The benefits and responsibilities of having a CCTV System
CCTV can provide many benefits for organisations but there are rules if you have one. These videos provide an overview if you are considering installing a CCTV system.
CCTV is a great way of providing part of your safeguarding portfolio at any site. We regularly install CCTV due to Health & Safety requirements as often as to solve security issues which is the usual use for CCTV.
A CCTV System runs over standard computer networks as modern phones systems also do. The system consists of Cameras a storage device , network cabling, Power over Ethernet switch and a viewing workstation or mobile device.
If your organisation has a commercial CCTV system, or you are about to have a system installed, you need to be aware of data protection laws. In the UK this means complying with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), which incorporated the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Your CCTV System is as secure as you make it, one of the securest ways of running a CCTV system would be to only allow known secure traffic to it, maybe by using a VPN.
You can now view footage remotely on most systems. but be aware that as soon as you open up your cameras to the internet there is a security risk.
The best method for keeping track of visitors and staff in a building is via an swipe in / swipe out Access Control system in conjunction with an integrated CCTV system.
Modern CCTV system analytics can now identify people, cars or lorries as categories. Even more sophisticated systems can identify car numberplates or colours as well as faces.
You should retain footage for as long as the designated use of the system requires. Once you have carried out Camera Risk Assessments and defined the purpose of your CCTV System the retention period should be fit for purpose.

Benefits of a UPS and how to operate
These videos explain why a UPS important and how to use UPS software.
We would always recommend that a CCTV System has a back up power supply, more often now as CCTV Systems are IP Based this is easy to achieve with a UPS – Don’t forget that UPS devices also require monitoring and batteries generally tend to last for 5 years or so.
A UPS is a device that can provide back up power in the event of a power cut, it sits inline between the incoming power and protected device. Generally the UPS also provides power filtering to iron out any power peaks and troughs.
Most UPS devices have the capability to house network cards that can report on information that is relevant to the integrity of the system, such as battery condition, run-time remaining, load levels, input voltage etc.
