How much does it cost to install CCTV?

The cost of installing a CCTV system is influenced by various factors, including the number of cameras, the type of cameras, and the complexity of the installation. Here’s a more detailed look at what you can expect to pay:

  • Basic System Costs: Entry-level systems with minimal coverage typically range from £340 to £600. These systems are suitable for small properties or those requiring basic surveillance.
  • Mid-Range Systems: For medium-sized properties or for those requiring higher quality footage, systems can cost between £600 and £1,350. These setups may include additional cameras with better resolution, increased storage capacity, more sophisticated monitoring features and even an alarm system.
  • High-End Systems: For extensive coverage or advanced security needs, such as facial recognition capabilities or integration with other security systems, costs can exceed £1,350 and can go up to £1,900 or more. These systems are often IP-based, allowing for remote monitoring and management.

Installation Fees

  • Professional Installation: The cost of professional installation can vary significantly based on the complexity of the setup and the layout of the property. On average, installation fees range from £75 to £200 per camera, which includes mounting the cameras, setting up the recording equipment, and configuring the system for remote access. This may also include things like security fences, bollards and door systems as additional security.
  • Self-Installation: Some CCTV systems are designed for DIY installation, which can save on installation fees. However, it’s important to be comfortable with basic technical setups to ensure proper coverage and functionality.

What are the different types of CCTV cameras?

CCTV technology has evolved, offering various types of cameras to suit different surveillance needs:

  • Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) Cameras: Allow for remote control of the camera’s direction and zoom, offering flexibility in monitored areas.
  • Infrared Night Vision Cameras: Provide clear video footage even in low light conditions.
  • Dome CCTV Cameras: Offer a discreet option for public spaces, with a dome-shaped cover that makes it difficult to see the camera’s angle.
  • Bullet CCTV Cameras: Known for their long, cylindrical shape ideal for outdoor use.
  • C-Mount Surveillance Cameras: Come with detachable lenses that can be changed to fit different distances.
  • IP CCTV Systems: Transmit footage over a network, allowing for remote monitoring from any location.
  • Wireless CCTV Cameras: Reduce the need for extensive wiring and offer more flexible installation options.
  • Day and Night CCTV Cameras: Capable of operating under varying light conditions without infrared.
  • HD Surveillance Cameras: Provide high-definition video footage that ensures finer details are captured.

How do I know the job has been done well?

To ensure the CCTV installation is effective:

  • Check Camera Angles: All cameras should be strategically placed to cover the intended areas without any obstructions.
  • Test Functionality: Verify that all cameras and related equipment function correctly, including recording and playback.
  • Review Footage Quality: Ensure the footage quality meets your expectations, particularly in different lighting conditions.
  • Post-Installation Support: Good installers will offer aftercare, demonstrating how to use the system and offering to troubleshoot any initial issues.

The best way to ensure a job gets finished properly is to take a look through previous reviews, as well as ask to have a look at old work. At Rated People, you can make the right choice based on a tradesperson’s past reviews, and read through our electricians page to find out the types of questions you should be asking beforehand.

Other CCTV installation FAQs

Do I need permission to put up CCTV?

In many cases, CCTV can be installed without specific permissions, but it’s important to respect privacy laws and avoid pointing cameras at public spaces or other private properties.

Does CCTV cost a lot in electricity?

CCTV systems typically use a modest amount of electricity, but this can vary based on the system’s size and specifications.

Do electricians install CCTV?

Some electricians are qualified to install CCTV systems, especially those who specialise in security systems, though it’s often best to use a dedicated CCTV installation expert.
