Why you need to have your CCTV cameras professionally installed

Nowadays, it’s easy to purchase CCTV cameras from online suppliers. However, not all suppliers offer HD CCTV installation. Unfortunately, trying to install CCTV cameras yourself isn’t always wise. That’s why we believe that having your HD CCTV cameras installed by experienced professionals is absolutely essential. There are three main advantages associated with professional installation. In today’s blog entry, we’ll take a close look at these so you can make an informed decision about whether you need to have your new CCTV cameras installed by experts. You might be surprised by how much difference professional installation can make to your business’s CCTV security system.

1. Improved coverage

CCTV installation experts know exactly where to place cameras in order to ensure that they can see as much of your site or premises as possible. If you attempt to install your new CCTV cameras yourself, you may accidentally position them in a way that limits their field of vision. This isn’t something you should feel embarrassed about: positioning CCTV cameras can be tricky, so it’s usually best to let the experts do it.

2. More stable cameras

CCTV cameras need to be installed very securely, as they might break if they fall off the surface where they have been installed. Unfortunately, if you’re not used to fitting CCTV cameras, it’s very easy to install them insecurely. In contrast, professionally installed cameras are usually very stable and unlikely to fall off and become damaged.

3. Easier to use CCTV system

If you install CCTV cameras yourself, you’ll have to link them up to your computer or television so that you can watch their footage and ensure that it is saved to a device of your choice. If you have your CCTV cameras installed professionally, however, the installation experts will ensure that they are fully connected and ready to use, saving you a lot of time and effort.

If you run a start-up or SME, you may be tempted to try and save money by installing your own CCTV cameras. However, it’s always best to trust the professionals with this delicate task. Here at I-HT, we don’t just supply cameras, we also install them. Contact us today for more information.
