A properly installed CCTV system can dramatically reduce crime levels
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. However, it’s not for everyone – only 5% of the 1,292 Which? members surveyed in 2013 have home CCTV.
CCTV is just one line of defence against crime. Working best when combined with other measures, such as a burglar alarm, door and window locks, gravel around your property and security lights.
CCTV camera resolution are measured in lines – the higher this is, the sharper the image will be.
The image quality of cameras depend on the type of chip used. Generally speaking, smaller CMOS chips are lower quality than larger CCD ones, such as 1/4″ and 1/3″.
The system delivers faster police or security response to an actual crime because the human operators filter out false alarms.
CCTV is the best deterrent for burglars
Cameras with tiny chips also tend to be able to pick up less light, and therefore produce lower quality images in low light conditions. The light sensitively measurement is in lux. This can range from 130,000 to 0.001 lux – the lower the lux the better the camera will record when there isn’t a lot of light.
High-quality images means sufficiently clarity for someone to be identified. This clarity is needed when CCTV footage is to be used as evidence. However, for the best detail a high resolution is required – this tends to make the camera more expensive and can take up a lot of storage space.
CCTV systems come in all shapes and sizes, from one CCTV camera connected to a monitor to a multiple camera system with active monitoring.
