Modern CCTV Surveillance Systems

The installation of CCTV Surveillance Systems in homes and businesses is becoming more and more common place, especially in urban areas. CCTV Installations are used to monitor airports, high streets, shopping malls and individuals who habitually commit crimes.

In homes, CCTV Installations can be used to protect property which is particularly vulnerable, such as ground floor apartments and houses where there is no one in residence for most of the day. If a particular property becomes a target, criminals may study the routine of residents and monitor the hours they are away from the property at work so they can plan their burglaries. CCTV Surveillance Systems can be set up to record the actions of intruders on DVRs which can then be given to the police so they can assist with carrying out their investigations and catching the culprits.

There is a range of technology which has been developed over the years to assist with crime prevention and detection, including the ability to link the CCTV Installations to the internet so that the property can be viewed over a network on a computer or iPhone. CCTV Surveillance Systems generally consist of cameras, a DVR and cabling.

Advanced CCTV Installations are available with remote systems and Wi-Fi connections. It depends on the clients’ requirements as to which system is installed, but a reputable CCTV Installation Company will be able to advise what is available and appropriate for the deployment of the CCTV Surveillance System. The type of system install will also will depend on the purpose of the CCTV Installation and the budget the client has available. CCTV Surveillance Systems can be designed to meet the client’s requirements, and components selected to suit the situation.

More advanced CCTV Surveillance Systems can deal with information from many sources and cameras. It may not even be necessary for the CCTV to be monitored constantly as the technology is available to alert operators when pre-determined people enter the area monitored by the cameras. In addition, the registration numbers of vehicles can be entered into the system and the operator alerted when the vehicle comes within range. For these information-driven CCTV Surveillance Systems the data must of course be accurate and up to date.

It need not be expensive to install a CCTV Surveillance System and some CCTV Installation Companies sell off the shelf kits for self installation. However, some level of expertise is required, and it may be more beneficial in the long run to engage a professional CCTV Installer to ensure that the system is set up correctly and to maximise the output. To get the best out of the CCTV Surveillance System, cameras must be strategically placed and video images must be clear and of good quality. Again, a good CCTVInstallation Company will carry out a site survey and advise on the best camera to suit the requirements. Once the types of cameras, screens and DVRs have been selected, the CCTV Installation Company will set up the and commission the equipment.
