Wireless Video Surveillance Systems 2019

Wireless video surveillance systems are affordably priced these days. Technology has gotten smaller and lighter, as well as much less expensive. This means that the average homeowner or small business owner can have one of these security systems installed in order to watch everything that goes on in their home or office.

Whether you want to keep an eye on your teenagers when you’re at work or want a video record in case of a burglary or other emergency, you need to choose from among the best home video surveillance systems out there.

Determine Your Needs

Before you buy a Hikvision wireless video surveillance system, you first need to examine your needs. Where do you plan on installing the cameras? Which views need to be covered? How many cameras do you need?

A good rule of thumb is to have at least one camera covering each entry point – in this case, door – to your home. Your front door, back door, and, if you have an attached garage, the man door leading to your home from the garage, should all have at least one camera trained on them.

This way, if someone tried to break in, you’ll have footage that you can give to the authorities. It’s also a good idea to have a camera facing any expensive items in your home, such as your television set and computer since those are items that are easily stolen.

However, you don’t need to stop there. If you want to keep an eye on your kids while you’re at work, then you’ll need to have a video surveillance camera or two installed indoors as well. Consider putting them where the kids tend to congregate, such as the living room and the basement. The kitchen is a good place to put a camera as well.

If you’re looking for a wireless home video surveillance system for your small business, then the same reasoning applies. You need at least one camera for each entry point, such as the front and back door, as well as a camera or two within the building itself. If you have a small store, then you’ll want a camera in every aisle in order to help you identify shoplifters.

Even standard offices can use them to keep an eye on employees and supplies that are easily stolen. You should never take your business security for granted. With that said, it’s really your decision where you want the cameras to be placed. Spend some time thinking about it and examining the various angles. Then, once you know how many cameras you’ll need, it’s time to move on to the next step.

Find a Packaged Set

One of the best things about wireless video surveillance equipment is that it tends to come in packages. You’ll be able to find systems that come with a set amount of cameras, as well as an NVR, or network video recorder, that picks up footage from all of them. Since many of these cameras are small and connect wirelessly to the NVR, you won’t have to worry about stringing wires all over the place.

It also makes the cameras much easier to hide. You definitely want a packaged set of these cameras and an NVR so that you won’t have to worry about compatibility between them. Plus, they can all be installed at once, saving you time and money. Your entire system can be set up fairly quickly.

Do You Need Additional Monitoring?

Generally, wireless video surveillance systems come either with or without monitoring services. It’s always a good idea to have these monitoring services in place though, as they add an additional level of protection.

Some companies, such as us, Protective Security Services, offer monitoring as well. This is designed to help you should something go wrong while you’re out of the office or away from home. Break-ins can occur at any moment, but they do tend to happen when everything is dark and closed which is why you need to beef up your store's security. In worst case, if something happens, you’ll be alerted by your security company.

The authorities will be called as well. Not only does this monitoring give you peace of mind, but it might also help you save money on your home or business insurance. Just a small additional service fee can actually save you quite a bit, as far as insurance is concerned.
