Security camera guide

Over the last few years there’s been a rapid increase in innovation and drop in price around security camera options, meaning that it’s as cheap as ever to keep an eye on your property - whether it’s your home or business.  There are broadly x2 different security camera options available:

>  Wifi Security cameras: low-cost, lower-security

>  AI CCTV systems: higher cost, higher-security, external detection

LiveViz Monitored Smart Security cameras

LiveViz are smart security cameras that can be integrated into your existing AMCO LiveTalk monitoring system, giving our monitoring team both ‘eye’s and ‘ears' to see and listen into your property when the alarm is activated - giving us a higher-level of verification of activity on site.

LiveViz cameras can also be ‘self-monitored’ via a smartphone app - so you can remotely check all is OK with your property whenever you like.  Read more about LiveViz here >> 

Rough costs for a x1 camera LiveViz system are £155 to £225.


AI CCTV system & CCTV monitoring

Installing a CCTV system with Artificial Intelligence (AI) gives you the best CCTV on the market, enabling you to set-up intruder alerts before anyone reaches your property.

Adding Active Deterrent cameras and/or LiveTalk monitoring turns your CCTV system into an external alarm system.

Rough costs range between £650 (for a 1 camera system) to £1,950+ (for a 4 camera system).  Read more detail about CCTV and security camera options here >>


Add specialist cameras

Add specialist AI cameras designed to help you with specific tasks. For example, if you want to improve your perimeter detection outside your property, install ‘active deterrent cameras’ with in-built sirens and flashing lights - to deter any potential intruders before they reach your property.


N.B. AI cameras can only be added to IP CCTV systems. Please talk to our team to check whether your system is compatible.
