CCTV Installation Bursledon Hampshire (SO31): Security cameras and CCTV systems have become a common sight in Bursledon over the last 10 years, thanks mainly to ever falling costs and technology improvements. But the security benefits can be diminished if cameras are sited improperly or the CCTV system has been poorly designed. To avoid any installment issues and get the best from any security camera system it's always best to use a professional Bursledon installation firm with plenty of CCTV experience.
TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Equipment - The traditional CCTV system which can have a multi-camera installation feeding into fixed recording equipment. Analogue style systems can be installed to take still frames or provide constant recording or video and transfer them to a local DVR (digital video recorder) for viewing and storage. The recorded videos and images can be copied to a CD/DVD or USB drive for inspection and identification of suspects by the police and other authorities in any criminal investigation. These are intended to work as a standalone CCTV system with an optional connection to the web.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Using Internet Protocols (IP), these cameras connect to an internet connection or a wireless intranet to transmit their video and images. Each of the cameras has its own unique IP address and links to a gateway on a computer system or DVR. The advantage with IP systems is the opportunity to record images and video to another location, including your smartphone, so that any identifying data cannot be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the security features and encryption must be configured correctly to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your recorded material.
Cloud Based CCTV - CCTV cameras employ an internet connection via an encrypted server to save and store all images and video in what is known as the "cloud". So long as your CCTV system can connect to the net, either through a router as in IP cameras, or via an analogue DVR system, they will be capable of accessing cloud based storage. Cloud recording usually carries a monthly or annual fee which is determined by how much space is required on the servers and whether you need 24 hour monitoring by a security firm.
LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS
Most cameras on sale nowadays come with some type of infrared lighting built in to enable video recording in even the gloomiest areas. Any infrared CCTV camera will record video in black and white at night and at a fractionally lower resolution when compared to the device's daylight footage. If you think that the resolution using infrared is not sufficient for your CCTV's requirements, you might be able to install extra security lighting to provide a natural light. These lighting can produce "daylight" conditions for your CCTV cameras, as well as delivering a bright light when any motion is detected by a camera.
Take care if you're using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so as not to irritate neighbours or shine light directly on road traffic.
CCTV AND THE LAW
Residential CCTV systems that record footage over the boundary of your property, into a neighbour's garden or onto the highway, now come under the Data Protection Act. This Act doesn't mean its illegal to use these CCTV cameras, however any data stored on the system must be safeguarded from potential misuse for any person who features in the video recordings.
There are specific regulations on signs and notices for your CCTV camera system if you're monitoring and recording a public area or property belonging to some other person, and the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) should be contacted for advice. You can guarantee all legal requirements are satisfied by choosing an established CCTV installation company in Bursledon for the installing of your CCTV security system.
Planning permission for a CCTV system placed externally to your home may be needed if you live in a national park, you're in a place of scientific interest, you live in a conservation area or you're mounting them onto a listed building. In other properties in Bursledon you can avoid planning permission by making sure your cameras and lights are raised at least 2.5 mtrs above ground level and that they don't stick out a distance of greater than one metre.
PICKING THE BEST CCTV SYSTEM
You should be able to find a decent CCTV camera system that matches your security prerequisites and also fits your allotted budget. Your circumstances may dictate that all you require is a single CCTV camera to cover your front door, while a larger property may need multiple cameras with motion detection technology that's linked to a security firm's monitored alarm service. A certified CCTV company in Bursledon will evaluate your individual requirements and recommend a camera system that suits your circumstances and needs.
An honest Bursledon CCTV installation contractor will also conform to your spending budget and make certain that you receive the most effective CCTV system you can afford. You should count on the highest levels of service for any installation from a professional CCTV company, irrespective of your budget. It's generally a wise idea to get at least 3 different itemised quotations for the CCTV system you want to put in.
You might wish to keep your CCTV cameras discrete from the public eye, or then again you may need them to act as a physical deterrent by being more visible. It has frequently been shown through insurance interviews with ex-burglars and police reports, that carefully-located, expertly installed, and highly visible CCTV security cameras are the most effective deterrent to opportunistic criminals.
If you've purchased CCTV equipment from an electronics shop or an online store, you are still able to get specialist assistance in its installation and configuration. Any local Bursledon alarm and security installation firm will still fit your CCTV system, even if you did not purchase it directly from them. They will be familiar and trained with all manufacturers of CCTV equipment and will provide a professional service to fit and setup your system.
ACCREDITATION, STANDARDS, TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS
Camera equipment that is installed on your Bursledon house needs to conform to British Standards for CCTV systems, BS EN 62676. Such standards give guidance to installation teams on the recommendations for CCTV security systems and how well they should function. If you've got non standard equipment fitted and it does not live up to the quality levels usually provided by the installation company, or your own requirements, you may find it difficult to rectify the situation later.
Trades-people, contractors and CCTV companies should be members of at least one accepted trade association within the security and camera sector. The UK's principal security trade bodies include:
The Security Institute (SI) - The Security Institute is the biggest of all the trade associations for security companies. It has over three thousand registered members from all aspects of the security sector and promotes professional competence, best working practices and setting the highest security standards for all its members.
Secure By Design (SBD) - SBD is an official police security initiative aimed at reducing crime. The SBD works closely with architects, building firms and security companies to improve the security of domestic and industrial premises all over the UK.
The British Security Industry Association - This is one of the biggest organisations in the British security industry. Registered BSIA members are accredited security companies and contractors who comply with all ISO 9000 regulations and British Standards, and follow the security industry's Code of Practice.
The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) - As an independent UK trade organisation, the National Security Inspectorate promotes the security and fire safety sector by recommending the most reputable CCTV and security firms throughout the country. The NSI membership application is a rigorous process and involves demonstrations of a firm's capability to install, maintain and design a range of CCTV, fire and security systems. They also have to show a footpath, an adjacent road, a neighbours' garden, a communal area, an alleyway, and even the suitability of the company's premises, are all covered by their rigorous codes of practice. Fire & rescue services, insurance providers in the UK and EU all recognise NSI members as having the highest working standards within the fire safety and security industry.
