Having home security is essential for lots of families and so the sales of security systems has increased tremendously. Many people are addressing these concerns by installing CCTV at their property but how easy is it to install it as a DIY project or is it better to pay a specialist security company to install the system?
The two main types of CCTV systems that are available are wired and wireless systems. A wireless system is much simpler to install than a wired system as there is no need for cables to be routed through the property and so if you are fitting it yourself a wireless system would probably be a better option.
The majority of wireless systems have an app that can be installed on your mobile device so that you can view footage from the cameras from wherever you are. A recording box is usually included in the system so that footage can be viewed if necessary. It is important to have this box hidden from view so that should you have a burglary at your property the video evidence is protected.
Exterior cameras can be installed so that footage can be viewed of people visiting the property or walking round outside. The location of interior cameras will need to be carefully thought through to provide security but also to respect the privacy of visitors.
