Security Cameras: Protection And Peace Of Mind
To protect your business, you are probably willing to work long hours and make numerous sacrifices. Fortunately, you can protect your business from threats such as theft and robbery without troubling yourself beyond the expenses involved in buying a few cameras . Studies have shown that simply the sight of security cameras deters many criminals. While the cameras cannot arrest suspects, knowing that the crime will be observed usually spurs criminals to seek other targets.
If you want to protect your company from losses incurred by break-ins and other attempts to steal, review the available types of security cameras.
Types of Security Cameras:
CCTV Security Cameras
The acronym stands for closed-circuit TV. The cameras are typically hard wired to the recording device (DVR/NVR). The cameras then send the video through the CCTV cable to the DVR unit. CCTV security cameras have been around for 50+ years. CCTV camera quality continues to improve, and because the cost is low, CCTV cameras are a very popular option.
IP Security Cameras
IP security cameras are similar to CCTV cameras but incorporate more modern technology. IP cameras run on Ethernet cable. Unlike CCTV cameras, IP cameras can send and receive data. IP cameras typically provide about 4-6 times the clarity of a traditional high-resolution CCTV camera.
Outdoor Security Cameras
Many businesses use cameras inside their facilities. However, outdoor cameras can also be extremely beneficial. They are particularly useful when you need to observe a large exterior area. They can be used for security purposes and also for simple methods of observation. All our camera systems have built-in motion detectors so that they do not need to record continuously.
Security Camera Purchasing and Installation Options
Although most businesses can benefit from a professionally configured and installed security system, you do not need a complicated arrangement in order to benefit from video security. You can buy surveillance cameras in small numbers. In such cases, you will need to make sure that the camera has a way to store video. Wherever the camera is, you will need to visit the site frequently to maintain it and retrieve stored images or video.
You can easily install simple systems and solo cameras yourself; however, for more complex camera arrangements, you may consider professional help. Typically the larger the system, the more complex it is to configure and install. A Technician or Project Manager from JSB Surveillance can come to your place of business to customize the camera and DVR solution that is right for you.
