One of the important aspects of selecting the best security system for small business surveillance is to determine its applications. Small business security and surveillance can be used for a number of goals besides simple monitoring of a property.
To make a well-informed decision, there are a few critical points worth considering:
Questions to ask regarding business security and surveillance applications include:
Indoors & outdoors, employees & customers, high risk areas, high risk times of day/night, high risk days of week?
Consider indoor vs outdoor, how many cameras and size of area to be covered, resolution of video footage required. Find more information in the Camera Advice Centre.
Consider here how high resolution your footage will be. Check out more detail in the Video Recorder Advice Centre. Price is definitely not the only consideration here, as lower cost options will have lower file compression, which is likely to result in larger file sizes, and therefore more storage costs. Find more information in the Video Recorder Advice Centre.
Many of the decisions about your camera and your video recorder will impact how much storage you will need. Your storage requirements will also be impacted by:
If you are looking at expanding your system in future then you need to invest in IP cameras where the connection with NVR happens over the ethernet.
While in case of an analog system, the system is completely wired and gets very cumbersome to manage if you are looking for future expansion.
So if you have a power cut, or a network shortage, you want to be sure your system will still be able to record footage, via a WD PURPLETM microSD Card.
