Fordingbridge CCTV Installation and Maintenance

CCTV Installation Fordingbridge Hampshire (SP6): The improvements in technology of CCTV and security cameras, and their ever reducing prices, means that they're common on commercial and domestic premises in Fordingbridge.

Analogue Equipment - These are the conventional camera setups that can record and monitor activity using multiple cameras. Analogue systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and transfer them to a local Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for viewing and storage. The DVR should have the facility to transfer stored data to an external device, like a USB stick, or could have an inbuilt DVD or CD recorder to enable images and video to be given to the relevant authorities for evidence purposes. They are designed to work as a standalone CCTV system without the need for a connection to the web.

Internet Protocol Systems - IP cameras connect with a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their images and video. Each camera has got its own IP address which is used to link them to a DVR or computer system. Having the capability to send notifications to your mobile is a big advantage of IP systems, and the video and still images can also be saved onto your device for increased security. However, the encryption and security features must be configured correctly to prevent any unsanctioned viewing of your camera footage.

Cloud Based CCTV Systems - These systems record to a remote storage location based in the internet "cloud". Providing that your CCTV equipment can connect to the internet, either through the DVR in an analogue system or directly through a router as in IP cameras, they'll have the capacity to use cloud based storage. Cloud recording typically carries a monthly fee which will be determined by how much space is required on servers and whether you require remote monitoring by a security company.

Contemporary CCTV cameras will often come complete with integrated infrared lighting to enable use in dark conditions. An infrared camera will record a black and white image but should still deliver a similar resolution to that recorded in normal daylight. It's quite possible, if you think your resolution at night doesn't meet your objectives, to put in special lamps that generate a natural light source for your CCTV cameras. These provide you with the best chance of capturing colours in artificial lighting, and can be configured to only turn on if your camera detects movement.

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


Systems that monitor or record your own property aren't covered by the Data Protection Act unless they capture any areas of public, or neighbour's property; regardless how minimal the captured area may be. This does not mean you're not allowed to use your CCTV system or monitor activity on your property, but it does mean that any video footage has to be protected according to the legislation.

The Security Institute (SI) - The largest of all the trade associations for security professionals, the SI is recognised and respected within the security sector.

The National Security Inspectorate - This independent trade body only acknowledges top quality companies in the security industry.

In many circumstances, people ask friends or family members if they have anybody they would recommend, and will typically take their word and employ the CCTV installer that they are sent to. Is this really the best way to pick your CCTV technician? Maybe not, because your relative or friends' needs could have been different than yours, but it's a decent place to start. Word of mouth is usually seen as better than commercial advertising and reviews, because it gives a better perception of quality, and comes from the mouth of someone who you trust. It is still wise to get at least 3 or 4 quotes from other companies in the area, even if someone you know has recommended a particular CCTV technician.

Dummy CCTV Cameras Fordingbridge

If you cannot afford genuine CCTV cameras or don't want to go to the extent of having a full-blown security system installed, there's always the option of putting up some dummy/fake CCTV cameras instead. Dummy CCTV cameras are substantially cheaper than the real thing, and you could benefit from having dummy/fake CCTV cameras put in, whether you are a householder or a business owner in Fordingbridge. These days, the fake cameras that are available to purchase are extremely realistic, and to the untrained eye, are difficult to distinguish from the genuine product.

Dummy CCTV Cameras Fordingbridge (SP6)

We are often told that an experienced career criminal will rarely be duped by a dummy camera and that only the opportunist thief will be discouraged by this kind of deterrent. A fake camera, should however, make your home far less appealing to burglars than a totally unshielded one having no camera at all. Therefore, these gadgets can provide some benefits, as a considerable proportion of criminal activity in Fordingbridge is undoubtedly opportunistic.

If you are able to make a burglar think twice about targeting your home or premises, there is a pretty good chance that they will look somewhere else, and most criminals in Fordingbridge, or anywhere else for that matter, much prefer premises that they can easily break into.

Dummy CCTV cameras can be bought in all sizes and shapes and range in price from as little as £6 to £30 or £40 for more sophisticated versions. They're available for use both internally and externally.
