Fast Connected CCTV

Wireless connectivity removes the cost and delay in installing expensive copper or fibre networks.  This makes installing Connected CCTV from Uplands up to 50% cheaper than other solutions.

Connected CCTV is a stable, secure and low-cost way to transmit footage across mobile networks.  But you don’t need 4G connectivity for the live streaming to work.  Instead the system uses a unique technology to compress the images.

It will even operate at bandwidths down to 9kb per second, meaning it can be streamed over 2G networks and you’ll only use your data allowance when you’re viewing content or retrieving HD images.
