Current cams film in utra HD or HD and the software that comes with them (e.g. synology surveillance station) allows some very sophisticated options (for example alerting you only when movement is detected in a certain part of the camera's view). Power over ethernet (e.g. hikvision £100-145 each), connected to a home NAS, synchronising to a secondary encrypted cloud drive. change from £800 including the server (which is around £400), which you can use for many other things (streaming music, movies, backing up photos). If you are going to have them recording to a DVR then I agree its pointless. You can actually get cheaper options which use wifi and stream to your phone. I installed mine for £300 - two cameras, some cat-6 and an 8 port PoE switch. I already had the servers.

Scumbags can spot a dummy cam easily. For a start they tend not to have an IR glow at night. Advice is have them installed about 7-10 feet up. You should never look at home security with the view that one thing will work over another. Its very much about a combination of deterrents, some visible, some hidden.


Superb, knowledgeable advice. Thanks.

Friends of ours recently got a surveillance camera system. It sends reports to a mobile phone whenever movement is detected. They have lots of pictures of cats. And a massive broadband bill.

Often; not always.

Some companies' terms include a right to charge more if usage goes above what they deem to be 'fair use', even with 'unlimited' use broadband.

even the cheap cams from lidl at £40 can be customised.
My suggestions are not legal advice

In case you are not aware ,if planning permission or an LDC has not previously been granted for the parts that are currently taller than 1 meter you would require planning permission if you wanted to totally renew them in the future. Also If you place a new higher fence behind the existing one the council can still deemed the new one as being a boundary fence adjacent to the highway which required a planning application.

I would try to get planning permission if the new fence doesn't compromise highway safety which it may not do if the fence is not on a bend or corner and your not driving in and out adjacent to the parts you wish to raise. You could do as many do and take a chance and raise it without PP and then hope no one complains but that's a risky approach if they take enforcement action against you and you need to prove what sections you didn't raise and had gained immunity .
