CCTV Cameras have become a necessity of modern-day businesses. These cameras provide security against thefts and robberies. The video feed is also recorded, and comes in handy for later reviewing. But installing the system is not a play game. It requires planning and time before it is ready for use. However, by ensuring that all the requirements for CCTV installation are in hand, we can have a good system in place that would be well worth it.
You have purchased the whole system now installation is the only thing left standing in between you and complete security. With the help of a checklist, we can ensure that our system is installed properly and fast.
CCTV Installation Kit Tech Check
First check whether you have all the necessary equipment. The CCTV system comes with the camera (as per your requirement), wires, and video recorder. The monitor can be purchased separately or any pre-existing monitor can be used in its place.
Since all the devices will require electricity, have a separate connection of light sockets for the equipment. If the building already has good electrical system in place then make use of it, no need for having a separate one.
First requirement for CCTV installation are the wires. It is mandatory for the wires to be concealed. This question arises only if you have purchased a point to point system and not a signal system. Instead of breaking into the wall, the wires can be hidden away into the ceiling. Make sure the wires match up to the length of the room.
When it comes to keeping your home secure via CCTV, the camera is perhaps the most important aspect of a surveillance system. Placing the cameras is easy; scout the place for such a point that will give a view of the entrance and exit, and will also capture the faces of all the people present in the room. Mount the camera in this place as it may save the need for another camera.
Any old monitor can be used; there is absolutely no need for purchasing a new monitor. As long as the feed is viewable, a simple monitor is fine. In case of high-definition video feed, the recorder has the capacity to record the footage in high quality. The monitor need not be high-definition.
The video recorder is the heart of the system and needs to be taken care of. It has to be placed under lock and key for safety. The recorder can be stored away in a closet or safe like place which can be locked up. The wires can be safely connected in there, and the device will do its work. The only thing would be to make the place fire safe.
After checking and installing the above things, switch on and check whether everything is working properly. Make immediate changes if necessary.
Installing CCTV can be complicated but with just a few simple requirement checks, it can be done quicker and effectively than most people know.
