CCTV Installation – Video Surveillance NY

Break-ins and employee theft “shrinkage” can be a big financial burden for NYC retail businesses and homeowners. Security or surveillance camera systems for buildings and commercial sites are available as standalone or multiple indoor or outdoor camera systems that can be recorded locally or in the cloud. 

Surveillance Systems

How Does Video Surveillance Work?

Business-grade video surveillance is usually either hardwired to a digital video recorder (DVR) or a network digital recorder (NVR); an analog closed-circuit television (CCTV); or in IP HD video camera technology where digital cameras connect via Cat5 (Networking) Cable and wireless cloud signals that records and displays on centralized monitors for viewing.

Our security services will support most building infrastructure as well as network requirements.

Analog and IP Camera Systems

The Analog cameras system is a cost-effective solution compared to the IP system. It is built on older technology and uses coaxial cable to transfer the image from the camera to the Digital Video Recorder. The DVR translates the image from an analog signal to a digital signal and then records it. Even though today’s Analog cameras can reach some very nice resolutions, this technology is limited and offers a lower quality video. Analog systems are also less securedl.

The IP cameras system works on a more advanced technology that translates to a high-quality image and video and increased security. The camera converts the video into a digital signal using advanced coding protocols and sends it to the Network Video Recorder using a network cable (Cat5/6). The data is then decoded and recorded on the NVR’s hard drive. Each camera on the system is protected from hacking and holds a locking mechanism in case of an unauthorized hacking attempt.
Both systems are accessible from remote locations through the web or a smartphone’s App (both iPhone and Android) as long as the DVR/NVR is connected to the internet, though some devices support HD live streaming and some don’t.

Besides the cost and the quality, there are a few other factors to consider when inquiring about a CCTV system, for example:
Size of Hard Drive or how long do we want the DVR to record?

  • Scalability, or would we add more cameras in the future?
  • Centralization of different locations through one software
  • Installation field limits
  • And many more

On-Site Storage and Cloud Storage

Most CCTV systems consist of cameras and recording devices. This setup is known as On-Site storage or On-Site recording. The advantages of this setup are maximal recording quality and fast full control over system functions. The downsides of this setup from a security perspective is that if the device is stolen – all the video is lost. For most of our clients, this setup is enough.

In the past few years, Cloud technology has come a long way and few companies today offer streaming devices that would record the video of the IP cameras directly in the cloud. Even though this service does not come cheap (starting at 15$ per cam/month for 1 month of recording storage), it has the obvious advantage of protecting your video recordings from theft. The recordings are accessible from anywhere and anytime through the internet and are of good quality (though not maximal).

CCTV Installation Advantages

Consider the following advantages provided by CCTV installation:

  • Deters crime, theft, and break-ins
  • Increases perimeter or localized security
  • Discourages vandals, trespassers, and illegal behavior
  • Captures visual evidence – a valuable investigative tool
  • Promotes safety
  • Improves employee productivity
  • Prevents dishonest premises liability claims
  • Monitors visitor entry and exit
  • Helps personnel maintain crowd control
  • Enhances building or restricted area security

Video Surveillance systems are an integral part of any New York City building/store/organization’s security system. Closed Circuit Cameras let you monitor sensitive and critical locations around your facility, prevent crime or merchandise loss, record and report employees’ or tenants’ fraudulent activity and give you peace of mind knowing you can view and monitor your assets from wherever you are at any time.
