The provision of supplementary lighting is essential to ensure that a CCTV system can capture high quality images day or night, and yet it is major component of a security solution which is quite often overlooked.   Specifying the correct lighting at an early stage of a project’s lifecycle will ensure that time consuming return to site visits can be avoided at a later stage. Equally important, with so many types of lighting solutions available, the total cost of ownership of a CCTV system, as well as day-to-day running costs, can be minimised by the correct selection of the most suitable lighting to match the environment in which it will be working.   Well designed, properly installed and fully maintained security lighting is also important to illuminate the outside of domestic and commercial building in order to deter intruders, whilst good illumination at outdoor spaces such as railway stations and car parks can assist in the capture of CCTV images for evidential purposes. It also makes the general public feel safer.
