Analogue Equipment - The traditional CCTV setup which can have multiple cameras feeding into a fixed recording device. They're able to record continuous video or still images, save them to a locally sited Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and the DVR can also be connected to the internet for monitoring remotely using a laptop or smartphone. Video can be copied to a DVD/CD or USB memory stick for police inspection where necessary. The connection to the web is entirely optional, as these CCTV installations are intended to operate as a standalone system.

Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Cameras can be connected to a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet for providing recording and monitoring. Each camera has a unique IP address through which they're linked to a DVR or computer system. The advantage with IP cameras is the capacity to record video and images to another location, such as your mobile, so any relevant video data cannot be deleted on-site by an intruder. It should be stressed that security features such as passwords should be strong enough on IP equipment and cameras to stop any unwanted access to your CCTV recordings.

Cloud Based CCTV Systems - CCTV cameras use an internet connection via an encrypted server to store all images and video in what is known as the "cloud". Provided that your CCTV system is able to connect to the web, either by means of the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they'll have the ability to use cloud storage. Cloud recording usually comes with a monthly or annual fee which will be determined by the amount of space required on the servers and whether you need 24 hour monitoring.

Modern CCTV cameras often come complete with built in infrared lights to allow for dark conditions. Any infrared camera will record video in black and white in the night time and at a somewhat lower resolution when compared to the device's daylight recordings. It's possible, if you find your resolution at night is not good enough for your requirements, to put in specialist lamps that create a better light source for your cameras. When combined with a CCTV camera system this lighting delivers a brighter source of light and can also be programmed to light up only when your camera senses motion in its field of view.

Take care if using security lighting with cameras, so you don't aggravate neighbours or shine lights directly onto roads.


If your CCTV system captures footage from any part of public areas or a neighbour's property or garden you're governed by Data Protection Act legislation. This does not make them illegal to use, it simply means that all captured recordings are subject to the appropriate legislation.
