Solutions for installing and troubleshooting CCTV systems

There are numerous types of CCTV camera with many different configurations and connection methods that can make installation and troubleshooting seem complicated. However, when it comes to installing IP CCTV systems, IDEAL Networks offers you a complete package for troubleshooting and testing at every stage of the process. From the popular LanTEK III cable certifier to the new SecuriTEST IP CCTV tester, you’ll also be able to quickly and efficiently provide customers with total proof of performance.

Identify network issues with SignalTEK NT transmission tester


If you’re planning to install IP CCTV cameras on to a network, you’ll want to be sure that there are no problems with the cabling before you begin. With long cables and multiple links that need testing, it’s important to choose a network tester that will get it right first time. 

Our popular SignalTEK NT is the best network transmission tester for proving and documenting performance to Gigabit Ethernet standards before CCTV installation begins. By simulating actual network traffic and using TDR to locate faults, it helps CCTV installers to identify and eliminate common causes of network downtime and slow transmission speeds. 

Suitable for copper cable and fibre cable testing for various uses, such as VoIP, CCTV, Video, and web traffic, there’s also no need to invest in more than one tester so it’s easier to keep costs down.

Increase productivity with SecuriTEST IP CCTV Tester


SecuriTEST IP is the latest addition to the IDEAL Networks tester range designed to help security installers overcome challenges and increase productivity. This CCTV tester can conduct all the tests you need to troubleshoot and document your digital/IP, HD coax and analogue CCTV camera systems.

With a long-life battery that provides up to 10 hours continuous usage, the SecuriTEST IP can be quickly and easily connected to any IP or analogue camera. This single tester can power, configure and document, increasing productivity from start to finish. 

To further save time and boost productivity, SecuriTEST IP offers automated camera connectivity via the unique QuickIP™ function, allowing for faster camera login. With QuickIP, even novice technicians will be able to connect and configure IP cameras quickly and easily.

Test top tier cable with a LanTEK III certifier


If you’re installing a top-tier cabling infrastructure using cat 6A cable for IP CCTV cameras, you can now upgrade your IDEAL Networks LanTEK III software so that you can test Modular Plug Terminated Links (MPTLs). 

To equip your LanTEK III with the capability to test MPTLs, simply download a new, free software upgrade from IDEAL Networks at www.idealnetworks.net. Once the LanTEK III has been configured with a Channel Adapter and a cat 6A Permanent Link Adapter, you’ll be able to successfully test MPTLs and rest assured that the cabling infrastructure can support your IP CCTV camera installation. 

The IDEAL Networks solution for certifying MPTL will pre-date the new standard being finalised, so you will be equipped to conduct tests to the required standard as soon as it is published.
