Home CCTV installation – what is involved?

Choosing home CCTV installation is a smart way to boost the security of your home as it will serve as a strong deterrent to any potential criminals.

CCTV cameras are an excellent way to gain peace of mind about your safety and that of your home through the ability to monitor areas of your home no matter where you are.


When deciding to add home CCTV installation the first step is decide what you want to achieve.

  • Do you want to focus on one area, such as the driveway?
  • Are you more concerned about the inside of the house?
  • Do you want a complete package to cover inside and outside of the house?

The extent of the coverage you want will affect your home CCTV installation as it will dictate the number of cameras that are installed.

Many people, for example, focus on the immediate exterior of their home adding CCTV cameras that focus on the garden and driveway.

Choose the right home CCTV installation for your family

This helps to protect against unwanted intruders in the back garden and gives cars parked in the driveway extra protection.

However, there are many reasons why home CCTV installation is extended inside the house. These include adding pet cams to keep an eye on furry friends, or nanny cams that let you keep an eye on your children’s carer.

A professional home CCTV installation firm will talk you through the best options to fulfil your security requirements, including the definition and quality of the images provided.

Once the number of cameras and locations have been agreed on, these will be secured in place on exterior or interior walls and connected to either a wired or wireless system. You can choose from a Pan, Tilt and Zoom CCTV camera system, which is ideal to cover back yards and gardens because they will allow you to sweep over the area, while a fixed position Bullet camera could focus on the front door, back door or garage door.

Although a wireless system provides for a neat and uncluttered finish the greater reliability of wired systems still make this a popular choice.

When the home CCTV installation is complete you will be then be able to view live images of the covered areas of your home via your chosen device.
