Installing CCTV Camera For Security

What are CCTV Systems?

CCTV Systems are critical for people to install to maximise installation. CCTV stands for Close-Circuit Television, in other words ‘video surveillance’. This security system sends real time footage to a storage unit which is connected to the security cameras and records the footage for later use. Which would be inspecting recordings in case an unsafe situation occurred within the range of the camera angles. Ranging from an extensive and intricate system to extremely basic, there is a security system for everyone. Such as wireless systems like the ring doorbell camera, that simply connects to an application on smart devices, or fully wired 4k CCTV surveillance systems that need to be installed by professional electricians.

Initially being developed and manufactured in German in 1942 to monitor the launch of V2 rockets, the CCTV has become a staple for home and commercial security.

With the implementation of security cameras it is proven that with visible cameras criminals are deterred from properties with the technology installed.

The video playback recorded form CCTV surveillance cameras is not only utilised to the property owner/ tenant, but can be used to assist law enforcement identify, and/ or understand situations that could potentially involve illicit actions, and act as evidence in a law case.

Another benefit and crime management technique that CCTV security systems allow is the monitoring of areas and places that are not easily accessible or utilised. e.g. a rooftop. Making your property completely secure from unwarranted events occurring


Commercial Management from CCTV Security Systems

CCTV security systems are a great implementation for commercial properties. Having video surveillance of business operations is essential for efficiency, safety and monitoring situations. The benefits of having CCTV cameras installed throughout a commercial area is that management is able to monitor situations and operations and provide feedback to the employees and other staff to improve technique, operations and reduce conflict or dangerous situations within the monitored areas.

Another way that security systems can help businesses is with ‘retail intelligence’. This phrase refers a strategy used my retail experts, where the movements of customers are monitored to track shopping patterns, on where foot traffic is the highest, or what section customers spend most time at. The businesses then can scientifically figure out the most effective and efficient placement of their products throughout their stores.

How do CCTV surveillance systems work?

  1. A camera records images through the lens using image sensors.
  2. These images are transmitted to the recorder or tape, either wirelessly or by cable. Recorders may use analytical software and other smart technologies to scan the data and send automated alerts to either humans, or other systems and devices. This Video Management Software (VMS) records, stores and analyses video feeds. The software is often self-learning, using machine learning (ML) algorithms that utilize functionality like motion detection, face recognition, people counting, etc.
  3. The footage saved on the recorder can be replayed, or distributed if necessary to revise previous images if a dangerous or unwarranted event occurs within the range of the surveillance cameras.
  4. Monitoring can be passively or actively monitored. CCTV networks can, and should, themselves be monitored.Sourced.

Can CCTV systems be used outside?

CCTV is able to be used outside of your property, although if filming another persons property or a public area, there is a limit on how the footage can be used and distributed and if these rules are breached legal obligations can take place.
