Hi-def Video Security Formats

Catch a Crook CCTV Offers 5 Levels of Hi-def Video Security Products and Systems

2) HD-CVI. These hi-def cameras and Tribrid DVRs are very affordable and popular. They are an easy upgrade to hi-def if you have an outdated system in place. By using the existing coax cable, simply add a new DVR and cameras (if we install this, you’ll save on labor). These are outstanding systems. 2MP, 2.4MP and 4MP fixed, varifocal and PTZ cameras.

Pentabrid XVRs work with 5 formats: HD-CVI, analog, AHD, HD-TVI and IP cameras. These new formats make adding, upgrading or installing a new system a breeze. 2MP and 2.4MP fixed and varifocal cameras.

Service and Support

Setting up the new order you just received or trying to remember everything from the training session from your new installation can be confusing, difficult and/or very aggravating.

We’ll simplify your experience and also make certain you get the correct equipment for your home or business and budget. We are available via phone and e-mail and in most cases, you’ll find the answer to your question(s) or issue(s) on our User Guides page (see below).

Our objective commitment continues by offering FREE lifetime tech support and firmware updates to our valued clients long after the installation or sale is complete. If you have never setup a security system before or if you are a seasoned installer, we hope to assist you with any questions, concerns or problems that you may have and we’ll provide you with many different forms of support to help you through the process of securing your home or business.

One of the single most important things we do or offer (and you won’t find anywhere else) is the Catch a Crook CCTV FREE Report.

This FREE Report will literally save you thousands. Click HERE to download it now.

Our User Guides page is an ever-evolving and growing repository of many different User, Quick Start and How-to Guides and How-to Videos. These guides cover the most basic tech issues and common set-up and operational functions of all DVRs, NVRs and cameras and are available 24/7/365 for viewing or FREE download.

CCTV is confusing if you don’t educate yourself on how this stuff works. This can be a major problem when you are ready to buy a system or have one installed because you won’t know what to buy, what’s best for you or who to trust.
