What you need to know before you choose CCTV surveillance for Office
Before you start your search for a video surveillance system for your office security, you need a clear understanding of which areas of your floorplan you want to monitor, and why.
You’re specific monitoring and security needs will determine the types of hardware and software you should look for.
No two businesses are the same and they all vary greatly in security needs and size, and there are several factors that go into the decision when selecting a surveillance system that is right for you.
Different types of cameras have different capabilities in regards to how much area they can actually capture. Not all security cameras have the same functionalities and do not provide the same level of surveillance. For instance, there are fixed cameras, PTZ cameras, and virtual PTZ or 360-degree cameras and all of these differ in their capabilities and suit different premises.
With a vast array of CCTV cameras and equipment available, finding the best one that meets your needs is quite difficult. This is because environmental factors such as extreme weather conditions and other aspects such as the area that need to be monitored, the kind of network required, lighting conditions, audio integration, lens, sensor and resolution requirements also need to be looked at.
