CCTV for Domestic Purposes

At one time, closed-circuit television (CCTV) was only used in public areas such as shopping centres and high streets. Such systems were installed to monitor criminal behaviour and to help increase trust among residents. However, with advances in technology, there are now ways that you can have CCTV-style monitoring in and around your own home.

Metro Security has a trusted reputation with professional and dedicated staff that put your security needs first. With our latest equipment and 24-hour monitoring, you can be sure that there your home and property will be safe and secure.

All that you need to do is book your free site security survey and threat assessment, and we will create the perfect package for your needs.

Why do you need CCTV at home?

Home security measures have always been an important part of ensuring the safety of your family and property. In the past, this has meant burglar alarms and motion sensors for most people, but technology has since become more advanced.

Modern CCTV technology can give you a detailed picture of your property inside and out. It also has the capability to show customers in real time, any camera through their smart devices from wherever they may be.

CCTV isn’t just about monitoring your home and property; it is also about peace of mind and providing an effective deterrent against anyone looking to break into your home or garden.

Having CCTV and other security measures will help ensure that any intruder into your home or garden can be identified. This will be of huge help to the authorities, while also allowing you to monitor any suspicious activity.


Metro Security doesn’t simply offer CCTV as the only security measure. We can also add other equipment to your home to offer additional safety.

  • Wireless burglar alarms

A fully customisable wireless burglar alarm is a simple and cost-effective means of ensuring additional security.

  • Wired intruder alarms

These are far more sophisticated than the older traditional alarms. You can also have the bells only, or fully police monitored.

  • Panic alarm/nurse call systems

These versatile systems can be used if an intruder enters the property, or for the elderly if they have a fall.

Once pushed, the panic alarm will signal the Metro Security 24/7 monitoring centre, which will notify the appropriate authorities.


As you can see, there are many options available to you when it comes to keeping you and your family safe. All of these features and packages can be discussed when you request our free site security survey and threat assessment.

How does it work?

Before you decide on any package, we will arrange a free site security survey and threat assessment at a time to suit you.

This assessment will be performed by our experienced and fully trained technicians who can assess your property and grounds and highlight any areas that need further protection.

Our friendly team will then chat with you about the results of the assessment and advise as to which package will suit your needs.

All aspects will be discussed with you, so that you are fully informed and able to make the right decision. You, of course, have the final say on what package you want to use.

If you decide to go ahead, we will arrange a time to install the systems you need and set everything up for you. As with the assessment, this appointment will be at a time that is convenient for you.

Any CCTV cameras fitted will be specially placed to achieve the optimal viewing angle. This will help ensure there are no ‘dark spots’ where a camera cannot see.

We know that this is your home, and so any wiring that is installed will be hidden as much as possible. If you have an old intruder alarm fitted, we can sometimes reuse these cables if they are suitable.

All the equipment will be fully tested before we leave, and we will also give you a full demonstration, so that you are able to understand how everything works.

If at any time there is a problem with your equipment, or there is something you don’t understand, we are always happy to offer guidance and help. Our friendly staff are trained to troubleshoot your problem and come up with the best solution. If the given concern cannot be entirely resolved over the phone, we will send out a technician to help fix any problems.

Regular maintenance and software upgrades are essential, so we offer a maintenance service that you can use to ensure all your security equipment is fully functional and up to date.
