Commercial Finance Solution

Patron Security Limited are pleased to be able to offer a quick and simple way of purchasing your new security equipment, through our preferred leasing partner, Focus Leasing.

Established in 1994, Focus can offer you a finance solution to suit your needs for any equipment for £1000.00 plus VAT or more.  They cover the whole of the UK and have facilities to suit all of our customers, from start up ventures to PLCs.

Improve Cashflow – Your new security equipment can be delivered and operational without the need for capital expenditure.  Have what you need today with no cash outlay.

Retain Credit Lines – Keep existing banking arrangements, credit lines and cash free for uses that are more appropriate.  Our finance facilities cannot be withdrawn like overdraft facilities.  Use cash and bank funding for working capital to maintain a healthy business.

Simplify Budgeting – Payments are fixed throughout the term of the agreement enabling accurate and simple budgeting and forecasting.  Bank facilities are generally related to interest rates, which is fine when they are low but can cripple cashflow when they increase.

Any leasing figures quoted are subject to credit approval for business users trading for over 3 years only.  We can also offer finance to start up and new businesses – ask us for figures.

Do I need to register my system with the ICO?

If the CCTV records any public images and stores the data yes your system will need to be registered.

Complete registration here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-fee/self-assessment/

How long will my system record for?

This is dependant on the system but it is possible to record images for a week, a month and even years. All data is recorded to hard drives, the bigger the hard drives, the longer your images will be saved.

What happens when it’s full?

Your Digital Video Recorder will record over old images when the hard drive is full. So if you have the capacity to record for 30 days, on day 31, day one recordings will be deleted to make room on the hard drive for day 31 recordings.

Can I make it record for longer?

Yes, there are several ways you can make the system record for longer which is dependant on your needs. You have lower the FPS (Frames Per Second), lower the image quality or switch on motion detection so that your DVR/NVR records only when motion is detected.

In a normal domestic situation, using motion detection could add weeks to your storage time, but there’s a price to pay. You’ll need to have the sensitivity on your motion detection quite high to ensure that you don’t miss anything. Increasing the sensitivity will mean that you will also record rain and possibly wind, especially if your cameras point to anything that moves in the wind.

Do the cameras light up at night?

If your camera has infrared, yes. There will be a small red ring of infrared lights that cast light that’s invisible to the human eye. Without this, your camera wouldn’t be able to see in the dark.

What is an IP CCTV Camera?

IP CCTV cameras are a new range of cameras, which offer high-quality images over computer type networks. You can record on a local computer or over the internet to a remote location.

What is an NVR?

An NVR is a Network Video Recorder, it runs with a computer type network and records images from IP CCTV cameras. Some computers with a high specification can act as a recorder. All you need is the right software.
