Get a Good Face Shot

Use Higher quality cameras at entry areas Doors, gates and other entry areas need a good quality, high resolution camera to record a good 'face shot.' The video from this camera should be considered a highly valuable since it can be used as evidence in identifying a person in a court of law.
Wide Angle Cameras for large surveillance areas
Once you can get a good shot of a persons face, you should use a wider angle camera lens for the interior surveillance spaces of the building. Using color cameras inside your building is a good idea because you can readily identify a person by the clothes they are wearing.

Protect your employees and your Profits

Fact: Robberies are less frequent when video cameras are in conspicuous places and proper signage is displayed on entry doors and walls. Once a potential robber or thief sees that your place is under surveillance, they don't try anything.

Why buy our CCTV Security Camera DVR Surveillance System?

"With all the DVRs on the market, why not just buy the cheapest thing I can find. They are all the same right?- That is the most common question we get around here," said Bill Schiering of Camera Security Now.

All CCTV Digital Video Recorders are Not Created Equally

DVRs are actually computers. They contain processors, memory and hard drives. All dvrs operate on some type of operating system like Microsoft Windows XP Professional. Cheaper units use cheaper operating systems such as embedded XP and Linux.

Some have more storage through the use of better software compression algorithms and larger physical hard drive storage space.

Functionally is the key limitation of cheaper CCTV DVRs. As you go down the evolutionary DVR food chain, fewer and fewer functions are available. Today's top CCTV DVRs can allow users to view video at any internet connected location, including wireless! Yes, you can watch your cameras from Starbucks!

Component quality also comes into play. Cheaper units use cheaper parts like motherboards, video cards and processors. Do you really want your business to ride on the cheapest computer money can buy? You get what you pay for.

Customer service should also come into play. Do the people answer the phone? Are they knowledgeable about the product? When you call back during regular business hours, do you get a real person or a recording?

Lastly, consider the products that other security camera stores are selling in their estores. Do they have 1000s of incompatible products? Most do, we don't. We only have the good stuff we know about.

Why buy our CCTV Security Camera DVR Surveillance System? Because we use top quality components, great compression utility, loads of hard drive video storage, we answer the phone, email and fax, we are knowledgeable about our product and we have installers nationwide or you can do it yourself.

Camera Security Now builds CCTV Security Camera DVR Surveillance Systems based on the following top technologies:

CCTV DVR - Saving Face for Less!

CCTV DVR is the next generation for camera surveillance. The prior technology was tape based surveillance systems. The future technology will be IP based systems, but they are not ready for prime time. CCTV DVR offer the best, most cost effective solution to any video surveillance need. Since up to 16 cameras and be broadcasted on a single IP address, DVRs offer an easier solution to configure and manage and view video from multiple locations. Even some of the lower cost models are feature rich and court room legal! But watch out, don't get stuck with inflexible embedded systems at rock bottom prices. Keep in mind, the quality of evidence is the best way to save face.

Thats why I recommend GeoVision CCTV-DVRs. With full windows compliance you can be assured that any recorded video can be widely destributed to anyone with a pc.
