Easy Ways to Make Your Video Surveillance More Efficient

Any video camera is better than none. But if you’ve already got your video surveillance system up and running, you should always be on the lookout for ways to make it even more efficient.

Video surveillance for your business is a security must-have.  It’s proven to make a difference in crime statistics, which will inevitably save you time and money down the road.  Any video camera is better than none.  But if you’ve already got your video surveillance system up and running, you should always be on the lookout for ways to make it even more efficient.  Protecting your business is a top priority, so you don’t want to slack in any area.  Here are some simple ways to help your surveillance work better, faster, and longer.

Router Location

Wireless cameras require a router, which means that the router shouldn’t be too far from the camera itself.  Think about how Wi-Fi works; once you venture out of a certain range from the router, Wi-Fi slows down, and then goes out of range entirely.  So, it only follows that your wireless camera needs to be close to its router in order to work at its peak efficiency.  Make sure that your router is as close as possible, and your camera’s efficiency should improve.

Range

If you’re finding that your signal isn’t spreading to a large enough area, there are ways to improve it.  You can install an antenna, which will extend the area that the router covers.  The only catch is that the antenna must be at the same frequency as the camera; otherwise, it won’t work.  The size, cost, and strength all play a part in just how large you can make your range.  The bigger the range, the more efficient your video surveillance is.

Choose the Best Angle

Angle is everything.  When you install a surveillance system, your video cameras should, ideally, be able to spot every corner of your business.  That way, you won’t be missing any blind spots which criminals could take advantage of.  Even if you don’t possess a huge number of cameras, it’s possible to position them in a way that optimizes your view.  Think long and hard about where you want your cameras to be positioned; this will heavily increase efficiency.
