Security for your home is always something that should be on your mind. Unfortunately, many areas in the UK have rising crime rates, especially in areas that aren’t always thought of as “rough” areas. Bad-doers usually head into less built-up areas and try to prey on unsuspecting homes, as they are much less likely to be concerned about being burgled. Burglary rates have also risen in the past few months, which should raise more concern for homeowners.  CCTV is a great tool to use as the presence of cameras is usually enough to deter would-be-criminals in their tracks. However, if they persist, you will have viable evidence to provide the authorities within the event of a crime report and possible prosecution of the offending party.

Considering CCTV:

CCTV is something that many don’t consider in their homes and business considering the need for it seems far from likely. But when something extreme happens, you will be surprised at how effective CCTV evidence is when it comes to providing visual evidence in whatever scenario you need it. Placing it in likely positions is always helpful considering a shop front is always going to attract certain attention, as well as the exterior of a home since any burglars are going to have to enter the premise somehow. Even mentioning CCTV brings up a huge amount of situations and scenarios that a camera system can be useful since video evidence is visual proof that something has happened.

CCTV is used all around the world as both a security and surveillance tool. With its many uses, it’s interesting to understand how CCTV can be used in so many different situations, which provide visual monitoring.

Key Uses For CCTV:

CCTV is used everywhere in the UK by the authorities for a variety of reasons since it’s ideal for monitoring public areas like busy cityscapes, train stations, roads, high streets and many more. Whilst the government has made obvious use of CCTV, civilians also make use of closed-circuit television to protect their property or at least act as a visual deterrent, which in many cases works wonders. With over10 million crimes in England and Wales, the public sector has adopted what was a business-orientated technology since the benefits that can be gained from such a system.

CCTV as a visual deterrent is one of the biggest uses for the system. It can be so effective against the less confident burglar who doesn’t want to take the chance. For anyone that does want to task themselves will have to face the multiple cameras installed in the system in a home that is utilising a CCTV system. If the presence of CCTV doesn’t deter the potential trespasser then at least you will be given enough visual evidence to provide police with valuable information

CCTV can be an invaluable tool to businesses as theft, vandalism and other criminal pursuits can be a huge damaging factor for small and large businesses alike. For both owners and managers, it can give you an informative insight in the productiveness of your employee’s, as well as protecting your staff from any claims that your customers have given you in a retail environment. Video evidence is often the strongest in any allegations that feature a customer accusing an employee of mis-selling etc.

CCTV In Your Home:

If not to protect your belongings, it should be to protect your family in the case of a break in. Measures like secure locks are always good, especially used in conjunction with CCTV. Security cameras in you’re home are another method of protection to further protect your property as well as your belongings. At the end of the day, you don’t know when something might happen, so it’s always good to have something watching over your property when you can’t.

Again, thinking that a friendly neighbourhood is enough of a reason to forgo a surveillance system. It is a well known fact however that burglars criminals will scout these areas specifically as they know what people tend to think. Whether they check the area first, or just pick your house at random, there really isn’t much stopping these criminals if you aren’t at home. This is why we see so much validity in using a CCTV system in a domestic environment, as it can provide you with not just peace of mind and a deterrent, but also a source of recording that you can use that is going to provide the police with much more evidence than footprints can ever do.

Many people think CCTV systems are made complicated, which is true to a degree but all for a good reason. If you could cut off a CCTV system with a single wire then it wouldn’t be very secure. Most CCTV systems are set up as a closed circuit system, meaning the signal is sent to a recording device or a computer/TV screen somewhere on the premise. Most domestic settings are going to have recording device like secure hard drives but some may opt for more advanced features like Wi-fi / remote access so that they can access their home system with a mobile device.  This again can give you peace of mind that your home is secure. This could also be used as a tool for pet minding for shorter durations that you are away from home.

Deterring Criminals:

Like we’ve mentioned before, even the presence of a CCTV camera is a strong visual deterrent for any criminal. Many don’t want to take the chance with such a well protected home. You would normally have at least one camera pointed to the outside of the home so there will always be a visual reminder to trespassers that this home is defended. You can also use warning signs in conjunction with the actual system, which is going to provide people with an even stronger message that the home is not to trespass.

CCTV is an important tool to protect your home from burglary, trespassing or even worse. If you are thinking of installing a surveillance system your property, DCUK can help.

Research shows that the majority of establishments that utilise CCTV cameras end up deterring anti-social behaviour which includes both theft and vandalism from their premise. If your business involves the dealing in goods and merchandise, then you are subject to this sort of behaviour so it is important you try and deter shoplifters and any other undesirables that would think about stealing from your property. It can also stop any un-aggravated attacks against your workforce from any rough behaviour from customers in which you can use it in your legal repercussion if you wish to do so.

