I am looking for a video surveillance system for my business but I don't need constant real time coverage. What is available?
Video surveillance systems (aka CCTV systems) are available in simple record-and-store models as well as more sophisticated real-time monitoring models. If your needs are simple – for example if you only want to keep tabs on your premises outside of business hours – you can find a system that films and records locations you choose to cover for a predetermined period of time. With an analog systems you can simply record over the previous night’s coverage although a digital system will be more effective and durable. In any case you should approach CCTV suppliers and explain exactly what kind of coverage you’re looking for and they will propose a solution. You can compare their offers side by side and choose the most appropriate system for your business.
