The Wrong Way to Buy a CCTV System

Your home or business security system is no joke, and the right security system can keep you as safe as possible. Before you jump into the best CCTV security system money can buy, though, make sure you know what you’re buying. A good security system is more than just buying and installing the first affordable system you can find, though. There are a few things you need to be aware of before you spend your money.

  • Not all products are the same. If you decide to take home the cheapest CCTV system available, you’ll probably get what you pay for. Do not expect the cheap cameras to work as well as the higher-end models. When you pay more, you aren’t just paying more for the brand, you’re paying for quality.
  • Security does not mean 100% safety. There’s no such thing as having a building be completely safe, just safer. Be careful of falling into a false sense of security. Your CCTV system will help protect your business, but relying too much on it can lead to overlooking other important areas of security, like alarm systems and door locks.
  • Installation is key. When you’re installing your security system, make sure your cameras are in the appropriate places. Don’t try to use indoor cameras outdoors to save money, don’t install your indoor camera with too many blind spots, and don’t use an ultra-low resolution camera. All three of these things will lead to frustration when you can’t see anything on your recorded film.

Your CCTV system can be incredibly useful for you and your business, but don’t assume it’s an easy process. Especially if you’re securing your business, it can be a complicated process. We can get you started and set up in a way to ensure maximum security for your business.
