CCTV Installation Gateshead Tyne and Wear (NE8): Security cameras and CCTV systems in Gateshead have become a common sight over the last ten years thanks mainly to reduced costs and technology improvements. However all CCTV systems don't offer the same degree of security, particularly if the equipment has been improperly installed. If you're looking at ways to improve your security by fitting a CCTV system it's recommended you use an experienced CCTV installation contractor in Gateshead.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - The traditional CCTV system which can have a multi-camera installation fed into a fixed recording device. Analogue style systems can be installed to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and transmit them to a locally sited Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for storage and viewing. Video can be transferred to a CD/DVD or USB drive for police inspection if neccessary. The web connection is entirely optional, because these CCTV installations are intended to perform as a standalone system when necessary.
IP Cameras - These cameras can be connected with a local intranet, a wide area network or through the internet for providing recording and monitoring. Each of the cameras has got its own independent IP address and connects to a gateway on a DVR or computer system. Having the capability to send notifications to your mobile is a major advantage of IP cameras, and the video and images can be saved onto your device for extra security. Security must be perfectly set-up to avoid unwelcome people from viewing your footage.
Cloud Systems - CCTV cameras use an internet connection via an encrypted and secure server to store all images and video footage in what they call a "cloud". Both analogue and IP systems are able to use cloud technology along with their primary recording features. To store data in the cloud typically requires a monthly or annual payment and is determined by how much data you intend to store, and whether or not you want your videos monitored by a professional CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern CCTV cameras will often come complete with built in infrared lights for operating in low light conditions. The images recorded by an infrared may be of a marginally diminished resolution in comparison with those taken in full daylight and they will always be in black and white due to the peculiarities of low light recording equipment. It's possible, if you find the resolution at night is not good enough for your needs, to fit specialist lamps that produce a natural light source for your CCTV system. These provide the best possible options for recording colours in artificial light conditions, and can be configured to only turn on if your camera detects movement.
Motion sensor security lighting can be employed alongside CCTV but, as is the case with any such lighting they should not shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists or into neighbour's properties.
CCTV AND THE LAW
CCTV systems that monitor or record your property aren't covered by the Data Protection Act except when they record images from any areas of public, or neighbour's property; no matter how modest the area covered might be. This does not mean you're not allowed to use your CCTV cameras or record any activity, but it does mean that any video footage must be safeguarded in agreement with the regulations.
There are specific guidelines on informational signage for your CCTV system if you are going to be recording a public place or an area belonging to somebody else, and you should contact the Information Commissioner's Office for advice. You can guarantee all legal obligations are satisfied by choosing a certified CCTV installation firm in Gateshead for the installation of your CCTV system.
If your property is in an area of scientific interest, is listed, is in a conservation area or is within a national park, you'll need to check with your local authorities if planning permission is required. You will be able to avoid planning permission if any camera and lighting system is installed at least 2.5 mtrs above ground level and does not project by more than one metre from the walls of your house.
CHOOSING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
It should be easy enough to find a good CCTV camera system that suits your security prerequisites and also fits your spending budget. The most inexpensive system may still offer you remote monitoring and recording from only one camera, while a multi camera, motion detecting system linked to your alarm and monitored remotely by a specialist company, will of course be at the top end of the budget range. A genuine and experienced CCTV installer in Gateshead will only install a system that fits your particular situation.
A trustworthy Gateshead company will also do everything feasible to make certain costs are kept within your budget constraints, without the need for shortcuts. You should be able to expect the highest possible levels of service for any CCTV installation, irrespective of how much you are prepared to spend. Always get price quotes from at least 3 different installers and make sure that you understand fully the equipment and service that they are offering.
Certain places may need discrete cameras, while others might call for a more visual presence to act as a deterrent to burglars. It has been shown through insurance interviews with ex-burglars and police reports, that carefully-located, expertly installed, and highly visible CCTV systems are the most effective deterrent to opportunistic burglars.
Maybe you have bought a CCTV system from an online retailer or an electronics store, and require professional assistance in its fitting and setup. A local Gateshead alarm and security installation contractor will still fit your CCTV equipment, even if you didn't buy it directly from them. Whichever model and size of CCTV system you might have obtained, they will have the knowledge and expertise to effectively and quickly get it installed.
STANDARDS, TRAINING, ACCREDITATION AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
Surveillance camera equipment that's installed on your Gateshead property needs to comply with British Standards for CCTV, BS EN 62676. These specifications give guidance to installation teams on the requirements of CCTV security systems and how effectively they should operate. It isn't legally necessary to have a BS EN 62676 compliant CCTV system installed, but non-British Standard equipment mightn't have been tested thoroughly and if the system does not meet your high expectations, you may find that you have little if any available recourse.
The security sector is well regulated and any competent CCTV installer should have membership to a trade body, or have an affiliation with at least one trusted security association. The UK's primary security trade associations include:
Secure By Design - Created with the aim of reducing crime across Great Britain, the SBD is a government initiative led by the police. In order to strengthen the security of commercial and residential buildings all across Great Britain, the SBD work alongside designers, security companies and builders.
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - Within the security and CCTV industry, the BSIA (British Security Industry Association) is one of the most highly respected trade organisations. All members of the BSIA are vetted and comply with British Standards, ISO 9000 regulations for all types of security installations, and abide by all Codes of Practice for the industry.
The National Security Inspectorate - As an independent trade association, the National Security Inspectorate promotes the security industry by highlighting the most reputable security companies and CCTV installers in the country. The membership application process for the National Security Inspectorate is rigorous and involves demonstrations of a firm's capability to design, maintain and install a whole host of CCTV and other security systems. They also have to show suitability of vehicles, employee vetting, insurances, installation equipment, training records, and also the suitability of business premises, are all covered by the demanding requirements of their codes of practice. Membership is acknowledged as the highest possible standard by police forces, insurance companies and fire & rescue services in the UK.
