What type of job is it?

CCTV installation specialists - what you need to know

What does CCTV installation involve?

Security specialists will safely install (wired or wireless) CCTV cameras in or around your home, which can record suspicious activity, as well as act as a deterrent to burglars. As well as installation, security specialists will be able to advise on the best positioning of cameras, proper maintenance, and the various ways to record the footage.

Cost of CCTV installation work

Installation can cost anything from £150 (for a basic domestic set up) to thousands of pounds for a more sophisticated / multi-camera arrangement

The qualifications your tradesperson needs

Some CCTV engineers will have a Certificate (or Diploma) in ‘Knowledge of Electronic Security and Emergency Systems’ but this isn’t a legal requirement, and many will practical on-the-job apprenticeships. Always ask for references and / or testimonials if in doubt. Reputable tradespeople should be more than happy to provide them.

What is the Certificate in Knowledge of Electronic Security and Emergency Systems?

This is a nationally recognised vocational qualification that provides the fundamental technical knowledge to install alarms – more information can be found here.

Planning permission for CCTV installation jobs

If you go for a CCTV system for the exterior of your property, you’ll need to comply with basic privacy laws. This means ensuring no cameras point towards public spaces or neighbouring properties, including gardens. It’s common courtesy to inform your neighbours of your CCTV plans, before any cameras are installed.

Insurance for CCTV installation work

A reputable tradesperson will have public liability insurance as standard. This protects against any accidental damage to your home. Feel free to ask for proof of insurance.

Questions you should ask your tradesperson

  • How much experience do they have with this specific type of installation? Can they provide references for previous work?
  • Do they have a separate servicing team to deal with any problems that may arise after installation?
  • Do they offer a 24-hour customer helpline?

See our Security Systems main page for even more info about your options.
