Deciding to install a video security system in your workplace is a big step for any business. A solid security consultation can help answer any questions you might have and give you a better idea of the solutions needed to address your security concerns. Before you request a site visit from a security consultant, you need to take some time to think about your security needs and to get a better grasp of the scope and budget for your camera installation project. Read on for our tips on preparing for your next security camera consultation.
Know your budget
Every project should start with a budget. Our sales and security experts work hand-in-hand with you to recommend the right equipment to accomplish the goals of your project while also staying on budget. With our free site visit and consultation, our security professionals can help you develop the solutions that best fit your business’ needs. More than just a sales call, our experts review your entire site and provide a 100 percent accurate quote for your security camera needs.
Make sure to have a copy of your site plan ready when your security consultant arrives. Your site plan should include locations of interior walls, significant machinery or equipment, and elements that might obscure the line of sight of security cameras.
Where and what you’re watching for
On your site plan, be sure to indicate any particular areas that you want to watch. You should also make a list of any particular security concerns you want your cameras to address so that your security consultant can have a full picture of your camera needs.
Not sure where to place your cameras? Working with your site plan and knowing your areas of concern, our security experts can develop a comprehensive recommendation for your surveillance camera needs.
What kind of recording you need
Does your business operate 24/7? Are your security concerns employee-related or do you worry about after-hours break-ins? Do you want to monitor certain areas only when someone has entered the room? Knowing the answers to these questions can help your consultant determine the kind of recording you need. From 24/7 monitoring to motion recording, our team of professionals can help you determine the best solution to meet your needs.
Consider storage options
Do you need to store video for weeks, months, or years? Workers’ compensation, OSHA incidents, and theft or vandalism investigations are just a few reasons why your company may need store video long-term. Camera Security Now can offer an informed recommendation on the RAID storage solution that best meets your application and budgetary needs.
Special feature cameras
Now that you know where you need your security cameras and what issues you hope to address with them, it’s time to think about any special feature cameras that might help you achieve those goals. From license plate recognition and motorized zoom capabilities to fisheye and pan-tilt-zoom, cameras with special features can help you meet your security needs. Our security experts can help you decide if cameras with bonus features are right for your project.
If you have a worksite with expensive equipment or areas where employees frequently work with minimal supervision, remote viewing offers you the opportunity to keep a better eye on these areas. The ability to keep tabs on your business from your iPhone or tablet can give you the sense of security you need while ensuring the security of your workplace. Since remote viewing requires a high-quality and reliable internet connection, our security consultants can help you review your internet speed to establish the remote connection you need.
