Gas Station Security Camera Systems

Security Camera Tips and Benefits for Gas Stations

Gas Station Security CamerasSecurity Cameras at Gas Stations…not a new concept , yet one you should consider before oil goes back to $140 a barrel.

Most gas stations across the country have been using one form or another of security cameras for years. Many stations still have their original taped-based security system while others still use just a monitor with no recording device at all.

One important thing these holdouts from the last century might want to consider is that even without a modern DVR or a recording device the wire that the 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.

If your Gas Station Security Camera System has been installed for so long that you have not quite caught the significance of this, let me remind you that, depending on how many cameras you have installed and how large your facility, the cost of installing the wiring for the cameras could have easily been over 30% of the total cost of your security system. Being able to use the existing wire is then a great savings for those looking to upgrade.

Miami Security Cameras

Miami Florida Security Cameras
This month we are doing a special feature on security cameras in the city of Miami, Florida. CCTV Security Camera’s are a common site in Florida’s largest city Miami. With a population estimated to be over 400,000 and a surrounding metropolitan area of 5.5 million people it is easy to see why Miami is one of the nation’s fastest growing cities.

Along with the boom in the population Miami is also seeing a great increase in development and construction of sky rise building of 400 feet and higher. Miami is actually third in the US for high rise developments. The boom has also brought along with it a high demand for Security Cameras for traditional office space. Security Cameras play a vital role in keeping an office safe and secure. It is also a great utility for staff to watch over their employees.
