The Benefits of Renting CCTV Cameras

CCTV cameras are the most effective way of protecting construction sites, Critical National Infrastructure and any locations where temporary monitoring is required

Having a CCTV presence will help reduce and prevent theft, vandalism, trespass, and arson. WCCTV firmly believes that is why every construction site can benefit from installing rapid deployment CCTV cameras. 

CCTV also delivers multiple additional benefits, such as real-time monitoring of sites to assist with remote project management, video evidence of any accidents or injuries that occur on-site, and storing footage that can be used for police and insurance investigations.

Choosing the best CCTV system for your sites can be a tricky decision, so if you're struggling to decide which cameras to use, first consult WCCTV's helpful guide on choosing the best CCTV system.

Once you've decided what system you want to install, the next step is to decide whether to rent or buy the system outright. 

WCCTV, the UK's leading provider of rapid deployment CCTV, outlines why renting a CCTV system may be the best option for you.

CCTV Cameras: Renting Vs. Purchasing

A major deciding factor in whether to rent or purchase CCTV cameras should, of course, be whether your surveillance requirements are temporary or permanent.  

If you are a police force or local authority looking to tackle persistent issues across your towns and cities, then WCCTV would recommend purchasing a portable, redeployable CCTV camera to tackle these issues responsively.  

The benefits of purchasing redeployable CCTV for these applications are: 

  1. Ownership Benefits: Owning your CCTV cameras means you can depreciate the asset over time and benefit from tax savings. You can also move it from location to location as you require. WCCTV's cameras are plug-and-play systems offering total portability, so moving them couldn't be easier. 

  2. Long Term Cost Savings: Purchasing a CCTV system outright will deliver cost savings over time. If you plan to deploy the cameras permanently for several years, then purchasing will absolutely be the most cost-effective option.

If your surveillance requirements are more temporary, such as at a construction site, highways, rail, or public event, WCCTV would strongly recommend renting a CCTV package.

The major benefits of renting a surveillance camera include:

  1. Immediate cost savings: Renting a CCTV solution means you only pay for the kit when you really need it. There are no upfront costs, and you won't have surplus CCTV equipment sat on the shelf. 

  2. Easier procurement process: Typically, getting sign-off from your finance or procurement teams for renting equipment will be less cumbersome than getting approval for a high-cost capital purchase. Renting means you can have your kit on site quicker without worrying about the need to depreciate assets over time. 

  3. Convenience: When you rent a WCCTV Tower of Dome Camera, we will come and install the kit for you, and at the end of your project or event, we will come and collect everything. So you don't need to worry about transporting or storing the cameras between jobs.

  4. Latest equipment: When renting a CCTV solution from WCCTV, you know you're always going to be benefitting from the latest surveillance technology and won't have to worry about upgrading your kit when newer technology becomes available. 

  5. Rapid deployment: WCCTV portable CCTV solutions are quicker, easier and cheaper to install than fixed cameras. There's no civil work involved, so no need to delay your projects to wait for cabling to be installed; you can install a WCCTV camera in minutes. 

  6. Fully managed service. WCCTV will provide a managed service that includes equipment installation, alarm monitoring, maintenance, and ongoing technical support as part of any rental agreement. We'll take care of everything and let you concentrate on what you do best. 

The above considerations are all worth keeping in mind for your next projects, and ultimately whether you choose to rent or purchase will depend entirely on what is most cost-effective and convenient for you.

At WCCTV, we offer all of our CCTV solutions on a sale or rental basis; it's part of our promise of always being easy to do business with.
