CCTV Installation Godalming Surrey (GU7): CCTV systems and security cameras in Godalming have become a common sight over the last few years mostly due to ever reducing costs and improvements in technology. Yet the security benefits may be sacrificed if equipment is positioned improperly or the layout of the CCTV system has been poorly designed. To avoid any design issues and get the best from your security system it's best to use a professional installation service in Godalming with plenty of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - Can have multiple cameras to record activity over all aspects of your property, both externally and internally. They are able to record continuous video or still images, save them to a local DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be connected to the internet for remote monitoring via tablet or smartphone. Recorded video clips can be removed via USB drive or CD/DVD for police inspection if neccessary. The connection to the internet is entirely optional, since these CCTV setups are designed to work as a standalone system where necessary.
Internet Protocol Systems - The cameras can be linked to a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet to provide recording and monitoring. Every camera has got a unique IP address which is used to link them to a computer system or DVR. Having the ability to send a live stream to your smartphone is a major advantage of IP cameras, and the images and video can also be stored on your device for added security. It must be stressed that passwords and other security features have to be strong enough on IP cameras and equipment to stop any unwelcome access to your CCTV recordings.
Cloud Systems - These systems record to remote storage based in a so-called "cloud" "cloud". Any CCTV camera system, IP or analogue, which has a net connection has the ability to store its recordings to a cloud based server and storage facility. Cloud recording typically carries a monthly fee which depends on the amount of space required on the servers and whether or not you require 24 hour monitoring.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night vision through the use of infrared LED's comes as standard on many CCTV cameras. The images captured by an infrared may be of a slightly poorer resolution than those taken in normal daytime light and they will also always be in black and white because of the nature of low light recording. It's quite possible, if you find the night vision resolution doesn't meet your objectives, to install special security lamps that yield a natural light source for your cameras. These provide you with the most effective options for capturing colours under artificial lighting, and can be configured to only switch on if movement is picked up by your camera.
Take care if using security lighting with CCTV cameras, so you don't affect neighbours or shine light directly on road traffic.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Cameras that record or monitor your own property are exempt from the Data Protection Act except when they record images from a neighbouring property or a public area; no matter how minimal the captured area may be. This does not mean you're not allowed to use your cameras or monitor activity on your property, but it does mean that any video recordings must be secured according to the regulations.
There are particular guidelines on signs and notices for your CCTV camera system if you are going to be monitoring and recording a public place or an area belonging to some other person, and you should contact the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for advice. You can guarantee all legal requirements are satisfied by using a reliable CCTV installation firm in Godalming for the installing of your CCTV security system.
If your house is listed, is in a conservation area, is in a national park or is in an area of special scientific interest, you will have to check with your local authority whether planning permission is necessary. Planning permission can be avoided on the majority of other dwellings in Godalming so long as the surveillance cameras don't stick out from your outside walls by more than one metre and they are positioned at least 2.5 mtrs from ground level.
PICKING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
You should be able to identify a CCTV camera system that matches your security prerequisites and also meets your spending budget. Your situation might mean that all you require is a solitary CCTV camera to monitor your main entrance, whilst a larger house may need several cameras with motion detecting technology that's connected to a security firm's monitoring service. A certified CCTV company in Godalming will evaluate your specific requirements and fit a camera system that fits your needs and circumstances.
A professional Godalming CCTV installer will also stick rigidly to your spending budget and ensure that you wind up with the best CCTV camera system for your price range. Irrespective of how much you decide to spend on your CCTV equipment, a good Godalming company will provide you with the best service, from sales to installation and aftercare. You should not meekly accept the first price quote you get because it's always sound practice to obtain at least three itemised quotations from different CCTV companies.
Certain zones may need hidden cameras, whilst others may need a more noticeable presence in order to act as a deterrent to potential burglars. Remember that interviews held with ex-burglars by insurance companies and police demonstrate that professionally installed CCTV equipment is the top rated deterrent in encouraging a would be thief to think about a less well protected property.
If you've purchased CCTV equipment from an electronics shop or an online store, you can still get specialist assistance in its installation and configuration. Any local Godalming CCTV installation company will be willing to help you out even if you haven't bought the equipment from them. With their knowledge of the different CCTV cameras on the market, they're likely to be informed about the brand you've purchased, and will be able to swiftly and efficiently configure and fit your equipment.
STANDARDS, ACCREDITATION, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
You should always look out for CCTV systems that carry the BS EN 62676 (British Standard) for installation on your Godalming home. These standards give installation teams guidance on the recommendations for CCTV systems and how effectively they should operate. Equipment can be fitted that doesn't have the British Standards mark, but the quality and reliability will not have been evaluated and you might not have recourse after it has been installed if it fails to meet your high expectations.
The security sector is highly regulated and a reliable CCTV installation company should have membership of a trade organisation, or have an affiliation with one or more accepted security associations. The following are the primary UK security trade bodies:
Secure By Design - This government initiative is driven by police forces throughout the country for the reduction of crime. Secure by Design liaises closely with security installers, construction firms and architects to improve the physical security of industrial and domestic premises all over the country.

A company also has to provide data and records relating to; company and personal liability insurances, employee training and vetting, equipment calibration and maintenance, and also must show that the company premises are suitable for the NSI's exacting requirements. Fire & rescue services, insurance providers in the United Kingdom and the European Union all recognise NSI members as upholding the highest standards within the fire safety and security industry.
The British Security Industry Association - This is one of the largest trade organisations in Britain's security industry. All members of the BSIA have to be vetted and conform to British Standards, ISO 9000 regulations for security installations, and observe all Codes of Practice for the industry.
