CCTV Installation Tewkesbury Gloucestershire (GL20): Security cameras and CCTV systems have become commonplace in Tewkesbury over the last ten years or so, thanks mainly to ever falling costs and improvements in technology. Yet a badly installed CCTV system may not provide the security benefits you're interested in. To eliminate any design or installment issues and get the best performance from any security system it is advisable to use a professional installation firm in Tewkesbury with lots of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - The conventional CCTV setup which can have multiple cameras fed into a stationary recording device. They're capable of recording continuous video or still images, save them to an on-site DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be connected to the internet for remote monitoring using a tablet or smartphone. The stored images can be removed via USB drive or DVD/CD for inspection and identification of suspects by the police for a criminal investigation. Whilst many DVR's do have a web connection as standard, they are really designed to work as standalone systems.
Internet Protocol Systems - IP cameras hook up to a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their footage. Each camera has a unique IP address which is used to link them to a computer system or DVR. One of the advantages with IP cameras is the opportunity to record images and video to a remote location, such as your mobile, so that any relevant video data cannot be deleted by the intruder on site. It has to be emphasised that passwords and other security features need to be sufficiently strong on IP equipment and cameras to stop any unsanctioned access to your CCTV recordings.
Cloud Systems - Employ an encrypted secure gateway to record to the "cloud". If your CCTV equipment can connect to the web, either by means of a router as in IP cameras, or via an analogue DVR system, it will be capable of accessing cloud based storage. Cloud recording generally carries a monthly fee which depends on the amount of space required on the servers and whether or not you need 24 hour monitoring by a security firm.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night time vision through the use of infrared LED's usually comes as standard on the majority of CCTV systems. Any infrared CCTV camera will record video in black and white in the night time and at a marginally lower resolution when compared to the camera's daylight recordings. If you consider the resolution using infrared isn't sufficiently good for your CCTV's requirements, you could install extra security lighting to generate a more natural light. When attached into a CCTV security system these lights generate a natural looking light source and can also be configured to light only when your camera senses motion in its vicinity.
If you're using motion sensor security lights with a CCTV system, you have to make sure that the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's gardens and property, or shine directly into any oncoming traffic areas.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV systems which record over the edges of the boundary of your property, into a neighbouring garden or onto the highway, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This does not make them illegal, it simply means that your recordings are subject to the legislation.
The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) can provide guidance on the legislation regarding the monitoring and recording of public or neighbouring areas, which includes precise guidelines regarding disclosure signs to passers-by of your use of CCTV. An experienced CCTV installation firm in Tewkesbury will guarantee that all legal obligations are met in regards to recording public areas and the positioning of cameras, which a do it yourself installation may not fully adhere to.
Planning permission for any CCTV system placed on the exterior of your property will need to be checked if you're in a place of scientific interest, you're mounting them on a listed building, you live in a conservation area or you live in a national park. In all other houses in Tewkesbury you can avoid the need for planning permission by ensuring your security cameras are mounted at least 2.5 metres above the ground and that they do not stick out a distance of more than 1 metre.
PICKING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
Financial budgets shouldn't need to be a decisive factor when it comes to choosing the ideal CCTV security system for your property in Tewkesbury and there are models on the market to suit everyone. The most economical CCTV camera system may still be able to provide you with remote monitoring and recording from only one camera, while a multi-device, motion detection system connected to your burglar alarm and remotely monitored by a specialist company, will naturally be at the higher end of the budget range. A scrupulous and experienced CCTV installation service in Tewkesbury will only install equipment that matches your specific situation.
An honest Tewkesbury CCTV installation contractor will also stick to your budget and make certain that you end up with the most suitable CCTV system you can afford. It should not matter how much money you invest in a CCTV system, an experienced company in Tewkesbury will pride themselves on the highest level of service. You should always get itemised estimates from at least 3 different companies and ensure you understand fully the service and equipment they are offering.
Certain places may need hidden cameras, whilst others might call for a more visible presence to act as a deterrent to intruders. It has frequently been proven through police reports and insurance interviews with ex-burglars, that well-positioned, skillfully installed, and highly visible CCTV cameras are the best deterrent to opportunistic criminals.
Maybe you have bought a CCTV security system from an online retailer or an electronics store, and require assistance with its fitting and setup. You don't need to have purchased your CCTV system from your nearby Tewkesbury professional security company in order to have them set it up on your behalf. They'll be familiar and trained with all brands of CCTV equipment and will offer you a professional service to install and setup your new system.
STANDARDS, ACCREDITATION, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
When picking out CCTV equipment for your Tewkesbury property only consider the British Standard (BS EN 62676) mark. The standards set down in BS EN 62676 specifies the performance parameters for the equipment, and instructions on how best to install and position the CCTV cameras for best effect. Equipment can be fitted that hasn't got the British Standards kitemark, but the reliability and quality will not have been evaluated and you might not have any recourse after installation if it does not meet up with your high expectations.

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) - The National Security Inspectorate is an independent trade association which promotes the security industry by offering recognition to the best companies.

A security must also demonstrate that they have vetted and trained staff effectively, have suitable vehicles and equipment for their area of expertise, and that their business premises are appropriate for promoting the security industry in the best light. Police forces, insurance companies, and fire & rescue services in the United Kingdom and the European Union all acknowledge NSI members as having the highest standards within the security industry.
The Security Institute - The SI is recognised and respected within the security sector, and as a result has the largest membership of professional contractors and technicians in Great Britain. The Security Institute has over three thousand affiliates from all aspects of the security sector and promotes professional competence, best working practices and setting the highest security standards for all its membership.
