6 tips for a more efficient video surveillance system

Installing a video surveillance system is the best way to protect your property, family and home. Whether in his main or secondary home, such a system will fulfill a preventive and curative role, dissuading possible intrusions and allowing better recovery of stolen goods. The installation of a video surveillance system must however obey certain basic rules for it to be effective, and to be valid in the eyes of insurance companies.

  Here are 6 tips to properly install your cameras, and make your video surveillance system as efficient as possible.

 1. Do not use wide angle cameras.

  Wide-angle cameras are popular because the width of the field they cover makes installation easy. However, they become problematic during the recovery of images and their exploitation. These cameras produce images in the wide field; the zoom which must be done on a face for example, reduces the quality to the point of being unable to discern the details, and therefore use them. It is better to favor cameras with a reduced angle and whose quality remains good for the exploitation of images. These cameras will be installed in rooms that lend themselves better to this type of camera, such as a corridor that must be taken, for example.

 2.  Don't just film your front door.

 Your front door is the door you take to get home, but is not necessarily the door that a potential thief will take. Entrance doors are often overprotected compared to more discreet windows and doors. Each entry point must be filmed more or less directly.

 3.  Protect your camera from the weather.

 Although it may seem obvious, cameras don't like humidity. Ultimately, they will be damaged or even destroyed by humidity without having to be directly affected by the rain. So place them in a waterproof case if they are outside. Also be sure to protect them from the sun's rays which, in summer, can damage them.

 4. Adapt your recorder after installing new cameras.

 When you install your video surveillance security camera systems in Chicago, your recorder can receive images from a number of cameras provided during its installation. If you decide to expand your fleet of cameras, consider adapting or changing your recorder, to avoid placing cameras whose films will not be recorded.

 5. Do not place your cameras too high.

 Placing your cameras in height will aim to create an angle that is ill-suited to the exploitation of the images that will be taken from them. Faces will only be barely visible, especially if the individual is wearing a hood, for example. Opt for cameras installed at breast height, as close as possible to the height of the face so that the images are as clear as possible. Cameras thus arranged will also have the consequence of surprising and impressing.

 6.  Do not use your gutter as a fulcrum.

 Even if the gutters can seem to be good points of attachment, the cameras exert a weight which, in time, can unhook them. In addition, the gutters will gradually collapse and therefore change the angle of the camera.

These tips will help you install an effective video surveillance system. In addition, keep abreast of legislation in this area, in particular offering insurance a suitable system.
