What you need to know for new CCTV installations

Cameras

  • What does each camera need to see? i.e. how far, how wide, how much detail?
  • What are the conditions the camera needs to work in? i.e. Day or night, infra-red, indoor or outdoor?
  • How will it be mounted, and are there any style considerations?

DVRs

  • How many cameras does it need to monitor, allowing for any expansion?
  • Do you need full D1 (576 line) recording on all channels?
  • How many days of recording at what quality needs to be stored?

Cabling

  • Do you want to run coaxial + power, or CAT5E/CAT6 with baluns?

Power

  • Will you supply power locally to each camera, or have one central supply?
  • What size of UPS do they need?
  • Do you want a plug pack, wall box (needs an electrician to wire), rack-mounted supply, or power supply + video balun box in one?

Networking & Remote Access

  • Does your customer want to view their cameras remotely?
