Significant Factors to consider while installing a CCTV Camera in Home
While it is possible to set up a security camera system all by yourself but it is quite time-consuming. In addition to that, without seeking professional help, CCTV installation can result in poor coverage, optimized storage, and insufficient control.
Here are some of the significant factors need to be considered while installing CCTV Cameras.
Outdoor Installation Points: You will have to determine which areas are most vulnerable and need to be covered. The most popular places for an outdoor camera are above the garage door or looking over a front or back porch.
Indoor Installation: Installing an indoor camera can be as easy as finding the right spot, plugging it in, turning it on, and syncing it with your mobile or desktop app. A good indoor camera should have a decent field of view, which you can get with a higher corner or shelf.
Types of CCTV Cameras: Wireless CCTV cameras are the most commonly used ones nowadays. They eliminate the need to install wires. Moreover, these cameras can be easily controlled. Bullet Cameras are generally fixed and point only in one direction. Dome Cameras provide 360-degree coverage around them. You can choose the camera based on the type of coverage you require.
Legal Aspect: For a home CCTV installation, you must notify any workers who come to your home that there are CCTV cameras installed. Home employees and visitors must be informed verbally.
Permission: Depending on where you will be doing a CCTV installation, you may need to get official permission from relevant authorities. Home CCTV installation in apartment blocks usually requires permission too.
Technical aspects: Before installing a CCTV Camera, a few technical details should be taken into consideration;
• Ensure cameras can record HD Videos
• Local storage options vary by camera, but may include microSD cards, USB drives, DVRs, NVRs.
• Opt for a system that offers remote control and access. This will let you monitor and control the CCTV camera even when you are traveling.
