IP Cameras - The cameras can be connected with a wide area network, a local intranet or through the internet for providing monitoring and recording. The DVR within an IP system has got a secured gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, whilst at the same time being able to connect through an internet router for monitoring and viewing purposes. The main advantage with IP systems is the opportunity to record images and video to a remote location, such as your smartphone, so any relevant footage can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the encryption and security features need to be configured properly to stop any unwanted viewing of your recorded material.

Cloud Based CCTV - These camera systems record to a remote storage location based in the internet "cloud". So long as your CCTV system is able to connect to the web, either via a router as in IP cameras, or via an analogue DVR system, they will be capable of accessing cloud storage. These systems are generally used in combination with monitoring companies who'll charge a monthly or annual fee to keep your property in Carluke monitored.

Night time vision by means of infrared LED's comes as standard on the majority of CCTV cameras. Any infrared CCTV camera will record video in black and white at night and at a somewhat lower resolution than those of the camera's daytime recordings. It is possible, if you think the night vision resolution doesn't meet your expectations, to fit special security lamps that create a better light source for your cameras. Such lamps can provide "daylight" conditions for your system, as well as delivering brighter lights when any movement is picked up by your equipment.

Be mindful if you're using security lighting with CCTV cameras, so you don't annoy next door neighbours or shine lights directly onto a road.


Domestic CCTV systems which record footage over the edges of the perimeter of your property, into a nearby garden or onto the street, now come under the Data Protection Act. This doesn't mean that you are not allowed to use your cameras or record any activity, but it does mean that any video footage has to be protected as outlined by the regulations.

Does CCTV Help Prevent Crime in Carluke?

A common question that is often asked in relation to home security is "Do CCTV cameras prevent crime?" The answer to that question seems to be - undoubtedly, yes. In recent years a number of studies have been conducted to establish whether or not this is the case, and some fascinating results have emerged from these investigations.

Based on research done by a leading insurance firm who spoke to former thieves, the 2 situations most likely to prevent a break-in are the presence of barking dogs and CCTV cameras. When considering a break-in or crime, the primary concern for the perpetrator seems to be not attract attention to themselves.

Also the theme of a College of Policing report, CCTV surveillance in both public and private environments were found to significantly reduce the likelihood of crime. Based on forty one independent studies, something like 16% of criminal offences were averted by CCTV cameras on average. And, even more impressive were the figures for vehicle crimes where approximately 23% of offences were prevented. This impact is apparently even more pronounced when the CCTV cameras in question are actually monitored.

It's thought that offenders are mostly deterred by:

  • The increased use of a monitored area by the public.
  • The fact that more security precautions are being taken by potential victims.
  • The perception that their risk of being caught and arrested is increased.
  • The real risk of being caught.

  • To reduce misconduct.

This should however be implemented with a a high level of care, since mutual trust is important in employer/employee relationships.
