CCTV Installation Witney Oxfordshire (OX28): CCTV systems and security cameras have become a common sight in Witney over the last decade, thanks mainly to improvements in technology and ever falling costs. An improperly sited CCTV system may not however provide the level of security that your are searching for in your premises. It is strongly suggested that if you are thinking of installing CCTV cameras on your propertyin Witney, you use the knowledge and experience of a certified CCTV installation service.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - The conventional CCTV setup which can have a multi-camera installation feeding into fixed recording equipment. Analogue systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and send them to an on-site Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for storage and viewing. The DVR will have the facility to transfer stored data to an external storage device, such as a USB drive, or could have an inbuilt DVD or CD recorder to permit images and video to be given to the police as criminal evidence. The connection to the web is entirely optional, given that these CCTV installations are intended to operate as a standalone system.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Using Internet Protocols (IP), these cameras hook up to a wireless intranet or internet connection to transfer their video and images. The DVR in an IP CCTV system has a secured gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, whilst at the same time having the capacity to connect through a router for monitoring purposes. Being able to send a live stream to your smart phone is a big advantage of IP cameras, and the video and still images can also be saved onto your device for additional security. It must be stressed that security features such as passwords need to be sufficiently strong on IP cameras and equipment to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your CCTV footage.
Cloud Based CCTV - Uses an encrypted secure gateway to record camera footage into the "cloud". If your CCTV system can connect to the net, either by means of the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they will have the capability to use cloud based storage. The storing of data in the "cloud" generally requires a monthly or yearly payment and is actually based upon the quantity of data you want to store, and whether you want your videos monitored by a CCTV company.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Night vision using infrared LED lighting normally comes as standard on most CCTV cameras. Any infrared CCTV camera will record black and white images in the night time and at a somewhat lower resolution than the device's daylight recordings. If you think that the resolution using infrared is not adequate for your requirements, it is possible to install extra security lighting to create something nearer to daylight. These lights can produce a daylight effect for your cameras, as well as delivering brighter lights when any motion is identified by the system.
Take care if you're using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so you don't aggravate neighbours or shine lights directly onto a road.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Domestic CCTV cameras that record across the boundary of your property, onto the highway or into a nearby garden, are now covered by the Data Protection Act. The Data Protection Act does not mean that its illegal to use these CCTV system, however any footage stored on the system must be given protection from potential misuse for any person who appears in the video recordings.
There are particular requirements on signs and notices for your CCTV camera system if you're going to be recording and monitoring a public place or an area belonging to another individual, and the Information Commissioner's Office should be contacted for advice. To sidestep any issues with your legal obligations you'll want to employ a reliable and professional CCTV installation service in Witney to install your CCTV cameras and any related devices.
If your property is in a conservation area, is in an area of scientific interest, is within a national park or is listed, you'll have to check with the local authority if planning permission is required. You should also be able to avoid planning permission if any camera and lighting system is fitted at least 2.5m above the ground and does not project more than 1 metre from the wall of your house.
CHOOSING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
