The CCTV surveillance cameras that were only ever seen at the banks or in retail stores a few years back are now seen almost everywhere. Areas such as at restaurants, traffic intersections, gas stations, mini storages, homes and almost every business have a CCTV surveillance system of their own.
With the increase in crime rate, everyone has been trying their best to keep their home and businesses safe and one of the most common ways to make your home and businesses safe is by installing surveillance cameras.
But sometimes even with camera surveillance people’s homes and businesses still get robbed, this happens often because of inefficient surveillance camera installation.
Most people install camera surveillance themselves and while doing so they make certain mistakes that nullify the whole purpose of camera surveillance. As they leave certain key spots that the robbers use and don’t get caught in the surveillance footage.
So the best way to avoid this situation is by hiring a certified security company to install your surveillance camera system. These certified security companies have trained and experienced professionals who know how to install surveillance cameras properly in commercial and residential buildings.
With the rapid innovation in technology, surveillance cameras have also been coupled with developing technologies such as cloud computing, the internet, and even automation to expand their capabilities. These innovations have improved their ease of use and increased their efficiency.
With these new innovations, cameras that were once only used for security purposes are now also being used for other purposes such as marketing, behavioural studies and for human resources.
But to get the best results from these innovations in surveillance cameras you have to install them properly.
So if you are looking at taking advantage of these new surveillance camera technology to help your business whether for security or for other applications, keep on reading as in this blog we have outlined the top 3 tips that will help you install your surveillance camera system perfectly.
Consider Your Lighting
The first thing you need to consider while installing your camera surveillance is the lighting. The lighting plays a very vital role, as cameras placed in improper lighting will not be able to record effectively.
So make sure the areas you want to be under surveillance have sufficient and consistent lighting for the camera to be able to capture identifying details such as facial features.
Because if there is not proper lighting then your camera surveillance will not be able to capture the exact facial features of someone entering your home or business.
Also in areas where you don’t have adequate lighting, you should install night-vision capable CCTV cameras.
Install Cameras To Monitor Hidden Entry Points
Robbers typically use back doors, basement doors and windows to break into buildings because such entry points are not usually targeted by camera surveillance.
Therefore, make sure that you place your cameras in all of these hidden entry points so that whenever a burglar tries to enter your home or business from these points you can capture him/her in your surveillance footage.
Hide Your Cables
Another important thing that you need to remember while installing your cameras is that the wires of your camera surveillance should not be easily reachable or exposed.
Because if the cables of your cameras are exposed and are easily reachable then the robbers will cut them and will disconnect the camera surveillance before entering your home or business.
Therefore, make sure that all the wires of your camera surveillance system are hidden so that no robber can disconnect the surveillance system.
One of the easiest ways to install your surveillance camera system perfectly is by hiring a certified security company. Professional security companies have professionals who will install your surveillance system perfectly.
