Sectional gates have become, last years, a popular solutions to close a garage. If your are looking for a gate to your house, we´ll tell you everything about this system. You didn´t remain indifferent by it. To get an idea about the features of these gates, we are going to explainhow they involve versus some concepts.


One of the main advatages when you install a sectional gate is saving space. The opening and closing system is vertical, so you could use all your garage. Gates are made to measures and the most important requirement is to have a roof, beacuase the mechanism will be fixed there.

It´s made by Europeean institutions to verify that gates obey all security and quality regulations. Sectional gates are made by different materials. Each of them have their advantages or disadvantages. Let go to review all these materials.


PVC material has two great advantages: it´s very cheap and it has a great hermatic ability. However, lat years it has fallen in disuse. It´s a weak metarial and it isn´t recommended to big gates. Also, it´s easy to be damaged.


Wood isn´t a cheap meterial but it´s loved by a lot of clients. It looks fantastic, beautiful and it´s great hermetic material. However, it needs a regular and expensive maintenance because the weeather and wood are´t good friednsd. You´ll need anti-humidity treatment…


Sectional gates made by iron are composed by a iron sheet. It is perforated by some sticks to give stiffness and resistance to gates. However, we hope you don´t live in a places with extreme climatology, beacuse this kinf gates don´t give you a hermetic closing.


If we don´t bear in mind the money, aluminium is perfect to your sectional gate. It´s a strpmger material against bad weather, and it doesn´t need an regular maintenance. Your could personalize your aluminium gate, and your gate shall be adapted to many styles. Sectional gates aare the perfect mixed between beauty and efficay.

componentes sistema CCTV components

To discover the components of surveillance system is a confusing, but necessary, issue. To know all their characteristics, functions and possibilities is something essencial to get our goal: increase the security.

En este artículo nos detendremos en alguno de los elementos del sistema CCTV para ver sus prestaciones y las diferentes opciones existentes. Una pequeña guía para entender si un presupuesto se adapta a nuestras necesidades o no.

In this article we´ll see some elements of CCTV system to know their feautres, and different options. A little guide to  understand if a quotations is adapted to our needs or not.


Cameras are one the components visiblest of a CCTV system. The technologic evolutions has been so fast, so now we could find endless options. We are going to show the feautes you have to keep in mind when we look for our camera:

  • Power supplying: we could find cameras that work to 200VCA, 24VAC or 12VCC. We have to be care of this info to don´t have a mistake.
  • Sensor kind: we have to know about CCD sensor, catch white/black signs, and CMOS that catch white, black and infrarred signs.
  • Resolution: it calculates the quality of  the details are watching, it means, the image definition. The standard resolution of a CCTV camera is 420TVL (TV lines) it´s above the average of cameras.
  • Film Speed: it informs about the minium light we need to get a video sign. It measures by LUX. We have to think where we fix the camara and what we want to record to choose a goof film speed.
  • Lents: to know wich lent is perfect us, we have to know the distance between camera and place recorded, and the light of the area. We could distinguish:
    • Fixed iris: to cameras located outside where light is stable.
    • Manual variable iris: to cameras located inside where the light could change.
    • Autoiris: it´s perfect to cameras located outside, where they auto- adjust to get always a good quality, ilumination doen´t care.
    • Fixed lents: we choose them when we know perfectly that this lent is correct. After that, it couldn´t be changed.
    • Varifocales: cuando el campo de visión es inseguro y debemos colocar primero el sistema para definirlo, recurriremos a las cámaras varifocales. Éstas permiten modificaciones posteriores.
    • Varifocal lents: when the recorded area isn´t clear, first we have to installa a system to define it, that we´ll get varifocal cameras. They allow to do following changes.
    • Zoom: Perfect cameras when we need to take close and far images alternately.


Otro de los componentes esenciales en el sistema de CCTV son los monitores.  Sin tener tantas opciones como en las cámaras, hay varios elementos que debemos tener en cuenta. La división básica que nos encontramos son:

Other important components of CCTV system are the sreens. There aren´t many options like cameras, but there are some element that we have to keep in mind. Basic divison is:

  • Black and white: this sreen give us a better resolution.
  • Colour: with this screen we´ll watch the things better.

