CCTV Installation Southwater West Sussex (RH13): The improvements in technology of security and CCTV cameras, and their falling prices, means that they're widespread on commercial and domestic premises in Southwater. Yet the security benefits may be lost if equipment is installed incorrectly or the CCTV system has been poorly designed. If you're looking at improvements in security by installing a CCTV system it's recommended you use an experienced and professional CCTV installation firm in Southwater.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - The standard CCTV setup which can have a multi-camera installation fed into a stationary recording device. Analogue style systems can be installed to take still frames or provide constant video recording and transfer them to a locally sited DVR (digital video recorder) for viewing and storage. The DVR should have the option to copy the data stored to an external device, such as a USB drive, or might have a DVD or CD recorder inbuilt to permit images and video to be given to the authorities for evidence purposes. The connection to the internet is optional, because these CCTV setups are intended to operate as a standalone system when necessary.
IP Cameras - Cameras can be linked to a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet for providing monitoring and recording. Each camera has its own independent IP address and connects to a specific gateway on a computer system or DVR. Having the ability to send notifications to your smartphone is a huge advantage of IP systems, and the video and images can be saved onto your device for increased security. But, the encryption and security features have to be configured correctly to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your camera footage.
Cloud Based CCTV Systems - These systems record to remote storage based in the internet "cloud". As long as your CCTV system 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 accessing cloud storage. To store data in the cloud generally requires an annual or monthly payment and is based upon the quantity of data you wish to store, and whether or not you want your Southwater property by a professional CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most cameras on offer today come with some type of in-built infrared lighting to enable recording for even the gloomiest settings. Any infrared camera will record video in black and white at night and at a somewhat lower resolution when compared to the camera's daylight recordings. It is possible, if you discover your night vision resolution doesn't meet your expectations, to install special security lamps that yield a natural light source for your cameras. These lighting equipment can provide "daylight" conditions for your CCTV cameras, as well as providing a bright light when any movement is picked up by your equipment.
If you're using motion sensor security lights with a CCTV camera, you have to ensure the light doesn't overly shine on neighbour's gardens and homes, or shine straight onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Systems that monitor or record your property and outside areas aren't covered by the Data Protection Act except when they capture a neighbour's property or a public area; regardless of how modest the captured area might be. This Act does not mean that the use of cameras are illegal, however any recordings stored must be given protection from potential misuse for anybody who appears in the recordings.
The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) can provide advice on the legislation with regards to the recording of public areas, which includes particular guidelines regarding signs to the public of your use of a CCTV system. To circumvent any issues from the legal obligations it is recommended that you bring in a reputable and certified CCTV installation specialist in Southwater to install your CCTV system and any related products.
You probably won't need planning permission for your exterior CCTV security cameras unless you're mounting them on a listed building, you live in a conservation area, you live in a national park or you are in a place of special scientific interest. In all other homes in Southwater you can avoid the need for planning permission by making sure that your cameras are mounted at least 2.5m above ground level and that they don't project out a distance of more than 1 metre.
PICKING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
Spending budgets shouldn't have to be a deciding factor when it comes to picking the perfect CCTV system for your home or business in Southwater and there are options on the market to suit everyone. Your situation may dictate that all you require is a solitary CCTV camera to monitor your front entrance, whilst a larger premises may need a selection of cameras with motion detecting technology that's connected to a security company's monitoring service. A responsible security camera installer in Southwater will consider all your constraints and requirements to offer you the most effective CCTV security system at an acceptable price.
They'll also make sure that your spending budget isn't exceeded or attempt to sell you equipment that is not necessary. Irrespective of how much cash you decide to shell out on a CCTV system, a decent installation company will provide you with the very best service, from purchase to installation and maintenance. You should always get itemised quotations from at least 3 different CCTV companies and ensure that you fully understand the service and equipment they're providing.
Certain locations may require discrete cameras, whilst others may call for a more noticeable presence in order to act as a deterrent to potential intruders. A skillfully installed CCTV camera system has been shown through police interviews with ex-thieves to provide the biggest deterrent to potential burglars.
Perhaps you've bought a CCTV system from an online retailer or an electronics store, and require professional assistance in its fitting. A local Southwater professional alarm and security installation specialist will still fit your CCTV equipment, even if you've not purchased it through them. They will be trained and familiar with all makes of CCTV cameras and will offer you a professional service to fit and configure your brand new system.
ACCREDITATION, STANDARDS, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When selecting CCTV equipment for your Southwater property always watch out for the British Standard (BS EN 62676) mark. These standards give installation teams guidance on the recommendations for CCTV systems and how well they should operate. Equipment can be installed that does not have the British Standards kitemark, however the reliability and quality will not have been thoroughly scrutinised and you might not have any recourse after its been installed if it does not meet your high expectations.
