1st Choice Installs CCTV for Homes Across Bedfordshire

Think that CCTV is just for big houses? Think again. CCTV systems are now far more affordable than they were, even a few years ago, and the technology is less intrusive. 1st Choice Security Systems is now installing more CCTV for homes across Bedfordshire than ever before. Our customers give a number of reasons why they’ve opted for the system, including:

  • Insurance – Your domestic insurance premium is likely to be lower if you have professionally installed security systems such as intruder alarms, or CCTV.
  • Compatible With Phone – Many CCTV systems now allow you to keep an eye on your property via your phone. Handy if you’re away a lot.
  • Useful for Older Relatives – A number of our customers in Bedfordshire are having CCTV installed in their parents’ homes, so they’re able to keep an eye on their property remotely.
  • Prevents Crime – Burglars are far less likely to target properties with CCTV, because their actions will be caught on camera and could be used as evidence in court.

1st Choice Recommends Professionally Installed CCTV for Bedfordshire Homes

Well, of course, we would say that wouldn’t we? The point is, though, that we want our customers across Bedfordshire not just to feel safe; we want them to be safe. Working with 1st Choice isn’t just about the installation. We take time with our customers to consider the positioning of the cameras for maximum deterrence; we offer guidance on the best systems for their budget, and we know the laws governing signage and what can and can’t be filmed.

One of the most persuasive arguments for installing domestic CCTV is the capturing of potential evidence. This is more complicated than it sounds. The image has to be clear, which requires high definition infra-red night vision cameras. It is also a requirement the images used in evidence should show the person’s head and face close up, not just their body. 1st Choice engineers will ensure that your CCTV is positioned in such a way to produce the best images.

Wired, or Not Wired?

You have the option of a wireless CCTV system, or one that is wired. A wired system takes longer to install, but it’s not susceptible to interference due to wireless signals. If you need multiple CCTV cameras in your home a wired system would be best. Wireless CCTV connects to your wi-fi; it’s easy to install and you can take it with you if you move. If you live in an apartment building, though, you may find that you experience interference from other residents’ wi-fi signals.

Whichever system you choose, you can specify that you want to be able to view the footage on your phone.