If we need to watch  a lot of details, we´ll need a great resolution, that we´ll select a black/white screen. But if we want to identify things and/or people, we´ll get a colour screen.

Sreen size is a element to keep in mind. Measuring is made by inches and we keep in mind the screen diagonal. The sizes most used are the 9″ (23cm) and 12″(31). Also there are smaller screen, 5″ and 7″, to watching systems.

We could watch some cameras in the same screen if we use QUAD compressor and multiplexor. This technology digitalises the imagen and after that, each imagen is compressed in each existing quadrant. The sign is synchronised and we could watch at the same time, 4 different cameras.


CCTV system has different components conected each other. It doesn´t mean that all wires are correct, anywhere is good to put wires, or you need wires in your installation.

So, transmission could be done by:

  • Coaxial wire: this cable avoids elctromagnetic interferences beyond 50kHz. If we use this wire, it has to be fixed, minimum, 30cm apart others. Interference is showed with horizontal lines that cross the screen from the end of it until its top.
  • UTP wire: it used to installations where the distance beteween components is 200 meters and more. A wire could connect until 4 cameras. If we use it with system where needs 70 meter of wiring, we´ll reduce the cost of instalaltion.
  • Wireless link:  this system allow a good transmisson along 100 and 800 meters. Usual frecunecy is 1Ghz and 10GHz. Although a 6Mhz or 7Mhz is enough to get a good quality.


We have two big groups of recording equipment:

  • Analogue: although we have a system that records digitally, we´ll have an analogue system if the image transmission is made by wire.
  • Digital: we could watch the images from anywhere and don´t need to wire a screens network.

If we add some components like multiplexo, we could see until 32 cameras in the same screen. Everythin at the same time.


These are the  essential faeatures you have to keep in mind when you go to choose the CCTV components:

  • How many cameras you system accepts?
  • How many images per second could the system record?
  • Storage capacity.
  • What is the input to audio recording?
  • Movement detection.
  • Recording by date, day and hour.
  • Alarm input.
  • Images sizes: 160x120px, 320x240px, 640x480px.
  • Types and number of output
  • Remote connection by networr: web browser or client software.
  •  Recording speed options.

guía protección datos personales

This guide wants to help you to understand the present law Reglamento Europeo y del Consejo de 27 de Abril del 2016 2016/679. So, we´re going to show the citizens rights about protection datas in EU. This information considers the rights form the law Ley Orgánica 3/2018 of 5th December of2018, too.


Some years ago, before masive use of Internet and computing,  information was stored by company, like personal data, was limited. Files was composed by address, ID number, marital status and telephone number.

Step by step, administration and private companies added more and more information to their files, datas like: bank details, credit card details, email, health information and life styles.

Last years, incorportation of datas to this kind of files has been masive. New tools to process these datas and new technologies have been a truly revolution in our society. Many times we give more information that it´s required. Then, they could know all of our insterests, family situation, work situations… So, it has been necessary to develop a new European Regulation to limit this activity. Especially to fix civil and penal responsabilities.


Development of new technologies has done necessary to update the European Regulation 46/1995 of 24/11/1995, with a new Regulation and a lay Ley Orgánica 3/2015 of 5th December to Data Protection.

These new limitations weren´t well accepted by some USA companies, that wanted the autocontrol about data protection.  Some of them like Facebook, Google or Apple never felt good with kind of limitations. In spite of this, they offered their services to UE members.

To avoid this control, they joined under SAFE HARBOR agreement. It meant that the comany received  a “presumption of adapation”  to avoid the limits of European Regulation.

Fortunately, the EU Court, 6th October of 2015, found SAFE HARBOR invalid, then the companies had to get a protection of users rights and to adapt their service to new regulation.


The purpose of Regulation  46/1995 of 24/11/1995, the European Purpose and Conceil of 27th April of 2016 and Spanish Law 3/2018 del 5th December of 2018 is:

  •  To protect personal datas.
  • To protect the human rights.
  • To control the information about personal data.

The laws are created beacuse the companies store too much information. These laws come late, but the speed of technologies does complicate to forsee to situations.

EU members have new laws to protect and to make companies inform previously about the datas that they store. Also the laws make companies use properly the information, respect the law and keep safe  the files that they manage.

The file managers have to give clear information, before and after to collect personal datas. Also they have to inform if the infomation takes a risk.


