Full security system integration

Integrating CCTV systems installed by The Local Electrician with the other components of your existing security system — such as your video intercom or alarm setup — is not as complicated as it seems. Doing this means that you will be able to manage your whole security system from a central location. Your new CCTV installation will be connected to an indoor station and a smartphone app, allowing you to monitor your property and ensure your loved ones are safe no matter where you are.

Initial Planning

It is important that our electricians discuss the wants and needs of the CCTV installation before we carry out the work. This includes discussing how many cameras will be installed, whether the system is analogue or IP based, the best locations of the cameras and more. We make sure to be clear about how we will perform the installation as well as provide professional advice on what should be installed and where. 

CCTV Installation

The CCTV installation includes using the plans to install the security cameras, cabling, storage devices and DVR/NVR. The cameras are installed in specific locations to best suit the security needs, the cabling is connected within the walls and then threaded back to the main monitoring point and connected to the monitoring source or device. Throughout the whole installation process, we are efficient with our skills and make certain that the security camera systems are installed properly and on time.

Final CCTV Inspections

Our electricians always carry out a free electrical safety inspection with all of our electrical services, including when we perform CCTV installations. We will look over each camera to see if it is mounted correctly, all the wiring is protected and connected and also that the cameras function correctly. Our team will also make sure to look over the cabling system and the NVR/DVR to make certain that it functions properly.

CCTV Installation Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Choose Analogue or IP Based Cameras?

Analogue cameras are cheaper however it is recommended that IP based cameras are chosen for the CCTV system. IP based cameras have a higher image quality, can store videos within an NVR, utilise ethernet cables, provide more site ranges, can zoom better and are overall greater at security needs. Analogue systems are an older technology compared to IP based cameras while having limited quality, thicker cabling, more limited site ranges and not as efficient as IP based cameras. Talk to a sydney electrician for their input on what the best camera type is and what best suits your needs.

What are the Differences Between NVR and DVR Recorders?

These are the systems that record what is being fed through the cameras and the main difference between the two is what type of camera system they work for. Network Video Recorder (NVR) are for IP cameras and encode and process videos at the camera to then stream at the NVR recorder. They can be either wireless or wired, have a more complex system and each camera only needs to be connected to the one network. Digital Video Recorders (DVR) are for analogue systems and process the video data at the recorder, are wired and less complex but the user needs to connect each camera to the recorder. 

What Factors Influence the Cost of the CCTV Installation?

The main factors that will influence the final cost of the CCTV installation service are:

  • What type of cameras are being installed, more expensive models will add to the final price
  • How many cameras will be installed as this means extra labour and more cabling needed
  • How large the home is where often double storey homes or overall larger houses will make the task more difficult or longer to carry out
  • The distance between the cameras and the NVR/DVR as more cabling and labour will be needed
  • Whether it will be an analogue or an IP based systems, IP bases systems are often more expensive but are greater in choice

Should I Choose Hardwired or Battery Cameras?

Hardwired systems are favoured over battery systems because they are generally more reliable and are easier to integrate within the electrical structure of the building. Battery CCTV cameras will need to be inspected more to ensure the battery does not run out while hardwired cameras work more efficiently. 

Where Should I Place the Cameras?

When placed outside, the cameras should be in a location where they cannot be damaged by vandalism or the weather, while providing good coverage of the area. The main locations for CCTV to be installed are the front door, back door or entry, any side passageways, the garage and in the corner areas to look over as much of the perimeter of the property as possible.
