CCTV Installation Canterbury Kent (CT1): With improvements in technology and ever falling costs, CCTV cameras have become widespread in Canterbury on both commercial and residential buildings. An incorrectly sited CCTV system might not however provide you with the sort of security benefits that you're searching for in your property. It is highly recommended that if you're looking at installing CCTV cameras on your propertyin Canterbury, you use the knowledge and experience of an experienced CCTV installation service.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - These are the standard setups that can monitor and record activity using multiple cameras. They basically record images and video to local Digital Video Recorders (DVR) and can provide an internet link for remote viewing via your tablet, smartphone or PC. The DVR will have the facility to transfer stored data across to an external storage device, such as a USB flash drive, or could have an inbuilt DVD or CD recorder to enable video and images to be given to the relevant authorities for evidence purposes. The connection to the internet is entirely optional, because these CCTV installations are designed to perform as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol Systems - Wireless CCTV cameras hook up to local equipment via their own network (intranet), or can connect to an internet router for the transfer of their recorded video. The DVR in an IP system has a secure gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, while additionally having the capability to connect through a router for monitoring purposes. One of the benefits of IP cameras is the ability to record images and video to another location, such as your mobile, so that any identifying data cannot be deleted on-site by an intruder. It has to be emphasised that passwords and other security features must be strong enough on IP cameras and equipment to stop any unwarranted access to your CCTV recordings.
Cloud Systems - CCTV cameras use an online connection via a secure encrypted server to store and save all video and images in what is known as the "cloud". Both IP and analogue systems can use cloud technology as well as their standard recording features. Such CCTV systems are normally used in combination with monitoring companies who charge an annual or monthly fee to keep a close eye on your property in Canterbury.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern CCTV cameras often come complete with in-built infrared illumination to allow for dark conditions. Any infrared CCTV camera will record black and white video at night and at a fractionally lower resolution than those of the device's daytime footage. It's quite possible, if you find your resolution at night does not meet your expectations, to set up special security lamps that produce a natural light source for your CCTV system. These offer you the best possible options for recording colours in artificial light conditions, and can also be configured to only come on if movement is picked up by your cameras.
Be mindful if using security lighting with CCTV, so you don't irritate neighbours or shine directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV systems which capture images over the perimeter of your property, onto the main street or into a nearby garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This Act doesn't mean that the use of CCTV system are illegal, but any recordings stored must be safeguarded from possible misuse for anybody who appears in the video recordings.
The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) can provide guidance on your legal obligations with regards to the monitoring and recording of public or neighbouring areas, which includes particular information regarding signage to passers-by of your use of CCTV. You can guarantee all legal obligations are satisfied by choosing a competent CCTV service in Canterbury for the installation of your CCTV system.
Planning permission for any CCTV placed on the exterior of your home might be necessary if you live in a national park, you live in a conservation area, you are in a place of scientific interest or you are putting them on a listed building. Planning permission can be sidestepped on most other buildings in Canterbury providing that the cameras and lights don't stick out from your exterior walls by more than 1 metre and they are installed at least 2.5 mtrs from ground level.
PICKING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM

The most inexpensive camera system may still provide remote monitoring and recording from only one camera, whilst a multi camera, motion detecting system linked to your intruder alarm and remotely monitored by a specialist company, will clearly be at the high end of the budget range.
