CCTV Installation Dumfries Scotland (DG1): CCTV systems and security cameras have become a common occurrence in Dumfries over the last 10 years, due mostly to technology improvements and ever falling costs. An inaptly positioned CCTV system may not however provide the sort of security benefits that your are looking for in your property. If you're looking for improvements in security by installing a CCTV system it's recommended you use an experienced CCTV installation contractor in Dumfries.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - These are the conventional camera setups which can record and monitor using multiple cameras. They are able to record images and video to locally sited Digital Video Recorders (DVR) and can provide an internet link for remote viewing via your laptop or smartphone. Video clips can be removed via DVD/CD or USB flash drive for police inspection if necessary. These are intended to work as an independent CCTV system with an optional connection to the web.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Wireless CCTV cameras connect to local equipment through their own network (intranet), or can be connected to a router for the transfer of their recorded video. Each camera has its own IP address and links to a specific gateway on a DVR or computer system. IP systems also send notifications, video footage and images direct to your smartphone, therefore adding an extra security layer by stopping a burglar or intruder from removing evidence from a local DVR. Security needs to be set-up perfectly to avoid unwelcome people from tapping into your videos.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - These systems record to a remote location based in a so-called "cloud" "cloud". So long as your CCTV apparatus can connect to the internet, either by means of a router as in IP cameras, or via the DVR in an analogue system, it will have the ability to use cloud based storage. Cloud recording normally has a monthly or yearly fee which depends on the amount of space required on servers and whether or not you require remote monitoring.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night time vision using infrared LED lighting generally comes as standard on the vast majority of CCTV systems. Any infrared CCTV camera will record black and white pictures at night and at a slightly lower resolution than those of the device's daytime footage. If you consider that the resolution produced by infrared isn't sufficiently good for your needs, you may be able to install external lighting sources that provide something nearer to daylight. These lamps can create a daylight effect for your cameras, as well as providing a bright light when any movement is detected by the system.
If you're using motion sensor lights with a camera system, you have to make sure that the light doesn't overly shine on neighbour's gardens and property, or shine straight onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
If your CCTV cameras record any part of public areas or a neighbouring garden or property you're governed by Data Protection Act legislation. This doesn't mean you are not allowed to use your CCTV system or record any activity, but it does mean that any footage must be safeguarded in keeping with the legislation.
There are distinct requirements on informational signage for your CCTV system if you're monitoring and recording a public place or an area belonging to another individual, and the Information Commissioner's Office should be contacted for advice. A certified CCTV installation specialist in Dumfries will make sure that all legal obligations are satisfied with regard to the siting of cameras and recording public areas, which a homeowner installation may not entirely adhere to.
If your house is in an area of special scientific interest, is a listed building, is in a conservation area or is within a national park, you will need to check with the local authorities whether planning permission is necessary. Planning permission for the majority of other buildings in Dumfries will not be needed if they're sited more than 2.5m above the ground and they do not stick out more than one metre from your exterior wall.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget you should find a CCTV system that matches your needs. The most affordable camera system may still be able to provide remote monitoring and recording from a single camera, whilst a multi camera, motion detection system connected to your burglar alarm and remotely monitored by a specialist company, will clearly be at the top end of the budget scale. A scrupulous and certified CCTV installer in Dumfries will only put in equipment you need to fit your specific situation.
A decent Dumfries installer will also do everything possible to make certain that costs don't surpass your budget, without the need for shortcuts. You should be able to expect the highest levels of service for any CCTV installation, regardless of your budget. It is always a good idea to get a minimum of 3 different itemised estimates for the security system you want to put in.
Visible cameras offer a deterrent to burglars, yet discrete cameras with the correct signage can be just as effective in some situations. Be aware that interviews conducted with ex-burglars by police and insurance companies indicate that professionally installed CCTV is the number one deterrent in making a would be intruder consider a less protected house.
Maybe you have purchased a CCTV system from an online retailer or an electronics store, and require professional assistance in its fitting. Your local Dumfries alarm and security service will still install your CCTV system, even if you didn't buy it directly from them. With their knowledge of the different CCTV cameras available, they're likely to be familiar with the brand you've purchased, and will efficiently and quickly set up and fit your brand new equipment.
STANDARDS, ACCREDITATION, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When picking out a CCTV security system for your Dumfries property always watch out for the BS EN 62676 British Standard mark. The standards laid out in BS EN 62676 specifies the performance parameters for the apparatus, and suggestions on how best to install and site the CCTV security system for the best effect. CCTV equipment can be fitted that doesn't have the British Standards mark, but the quality and reliability won't have been tested and you may not have recourse after installation if it fails to meet your high expectations.
Trades-people, CCTV companies and technicians should be members of at least one recognised trade body within the security and camera industry. The principal trade organisations to look for are:
The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) - As an independent trade organisation, the National Security Inspectorate promotes the security sector by sanctioning top quality CCTV and security firms throughout Great Britain. The vetting procedure is rigorous and involves a company demonstrating their competence in the maintenance, installation and design of a wide range of security equipment. A security must also substantiate they have vetted and trained personnel effectively, own suitable equipment and vehicles in their field of expertise, and that their company premises are appropriate for promoting the security industry in its best light. NSI members are recognised across the UK and EU by the 3 main emergency services, and insurance providers, as holding the highest quality of standards in the CCTV and security industry.
Secure By Design (SBD) - Launched with the aim of crime reduction across the country, the SBD is a government backed police security initiative. Its goals are to strengthen the physical security of all properties by working with building firms, designers and security companies.
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - This is one of the biggest trade associations in the UK security industry. Every signed up member of the BSIA must be appraised and comply with British Standards, ISO 9000 regulations for security installations, and abide by all Codes of Practice for the industry.
The Security Institute (SI) - The SI is a recognised and respected body within the security industry, and thus has the largest membership of professional companies and contractors in the United Kingdom. The Security Institute has over three thousand members from every area of the security industry and promotes professional competence, best working practices and setting the highest security standards for all its membership.
