Analogue CCTV Systems - Analogue systems employ a standard create that's able to record and monitor using several cameras. DVR's are used for storing the recorded video and images, and viewing remotely is possible on a smartphone or laptop by connecting it to the net. If police inspection is required, recorded footage can easily be copied to a DVD/CD or USB stick. While these can be hooked up to the internet, this isn't essential to the functioning of the system, and they can be employed as standalone systems when required.

IP Systems - With these CCTV systems the cameras can provide recording and monitoring through the internet, with a wide area network or via a local intranet. The DVR within an IP system has got a secure gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, while at the same time having the ability to connect through an internet router for monitoring and viewing purposes. IP cameras can also send video footage, pictures and notifications direct to your smart phone, consequently adding an extra bit of security by stopping a burglar or intruder from removing video evidence from an on-site DVR. To stop any uncertified viewing of the video and images, the security and encryption have to be configured correctly.

Cloud Systems - Through the use of a secure encrypted gateway, these systems record images and video onto a "cloud-based" storage location. Despite this seemingly massive advantage, it is also quite possible to use "cloud" technology with both analogue and IP systems. Normally used by security companies, these "cloud" systems will usually come with an annual or monthly charge.

Night time vision by means of infrared LED lighting normally comes as standard on most CCTV cameras. Because of the nature of low light recording devices the video footage will be in black and white, but will be of only a slightly lower resolution to that recorded in daylight. If there is a substantial difference in resolution, it may be possible to fit additional security lighting with special lamps to create a natural light. When linked to a CCTV system this lighting provides a brighter source of light and can also be programmed to light only when your camera detects some movement in its field of view.

If you decide to use motion sensitive lighting with your cameras, you must be sure that the lights do not shine directly into any nearby roads, or into a neighbour's property and garden.


Cameras which record or monitor your own property don't come under the Data Protection Act unless they capture a neighbouring property or a public area; no matter how small the area covered may be. The Data Protection Act demands that any data stored must be secured from misuse for any person showing up in the recordings, and doesn't mean the use of a CCTV system is in any way illegal.

Does CCTV Help Prevent Crime in Bridgend?

A common question that's often asked when considering home security is "Do CCTV cameras prevent crime?" Undoubtedly yes, appears to be the answer. To establish whether this is the case a number of studies have been done in Britain, and they have produced some illuminating results.

Based on research by a major insurance firm who interviewed former thieves, the 2 situations that are most likely to discourage a break-in are barking dogs and the presence of CCTV cameras. Not attracting any attention seems to be the main concern of the culprit when considering a break-in or crime.

Also the subject of a College of Policing review, CCTV surveillance in both private and public settings were found to reduce the likelihood of criminal activity. It was calculated that an average of 16% of criminal activity was prevented by CCTV cameras, and this data was based on 41 independent studies. For vehicle crimes, the figures were even more notable, with reductions of around 23%. This impact is apparently even more pronounced when the CCTV cameras are actively monitored.

Crooks are primarily thought to be put off by:

  • The fact that possible crime victims are taking additional security precautions.
  • The awareness that their risk of being arrested is increased.
  • The real risk of being caught.
  • The increased use of a monitored area by the public.
