Which Home CCTV System is ideal for you?
You have lots of choice when it comes to what type of system is ideal for you! It only varies with what is your budget. Sierra CCTV have different packages and promotional offers that will suits your pocket. We may also advise you to start with basic and later you may upgrade to a better high resolution CCTV system. A basic “no frills” home CCTV system is great for general monitoring of your home, however if you need to provide evidence in court (not everyone wishes for this) then you will need a more specific set-up – and for this we recommend a high-end system installation.
If you need to identify someone from your CCTV footage, and need to present this as evidence in court – then the subject should be no less than 120% of the screen. Often this is hard to achieve with a cheaper CCTV System, so we recommend a high-end system installation. If you don’t need such evidence, you can get away with a cheaper system.

How does home CCTV work?
Quite simply a CCTV system for your home will generally comprise the CCTV camera, a digital video recorder, monitor and wiring.
The camera is a specialist camera with features such as infra red night vision and usually comes with a monitor so that it can operate on its own – however many CCTV systems allow you to view on your home TV.
Once the camera has received the images it sends them to the DVR which records all footage continuously. There may also be a motor which provides the facility to be able to zoom in and out depending on the type of lens that is fitted.
As an added bonus such a system will enable you to install more than one camera if you wish to cover a greater area, or individual rooms.
