How to Have Perfect CCTV Installation

1)   Buy what you need. Every business has different CCTV needs. Some don’t need CCTV at all. Banks need top-level CCTV and a hair stylist may need only a few cameras. Before getting a quote, you must consider your objectives.

2)   Locate cameras correctly. Is the camera in the right position? Do you want to record the face or back of the head? Cameras for monitoring purposes should be higher than eye level so they can see more. Cameras for identification and recognition should be at eye level so the best image of the face is captured.

3)   Buy the right camera and lens. Make sure you can choose the right lens first! Some people who try to do it themselves buy CCTV packages off a shelf. These packages usually have 4 cameras, all with the same wide lens, which can’t be adjusted. Wide lenses can only monitor. They can’t be used for recognition and identification, because they do not give a clear image of the person. Evidence without recognition and identification quality images will not stand up in court.

4)   Buy the right Digital Video Recorder (DVR). If the recording of live pictures is required then a higher specification of resolution – image quality – is required of the DVR. Cameras have four different technical levels of resolution. Resolution quality must be balanced against recording speed to achieve higher specification objectives.
