Below are few tips on how to maximise your usage of video surveillance:
  • Strategic Location 

Your security cameras would ideally cover different areas of a building. This is to ensure that all areas are covered and blind spots are reduced. Careful with both indoor and outdoor placements, certain security systems or CCTV need dust and/or waterproof housing in order to prevent natural elements from damaging them. 
  • Camera Exposure 

Visible camera provide a clear signal to everyone that can sees it that your property is under a surveillance system - a good way to prevent potential robbery or crime from happening. There are still malicious people out there that will look blind spots, and this is when a hidden security camera comes in handy. Hidden video surveillance is very useful for warehouses, retail store, and schools. 
  • Image Quality 

The standard quality of security cameras these days is excellent. There are a variety of options as well; ranging from different lenses, zooming capabilty, and night vision. For best result, it is recommended to get the security cameras with high resolution and night vision. 
  • Confidential Access

Very few people should have access to your surveillance system. All video content from the surveillance system is strictly confidential - fall to the wrong hands and many issues can arise in your business or home.
