Analogue Systems - These are the conventional camera setups which can monitor and record over a multi-camera installation. They are able to record images and video to on-site DVRs (digital video recorders) and can provide a link to the internet for remote viewing via your PC or smartphone. The DVR should have the option to transfer the data stored to an external device, like a USB drive, or may have an inbuilt CD or DVD recorder to enable video and images to be given to the police for evidence purposes. The internet connection is optional, given that these CCTV setups are designed to perform as a standalone system.

IP Cameras - These cameras can be linked to a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet for providing monitoring and recording. Each camera has got its own IP address and links to a gateway on a computer system or DVR. The advantage with IP systems is the capacity to record video and images to a remote location, such as your smartphone, so any identifying data cannot be deleted by the intruder on site. It should be stressed that security features such as passwords should be strong enough on IP cameras and equipment to stop any unauthorised access to your CCTV recordings.

Cloud Based CCTV Systems - Cameras make use of an internet connection via an encrypted and secure server to save and store all images and video footage in what they call a "cloud".

Night time vision using infrared LED lighting comes as standard on the majority of CCTV cameras. The images captured by an infrared might be of a marginally diminished resolution when compared with those captured in normal daytime light and they'll also always be in black and white because of the characteristics of low light recording devices. It's possible, if you discover the night vision resolution is too low for your requirements, to set up specialist security lamps that yield a natural light source for your CCTV cameras. When attached into a CCTV system these lamps generate a natural looking source of light and can also be adjusted to light up only when your camera perceives a certain amount of movement in its field of view.

Sensor lighting can be employed with cameras however, as is the case with any such lighting they should not shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists or into neighbour's gardens and properties.


Cameras which record or monitor your property and outside areas are exempt from the Data Protection Act except if they capture a neighbour's property or a public area; irrespective of how modest the area covered might be. This does not make them illegal, it simply means that any recordings that you make are subject to the regulations.
