Commercial CCTV Security Systems For Auckland Business Premises
Setting up security surveillance for an Auckland commercial property can mean a whole slew of different things. The type of property and business, size of building and area to be covered, entry points and many other aspects all come into play. Auckland commercial CCTV security systems play a major role in surveillance for businesses and the properties they occupy.
There are different types of commercial CCTV security cameras that are used in a commercial setting. This link to Samsung gives a brief introduction to some of the surveillance cameras and related equipment you can find.
Types of commercial security camera
Some cameras are in plain sight to show would-be miscreants that their activities are being monitored. These are used as more of a deterrent factor. Other CCTV surveillance cameras are kept hidden. These record detailed images of thieves, trespassers and vandals which can be used later in case evidence is needed in court proceedings. Of course there are different sizes, and there is also varying video quality and operational features among the different security camera models.
Common questions about commercial CCTV security systems
Some of the most common queries people have relate to the technical aspects of the devices:
Are you talking 1080p imaging, which provides you with a high definition feed? What storage capacity do you need when it comes to saving footage? What other systems do you need tied into your security camera network?
Other questions refer to the physical location and number of cameras that might be needed.
The answers to each depend on your premises, likely offenders and of course your budget.
Of course, one of the largest factors when it comes to setup and cost is how many cameras you need overall. A bank or luxury department store might be littered with security cameras, even in a very small space whereas a small retail outlet can be covered with a few cameras and a PC to monitor them. An industrial plant, big distribution centre or a data warehouse will need more cameras to protect the surrounding fence as well as entry points.
There are two important aspects of security cameras that businesses sometimes forget which they need to consider. First, have you ever been watching a news show that featured security camera footage that wasn’t good enough quality to really identify a person or even an event?
What is the point of having a security camera network if you’re not going to be able to benefit from the use of the cameras? Make sure you know what you are getting when it comes to the quality of the imaging. It does not mean you necessarily have to go with the best, but you do want them to serve their function.
Secondly, many businesses do not consider their outdoor security camera options as much as they should. Sometimes, they end up wishing they had spent more time or increased the budget a little so they can use better quality or more long-lasting devices. Even if it has nothing to do with the business itself, outdoor security footage can sometimes help solve other crimes in the area.
Of course outdoor security camera installation and setup in general of all cameras and security equipment has much to do with the type of business as mentioned. A large retail store might want cameras in the car parking lot to monitor the activity in such a large area. Other businesses might want commercial CCTV security systems to monitor who is coming in and out of the building. Another thing to consider is having different types of cameras within the same business for specific areas of the business.
A good example of this is of course the outdoor security cameras vs. the indoor surveillance cameras. Another example would be more high definition cameras in areas where more expensive merchandise is located. Or, you can have a higher concentration of cameras at these locations.
There are of course many different brands for each type of security camera, and you want to be sure you check out which features are exclusive to certain brands and types.
Would you like to be able to view cameras within your business from your cell phone or any other type of device that connects to the Internet? Monitor cameras on your phone, tablet or laptop, either from home or while out and about in the city. A better use of your time would be to have the cameras connected to a monitoring service so that a round-the-clock watch can be maintained.
Installation costs are another thing to consider when opting for security cameras to be setup. You do have to operate on a budget, but you do not want to sacrifice the security of your business to save a few dollars. Professional testing and commissioning of the systems is well worth the extra expense.
You also want to feel like your inquiry is being handled as a priority. After all, the security and safety of your business is a top priority. So, upon contacting an Auckland commercial CCTV security systems business, you expect for someone to be able to outline what they can offer you, take in what you tell them, and get back to you soon to schedule an in person visit and quote. It would be nice if all this could be done in one day right?
