CCTV Installation Sedgley West Midlands (DY3): CCTV systems and security cameras have become a common sight in Sedgley over the last ten years, owing to ever falling costs and technology improvements. But all CCTV systems don't deliver the same level of security, especially if the equipment has been poorly positioned. To eliminate any design problems and get the best performance from your security system it's always best to use a professional installation contractor in Sedgley with CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - Can have multiple cameras to monitor and record all areas of your home, both outside and in. Analogue systems can be installed to take still frames or provide constant recording or video and transfer them to an on-site Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for storage and viewing. The DVR will have an option to copy stored data across to an external device, like a USB stick, or could have an inbuilt CD or DVD recorder to enable video and images to be given to the relevant authorities as criminal evidence. They are intended to work as a standalone CCTV system with an entirely optional internet connection.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - IP cameras hook up with an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transmit their images and video. Each camera has got a unique IP address which is used to link them to a DVR or computer system. One of the advantages with IP cameras is the opportunity to record images and video to a remote location, including your smartphone, so that any identifying data can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. It has to be emphasised that security features such as passwords need to be strong enough on IP cameras and equipment to prevent any unsanctioned viewing of your CCTV system.
Cloud Systems - Use a secure encrypted gateway to record camera footage into the "cloud". Any CCTV security system, analogue or IP, which has got an internet connection has the ability to store its video footage to a cloud. These CCTV systems are generally used in combination with monitoring companies who charge an annual or monthly fee to keep an eye on your property in Sedgley.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern CCTV cameras often come complete with integrated infrared lighting to allow for dark conditions. The images recorded by an infrared camera may be of a slightly diminished resolution in comparison with those taken in normal daytime light and they will always be in black and white because of the characteristics of low light recording. If you consider the resolution using infrared cameras isn't good enough for your needs, you might be able to install external security lighting to create a natural light. Such lighting can produce "daylight" conditions for your system, as well as triggering brighter lights when any movement is detected by the system.
Be thoughtful if you are using security lighting with cameras, so as not to disturb next door neighbours or shine directly onto roads.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV cameras which capture images across the perimeter of your property, onto the highway or into a neighbouring garden, now come under the Data Protection Act. This Act does not mean that the use of CCTV system are illegal, but any footage stored on the system must be given protection from possible misuse for any person showing up in the footage.
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) can provide guidance on the regulations regarding the monitoring and recording of public or neighbouring areas, which includes specific instructions regarding signs to the public of your use of CCTV cameras. You can make certain that all legal obligations are met by employing a reliable CCTV service in Sedgley for the installing of your CCTV security system.
You probably won't need planning permission for your CCTV security cameras unless you live in a conservation area, you live in a national park, you are in a place of scientific interest or you are positioning them onto a listed building. In other houses in Sedgley you can avoid planning permission by ensuring your cameras and lights are mounted at least 2.5 metres above ground level and that they don't project out a distance of greater than one metre.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget is you should find a CCTV system that satisfies your needs. Your situation might mean that all you require is a solitary CCTV camera to cover your front door, whilst a larger property may need a selection of cameras with motion detecting technology that is connected to a security company's monitoring service. A scrupulous and certified CCTV installation service in Sedgley will only put in equipment you need to fit your specific situation.
A good Sedgley company will also do everything feasible to ensure costs don't exceed your stated budget, without making any shortcuts. No matter how much money you shell out on a CCTV system, a decent Sedgley company will give you the very best service, from sales through to installation and aftercare. You should not accept the first estimate you're offered because it is always good practice to obtain a minimum of 3 estimates from different security companies.
Cameras that are visible provide a deterrent to burglars, yet hidden cameras with the correct signs can be just as effectual in some situations. It has frequently been shown through insurance interviews with ex-burglars and police reports, that well-positioned, skillfully installed, and highly visible CCTV cameras are the most effective deterrent to opportunistic intruders.
It may be the case that you have purchased an out of the box CCTV security system and need help with the installation. A local Sedgley CCTV company will be willing to help even if you have not purchased the equipment from them.
