It can also be used to turn on and off your surveillance system when you, employees or loved ones leave or enter the virtual boundaries. You can find out more about this feature by clicking the button below and “Drop Us a Line”.

That is a great question! If you’re thinking of installing surveillance cameras on your private property, it’s usually okay as long as you’re not invading anyone’s privacy. When it comes to your home, your business and public spaces, keep in mind that laws can differ depending on where you plan on installing the surveillance system, so it’s a good idea to check your local regulations first. If you would like know your particular regulatory guidelines please feel free to contact us!

That simple sounding question has a myriad of elements and variables to it. Here is a brief synopsis:

Surveillance camera systems generally come with a certain amount of storage space. The length of time that footage can be saved for depends on how much storage capacity your system will have, the quality the recordings are being saved in and the number of cameras that are storing data. Another factor in regards to storage of recordings, is your data being recorded 24/7/365, is your data only being recorded at certain times of the day or when your cameras are motion triggered. Recording scenarios can also be  any combination of those elements. Of course, the larger your storage capacity, the more data you will be able to retain and for longer periods of time. 

Video compression has come a long way, but video is still a storage hog, especially when recording at higher resolutions like 4K.

In addition to storage capacity, the length of time that footage is kept can also depend on the specific settings of the system. Your system may allow you to adjust how long footage is stored before it’s overwritten, giving you more control over how much data you keep.

It’s also worth noting that some surveillance systems use cloud storage to save footage, which can offer a virtually unlimited amount of storage space. In these cases, the length of time that footage is kept can be much longer than systems that rely on physical storage.

Regardless of the system you plan to use, again, it’s important to be aware of local laws and regulations around data retention and privacy, as these can vary depending on the location you plan to have your system installed.

Finally, an easy question!  If that is one of the qualities you are looking for in your surveillance system, the answer is YES! As long as your sending component has an internet connection, the surveillance systems can send you alerts when they detect motion? That’s right! You can set up your system to send notifications directly to your email or even to your phone as an alert on an app or text message. That way, you can stay in the loop about any activity happening on your property in real-time.

Hey, you know that some businesses use surveillance cameras to keep an eye on their employees. There are numerous reasons why you should also. Two or three reasons just popped into your head.

Picking out your perfect surveillance system can be tricky, it all depends on your requirements, necessities and exigencies.

Factors like the size and layout of the space you wish to monitor, the level of security you’re looking for, and your budget all play a role in finding the right fit. That’s why it’s a great idea to talk to a reliable surveillance installation company.
