CCTV Installation Eastbourne East Sussex (BN20): CCTV systems and security cameras have become common in Eastbourne over the last ten years or so, thanks mainly to reduced costs and technology improvements. An incorrectly positioned CCTV system may not however provide you with the the high level of security that your are searching for in your premises. If you are looking at ways to improve your security by the installation of a CCTV system it is highly recommended you use an experienced and professional CCTV installation contractor in Eastbourne.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - These are the standard camera setups that can monitor and record over a multi-camera installation. They are capable of recording continuous video or still images, save them to a locally sited DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be connected to the internet for remote monitoring using a tablet or smartphone. The recorded images can be removed via USB flash drive or CD/DVD for inspection and identification of suspects by the police in any criminal investigation. While many DVR's do have an internet connection as standard, they are designed to function as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Wireless cameras hook up to local equipment through their own intranet (network), or can connect to an internet router for the transmission of their video signals. Each of the cameras has got its own independent IP address and links to a specific gateway on a computer system or DVR. The main advantage with IP systems is the capacity to record video and images to a remote location, including your smartphone, so that any relevant video data can't be deleted by the intruder on site. It must be emphasised that passwords and other security features must be strong enough on IP cameras and equipment to stop any unwanted viewing of your CCTV footage.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - Cameras employ an internet connection via an encrypted and secure server to store and save all images and video in what they call a "cloud". Provided that your CCTV apparatus can connect to the internet, either via the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they'll be capable of using cloud storage. The storing of data in the "cloud" usually involves a yearly or monthly charge and is based on how much data you wish to store, and whether or not you want your videos monitored by a professional CCTV security company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most CCTV cameras on offer today come with some form of infrared lighting built in to support recording in even the darkest areas. Any infrared camera will record black and white images during the hours of darkness and at a fractionally lower resolution than those of the camera's daytime footage. It's quite possible, if you discover your night vision resolution does not meet your objectives, to install special security lamps that yield a more natural light source for your cameras. When combined with a CCTV system these lights deliver a brighter source of light and can be adjusted to light up only when a camera senses motion in its vicinity.
Be mindful if using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so as not to disturb next door neighbours or shine directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV cameras which record footage across the perimeter of your property, onto the street or into a nearby garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This does not make them illegal to use, it simply means that any recordings you make are subject to the appropriate legislation.
If your CCTV system is recording even a small area of public land, the Information Commissioner's Office has specific requirements on signage and data protection. A certified CCTV installation service in Eastbourne will make sure that all legal requirements are satisfied in regards to recording public areas and positioning cameras, which a homeowner installation might not fully follow.
You probably will not need planning permission for your CCTV cameras unless you live within a national park, you live in a conservation area, you're mounting them on a listed building or you are in a place of scientific interest. Planning permission can be sidestepped on most other dwellings in Eastbourne as long as the surveillance cameras don't jut out from your external walls by more than a metre and they are mounted at least 2.5 mtrs from the ground.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
It should be easy enough to identify a CCTV system that suits your security requirements and also meets your spending budget. Your situation might mean that all you require is a solitary CCTV camera to cover your front entrance, while a larger house may require multiple cameras with motion detector technology that's connected to a security firm's monitoring service. A reputable security camera installation company in Eastbourne will evaluate all your requirements and constraints to supply you with the most effective CCTV system at the right price.
They will also make sure your budget isn't overstretched or try and sell you equipment that isn't necessary. It should not matter how much you spend on a CCTV system, an experienced installation company in Eastbourne will pride themselves on the highest level of service. You shouldn't accept the first price quote you're offered because it is always wise to get a minimum of three quotations from different companies.
Certain places may need discrete cameras, whilst others may need a more visible presence to act as a deterrent to intruders. It has been demonstrated through police reports and insurance interviews with ex-burglars, that carefully positioned, expertly installed, and highly visible CCTV cameras are the most effective deterrent to potential burglars.
It might be the case that you've purchased an out of the box CCTV system and need help with the installation process. You do not need to have bought your CCTV system from your local Eastbourne CCTV installers in order to have them install it for you. They'll be trained and familiar with all models of CCTV cameras and will offer a professional service to install and setup your system.
STANDARDS, TRAINING, ACCREDITATION AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When selecting a CCTV system for your Eastbourne property keep an eye out for the British Standard BS EN 62676 kitemark. This British Standard kitemark states how effectively a CCTV security system is supposed to function and offers recommendations on its installment to security technicians. If you've got non standard CCTV equipment installed and it does not live up to the level of quality usually provided by the company, or your own expectations, you might find it difficult to rectify the situation later.
To guarantee you're using a respectable CCTV installation company you should always look for affiliation or membership of a recognised trade body within the sector. The principal trade bodies to look for are:
The Security Institute (SI) - The Security Institute is a recognised and respected body within the security industry, and as a result has the largest membership of security technicians and companies in Great Britain. It sets very high standards for all of its 3,000 plus membership in all parts of the security industry by the promotion of best working practices, and it guarantees the competency of its affiliates.
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - This is one of the most highly regarded trade association for the professional security industry in the UK. BSIA members are trusted security contractors and companies who comply with all of the British Standards and ISO 9000 regulations, and follow the security industry's Code of Practice.
The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) - As an independent trade association, the National Security Inspectorate promotes the security industry by highlighting top quality CCTV and security firms in Great Britain. The NSI membership application is a strict procedure and involves a demonstration of a company's ability to install, design and maintain a variety of CCTV and other security systems. A business must also demonstrate they have trained and vetted personnel correctly, have suitable equipment and vehicles for their area of expertise, and that their business premises are suitable to promote the security industry in a good light. Police forces, insurance companies, and fire & rescue services in the UK and the European Union all acknowledge members of the NSI as having the highest possible working standards within the fire safety and security industry.
Secure By Design (SBD) - Launched with the aim of reducing crime across the country, the SBD is a government backed police security initiative. Its objectives are to improve the security of all properties by working with architects, security installers and construction firms.
