Regardless of the type business you own, security is always needed. This is why there is a plethora of business video surveillance systems to meet the needs of all kinds of stores. However, with so many options it can be overwhelming to decide which system is the one that will best serve your business’ purposes. Luckily, as Central Florida’s leading security system installation company, we have put together some tips to help you navigate the process of purchasing your next surveillance system.

The Essential Questions When Choosing a Business Video Surveillance System

1. What type of video surveillance system are you interested in?

There are three basic types of video surveillance systems: IP cameras, DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders) and NVR (Network Video Recorder). They all have pros and cons but here are some of the highlighting features of each one:

  • IP cameras: these types of security cameras’ used internet and computer network to send data. If your store is located in a rural area without great internet coverage, this might be a factor to consider.
  • DVR: digital video recorders use a digital format to store the data, such as SD cards or disks drives. If you are thinking on having 24 hour video surveillance this might be a good option for storage purposes.
  • NVR: network video recorders are usually wireless, which makes them easy to set up.

2. Where will the cameras be located?

Are you thinking about installing the system outdoors? indoors? or both. Depending on your answer, you should be considering whether or not you need a system with night vision or waterproof, for example.

3. How many cameras does your business need?

There is no rule of thumb to determine the amount of cameras needed in a business. It will depend on the space, the camera capabilities &  how much you are planning to spend on your video surveillance system.  We recommend contacting a professional to take a closer look at your specific case. There is not one-size-fits-all in the video surveillance world.
