Technology evolves every day, so finding the best option for your business’s safety and security can be difficult. How many cameras do you need? Do they need mobility? Are you covering a large area or a few small corners? You must consider each of these questions when deciding what video surveillance is best for your company. Many are attracted to cheap prices, flashy features, and real-time notifications. In reality, these items may lead you away from your best security. This article will help you decide how to implement video surveillance into your business.

Identify Pain Points 

Most businesses have distinct reasons for buying a security system. While one may purchase it for protection, the other may choose to use it for employee training or safety. Whatever the reason, identifying stress points is the first consideration when selecting a video surveillance system. A few examples of security surveillance pain points are blind spots, high-traffic areas, or dark areas. Once these pain points are identified, engineers can determine what system best suits your needs. Skilled technicians can help find these areas, but will need information about traffic, tendency, etc. 

Determine Area/Range

Each business needs a unique camera setup to best suit that business’s pain points. While a manufacturing plant may need several different types of cameras, a car dealership may need only one type that covers multiple areas. Each industry requires distinct engineered solutions that best suit your site. Consider these options when determining the best possible solution: 

  • Inside vs. Outside Coverage
  • Square Footage Coverage
  • Field of View
  • Zoom Lens Features

Image Clarity

You’ve seen it before: you’re watching a documentary about violent crime and the lone piece of evidence is a grainy four-second loop of footage. How can you avoid this? 

Nearly all modern surveillance systems feature high-definition video; however, camera resolution is still an important aspect to consider. Camera resolution is measured in pixels. The more pixels, the better your cameras will be at zooming and highlighting dark areas. While high-resolution cameras can be costlier, choosing to make the investment in a better camera system can provide multiple layers of benefits. Better safety, better mobility, and increased image clarity are only a few benefits. For more information on what to consider when you’re selecting what cameras to implement, click here.
