Components of a Business CCTV System
Kick Security up a Notch
February 18, 2021
Every closed-circuit television system has its list of basic components. But when it comes to securing your livelihood, now you mean business. Kick your basic list up a notch with business CCTV components.
Business CCTV Components
One of the main features of any effective CCTV system is scalability. With technology in a constant state of update, you want to invest in something that won’t be obsolete tomorrow. This is especially relevant when you’re looking to budget security for your business. Let’s take a look at how the four main CCTV components fit into your business plan.
Cameras. While you may be able to get away with one or two cameras at home, you’ll want more coverage around the office or warehouse you’re working in. Not only are you looking out for your safety, but also the welfare of employees, customers, vendors, and anyone else who may enter the premises. Keep all your bases covered with some of these value-added features:
- HD video
- Night vision
- Motion sensors
- 180-degree field of vision
- Rugged material
Recording Systems. A commercial-grade recorder should still be user-friendly like the residential models. Many people are already familiar with DVR systems. However, an NVR may be easier to integrate with high-resolution IP cameras to make your system more flexible and future-proofed. Look for some of the following features:
- Wireless capabilities
- Alarm sensors
- Mobile notifications
- Automatic system checks and updates
- Adjustable recording schedule
- User-friendly interface
Monitors. Like a home system, the number of cameras you have should correlate with the number of monitors needed. The monitors must be compatible with the other devices. You won’t be able to see high-res camera footage as well on a low-res monitor.
Video Management System. Easily connect and control all of the components through a VMS. Start, stop, rewind, and search for content with compatible software and a user-friendly interface. Most importantly, check-in when you’re away from work with remote viewing apps.
When you’re ready to install a CCTV for your business, turn to the pros for help. Once you’ve decided on the components, you still need the extra cables, hook-ups, and power supply to connect them all seamlessly. The security experts at Security Five can not only help you collect the components your business needs, but we can configure it all into a workable network that helps keep your company safe.
