CCTV Installation Colwyn Bay Wales (LL29): The improvements in technology of CCTV cameras, and their reduced prices, means that they are commonplace on residential and commercial premises in Colwyn Bay. Yet a badly installed and designed CCTV system may well not offer the security benefits you are interested in. To eliminate any installment issues and get the best from your security system it's always best to use a professional Colwyn Bay installation service with CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - Can have a multi-camera installation to record all areas of your home, both inside and outside. They're able to record still images or continuous video, save them to a local DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring via smartphone or PC. Video clips can be transferred to a USB memory stick or CD/DVD for inspection by the police where necessary. Although a lot of DVR setups do have a web connection as standard, they are really designed to work as standalone systems.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Internet Protocol cameras connect to a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their recorded images. Each camera has its own IP address and links to a gateway on a DVR or computer system. Being able to send a live stream to your mobile is a major advantage of IP cameras, and the video and images can also be stored on your device for increased security. Security must be set-up correctly to avoid unwelcome individuals from observing your images and video.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - CCTV cameras make use of an internet connection via an encrypted and secure server to save and store all video footage and images in the "cloud". Any CCTV system, IP or analogue, that's got an internet connection has the capacity to store their video footage to a cloud based server and storage facility. These systems are typically used in combination with security monitoring companies who charge an annual or monthly fee to keep an eye on your property in Colwyn Bay.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most cameras on the market today come complete with some form of infrared lighting built in to support video recording in even the gloomiest situations. The images captured by an infrared might be of a slightly lower resolution when compared with those taken in daylight and they will always be in black and white because of the characteristics of low light recording devices. If you discover that the resolution using infrared cameras isn't sufficient for your requirements, you'll be able to install external lighting sources that provide a more natural light. These provide you with the best chance of recording colours under artificial lighting, and can also be configured to only light up if movement is detected by your cameras.
Be careful if using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so as not to aggravate next door neighbours or shine directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV systems which record footage across the perimeter of your property, into a neighbour's garden or onto the main street, now come under the Data Protection Act. This does not mean that they are illegal to use, it simply means that all captured footage is regulated.
There are specific guidelines on signs and notices for your CCTV camera system if you're going to be recording a public area or property belonging to another individual, and the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) should be contacted for advice. An experienced CCTV installation service in Colwyn Bay will guarantee that all legal obligations are satisfied with regards to positioning cameras and recording public areas, which a homeowner installation might not entirely conform to.
If your house is in a conservation area, is within a national park, is in an area of scientific interest or is listed, you'll need to check with your local authorities if planning permission is necessary. You should be able to avoid planning permission if any camera and lighting system is fitted at least 2.5 metres above ground level and does not project by more than a metre from your wall.
CHOOSING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
It should be easy enough to find a good CCTV system that satisfies your security prerequisites and also matches your budget. From a simple interior camera to capture entry and exit, to a multi-point IP camera system, with high definition recording and motion detection alarm linked devices.

You should be able to count on the highest possible levels of service for any CCTV installation, irrespective of how much you spend. It's generally advisable to get at least 3 different price quotes for the security system you want to put in.
Visible cameras offer a physical deterrent to criminals, yet hidden cameras with the right signs can be just like effectual in certain areas. It's been demonstrated through police reports and insurance interviews with ex-burglars, that well-positioned, expertly installed, and visible CCTV cameras are the best deterrent to potential burglars.
