CCTV benefits: CCTV is one of the most useful tools for reducing crimes like theft and vandalism. CCTV systems are a deterrent to thieves. When they realise that your home or business is protected by a closed circuit television system thieves will normally choose to go another property. Even if the thieves are foolish enough to steal from your CCTV protected property. There's a very a good chance the thieves can be identified by police with the help from the CCTV. The effects of CCTV are clear in London for instance. Crime statistics have shown where there is newly installed CCTV coverage there is also the corresponding drop in the crime rate shortly after. With this success of CCTV in London, the case for installing CCTV cameras is now unmistakably clear. CCTV recordings can prove invaluable as evidence for a conviction and assisting with recovery of stolen possessions.

CCTV picture quality: A picture is made of verticle and horizontal lines of pixels and is used to measure the quality of the picture. For instance, a picture made from horizontal 704 pixels x verticle 480 pixels = total 337,920 pixels or roughly 0.3 megapixels. The quality of the picture improves as the number of pixels increases, but better quality CCTV cameras generally cost more than lower quality cameras.
CCTV DVR: The unit connected to your cameras has a hard drive which stores the video footage. The video footage from all the installed cameras is stored and can be viewed on a split screen monitor. The larger the capacity of the hard drive the more video it can store. A larger hard drive is more expensive than smaller hard drives however once the hard drive is full, the oldest footage will be recorded over. Therefore the bigger your hard drive, the longer the timeline of any footage received from the cameras.
Infrared night vision: This allows recordings that are made in low light conditions. Systems with a good Infrared night vision have good visibility in the dark. Yet again, a system with this feature will cost slightly more.
Mobile connectivity: It’s also worth taking a look at the connectivity of your camera to your WiFi network if you are wanting to monitor your property using an internet connected device. It is worth checking to see if mobile connectivity is not available. However in my opinion this feature is essential if you want to keep an eye on your property when you’re not there.Get in touch about your CCTV needs
