CCTV Installation Dover Kent (CT16): The technology improvements in security and CCTV cameras, and their ever reducing prices, means they are an increasingly common sight on commercial and residential premises in Dover. Yet a poorly installed CCTV system may not provide the security benefits that you're interested in. If you're looking at security improvements by installing a CCTV system it is strongly suggested you use a certified and professional CCTV installation company in Dover.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - The traditional CCTV setup which can have a multi-camera installation feeding into fixed recording equipment. They're able to record continuous video or still images, save them to a locally sited DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be linked to the internet for monitoring remotely using a PC or smartphone. The DVR will have an option to transfer the data stored to an external storage device, such as a USB drive, or might have a CD or DVD recorder inbuilt to enable video and images to be handed to the police for evidence purposes. The web connection is entirely optional, since these CCTV setups are designed to work as a standalone system.
IP Cameras - Wireless cameras connect to a local device via their own network (intranet), or can connect to an internet router for the transfer of their recorded video. The DVR within an IP CCTV system has a secure gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, while additionally having the capacity to connect via an internet router for viewing and monitoring purposes. Having the capability to send notifications to your smartphone is a huge advantage of IP systems, and the video and still images can also be saved on your device for extra security. Security has to be set-up properly to avoid other people from tapping into your recorded footage.
Cloud Based CCTV - Employ a secure encrypted gateway to record camera footage to "cloud" storage. Provided that your CCTV system can connect to the internet, either by means of a router as in IP cameras, or via the DVR in an analogue system, they'll be capable of accessing cloud based storage. Cloud recording usually comes with a monthly or yearly fee which is determined by how much space is required on the servers and whether you need 24 hour monitoring by a security company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most CCTV cameras on offer nowadays come with some sort of infrared lighting built in to support video recording for even the darkest of locations. Infrared cameras record black and white images but will still deliver similar resolution to that recorded in daylight. If you consider that the resolution produced by infrared cameras is not clear enough for your requirements, you could always install extra lighting to generate a natural light. When linked with a CCTV camera system these lamps deliver a brighter source of light and can also be programmed to light only when a camera detects motion in its vicinity.
Be cautious if using traditional security lighting with CCTV cameras, so as not to disturb neighbours or shine light directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
CCTV cameras that record or monitor your own property are exempt from the Data Protection Act except when they capture footage from a neighbouring property or a public area; regardless how minimal the captured area may be. This Act doesn't mean the use of cameras are illegal, however any records stored on the system must be safeguarded from potential misuse for anyone who is captured in the footage.
The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) can provide advice on the regulations in regards to the recording of public areas, which includes precise instructions regarding disclosure notices to passers-by of your use of a CCTV system. A professional CCTV installation contractor in Dover will guarantee that all legal obligations are met in regards to siting cameras and recording public areas, which a do it yourself installation might not fully conform to.
If your property is in an area of scientific interest, is in a national park, is listed or is in a conservation area, you will have to double check with the local authority whether planning permission is required. You should be able to avoid the need for planning permission if you lighting and camera system is mounted at least 2.5 mtrs above ground level and doesn't project by more than a metre from your property's walls.
