Are Hidden Or Visible CCTV Cameras Best?

PTZ CameraOnce you have made the wise decision to invest in a CCTV system, one of the biggest decisions you will have to make is whether to install hidden CCTV cameras or visible CCTV cameras?


Hidden CCTV cameras are, as you would expect, hidden from view as much as possible. Often, they are placed within another object to conceal their whereabouts. Visible CCTV cameras are just that, visible to the naked eye and obvious as to what they are and what they are doing.


To decide whether hidden or visible CCTV cameras are best all depends upon your needs and requirements. For most homeowners, externally, visible CCTV cameras are best. This is because as well as recording CCTV footage, their very presence is a big deterrent to criminals. However those people who want CCTV in their house often choose to go for hidden CCTV cameras because large visible cameras can be intrusive and visually unattractive.
There’s no right or wrong answer as to whether hidden or visible CCTV cameras are best, it all comes down to what best suit your requirements. If in doubt, always consult an experienced CCTV engineer.
