Hello all, welcome to our website.

In 2010 Chris came up with the idea to run his own security company. The reasoning behind this was simple, good people were paying a lot of money for cheap evidentially useless CCTV systems and he knew he could do it cheaper, with better kit, better service and better workmanship.

In 2015 Chris teamed up with a fellow Scout leader Phil to make his 5 year long dream a reality. On November 4th 2015 Camsec Security ltd began trading.

Phil Jarvis and Chris Troughton


Chris' background:

15 years as a police officer, last 5 of those dealing solely with CCTV and digital images/videos in the digital forensic SCO4 department, specialising in identification of unknown offenders via images and videos from mobile phones, cctv, internet etc. This would then be prepared for court in evidential format. Chris has literally seen thousands of CCTV systems, from 1 camera home installations to a 16000 camera installation, military, aviation, transport services, large retail chains, ANPR, facial recognition, thermal imaging, POS integrated systems etc. From his experience, having used those thousands of CCTV systems, he chose Hikvision as being the best kit for the job.


Phils' background:

Phil obtained a degree in Quantity Surveying from the University of Westminster in 1998 and went on to work as a Quantity Surveyor in the private sector working on projects ranging from banks to historic palaces and theatres including many historically and listed buildings.

More recently he has spent a lot of time working on major projects at Heathrow Airport and also multi-million pound developments in London.

Phil felt it was time to take greater control of his work life and steer his own destiny. The chance to start this company with Chris has given him that possibility as well as being able to assist people by giving them peace of mind with the security CCTV can provide.


We are based in Hillingdon West London but will travel wherever you need us. We have strong links with the Hillingdon NHW, local businesses and the Police. We provide an all in service, from installation to the court room! For example, we install your system which is guaranteed for 2 years, we can monitor it for faults remotely on a regular basis, hassle free replacement if required, then a crime happens, the police need your CCTV footage for evidence, but you don't want to go to court, so you call us, we can attend, download the CCTV, evidence it, produce witness continuity statements for the police and attend court in your place as the down-loaders. No one else offers this!

Our kit:-

We use Hikvision which is the worlds No.1 manufacturer, which we purchase through DVS, the UK's largest importer of Hikvision, and GTEC a local supplier in Hounslow. All of our kit comes with a 2 year guarantee, and up to 3 years on the hard drives. We only supply high definition CCTV, as analogue CCTV has such a low resolution it is evidentially flawed.

We can supply Hikvision Turbo HD TVI, IP, AHD, Thermal imaging CCTV from FLIR, and anything else you could possibly imagine.

We can now offer twin lane ANPR systems at seriously affordable prices!

We will not be beaten on price, we will match anything you have been quoted (Like for like of course)

Please have a look at our testimonials, if you wish to view before you buy, we can show you many of our previous installations, as lots of our customers are happy to show off their shiny new HD systems to prospective customers!

Many thanks

Chris and Phil
