CCTV Installation Winchester Hampshire (SO22): Security cameras and CCTV systems have become a common sight in Winchester over the last few years, mostly due to reduced costs and technology improvements. An inaptly positioned CCTV system might not however provide you with the sort of security benefits that you're searching for in your home. If you are looking for security improvements by the installation of a CCTV system it's recommended you use an experienced CCTV installation company in Winchester.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - The traditional CCTV setup which can have multiple cameras feeding into a fixed recording device. They're able to record still images or continuous video, save them to a local DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be internet linked for remote monitoring via laptop or smartphone. The DVR should have the facility to copy the data stored to an external storage device, such as a USB flash drive, or may have a DVD or CD recorder inbuilt to enable video and images to be handed to the relevant authorities as criminal evidence. The internet connection is optional, as these CCTV setups are intended to operate as a standalone system where necessary.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Internet Protocol cameras hook up with an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transmit their footage. Each of the cameras has got its own unique IP address and links to a specific gateway on a computer system or DVR. Having the capacity to send notifications to your smartphone is a major advantage of IP systems, and the still images and video can also be saved onto your device for increased security. However, the security features and encryption must be configured properly to stop any unauthorised viewing of your cameras and their recordings.
Cloud Based Systems - Use a secure encrypted gateway to record footage into the "cloud". Providing that your CCTV equipment is able to connect to the web, either via a router as in IP cameras, or via an analogue DVR system, it will be capable of using cloud based storage. To store data in the "cloud" typically requires an annual or monthly charge and is based upon how much data you wish to store, and whether or not you want your Winchester property by a CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Modern day CCTV cameras often come with integrated infrared lighting to allow for low light conditions. Any infrared camera will record video in black and white during the hours of darkness and at a slightly lower resolution than those of the camera's daytime recordings. It's quite possible, if you find the night vision resolution is not good enough for your requirements, to fit specialist security lamps that generate a natural light source for your cameras. These offer the most effective chance of capturing colours in artificial lighting, and can be configured to only light up if your camera detects movement.
Motion sensor security lights can be used alongside cameras but, as is the case with any security lighting they shouldn't shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists or into neighbour's properties.
CCTV AND THE LAW
If your CCTV system records any part of public areas or a neighbour's property or garden you are subject to the legislation within the Data Protection Act. This Act doesn't mean that the use of CCTV system are illegal, but any data stored must be given protection from potential misuse for anyone who features in the footage.
If your CCTV cameras are capable of recording even a small view of a public area, the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) has precise requirements on data protection and informational signage. An experienced CCTV installation company in Winchester will ensure that all legal requirements are satisfied in regards to the siting of cameras and recording public areas, which a DIY installation might not completely comply with.
You probably will not need planning permission for your exterior CCTV security cameras unless you live in a conservation area, you are placing them onto a listed building, you are in a place of special scientific interest or you live within a national park. In other houses in Winchester you can avoid planning permission by making sure your cameras and lights are fixed at least 2.5 mtrs above the ground and that they do not project out a distance of greater than 1 metre.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
It should be easy enough to find a decent CCTV camera system that satisfies your security prerequisites and also matches your spending budget. The most economical system may still provide you with remote recording and monitoring from only one camera, whilst a multi-device, motion detection system connected to your alarm and remotely monitored by a security company, will of course be at the high end of the budget range. A reputable security camera installer in Winchester will consider all your needs and constraints to offer you the most effective CCTV products at the right price.
A decent Winchester company will also do all that they can to ensure costs don't surpass your budget constraints, without needing to take any shortcuts. Irrespective of how much you spend on your CCTV equipment, a decent installer will give you the very best service, from purchase through to installation and aftercare. It's generally a wise idea to get at least 3 different estimates for the equipment you want to install.
Certain places may need hidden cameras, while others may call for a more visible presence to act as a deterrent to potential burglars. It has been proven through police reports and insurance interviews with ex-burglars, that carefully positioned, expertly installed, and visible CCTV security cameras are the best deterrent to potential intruders.
If you have bought CCTV equipment from an online store or electronics shop, you are still able to get specialist assistance in its installation. Any local Winchester CCTV company should be able to help even if you have not bought the equipment through them. With their experience of the different CCTV cameras available, they are likely to be familiar with any model you have purchased, and will be able to swiftly and efficiently set up and install your brand new equipment.
TRAINING, ACCREDITATION, STANDARDS AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
You should only consider CCTV systems that carry the BS EN 62676 British Standard for installation on your Winchester home or business premises. Such specifications give installation teams guidance on the requirements of CCTV security systems and how well they should operate. CCTV equipment can be fitted that hasn't got the British Standards kitemark, however the quality and reliability won't have been tested and you may not have recourse after the installation if it does not meet your high expectations.
The security sector is well regulated and a certified CCTV installer should have membership to a trade organisation, or have an affiliation with one or more established security associations. The UK's main security trade bodies include:
The Security Institute - The Security Institute is the biggest of all the industry associations for security companies. It has over three thousand affiliates from all aspects of the security sector and promotes professional competence, best working practices and setting the highest standards in security for all its members.
Secure By Design (SBD) - Created with the aim of crime reduction throughout Great Britain, the SBD is a government backed police security initiative. Secure by Design liaises closely with construction firms, security installers and designers to improve the physical security of domestic and commercial premises all over Great Britain.
The National Security Inspectorate - As an independent trade body, the National Security Inspectorate promotes the security and fire safety sector by sanctioning the most reputable CCTV and security firms throughout the country. The membership application procedure for the National Security Inspectorate is strict and involves demonstrations of a company's ability to maintain, plan and install a whole host of CCTV, fire and security systems. A company also has to supply records that relate to; company and personal liability insurances, employee vetting and training, equipment calibration and maintenance, and must also show that the company premises are appropriate for the NSI's rigorous requirements. Fire & rescue services, police forces, and insurance companies in the UK all acknowledge NSI members as upholding the highest possible standards within the security industry.
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) - This is one of the largest organisations within Britain's security industry. Every signed up member of the BSIA must be appraised and conform to British Standards, ISO 9000 regulations for security installations, and abide by all Codes of Practice for the industry.
