Four Tips for Choosing the Best CCTV Systems for Your Property

Security has become a huge industry in South Africa, because of the high crime rate. New CCTV systems are arriving on the market all the time and, if you are in the process of choosing one, you may find yourself overwhelmed by all the types and models on the market. If you are frustrated by the websites and brochures for CCTV camera products, and bewildered by the variety of makes and models, don’t despair! We are here to help you choose the best CCTV systems for your property.

To make the decision-making process easier, all you have to do is to consider the following:

  1. What do you need to capture? A CCTV camera does not have the field of vision that we do. The camera is usually restricted by the angle it is installed at, and some CCTV systems can provide a wide range, and function in almost any lighting condition. This is why it is important to think about what you need to see. There is no reason to spend a great deal of money on a 360-degree CCTV system if you only need to focus on who is ringing your front door bell, or the person at your gate.
  2. How much money can you spend? You must align your budget with your needs. Remember that buying cheap is often more expensive than you think. Rather invest in more expensive CCTV systems with high clarity and better functionality than a cheaper one with unnecessary gimmicks. With a proper system, you will always be able to add components as you need them.
  3. Consider the data spend: You need to think about the recordings and where, how often, and how you need to view them. CCTV systems can be integrated with a variety of systems, such as mobile phone technology and cloud storage. Just keep in mind that security data streaming can use lots of data. Storage security is vital, and you must find a secure, yet affordable, storage facility for your data.
  4. Ask a professional: Very few of us know all there is to know about security systems. The best solution is to consult a professional in the trade.
