CCTV Installation

In Melbourne, the CCTV security system is a widely used and highly effective means of enhancing security. Originally designed for video recording, the evolution of CCTV technology has led to advanced features, making it indispensable for businesses and residences alike. Understanding these features is crucial for making the right choice:

1. Motion Detection: Recording on demand is a standout feature in CCTV systems. It conserves storage space by only recording relevant footage, triggered by detected motion, making it ideal for areas with minimal human activity.

2. IR Lighting: Infrared LEDs integrated into IR CCTV systems enable efficient nighttime surveillance. These day/night camera systems detect ambient light levels, activating infrared LEDs as needed.

3. Two-Way Audio: Often overlooked but highly useful, two-way audio allows real-time communication with individuals in front of the CCTV camera, serving as a verification tool for restricted areas.

4. Number Plate Recognition (ANPR): Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems automatically read vehicle number plates within the camera’s field of view, simplifying parking access control.

5. Facial Recognition: Employed in high-security environments, this feature identifies registered individuals passing by the camera, though it comes at a premium cost with moderate accuracy.

6. Wireless Connectivity: Wireless CCTV systems, now faster and more reliable, simplify installation by eliminating the need for data cables. Many reputable security camera brands offer wireless options, enhancing convenience.

How to Install a CCTV Camera:

Installing a CCTV system can seem daunting, but with the right steps, you can ensure a successful setup. Note: In Victoria, you must engage a Licensed Security Equipment Installer and Registered ACMA Cabler for this purpose.

Here are the basics of what you’ll need:

  • HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
  • CCTV Camera (Dome or Bullet)
  • Power Supply for Cameras
  • Coaxial Cables (4+1 or 3+1)
  • BNC Connectors and DC Connectors
  • Power Drill with Bits
  • Tape
  • Display Screen or Monitor

The Installation Process:

NVR Connection: The NVR system comes with cameras and stores recorded footage. Connect all cameras directly to the NVR using CCTV wires. Use BNC connectors for video and DC connectors for power.

Camera Placement: Decide where you want to install your cameras, ensuring they have an unobstructed view. Plan the cable routing to minimize extra wiring and enhance camera coverage.

Drilling Holes: Mark locations for cable passage and camera mounting. Drill the holes and secure the cameras using the mounting screws.

Cable Routing: Connect BNC connectors at both cable ends and DC connectors at the camera end. For each camera, you’ll need three connectors (2 BNC + 1 DC). Connect the power cable at the NVR end for camera power.

Connecting to NVR: Route cables through your location to the NVR, connecting each cable to the appropriate port. Connect an external monitor, and a mouse, and consider adding a USB drive for exporting footage.

User Interface Setup: Turn on the CCTV system’s power supply and NVR. Configure the NVR by following the manual, and consult available online resources for further guidance.

Camera Adjustment: Ensure that your installed cameras are properly positioned and make necessary adjustments using the small screws on the camera housing.

With these steps, you can install your CCTV system effectively, enhancing the security of your property.”
