They're able to record continuous video or still images, save them to an on-site Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and the DVR can also be connected to the internet for monitoring remotely via smartphone or laptop. The DVR will have an option to copy stored data to an external device, such as a USB stick, or could have an inbuilt CD or DVD recorder to allow images and video to be handed to the police as criminal evidence.

Internet Protocol Systems - Using Internet Protocols (IP), these cameras hook up with a wireless intranet or internet connection to transfer their images and video. Each camera has its own independent IP address and connects to a gateway on a computer system or DVR. IP systems can additionally send video, pictures and alarm notifications direct to your smartphone, thus adding an extra security layer by stopping a burglar from destroying video evidence on an on-site DVR. Security has to be set-up carefully to avoid unwanted people from tapping into your images.

Cloud Based CCTV - Cameras employ an internet connection via an encrypted and secure server to save and store all images and video in what they call a "cloud". Providing that your CCTV apparatus is able to connect to the internet, either through a router as in IP cameras, or via the DVR in an analogue system, they will be capable of using cloud storage. Cloud recording typically has an annual or monthly fee which is determined by how much space is required on servers and whether or not you need remote monitoring by a security firm.

Contemporary CCTV cameras will often come complete with built in infrared lighting for operation in dark conditions. The images from an infrared camera may be of a slightly lower resolution than that of daylight and they'll also always be in black and white owing to the nature of low light recording devices. It's possible, if you discover the resolution at night doesn't meet your objectives, to set up special lamps that produce a more natural light source for your CCTV system. When combined with a CCTV security system this lighting delivers a natural looking light source and can also be programmed to light up only when your camera detects motion in its field of view.

If you're using motion sensor lights with a CCTV system, you must make certain that the light doesn't overly shine on neighbour's homes and gardens, or shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists.


Domestic CCTV systems which capture images across the boundary of your property, onto the highway or into a neighbour's garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act.
