Essential Questions to Ask When Considering Video Surveillance Systems
How and where are you most vulnerable? Do you store expensive materials and products? Are you a potential target for vandalism? Examining your risks will help you determine your needs.
How many cameras do you need? How many rooms does your business need to monitor? Are you monitoring a campus where all but private spaces must be monitored at all times?
Indoor or outdoor? Where do you need cameras? In most cases, it’s ideal to have cameras inside and out, but sometimes you may need more in one area than another depending upon the nature of your business, your location, foot traffic and other considerations.
Fixed or remote? Is it enough to have a security system that records without much monitoring, or do you require remote access over the internet in order to keep an eye on your business 24/7?
How much technology do you need? The best cameras? The best recorders? What is necessary and what’s excessive? At 21st Century Cabling, we customize solutions to give you no less and no more than your business requires.
Choosing the Right Video Surveillance System
Technology companies have come up with a solution for almost every potential situation. This has resulted in the sale of countless, highly specialized types of cameras and recording devices. Sounds daunting? It can be. But, 21st Century Network Cabling technical experts makes it simple.
These are the typical pieces of equipment you’ll be considering:
- Wired cameras – the most typical cameras are still hardwired to a recording device and power source.
- IP Cameras – among the most sought after are networked cameras that send video wirelessly to a central hard drive / recording device.
- DVRs and NVRs – while DVRs encode and record video, NVRs act as a databank for IP cameras that process video at the source.
- PoE Switch – Power over Ethernet switches allow cameras to draw electricity through its network cable, making extra power lines unnecessary.
