IP CCTV System installation in Cockermouth, Cumbria, North Lakes, Lake District, West Cumbria

We are certainly back into the swing of things for 2020!

Delighted to provide the installation of this IP CCTV system in Cockermouth for a new domestic customer to achieve perimeter protection for the property.

We opted for a new range of IP camera from Hikvision, 4MP AcuSense with a 50 max IR range. These cameras are tailored to low light levels and gave us brilliant night time images. Each camera was setup for line crossing detection with notifications going straight to the clients mobile phone app.


CCTV Mobile Phone Notifications provides extra security for our customers – Cumbria, Wigton, Carlisle, Penrith, Workington, Whitehaven, Appleby, Kirkby Stephen, Kendal

We can setup CCTV systems for detecting moving objects in and around areas of farms that area protected with our cameras.

The most common method being “Line Crossing”. We apply a trip wire in an agreed location on the cameras image meaning if anyone or anything moves through it then a notification will be sent directly to your mobile app along with several images.

Theses notifications can be placed on schedules and become active at desired times of the day only.

There is no annual subscription cost when using the Hik-Connect remote viewing app.
