Local CCTV Installation in Bedford
Why install CCTV in Bedford? Well, the local crime states provide plenty of reasons. Despite the lockdown – or perhaps because of it – crime in the town and immediate surrounds is higher in 2020 than it was this time last year. The greatest problem appears to be Anti-Social Behaviour. Typical to this category of crime is trespass, graffiti, property damage, drug dealing and littering.
Anti-Social Behaviour can easily escalate into opportunist crime such as burglaries and vandalism. It’s also exactly the kind of crime that local CCTV installations in Bedford successfully target. Over the last 4 months many of Bedford’s commercial properties have been closed to business. Those with CCTV cameras are far more likely to be ignored by opportunist criminals. Why? Because the risk of being caught and convicted is significantly higher where there are cameras.
Types of Local CCTV Installation
There’s now a range of CCTV cameras available to suit every business, and every budget. At Impact Electrical & Security Installation we always carry out a security audit of our customers’ premises before recommending a specific type of camera. We take into account the quality of light, vibratory interference, and range of vision required before offering guidance to business owners.
Here are 5 of the most popular CCTV cameras we install:
- Bullet CCTV Camera. This is the traditional cylindrical camera with a water resistant casing. They tend to be used as an outdoor camera because they’re highly visible to criminals and good for long distance surveillance. The casing is resistant to rain, snow, heat and ice, and it protects the lens from rain and glare.
- Dome CCTV Camera. The dome-shaped casing is now a familiar sight in shops, restaurants and hotels. The dome camera is popular because it’s discreet, but it also creates uncertainty for would-be criminals. Why? Because they’re never sure where the ‘eye’ of the camera is pointed.
- Pan, Tilt & Zoom CCTV Camera. If you have slightly larger premises to monitor, such as a school, retail park or housing estate, this camera gives you full oversight. It provides 3600 visuals, and a high resolution image, so facial features can be picked out easily. There is also a zoom feature which means that you can home in on any suspicious activity.
- Day or Night CCTV Camera. Where you require round-the-clock surveillance, but you don’t have a consistent quality of light, this camera offers a perfect solution. Its extra sensitive imaging chip guarantees excellent images even if the light quality is poor. The bullet casing protects the camera from glare and rain, ensuring perfect vision at all times.
- Wireless CCTV Cameras. These have been terrifically popular whilst businesses have been closed. Wireless CCTV allows you to keep an eye on your premises wherever you are. The small, discreet cameras are quick to install, and the visuals can be played in real time on your phone or laptop.
