CCTV Installation Weston-super-Mare Somerset (BS22): CCTV systems and security cameras in Weston-super-Mare have become a common sight over the last 10 years thanks to technology improvements and reduced costs. Nevertheless the security benefits can be forfeited if cameras are positioned incorrectly or the CCTV system's plan has been improperly designed. If you are looking for ways to improve your security by installing a CCTV system it is strongly suggested you use an experienced and professional CCTV installation contractor in Weston-super-Mare.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue CCTV - These are the traditional systems that can monitor and record using a multi-camera installation. Analogue systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and send them to a locally sited DVR (digital video recorder) for storage. Recorded video can be copied to a USB flash drive or CD/DVD for police inspection if needed. The internet connection is optional, given that these CCTV setups are designed to operate as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol Systems - Cameras can be connected with a local intranet, a wide area network or through the internet to provide monitoring and recording. Each individual camera has its own IP address which is used to connect them to a DVR or computer system. IP cameras can also send pictures, video footage and notifications direct to your smartphone, subsequently adding a supplementary security layer by stopping an intruder from destroying evidence on an on-site DVR. It must be stressed that passwords and other security features should be strong enough on IP cameras and equipment to prevent any unwanted viewing of your CCTV footage.
Cloud Systems - Cameras use an online connection via a secure encrypted server to save and store all video and images in the "cloud". So long as your CCTV apparatus can connect to the internet, either via the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they will have the capability to use cloud storage. Such systems are generally used in combination with security monitoring companies who charge a monthly or annual fee to keep a close eye on your property in Weston-super-Mare.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most cameras on offer nowadays come equipped with some sort of integrated infrared lighting to support video recording for even the darkest areas. Infrared cameras record black and white images but should still produce similar resolution as that recorded in daylight. It is possible, if you find your resolution at night is too low for your requirements, to put in specialist lamps that create a more natural light source for your cameras. These offer you the best options for recording colours in artificial light conditions, and can be set to only light up if movement is picked up by the cameras.
Sensor security lights can be employed with cameras but, as with any such lighting they mustn't shine straight into the eyes of passing motorists or into neighbour's properties and gardens.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV systems that record footage across the boundary of your property, onto the highway or into a neighbour's garden, are no longer exempt from the Data Protection Act. This Act does not mean its illegal to use these cameras, however any footage stored on the system must be given protection from potential misuse for any individual appearing in the video footage.
If your cameras are able to record even a small area of public land, the Information Commissioner's Office has particular requirements on data protection and informational signage. To prevent any problems from the legal requirements it is wise to bring in a reputable and certified CCTV company in Weston-super-Mare to install your CCTV system and any related products.
Planning permission for a CCTV placed on the exterior of your property will need to be checked if you are putting them onto a listed building, you live in a national park, you live in a conservation area or you are in a place of scientific interest. You should also be able to avoid the need for planning permission if any lighting and camera system is installed at least 2.5 mtrs above ground level and does not stick out more than a metre from the wall of your property.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
Whatever your budget is you can find a CCTV security system that suits your needs. The least expensive system may still be able to offer remote monitoring and recording from only one camera, whilst a multi camera, motion detection system connected to your security alarm and monitored remotely by a security company, will obviously be at the high end of the budget range. A genuine and experienced CCTV installer in Weston-super-Mare will only recommend equipment you need to match your particular situation.
A genuine Weston-super-Mare CCTV installation company will also conform to your stated budget and ensure you get the best possible CCTV security system for your price range. No matter how much you decide to shell out on a CCTV system, a decent Weston-super-Mare installer will offer you the best service, from sales to installation and maintenance. You should always get itemised quotes from at least 3 different companies and make sure you fully understand the service and equipment that they're providing.
You might want to keep your surveillance cameras hidden from onlookers, or alternatively you may require them to act as an obvious deterrent by being noticeable. It's been shown through police reports and insurance interviews with ex-burglars, that well-located, skillfully installed, and visible CCTV cameras are the most effective deterrent to potential thieves.
Perhaps you have purchased a CCTV security system from an electronics store or online retailer, and need assistance with its fitting. Your local Weston-super-Mare alarm and security installation service will still fit your CCTV equipment, even if you didn't buy it from them. They'll be familiar and trained with all makes of CCTV cameras and will offer a specialist service to install and configure your new system.
TRAINING, ACCREDITATION, STANDARDS AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
Camera equipment installed in your Weston-super-Mare house should conform to British Standards for CCTV systems, BS EN 62676. These standards give guidance to installation teams on the requirements of CCTV security systems and how well they should operate. If you've got non standard equipment fitted and it does not meet the levels offered by the company, or your own expectations, you may find you have difficulty in rectifying the situation.
