Have got a contract in the UK to install a high-end large residential IP CCTV system. Am just trying to settle on a brand and one of my suppliers (CCTV Direct) here in the UK stocks UNIVIEW kit. I understand this is very high-end kit and the specs are impressive and fits the bill for the design I have created. However, I cannot seem to find much in the way of user/installer reviews. Anyone used it and can give me a heads up?
Happy New Year to all.
To echo what Tom has indicated, the fact that there is little user/installer reviews should raise questions.
Installations in the UK need to comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA) which require considerations of Operational Requirement, Privacy Impact Assessments, fit for purpose etc.
Once you have an understanding of pixels on target (DODI), this will point you in the direction of the required technical specification and thus the design.
Cyber security is growing issue (see DPA and latest advice from the security agencies) so this also needs to be considered in the selection of manufacturer and network design.
Hope this helps
