CCTV Installation Irvine Scotland (KA11): Security cameras and CCTV systems in Irvine have become a common sight over the last few years mainly due to falling costs and technology improvements. Nevertheless the security benefits can be diminished if equipment is sited incorrectly or the CCTV system has been poorly designed. If you are looking at improvements in security by the installation of a CCTV system it's recommended you use a reputable and professional CCTV installation firm in Irvine.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - These are the standard setups that can record and monitor using a multi-camera installation. They're capable of recording continuous video or still images, save them to an on-site Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring using a smartphone or laptop. Video clips can be transferred to a USB drive or CD/DVD for inspection by the police when necessary. They are designed to work as an independent CCTV system with an entirely optional web connection.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - These cameras can be connected with a local intranet, a wide area network or through the internet to provide recording and monitoring. The DVR part of an IP CCTV system has a secured gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, whilst at the same time having the capacity to connect through a router for monitoring and viewing purposes. The main advantage with IP systems is the capability to record video and images to another location, including your smartphone, so any relevant video data cannot be deleted by the intruder on site. But, the encryption and security features have to be configured correctly to prevent any unwelcome viewing of your camera footage.
Cloud Based CCTV - These systems record to a remote location based in the internet "cloud". If your CCTV equipment can connect to the web, either by means of a router as in IP cameras, or via an analogue DVR system, it will have the ability to use cloud based storage. Cloud recording typically carries a yearly or monthly fee which is determined by the amount of space required on servers and whether or not you require remote monitoring.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most CCTV cameras on the market these days come equipped with some sort of infrared lighting built in to enable video recording for even the darkest situations. The images recorded by an infrared camera could be of a marginally lower resolution than those captured in daylight and they will always be in black and white thanks to the dynamics of low light recording. It's possible, if you think the resolution at night is not good enough for your needs, to put in special lamps that create a more natural light source for your CCTV cameras. When linked with a CCTV security system this lighting generates a natural looking light source and can be programmed to light up only when your camera perceives movement in its vicinity.
If you are using motion sensor lights with a CCTV camera system, you have to make certain the light does not overly shine on neighbour's property and gardens, or shine straight into the eyes of passing motorists.
CCTV AND THE LAW
If your CCTV cameras capture footage from any part of public areas or a neighbour's garden or property you are subject to the legislation within the Data Protection Act. This Act doesn't mean that the use of CCTV system are illegal, but any data stored on the system must be safeguarded from potential misuse for anybody showing up in the video footage.
There are specific guidelines on notices and signs for your CCTV camera system if you're going to be recording a public place or an area belonging to another person, and you should contact the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) for advice. To prevent any issues from the legal guidelines you'll want to bring in a reputable and certified CCTV firm in Irvine to install your CCTV system and any related devices.
If your house is within a national park, is in a conservation area, is listed or is in an area of special scientific interest, you will need to check with your local authorities if planning permission is required. You should also be able to avoid the need for planning permission if any camera and lighting system is installed at least 2.5 metres above the ground and doesn't project more than a metre from your wall.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Spending budgets shouldn't have to be a decisive factor when it comes to picking a suitable CCTV camera system for your home or business premises in Irvine and there are packages available to suit everyone's price range. Your situation may mean that all you require is a single CCTV camera to cover your main entrance, whilst a larger home may need a selection of cameras with motion detector technology that is connected to a security company's monitored alarm system. A scrupulous and certified CCTV installer in Irvine will only put in a system that matches your particular circumstances.
A trustworthy Irvine installation company should also do all that they can to ensure that costs are kept within your budget constraints, without making any shortcuts. You should expect the highest levels of service for any installation from an experienced CCTV installer, regardless of your budget. You should always get itemised quotes from at least 3 different installation companies and make sure that you understand fully the service and equipment they are providing.
You may wish to keep your security cameras hidden from onlookers, or then again you might require them to act as a physical deterrent by being noticeable. A skillfully fitted CCTV security system has been proven through police interviews with ex-burglars to offer the biggest deterrent to would be burglars.
Maybe you have bought a CCTV system from an electronics store or online retailer, and need professional assistance with its fitting. Any local Irvine CCTV company will be happy to help even if you've not purchased the equipment from them. Whichever size and model of CCTV system you may have obtained, they'll have the expertise and knowledge to quickly and effectively get it installed and connected.
ACCREDITATION, TRAINING, STANDARDS AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
You should always watch out for CCTV equipment that carries the British Standard BS EN 62676 for installation on your Irvine home. Such specifications give guidance to installation teams on the recommendations for CCTV security systems and how well they should operate. If you have non standard equipment fitted and it doesn't live up to the level of quality usually provided by the installation company, or your own requirements, you might find it difficult to rectify the situation.
To make sure you're using the services of a respectable CCTV company you should always look for affiliation or membership of an accredited trade organisation within the industry. The primary trade organisations to watch out for are:
