CCTV Installation Marlborough Wiltshire (SN8): Security cameras and CCTV systems in Marlborough have become commonplace over the last 10 years due to falling costs and improvements in technology. But an improperly designed and installed CCTV system may well not provide the security benefits that you are in need of. If you are looking for security improvements by the installation of a CCTV system it is highly recommended you use an established CCTV installation company in Marlborough.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - The traditional CCTV setup which can have a multi-camera installation fed into a stationary recording device. They will record video and images to local DVRs (digital video recorders) and are able to supply an internet link for viewing remotely via your tablet, smartphone or laptop. Video footage can be transferred to a USB or CD/DVD for police inspection if need be. The connection to the internet is optional, because these CCTV installations are designed to perform as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Cameras can be linked to a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet to provide monitoring and recording. The DVR in an IP system has got a secure gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, while also having the capability to connect through a router for monitoring purposes. Having the ability to send a live stream to your mobile is a major advantage of IP cameras, and the images and video can also be saved on your device for extra security. However, the encryption and security features have to be set up correctly to prevent any unwelcome viewing of your camera footage.
Cloud Systems - CCTV cameras use an internet connection via an encrypted server to store and save all images and video in the "cloud". Both IP and analogue systems are able to use cloud technology along with their standard recording activities. The storing of data in the cloud usually involves a monthly or annual charge and will be based on the quantity of data you need to store, and whether or not you want your videos monitored by a professional CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most CCTV cameras on offer today come equipped with some type of infrared lighting built in to support video recording in even the darkest settings. Any infrared camera will record black and white pictures at night and at a slightly lower resolution than the camera's daylight recordings. If you consider that the resolution produced by infrared cameras isn't adequate for your requirements, it is possible to install extra lighting to generate a natural light. These lights can generate a daylight effect for your CCTV cameras, as well as providing a bright light when any movement is picked up by your camera.
Take care if using traditional security lighting with cameras, so as not to bother nearby neighbours or shine light directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Systems that record or monitor your property and outside areas are exempt from the Data Protection Act unless they capture footage from any public areas, or neighbour's property; irrespective of how small the captured area may be. This does not mean that you are not permitted to use your cameras or record activity on your property, but it does mean that any video footage must be secured according to the legislation.
If your CCTV system is able to record even a small public area, the Information Commissioner's Office has particular guidance on data protection and signage. A reliable CCTV installation contractor in Marlborough will make certain that all legal obligations are satisfied in regards to recording public areas and positioning cameras, which a DIY installation may not completely follow.
You should not need planning permission for your external CCTV security cameras unless you live in a national park, you live in a conservation area, you are in a place of special scientific interest or you are placing them on a listed building. Planning permission for most other buildings in Marlborough won't be required if they're positioned more than 2.5 mtrs above ground level and they don't stick out more than 1 metre from your exterior wall.
PICKING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
You should be able to obtain a CCTV camera system that matches your security specifications and also matches your budget. The most affordable CCTV security system may still offer you remote recording and monitoring from a single camera, while a multi camera, motion detection system connected to your security alarm and monitored remotely by a specialist company, will obviously be at the high end of the budget scale. An honest and experienced CCTV installer in Marlborough will only put in a security system that fits your particular situation.
A genuine Marlborough CCTV installation company will also conform to your spending budget and make certain that you end up with the best possible CCTV system for your price range. Irrespective of how much cash you commit to your CCTV equipment, a genuine installation company will give you the best possible service, from purchase to installation and aftercare. It's always a wise idea to get at least three different estimates for the security system you wish to install.
Certain zones may require discrete cameras, whilst others might call for a more visible presence in order to act as a deterrent to potential burglars. Be aware that interviews conducted with ex-burglars by insurance companies and police demonstrate that professionally installed CCTV equipment is the number one deterrent in encouraging a would be intruder to consider a less protected house.
If you have bought a CCTV security system from an online store or electronics shop, you are still able to get specialist assistance in its installation and configuration. A local Marlborough CCTV company will be able to help you out even if you have not purchased the equipment through them. Whatever size and model of CCTV system you might have obtained, they will have the expertise and knowledge to effectively and quickly get it installed.
TRAINING, ACCREDITATION, STANDARDS AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
Security camera equipment that's installed on your Marlborough home needs to comply with British Standards for CCTV systems, BS EN 62676. The standards highlighted in BS EN 62676 stipulates the operational parameters for the apparatus, and suggestions on how best to install and site the CCTV camera system for best effect. It isn't a legal requirement to have a BS EN 62676 certified system installed, but non-British Standard equipment mightn't have been tested thoroughly and if the system doesn't meet your high expectations, you might discover you have little or no recourse.
CCTV companies, contractors and trades-people should really be affiliated with at least one acknowledged trade association within the camera and security field. The major trade organisations to look for are:

Members of the NSI are acknowledged across the United Kingdom and the European Union by the 3 main emergency services, and by insurance providers, as upholding the highest standards in the security and fire industry.
The Security Institute - The Security Institute has the largest membership of professional security companies and contractors in the United Kingdom.
