Burglars and vandals most commonly select their targets based on the chances of being able to commit a crime undetected. Buildings that present themselves as unoccupied or insecure are far more likely to be seen as an easier option, and thus targeted. A professionally installed and regularly maintained CCTV system can dramatically reduce these offences occurring.
The latest generation of CCTV means that cameras can be installed almost anywhere and are small enough to be less obvious to the eye, thus taking nothing away from the beauty of your home, but without compromising on image quality. Infrared lighting technology also allows our camera systems to be able to work in pitch blackness, bringing the quality of the images up to near daylight level. Additional lighting in these situations however would always be advised and recommended at the time of our site survey. Cameras can also be set to record what is happening around the perimeter of your property whilst you are in or out, keep eye on your driveway and your car, or even view rooms or entrances from inside of your home.
CCTV has been a common fixture in shops, pubs, car parks and other public places for years. Now, thanks to easier installation and falling prices, it’s becoming an increasingly popular choice for security-conscious homeowners.
If you’re thinking of getting a home CCTV system for the outside of your property, you must comply with privacy laws. This means making sure that your cameras aren’t pointed at public spaces, or other people’s houses or gardens.
CCTV is just one line of defence against crime, and works best when combined with other measures, such as a burglar alarm, door and window locks, and security lighting.
Business crime costs the retail industry in-excess of £12 billion per year.
