CCTV Installation Sandhurst Berkshire (GU47): CCTV systems and security cameras have become common in Sandhurst over the last decade, owing to improvements in technology and falling costs. But the security benefits can be diminished if cameras are positioned inadequately or the CCTV system's plan has been poorly designed. To avoid any design or installment issues and get the best performance from your security camera system it is best to use a professional Sandhurst installation contractor with lots of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - The conventional CCTV system which can have a multi-camera installation fed into fixed recording equipment. Analogue style systems can be installed to take still frames or provide constant video recording and transfer them to a local DVR (digital video recorder) for storage. Video footage can be transferred to a USB or CD/DVD for police inspection if neccessary. The web connection is optional, given that these CCTV setups are intended to work as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol Systems - Cameras can be connected to a wide area network, a local intranet or via the internet for providing recording and monitoring. Each camera has got its own unique IP address and links to a specific gateway on a DVR or computer system. One of the advantages with IP cameras is the ability to record video and images to a remote location, such as your mobile, so that any identifying data cannot be deleted on-site by an intruder. It has to be emphasised that passwords and other security features have to be strong enough on IP equipment and cameras to stop any unwarranted viewing of your CCTV system.
Cloud Systems - Employ an encrypted secure gateway to record footage into "cloud" storage. Any CCTV camera system, IP or analogue, which has got internet access has the ability to store their recordings to a cloud based storage facility. Such CCTV systems are typically used in combination with monitoring companies who charge a monthly or annual fee to keep a close eye on your property in Sandhurst.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most CCTV cameras on the market these days come with some type of in-built infrared lighting to facilitate recording for even the gloomiest of locations. An infrared camera will capture a black and white image but will still provide a similar resolution as that recorded in daylight. If there is a large difference in resolution, it might also be possible to fit security lighting with specialist lamps that will generate something close to natural light. When combined with a CCTV security system this lighting generates a natural looking light source and can be programmed to light only when your camera perceives motion in its field of view.
Be mindful if you are using security lighting with cameras, so as not to irritate neighbours or shine directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Systems which monitor or record your property and outside areas aren't covered by the Data Protection Act unless they record footage from any public areas, or neighbouring property; irrespective of how modest the captured area may be. This does not mean that they're illegal to use, it just means that all captured footage is regulated.
The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) can provide guidance on the legislation with regards to the monitoring of public areas, which includes targeted information regarding signage to passers-by of your use of a CCTV system. To sidestep any problems from the legal requirements it is best to bring in a dependable and certified CCTV installation company in Sandhurst to install your CCTV cameras and any associated products.
You shouldn't need planning permission for your external CCTV security cameras unless you're positioning them on a listed building, you live in a national park, you are in a place of special scientific interest or you live in a conservation area. In all other houses in Sandhurst you can avoid planning permission by making certain that your cameras are fixed at least 2.5m above ground level and that they do not project out a distance of greater than a metre.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget is you should find a CCTV camera system that matches your requirements. The most economical system may still be able to offer remote recording and monitoring from only one camera, whilst a multi camera, motion detection system linked to your burglar alarm and monitored remotely by a specialist company, will naturally be at the higher end of the budget scale. A trustworthy security camera installer in Sandhurst will consider all your requirements and constraints to offer you the most effective CCTV apparatus at the right price.
They will also make certain your stated budget isn't overstepped or try and sell you equipment that's not necessary. You should be able to count on the highest possible levels of service for any CCTV installation, no matter how much you spend. Don't meekly accept the first estimate you are offered since it is always sound practice to get a minimum of three quotations from different local security companies.
You may wish to keep your surveillance cameras hidden from onlookers, or alternatively you might need them to act as an obvious deterrent by being visible. A perfectly located CCTV security system has been proven by interviews with ex-burglars to provide the most effective deterrent to would be burglars.
Maybe you have bought a CCTV system from an online retailer or an electronics store, and need professional assistance with its fitting and setup. A local Sandhurst alarm and security service will still fit your CCTV system, even if you didn't purchase it from them. With their experience of the various different CCTV systems on the market, they are likely to be familiar with any brand you've purchased, and will swiftly and efficiently set up and fit your equipment.
STANDARDS, ACCREDITATION, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When choosing a CCTV security system for your Sandhurst property you should only consider one that carries the British Standard BS EN 62676 kitemark. The standards highlighted in BS EN 62676 stipulates the performance criteria for the apparatus, and recommendations on how best to install and site the CCTV cameras for best effect. If you've got non-British Standard CCTV equipment fitted and it doesn't live up to the quality levels usually provided by the company, or even your own requirements, you may find it difficult to rectify the situation.
