We ensure that the right surveillance solution is installed to manufacturer standard. We offer only the best top quality brands.
Maintenance and service are key elements in ensuring any surveillance system remains effective and trouble free in operation at all times. Actek take great pride in ensuring all equipment is fully tested to the highest standards before, during and after installations. It is important however to test and maintain the equipment at regular intervals to make sure the system is running at its optimum capacity. An effective service level agreement ensures our commitment to service delivery whether with a site based technician or an off-site technician.
We can help manage any changes and also provide expert advice on technologies and their capabilities.
We offer integration with third party systems such as alarm and fire panels, access control, point-of-sale, building and plant management systems, and perimeter monitoring equipment to provide an extremely powerful single user interface, with video verification of events that occur on these systems.

IP or Analog?
Have you ever seen a crime drama movie or TV show where a bunch of police are gathered around surveillance footage and suddenly one of them says: “Wait! Zoom in on that guy! Enhance the image!” and then suddenly, miraculously, the grainy and blurry footage of what might be vaguely a human becomes a precise, crystal clear vision of the culprit? They identify the perpetrator, bring him in, and case closed.
Well, that's total fiction. In reality, that grainy footage from that analog security camera is only going to get blurrier and grainier when you zoom in for a closer look. But all is not lost! We are indeed living in the future, and IP cameras are the wave of it.

However, it comes at a cost. Not some metaphorical cost, like “your soul” or something, but an actual monetary cost. So you have to ask yourself…Should you hop on the IP train?
Well, that's why we're here: to give you the run down so you can decide for yourself if the upgrade is worth it.
In our honest opinion analog will still be around for a while, mostly due to the cost of replacing existing cabling infrastructure. But if you are considering upgrading your system or doing a new installation, it is best to go for the latest and greatest which is IP. Read More...
