IP CCTV Camera Systems - CCTV Systems design, installation and maintenance
IP CCTV network surveillance systems
Oakbury is an expert in the design and installation of IP CCTV cameras. In fact, our reputation for installing IP surveillance systems across the UK and Europe means your security is in the best hands.
We use market-leading IP CCTV systems to ensure seamless integration with existing IT applications and policies — something that we are very proud to supply. Our network-based CCTV systems provide reduced running costs, increased flexibility, choice of video analytics and great picture quality.
What Is an IP CCTV Camera?
Traditional CCTV systems use analogue links to connect cameras to the control station and DVR (Digital Video Recorder).
However, wireless or IP CCTV systems seamlessly link cameras, control stations and NVRs together on an IP (Internet Protocol) network. IP networks are traditionally IT-based, and IP connections are made over a CAT5 or CAT6 data cable network. This system can be easily integrated with any existing IP network resources; for example, the company LAN, WAN (router) and broadband connections.
An IP CCTV system enables easy access to video data from networked cameras and can be accessed remotely from home or anywhere in the world, on any device with an internet connection, including mobile phones, tablets and laptop computers. Digital footage can be quickly reviewed by local or external sources, such as monitoring station staff or the police. You do not need to attend a site to interrogate a tape-based system to a specific point, as the systems can search for motion detection, or specific and dangerous behaviour patterns.
IP CCTV camera systems are fast-replacing analogue systems, with Oakbury experts in the installation and planning of IP systems and service. Rest assured that we have successfully migrated many analogue systems to an IP-based infrastructure — view our case studies for just a few high-profile examples.

CCTV with Superior Image Quality
Image quality is clearly one of the most important features of any camera. That is why IP CCTV cameras from Oakbury give superior image quality in even poor lighting conditions, enabling the identification of incidents with unparalleled image quality. This means that the user can closely follow changing situations as they develop, ensuring effective decision making leading to increased safeguarding for people and property. It also ensures greater accuracy for automated analysis and alarm tools. Our IP surveillance systems also ensure that in critical situations you can identify what is really happening and, in many cases, notify the civil authorities to apprehend intruders while they are still on the premises. In a fully digital IP surveillance system, images from a network camera are digitised only once and they stay digital with no unnecessary conversions, therefore no image degradation due to distance travelled over a network.
Facial Recognition Systems
IP video technology advances daily and there are enormous possibilities for face recognition technology both now and in the future. Oakbury is experiencing a high demand from companies across the globe where security has become the crucial factor for business growth. Fortunately, we can provide the right solution for crime mitigation and have provided solutions in many market sectors, including retail, banking and law enforcement.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition
Our Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems provide high-performance detection of vehicle number plates that can be used for access control, car park management, traffic monitoring and journey time analysis systems. Our ANPR systems will also detect vehicles loitering and allow users to view historical data to identify vehicles being used by criminals for unlawful surveillance.
