The correct CCTV system brings to any building, be it commercial or residential, a degree of security that would otherwise be missing. Before checking out a range of different designs, it would be wise to know what dynamics to consider so you can be certain of investing your money wisely.
To begin with take a walk around the building and consider where the threats and weaknesses exist. Make a list of all the places where you would want the cameras to be put up. Usually there are specific areas that are more vulnerable than others, for example doorways and windows.
Once you are clear in your mind of the areas that should be covered by the CCTV system you should tally up the number of cameras that should be installed. Don’t just think of the amount of vulnerabilities; also consider the exact size of each area that you want monitoring. This will have a bearing on the size of the camera lenses used.
Wide angle lenses can of course cover a larger space but the quality of the image may not be so good. Narrower lenses are better suited to smaller areas. If you have concerns about damage to the CCTV then choose cameras that have anti-vandal domes.
Another important consideration is the actual recording facility which is used. This would depend upon the number of cameras that have been installed. If you have between five and eight in your system then opt for an eight channel DVR. If you are only going to put up a couple of cameras then the CCTV system DVR should be a four channel array.
Do not overlook the choice of monitor. A modern DVR should have a VGA connection which allows it to be connected to a computer monitor as well as a regular screen. The resolution on the screen should be adequate to see clearly the images.
