Choosing the Right Video Security System for Your Business

Whether you’re a big corporation or a mom and pop store, your business can benefit from a great security system. The first thing to consider is what you want from your security system. Some companies want a visual deterrent. This type of system works well in car lots, outside of restaurants, and in convenience stores. People see a camera and they automatically act better than they would normally.

Sometimes, companies want something more discreet. A video surveillance system that is difficult to see works well in places where you want people to feel comfortable. High-end retailers can benefit from this type of system as well as places that are trying to keep to a certain ambience where visible video cameras would be too much of a distraction.

A indoor system requires a different sensitivity to light than an outdoor system. Typically, outdoor video surveillance requires a sturdier camera that can withstand the elements. Outdoor cameras also face a greater variety of lighting issues, from full sunlight to nighttime darkness.

How much space you need to cover may dictate the angle of the lens and how many cameras you need. A smaller space or a focused area will have different types of components compared to a parking lot or warehouse space.

Some businesses may find it advantageous to record sound as well as video, which could take more storage space if done digitally. Depending on the system, you may need to decide how long you’re going to keep your recordings and under what circumstances you want the camera to turn on.
