When you think of modern security systems, CCTV (closed-circuit television) is probably one of the things you think of first. Given how integral they have been to security systems for decades, it makes sense that they continue to be one of the most widely used security measures at homes and at many businesses. The advancement in CCTV security system design and capability has placed them firmly in the front row of the most used security systems in small businesses. Installing these security systems gives business owners peace of mind and assurance of capturing and monitoring any unusual behavior or criminal activity that might not be noted and handled immediately.
What is a CCTV Security System?
CCTV is also frequently called video surveillance, and this type of surveillance system utilizes video cameras to record constantly and transmit signals to defined centers. More advanced systems use digital video recorders. They may be operated from an enclosed room or in an open space to monitor ongoing activities.
CCTV security systems can vary in quality and performance. Some of the performance options you can see in modern CCTV systems include:
- Motion-detector sensors
- Email alerts
- Decentralized IP cameras
- Infrared capability
- Live transmission
- Access to archive records
- Facial and voice recognition system
- Mobile app support capability
- Wireless enabled systems
- Remote monitoring
What to Consider Before CCTV Installation
Before moving forward with CCTV installation, you should consider what you need to keep your business secure. Not every location will require the same level of security.
The main thing you should consider is whether or not you want the cameras to be discrete. If the cameras are discrete, then people won’t be aware that there is 24/7 surveillance and are more likely to commit crimes. However, if the cameras are placed out in the open, potential criminals are less likely to commit a crime against the business because they will be discouraged by the fact they’re being recorded. Even the knowledge that they might be captured on camera can deter potential criminals.
Other things you should consider are what type of lens and the quality of the camera. For example, a convenience store may only need a small lens to capture the front entrance, whereas a larger building or property may require a larger lens to capture a larger area on camera. On top of that, you want to pick the best spot to install your CCTV, where it is most likely to capture any problems.
