CCTV Installation Done The Right Way

CCTV installation done by professionals will save you time, money, and stress overall. If you are looking to add more security to your property, personal or commercial, it’s important to choose a professional installer.

TP Electrical Contractors can offer comprehensive CCTV installation. We can provide you with the right advice and equipment, tailored to suit your security needs.

Reasons To Avoid DIY CCTV Installation

Many property owners choose DIY CCTV installation, but this is against professional advice. Self-installed CCTV if not properly set up can become more of a security risk.

Criminals

Criminals are aware of what to look for when it comes to poorly installed security cameras, which are less likely to work.

So, they target buildings with these self-installed systems because the chances of getting caught are lower, for instance, due to poor footage or camera placement.

GDPR & The Data Protection Act

Those same DIY Security Cameras could also be illegal, as there are strict rules about what footage you can record. Under GDPR and the Data Protection Act, you could very well risk breaching these rules with DIY cameras and security.

Cyber Attacks

A benefit of modern CCTV systems is being able to watch footage on the move, using a personal portable device. However, DIY systems are often improperly set up and as a result are more vulnerable to attack by hackers than professionally installed security systems.

Equipment & Settings

Individuals configuring DIY systems don’t set them up in the same way as professionals install CCTV. They are often plagued by poor quality footage, incorrect camera placement or simply the wrong camera system for the job. Failing to capture crucial footage that could have led to the return of stolen property or assist in prosecution defeats the object of installing CCTV.

Reasons To Hire A Professional For Your CCTV Installation

Installed CCTV Camera

When a professional oversees CCTV installation, such as TP Electrical Contractors, they will provide you with a package tailored to your security needs.

Tailored System

Individuals configuring DIY systems don’t set them up in the same way as professionals install CCTV. They are often plagued by poor quality footage, incorrect camera placement or simply the wrong camera system for the job. Failing to capture crucial footage that could have led to the return of stolen property or assist in prosecution defeats the object of installing CCTV.

Installation

On the day, an expert will install the cameras in accordance with both your security needs and in line with GDPR and the Data Protection Act. We will install these systems correctly and securely, and upon request, discreetly. There are models available for both indoor and outdoor use. Running adequate cables, testing camera feeds, voltage and currents are other services professional installers can offer.

Settings & Maintenance

Rather than leave you to figure out your settings, a professional installer will adjust them accordingly. This ensures your equipment best suits your needs. Consider that you might need night vision, ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) and sufficient digital footage storage.

Regular maintenance is necessary to ensure that you optimise your system. A professional CCTV installation will mean that you shouldn’t need to have your system checked for a least a year after you get it.
