With the rise of easy to buy CCTV equipment we ask is it easy to install CCTV at home?
The simple answer is that while yes, of course, it is possible to set up a CCTV or security camera system by yourself it will be very time consuming and you need to make sure you get it right.
The dangers of not getting your set up correct are:
Your cameras aren’t located in the right positions to cover all the easy access points and intruder would look to take advantage of. This is especially a problem if you do have a break-in and your CCTV doesn’t capture the intruder.
Your cameras aren’t connected properly or configured properly to a recording system to save your video files resulting in a loss of footage when you need it.
Are your cameras configured correctly in order to be triggered or record at the right times?
One of the main reasons for having a professional install your CCTV system is complying with building regulations. Using a registered electrician to install your CCTV system will give you peace of mind that it will be reliable and meets Part P building regulations.
Your camera system will also need to adhere to specific data protection laws for your area should they be capturing images or footage that is outside the boundary of your private property. This includes footpaths, streets and neighbouring properties. Another good reason to have an expert install your CCTV system.
