CCTV Installation Dartford Kent (DA1): Security cameras and CCTV systems in Dartford have become a common occurrence over the last 10 years due mostly to ever reducing costs and improvements in technology. But a badly installed CCTV system may not offer the security benefits that you are interested in. It is highly recommended that if you're thinking of installing security cameras on your property, you use the knowledge and experience of an experienced CCTV installation company in Dartford.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - The conventional CCTV system which can have multiple cameras feeding into fixed recording equipment. They are able to record still images or continuous video footage, save them to an on-site Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring via smartphone or computer. The DVR will have an option to copy stored data to an external device, such as a USB stick, or may have an inbuilt CD or DVD recorder to permit images and video to be handed to the authorities as criminal evidence. While a lot of DVR's have an internet connection as standard, they are designed to work as standalone systems.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - These cameras can be linked to a wide area network, a local intranet or via the internet to provide recording and monitoring. The DVR in an IP CCTV system has got a secured gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, while at the same time being able to connect via an internet router for monitoring and viewing purposes. IP cameras can additionally send video, alarm notifications and pictures direct to your mobile, thus adding a supplementary security layer by stopping an intruder or burglar from destroying evidence on an on-site DVR. Security must be correctly set-up to avoid undesired individuals from observing your images.
Cloud Based Systems - These CCTV cameras record to remote storage based in the internet "cloud". Both IP and analogue systems can use cloud based technology along with their standard recording functions. Cloud recording normally has a yearly or monthly fee which is determined by the amount of space required on the servers and whether or not you need 24 hour monitoring by a security firm.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern CCTV cameras often come complete with integrated infrared lights for low light conditions. Any infrared CCTV camera will record video in black and white in the night time and at a somewhat lower resolution than those of the device's daylight footage. If there's a large difference in resolution, it might also be possible to put in additional security lighting with specialist lamps that will produce something close to natural light. These offer you the best possible options for recording colours under artificial lighting, and can be configured to only light up if movement is picked up by your cameras.
Be mindful if you're using traditional security lighting with cameras, so you don't annoy next door neighbours or shine directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
If your CCTV system records any public areas or a neighbouring property you're subject to Data Protection Act regulations. This Act doesn't mean that the use of CCTV cameras are illegal, but any data stored must be safeguarded from potential misuse for any individual who appears in the footage.
If your CCTV is able to record even a small view of a public area, the Information Commissioner's Office has specific requirements on informational signage and data protection. A certified CCTV installation contractor in Dartford will guarantee that all legal requirements are satisfied with regards to recording public areas and positioning cameras, which a do it yourself installation may not completely follow.
You should not need planning permission for your exterior CCTV security cameras unless you live in a national park, you're placing them onto a listed building, you live in a conservation area or you're in a place of special scientific interest. Planning permission can be sidestepped on the vast majority of other dwellings in Dartford providing the lights and cameras don't jut out from your outside walls by more than a metre and they're positioned at least 2.5m from the ground.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget is you should find a CCTV system that satisfies your requirements. From a simple inside camera to monitor entry and exit, to a multiple IP camera system, with motion detecting alarm linked devices and high definition recording. A specialist CCTV company in Dartford will examine your particular prerequisites and install a camera system that fits your needs and circumstances.
They will also make certain your spending budget isn't overstepped or try and sell you equipment that is not really required. You should count on the highest possible levels of service for any installation from an experienced CCTV company, no matter how much you are prepared to spend. You should always get itemised quotations from at least three different companies and ensure that you fully understand the equipment and service that they're providing.
Certain locations might require discrete cameras, whilst others might call for a more noticeable presence to act as a deterrent to potential intruders. A skillfully fitted CCTV security system has been shown through police interviews with ex-burglars to offer the biggest deterrent to would be intruders.
It may be the case that you've bought an off the shelf CCTV security system and need expert assistance with the installation process. You do not need to have purchased your CCTV equipment directly from your local Dartford professional security company to be able to have them set it up on your behalf. With their knowledge of the different CCTV cameras available, they're likely to be informed about any model you have purchased, and will quickly and efficiently set up and install your equipment.

If you've got non-British Standard equipment installed and it does not live up to the quality levels offered by the company, or even your own expectations, you may find you have difficulty in rectifying the situation later.
