CCTV Installation Witham Essex (CM8): With technology improvements and reduced costs, CCTV cameras have become common in Witham on both domestic and commercial buildings. Nevertheless the security benefits can be squandered if cameras are installed improperly or the CCTV system's plan has been poorly designed. To avoid any design issues and get the best from any security camera system it is best to use a professional Witham installation company with a lot of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - These are the standard systems that can record and monitor using a multi-camera installation. They're able to record images and video to locally sited Digital Video Recorders (DVR) and can provide a link to the internet for remote viewing via your tablet, laptop or smartphone. The stored images can be transferred to a DVD/CD or USB for inspection and identification of suspects by the police for a criminal investigation. The web connection is optional, because these CCTV setups are intended to function as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - These cameras can be linked to a wide area network, a local intranet or through the internet for providing recording and monitoring. The DVR within an IP CCTV system has got a secure gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, while at the same time having the capacity to connect through an internet router for monitoring purposes. IP cameras can additionally send video, images and alarm notifications straight to your mobile, therefore adding an extra layer of security by stopping a burglar or intruder from destroying evidence on a local DVR. It should be emphasised that passwords and other security features have to be sufficiently strong on IP equipment and cameras to prevent any unwelcome viewing of your CCTV recordings.
Cloud Based CCTV - CCTV cameras use an internet connection via a secure encrypted server to store and save all images and video footage in what is known as the "cloud". Provided that your CCTV system is able to connect to the internet, either via the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, it will have the capacity to use cloud based storage. To store data in the cloud usually involves a monthly or yearly payment and will be based on the quantity of data you wish to store, and whether or not you want your property in Witham by a professional CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night vision using infrared LED's comes as standard on the majority of CCTV systems. The images recorded by an infrared camera could be of a slightly poorer resolution in comparison with those taken in normal daytime light and they'll also always be in black and white due to the dynamics of low light recording equipment. It's quite possible, if you find your resolution at night does not meet your objectives, to install specialist security lamps that create a natural light source for your CCTV cameras. When linked with a CCTV camera system this lighting provides a natural looking source of light and can be adjusted to light only when your camera detects movement in its field of view.
If you're using motion sensor lights with a CCTV camera system, you must make sure the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's property and gardens, or shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV systems that record footage across the perimeter of your property, into a neighbour's garden or onto the highway, now come under the Data Protection Act. This does not mean that you're not allowed to use your cameras or record any activity, however it does mean any video recordings must be protected according to the regulations.
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) can provide advice on the regulations concerning the monitoring and recording of public areas, which includes particular information regarding signage to the public of your use of CCTV. You can ensure all legal requirements are met by employing a reliable CCTV company in Witham for the installation of your CCTV camera system.
Planning permission for any CCTV system placed on the exterior of your home will need to be checked if you're mounting them onto 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 buildings in Witham providing the security cameras do not protrude from your exterior walls by more than a metre and they're fitted at least 2.5 mtrs from the ground.
PICKING THE RIGHT CCTV SYSTEM
It should be easy enough to identify a good CCTV system that suits your security requirements and also meets your budget. From a simple internal camera to capture exit and entry, to a multi-point IP camera system, with motion detecting alarm linked equipment and HD recording. A reliable security camera installer in Witham will evaluate all your constraints and requirements to provide you with the best CCTV apparatus at the right price.
They will also ensure your stated budget is not overstretched or try and palm you off with equipment that isn't needed. It shouldn't matter how much cash you invest in a CCTV system, an experienced company in Witham will take pride in providing the highest possible level of service at all times. Do not meekly accept the first estimate you get because it's always advisable to obtain a minimum of 3 quotations from different companies.
Certain zones may need discrete cameras, while others may call for a more noticeable presence to act as a deterrent to burglars. Keep in mind that interviews conducted with ex-burglars by police and insurance companies prove that professionally installed CCTV is the number one deterrent in making a would be intruder move on to a less protected home.
It might be the case that you have purchased an off the shelf CCTV system and need expert assistance with the installation.
