What Is CCTV?
Close circuit television or CCTV is a video system which consists of several cameras that are connected to a digital video recorder which in turn is connected to a TV or monitor. The cameras will pick up anything untoward happening and the digital video recorder can either record the footage or it can be viewed in real time but it is not publically distributed. This system can be installed by yourself or by a reputable CCTV installation team. The system can be either indoor or outdoor or both. Outdoor cameras can be weatherproof to cope with low and high temperatures and most have anti fogging systems build in so you can enjoy clear pictures all year round. These systems are used by numerous different organisations, businesses and the general public. Most local councils and police have large systems that watch town and city centres to control areas that have alcohol restrictions or to catch criminals in the act and possibly enable the police to identify and catch offenders. Indoor shopping centres, public and private car parks, schools and colleges all use CCTV systems for crime prevention and to help with locating criminals. Many businesses large and small use CCTV inside and out to monitor employees as well as to prevent crime. The general public can protect their property with a smaller CCTV system fitted in and around their home.
How Can I Get CCTV Fitted In My Home?
There are many places that provide CCTV system services and it is worth contacting a selection of companies including local electrical retailers, surfing the internet or through a private investigator, such as Private Investigators London who can all give you help and information on what systems are available. It is also a good idea to look at a CCTV system review online to see what is available to you and for how much. Once you have made your decision a professional will visit your home to discuss your needs and to offer you a host of different packages that are available to you. You will be shown a selection of different cameras and video recorders that will be appropriate for your home and you will be given a brief instruction on each one to see which is the most suitable for you. An installation date will be given to you when you have decided what system you would like. On installation day the engineer will fit the system and give you full instructions on how to operate the system and the different settings and modes available to you. Having an indoor and outdoor CCTV system will give you the peace of mind that your home is secure and that the people who are working for you in your home when you are not there are doing what they are supposed to be doing. These people could include your child carer, domestic cleaner, window cleaner, and gardener to name but a few. It can also keep an eye on your pets which can be quite an eye opener!
