When it comes to a professional surveillance system, having a surveillance system setup will not be enough. In order to properly safeguard your valuables and remain secure, you must discover the best practices for CCTV camera use as well as what you should avoid doing when it comes to your surveillance.

 

DON’T OF CCTV

DON’T JUST PICK THE MOST AFFORDABLE CHOICE.

It’s always wonderful to save a little money, but you can’t afford to take that risk when it comes to your CCTV surveillance. Always do your research and don’t compromise on the configuration you’ll need for total protection.

 

It’s just as harmful to have no surveillance at all if you don’t have the right set up and risk blind spots or equipment that doesn’t perform the functions you need.


DO NOT PURCHASE A CAMERA THAT IS INADEQUATE FOR THE SIZE OF YOUR SPACE.

You’ll need to tailor your surveillance system to the area you’ll be watching. Larger locations will demand more cameras and a wider range of resolutions than smaller spaces. Fish eye cameras and PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras are frequently requested, even if they do not always fit the requirement of having more static cameras.

THE DO’s OF CCTV CAMERAS

PLACE YOUR CAMERAS IN A DIFFICULT-TO-REACH AREA.

You want your cameras to function well while remaining out of the way of any illegal activity. If you don’t want your cameras to be dragged down or destroyed, make sure they’re properly installed and on the appropriate brackets.

 

MAKE SURE ALL OF YOUR ACCESS AND EXIT POINTS ARE COVERED.

At least one camera should be pointed at the entrance and exit points of the property. Covering shared lift lobbies and mailboxes is also a smart idea.

 

ALSO CONSIDER NIGHT VISION.

You must also ensure that your camera produces a good image even when it is dark or at night. This is a regular feature of high-quality cameras.
