Some people do not realise that in order to install CCTV a licensed business and installer must complete the installation. Electricians must be qualified to do all electrical work. However they are not qualified to install cameras just by being an electrician. Installers must be a registered business and a licensed individual to install CCTV Cameras. If an installer is not qualified, the work will not be covered by insurance if anything does occur and was caused by the CCTV Cameras. Therefore, You may be denied an insurance claim if you use an un-licensed CCTV Installer so do your research!
