The issue I have is the cameras are mounted on the wall. I see a lot of cameras are for facia fitting etc but then they’d be far too high to pick any detail up. Spider webs are a bit of an issue, mother some spider x & rag doesn’t clear usually.

Hik vision do a wall mount for the domes and turrets and looks smart, but not cheap. On the front of my house I have one in the eaves and one three quarters(wall mounted) up the wall

get some big lights and an alarm - thats what the cons dont like.

they dont fear cctv, no face - no case so they cover up.

and what use is cctv, they cant find that poor girl in my home city and they place is crawling with cctv.

Cctv is for more peace of mind, as above to deter people you need light and a means of making it more difficult to rob something

Hi Andy, the Swann kit my friend bought was the same as one of my Hik cams. A 2032 with a Swann interface.

Cheers.

I have a QVIS wholesale account, if you are needing cameras or DVR's.

I have HIK around the house, we live in a cul de sac in a very quiet area but I've worked in security for 25 years so fitted them sort of 'just because'.

I've had these a while and they are 5mp domes mounted under the soffits low level @ the front of the house. The picture quality is excellent and the HIK kit does take some beating vfm wise.

I have mine set up with trigger points set to a schedule so I get notifications when we are out (alarm set) or late evening and providing they are set up right we have very few false alarms.

As with most nowadays I can view from anywhere which is just a little piece of mind whilst we are away.

As above CCTV offers little if any deterrent but I like the early warning it provides if someone crosses the line so to speak.

I agree about CCTV being primarily a deterrent. I have a fairly robust security system, and, to be honest like being a tart & having CCTV, even if it’s just anoth tech gimmick.!

time to upgrade my CCTV cameras

We recently attracted the wrong attention for our Golf R, and despite having CCTV (Hikvision) it didn’t deter them at all

After 40 minutes of attacking locks etc (ours are all upgraded) they eventually fished the house keys through the letterbox, got in (house alarm went off) grabbed my wife’s bag and ran, but not before they re-locked the front door snapping the barrel and stopping us from getting out

You live and learn for sure, and we’ve made changes as you can imagine - the point being that cctv shouldn’t be your only form of deterrent, but a part of it

They didn’t get the car keys as we never keep all the keys together
