Hooking your home up with CCTV (Part One)
The issue of home break-ins is unfortunately just as pertinent as ever when it comes to your property so it is necessary to make sure you are as prepared as possible. Having a basic lock on your doors and windows and leaving the light on when you go out may not quite be enough if a burglar targets where you live. CCTV (closed-circuit television) is a feature that has been around for some time now and although they were once more closely associated with businesses and high-profile buildings you can find them in numerous homes.
Most homeowners' intentions when they set about finding a CCTV system surround warding off the very unwanted attention of thieves. It is also possible that you want to keep an eye on the activity that takes place in the immediate surroundings of your property when you are not around.
Once you are clear on why you want your CCTV you should be able to make a decision on which specifications your system will have. IP cameras use audio, images and a network connection and they are seen by many as the significantly advanced version of analogue cameras.
