Tips for Choosing Surveillance Systems
Surveillance systems come in quite handy when homeowners and business owners want to deter intruders. These systems usually involve setting up CCTV systems, alarms and monitoring devices that can easily detect disturbances and alert occupants. While some surveillance systems use simple hidden cameras to spy on others, other systems are highly technical, encompassing digital video recorders, pinhole cameras, audio systems, and remote monitoring and access capabilities. Here are some tips for finding the best surveillance system for your home:

Tip #1: Plan ahead
Before you go out and buy a surveillance system, walk through your house and decide where you want to put video cameras or other devices. Mark down where you want to place them and what you want them to record. This will help you determine not just how many cameras you will need but also what type.

Tip #2: Decide on the amount of detail desired
Depending on how much detail you expect to see, the camera you choose should feature the desired frame rate. Your surveillance system professional can help you settle on the right frame rate. Generally, the higher the frame rate, the less choppy and more smooth the image will look. If you want the highest quality image, you will need to invest in a camera with full motion capture functions.

Tip #3: Decide on picture type
Consider beforehand whether you want black and white or color. Black and white systems are generally cheaper than color but have a grainier look. However, they do operate better at low light levels than color.

The role of a surveillance system is to keep an ever-present electronic eye around your home, and in order to effectively safeguard your belongings, your cameras and data storage media should be as free of error as possible. Before you hire a security expert to fortify your household, consider soliciting an answer from them using the following questions.

  • What services do you provide?
    Many security companies offer surveillance equipment as part of their package. This can be something as simple as analog devices with removable cassettes to a more complex wireless CCTV array connected to a DVR storage drive. Be aware of the workings of the system before activating it.

  • What are the expected costs of installation?
    The more complex the network, the more expensive it will be to install. CCTV devices which use an analog wireless connection may be hacked into by talented thieves. Digital devices use a higher bandwidth signal and are harder to tap into, but are much more expensive. A wired setup also offers tamper resistance, but requires your home to undergo modifications for installation.

  • How can I keep an area monitored without a thief knowing he or she is being watched? A hidden or spy camera would allow an area to be watched without anyone in its line of view to notice its presence. This acts as a preventative measure against tampering by a robber. Keep in mind that in thirteen states it is illegal for a spy cam to store audio information without written consent by all parties.
