Indoor & Outdoor CCTV Systems
When it comes to CCTV, one of the biggest decisions you need to make is whether to opt for indoor or outdoor CCTV. Both have their advantages in keeping your property safe and secure and at ProtectMyProperty we will only ever point you in the direction of products we think are best suited to your needs and this could be a combination of both internal and external.
There is a lot that needs to be taken into account when determining whether you need outdoor CCTV cameras, CCTV in your home, or a mixture of the both. But, don’t let this overwhelm you, as we are here to make the process much easier. We will carry out a free home security survey to determine the best CCTV solution for your home. But, what things should be considered?
The main difference between our indoor and outdoor cameras is that the latter is made to withstand various light conditions and weather conditions. Erratic weather throughout the year can affect the clarity of your footage but with our outdoor CCTV cameras, you don’t need to worry about humidity, frost, moisture, snow or rain. These cameras can also deal with low light conditions.
One thing you do need to keep in mind, however, is that outdoor CCTV cameras are going to be more susceptible to tampering. This is why all of our outdoor equipment is made from durable materials, so they are not easily removed or damaged.
You can also combine outdoor CCTV with a number of other security measures such as video intercom systems and access tokens so that you can be sure that only the right people are entering your property at all times.
Indoor cameras tend to be a lot lighter and smaller, with numerous styles to select from. There’s also the opportunity to hook up your indoor CCTV camera to a SMART CCTV system which allows you to see what’s going on inside your home at all times, even if you’re at work or on holiday.
Different factors that need to be discussed include how many hours of footage need to be recorded, the quality of the footage, and the energy efficiency of the system. We will advise you on the different options we have, and the pros and cons of each.
