  • Does having security cameras lower business insurance?
    Business owners can save money and improve their peace of mind by installing a CCTV surveillance system. Not only will it discourage break-ins and theft, but it can decrease the amount you pay in business insurance, and will protect businesses from false liability claims.
  • How long can security cameras hold footage?
    Generally, the length of time video footage is saved depends on the number of cameras, video resolution, frame-rates, and amount of motion captured in the camera view. That said, we can meet any storage space requirements that you may need by increasing the Hard Drive size, understanding that some businesses and financial institutions need a large amount of storage capacity.
  • Is it better to have wired or wireless security cameras?
    Wired cameras require more set-up time and effort but offer greater reliability. Wired cameras are NOT reliant on the strength of your WiFi signal and do not require inconvenient batteries. Wireless security cameras are generally less expensive and they set up quickly, but network failure happen daily and on-site tampering is common.
