Any infrared camera will record video in black and white during the hours of darkness and at a somewhat lower resolution than those of the device's daytime recordings. If you discover your night vision resolution doesn't meet your objectives, you might be able to fit special lamps to generate a more natural light source for your CCTV system. As well as providing a bright light when any motion is detected by a camera, these lights can create artificial "daylight" conditions for your system.

As with any sort of security lighting it shouldn't be pointed where it can blind people driving vehicles on nearby roads, or shine straight onto nearby gardens.

Workplace CCTV Newton Abbot

Companies may opt to install CCTV in a workplace for numerous reasons:

  • To reduce misconduct.
  • To observe the performance of employees.
  • To make sure that health and safety rules are being adhered to.
  • To prevent or reduce violence, theft or other crimes.
  • To prevent damages to company property.

Given that mutual trust is important in employer/employee relations, this must be implemented with a high level of care. Employers must keep their staff notified about what's the intended usage of recorded imagery, how long recordings will be stored, what captured imagery is going to be used for, what information is going to be captured and stored and how monitoring will be undertaken.

Does CCTV Reduce Crime?

A typical question that is frequently asked when considering home security is "Do CCTV cameras help to prevent crime?" Most assuredly yes, appears to be the answer. Several studies have been carried out in Great Britain to verify whether or not this is the case, and the outcome has been fairly illuminating.

The two things that are most likely to forestall a break-in are the presence of CCTV cameras and barking dogs, according to research conducted by a reputable insurance firm who literally spoke to former thieves. It seems that the key issue or concern when contemplating a crime is to refrain from any action that's liable to attract attention.

Additional evidence that crime can be substantially reduced by the presence of CCTV surveillance cameras in both public and private environments was cited by the College of Policing. The numbers given were based on 41 independent studies, and it was calculated that on average 16% of criminal offenses were prevented when CCTV was present. For crimes relating to vehicles, the figures were even more impressive, with a reduction in the region of 23%. This impact is apparently even more striking when the cameras are actually monitored.

Burglars are primarily thought to be put off by:

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

CCTV and the Law

If you decide to install CCTV in your home in Newton Abbot and it's set to record images beyond your property boundaries, such as a footpath, a next door neighbours' garden or a public road, your use of the CCTV system will be regulated by the UK's data protection laws.

You're not actually breaking the law by recording such images, but as a "data controller" (which is what you are viewed as), you'll need to follow the current guidelines, as set out by the Data Protection Act.

It is still possible for you to capture such images, but you need to respect the legal rights of any person whose movements you're recording, and do it in a manner that conforms to the data protection laws.

If your CCTV system is recording pictures beyond your property perimeter:

  • You should only capture footage that's necessary for your purpose, and never more than is genuinely needed.
  • You must never allow family members or others to misuse the system, and should only use it for the purpose for which it in intended.
  • You should have a distinct reason for filming these images.
  • You should, if asked, explain your rationale for capturing these pictures.
  • You must erase images of individual people if they ask you to do this.
  • You must at all times comply with SARs (subject access requests) within one month.
  • You should only keep captured footage for as long as it's needed, and when it's not required, erase it frequently.
  • You must be able to guarantee the security of recorded footage and keep it away from prying eyes.
  • You should let folks know by means of signs, that you are using CCTV.

Will CCTV Lower My Insurance Costs?

This is naturally something that most property owners in Newton Abbot want to know, and to be honest "No" is the answer in most instances. A modest discount could be offered by some insurers, where CCTV is installed, but normally only when it is being used in conjunction with an intruder alarm or more elaborate security system. Many insurance companies will not even offer you money off for a security alarm unless it is professionally installed, which is of course the priciest option.

CCTV Insurance Costs Newton Abbot

The key factors that determine the price of your home insurance is the property value, how much contents insurance you need and the postcode where you live. In fact, the current crime rate in your area is the overriding factor in relation to insurance.

If you consider this from the insurers viewpoint, they might be wondering why you're adding CCTV at all, because the reality is that most residential homes in Newton Abbot are still not protected by cameras. This may even be viewed as a heightened risk by insurers, because maybe there has been a crime surge in your part of Newton Abbot, and this is why you are turning to CCTV.

All things considered, the real reasons for CCTV installation should be that it warns off intruders, it supplies evidence in case of an offence and it raises your feeling of security.
