It’s becoming increasingly common for businesses to install surveillance cameras on the premises for a variety of reasons, which range from monitoring the activities of employees to helping to prevent burglaries and intrusions. Regardless of the reason, there’s no doubt that a surveillance camera is one of the most important pieces of security system equipment that a business owner can utilize to remain safe and secure.

The security professionals at, a site providing security system reviews of the best security system companies, created a list of tips for business owners to keep in mind before selecting a surveillance system.

1.    One of the first considerations to keep in mind before choosing surveillance cameras for use in a business is to determine whether the equipment will be used indoors or outdoors. For cameras that are going to be used outdoors, they’ll need to be water and weather-proof, and come with added features such as dust-proof housing.

2.    Another important consideration for business owners is to look at the security system equipment costs. Surveillance systems can range in price a great deal—from systems that are very intricate and expensive, to more basic surveillance systems that can be installed by the business owner within a matter of minutes.

3.    Consider the time of day that the cameras will be primarily used to record. If the cameras are mainly for use to record the activities of employees during the day, a basic camera will do the job, but if the cameras are to watch the premises during the night hours, it may be necessary to select a camera with infrared capabilities to record in the dark. There are also a number of cameras that offer the option to record in both the daylight and at night.

4.    Image quality is a key consideration in the selection of surveillance equipment. If the business owner wants to record highly-detailed images or in difficult lighting situations, a camera with a higher resolution will probably be the best suited for the job. If a surveillance system is used for something as simple as watching customers enter a business, a lower resolution camera can be adequate.

5.    Look at the recording capacity of the surveillance system prior to making a purchase. Depending on the amount of time that the camera system will spend recording, and the amount of time the business owner would like to keep that footage stored, a camera system with higher memory capabilities may be needed. This is a key determining factor in the hard drive size of the surveillance system selected.
