TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS

Analogue CCTV Systems - These are the conventional camera setups that can record and monitor using a multi-camera installation. DVR's are used to store the recorded images and video clips, and viewing from a remote location is possible on a smartphone or tablet by linking it to the internet. If police inspection is necessary, recorded video can quickly be transferred over to a DVD/CD or USB. These don't require a connection to the web to function successfully, as they are designed to be standalone systems, and can be used as such if this is all that is needed.

IP Systems - Wireless cameras hook up with local equipment using their own network (intranet), or can be connected to an internet router for the transmission of their video signals. Hooked up to a computer or DVR, every camera has its own identity and IP address. IP systems can also send images, video and notifications direct to your mobile, consequently adding a further security layer by preventing an intruder from removing video evidence from an on-site DVR. To prevent any unauthorised viewing of the images and video, the security and encryption must be configured properly.

Cloud Systems - These CCTV systems record to a remote storage location based in the internet "cloud". So long as your CCTV system can connect to the net, either via a router as in IP cameras, or via the DVR in an analogue system, it will have the capacity to use cloud storage. These CCTV systems are generally used in combination with monitoring companies who charge an annual or monthly fee to keep your property in Wotton-under-Edge monitored.

LIGHTING FOR CAMERAS

Modern day CCTV cameras often come complete with built in infrared LED lighting to enable use in low light conditions. The images captured by an infrared may be of a fractionally poorer resolution when compared with those captured in normal daylight and they will also always be in black and white because of the basic characteristics of low light recording devices. It's quite possible, if you discover your night vision resolution is not good enough for your requirements, to put in specialist lamps that produce a natural light source for your CCTV cameras. These can be set to only switch on if the camera detects movement, and they provide you with the best options for recording colours under artificial light conditions.

If you're using motion sensor security lights with a CCTV system, you have to make sure that the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's gardens and homes, or shine straight onto a road.

THE LAW AND CCTV

You're governed by the regulations of the 2018 Data Protection Act, if your CCTV system captures any public areas or a neighbour's property. That's not to suggest you are not able to record any activity or make use of your cameras, only that any video footage must be safeguarded in accordance with the regulations outlined in the Act.
