What is CCTV?

CCTV stands for “Closed Circuit Television”, which is a form of video-based surveillance. It can be a singular camera, or a network of cameras. The CCTV camera works by monitoring, recording video images into a DVR, NVR or cloud based storage and transmitting them to a monitor.

A CCTV is therefore used primarily for security purposes.

CCTV - what does it consist of?

CCTV camera comprises at least one camera transmitting data to a monitor or video recorder. The data transmitted can either be video and audio, or video only. A CCTV camera must never be mistaken for an ordinary TV. An ordinary television receives publicly broadcasted contents while a CCTV doesn’t.

CCTV allows the visualization of transmitted images after their recording and, in the detection of any event, know their causes, which helps to improve security with a preventive character.

In addition, the placement of visible cameras at strategic points deters any intentions of crime and provides visitors with a sense of security.

How many CCTV cameras do I need?

There is no right answer to this question. To answer this one, you need to consider what you want to achieve from your CCTV camera system.

In order to provide a sensible coverage of your property, it is likely you will need a minimum of 4 cameras. It is possible to fit less cameras, however some angles will be left uncovered.

If you still are not sure, get in touch with Utility Deals Security experts , who will do a quick assessment of your premises, customize a solution based on your requirements and budget!

Can I hide my CCTV cameras in plain sight?

Yes! There are 2 ways to do this:
1. Positioning of a camera
2. Using a camera with a long range

Is Night Vision an option?

In low light conditions at night, CCTV security cameras use infra-red (IR) illumination as a substitute for normal light.

When the camera uses the IR, it will see black and white, not color images. This is due to how the camera processes the infra-red light it senses.

What about CCTV Remote Viewing?

One of the most commonly requested features is the ability to access a CCTV camera system remotely over the internet when away from home. This is functionality built into all our CCTV camera recorders.

Why should I even consider upgrading my CCTV camera system?

Most of the times, upgrading a CCTV security camera system is ruled out due to having to rewire and the cost.

The good news is that the CCTV cameras available at Utility Deals are fully compatible with industry standard wiring and standard definition resolutions.

This means you can continue using the existing cabling and can just swap out the elements of the system that you can afford. This is subject to minimum requirements.

By just upgrading your recorder and possibly one or two CCTV cameras you will be able to take advantage of the benefits of HD security whilst not breaking your bank account. As your old CCTV cameras will work with your new recorder, you can still monitor areas that you consider to be of lesser importance.
