CCTV is very useful, but has issues at night, when usually we get very grainy pale grey footage.  It is very difficult to identify offenders from this and if the offenders see cameras, they use their hoodys to cover their faces.  The answer is – if you have security lights, swap one over with a Guard Cam.  These contain a hidden CCTV camera.  The advantage is – when the PIR heat and movement sensor is broken at night, the camera starts recording and the floodlight comes on.  Thieves often look directly at the light – which they don’t do with CCTV.  The images are saved to a SD RAM card – the same as in digital cameras – in full HDD full colour.  The more expensive versions send the images directly to your mobile phone – wherever you are in the world !!!
