CCTV in Colchester

Acetech Security were approached to provide a security solution for Abbey Motors who are based in Berechurch Road, Colchester, Essex.


Abbey Motors had been receiving nuisance damage to display vehicles on a fairly regular basis, this resulted in all the vehicles being put in the workshops overnight which was hugely time consuming.

The existing CCTV system could not identify people and certainly could not view registration plates of vehicles, therefore no ID could ever be made of the individual’s causing the damage.


Abbey Motors wanted the new system to record all activity and  playback to be of suitable quality that positive identifications could be made, in addition our client wanted to use the cameras to be able to view the forecourt so they could see any potential customers from the office.  As with all modern CCTV systems from Acetech Security, images can be viewed remotely from any location in the world via Smartphone, Tablet, PC or Laptop, a fantastic tool for any small business entrepreneur.


Acetech Security visited the site and met with Steve Candler who owns the business, we recommended a five camera 2MP IP CCTV solution that would cover the whole site with exceptional clarity, this included 4 cameras mounted outside to view the forecourt areas and 1 internally to cover the sales desk and a general view of the showroom.  All the cameras are fitted with Infra-Red lights which allows them all to view in the hours of darkness without image quality being compromised.


This solution is very cost effective for the client and at the same time produces an outstanding picture quality that is only normally associated with much more expensive systems.


Essex Police visit Abbey Motors on a regular basis to check the cameras as the site is on a busy pedestrian thoroughfare from local nightspots, the Police in the past have struggled with the images produced from the old system.


Abbey Motors commissioned Acetech Security to complete the install on their behalf in January 2016, the installation was completed the following week.
