1st Choice Security Systems Provides CCTV Installation for Bedford Clients

UK Crime Statistics provides a monthly snapshot of the crime activity in your local town or city. It’s one of the ways in which we’re able to work with our clients in Bedford to develop comprehensive security systems for their business premises.

The available data shows that Bedford crime incidents tend to occur in pockets around the bus station, the train station, the shopping centre and Adelaide Square between Tavistock Street and Dame Alice Street. The most prevalent crimes range from anti-social behaviour to theft and violent crime.

1st Choice is Bedford’s Local Security System Installers

Of course, it’s one thing knowing where crime is likely to take place, it’s quite another knowing how to deal with it. Our security engineers always advise clients that there’s no ‘silver bullet’ when it comes to crime prevention. It’s all about putting in place a range of security installations that protect your premises, and employees, and let criminals know that you’re serious about security.

CCTV is a Preventative Measure That Aids Criminal Convictions

A recent survey carried out by a leading UK insurer asked criminals what was most likely to deter them from committing a crime. Half of the respondents said that most thieves were opportunists. Seeing a CCTV camera, or hearing a dog barking were guaranteed to put them off. The police also recommend CCTV, especially where there’s a high level of anti-social behaviour. Getting evidence captured on CCTV helps to convict criminals and take them off the streets.

CCTV Installers Help With Choice and Positioning

1st Choice Security Systems will always carry out a security diagnostic on your property, before offering advice on your CCTV installation. Once we’ve identified the key vulnerabilities on your premises, we’ll advise on the number of CCTV cameras required. This includes the range of angles they need to cover, and the quality of the data feed for optimum effectiveness.

Wired or Wireless Bedford CCTV?

There are now a range of options for businesses, dependent on the size of your premises and the ways in which you want to use your CCTV installation.

It’s useful to know the differences between wired, and wireless CCTV.

  • Wired CCTV. This is the most reliable CCTV installation. Cables connect the camera to a digital playback facility. The collected data is automatically stored on the hard drive. Deletion can be automated, or set to occur when the storage is full.
  • Wireless CCTV. This is becoming a popular way to use CCTV, allowing for images to be linked to mobile phones. The problem we’ve encountered with this system is interference, or failure of the wireless signal. We would always recommend a wired back up.
