Camera types

With many options for camera types available, you’ll want to do some research to get a basic understanding of the type of cameras you may be interested in. If you’re monitoring a lot of vehicle traffic on your property, you may be interested in cameras that offer license plate recognition or motorized zoom capabilities. For traditional retail operations, fisheye and pan-tilt-zoom cameras are always a popular choice.

Monitoring considerations

Do you need 24/7 monitoring of your entire operation? Do you have rooms or areas that only need to be monitored when someone enters them? We offer 24/7 monitoring and motion recording options to help fit your business needs.

Viewing security cameras on smartphone

For construction sites with expensive equipment where employees may frequently work with little supervision, remote viewing gives you the opportunity to keep an eye on the security of these sites from your mobile device or while sitting at your desktop. 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.

Storage options

Does your industry have specific requirements for surveillance video storage? Storage requirements can vary depending on your business functions, the types of products you sell, the state you operate in, industry regulations, and your insurance company requirements – with 30 to 90 days being fairly standard. Some industries may require as much as one full year of general storage and up to five or more years retention of specific security incidents.

RAID Storage solution

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.


For everyday needs, DVRs and NVRs are an excellent option for high-capacity storage options. External hard drives provide simple backup options for your video storage that can be kept offsite, ensuring that your business is covered in the event of a system failure or natural disaster.
