The internet is awash with CCTV gadgets, but which one is right for you?
It’s always important to shop around and find a great deal when it comes to CCTV Installation in Dudley, Halesowen, Stourbridge, or Walsall, but money is not the only thing you should consider.
Many cheaper CCTV cameras come with only a small amount of storage space, and in order to compress the recorded data, the footage can be low in resolution and quality. It’s great to have an inexpensive camera, but what’s the point if it fails to help you identify a thief?
You should also check to make sure that the camera has a night vision mode, or you could be left in the dark.
A lot of people buy a flashy looking camera and position it outside, when in fact the CCTV System is only meant to be housed indoors. Not all camera’s have sturdy waterproof casing, so always make sure your CCTV is fit for the environment that it will be placed in.
Depending on your property, a WiFi enabled camera may be a good solution because it requires less wiring, however wireless systems can fail if they need to be placed too far from the recorder. DVR systems can communicate with your camera via WiFi, but the distances that they will work on will vary from camera to camera. Always check what the WiFi distance is, and if your setup will meet the requirements.
Often, one camera is not enough to provide adequate coverage around your home or business. Think about the various points of entry that an intruder may use. You should also consider car parks and drives as a sensible place to install CCTV, because unfortunately car crime is still on the rise in many areas of the country.
