Types of CCTV installation

There are two main types of home security systems: Wired and Wireless.

Wired CCTV systems refer to closed-circuit television systems that are connected to a recording device and monitor through a physical cable. The cameras used in wired systems are connected to a central control panel or recording device through a hard-wired connection, providing a stable and reliable transmission of video and audio data.

Wired CCTV systems are ideal for larger properties or businesses where a wired connection is already in place, as they require a physical cable to transmit data from the cameras to the recording device. They also offer higher-quality video transmission compared to wireless systems, making them a great option for high-definition recording.

However, wired systems are more difficult to install, as the cables need to be run from the cameras to the recording device, and the installation process usually requires professional assistance.

Wireless CCTV systems refer to closed-circuit television systems that transmit video and audio data wirelessly from the cameras to the recording device or monitor. Unlike wired systems, they do not require a physical cable to transmit data, making them a more flexible and convenient option for those who want to avoid the hassle of running cables.

Wireless systems typically use Wi-Fi or cellular networks to transmit data, making them ideal for remote locations or for properties that lack a wired connection. They are also easier to install, as the cameras can be placed anywhere within the wireless network’s range.

However, wireless systems can be susceptible to interference from other wireless devices and may experience a degradation in video quality if the wireless signal is weak. Despite this, wireless CCTV systems are a popular choice for many people due to their ease of installation and flexibility.

 

What is 4K and 8K CCTV?

4K and 8K CCTV systems refer to closed-circuit television systems that capture and display video footage in ultra-high definition. The number in the name refers to the resolution of the footage, with 4K meaning a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and 8K meaning a resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels.

4K CCTV systems offer four times the resolution of traditional 1080p systems, providing stunning clarity and detail in recorded footage. This increased resolution makes it easier to identify faces, license plates, and other important details, which can be crucial in security situations. 4K CCTV systems are becoming increasingly popular for both residential and commercial properties, as the technology becomes more affordable and widely available.

8K CCTV systems take the technology a step further, offering an even higher level of detail and clarity in recorded footage. With a resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels, 8K systems provide 16 times the resolution of traditional 1080p systems, making it easier to identify details that may have been missed with lower-resolution systems.

 

8K CCTV systems are still relatively new to the market and are mainly used in high-end commercial and industrial applications where the increased detail is required for advanced security and surveillance purposes.

Both 4K and 8K CCTV systems provide a significant upgrade in video quality compared to traditional CCTV systems, offering improved clarity and detail in recorded footage. However, due to their higher resolution, they may require more powerful recording and storage systems, as well as larger displays, to fully take advantage of their capabilities. Additionally, the cost of 4K and 8K systems is generally higher than that of traditional systems, but the investment may be worth it for those who require the highest level of detail and clarity in their recorded footage.

While 4K and 8K systems can be more expensive than traditional CCTV systems, they offer a significant upgrade in video quality and provide many benefits to those who require the highest level of detail and clarity in their recorded footage.

What Our Customers Are Saying

★★★★★

" We recently had an extension built and wanted a TV and sound bar in that new room.

I contacted Paul at Andrews Smart Homes who came highly recommended by a friend at the beginning of the build to discuss our options, best place for wires and which equipment would suit our needs.

Paul arrived when he said he would, came up with a plan and a cost for the works including supplying a new Samsung 65 inch TV and a Sonos system to accompany it.

Paul came to our property a number of times (at little notice on one of them) and nothing was too much to ask for and I have to say the attention to detail and quality of his work was outstanding. Who knew the level of skill involved in hiding wires in the walls there was!!

I would not hesitate to use Paul at Andrews Smart Homes again and of course, recommend him to anyone for their projects."
