Video Surveillance

CCTV security cameras come in many different styles and prices. Finding someone to sell you a security camera is not difficult. Finding someone who cares that you buy the right security camera, well, as they say in the commercials, that's priceless. At Arrow Gates and Security we set ourselves apart by taking time to consult with every customer to make sure they understand the pros and cons of the cameras they are considering for their project.

Does your facility have an existing, outdated tape based CCTV System?
Consider and easy upgrade to an Internet Accessible DVR.

Security Camera Tips: Apply Logic when picking cameras and lenses
Consider the following when choosing a CCTV surveillance camera:

  1. Sketch out a Floor Plan:
    Put in all camera locations.
    Consider the distance to your surveillance zone:Are you 5 feet or 15 feet away from your surveillance target area? It is best to locate your camera as close to the surveillance area first, then choose how much zoom you need.
  2. Field of view or area of surveillance:
    What lens you need depends what you want to see and how far away and how wide a viewing area. Wide angle and fisheye lenses are available.
  3. Resolution: Do you want to capture a persons face or a car license plate? Each situation and expectation will determine the location your security camera will have to be mounted in and the quality of camera you will require to get the desired resolution and image quality for your shot.
  4. Vandalism potential: Will your camera be subject to damage through vandalism or other environmental factors? Vandal resistant cameras are available along with a full range of housing to protect your security camera from any environment.
  5. Lighting: Is the space well lit or dimly lit. Are the lighting conditions simply unpredictable due to an outdoor influence? Are the lights turned off at night? Do you want to monitor the area with the lights turned off? Do you need infrared or low light cameras?
  6. Budget: Just like any technology, the more you spend, the better the system you get.
