3 Common Mistakes When Integrating a Camera System


When dealing with CCTV security systems, many things can go wrong if you don’t do your research. This article will outline the 3 most common mistakes and misconceptions I tend to encounter.

  • No wires = more problems: The many issues that surround wireless cameras more often than not outweigh its ease of use. First off, wireless cameras are not truly wireless. Your cameras will still need some kind of power source to connect to. Unless your camera is far from your application, wired might just be the way to go. The next issue that comes up with wireless is the point to point. If there is anything that could be block your wireless adapters (trees, buildings, etc) then you can run into signal issues as well. All in all, the safe and cost effective approach to this point is usually the way to go.
  • Power distribution: Another common issue that I run into is when people tell me that their infrared doesn’t work, or that their cameras don’t work at night. Also, some users will say that one camera works, and the same camera on the other end doesn’t. This isn’t a problem with the camera so much as it a problem with the power supply to the camera. Don’t take the cheap approach on power supplies and skimp out on the wattage. Also, remember that infrared cameras will go through more power at night.
  • The right camera for the right job: No single camera application is the same. That means that you’re going to want the right camera for your home or business. It’s very important to gather all the information possible when doing your due diligence on cameras. Some questions that you have to ask yourself are…”Will my camera need to be weather/vandal proof?”  ”How far away does my camera need to be able to see?”  ”Do I want my camera to be noticeable, aesthetically pleasing, or something hidden and stealth?”  Also, “Which style am I looking for: box style, dome, or bullet?”  With the a truly helpful site, everything from temperature range, viewing angles, resolution quality etc, is readily available at your fingertips.

At the end of the day, it is very important to do your homework before implementing a camera solution.
