Security System Needs

security-camera-1316862-639x852When deciding to add CCTV or HD CCTV security systems to your home or small business, you need to think about a few of your options and what is best for your needs and premises.

High Definition or normal CCTV?

Although HD CCTV is relatively new to the market, there are some great affordable systems to get that extra resolution and performance compared to normal CCTV systems. It is ultimately your choice however whether you feel you need the added benefits, and we can help determine which system will be right for you.

Do you want only inside cameras, or outside ones as well?

Inside cameras tend to be cheaper because they don’t need to be weather proof like their outdoor counterparts. You also want to think about whether you would want an outdoor camera to be in view to deter burglars or someplace hidden for discreet monitoring. You will also need to think about how many you want, which will depend upon the areas you want monitored and if more than one camera is needed to do the job.

Motion detection or 24/7 coverage?

Systems are set up differently and can either record constantly, or some can be set to only record when motion is detected. CCTV that is set to record all the time will need a lot more memory to store the footage, but sometimes motion detection software may not pick up on everything, so it will depend on how often you need your space monitored. You can free up storage by reviewing tapes and discarding the data every once in a while as well.

Do you want instant remote access?

Many security cameras on the market now are able to be accessed remotely by a device connected to the internet such as mobile phones, computers or tablets. Along with remote monitoring, some systems allow you to change settings and control the cameras remotely as well, such as change the position, zoom etc which can be helpful.
