Introduction to CCTV

21/5/2020

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is an expected requirement in today’s security system requirements. They are perfect for abnormality detection, including intrusions.

 

Whether it’s for your home or workplace, the CCTV has become increasingly important in today’s modern times. We are in an era where we give out so much personal information – when we sign up for a membership, make an online purchase or even grocery shop. This information exposes our location and allows threats to reach us easily, making us vulnerable. We might even have provided a visual map of our home on social media when we post pictures of our interior. While technology has made us vulnerable, it can keep us safe too.

Legal Concerns

Have you ever wondered whether CCTV cameras are allowed to be installed outside your HDB home? You don’t need to ponder anymore because as incidence of theft and burglary has increased drastically over the years the government has become liberal about the installation of CCTV Cameras outside your corridor. After all, these devices have become important tools to protect and prevent anyone from harm. There have been cases of molestation and thefts that the CCTV Security Camera has become a necessity. Of course,  authorities understand the privacy issues therefore limiting the number of cameras. However, please take note before going ahead and installing a CCTV Camera you should write in to HDB to request for permission just in case, as laws about CCTV Camera are still ambiguous.

 

Pick the right CCTV Camera

Once your request has been approved by HDB you can start to source out for CCTV Cameras, there are many companies that provide them. You just have to Google “CCTV cameras in Singapore” and there will be a whole lot of companies you would be able to select from. There are two types of CCTV Cameras, one is referred to as analogue, the other is called the IP Camera.

IP cameras are increasingly being used in surveillance circuit electronics, where they are replacing traditional CCTV cameras. They can be either wired or wireless, cutting the cost and maintenance required for regular cameras used in a CCTV surveillance circuit. IP cameras tend to capture better quality images, which is especially helpful in the case of moving targets, as frame rates can be adjusted according to the bandwidth provided. They support two-way communication and hence can send customized alert signals in case of suspicious activity or other predefined occurrences. Hundreds of gigabytes of video and image data can be stored in video servers, which can be retrieved at any time.

The best analogue surveillance camera still can’t hold a candle to the worst IP camera when it comes to the resolution of the image it captures. At best, an analogue camera can manage the equivalent of less than half a megapixel, whereas a Megapixel camera wouldn’t be much good if it didn’t produce an image of at least ONE of the things it’s named after. It depends on what you need, if it is for your house then an analogue will suffice as a HDB corridor is average in size.
