Analogue style systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and send them to a local Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for viewing and storage. The DVR should have the facility to transfer the data stored to an external device, such as a USB flash drive, or might have a DVD or CD recorder inbuilt to allow video and images to be handed to the relevant authorities for evidence purposes. The web connection is optional, because these CCTV installations are designed to function as a standalone system when necessary.
Internet Protocol Systems - IP cameras connect with an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transmit their recorded images. Every camera has a unique IP address through which they're linked to a computer system or DVR. IP cameras also send video footage, pictures and alarm notifications straight to your smartphone, therefore adding an extra layer of security by stopping a burglar or intruder from removing evidence from a local DVR. Security has to be perfectly set-up to avoid unwelcome people from observing your recorded footage.
Cloud Systems - Employs a secure encrypted gateway to record footage to "cloud" storage. Both IP and analogue systems are able to use cloud based technology together with their standard recording capabilities. These systems are normally used in combination with security monitoring companies who charge an annual or monthly fee to keep an eye on your property in Bournemouth.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night vision through the use of infrared LED's normally comes as standard on the majority of CCTV systems. Any infrared camera will record video in black and white during the hours of darkness and at a somewhat lower resolution than those of the camera's daylight footage. If there's a big resolution difference, it may be possible to put in additional security lighting with special lamps that will produce something close to natural light. Such lighting can generate a daylight effect for your cameras, as well as delivering brighter lights when any motion is picked up by the system.
Motion sensor lighting can be employed with CCTV cameras nevertheless, as with any such lighting they should never shine straight onto neighbouring properties or blind drivers of oncoming vehicles even on private roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV cameras that capture images over the edges of the perimeter of your property, into a nearby garden or onto the street, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This doesn't mean that they're illegal, it simply means that any recordings that you make are subject to the regulations.
