Gas Station Security Camera Systems

In today’s times almost all gas stations have security cameras, but most of these gas stations have been using the same security camera solution for years now. Many stations still use old tape based security system and others just use a monitor with no recording device at all.

A common occurrence we see is owners do not want to spend the extra money on new equipment because they think their old equipment suits the job just fine. Well an easy cost saving solution that many people do not ever look at is that in most instances you can use your old security camera wires. Your CCTV security cameras are most likely using is a common coax cable still used today. This allows a great deal of the old infrastructure and sometimes the cameras themselves to be easily incorporated into a new PC Based DVR security system. Depending on the size of the facility you can save easily up to 30% on your total cost by using the old wires.

A new Gas Station Security Camera System can be a great way to cut down on stolen merchandise inside and outside of the store, it can also help deter and prosecute drive-offs. A great tool for store owners is the ability to remotely view your security cameras via a live feed across the internet and even playback previously recorded incidents.