Kids have a special protection. This treatment is legal when the agreement is given by the legal guardian. The agreement has to be clear by the legal guardian.

Some personal datas always must be prohibited to proccess. We are talking about ethnic details, politics, religious, sexual or genetic details. It could be an exception when there is a explicit agreement to:

  • To have a affiliation to some services.
  • To protect vital people´s interests.

Special attention has the medical datas that are necessary to evaluate the work capacity, medical diagnosis, etc. Workers know the results of medical test , but the company couldn´t access to them. The only result shall be known if the worker could develop correctly his work or not.

People have to know:

  • Who is the file´s owner.
  • Which datas are stored.
  • Which is the file purpose.
  • Which are the possible recipients.
  • How long are the data going to be sotered

If the datas are collected without the authorizations of people, they could carry out their rigjts to know where the datas come from.

The interested person has always the right to change the imprecise datas, and to supress them.


It has been necessary to create, in Spain, a control authority: AGENCIA DE PROTECCIÓN DE DATOS ESPAÑOLA. The agency watchs over the respect and compliance of those laws. To be sure about this compliance, it has been necesassry to create some penalise laws.

Companies have to define who are the file responsibles and whis is their liability.

The Regulations sets 3 different levels to sort  the infractions: mild, serious, so serious. Pescription deadlines are:

  • 3 years to “So Serious” penalties.
  • 2 year to “Serious” penalties.
  • 1 year to “Mild” penalties.

The files responsible have to keep safe all the registered datas. Law unfulfilment has a penalty until 20.000.000 € or 4% of  invoicing.

Big companies has been setenced with millionaire penalties beause they did bad use of information. Also, small companies are sentenced beacuse they send emails to clients and breaking thery rignts, as you could check in this link.


Newness of this law is the forget right.  Citizens could require to delete the obsolete or inexact information, even though it was true. It´s never be something easy. Sometimes, it usally prevails the right information above the personal rights, especailly if we talk about famous and public person.

Also, we could order the forget right when the datas have been collect by illict ways or without authorization.


Overall, companies could collect the required datas to develop their activity. The could do it if the worker privacy is not invaded.

First hot point is to collect images from work areas or work vehicles.  Usually, this practice is allowed if the cameras respect the Agencia de Protección de Datos´s rules. Recordings have to be justified and and don´t invade the workers privacy. These recordings don´t catch sounds and the cameras couldn´t be installed in toilets or relaxing areas.

In these moments, geolocations are very important to the company. Devices intalled in work vehicles could collecy movement information. It´s logical if  these datas are necessary to develop activities. Devices never could catch sounds.

Cameras installation or geolocations device have to be notified previously. It is illegal to have hidden sytem without previous information.


Agencia Española de Protección de Datos has an easy and practical guide to inform about all you need to install security cameras. You could take a look this link.

With the new regulations, you don´t have to register the installation at the Agencia Española de Protección de Datos. It has been replace for a file with the resposible and activities details. It has to be aviable to autorities required.

The security cameras have to be indicated on the entrances. Then, affeted people always know tthat there are cameras working and they look the informative pannel. This pannel has to inform about responsible´s file details.

Storage of these images musn´t exceed 30 days,  except images collect from Police and they are neccesary to investigations.

If there are people want to access the installation, the responsible has to make a record of the person that wants to access and a photo of him. The responsible never gives access to images form other persons.

Some companies or public departments have to be obliged to install a surveillance system. For example, electric or water supply companies, bank sector, jewellery shops or security companies.  They have to obey the sector regulations.

Communities could install security cameras in private areas. They have to limit the records to accesa areas, public streets. This images couldn´t be watched on communal channels.


Averías frecuentes CCTV

When you need to display images form a security camera, sometimes and often you couldn´t do it. Security cameras to surveillance or access control need a maintenance to dicrease the risk and failures. We´re going to show you the common failures that we use to find.


fallo eléctrico

Cameras and recordings need a electric supply. If the supply system fails, it couldn´t store the images.

Our suggestion is that you install a SAI ( Ininterrupted Supply System) that gives electricity to recording when there is a electric failure. Also you will get to keep safe the electronic devices.


