CCTV Installation Southend-on-Sea Essex (SS0): With technology improvements and falling costs, CCTV cameras have become a common occurrence in Southend-on-Sea on both commercial and residential buildings. Nevertheless an improperly installed and designed CCTV system may not provide the security benefits that you're in need of. It is strongly suggested that if you are thinking of installing security cameras on your propertyin Southend-on-Sea, you use the knowledge and experience of an experienced CCTV installation contractor.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - These are the traditional systems that can record and monitor using a multi-camera installation. They are able to record still images or continuous video footage, save them to a local DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring via PC or smartphone. The stored videos and images can be copied to a USB stick or DVD/CD for inspection and identification of suspects by the police in any criminal investigation. Whilst a lot of DVR's do have an internet connection as standard, they are designed to operate as standalone systems.
Internet Protocol Systems - Wireless cameras connect with local equipment via their own network (intranet), or can connect to a router for the transmission of their video signals. Each camera has got its own independent IP address and connects to a gateway on a DVR or computer system. One of the benefits of IP systems is the ability to record images and video to a remote location, including your smartphone, so any relevant footage can't be deleted by the intruder on site. It should be emphasised that security features such as passwords must be sufficiently strong on IP cameras and equipment to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your CCTV recordings.
Cloud Systems - Use a secure encrypted gateway to record into the "cloud". Any CCTV camera system, analogue or IP, that has access to the internet is able to store its recordings to cloud based storage. Such CCTV systems are normally used along with monitoring companies who'll charge an annual or monthly fee to keep a close eye on your property in Southend-on-Sea.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern day CCTV cameras will often come equipped with in-built infrared lights for operating in low light conditions. Any infrared CCTV camera will record video in black and white during the hours of darkness and at a marginally lower resolution when compared to the camera's daylight footage. It's quite possible, if you think your resolution at night doesn't meet your objectives, to install special lamps that create a better light source for your CCTV system. These lamps can produce "daylight" conditions for your cameras, as well as delivering bright lighting when any movement is identified by a camera.
If you're using motion sensor security lights with a CCTV camera, you have to make sure the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's gardens and property, or shine directly into any oncoming traffic areas.
CCTV AND THE LAW
If your CCTV system records any public areas or a neighbour's garden or property you're governed by Data Protection Act legislation. This Act does not mean its illegal to use these CCTV cameras, however any recordings stored on the system must be safeguarded from potential misuse for anyone showing up in the recordings.
There are distinct regulations on informational signage for your CCTV system if you happen to be monitoring and recording a public place or an area belonging to another person, and you should contact the Information Commissioner's Office for advice. To avoid any issues with your legal obligations it is wise to use a reputable and certified CCTV installation firm in Southend-on-Sea to install your CCTV cameras and any related devices.
If your property is in an area of scientific interest, is listed, is within a national park or is in a conservation area, you will have to double check with the local council whether planning permission is needed. You should also be able to avoid planning permission if any lighting and camera system is installed at least 2.5 mtrs above the ground and doesn't project more than a metre from your walls.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Spending budgets shouldn't have to be a decisive factor when it comes to picking the ideal CCTV system for your property in Southend-on-Sea and there are packages out there to suit all tastes. The most affordable system may still provide remote recording and monitoring from a single camera, while a multi camera, motion detecting system connected to your intruder alarm and monitored remotely by a specialist company, will clearly be at the top end of the budget level. An experienced CCTV company in Southend-on-Sea will consider your particular requirements and fit a security system that meets your circumstances and needs.
They'll also make sure your spending budget isn't overstretched or try to palm you off with equipment that isn't required. Irrespective of how much you decide to shell out on a CCTV system, a good installation company will give you the best service, from sales through to installation and maintenance. Don't accept the first quote you get as it is always sound practice to obtain a minimum of 3 itemised estimates from different installation companies.
Certain locations may need hidden cameras, whilst others may need a more noticeable presence as a deterrent to burglars. An expertly fitted CCTV security system has been shown through interviews with ex-burglars to deliver the most effective deterrent to potential burglars.
It may be the case that you have purchased an out of the box CCTV security system and need expert assistance with the installation process. Your local Southend-on-Sea alarm and security specialist will still install your CCTV system, even if you have not bought it through them. They'll be familiar and trained with all brands of CCTV equipment and will offer you a specialist service to install and setup your new system.
STANDARDS, ACCREDITATION, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
You should look out for CCTV cameras that carry the British Standard BS EN 62676 for the protection of your Southend-on-Sea home or business premises. This British Standard mark specifies how effectively a CCTV system is supposed to function and offers instructions on its installation to security companies. It's not legally necessary to install a BS EN 62676 compliant system, but non-British Standard equipment might not have been tested thoroughly and if the system doesn't meet your expectations, you might discover you have little if any available recourse.
To guarantee you are using a certified CCTV specialist you should look for affiliation or membership of an established trade organisation within the industry. The following are the principal United Kingdom security trade organisations:
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - Within the CCTV and security industry, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is one of the highest respected trade associations. All members of the BSIA are appraised and conform to British Standards, ISO 9000 regulations for security installations, and abide by all Codes of Practice for the industry.
Secure By Design - Founded with the aim of reducing crime across the United Kingdom, the SBD is a government initiative led by the police. Secure by Design works closely with security installers, construction firms and architects to improve the physical security of industrial and residential properties all over the UK.
The Security Institute (SI) - The SI is the biggest of all the trade associations for security professionals. The SI has over three thousand affiliates from all aspects of the security industry and promotes best working practices, professional competence and setting the highest standards in security for all its membership.
The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) - As an independent UK trade organisation, the National Security Inspectorate promotes the security and fire safety industry by highlighting high quality CCTV and security firms in Great Britain. The National Security Inspectorate membership application is a strict process and involves a demonstration of a company's capability to install, maintain and plan a range of CCTV and other security systems. A security company also has to supply records that relate to; personal and company insurances, staff training and vetting, equipment calibration and maintenance, and must also show that the company premises are suitable for the NSI's rigorous requirements. Members of the NSI are recognised across the UK and the European Union by the 3 main emergency services, and by insurance providers, as upholding the highest standards within the CCTV and security industry.
