What about other brands of systems?
While we have used and installed nearly every brand of security camera system out there such as Swann, Q-See, Lorex, Night Owl and Amcrest… we prefer to build our own. These consumer brand systems may be less expensive in some cases, however they have major disadvantages and security concerns:
- These systems have a proprietary design and generally only work with their cameras and DVR/NVRs which means you will either pay much higher replacement or add-on camera prices IF they are even still available when you need them! We have had home owners contact us that bought a house that has cameras but the home owner kept the DVR. Sure enough the Lorex cameras were proprietary and would only work with a NVR that was no longer available even though the system was only 2 years old!!
- MAJOR SECURITY FLAW: Hard-coded password exposes up to 46,000 video surveillance DVRs to hacking | CSO Online – we have replaced DVR systems from both Swann and Lorex that have these vulnerabilities! BEWARE: If you have one of these systems you can be hacked! REPLACE THEM ASAP! I have 2 of these systems if you would like to see the issue for yourself!
Top 5 Things to Consider when Picking a CLEAR IT SECURITY Video Surveillance Camera System in Fort Worth and Dallas surrounding areas:
#1. Number of cameras needed and where to mount them for areas to be covered
Maybe have a really small area you are concerned about and 4 or less cameras would give you the coverage you need. Perhaps you really need 8 or more. While we don’t need to know exactly where you want the camera installed it is a good idea to consider camera placement. Where you may have them installed could mean needing additional cameras for the coverage desired. Need help with where? No problem — we have you covered! Contact us for a free consultation!
#2. Picture quality desired
Are your cameras going to be far away from the actual subjects? Do you really need to be able to read license plates? Most people only need 720p as the picture is still HD and can provide excellent facial details. Check out the following license plate comparisons:
#3 – How much recording storage space or time is needed
Most systems allow for 14 days or more of recording storage. If you need more than 30 days of storage a 2TB or larger drive may be required.
#4 – Where you want the DVR installed
Do you have a safe room or place where the DVR could be concealed? Is it near a TV or do you need a monitor for viewing? Is it near the internet router? DVRs require a HDMI or VGA connection for local viewing. A hardwired RJ45 / CAT5/6 ethernet connection is also required to your internet router.
#5 – Do you think adding additional cameras in the future is a possibility?
If yes, make sure to get a DVR that has additional channels for expansion.
The brand of camera DVR system used isn’t nearly as important as the capabilities and security of the Video Surveillance Camera Systems in Fort Worth. The software used on most all DVRs are the same with vendors only customizing the layout and logo giving them a similar yet different look and feel.
