FM Radio Switch Over By 2015

FM radio to be switched off by 2015 - digital DAB radio is on its way!

It has been reported that come 2015 people in the UK will no longer be able to access FM radio stations because the government aims for all radio to be broadcasted digitally.

By the end of 2015 local and national radio stations will no longer broadcast via an analogue system and will move to digital, also known as DAB.

This radio switchover is concerning many motorists due to the incompatibility of DAB in cars, in response the government recommends that new cars are built with DAB technology.

In recent years the volume of people listening to radio via a digital channel has increased. It is thought that the government will ensure that before the switchover takes place, 90 percent of the population will have the ability to access DAB. This digital radio switchover is likely to be funded by the leftover funds from the digital television switchover in 2012. For more info about digital radio click here!

There are a number of reasons why people require a CCTV installation at their home, this can be for overall peace of mind, to prevent/ after a robbery or to record criminal behaviour such as problematic neighbours or persistent vandalism. 

CCTV For Your Home With Doddington Aerials and Satellites
 You might even notice more and more properties around Sussex boasting CCTV cameras. It’s no longer for homes located near less desirable areas - CCTV is being installed in many homes across the county.

CCTV is an abbreviation for ‘Close Circuit Television’ and can be described as a collection of small cameras which have the ability to move up to 360 degrees recording behaviour.
Many choose CCTV systems that have sensors to detect movement and therefore can start recording when motion is detected.

Other people opt for a system that has the ability to record at night time so that their property is protected during the evenings and darker times. CCTV is often used an effective deterrent and offers many people peace of mind. We often have enquires from people who have recently suffered robberies as they find it gives them a security that little else could offer.

As technology has progressed CCTV has become more affordable so is a cost effective way to protect your property.

One of the big attractions of using home CCTV is  that the cameras can be discreetly installed and therefore are no longer an eyesore on the property exterior. This size of the cameras have also decreased this means that they are small enough to fit in almost any desired location- therefore no matter where you need to install the cameras they are likely to fit!

The video footage captured on CCTV cameras can provide evidence and can be captured direct to a video recorder or straight to a home computer, so you can monitor your home and garden 24hours a day.

It is important that you choose a good quality CCTV systems that is robust and weather proof, this will also help ensure it records to a desirable standard. There are a few key features to think about when researching CCTV systems for your home these include:
