CCTV Installation Penrith Cumbria (CA11): The technology improvements in security and CCTV cameras, and their reduced prices, means that they are a common sight on commercial and residential properties in Penrith. However a poorly installed CCTV system might not supply the security benefits that you're interested in. To avoid any design or installment issues and get the best performance from any security camera system it is advisable to use a professional installation company in Penrith with lots of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - Can have a multi-camera installation to monitor and record all areas of your property, both inside and outside. They basically record images and video to locally sited DVRs (digital video recorders) and can supply an internet link for viewing remotely via your computer or smartphone. The DVR should have the facility to copy the data stored across to an external storage device, like a USB drive, or might have a CD or DVD recorder inbuilt to allow images and video to be handed to the relevant authorities for evidence purposes. The web connection is optional, as these CCTV installations are intended to work as a standalone system where necessary.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Cameras can be linked to a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet to provide recording and monitoring. Each individual camera has got its own IP address which is used to connect them to a DVR or computer system. IP systems also send pictures, video footage and notifications straight to your smart phone, subsequently adding an extra measure of security by stopping a burglar from destroying evidence on a local DVR. But, the security features and encryption need to be configured correctly to stop any unauthorised viewing of your recorded material.
Cloud Based CCTV - These CCTV cameras record to a remote storage location based in the internet "cloud". Both analogue and IP systems can use cloud technology along with their basic recording features. Such CCTV systems are typically used with monitoring companies who will charge an annual or monthly fee to keep a close eye on your property in Penrith.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern CCTV cameras will often come with built in infrared lights to enable use in low light conditions. Infrared cameras record black and white images but will still provide a similar resolution as that recorded in normal daylight. It's quite possible, if you discover the resolution at night does not meet your objectives, to fit special lamps that create a natural light source for your CCTV system. When linked with a CCTV camera system this lighting provides a natural looking light source and can also be configured to light up only when the camera perceives motion in its vicinity.
If you're using motion sensor lights with a CCTV system, you must make sure that the light doesn't shine brightly on neighbour's homes and gardens, or shine straight onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV cameras that capture images over the edges of the perimeter of your property, onto the road or into a nearby garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. The Data Protection Act doesn't mean that the use of CCTV cameras are illegal, however any recordings stored must be safeguarded from potential misuse for anyone who's captured in the video footage.
There are specific guidelines on signs and notices for your CCTV system if you are monitoring and recording a public area or property belonging to somebody else, and the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) should be contacted for advice. To prevent any issues from the legal requirements it's best to employ a dependable and experienced CCTV specialist in Penrith to install your CCTV cameras and any associated devices.
You should not require planning permission for your external CCTV security cameras unless you're mounting them on a listed building, you are in a place of special scientific interest, you live in a national park or you live in a conservation area. Planning permission for the majority of other buildings in Penrith won't be required if they are sited more than 2.5 metres above ground level and they do not stick out more than one metre from your external walls.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget you should find a CCTV security system that fits your needs. From a straightforward inside camera to record entry and exit, to a multiple IP camera system, with high definition recording and motion detecting alarm linked devices. A genuine and professional CCTV installer in Penrith will only install equipment you need to fit your situation.
A good Penrith company will also do all that they can to ensure that costs don't overshoot your budget constraints, without needing to make any shortcuts. You should expect the highest levels of service for any installation from an experienced CCTV company, regardless of how much you are prepared to spend. Always get itemised price quotes from at least 3 different installation companies and make certain you understand precisely the service and equipment that they are providing.
Certain locations might need discrete cameras, while others may need a more visible presence to act as a deterrent to intruders. Remember that interviews conducted with ex-burglars by insurance companies and police reveal that skillfully installed CCTV equipment is the number one deterrent in encouraging a would be intruder to move on to a less protected house.
It may be the case that you have acquired an off the shelf CCTV system and need expert help with the installation. Any local Penrith professional alarm and security installation company will still fit your CCTV equipment, even if you have not purchased it through them. They'll be familiar and trained with all brands of CCTV systems and will offer a professional service to install and configure your system.
ACCREDITATION, STANDARDS, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When picking a CCTV system for your Penrith property you should only consider one that displays the BS EN 62676 (British Standard) kitemark. Such standards give installation teams guidance on the requirements of CCTV systems and how effectively they should perform. If you've got non standard CCTV equipment installed and it doesn't meet the level of quality usually provided by the installation company, or even your own expectations, you may find it difficult to rectify the situation.
The security industry is well regulated and any reliable CCTV installer should have membership to a trade body, or have an affiliation with at least one accepted security association. The following are the major UK security trade organisations:
Secure By Design - SBD is an official police security initiative set up with the aim or reducing crime. The SBD liaises closely with building firms, architects and security companies to improve the security of industrial and residential premises all over the United Kingdom.
The Security Institute (SI) - The biggest of all the trade organisations for security specialists, the SI is respected and recognised within the security industry. It sets very high standards for all of its 3,000 plus membership in all areas of the security sector by the promotion of best working practices, and it guarantees the professional competency of its members.
The National Security Inspectorate - As an independent trade organisation, the NSI promotes the security and fire safety industry by endorsing the most reputable CCTV and security firms throughout the country. The vetting process is exacting and involves a company demonstrating their proficiency in the maintenance, installation and planning of a wide array of security equipment. A business must also prove they have vetted and trained staff properly, own suitable vehicles and equipment in their field of expertise, and that their business premises are appropriate for promoting the security industry in a good light. Police forces, the fire and rescue services, and the major insurance providers in the UK all recognise NSI members as having the highest possible working standards within the security industry.
