Before You Buy. The Secret to Getting a Great Commercial Video Surveillance System.

Updated: Jan 6



A video surveillance system is more than just a component of your commercial security system. It is also a business tool and investment in your success. No matter the size of your business you will want to consider every aspect of it, from types of components, installation, cost, how you’ll use it, and more. Why? Because any one of the many facets of ownership can impact how well your system serves your purposes or doesn’t. Even the most expensive system can fail to meet your needs if its purpose is not pre-determined.


Work With A Reputable Security Company

While it is possible for just about anyone to set up some DIY cameras, truly effective commercial video surveillance is a science. It takes years to really know the technology and how it is most optimally implemented in-depth, and staying on top of industry advances is a full-time job.


When you work with a commercial physical security provider, you are relying on their knowledge and expertise to recommend solutions that meet your real needs, implement them rightly, and educate you, the owner, on its expanded functions. Their knowledge can ensure your video surveillance system becomes a true business asset, or a lack of knowledge can cost you.


Begin With System Purpose and Use

To attain the right video surveillance system, begin by determining what you would like to achieve before you start looking at technology. Is it increased security, greater organizational awareness, or improved productivity? A reputable professional will be able to help you identify your goals and make recommendations so that you do not overspend in areas that do not provide benefits.


Consider Your Future Goals

Security needs and security technologies evolve. One of the important ways you can make sure that you buy the right video commercial surveillance system is to consider both of those things now. A reputable professional will work with many manufacturers and can recommend ways to utilize existing system components and how to build a system that extends the use of new components. A great system will be scalable and offer third-party integrations. The longer (and wider) your system serves your needs, the lower the total cost of ownership.
