Wireless or Wired? That is often the question

Wireless systems have advanced greatly in recent years and equipment is now very reliable. Devices contain long life batteries and have a small transmitter in order to communicate with the control equipment. This makes the devices more expensive than their wired equivalent however the extra cost is then saved because less labour is required. Wireless systems are ideal when decoration has already finished.

Wired systems if installed properly are a very permanent and long lasting job. The first systems installed by Design Security in 1984 are still working and maintained by us. During a new build or renovation it is advisable to engage Design Security early in the process to specify the correct system and conceal cables. This produces a very reliable and long term solution.


Design Security installs and maintains high quality CCTV systems. CCTV provides an excellent additional layer of security and can also serve as a management system.

We have considerable experience in selecting and positioning cameras for best results. Low light level cameras are used however additional white light or infra-red is installed where appropriate for night vision. Our recording systems over the years have provided evidence leading to many convictions.

In recent years CCTV cameras have become smaller and less expensive. Recording systems have larger hard drives providing more memory and can be viewed on your iPhone, iPad or remote device. There is however a lot of low cost rubbish on the market so the basic principle of getting a professional survey of both your needs and the site details still applies. It is important for evidence to use high quality recording equipment and have camera views professionally set up.

Design Security staff have completed training and have BTEC certification in both conventional and IP CCTV systems.
