Having a CCTV surveillance camera that is easily visible to the public may help to deter potential burglars and thieves. The risk of these thieves being caught on camera will not only keep most of them away, but it will also help to capture important footage if they decide to strike. This CCTV footage can be used to catch and prosecute thieves. What better feeling than knowing justice has been served?
Another great advantage of CCTV camera surveillance is the feeling of safety and security in your own home. Keeping your family safe is a top priority and with a home CCTV security system, your family’s safety is ensured. CCTV systems can be set to sound an alarm when motion is detected, giving you the opportunity to take action and call for help before the intruders can get in. They can also be set to send you an email immediately when motion is detected which will help you keep an eye on your home or business while you are away. CCTV systems can also be connected to the Internet for remote online access which means you can be anywhere in the world and you will still be able to watch CCTV footage back at home or work. How convenient is that?
If you are interested in purchasing your own CCTV system for your home or business, you may feel bombarded with technical jargon and information you cannot understand? It all sounds very complicated but all you need is to understand the basics. By knowing the basics, you can make informed decisions about which CCTV system is right for you.
A CCTV System is a DVR that connects to a specifically designed CCTV Camera which records all the time; on a scheduled basis or only when motion is detected (this setting is optional). A DVR accepts video and audio recordings from the connected CCTV Cameras and saves this data onto a hard drive that is built into the DVR.
DVR’s usually range between 4, 8, 16 and 32 channels. A DVR with 4 channels can take up to 4 cameras and so on. The best type of DVR to use for your home or business system would be a Full D1 DVR which records at the highest quality available and at 25 frames per second on all cameras. This will increase detail, resolution and sharpness. Recording at 25 frames per second is referred to as Full D1 Realtime Recording as it records just the way we see on TV or in real-life, there is no skipping between frames.
Deciding which camera is best for you depends on a number of things. If you want the cameras to be more discreet, a dome-shaped CCTV Camera would be ideal. This is suitable for restaurants, lounges, bars etc. as customers would not get the feeling that they are being watched. A bullet-shaped camera is much more obvious and stands out. These types of cameras are best for letting the public know that they are being watched, especially potential criminals. These types of cameras are known to deter burglars from breaking in.
There are so many options to choose from, but for every situation, there is a perfect solution. It’s always best to visit or call a CCTV company and discuss your needs and determine the best CCTV system for you.
Make your world a safer place. Get protected.
