Cheltenham CCTV Services


all cctv cameras


outdoor cctv cameras CheltenhamWe have been asked on many occasion whether we install CCTV cameras for Cheltenham hotels, businesses and home owners as well as the surrounding areas and so we spent some time looking at the CCTV camera market and how they could be best used and what would best suit our expertise as IT Professionals and we settled on the same brand as we use for when we install wifi access points - Ubiquiti.


We now offer CCTV in Cheltenham for hotels, businesses, care homes, serviced apartments and home owners; to name just a few.


The CCTV system we use is not locked into licenses or the number of cameras you use - unlike many other CCTV camera systems.


Our CCTV System Of Choice

Our Cheltenham CCTV service uses cameras suitable for indoor and outdoor use and can work during the day and night.

indoor cctv cameras CheltenhamThe cameras are High Definition and can record at full HD or at lower resolutions to save on storage space.

Cameras can be viewed from a local PC or via a remote access service that can be used on a PC, iPad or Phone. This means you can either view a live view of the cameras or look at recordings from anywhere in the world that has an Internet connection or 3g / 4g connection.


There is no real limit to the number of cameras that can be used. We've seen systems running 150 cameras.


Cheltenham CCTV Recording Devices 


You can record your CCTV to an NVR device of your choosing although a specialised device by the same manufacturer is available to make setup even easier. However, the device has a small hard drive and is only suitable for home users with just a few cameras.

Larger CCTV environments will want to record far more data and therefore a larger capacity device will be needed and we choose to install a Network Attached Storage device (NAS) such as a Synology.

A NAS allows for a far greater CCTV storage capacity and will allow you to keep many days worth of recordings although the higher the resolution, the greater the file size and this has a knock-on effect to storage capacity and so on.

How Can The CCTV Cameras Be Configured ?


Cameras can be wall or ceiling mounted and can be manually rotated 180 degrees left or right. You can also manually tilt the lens up or down in order to get the best coverage but with wide angled lenses such as these, there should be no problem getting the coverage required.


The CCTV cameras can be used during the day or night and come with full infrared capability.

Recordings come in three possible modes:


  1. Continual recording
  2. Scheduled recording - only record during set times of the day or night
  3. Motion detection recording - Only record when motion is detected


It is also possible to determine how long the recording continues. You can set the camera to keep recording for any period of time you choose once motion has been detected.

If you have a door with a cat flap you want to cover but want to avoid having the cat trigger the motion sensor, you can, from the control panel, draw out a motion zone which does not cover the cat flap, therefore, when the cat goes in and out of the flap, the recording does not get triggered, but should someone open the door, it will trigger and the recording will begin.

IT Support For Small Businesses In Cheltenham

Cheltenham Computer Specialists provides comprehensive IT support to small and medium sized businesses in and around Cheltenham.

Generally, small businesses can't afford a full-time IT manager or member of staff, especially one as experienced as us.

Small and medium sized businesses in Cheltenham can receive expert advice on all manner of IT related issues at a fraction of the cost of a full-time and potentially, inexperienced, IT support staff.

With Cheltenham Computer Specialists, small to medium sized businesses can get qualified and highly experienced IT support either as an ad-hoc service, paid for on a "pay-as-you-go" basis or as part of a low cost, Service Level Agreement (SLA) which entitles businesses to faster response times, email, telephone and remote support, all as part of a very low cost, monthly payment.


Low Cost, High Experience, IT Support Services

An entry level IT support staff position, as part of a team of other IT staff, will "command" a salary of around £15,000.

Entry level IT staff have had next to no experience, been exposed to almost no real-life IT issues and have had very little, if any, experience of looking after a network which contains mission critical data.

£15,000 is over £1,000 a month and this now requires a pension scheme, paid annual leave, paid sick leave and even maternity / paternity leave. If you wish to get rid of them, it's now more difficult than ever.

By using Cheltenham Computer Specialists, you get over 15 years of IT experience gained from working at some large institutions. You get the knowledge and experience of those on much higher salaries.


Your IT system Is Safe In Our Hands


With all this experience, Cheltenham businesses can rest assured that they have excellent support and advice to keep their system(s) working correctly.

Information will be safe and you can focus on doing what you do best in the knowledge that you have someone to call should things need attention.



Remote Access Services

With a lot of staff now working from remote locations or wishing to work whilst abroad, on holiday, when on sick leave or maternity leave, it's becoming more of a requirements to enable remote access.

Remote access can be through various means:


  • Terminal Services - which allows users to use programmes as well as the files and emails
  • Remote Desktop - which allows users to remote into their own desktop and use it as if sitting in front of it
  • VPN conenctions which create a virtual network to the company server and the files, folders and email system
  • WebDav - which is similar to a VPN conenction

Firewall Setup & Configuration

firewall-setup-cheltenham-gloucestershireFirewalls prevent hackers, spam and viruses from coming into your network and control what your users send outside of the network - or what they see on the Internet.

At Cheltenham Computer Specialists, we work with and supply Watchguard firewalls. Watchguard fiewalls are cost effective and offer a superior line of defense in the battle against network attacks.


A firewall stops attackers BEFORE they get into the network rather than attempting to control it once it is in the network.

  • Stops Viruses
  • Stops Network Attacks
  • Controls Spam

  • Stop Company Data Being Stolen
  • Provides SSL VPN Connections

Local Cloud Backups 

Cloud Storage for Cheltenham and GloucestershireCheltenham Computer Specialists can offer cloud data backup services to our Cheltenham based servers.

Our servers are protected by state of the art firewalls and server redundancy as well as power failure backup units in case of a power cut.


Our firewalls scan all incoming data for malicious behaviour and stops any malicious items from getting into the server.


We have a number of businesses from Cheltenham, Stroud, Gloucester and Tewkesbury that backup their data to our servers on a daily basis - and we monitor that for them as well.


Remote Access To Cloud Storage


If you had a disaster and had no server to restore your data to, we could rapidly set up remote access to your backups on our servers. This would allow any user you require, to work from any Internet connected computer and work with the data as if they were in the office - open a document, work on the document, save the document.

This only works for files and folders and not emails but we could have your email system re-routed and up and running in no time. We can also have your emails delivered to a new server so anyone sending you emails will not have a failure notice and you will ultimately receive those emails.
