Analogue Equipment - Using a series of cameras, an analogue CCTV system uses a standard set up to record and monitor activity throughout a property. Recording video footage and images onto DVR's, these systems can also send data to your tablet, smartphone or laptop via an internet link. Video clips can be copied to a CD/DVD or USB stick for inspection by the police where necessary. These are designed to work as an independent CCTV system with an entirely optional internet connection.

Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - With IP systems, monitoring and recording can be accomplished with a wide area network, via a local intranet or through the internet. Each camera has got its own IP address and links to a gateway on a computer system or DVR. The main advantage with IP systems is the capacity to record images and video to a remote location, including your mobile, so any relevant video data cannot be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the encryption and security features need to be set up correctly to prevent any unauthorised viewing of your cameras and their recordings.

Cloud CCTV Systems - To record footage onto "cloud" storage, these systems employ a secure encrypted gateway. If your CCTV apparatus is able to connect to the net, either via a router as in IP cameras, or via the DVR in an analogue system, they will have the capacity to use cloud storage. To store data in the "cloud" typically requires a monthly or annual fee and is based upon the size of data you wish to store, and whether or not you want your home in Old Basing by a CCTV company.

Contemporary CCTV cameras often come complete with built in infrared LEDs for dark conditions. An infrared camera will capture a black and white image but will still deliver a similar resolution as that recorded in daylight. You'll be able to install extra lighting to create something nearer to daylight, if you find that the resolution produced by infrared cameras is not good enough for your needs. These can be configured to only turn on if movement is detected by the camera, and they offer the best possible options for capturing colours under artificial lighting.

If you're using motion sensor lights with a CCTV camera, you must ensure the light doesn't shine brightly on neighbour's gardens and property, or shine directly into the eyes of passing motorists.


Domestic CCTV cameras that record across the perimeter of your property, into a nearby garden or onto the highway, are now covered by the 2018 Data Protection Act. This doesn't make them illegal, it simply means that any footage that you record is subject to the legislation.
