Domestic CCTV Systems Bedford

CCTV? In your home? Isn’t that a bit over the top? Not at all! In fact Impact is installing more domestic CCTV systems in Bedford this year than ever before. Why the sudden growth in demand? Well three things spring to mind:
  1. Affordability. CCTV cameras are now competitively priced and there’s a huge range of options. So you’ll be able to find cameras that are ideal for protecting your home.
  2. High Tech. CCTV cameras are not just affordable, their also far more efficient that ever before. ColourVu CCTV, for example, provides excellent HD imagery, in full colour, even at night.
  3. Burglaries Happen When You’re Out At Work. Burglaries went down in Bedford during the lockdown, but as people go back to work they’re rising again. Burglars are less likely to target a houses with CCTV.

Commercial CCTV Installation in Bedford

Commercial CCTV installation is an invaluable deterrent against opportunistic crime on business premises. Should criminal activity occur, CCTV will capture the evidence which can then be used to identify the perpetrators and pursue a successful conviction. If you're looking for a way to defend your property, workforce and data, Impact’s CCTV installation service in Bedford gives you 24/7 security. As a local installer of CCTV cameras for businesses in Bedford, there are a number of questions Impact engineers get asked regularly. In this blog, we answer your most pressing queries.

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.

CCTV in Bedfordshire Drives Down Burglaries

The Impact team are always delighted to get some good news when it comes to the crime stats in Bedfordshire. The local police have just announced that burglary offences in the county are down by 35% on the figures from a year ago. Detective Inspector Janine Graham said:
“So far this year, we have jailed one offender for five years after being caught on CCTV eating ice cream before breaking into a property. Another was sent to prison for more than three years after his forensics were found at the scene. A man was handed a 15-year sentence for his part in a burglary which left two men with life threatening injuries, and one burglar was sentenced to almost three years after being caught on a doorbell video.”

She goes on to acknowledge the contribution the public make to the Bedfordshire Police success rate. Taking a responsible attitude towards crime, and installing alarms, CCTV and security lighting makes an impact – as we’re seeing from current figures.
