There are numerous reasons for installing a video surveillance system. You may be having your own business and so there will be need to monitor the employees as well as cash registers. Then you may need to monitor your inventory or make advance plans by getting the customer preferences and shopping habits. If you need one for your home then you may perhaps wish to monitor visitors and give protection for your spouse and children. Above all you may wish to notify the police and hand over the recordings of your camera so that they may identify the culprits easily.

Installing a surveillance system

You may need to know your actual requirement before going for the purchase of a surveillance camera. You may need to know the reason as to why you are interested in installing a camera. If so, then you need to ascertain whether the camera is for indoors or outdoors. It is generally seen that surveillance cameras for outdoor purpose may serve for the indoors while those of indoors do not work well outside.

Then you need to ascertain as to how much you are ready to spend. It would be wise to know that indoor cameras are slightly cheaper than outdoors ones as the latter would need extra protection like being vandal proof or can withstand high impacts. Again, there is no need for installing a network of cameras in and around your home or business if your idea is to monitor only a particular area. Larger numbers would obviously mean more cost.  

Technology factor

If you want to know as to the best technology while choosing your surveillance cameras then there are both Analog HD system and IP system for you to choose. Both have their own pros and cons although the IP system can be a standalone type with its own web server to process the video stream. In the case of Analog HD the same has been in use for ages and the system may offer you lesser options as you may not be able to integrate the same with other systems.

Last, but not the least, there is an extra investment you may need to make while opting for any hidden camera surveillance system. This is usually not talked about and that is whichever system you adopt you may need to have a power back up battery system on the side.
