Why evidence collection is so important?
CCTV kits and security lights fitted with cameras are great for home security. Not only do they act as a deterrent, they catch on film anyone who may try to burgle or vandalise your property. Having CCTV footage of someone breaking into your house can be a great aid for the police and could even help to bring the burglar to justice. There are a number of different factors that you must think about when buying a CCTV kit.
Which Digital CCTV kit is right for you and your property and what makes up a kit?
Which DVR you need
An NVR, or Network Video Recorder, is an electronic device that records the CCTV footage captured by your camera. DVRs can differ in terms of;
- Hard drive size – how much recorded video it can store
- Number of channels – how many cameras can be connected to it
Putting things very simply:
- More cameras and high resolution require an 8 channel, 2TB DVR
- Fewer cameras and higher resolution require a 4 channel, 2TB DVR
- More cameras and lower resolution require an 8 channel, 2 TB DVR
- Fewer cameras and lower resolution require a 4 channel, 1TB DVR
Remember, buying a kit with a 4 channel DVR limits you to four cameras. What some people like to do is buy an 8 channel DVR with 2-4 cameras, then add more cameras at a later date.
