Analogue CCTV Equipment - These are the traditional setups which can monitor and record activity using a multi-camera installation. Analogue style systems can be setup to take still frames or provide constant recording or video and transfer them to a local DVR (digital video recorder) for viewing and storage. If the police authorities need to see evidence that has been recorded on your system, it can readily be transferred over to a CD/DVD or USB for simple viewing. While many DVR's have a connection to the internet as standard, they are actually designed to work as a standalone system.

IP Systems - IP cameras connect with a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their images. Connected to a computer or DVR, each camera in the system has its own identity and IP address. One of the major pluses with an IP system is that the pertinent footage can't be removed or deleted by an intruder on-site, because images and video can be streamed to a remote location, for instance your smartphone. But, the security features and encryption have to be configured properly to prevent any unauthorised viewing of your cameras and their recordings.

Cloud Based CCTV - Cameras use an internet connection via an encrypted server to save and store all images and video footage in what is known as the "cloud". Although this might seem to be a significant advantage, both IP and analogue security systems can also benefit from "cloud" technology. Such systems are generally used along with monitoring companies who'll charge an annual or monthly fee to keep an eye on your property in Fowey.

Night time vision using infrared LED's comes as standard on the majority of CCTV systems. An infrared camera will record a black and white image but will still provide a similar resolution to that recorded in daylight. If there is a large difference in resolution, it's also possible to install extra security lighting with special lamps to generate a natural light. Such security lamps can generate "daylight" conditions for your system, as well as providing a bright light when any movement is picked up by your camera.

If you are using motion sensor security lights with a CCTV camera system, you have to make certain the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's homes and gardens, or shine straight onto a road.
