The hi-tech range of CCTV and security cameras now available is just one line of defence against crime but they work best when combined with other measures, including burglar alarms. CCTV relies on discreet and strategic placement of cameras along with regular private monitoring of what the cameras are picking up.
Wired Home CCTV Systems
These are the most common and cheapest type of camera, where a wire connects directly from the camera to the monitor. The downside is that the wires, including extension cables and connectors, can be difficult to install by yourself which is where IO Power can assist you.
Wireless Home CCTV Systems
With this type of system, cameras transmit images to your computer, tablet or mobile phone, using analogue or digital technology. Many smart security cameras link to an app that you can use to monitor your home while you’re out and about. Digital cameras are generally higher quality, but more expensive.
Wireless systems can suffer interference from devices such as routers, cordless phones and microwaves, and can be blocked by heavy masonry or metal objects. Your filming may also be interrupted if your internet connection is lost.
