Installing Professional CCTV Cameras
CCTV cameras are used by businesses, industrial workshops and even home owners around the world. It is a great way to have an additional measure of security in and around your property and it will also allow you to see what is happening when you are not around. There are many different types of cameras that you can install, which is why you should always work with a professional installer.
CCTV cameras are usually installed alongside other security products like electric fences, perimeter beams and alarms. This is a great way to receive alerts when an intruder has entered your property. If you work with a supplier like Tandem Security Systems, you will have access to a variety of CCTV cameras and other security products that can be installed around your property to increase your security. With these cameras, you will be able to view live footage of anything happening on your property, depending on your set-up. You can even view these feeds on your smartphone or home computer. This system can be designed according to your needs and budget; a demonstration can be arranged in order to help you make the right product decision as it is essential to install the right camera product for your needs.
Security applications that can be installed in your home include the following:
- An intercom system: A black and white camera is installed at the gate and it has a built-in video screen in the handset. Although it is very functional, the picture quality is not very good.
- Gate cameras: A camera is installed at the gate and can be connected to either a loose monitor, or a television set via a radio signal or cable.
- Multiple cameras: When multiple CCTV cameras are installed, you will have to use a quad splitter, in the case for example of installing four cameras. During this installation, four individual cameras, a power supply, a monitor and a splitter is used. You will be able to view multiple images at a time. These systems are however often unable to record.
- Recording: You can replace the quad splitter with an embedded DVR. This is a digital system that is more expensive, but has the ability to record and is able to connect to the internet. Recordings can be set when movement is picked up and, if needed, the user will be able to go back to a specific date and time as well. This facility makes for a very useful security feature.
Keep in mind that you can also use rental systems. The monthly instalments are partly tax deductible and during the lease period the client will be provided with a maintenance contract. Depending on the contract, the equipment can become the property of the customer once the lease period has expired.
