The Home Office has produced a brief but useful on-line guide to help small businesses select a CCTV system. Unfortunately many CCTV images supplied to police do not prove to be useful for a number of reasons. Often it’s because the recorded image is either of poor quality or too small to identify the suspect or it’s because the cameras were put in the wrong locations to be of any real use.
Developing a well thought out operational requirement for the cameras and recording capability is essential if you want your system to give you a return on your investment and a few minutes spent reading this guide will be time well spent.
