So you’ve decided to install a security camera systems in your home or business. Where do you start? With so many options out there, its easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to find the package that’s right for your needs and budget. To help you get started, here are a few points that will affect your final decision:
- Your Service Provider
Don’t just select the cheapest supplier – make sure that you choose a reputable alarm system specialist with a proven track record. Remember, the purpose of security camera systems is the safety and security of your home or business premises. You should therefore, ensure that the supplier you select has been around for long enough to have the relevant experience and expertise to deliver a quality service.
- Technical Details
While we all may not be technically savvy, it’s a great idea to do some research before installing a security camera system. Factors to consider are the size of the area you want to be monitored, the number of cameras you require, their data storage options as well as their range and video resolution. If you’re unclear on what technical terms mean, ask a security professional for clarity.
- Camera Location And Positioning
Don’t assume that the security camera installer knows where and how to best position your cameras. Chat to the team about your priority requirements (for example, you may want a full view of the area outside your children’s room windows or the loading bay of your factory). This will help them set up cameras at the locations and angles that best suit your needs.
- Service And Support
It’s not just about choosing the right equipment – service is also key to ensuring that you get the support you need. Your chosen supplier should have a technical team that have practical skills, knowledge and follow industry best practices. Excellent after sales service is also an important factor to consider when selecting a security systems company to partner with, as you want to know you’ll get help should your system malfunction or need an upgrade.
