The flagship product of the Tag surveillance fleet.
Tag Systems pioneered the development of wireless CCTV security systems which are at the heart of surveillance and was one of the first companies in Europe to use dual data channels on the mobile phone network for video transmission resulting in two UK government ‘Smart’ awards for innovation.

Why is CCTV important in combating crime?
If you consider the advantages of installing a CCTV security system, it’s very easy to see why. When they catch criminals red-handed, they can provide valuable evidence for prosecutors. After all, it’s hard to deny that you’ve done something if footage of you doing it exists!
On top of the prosecutions, we should also consider the crimes which security cameras prevent from happening in the first place through deterrence. Security cameras represent a deterrent for would-be thieves and vandals, whose actions might inflict enormous amounts of damage to a business, particularly one dealing in high-value goods.
For this reason, businesses advertise their presence through signs bearing messages like ‘intruders will be prosecuted’. Such measures will help to discourage would-be intruders, who are looking to minimise their personal risk.
What different sorts of CCTV security systems are there?
CCTV has been adapted to suit a wide range of different circumstances. This means that, however your premises are laid out, there will be a solution to cater for them. For example, in dimly lit places, it might be advisable to install an infra-red camera, while in a brightly-lit place, this might not be necessary. By the same token, a camera which only needs to cover a fixed direction, like covering a vehicle access gateway, can be fixed to constantly point in that direction. On the other hand, in situations where a camera needs to observe a large area, then a camera whose direction can be pre-programmed or manually controlled would be better.
Technology has brought about several new sorts of camera giving CCTV layers dependant on distance, location, budget and objectives. Dome cameras have a considerable advantage – they can be pivoted to face a given direction, but it’s impossible for a potential wrongdoer to see what direction that might be. Wireless cameras are advantageous also in that they can be installed easily, cheaply and with minimal interference in the infrastructure of the building itself – making them especially useful in period or historic property. Moreover, wireless cameras are less vulnerable to sabotage by an enterprising criminal with a pair of pliers.
