CCTV Installation Southport Merseyside (PR8): With improvements in technology and ever falling costs, CCTV and security cameras have become commonplace in Southport on both commercial and residential buildings. But the security benefits can be diminished if cameras are installed inadequately or the CCTV system has been improperly designed. If you are looking for security improvements by fitting a CCTV system it's recommended you use an established CCTV installation firm in Southport.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - The conventional CCTV setup which can have a multi-camera installation fed into fixed recording equipment. They're able to record images and video to on-site Digital Video Recorders (DVR) and can provide an internet link for viewing remotely via your smartphone or laptop. The DVR should have the option to transfer the data stored to an external device, such as a USB flash drive, or might have a CD or DVD recorder inbuilt to permit video and images to be handed to the authorities as criminal evidence. The connection to the internet is optional, since these CCTV installations are designed to work as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol Systems - IP cameras connect to an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transfer their images and video. Each individual camera has its own IP address which is used to connect them to a DVR or computer system. IP systems can also send video footage, images and alarm notifications direct to your smart phone, thus adding a supplementary security layer by stopping a burglar or intruder from destroying evidence on an on-site DVR. But, the security features and encryption need to be set up properly to prevent any unwanted viewing of your camera footage.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - CCTV cameras employ an internet connection via a secure encrypted server to store and save all images and video in the "cloud". Any CCTV security system, IP or analogue, that has access to the internet has the capacity to store its video recordings to a cloud based server. The storing of data in the cloud usually involves a monthly or annual charge and is based upon the size of data you need to store, and whether or not you want your videos monitored by a professional CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Today's CCTV cameras often come complete with integrated infrared illumination for low light conditions. The images from an infrared may be of a fractionally diminished resolution when compared with those taken in full daylight and they will also always be in black and white owing to the peculiarities of low light recording equipment. It's quite possible, if you find the night vision resolution is not good enough for your needs, to put in specialist security lamps that generate a more natural light source for your CCTV system. When combined with a CCTV security system this lighting delivers a brighter light source and can also be adjusted to light only when your camera discerns movement in its field of view.
If you are using motion sensor lights with a CCTV camera system, you have to make certain the light does not overly shine on neighbour's property and gardens, or shine straight onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV cameras which capture images across the perimeter of your property, into a nearby garden or onto the street, are now covered by the Data Protection Act. This doesn't mean you're not allowed to use your CCTV system or monitor any activity, but it does mean that any video recordings have to be secured according to the legislation.
There are specific regulations on signs and notices for your CCTV security system if you're going to be recording a public place or an area belonging to some other person, and the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) should be contacted for advice. An experienced CCTV installation firm in Southport will make sure that all legal obligations are met with regards to recording public areas and siting cameras, which a do it yourself installation might not fully conform to.
If your house is a listed building, is in an area of scientific interest, is in a conservation area or is in a national park, you will need to check with your local authorities if planning permission is required. Planning permission for the majority of other houses in Southport won't be required if they are positioned at least 2.5 metres above the ground and they do not protrude more than 1 metre from your external walls.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget you should find a CCTV security system that fits your needs. The cheapest security system may still be able to provide remote recording and monitoring from only one camera, while a multi camera, motion detection system connected to your alarm and remotely monitored by a security company, will obviously be at the higher end of the budget range. An experienced CCTV company in Southport will evaluate your particular prerequisites and recommend a security system that meets your circumstances and needs.
They'll also make sure that your budget isn't overstretched or try and palm you off with equipment that's not required. You should be able to count on the highest possible levels of service for any Southport CCTV installation, irrespective of how much you spend. You should always get price quotes from at least 3 different security companies and make certain you fully understand the equipment and service that they are offering.
Certain locations may need hidden cameras, while others may call for a more noticeable presence to act as a deterrent to burglars. Be aware that interviews held with ex-burglars by police and insurance companies demonstrate that professionally installed CCTV is the top rated deterrent in encouraging a would be thief to move on to a less well protected property.
If you've bought a CCTV camera system from an online store or electronics shop, you are still able to get skilled assistance in its siting and installation. Any local Southport alarm and security installation specialist will still install your CCTV equipment, even if you did not buy it directly from them. They will be familiar and trained with all models of CCTV equipment and will offer you a specialist service to install and setup your brand new system.
STANDARDS, TRAINING, ACCREDITATION AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
Security camera equipment that is installed in your Southport property should comply with British Standards for CCTV systems, BS EN 62676. These standards give installation teams guidance on the recommendations for CCTV security systems and how well they should perform. It isn't legally required to install a BS EN 62676 compliant system, but non-British Standard devices mightn't have been tested thoroughly and if the system does not meet your expectations, you may find that you have little or no recourse.
The security sector is well regulated and any professional CCTV installation company should have membership of a trade body, or be affiliated with one or more accepted security associations. The following are the primary UK security trade associations:
The Security Institute - The largest of all the trade organisations for security technicians, the SI is respected and recognised within the security industry. With more than 3,000 signed up members, the SI guarantees that its certified members will deliver the highest security standards by using best practices and following Codes of Conduct at all stages of planning, installation and maintenance.
Secure By Design - This government initiative is driven by police forces across the United Kingdom to reduce crime. They work alongside installers, builders and designers to strengthen the physical security of industrial and domestic properties all across the country.
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - This is one of the largest organisations within Great Britain's security industry. All its members must follow the security industry's Codes of Practice, British Standards for CCTV and security installations and adopt ISO 9000 regulations.
The National Security Inspectorate - This independent trade association only acknowledges the best companies in the security and fire safety sector. The National Security Inspectorate membership application is a stringent procedure and includes demonstrations of a company's ability to maintain, design and install a range of CCTV and other security systems. A security must also prove they have trained and vetted employees correctly, own suitable vehicles and equipment for their area of expertise, and that their business premises are appropriate for promoting the security industry in a good light. Membership is acknowledged as the highest standard by fire services, police forces and insurance companies in the United Kingdom and the European Union.
