Installing a video surveillance system for a home is an excellent option for those who give priority to home security. More and more people, especially those living in single-family homes with several accesses, are convinced that disbursing some money in these systems is a profitable investment. They also find a large utility for those who spend long days away from home and want to be aware of how their loved ones are during their absence.
Below you can read the basic tips that you should keep in mind if you have decided to install a video surveillance system at home and do not want to turn to a professional company to do so.
- Evaluate, Plan And Compare Before Buying
It will be unhelpful that you acquire a video surveillance system in an establishment if you have not previously thought about what spaces you want to cover with the cameras, how many you need, what type of cameras you need, a plug (ปลั๊ก พ่วง, which is the term in Thai) if need be, and even what budget you are willing to spend.
- The Connection Between The Cameras And The Recorder
After deciding where you want to place the chambers (give preference to ceilings and high parts of the walls), make a mark to make the holes with the drill. You can screw the base of the cameras with the help of the studs. Most bases have a thread that is enough to tighten so that it is placed.
Next, the objective will be to connect the cameras with the area from which the devices will be controlled, something simple to do with one or several channels. Inside them, the cables will be connected with the recorder. Keep in mind that each recorder has two cables that you can hide, one for video input and another for current access.
- Use Professional Material For Installation And Operation
Although it may be tempting, using computers or household hard drives, among other devices, it is not advisable to install video surveillance equipment. It is advisable to use systems specifically designed for this purpose, like a Data’s power plug (ปลั๊กไฟ ดาต้า, which is the term in Thai) in the connection as they will have to be uninterrupted during all hours of the day. Remember that, in addition, acquiring professional equipment offers you a guarantee of operation and money back in the event of a malfunction.
