We have been involved with camera surveillance for years and have witnessed the evolution from large black and white cameras and VCR’s to micro size high definition color cameras with NVR’s or off-site storage.
Customization is essential because each “field of view” has different imaging characteristics – wide angle, long-range, low light, direct sun, high resolution, etc. A typical four-camera system will often require two or even three different style cameras. Each system will have different storage needs that are determined by camera resolution, the number of cameras installed, and the number of days the recording is to be stored. NVR’s are available with a variety of different size hard-drives and off-site Cloud storage is also available to accommodate the storage needs of our customers. Recordings can easily be copied to a thumb drive or CD as needed.
We’ve all seen the blurry video picture in the news of a perpetrator with the newscaster asking us to help identify the person. Those images are grainy and pixelated. Quality matters with a surveillance/camera system. Central Security uses professional grade cameras that are installed by professionally trained technicians. A system that does not have a clear picture to assist in identification can be very frustrating and of no value. If you are going to invest your hard earned money in surveillance be sure to check into the quality of the cameras being installed and make sure that the system is designed to give you the coverage you desire. Camera systems are more affordable than ever before, please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We love meeting people in our communities and provide free estimates.
The initial cost for Wifi Cameras is lower than purchasing an NVR system. However, there is a monthly fee to view and save your images “off-site”. We offer this because it is a unique way to put cameras into smaller businesses and homes without the large initial cost generally associated with traditional surveillance systems. End-users can view activity at their home or business on smart phones, laptops, or tablets with a secure internet connection.