Another motive towards installing CCTV in your business premise is the forever growing threat of violence at work, which can materialise in many forms such as, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, or general emotional harassment. It is sad that we need to take such precautions in order to prevent or catch these things happening but in most cases, things like this do go on in more populated work forces since contrasting personalities can meet. So it is important you are providing a tool for yourself and for your workforce to use to make sure you can catch disrespectful behavior as such as those listed above. You could also experience violence through something like an armed robbery which is forces the motive for a CCTV system even more since it is incredibly important you obtain video evidence of such procedures since video footage of of the perpetrator in action is one of the strongest pieces of evidence against them in court. It can also give the police the helping hand they might need in order to catch the offender.

Providing A Safer Working Environment – A camera system can help ensure the following of health & safety policies in the work day, as well as being used in the event of staff training which can become invaluable in certain trades.

CCTV Systems Explained – Wired CCTV

Before the advances in wireless CCTV, every system used wires to send and receive images from the CCTV system.

Wired CCTV, as the name suggests, uses high quality wires between the cameras and the monitor or recording equipment.

Benefits of wired CCTV include:

If the CCTV system is professionally installed the picture quality is usually exceptional. High quality cabling, such as Cat 5, allows the camera image to be seen or recorded without any interference.

The system is almost impossible to “jam” with frequency blockers.

Although, obviously, wired CCTV requires wiring to each camera, most camera systems have just one cable to each camera which carries the signal and power source. If you are utilising a power distribution box, up to 16 cameras can be connected to one power source. This also allows for cameras to be placed anywhere as they do not need to be near a power source.

Wired CCTV allows for a greater choice in cameras and functions such as pan, tilt and zoom cameras.

There are many different CCTV systems on the market for wired CCTV and so finding a suitable system for your needs is a simple exercise.

The ‘cons’ of wired CCTV are:

The system needs to be wired in – this may include long wire runs, overcoming obstacles in walls such as ‘stud timber’ or concrete blocks. Systems take a little longer to install.

CCTV Systems Explained – Wireless CCTV

Recent advancements in wireless CCTV means they are a real alternative, to wired CCTV, as a high quality CCTV system.

Wireless CCTV Installers KentWireless CCTV used to send images through analogue signals. These often produced low quality images and could fairly easily be blocked by ‘jamming’ equipment.

The latest technology, and the wireless CCTV systems DCUK Ltd install, use high-speed, highly-encrypted and secure data transfer to get images from the camera to the receiving unit.

Benefits of Wireless CCTV include:

Not having wires to or from the camera means that you can install your system virtually anywhere. Although some systems require the camera to be near a power source, DCUK Ltd, have cameras that operate from batteries meaning they are truly versatile in where they are placed.

The cameras send there images through wi-fi signal, but can also utilise 3G and 4G and even satellite signals to send data. This means they can be used anywhere and even the remotest site can be protected.

Being quick to install and versatile, wireless systems can be installed as a permanent CCTV solution or as a temporary, mobile or semi-permanent situations security measure.

The very latest technology utilising wireless IP camera CCTV systems ensure a high quality picture, with less chance of interference from microwave ovens, car alarms or baby monitors. IP camera systems also allow for a multitude of cameras on a single system without fear of interference.

Being cable free and transmitting over Wi-Fi means we can also set up the images to be shown ‘live’ on your TV, iPad or iPhone (or any other tablet or smart phone).

As they are easier to install, wireless CCTV systems are usually cheaper to supply and fit, making them an ideal choice for the home, small retail or office units.

The ‘cons’ of wireless CCTV systems include:

Although there have been great advancements in wireless CCTV systems in recent years and the picture quality is impressive, a wired system utilising Cat 5 wiring will have a better picture, but this is reflected in the cost of installing such wiring.

Installing a wireless camera may mean putting the camera near a power source, which may not be the best position for the angle or “shot” you wanted recorded. Battery powered wireless CCTV cameras overcome this issue.

Having a fast broadband that the system can connect to allows for greater quality of video or image capture.

CCTV Systems Explained – Summary

Regardless if it is a CCTV system for the home, shop or office, more and more people are choosing the convenience and affordability of wireless CCTV systems.

Easy to install and flexible in their use makes them a great choice for domestic and commercial premises. They are regularly used in office buildings, large industrial properties, shops, bars, hotels, restaurants and even domestic properties and homes. DCUL Ltd wireless CCTV systems offer reliable coverage for a very affordable price.
