Wireless CCTV Security
Being able to monitor and record your home with wireless CCTV is something that most homeowners will need to consider for security in a big city, as well as home owners hoping to add a little extra security to their properties. With thefts and burglaries on the increase, statistics suggest that criminals are simply becoming wiser to the angles and capabilities of cameras and surveillance systems.
CCTV installation can be a fairly straight forward task, with experts and security teams always on hand to take care of the hard work on behalf of their clients; but how possible is it to ensure that the right system has been put into place, as opposed to one that might not be as beneficial? Choosing to have a CCTV camera system installed can certainly add an extra layer of security – and here’s a look at the different types available to property owners.

Regardless of whether the cameras operate via Wi-Fi, or if they are connected by cable – all of them will need to be set up to feed data back to a network or circuit. This process can be very involved as it will require a server to be established, as well as a host of security protocols to be put into place. Furthermore, to ensure that the system is almost entirely fool-proof, further security measures will need to be applied to ensure that only those with approval are able to access the cameras and recorded data.
The clue is in the abbreviation CCTV, which stands for closed-circuit television. As the circuit will need to be closed it will be all but impossible for external parties to tap in to the network, so the property can relax in the knowledge that its surveillance is under lock and key. But what about those instances where a home or property owner would like the security cameras in and around their premises to be directly connected to a third party, such as a security firm, or an authority?
By opting for wireless CCTV installation around the external regions of a home, it will suddenly become an option to monitor all occurrences within any given area. Placing cameras in a position to watch car parks and to monitor windows, access points and other areas of interest can be beneficial; especially if crimes happen to take place.
It’s not just the protection from criminals to be considered however, it’s also the ability for a functional system to record all events; including accidents and mishaps. Hundreds of businesses face claims every year, many of which are fraudulent in nature. Without the proper evidence, a court can soon find favour with the apparent victim.
This leads on to the next benefit – this time relating to internal security and surveillance.
