CCTV Installation Thatcham Berkshire (RG18): CCTV systems and security cameras in Thatcham have become a common sight over the last ten years due mostly to improvements in technology and ever falling costs. Nevertheless the security benefits can be squandered if cameras are positioned improperly or the CCTV system's plan has been improperly designed. If you're looking for improvements in security by fitting a CCTV system it is strongly suggested you use a reputable and professional CCTV installation firm in Thatcham.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - Can have multiple cameras to record all aspects of your property, both inside and outside. Analogue systems can be installed to take still frames or provide constant video recording and transmit them to a local DVR (digital video recorder) for storage and viewing. The stored images can be copied to a USB drive or DVD/CD for identification of subjects and inspection by police and other authorities in a criminal investigation. They are intended to work as an independent CCTV system with an entirely optional connection to the internet.
Internet Protocol Systems - Cameras can be connected to a wide area network, a local intranet or through the internet for providing recording and monitoring. Each individual camera has got a unique IP address through which they are connected to a DVR or computer system. The main advantage with IP cameras is the capability to record video and images to a remote location, including your mobile, so any identifying data cannot be deleted by the intruder on site. Security needs to be properly set-up to avoid undesired individuals from tapping into your footage.
Cloud Based Systems - Uses a secure encrypted gateway to record footage to the "cloud". Any CCTV security system, IP or analogue, which has got a net connection is able to store their video footage to a cloud based server. To store data in the "cloud" generally involves a monthly or yearly payment and will be based upon how much data you want to store, and whether or not you want your home in Thatcham by a CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night vision through the use of infrared LED's usually comes as standard on many CCTV cameras. Infrared cameras record black and white images but should still deliver similar resolution to that recorded in full daylight. If there's a large difference in resolution, it may be possible to install additional security lighting with specialist lamps to create something close to natural light. When combined with a CCTV camera system this lighting generates a natural looking source of light and can be adjusted to light only when the camera senses motion in its field of view.
Take care if using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so you don't annoy nearby neighbours or shine directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV cameras that record over the perimeter of your property, into a nearby garden or onto the street, now come under the Data Protection Act. This doesn't make them illegal, it just means that your recordings are regulated.
