Why Should Commercial Security Cameras be Professionally Installed?
If you have yet to take the plunge and purchase commercial security cameras to protect your business, now is the perfect time to do it. New technologies such as face detection, HD security cameras and cloud recording have made modern CCTV systems a valuable asset. One important recommendation is to make sure that your commercial security cameras are installed by a professional. Here are a few reasons why the extra installation costs are worth it.
A professional will be able to help determine where the optimal locations will be for each camera. This will help to ensure that there are no “dead spots” or areas that can not be consistently monitored. Professional installers will also focus on smaller but important details such as ideal viewing angles, heights, lighting (or lack of) and various other factors to make sure that your business is completely covered - at all times.
With all the new and advanced software that modern CCTV systems are capable of, setting up the “computer” side of things can get really complicated. Will you leave the cameras set to DHCP or assign static IPs? What rules for human and object detection will you assign for each location? Do you want instant notifications whenever motion is detected, or only when a face is detected during specific hours? These and many more settings can quickly get complicated, and a professional will be able to get your system working the way you envisioned it.
Finally, you need a system that works when it needs to work. Intruders or emergencies can happen at anytime, so the reliability of the system needs to be on point. Having it professionally installed will help to ensure that any issues are preemptively detected and dealt with, well before they arise.
A commercial security camera system is a great investment. Make sure that you have a professional to make sure it is installed right, and gives you the return you deserve.
