Ashtead CCTV Installation and Maintenance

CCTV Installation Ashtead Surrey (KT21): The technology improvements in security and CCTV cameras, and their reduced prices, means that they're a common occurrence on commercial and residential premises in Ashtead. Yet a poorly installed CCTV system may well not offer the security benefits you are looking for. It is strongly suggested that if you are thinking of installing security cameras on your property, you use the experience and knowledge of a competent CCTV installation firm in Ashtead.

TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS

Analogue CCTV - Can have a multi-camera installation to record all areas of your property, both inside and outside. Analogue style systems can be configured to take still frames or provide constant video recording and send them to a locally sited DVR (digital video recorder) for viewing and storage. The recorded videos and images can be transferred to a DVD/CD or USB drive for inspection and identification of suspects by police and other authorities in a criminal investigation. These are intended to work as an independent CCTV system with an optional connection to the internet.

IP Cameras - Wireless CCTV cameras hook up to local equipment using their own intranet (network), or can be connected to an internet router for the transmission of their recorded video. Every camera has its own IP address through which they're linked to a DVR or computer system. Having the ability to send a live stream to your smart phone is a major advantage of IP systems, and the still images and video can be saved onto your device for increased security. However, the encryption and security features have to be set up correctly to prevent any unauthorised viewing of your cameras and their recordings.

Cloud Based Systems - CCTV cameras employ an online connection via a secure encrypted server to store and save all images and video in the "cloud". So long as your CCTV system is able to connect to the web, either via a router as in IP cameras, or via an analogue DVR system, they'll have the capability to use cloud storage. Cloud recording typically comes with a monthly fee which will be determined by the amount of space required on the servers and whether you require remote monitoring by a security firm.

LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS

Today's CCTV cameras often come with built-in infrared lights for dark conditions. An infrared camera will record a black and white image but will still provide a comparable resolution to that recorded in full daylight. It is possible, if you find the resolution at night is too low for your requirements, to set up special security lamps that yield a natural light source for your cameras. These offer the best possible options for recording colours under artificial lighting, and can also be configured to only light up if your camera picks up movement.

If you are using motion sensor security lights with a CCTV camera, you must ensure that the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's gardens and property, or shine directly into any oncoming traffic areas.

CCTV AND THE LAW

If your CCTV system records any public areas or a neighbour's property or garden you're subject to Data Protection Act regulations. This Act doesn't mean that its illegal to use these cameras, however any records stored on the system must be safeguarded from possible misuse for any individual appearing in the video footage.

There are precise guidelines on informational signage for your CCTV system if you're going to be monitoring and recording a public place or an area belonging to someone else, and the Information Commissioner's Office should be contacted for advice. A professional CCTV installation service in Ashtead will guarantee that all legal obligations are satisfied with regards to recording public areas and the positioning of cameras, which a DIY installation may not entirely conform to.

You probably will not require planning permission for your exterior CCTV security cameras unless you live in a conservation area, you live within a national park, you're putting them onto a listed building or you are in a place of scientific interest. Planning permission for the majority of other houses in Ashtead will not be required if they are positioned more than 2.5 mtrs above ground level and they do not stick out more than one metre from your outside walls.

CHOOSING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM

Whatever your budget is you can find a CCTV camera system that satisfies your requirements. The least expensive system may still provide remote recording and monitoring from a single camera, whilst a multi camera, motion detecting system linked to your burglar alarm and monitored remotely by a specialist company, will of course be at the top end of the budget range. An experienced CCTV installer in Ashtead will examine your individual requirements and recommend a system that matches your circumstances and needs.

A decent Ashtead installer will also do all that they can to make certain costs don't surpass your budget, without the need for shortcuts. You should count on the highest possible levels of service for any installation from a professional CCTV company, no matter how much you spend. Always get quotes from at least three different installers and ensure you understand fully the equipment and service they are offering.
