CCTV is just one line of defence against crime, and works best when combined with other measures, such as door and window locks, keeping trees and foliage cut back, security lights and a burglar alarm. If you’re thinking of getting a home CCTV system for the outside of your property, this must comply with privacy laws. This means making sure that your cameras aren’t pointed at public space or other people’s houses or gardens.
If you’re using CCTV cameras outside, we ensure they’re weatherproof to withstand wet weather conditions. Wireless cameras are available, but we still have to run a cable to a power source. We position cameras where they can’t be tampered with but can be accessed for maintenance and cleaning.
Indoor CCTV cameras come in three types: wired, wireless and powerline networked (these plug into your electrical sockets and transmit images to a storage device). Wireless cameras are not recommended inside the home unless the signal can be encrypted, as anyone within range and using a suitable receiver would be able to view the images. Most home systems use a PC hard drive or standalone digital video recorder (DVR). The main cctv system technology is now IP, with the benefit of POE (single cat5 carrying the power and the picture to the `NVR`). Our NVR’s also allow for ease of connectivity to your CCTV system using a smart phone such as an iPhone or iPad.
It all sounds abit technical with the use of poe, nvr,ip, dvr, hd, tvi, cvi and so on, it`s just lucky we can advise you on the meanings of all of it if required, or you could just leave it to us, we sell IP systems which we can demo a system, supply and install and all without the need for an exam.
