Upgrade Your Security with CCTV Cameras!

Countries around the world now employ advanced surveillance technologies as their primary tool to monitor population movements and to prevent crime and terrorism. Here we’d look at the role of CCTV cameras and video surveillance systems in enhancing the safety and security of people and premises. Along with myriad other functions that are integrated, AI and analytics software is now affording operators.

Video surveillance is heavily used by councils, law enforcement, and security management professionals in the UK to combat crime and prevent terrorism. There are currently an estimated 5.2 million CCTV cameras in the UK, with one camera for every 13 people this figure includes everything from public surveillance to privately run cameras and even doorbell cameras.

Over the past decade, security systems have evolved including video surveillance. The fundamental shift has been the result of how digital data is gathered, analysed, shared, and stored.

Security cameras are already a big part of the smart city movement and the emerging industrial internet of things. As cameras become more capable of gathering data and making predictions based on integrated analytical software developed by manufacturers, deep learning and AI are becoming more common. Consumers now have easier access than ever to easy-to-install wireless devices and doorbell cameras, and the change to a “smart home” setting is also playing a role.

What is a CCTV Camera?

Closed-circuit television, or CCTV, is a security monitor system that allows you to keep a constant check on what’s going on around or in your organisation. Monitors and cameras that allow you to observe current events, as well as recorders that preserve the footage for later use, are all included in CCTV security systems. These security systems, which use CCTV cameras, are different from regular television sets in that they do not get public broadcast footage. They only get footage from security cameras that have been installed on or around the neighbourhood.

In recent years, there have been significant technological developments in CCTV security systems. Security systems have become more effective at catching offenders during a crime as a result of these improvements. Not to mention, they’re a cost-effective way to safeguard your company’s assets. CCTV security systems are becoming increasingly popular among business owners for these and other reasons. Continue reading to discover more about the many types of CCTV cameras, how they operate, their numerous parts, and why Mobile Video Guard is the best choice for all your CCTV installation and service needs.

Different CCTV Security Camera Options

The goal of all CCTV security systems is to record video. These cameras are especially crucial if your business is located in a high-crime area or if your building has any vulnerabilities that could be exploited. CCTV cameras are often employed in industrial settings to monitor conditions that are not suited for humans, maintaining smooth operations. With the ability to provide 24-hour coverage, Mobile Video Guard specialises in video surveillance for residential construction sites, scrap yards, and recycling yards, among many other industrial locations and applications. The following are the various types of security cameras that are regularly utilised:

Wired Security Cameras |

Wired security cameras use a series of a network of cables to conduct and transfer video to a display system. When the broadcast range exceeds 300 metres, the signal may become poor. The use of appropriate signal boosters, switches, and networking connections, on the other hand, helps to solve the long-range transmission problem. Multiple cameras are typically connected to a security room monitor system.

Analogue Security Cameras |

Analogue security cameras are one of the most prevalent and oldest types of CCTV security cameras. They offer basic security features and save video on-site. They can also show security video on a regular television without the use of a DVR. They do, however, work with DVRs if that is your option.

IP Analog Security Cameras |

IP (Internet Protocol) Analog security cameras provide the same capabilities as digital security cameras. IP cameras, on the other hand, have far greater capabilities. These security cameras, for example, provide greater and sharper image resolution as well as more versatile functions like repositioning and remote zoom. You may also see surveillance footage through a web browser. You may receive real-time notifications of anything unusual caught on site by connecting your security camera to a web browser. You can view your IP security camera live on your smartphone or computer device even if it records movement in your business at 2:00 am. However, one significant disadvantage of IP cameras is their high cost.

Video Recorders for Security Systems |

CCTV surveillance systems are incomplete without recorders. A recorder records the film captured by a CCTV security camera whenever something of interest is captured, allowing you to view it later. There are two main types of videos recording available. These are:

#DVRs | DVRs, also known as digital video recorders, are a modern recorder that replaces analogue recorders that rely on videotapes. DVRs transform analogue camera footage into a digital version at the frame rate and resolution desired. When the hard disk’s storage capacity is reached, fresh photos overwrite the old ones, making it critical to check your recorder as quickly as possible after an incident.

#NVRs | Network video recorders, or NVRs, are similar to digital video recorders. They are, however, compatible with IP cameras. A network router or switch connects your NVR and security cameras. Similarly, you may access your NVR footage via a mobile app or a web browser.

One more reminder on hard drives: for an NVR or DVR, you must use surveillance-grade hard discs. Surveillance-grade hard discs include more durable components than standard computer hard discs, allowing them to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week if necessary.

Display Unit

To see recorded or live footage from your security cameras, you’ll need a TV or monitor connected to your NVR or DVR. The display unit for your CCTV system might be anything from a simple monochrome screen to an HD colour monitor. Not to add, if your company has IP cameras, you can view footage remotely from a computer or smartphone.

CCTV Security Footage Storage Options

CCTV security cameras can record everything they capture. However, you will find that archiving everything fills up internal storage space rather quickly. Storage space can become rather costly. For this reason, you could consider programming your security camera to only record footage during a particular time of day, or when movement is detected. Doing so will save you the hassle of constantly buying more storage space to archive the constant stream of footage.
