Selecting the right video surveillance system is an important task. Ensuring the system you select is not only a good video surveillance system but that it will meet your needs and actually help you protect your Abilene TX property is critical.  Enhancing your security system by adding a video surveillance system will provide you with alerts if an intruder enters your property without authorization, will allow you to continuously monitor the activities on and around you property to detect unusual, unsafe or unauthorized activities and will provide you with the evidence necessary to ensure prosecution of any criminals that threaten the safety of yourself, your family, your employees, your customers or your property.

A video surveillance system is an investment in your safety

Installing a video surveillance system as part of your security system is a true investment in safety as well as an investment of you hard earned money.  It is important to determine your security needs before you make an investment in a video surveillance system.  Determine how many security cameras you might need, determine the appropriate locations for security cameras, select the type of security cameras that will provide you the appropriate level of quality and clarity and determine how the system will be monitored.

Security camera placement

The size of your Abilene TX property, the number of entry points and the number of hidden or poorly lit areas around your property will determine the number of security cameras you need to adequately and completely protect your property.  Once you have an idea of how many security cameras you might need, placement of those cameras is the next task.  Ensure some of your security cameras are readily and easily visible from outside of your property.  This placement is critical to providing a visual deterrent to potential intruders.  The last thing such criminals want is to be seen or recorded in the act.  Combine visible security cameras with hidden cameras so that even the most stealthy intruder does not go undetected.  Place cameras at different angles to ensure those discrete, poorly lit hiding places around and on your property are adequately monitored. Ensure every access point to your property is captured whether it be doors, windows, gates, or garage doors especially those that are hidden from direct line of sight. A sketch of your property will help you layout your security camera placement to ensure adequate coverage.

Security camera options

Video quality depends on the specific security camera capability. Be sure to choose security cameras that provide sufficient quality and clarity to provide the level of detail needed.  High quality video feed can be extremely important if the case arises where prosecution becomes necessary.

Video surveillance system monitoring

Typically a DVR is incorporated into your video surveillance system to allow you to record the video feed from your video surveillance system.  However, all the video feed in the world won’t help if no one watches it.  A better solution is to  employ a continuous monitoring service that will not only detect unusual, unsafe or unauthorized activities on your property but can also initiate immediate response from Abilene TX authorities when necessary.
