Which CCTV installation is right for me?
There are endless options regarding the type of system you can choose to protect your home or office. A basic 'no-frills' office CCTV system is ideal for general monitoring of your premises. However, if you need to provide evidence in court, then you will need a more particular, advanced set-up. If that is the case, professional installations with a registered CCTV specialist such as ourselves are highly recommended. Prior to installation, our security experts will walk you through the different types of CCTV security systems we can provide and which ones would be best for your building and requirements to help you make an informed decision.
Why Install CCTV?
CCTV is one of the best deterrents of theft and burglary at almost any residential or commercial property. Its mere presence, high profile cameras and warning signage can reduce the chances of theft, burglary, intrusion and anti-social behaviour significantly.
A report by the College of Policing shows that:
- The presence of CCTV reduces crime in car parks by 37%
- CCTV reduces crime in residential areas by 12%
- CCTV cameras deter drug-related and vehicle and property crime by 20% and 14% respectively
In the UK, a burglary takes place every 106 seconds. In the year ending September 2021, there were 258,594 reported burglary offences across England and Wales (according to the most recent crime report from the Office of National Statistics). Therefore, the installation of CCTV is absolutely essential if you want to protect and enhance the security of your home, office, belongings and loved ones.
CCTV Installation in the Office
For some workplaces, it is actually mandatory to install CCTV. Places such as banks, casinos and warehouses will often have an array of cameras, alarms and security controls around the premises to monitor customer and staff behaviour.
Offices and places of work are likely to contain expensive specialist equipment and an abundance of private data. As a result of a burglary in your workplace, your operations could be suspended for a short or prolonged period of time which would have a negative impact on your productivity and profits - not to mention the cost of having to replace or repair equipment and deal with legal proceedings. By simply installing a range of high-quality cameras and monitoring equipment, you could save yourself and your team a lot of stress, hassle and money.
CCTV Installation in the Home
Although not mandatory, many people are choosing to secure their homes with CCTV.
The installation of security alarms and cameras is easy to achieve within the home, however, there are a number of guidelines that the homeowner must be aware of before commencing their installation. These involve informing your neighbours about the presence of CCTV on the property, displaying appropriate signage and abiding by data protection regulations with any video and/or audio footage captured on your cameras or other monitoring devices.
