Security cameras are among the best technological
innovations. CCTV cameras are of great assistance with the increase in crime
and other anti-social elements around the world.
While CCTV cameras are extremely popular, people
still seek advice on how to install them. There are still a few things that you
need to remember when hiring a professional CCTV installation company. In the
following article, we have listed some of the most important but basic things
to consider when installing CCTV cameras at home or at the office.
1. Areas of coverage
The CCTV installer will send an analyst to help
locate the best location for mounting the cameras to maximize coverage. You
will have to determine which areas are most at risk and need protection. In
addition, if there are any specific areas the camera needs to cover, you can
let the professional know.
2. CCTV Camera Types
Traditional directional cameras, also known as
bullet cameras, are usually fixed and point in a single direction. In contrast,
dome cameras, common in malls and corporate offices, provide 360-degree
coverage. There are many types of cameras out there that can provide you with
the level of coverage and quality you require. Wireless CCTV cameras are the
most common ones today. No cables are required. Also, they are easy to operate.
Depending on their location, use different types of
cameras. Cameras that are placed outside garage doors are different from those
that are indoors. Therefore, do not neglect indoor coverage. Even total
coverage can be defeated by masked intruders if thieves and burglars learn to
avoid outdoor cameras. The indoor camera is what they don't expect. Low-light
dome cameras indoors can save you a lot of trouble down the road.
4. Legality & Permission
CCTV installation may need official permission from
relevant authorities, depending on where you will be doing it. In addition to
being a legal requirement, it is also a form of courtesy. Chances are, if you
install CCTV cameras outside your home or shop, they will also cover a portion
of your neighbor's property. If your neighbor is uncomfortable, let them know
and change angles.
You must inform the person that they are being
recorded by law. In public areas such as a store or office, this is especially
important. Whenever a worker enters your home to install CCTV, you need to
notify them. You must verbally inform your maid (or visitors outside the door)
if you wish to monitor them. Furthermore, it is absolutely illegal to install
CCTV cameras in private areas like bathrooms.
.5. Technical Aspects
The technical details of your security system
will need to be figured out. Make sure that your cameras can record HD video.
CCTV systems usually come with recording and storage equipment. Online cloud
storage is also an option for storing your recorded videos. A hard drive is
used to store your videos locally. If you reorder a video, you must also choose
the duration for which it will be stored. Depending on your storage capacity, you
can choose anything from one day to three months. Finally, choose a system that
allows remote access and control. It allows you to monitor and control your
CCTV camera even when you are away.
