If you’re looking to protect your home, property or business, installing a security solution, such as CCTV, could be the ideal way of protecting it. As one of the most popular forms of security in the UK, CCTV offers a flexible, effective and efficient method, whilst also providing a deterrent to help prevent crimes being committed.

Can I fit CCTV myself?
Installing a CCTV system can be done without the help of professionals and there are many DIY set ups you can use at home.
If you do decide to attempt to install CCTV yourself, ensure that you fit it securely where it will capture the area you need to have surveillance on.
As you’re likely to be installing a CCTV system on the outside of your home, the equipment you’ll need will include a ladder, drill and a mount to mount the camera on.
What do I need if the professionals are installing my CCTV?
If you’re calling in the professionals you obviously don’t need quite as much equipment. However there are some key considerations you need to think about. These include:
- Where on the property do you want to install the CCTV? It’s important that it is positioned in an area which will provide you with good visibility
- Ensure the CCTV is set up in an area which doesn’t overlook any neighbouring properties
- Think about whether you want to be able to access the footage 24/7. These days there are a range of CCTV systems which can be accessed via a smart phone or tablet.
