August 9th, 2019



Surveillance cameras are an important aspect of your business no matter what industry you are in. With the right surveillance system in place, you can efficiently monitor your employees, your assets, and all business operations conveniently. With remote monitoring capabilities, this is possible from your mobile device from anywhere you are and at any time. 

However, there are so many different varieties of surveillance systems and security cameras to choose from that it can sometimes be difficult to narrow down your choices and find what will best suit your business. 

Today, we will go over a few of the more important features to look for when choosing the best business surveillance cameras.

Comparisons

The first thing you will want to do when choosing a surveillance system is compare each system with one another and then decide which one best suits the individual needs of your business and property. You want to find the most cost-effective and specific to your needs security system possible.

High Definition

High definition resolution is one of the more critical elements to consider. The more pixels the cameras have, the more detailed the image will be. When choosing your security cameras, you will want to choose cameras with a resolution of 1080p, 1440p, and 4k. 

If you choose a lower resolution security camera, the images will be too blurry, and you won't have the crystal clear footage you need in case something happens on your property.

Motion Sensors

There are some areas of your property that are probably harder to keep a close eye on. For example, your breakroom, storage area, staircases, and parking lots are areas that need to be monitored. This is when motion sensors come in handy. It allows you to monitor these areas while capturing when someone is there. 

The cameras will begin recording any motion that is detected in these areas, so you have 24/7 monitoring. This works for both indoor and outdoor installations.

Infrared Night Vision

Night vision and low-light capabilities are also essential because more business-related crimes do happen at night under the cover of darkness. The best security cameras will allow for long-range night vision so you can capture every detail of every incident. 

Low-light capabilities also help with poorly lit outdoor areas of the business that you need to monitor. These cameras can still capture a good image regardless of how much natural light is there or not.

Tamper Prevention

Why invest in security cameras that can easily be damaged? Tamper prevention and detection mean that your cameras are vandal-proof, so criminals will not be able to cut any lines, block the lens, or disable the cameras. You will also receive a notification the second that your cameras are tampered with so you can take immediate action. 

Pan-Tilt-Zoom

Finally, this is a good feature for both small and larger businesses because it offers you more control over all of your monitoring needs. You can remotely move your cameras side to side, change the angle view, and zoom in and out when needed.
