How much does it cost to install CCTV?

By Jonathan Ratcliffe

Installing a CCTV system outside your home or business is a fantastic way of making sure that you can keep track of everyone entering and leaving your premises while acting as a deterrent for criminals and an additional layer of security. Installing CCTV is a worthy investment to protect your personal assets and prices can vary widely between providers.

The cost of installing CCTV cameras will depend on a number of factors, including:

How many cameras you want to install

Obviously, the more cameras you choose to install on your premises, the more it will cost, but more cameras can make it less likely that an intruder will attempt to break into your property.

The quality of the cameras

You can either choose between internet protocol cameras or high definition cameras depending on your budget and personal requirements. Simple home cameras usually come at a low cost, while pan tilt zoom cameras can cost significantly more.

Where you want to install your cameras

Installing CCTV cameras below 2 stories on your premises is relatively cheap, but installing them any higher will incur additional charges.

How much footage you require

Standard CCTV footage packages last for a few weeks, but it can cost more to record footage for a long period of time.
