CCTV Installation Harrow Greater London (HA1): The improvements in technology of CCTV cameras, and their ever falling prices, means they're commonplace on domestic and commercial properties in Harrow. A poorly sited CCTV system may not however provide you with the the high level of security that you're looking for in your premises. To eliminate any design issues and get the best performance from your security camera system it is best to use a professional installation contractor in Harrow with a lot of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - The standard CCTV system which can have multiple cameras fed into a stationary recording device. Analogue style systems can be configured to take still frames or provide constant recording or video and transfer them to a locally sited DVR (digital video recorder) for storage and viewing. The DVR should have the option to transfer the data stored across to an external storage device, such as a USB stick, or might have a CD or DVD recorder inbuilt to enable images and video to be given to the police as criminal evidence. The connection to the web is optional, since these CCTV setups are intended to function as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol Systems - IP cameras hook up with a wireless intranet or internet connection to transfer their recorded images. The DVR within an IP CCTV system has a secured gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, while additionally being able to connect through an internet router for viewing and monitoring purposes. Having the capability to send a live stream to your mobile is a big advantage of IP systems, and the images and video can be saved onto your device for added security. Security must be set-up correctly to avoid undesired individuals from observing your images and videos.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - CCTV cameras use an online connection via an encrypted server to store and save all video footage and images in what they call a "cloud". Any CCTV camera system, IP or analogue, that's got a web connection has the capability to store its video recordings to a cloud based server and storage facility. To store data in the "cloud" generally requires a monthly or annual fee and will be based on the quantity of data you need to store, and whether you want your property in Harrow by a professional CCTV security company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night vision by means of infrared LED lighting usually comes as standard on many CCTV cameras. Any infrared camera will record black and white pictures in the night time and at a marginally lower resolution when compared to the camera's daylight recordings. If there is a substantial resolution difference, it may be possible to install extra security lighting with special lamps that will generate a natural light. When attached into a CCTV security system this lighting generates a natural looking source of light and can also be programmed to light only when the camera perceives some movement in its field of view.
Be cautious if you're using security lighting with CCTV, so you don't disturb neighbours or shine directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Systems which monitor or record your own property aren't covered by the Data Protection Act except when they capture a neighbour's property or a public area; regardless how minimal the captured area may be. This doesn't mean you are not permitted to use your CCTV system or record activity on your property, but it does mean any recordings have to be secured in accordance with the legislation.
There are specific requirements on informational signage for your CCTV camera system if you are going to be recording a public area or property belonging to another person, and you should contact the Information Commissioner's Office for advice. An experienced CCTV installation company in Harrow will ensure that all legal requirements are met with regard to recording public areas and positioning cameras, which a do it yourself installation may not entirely conform to.
Planning permission for any CCTV system placed on the exterior of your property will need to be checked if you are in a place of scientific interest, you are putting them onto a listed building, you live in a national park or you live in a conservation area. In other properties in Harrow you can avoid planning permission by making sure your security cameras are mounted at least 2.5m above the ground and that they don't project out a distance of more than 1 metre.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Budgets shouldn't have to be a deciding factor in picking the ideal CCTV camera system for your house in Harrow and there are packages available to suit all tastes. From a basic inside camera to capture entry and exit, to a multi-point IP camera system, with high definition recording and motion detecting alarm linked equipment.

It's always good advice to get a minimum of 3 different itemised price quotes for the CCTV equipment you wish to put in.
You might want to keep your CCTV cameras discrete from the public eye, or alternatively you may require them to act as a physical deterrent by being noticeable. A well positioned CCTV system has been proven by interviews with ex-thieves to provide the biggest deterrent to would be intruders.
