Analogue CCTV - Can have a multi-camera installation to record all areas of your home, both outside and in. Analogue style systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and send them to a local Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for viewing and storage. The stored videos and images can be copied to a USB drive or DVD/CD for inspection and identification of suspects by the police for a criminal investigation. The internet connection is optional, given that these CCTV setups are designed to function as a standalone system.

IP Cameras - IP cameras hook up with an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transfer their video and images. Each of the cameras has got its own IP address and connects to a gateway on a DVR or computer system. Having the capability to send a live stream to your smartphone is a huge advantage of IP systems, and the video and still images can also be saved onto your device for increased security. Security needs to be set-up properly to avoid unwanted people from viewing your images and video.

Cloud Based CCTV - Cameras use an online connection via an encrypted and secure server to save and store all video and images in what they call a "cloud". If your CCTV equipment can connect to the web, either through the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they'll be capable of accessing cloud based storage. These systems are generally used with security monitoring companies who charge an annual or monthly fee to keep an eye on your property in Arbroath.

Most cameras on sale nowadays come complete with some form of infrared lighting built in to facilitate recording for even the darkest situations. Any infrared CCTV camera will record black and white video in the night time and at a somewhat lower resolution than the camera's daytime footage. It's possible, if you find your resolution at night is too low for your requirements, to fit special security lamps that create a more natural light source for your CCTV system. When attached into a CCTV system these lights deliver a natural looking source of light and can also be adjusted to light only when a camera detects some movement in its vicinity.

Be cautious if you're using security lighting with CCTV cameras, so you don't affect next door neighbours or shine light directly on road traffic.


If your CCTV cameras capture images from any public areas or a neighbouring property or garden you are subject to the regulations within the Data Protection Act. This does not make them illegal, it simply means that all captured footage is regulated.
