Analogue CCTV - Can have a multi-camera installation to record activity over all aspects of your home, both inside and out. They basically record images and video to on-site DVRs (digital video recorders) and are able to provide a link to the internet for remote viewing via your smartphone or laptop. The DVR will have the facility to transfer the data stored to an external storage device, like a USB drive, or may have a DVD or CD recorder inbuilt to enable images and video to be handed to the police for evidence purposes. These are designed to work as an independent CCTV system without the need for a connection to the internet.

IP Cameras - Internet Protocol cameras hook up to a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their recorded images. The DVR part of an IP system has got a secure gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, whilst at the same time having the capacity to connect through a router for viewing and monitoring purposes. The main advantage with IP systems is the capacity to record images and video to a remote location, such as your smartphone, so any relevant video data can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the encryption and security features need to be set up correctly to stop any unwelcome viewing of your recordings.

Cloud Systems - Employ an encrypted secure gateway to record footage into "cloud" storage. Both analogue and IP systems can use cloud based technology together with their primary recording capabilities. These CCTV systems are normally used in combination with monitoring companies who charge a monthly or annual fee to keep an eye on your property in Manchester.

Modern day CCTV cameras will often come with built in infrared lights to allow for low light conditions. An infrared camera will capture a black and white image but will still deliver a comparable resolution to that recorded in normal daytime light. If you discover that the resolution using infrared is not sufficiently good for your requirements, you might be able to install external security lighting to create a natural light. These provide the best options for recording colours under artificial light conditions, and can also be configured to only light up if movement is detected by the camera.

Be careful if using security lighting with CCTV cameras, so you don't affect next door neighbours or shine light directly onto roads.


Residential CCTV cameras that capture images over the boundary of your property, onto the main street or into a neighbour's garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This doesn't make them illegal to use, it simply means that all recordings are subject to the legislation.

There are distinct guidelines on informational signage for your CCTV security system if you happen to be monitoring and recording a public area or property belonging to another person, and you should contact the Information Commissioner's Office for advice. A competent CCTV installation service in Manchester will ensure that all legal requirements are satisfied with regard to recording public areas and the positioning of cameras, which a DIY installation might not fully comply with.

Planning permission for CCTV cameras placed externally to your property will need to be checked if you're positioning them onto a listed building, you live in a national park, you're in a place of scientific interest or you live in a conservation area. Planning permission can be sidestepped on most other properties in Manchester providing that the cameras do not stick out from your outside walls by more than one metre and they're mounted at least 2.5m from the ground.