Hard Disk  stores the images, it´s call  HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and ithas a limit capacity. When it´s full, the images are rewriten wih the new récords.disco duro averidado The number of rewritings is variable and as you know, everything has a lifetime. So sometimes the system is connected, cameras could be displayed but they aren´t been recording in the hard disk.


Recording takes images from different installedcameras. It processes and stores them during programmed time.cámara lente sucia Sometime the problem could be caused because the camera hasn´t electric supply or the energy power is damaged.

Sometimes you could find dirty or unfocused lens. It happens when cameras are localed on outside areas. You have to check and clean frecuently the lens to get always a good quality images.


It´s usual that security cameras are connected to recordings by a 5/6 wire or UTP wire. These wires could be installed inside a pipe and to cross cable deterioradothough union box. Humidity could damage, passing of time, the material of wiring.

Also, it´s usual that rodents brake the wiring and they leave the recording without connection . 


Security cameras are supplied by low voltage. It means that we need a littlefuente alimentación averiada trasnformer between the outside power supply and our device. Sometime, the problem comes from this transformer, like everything it has a lifetime too.

For all these reasons we suggest to do a regular and programmed maintenace of your CCTV systems. If yoy don´t do it, maybe when you´ll need to get some images,  your equipment shall not to be recording.

cámara de videovigilancia security cameras

It is difficult to have a video surveillance system well adapted to our needs. This sector has a large range of posibilities, so we could choose since a simple camera until  tricky installations with domotic devices.

Let´s go to see cameras, a device with a lot of posibilities and versions. What kind of cameras are there? What have we to know about them?… Today, we´re going to explain averything.


We could be lost inside the ocean of different models, so we have to be clear with the use of cameras.

To start the selection and dismiss models, we could think about the angle view that we´ll need. Then, we´ll know if we have to looking for big angle cameras, 360º, etc.

If we need something more sofisticated, we could find cameras that detect movements, or night view cameras.

Always you have to bear in mind cameras have to be configured, so if you get ones with easy setting, it´s avoid you to contact with qualified people to work them.


We´ll show you a cameras listing that you could find:

  • Inside Cameras: They are cheapest and easiest models that you´ll find.
  • Movement or Zoom Cameras: these are the best cameras if you want to control large areas.
  • Night View Cameras: they use a led system to get a good quality. These devices are so expensive.
  • Hiding Cameras: we are talking about integrated cameras inside different objets. They are used to police investigations and they are usefull to that.
  • IP Cameras: they are the most popular model at the moment. They could send images by Internet.
  • Tamper-proof Cameras: they have fixed cover mades by a strong material.
  • WIFI/Wireless Cameras: say goodbye to complex system and meters of wiring. These cameras work by batteries and don´t need power supplier.
  • Outside Cameras: they seem a tamper-proof camera but their are made to hold out bad weather.

Other listing is about the location. Then, we´ll have:

  • Cube Cameras: to outside areas.
  • Box Cameras: to inside areas.
  • Bullet Cameras: they are perfect to outside areas.
  • Domo Cameras: they are ready to outisde and inside areas as well.


There are some elements to bear in mind when we´ll fix our new cameras:

  • We have to find a visible place, then we´ll get a deterrent effect to thieves.
  • A great place to fix the cameras is the access ways. We have to be care that cameras don´t take image of private areas.
  • Perfect height is around 2.5m, we´ll get a great angle to have a good view and control.


A videosurveillance system could give you great advantages:

  • Since psychological view, a CCTV system could give you an extra calm and you´ll feel safier. It´s a derrent element.
  • We could control everything. The cameras record every moment 24/7.
  • To get a surveillance system doen´t mean that you have to pay a lot of money.  You´ll find a differents prices, since a simple installation until complex with domotic devices.
  • Images recorded give us aditional information to help with community problems.


Probably, when you ´re goin to get a camera, you could buy a complete CCTV kit.  It´s a great option, that you´ll find everyting to have and manage a surveillance system. There are some elements you will bear in mind:

  • Recorder: it informs about number of channels, cameras that system shall have.
  • Connectivity: today the WIFI CCTV is the best option.
  • Image Quality: we suggest to get a HD camera to 1080 px.
  • Hard Disk : to save the images, 1TB is enought to 8 channels instalation.

We hope to clear your mind and help you to get a good decision.
