7 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing CCTV For Office

CCTV is not only effective but also inexpensive way of keeping your office property safe. To get the device properly running, it is important to choose the right company to sell and then install the gadget for you. If you just search on the internet for CCTV companies in Singapore, you will be amazed by the number of companies that will show up. This makes the process of choosing the best installation company even more difficult. In choosing a company to do the installation for their offices, many Singaporeans are likely to make some costly mistakes. This articles highlights the seven costly mistakes that you need to stay away from when choosing a good CCTV installation company.

7 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing CCTV For Office

1. Choosing an installer based entirely on price

While many business owners would welcome an opportunity to cut on cost, CCTV is not an area to try to save. This is the security of your company and you should never compromise on it. Remember that you get what you pay for. If you choose a company that charges a lower price, be ready to accept their low quality work. There is always a reason why some people charge lower prices than others. One could be that they only sell the gadgets to you which mean you will spend again on hiring someone to install it for you. At the end of the day, you will realize that it is even more expensive than you thought.

2. Hiring the first company you come across

This is another mistake that you need to avoid when looking for a good cctv company. Never hire the first company that you meet. It is much better to check at least three companies and compare the services they offer in their packages and also price. If you choose the first company you come across, you may not necessarily get the best one. But by evaluating three or more companies, you get to choose the best of the pack.

3. Choosing a company that is located overseas

The internet has made research easier these days. One just searches on the internet and there they have a good looking company. In that excitement, people settle for companies that are not necessarily based in Singapore. You cannot expect them to travel all the way they are in just to come and install the cctv cameras for you. What they will do is that they will subcontract a local company to do the installation for your office. This will be unnecessarily expensive, and also, the local company they choose may not be as good as you want. Just focus on a good local company.

4. Purchasing one-size-fits-all system

It is common for many business owners in Singapore to buy one complete set. But the disadvantage of this is that businesses tend to have very unique needs. What worked for one business may not necessarily work for you also. For this reason, it is very important that you select cctv system which are highly customized for the needs of your business.

5. Buying cameras that have fixed camera lenses

These cameras are only able to focus on images that are located within a certain distance. Therefore, if intruders are too near or close to the office, the camera won’t be of much use. The cctv camera you install in the office should be able to focus on all kinds of objects, be they near or far. This way, it offers complete deterrent against all manner of intruders.

6. Purchasing VCR and not DVR

VCR technologies are a thing of the past. Not only do they have too many moving parts, but also wear out quite easily. In case you intend to record footages that your camera will capture, it is important to select Digital Video Recorders (DVRs). When buying DVRs, it is important to ensure that the type that you have bought can accommodate the quantity of cameras that you have installed.


7. Overlooking lighting

It is wrong to buy these cameras without considering lighting. There are companies that offer sensor activated lighting which allows the cameras to record footages should the sensor be alerted by an intruder.

Conclusion

These are just some of the mistakes that buyers of office cctv cameras make. With the full knowledge of such mistakes, it is unlikely that you can fall in similar trap.
