What to look for in a Business Security Camera System

Updated: a day ago


Your decision when looking for a business security camera system will depend on your unique business needs - because you and your company are unique.


We already know that a security system deters crime, gives peace of mind and can even check and protect against claims of liability.


So what should you be thinking about when making your decision?


Coverage area


Do you want to cover indoors only? Or just outdoors? Do you need to cover just loading areas or tools left on premises at night?

Don't rule out PTZ cameras (pan,tilt,zoom) as these can save on costs because you can cover large areas instead of installing several cameras.


Style of Camera


Bullet, dome, eyeball or hidden camera and yes you can choose the colour. Black, grey or white? Some cameras also come equipped with audio.






Resolution | Image Quality


So when browsing you will see 2MP, 4MP and now 6MP CCTV Cameras. It's all about the resolution and clarity of what you are seeing. When we talk about MP, we are talking about megapixels and the greater the megapixels the better resolution and clarity.


If we are ever in the unfortunate situation of needing to refer to CCTV Footage for a crime purpose, you want the best and clear shot of capturing what you need, and these are certainly the equipment for the job.




Recording | Storage Space


Have a good think about this. DVR's can come with inputs | channels of 4, 8, 16 or 32. This means how many CCTV cameras can run off the DVR. And consider the hard-drive storage of the unit. DVR's can record for 7 or 14 days before they start recording over the oldest footage.





Motion Detection | Analytics


Something that's becoming more popular.


We are hearing analytics mentioned more and more, so how does it relate to CCTV?


In a nutshell you can set perimeters. And how is this of benefit? Let me give you an example. You can set a perimeter around your house and if anything enters that your get a notification ping on your mobile or email.


You can set also set a perimeter for abandoned objects. So what do I mean by that? You can set a perimeter on a stairway and if anyone leaves an item for example a suitcase your get a notification. This also works in reverse - object removal. Set the perimeters around infrequent used items such as plant machinery and if someone removes it – your get a notification.
