When thinking about installing a surveillance camera system, it seems like there are endless options. Therefore, there are some factors to consider:
Choose cameras with dust and moisture-proof housing if they will be placed in high dirt and dust areas.
Cameras which are out in the open can probably deter a thief by their presence. However, a hidden camera is best, if you want to gather information secretly.
Are your cameras needed to focus on a single place or scan a wide area of space? Many cameras come with lenses which adjust and others come with pan, tilt and zoom capabilities.
If you want to observe an area with harsh lighting you will need a high resolution camera system. For a small, well-lit area a basic camera system with a low resolution should be fine.
A simple security camera set-up can rely on memory cards installed in the cameras themselves. If you are looking for a long-term and large data storage, opt for a NVR (network video recorder).
Finally, if you want to observe areas with no or low light, invest in a camera which has infrared LEDs.
Above all, a surveillance camera system can be fully customized and designed. Therefore, it is important to work with an experienced security consultant. As a result, they are trained to make sure all your assets are protected and needs are met. For more information, contact DTM Installations at (845) 429-7100.
