Types Of Commercial Security Camera Systems
Although crime, especially violent crime, has been on a downward trend for over 10 years in New Zealand, and much of the civilized world, some of the crimes have become more brutal, while thefts and burglaries have become much more sophisticated. Due to all the technological advances of late, it has now become quite economical to install a closed-circuit TV monitoring system in your business. There are several different options that you need to be aware of when choosing your commercial security camera systems – base unit, wiring system, and other options, let us take a closer look at those now.

First Decide Wired, Or Wireless Security Cameras.
In the past a wireless system would cost quite a bit more money than a wired system. The wired system had other advantages too. It was more reliable, easier to maintain, and the individual sensors much less expensive. Nowadays, however, the price of the wireless systems has dropped considerably, to now be on the level with a complete installation of the wired system. Keep in mind that the technicians who install the wired systems make quite a bit of money per hour during installation, and again for maintenance as well. A wireless security camera system (see here for more details) can nearly be installed completely by a handy do-it-yourself person, and yearly maintenance checks are a breeze to do. Since each sensor, camera, or detector, has its own wireless transmitter, no wires need to be run to the base unit, which is why it is so easy to install. With this type of system you can include motion detectors, carbon dioxide detector, smoke detector, and intruder switches at all the doors and windows at your location, in addition to your security cameras.
However, for larger installations such as a factory, warehouse or large office, installing a system yourself is not practical. For one thing it will take a long time but it also needs far more care and testing to make sure you are fully protected than a smaller system.
Get The Right Kind Of Commercial Security Camera Systems For Each Location.
There are different kinds cameras that can be purchased and installed in many different kinds of locations. If you have a dark area, near your utility room, you would want to install the cameras that have the built-in infrared lights, many of which can be used as motion detectors as well. If actually lighting the area is of importance, there are also cameras that have built-in LED lighting that can be set to come on automatically when motion is detected or remain on permanently. In areas where there are deep shadows and bright lighting combined, there’s a type of camera called wide dynamic range surveillance cameras that should be able to see in areas of stark, strong contrast. In addition to that, many of these cameras are available in all-weather enclosures, they can be mounted outside to keep an eye on parking lots, waste disposal areas, and even the outside of your rear entrance. Any place that is subject to high humidity, dampness, dust, or extreme heat can make use of the weatherproof cameras that are made for exterior use.
Add Extra Sensors For Convenience And Security.
There are a wide variety of different sensors that can add more security to your system or just convenience for your business. There are under the mat sensors that can set off a tone each time a new client comes in through your front door, or if someone enters into your warehouse, when no one is looking. These under the mat sensors provide a dual-purpose, by alerting you to the presence of someone, while also alerting the possible intruder to the fact that he’s being watched and monitored electronically.
The Base Units Can Do A Variety Of Different Security Tasks.
The modern wireless base units are multifunctional, and can be preset to call your cell phone when an intruder is detected at night, call an alarm company and play a pre-recorded message giving details of the problem. Many base units also have the ability to record hours of video from all the different cameras at your location, then relay all of that data to an online, secure location, or directly to your smart phone for you to examine anywhere in the world. There are even microphones and speakers that can be installed so you can possibly talk to someone directly from the base unit, to your smart phone anytime you please. Once your base unit is tied into all the different sensors, cameras, and has a battery backup, your business is virtually completely covered.
There are lots of different kinds of commercial security camera systems available. For small installations you can go to your local electronics store but for a bigger and more robust system then you are best advised to contact a specialist Auckland commercial security camera systems supplier such as Global Security. Many of the different modules are interchangeable and scalable, so that you can start small and expand out as you see fit. It’s important to take advantage of all the information you can find online, so that you can be up to date when you visit your local store and begin to purchase your system.
