Video Surveillance Systems for Your Business


Protecting your business assets should be one of your top priorities after delivering your products or services. One of the easiest ways to do this is with the use of a surveillance camera system. Today’s cameras have great features that can allow you monitor your business remotely via an app on your mobile device or software on your computer. The latest systems can alert you with mobile notifications if there is motion, movement, or a door opens. With increased storage space for recordings, video can be saved for months, if needed. These cameras can deter criminals, but they can also lead to increased employee productivity and as well as keeping them honest.

Where to start? What features should you look for when choosing a system for your business?

HD resolution is important. Clear, sharp images can help solve incidents or crimes. We’ve all seen those fuzzy, grainy images from video cameras on news, where the public is asked to identify a person. Don’t settle for a low-resolution, standard definition cameras.

Your cameras need to have built-in motion detection and most importantly, IR night vision. Higher end cameras will have night vision up to 175 feet.

Bullet cameras, dome cameras, turret cameras, PTZ cameras and even covert cameras...these are all camera types that have very distinctive appearances. They each offer their own unique capabilities. Deciding what camera to use in each situation, is a critical step when installing a surveillance camera system.

Storage capacityHow much will you need? With hard drives in the 1 to 8 Terabyte range, recordings can be saved for months.  Generally, the more cameras you have, the more storage space you will need.

Network capabilities: You can now monitor your system remotely from an app on your   phone or tablet, or from software installed on your computer. You can also look back at your systems recordings remotely too, as well as using motorized zoom and focus.
