CCTV Installation Brixham Devon (TQ5): Security cameras and CCTV systems in Brixham have become a common sight over the last 10 years mostly due to improvements in technology and ever reducing costs. Yet the security benefits can be sacrificed if equipment is sited improperly or the layout of the CCTV system has been poorly designed. To eliminate any design issues and get the best possible performance from your security camera system it is recommended that you use a professional installation contractor in Brixham with a lot of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - Can have multiple cameras to monitor and record all aspects of your property, both outside and in. Analogue systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and transfer them to a local DVR (digital video recorder) for storage and viewing. Recorded video can be removed via USB drive or CD/DVD for police inspection if required. The web connection is entirely optional, because these CCTV setups are intended to function as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol Systems - The cameras can be connected with a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet to provide recording and monitoring. Each individual camera has got its own IP address through which they are connected to a DVR or computer system. IP systems can also send images, alarm notifications and video footage directly to your mobile, consequently adding an extra level of security by preventing a burglar from removing evidence from an on-site DVR. But, the security features and encryption need to be set up correctly to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your recordings.
Cloud Based Systems - Use an encrypted secure gateway to record to "cloud" storage. Both IP and analogue systems are able to use cloud technology in addition to their standard recording features. To store data in the cloud typically requires a yearly or monthly fee and is determined by the quantity of data you want to store, and whether or not you want your home in Brixham by a CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Today's CCTV cameras often come with built in infrared illumination to allow for dark conditions. The images captured by an infrared camera may be of a marginally poorer resolution than those taken in normal daylight and they will always be in black and white because of the nature of low light recording equipment. If there is a sizable difference in resolution, it might also be possible to install extra security lighting with special lamps to generate a natural light. These offer the best possible chance of capturing colours in artificial light conditions, and can be configured to only switch on if your camera detects movement.
Be careful if using traditional security lighting with cameras, so you don't affect next door neighbours or shine lights directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV cameras which capture images over the edges of the boundary of your property, onto the highway or into a nearby garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This Act doesn't mean that its illegal to use these CCTV system, however any records stored on the system must be safeguarded from possible misuse for anyone appearing in the footage.
If your CCTV system is recording even a small public area, the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) has precise requirements on signage and data protection. To forestall any problems from the legal obligations it is best to bring in a reliable and certified CCTV installation service in Brixham to install your CCTV cameras and any associated equipment.
Planning permission for a CCTV placed externally to your property may be needed if you're positioning them onto a listed building, you live in a national park, you're in a place of scientific interest or you live in a conservation area. Planning permission for most other properties in Brixham is not needed if they're sited more than 2.5m above ground level and they don't jut out more than 1 metre from your outside walls.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget you can find a CCTV camera system that satisfies your requirements. From a straightforward inside camera to monitor exit and entry, to a multi-point IP camera system, with motion detection alarm linked equipment and HD recording. A reliable CCTV installer in Brixham will evaluate all your needs and constraints to offer you the best CCTV equipment at an acceptable price.
A good Brixham company should also do all that they can to make sure costs are kept within your budget constraints, without needing to make any shortcuts. No matter how much money you invest in your CCTV system, a good installer will offer you the best possible service, from purchase through to installation and aftercare. Always get itemised price quotes from at least three different CCTV companies and ensure that you fully understand the equipment and service that they're providing.
You may wish to keep your surveillance cameras discrete from onlookers, or alternatively you may need them to act as a physical deterrent by being more visible. Remember that interviews conducted with ex-burglars by police and insurance companies indicate that expertly fitted CCTV equipment is the number one factor in encouraging a would be intruder to move on to a less well protected home.
It may be the case that you have bought an out of the box CCTV system and need assistance with the installation. You don't need to have purchased your CCTV system directly from your nearby Brixham professional security company in order to have them set it up for you. They'll be familiar and trained with all manufacturers of CCTV systems and will offer a professional service to fit and setup your system.
STANDARDS, ACCREDITATION, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When picking a CCTV security system for your Brixham property only consider the British Standard (BS EN 62676) kitemark. Such standards give installation teams guidance on the recommendations for CCTV systems and how well they should perform. Equipment can be used that does not have the British Standards mark, but the reliability and quality will not have been scrutinised and you may not have any recourse after the installation if it fails to meet your expectations.
To guarantee you're using the services of a reputable CCTV specialist you should always watch out for membership or affiliation with an established trade organisation within the industry. The following are the major UK security trade organisations:

As part of the certification process a security firm must show their ability in the installation, design and maintenance of CCTV systems and other security devices. A business must also prove that they have trained and vetted employees effectively, own suitable equipment and vehicles in their field of expertise, and that their company premises are suitable to promote the security industry in the best light. NSI members are recognised throughout the UK by the three emergency services, and by insurance providers, as upholding the highest quality of standards within the CCTV and security industry.
The Security Institute (SI) - The Security Institute is a recognised and respected organisation within the security industry, and hence has the largest membership of security technicians and contractors in the UK. It sets high standards for all of its 3000 plus membership in all areas of the security sector by promoting best working practices, and it guarantees the competency of its affiliates.
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - The British Security Industry Association is the trade organisation for the professional security industry in the UK. All its registered members must observe the security industry's British Standards Code of Practice for security and CCTV installation and comply with ISO 9000 regulations.

Searching For CCTV Installation Online
The inclination for many when looking to find a service or tradesman in Brixham, is to access the internet with their mobile or tablet.

Sorting through such results can be tricky and it may not all be as it appears initially.
Most householders in Brixham, when looking to find CCTV installers will go to a search engine and key in "Brixham CCTV installation", "CCTV installation in Brixham", "CCTV installation near me" or "CCTV installation Brixham". However, you'll shortly come to realise that the majority of the page one listings on the various search engines will likely be either PPC (Pay Per Click) results or entries for large trade portals such as My Builder, Quotatis, Rated People, TrustaTrader, My Hammer, Local Heroes or Checkatrade or web directories like Cyclex, Yell, Three Best Rated or Yelp.
For those CCTV installers in Brixham who have got their own website, the likelihood is they'll be languishing on page two or three of the listings, and you will have to look past the first page alone. There is little bad about trying out tradesman vetting websites like Rated People or Checkatrade, because many CCTV installers in Brixham haven't got their own individual websites.
