CCTV Camera Installations for Bedford
1st Choice Security Systems has been working with Bedford businesses for over a decade now. We’re privileged to be considered a trusted installer by local traders, and we’re generally called in when a Bedford company has security concerns.
One question we get asked quite often is: Do I need to get my CCTV professionally installed? With so many DIY CCTV kits available now, and budgets being squeezed in all directions, it’s a reasonable enquiry. We have a clear view on this – as you would expect – based on 10 years experience of installing security systems in a range of commercial environments.
Here are 5 reasons why professional CCTV installation will save you money in the long run:
1. Positioning Your CCTV Camera Installation
Before installing your CCTV cameras, 1st Choice Security Systems professionals will carry out a detailed security diagnostic on your premises. We understand how burglars operate, and will be able to spot the vulnerabilities that business owners might miss. Then we’ll create a design that will be sure to capture criminal activity effectively, and prove an efficient deterrent.
2. Ensuring Ideal Environmental Factors
Even the most carefully positioned CCTV cameras can deliver unusable, or undecipherable images if the environmental conditions are poor. 1st Choice engineers will test your CCTV installation in situ, in order to be sure that the lighting is sufficient, at all times of the day and night, to provide clear imagery. We also take into account environmental factors such as humidity, dust and vibrations that can impact on the performance of your CCTV installation.
3. 1st Choice Offer Smart Network Design
Creating a separate network for your CCTV installation is both costly and wasteful of resources. 1st Choice seek to create holistic security systems which feature integrated cabling and network design. This reduces the potential for network infiltration, and enhances the potential for your security systems to communicate across all the different components.
4. We Keep it Legal
A CCTV installation is now subject to strict legislation in the form of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Using CCTV cameras in a work environment is likely to involve capturing images of employees. If this is the case there are a number of privacy rights your employees have with regard how data is stored, where it is stored and for how long. 1st Choice will explain the GDPR responsibilities, and put safeguards in place to protect business owners.
5. Archiving and Indexing Footage
In the majority of cases, CCTV installation footage is normally required some time after an event, rather than during it. This makes the process of storage, and clear indexing important. Being able to prove exactly when an image was captured is absolutely key to using it in court. 1st Choice will work with business owners to determine the length of time footage is stored, and the access measures employed to determine its security.
