IP Cameras - Using Internet Protocols (IP), these cameras hook up with an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transfer their video and images. Each CCTV camera has its own IP address and connects to a specific gateway on a DVR or computer system. The advantage with IP cameras is the capability to record video and images to a remote location, such as your smartphone, so any relevant video data can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. It must be emphasised that passwords and other security features should be strong enough on IP equipment and cameras to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your CCTV system.

Cloud Based Systems - Cameras use an online connection via a secure encrypted server to store all video and images in what is known as the "cloud". So long as your CCTV equipment can connect to the internet, either through a router as in IP cameras, or via the DVR in an analogue system, they will have the capacity to use cloud storage. The storing of data in the cloud generally requires a monthly or annual charge and will be based upon how much data you intend to store, and whether you want your videos monitored by a professional CCTV security company.

Night vision by means of infrared LED lighting typically comes as standard on the vast majority of CCTV systems. Infrared cameras record black and white images but still deliver a similar resolution as that recorded in full daylight. If you consider that the resolution using infrared cameras is not sufficiently good for your needs, you could install external lighting sources that provide a natural light. These lamps can provide a daylight effect for your system, as well as delivering brighter lights when any motion is detected by your camera.

Motion sensor lighting can be used alongside CCTV nonetheless, as with any such lighting they mustn't shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists or into neighbour's properties.


Cameras which record or monitor your property and outside areas don't come under the Data Protection Act unless they capture any public areas, or neighbouring property; regardless how modest the area covered might be. This doesn't mean you're not allowed to use your CCTV system or monitor activity on your property, however it does mean any video recordings have to be safeguarded as outlined by the legislation.
