If you intend to install a Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV), there are a number of things you need to remember. These issues will help you get the most out of your CCTV installation. They include;
- Ensure you store the video recorder in a secure environment preferably in a locked cabinet. You need to secure the recorder to make it inaccessible to unauthorized persons or adversaries.
- Have a plan in place to inspect your CCTV equipment regularly. Well-maintained equipment does its desired operations better. Regular Inspection can help uncover and correct faulty and ineffective CCTV components.
- Ensure your video recording equipment has a capacity large enough to store video data spanning up to one week, before replacement.
- When purchasing CCTV cameras, always ensure their corresponding monitors’ resolution matches that of the cameras. This is important in ensuring you get the highest possible quality images for live-viewing.
