The Use Of CCTV In Crime Prevention

  • Deterrence – The potential offender becomes aware of the presence of CCTV, assesses the risks of offending in this location to outweigh the benefits and chooses either not to offend or to offend elsewhere.
  • Self discipline by potential victims. They are reminded of the ‘risk’ of crime, therefore altering their behaviour accordingly by potential offenders. The threat of potential surveillance (whether the cameras are actually being monitored may be irrelevant) acts to produce a self discipline through fear of surveillance, whether real or imagined.
  • Efficient deployment CCTV cameras allow those monitoring the scene to determine whether police assistance is required. This ensures that police resources are called upon only when necessary.
  • Presence of a capable guardian – The ‘Routine Activity Theory’ suggests that for a crime, there must be a motivated offender, a suitable target and the absense of a capable guardian. Any act that prevents the convergence of these elements will reduce the likelihood of a crime taking place. CCTV, as a capable guardian, may help to reduce crime.

FAQs

What Are The Benefits Of CCTV?

SV Security Systems staff have been installing CCTV for a combined time of 54 years! So what are the benefits…

Increased Deterrent – CCTV systems are a great deterrent to potential intruders/thieves. Once they realise that your home or business is protected by a CCTV system they invariably choose to go elsewhere.

Safer Working Environment – CCTV helps to ensure health and safety policies are being followed for staff and visitor safety.

Reduced Retail Theft – Thieves deliberately target businesses with old or no CCTV and will think twice if there is an increased risk they may be caught on camera.

Increased Detection – The prosecution rates for businesses/home owners using CCTV is many times higher than that for those without it. If you are a victim of crime there will be a strong chance of detection and conviction.

Eliminate False Insurance Claims – In an increasingly litigious society it has never been more important to protect your business against claims that are not legitimate. CCTV can eliminate this and reduce you premiums.

Remote Monitoring – Keep an eye on your home or business when you aren’t there. All our CCTV systems can be viewed and controlled remotely over the internet (via iPhone, laptop etc).

Reduced Fear Of Crime – Knowing you are well protected gives a feeling of security.

Staff Protection – CCTV is a great tool for preventing assaults and false crimes of misconduct.

What Types Of CCTV Systems Are There?

We don’t believe in putting our name to ‘cheap and cheerful’ systems because it simply makes us look bad. The range of equipment we install can be found a www.geniecctv.co.uk.

How Long Will My CCTV Record For And Then What Happens

Our CCTV systems record for between 21-30 days, depending on the customer requirements (quality of recorded images and size of hard drive). After that time the system will then start recording over the earliest recordings so you will always have between 21-30 days worth of video footage stored, which is ideal for those who travel frequently.

Can I View My CCTV Away From Home

Yes, this is discussed at the site survey phase. We connect 99% of our systems to our online app so that customers can view their CCTV live footage whilst away from home. The apps are password protected to ensure no one is monitoring you system without you knowing about it. You will of course need a broadband connection at home for us to connect into. If the router is in a different room to the DVR then we can fit a UTP link (ethernet over mains).

Are My External Cameras Weatherproof?

Yes, all the cameras we install externally are IP66 rated.

What Is Infrared Night Vision?

Infrared (IR) Night Vision allows your CCTV camera to see in the dark. This is achieved by using the camera’s built-in IR LED’s. The Infrared light provides to illumination required to capture the images in total darkness or low-light conditions.

Do I Need To Back-Up My Footage?

No. The only time you need to create a back-up is if an incident occurs. This is very straight forward to do via USB. A full demonstration will be provided and technical assistance is available free of charge 24-hours a day.

Do I Need CCTV Warning Signs?

No signs need to be displayed for domestic customers, however if a system is installed on a commercial property then adequate warning signs stating who the installer and operator is must be displayed for data protection purposes.
