There are many reasons for a business to be equipped with a video surveillance system and security cameras. Some of the most important reasons for having security cameras installed include:
These are just a few of the many reasons your business needs security cameras. The most important one is your PEACE OF MIND!
Video surveillance systems and security cameras come in a wide variety of capacities and functions. You know best what your business needs, based on specific requirements. Here are some questions you might want to answer before choosing a system for your business.
If you have areas in and around your facility that are not brightly lit, you may need night vision security cameras that include built-in infrared LEDs. These will capture clearer images of perpetrators.
Hard-wired security systems require cable that connects the camera to the DVR. If they are too far apart from each other, the video quality and clarity is decreased. IP cameras can be used to solve this issue with a wireless digital signal. They can be connected to a local hardwire switch with Ethernet cable or a wireless router, achieving higher quality digital video.
Indoor cameras will need to be capable of surveying the entire range of the warehouse, factory or office. If you require outdoor surveillance, it’s always wise to get weatherproof cameras. Even if the cameras are placed under an awning or other protective overhang, extreme weather could affect the quality of the images.
This is calculated using a variety of factors, like the amount of hours recorded, number of days needed to store, type of video encoding, etc. Your professional security system installer can help you determine this requirement.
This is probably the most critical question to select the right system for your business. There are many online and big-box retailers selling video surveillance systems. You will surely find some that you think are a good deal, but you need to consider other factors.
You may be tempted to go the less expensive route of the big-box retailer, but did you know that those stores don’t even use the camera systems they sell to protect their own store? Almost 100% of the time, stores like Best Buy, Costco and other retailers actually use commercial grade systems from professionals like Gateway Lock & Security to protect their properties.
