CCTV Installation Inverness Scotland (IV1): The technology improvements in CCTV cameras, and their falling prices, means that they are widespread on commercial and domestic buildings in Inverness. An incorrectly installed CCTV system may not however provide the level of security that your are looking for in your premises. It is strongly suggested that if you're looking at installing surveillance cameras on your home or business premisesin Inverness, you use the experience and knowledge of an experienced CCTV installation service.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - Can have multiple cameras to monitor and record all areas of your home, both internally and externally. They are capable of recording continuous video or still images, save them to a local Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring via computer or smartphone. Video footage can be transferred to a USB flash drive or CD/DVD for police inspection if required. They are intended to work as an independent CCTV system without the need for an internet connection.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Cameras can be connected with a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet to provide monitoring and recording. The DVR in an IP CCTV system has a secure gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, while additionally having the capability to connect through an internet router for monitoring purposes. One of the advantages with IP cameras is the capability to record images and video to a remote location, including your smartphone, so that any relevant footage can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the security features and encryption have to be set up correctly to prevent any unauthorised viewing of your cameras and their recordings.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - Employs an encrypted secure gateway to record footage into the "cloud". Any CCTV system, IP or analogue, that has a web connection has the capability to store its video recordings to a cloud based server and storage facility. These systems are generally used along with monitoring companies who will charge a monthly or annual fee to keep a close eye on your property in Inverness.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most cameras on sale now come with some sort of infrared lighting built in to allow for video recording in even the darkest of locations. An infrared camera will record a black and white image but still deliver a similar resolution as that recorded in full daylight. If you find the resolution produced by infrared cameras isn't sufficiently good for your needs, it's possible to install external lighting sources that generate a more natural light. These offer the most effective chance of recording colours under artificial lighting, and can be configured to only switch on if the camera detects movement.
Be mindful if you're using traditional security lighting with cameras, so you don't annoy next door neighbours or shine light directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Systems that record or monitor your property aren't covered by the Data Protection Act unless they capture a neighbouring property or a public area; no matter how minimal the captured area may be. This does not mean you're not permitted to use your CCTV system or monitor activity on your property, but it does mean that any video footage must be secured in keeping with the legislation.
The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) can provide guidance on your legal obligations with regards to the monitoring and recording of public or neighbouring areas, which includes specific guidelines regarding signage to passers-by of your use of CCTV. A professional CCTV installation firm in Inverness will make certain that all legal obligations are satisfied in regards to positioning cameras and recording public areas, which a homeowner installation may not fully adhere to.
If your house is in a conservation area, is in an area of special scientific interest, is within a national park or is a listed building, you will have to double check with your local authority if planning permission is required. Planning permission can be avoided on most other dwellings in Inverness as long as the security cameras do not protrude from your outside walls by more than 1 metre and they're fitted at least two and a half metres from the ground.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
You should be able to find a good CCTV camera system that fits your security specifications and also suits your allotted budget. The most inexpensive CCTV camera system may still provide remote monitoring and recording from a single camera, whilst a multi camera, motion detection system connected to your security alarm and monitored remotely by a security company, will clearly be at the higher end of the budget range. A scrupulous and certified CCTV installer in Inverness will only put in equipment you need to fit your specific situation.

It has frequently been proven through police reports and insurance interviews with ex-burglars, that carefully-located, professionally installed, and visible CCTV security cameras are the best deterrent to opportunistic criminals.
