CCTV

Despite our best to secure our property, if someone wants to break in, they inevitably will do. This is what makes CCTV (closed circuit television) so important, for both your home and business.

CCTV is now part of everyday life and is highly recommended by the London Metropolitan Police force as a way to combat crime and protect both your property and family.

In the UK there are as many as 2.5 million cameras on everything from cash machines to public transport.

The incorrect opinion is that CCTV systems are too expensive and only suitable for luxury homes or big spending businesses. But in fact they’re highly affordable, making them a crucial part of every property’s security.

CCTV is proven to reduce crime and people say the presence of this added security makes them feel safer.

CCTV benefits

There are a number of benefits for having home of business CCTV installed, including:

  • Deterrence

Just seeing a CCTV camera, even if it’s not switched on, is enough to deter potential burglars from your property. With this added security your property wouldn’t be seen as risk worthy and therefore not a good target for break-ins.

  • Feel safer

With a camera on the premises, residents or workers will feel much safer than without this added measure. With a proven success of deterring criminals it will give peace of mind that both the property and your family are safe from harm.

  • Prosecution

With CCTV you can catch thieves and criminals in the act and ensure a much likelier prosecution. CCTV is the ultimate crime deterrent and many will be instantly put off by the camera’s presence.

CCTV is becoming increasingly popular in the UK and a cost effective way of deterring crime.

Cctv FAQs

Do alarms deter burglars?

Visible alarm systems can deter burglars. There are a range of options for what happens when an alarm is triggered. For example, there are bells only, alarm receiving centre, and homeowner monitored alarms. These are all effective as deterrence methods, and which you choose will depend on your specific needs.

How many sensors do I need?

The number of sensors you need will depend on the size of your home. Most alarm systems feature 2-4 passive infrared sensors (PIRs) for motion detection, and 2-4 magnetic contact sensors on doors and windows. An alarm company will advise you of how many your property will need upon an inspecton.

Are wireless alarm systems reliable?

Modern wireless alarm systems are as reliable as wired systems. Wireless systems can transmit alerts as quickly and reliably as wired systems. They are also suitable for installation in more places as there does not need to be space to hide the wires.

Does CCTV work in the dark?

Most cameras have a night mode to capture video in the dark. They use an infrared sensor to detect infrared light. These pictures are black and white, but still retain plenty of detail. Cameras are also able to see and record in adverse conditions such as fog, dust and smoke.

Does CCTV deter crime?

Various studies have suggested that CCTV is an effective deterrent against home burglaries. In the event that a crime is committed on your property, well placed CCTV means you’ll have the evidence to help the police. It has been recorded consistantly that since CCTV systems have been installed, localised crime has fallen and has lead to more arrests.

Will my alarm system cause lots of false alarms?

Properly installed and calibrated alarm systems will very rarely trigger a false alarm. If you have pets you will need to use pet-friendly alarm systems. External sensors should be properly calibrated to avoid triggering in the wind or rain. NSI is a recognised standard for all alarm installations, check the NSI flag is displayed on an installers credentials.

Which CCTV camera should I get?

The type of camera that will be most effective will vary depending on the space you would like to monitor as well as the specific location. Professional CCTV installation companies can carry out a survey of your property and identify the key areas to monitor.

What are network enabled or IP cameras?

Network enabled/IP cameras are digital CCTV cameras. With these cameras, the video captured can be streamed over the internet anywhere in the world. Most manufacturers of IP cameras have a smartphone app that allows you to watch the video feed on your phone.
