Security is very vital for any business. There is no way you can be profitable without protecting your assets. Electronic video security systems are one way you can keep tabs with what is happening in and around your premises. Today we at TR Alarm Systems Inc would like to discuss CCTV system installation in NJ.
The systems have become intelligent over time enabling you to detect any motion, follow a person or an object, send notifications on your mobile phone, contact law enforcement agencies, detect abandoned objects, detect loitering, scan for increased heat levels and much more. They are also systems that can be customized to meet your specific needs.
However, with all these options and capabilities, it may be hard to pinpoint the exact features that you need for your business. Here are some guidelines for you.

The resolution of the camera
This is a vital aspect of video surveillance. You need a camera that can give you images or video where you can identify individuals or objects in it. Do not go for a camera with a resolution below 720p. If you need cameras to detect vehicle registration numbers and other small things, you need the one with a higher resolution.
The frame rate is the transition from one image to the other in a video. The higher the frame rate, the smoother the video. All a video is, is a series of still images that are taken in close succession. We recommend cameras that have a frame rate of not less than 30 frames per second.
There are several camera models in the market today. The common ones are dome cameras, bullet cameras, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras and heat cameras. Each has its best area of application. For example, bullet cameras are ideal for surveillance on a hallway, while PTZ cameras are ideal for a large park where you can pan the video to identify something.
Indoor and outdoor camera
There is a difference between indoor and outdoor cameras. Outdoor cameras are weather proof, and cannot be easily damaged by thugs or malicious people (IP7 rated). Indoor cameras are cheaper but more vulnerable if used outside.
You can store videos on DVR that is located on the premises. However, you can also decide to store images in the cloud or on a remote NVR systems out of the premises. When you decide to install CCTV with us, our experts will help calculate the adequate storage space for the number of cameras that you have. Another thing that you have to look at is the compression rates of the DVR or NVR systems. Compression eliminates unnecessary data to save you space. The common compression technologies are H.264 and MJPEG.
When it comes to installation, you've decided to take this final step because you care about your property safe. As a security company, we at TR Alarm Systems Inc care about our clients. We want them to feel as safe and protected as possible. To ensure this we look out for blind spots, and make a point to understand all the nooks and crannies of the premises to provide maximum security.
