CCTV Installation Swansea Wales (SA1): The technology improvements in security and CCTV cameras, and their reduced prices, means that they are common on residential and commercial properties in Swansea. An incorrectly sited CCTV system might not however provide you with the level of security that your are searching for in your property. To avoid any installment problems and get the best performance from any security camera system it is advisable to use a professional Swansea installation service with CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - Can have a multi-camera installation to monitor and record activity over all parts of your home, both outside and in. They are capable of recording continuous video or still images, save them to a locally sited Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring via smartphone or tablet. The stored videos and images can be transferred to a USB memory stick or CD/DVD for inspection and identification of suspects by police and other authorities for any criminal investigation. Despite the fact that many DVR setups have a web connection as standard, they are really designed to function as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - IP cameras connect with a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their recorded images. The DVR part of an IP system has a secure gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, whilst at the same time having the capability to connect via an internet router for viewing and monitoring purposes. The main advantage with IP cameras is the opportunity to record images and video to another location, such as your smartphone, so any identifying data can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the security features and encryption need to be set up correctly to stop any unauthorised viewing of your recorded material.
Cloud Based Systems - These camera systems record to a remote storage location based in a so-called "cloud" "cloud". So long as your CCTV system can connect to the web, either through the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they will have the capacity to use cloud based storage. Cloud recording usually has a monthly fee which depends on how much space is required on the servers and whether you need remote monitoring by a security company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern day CCTV cameras often come equipped with integrated infrared lighting to enable use in low light conditions. Any infrared CCTV camera will record black and white pictures in the night time and at a marginally lower resolution than those of the device's daytime recordings. It's quite possible, if you find your resolution at night doesn't meet your objectives, to set up specialist security lamps that yield a more natural light source for your CCTV system. These lighting equipment can produce a daylight effect for your CCTV cameras, as well as providing brighter lights when any movement is identified by your equipment.
Be careful if you're using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so you don't affect neighbours or shine light directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
If your CCTV system records any public areas or a neighbour's property or garden you're governed by the legislation within the Data Protection Act. This doesn't mean you are not allowed to use your cameras or record activity on your property, however it does mean that any video recordings must be safeguarded in keeping with the legislation.
There are precise regulations on notices and signs for your CCTV camera system if you happen to be monitoring and recording a public place or an area belonging to another person, and you should contact the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) for advice. To avoid any issues with your legal obligations it is best to employ a reputable and professional CCTV installation specialist in Swansea to install your cameras and any associated equipment.
Planning permission for any CCTV system placed on the exterior of your property will need to be checked if you are mounting them on a listed building, you are in a place of scientific interest, you live in a conservation area or you live in a national park. Planning permission can be avoided on the vast majority of other dwellings in Swansea providing the lights and cameras do not jut out from your outside walls by more than a metre and they are secured at least 2.5 mtrs from the ground.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
You should be able to find a good CCTV camera system that satisfies your security prerequisites and also matches your budget. Your circumstances might mean that all you require is a single CCTV camera to cover your front door, while a larger property may need multiple cameras with motion detecting technology that's linked to a security company's monitored alarm service. A genuine and experienced CCTV installer in Swansea will only install equipment you need to fit your particular situation.
A trustworthy Swansea installer should also do all that they can to make certain costs don't exceed your budget constraints, without making any shortcuts. You should expect the highest levels of service for any installation from an experienced CCTV installer, irrespective of how much you're prepared to spend. It is generally good advice to get a minimum of 3 different quotations for the security system you wish to install.
Certain areas might require hidden cameras, while others might call for a more visual presence as a deterrent to burglars. A professionally fitted CCTV camera system has been shown through interviews with ex-thieves to provide the most effective deterrent to would be intruders.
If you have bought CCTV equipment from an electronics shop or an online store, you can still get specialist assistance in its installation and configuration. You do not need to have purchased your CCTV equipment from your local Swansea CCTV installers in order to have them set it up on your behalf. With their experience of the different CCTV cameras available, they're likely to be familiar with the brand you have bought, and will efficiently and quickly set up and mount your new equipment.
STANDARDS, TRAINING, ACCREDITATION AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
Surveillance camera equipment that is installed in and around your Swansea house needs to conform to British Standards for CCTV systems, BS EN 62676. The standards highlighted in BS EN 62676 specifies the operational parameters for the equipment, and recommendations on how best to position and install the CCTV system for the best effect. CCTV equipment can be used that does not have the British Standards mark, but the reliability and quality will not have been scrutinised and you may not have any recourse after it has been installed if it doesn't meet up with your high expectations.
