing so you don’t have to trawl hours of video. It’s all possible with a CCTV system designed by Security Specialists.

Keep an Eye from Afar

You won’t need to be sitting in an office, or taking the tapes home to review them later. Modern CCTV means you can access the video from anywhere in the world on your phone or laptop. Search and playback old footage, or tune in live and take control of the cameras.

Get On-The-Ground Detail

Zoom and scan around – new generation technology gives you all the control and picture resolution you need, say goodbye to those grainy, hard-to-see images.

Only Tune in for the Action

If you’ve ever watched CCTV footage, you’ll know that mostly nothing happens. So, our technology keeps an eye on things for you and can send you an alert if there’s anything to check in on.

Keep a Record

If you need to keep a record of what’s been happening, there are a range of options to choose from, and it can all be backed up to the cloud. With the ability to search and playback, you’ll always be able to access the information you’re after.

Get Insight into Your Site

An old CCTV system simply recorded the action, and that was great, but our new systems offer so much more. Modern CCTV utilises artificial intelligence and detailed analytics to deliver valuable business insights, and a deeper level of information.

  • Heat maps can show how people are moving through a store at different times meaning you can optimise displays, staffing levels and store layout, while factory and venue managers can troubleshoot bottlenecks, for example.
  • People counting means you can get a grasp on how many people are visiting, and at what times. Making rostering staff easier to manage
  • Missing object functionality can save you hours of trawling through old recordings trying to find the moment an item was stolen off the shelf.
  • Facial recognition helps to spot undesirables, but can also give valuable insight into the profile of your visitors.
  • Point of Sale integration means you can match transactions with customers.

Lessen the Losses

In 2017, retail crime cost New Zealand businesses over $1b. Around ¾ of that was to shoplifting, burglary and the like, while the remainder was employee theft. CCTV is not only a significant deterrent, but should the unfortunate happen; it gives you the tools to go in and identify those responsible. Smart searching a tracking means you can go down to transaction level, time of day, or a particular staff member. You can also set up specific triggers to alert you should something abnormal happen, e.g. a transaction outside of opening times, or cash drawer being open too long.

Keep People Safer

CCTV cameras play an important role in reducing workplace accidents and injuries. Whether it’s checking in that your safety protocols are being followed, or that your late-night worker is ok – CCTV makes it easier to keep your team safe, monitor behaviours, or if an incident does happen it can be thoroughly reviewed.

Our Experience Speaks for Itself

We’ve designed, built and maintained security systems for many large and complex organisations across New Zealand, including the Dunedin and Queenstown casinos, which involved card-access control, alarms, a large number of security cameras and full-time on-site surveillance. Our work with the new Acute Services Building at Christchurch Hospital involved 200 security cameras and access control for over 600 doors.
