Video Surveillance System Planning [Checklist] Posted on May 9, 2022 by

proper video surveillance system planning includes knowing what areas are best served by dome cameras

Video surveillance protects people and assets. Besides providing alerts, when the camera is located somewhere obvious it deters mischievous and criminal acts. Deployed covertly, it gathers evidence for the identification and prosecution of offenders.

Recent years have seen the prices of the actual camera fall while capabilities have grown, prompting many businesses and homeowners to consider upgrading or installing a surveillance system. However, a system that’s poorly designed or implemented won’t deliver the anticipated benefits, which is why proper video surveillance system planning is so important.

BEFORE YOU START

It’s impossible to plan a system without goals and objectives. Do you want to watch over an unattended outdoor area like a parking lot or loading bay? Do you need to see who’s entering a building lobby, or are you monitoring staff to keep them safe or detect unauthorized activities?

There are many reasons for installing a surveillance system and they determine how it will be configured.

VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS: RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL?

Video surveillance is often thought of as something for commercial premises, factories, and R&D labs, but residential use is growing. Residential systems aren’t usually as large or complex as those used commercially and probably won’t have security and/or IT infrastructure to build on, but the fundamentals are no different.

Accordingly, this checklist is intended for anyone planning a video surveillance system, whether commercial or residential. Where there are points of differentiation, these will be highlighted.

COMPREHENSIVE CHECKLIST FOR VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM PLANNING

1.Have you defined what you want to achieve?

Reasons for installing video surveillance include:

  • Getting notifications about callers or deliveries
  • Capturing evidence of unauthorized activities
  • Enabling live monitoring of remote locations

2. Are standard IP cameras enough or do you need smart cameras?

Once installed and programmed, traditional IP camera systems allow the end-user to view access points or specific areas, live, at any given time. They will also provide playback in order for you to review the footage later. Systems like these are often used for 24/7 monitoring of remote parking lots or other unattended areas.

Smart cameras provide intelligent video surveillance. They can be set up to send alerts based on when someone crosses a line, when a vehicle enters a specific place, or if it remains stationary too long.

3. Will a fixed camera suffice or do you need a PTZ camera?

A pan-tilt-zoom camera can track a moving target or person of interest. These were operated by someone viewing a monitor, but modern systems have intelligent capabilities that allow the automatic following.

4. Have you identified the areas to watch over?

Try to minimize the number of cameras needed. Use site layout or architectural drawings to determine locations where cameras have a good view of the areas they need to observe.

5. Should the system integrate with existing security capabilities?

Many businesses already have security solutions that include cards or other access systems. Integrating video surveillance with these is more convenient than implementing an entirely new system and may also be more robust.

6. Are there other safety systems to integrate with?

Smoke alarms are installed in most commercial and residential buildings. Integrating these with a video surveillance system can extend their capabilities by enabling alerts over cellular networks or through the internet.

7. Is there an existing network infrastructure?

Modern “IP” security cameras are connected using Ethernet network cabling. In most cases, this infrastructure can also supply power to the cameras. Exceptions are PTZ cameras and those with integrated or attached lights.

A large commercial installation may need network switches and even one or more intermediate distribution frames to channel feeds from multiple cameras into a server. These may already be present but check the bandwidth available and needed.

Residential systems rarely have a wired network to build on but can use existing Wi-Fi or a separate wireless network. Alternatively, it may be necessary to run wires to the various cameras.

8. Can you define the resolutions and frame rates needed?

The answer to this question determines the amount of video storage needed. It also ties back to the number of cameras, the size of the areas being protected, and your goals for the system.

If you only want notifications of vehicle arrivals, low resolution is probably sufficient, and if they are stopped at a gate or barrier a low frame rate will be enough. If you need to read the license plates, (or want license plate recognition software to do so,) you will need more resolution. Similarly, if objects and people of interest will be on the move you’ll need higher frame rates.

A video surveillance specialist will be able to help with specific camera recommendations once you have an understanding of what you need.

9. Should the system be protected against attack?

There’s little value in a surveillance system that is easily disabled. Where possible, mount cameras out of reach and ensure cables are inaccessible. Dome cameras are more vandal/attack resistant, so plan on using these in areas with low ceilings. In addition, consider using a traditional security system to protect your investment in cameras and think about how to protect the power supply to your system.

10. Are you protected against power outages?

If you want the system to function during a power outage you’ll need an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). However, these can only supply power for a short period, so consider how much backup you need.

11. Can you quantify the data storage needed?

High-resolution video needs a lot of storage space. Fortunately, many modern cameras can perform event-based recording, meaning they only send video to your recording devices when something of interest is happening. This reduces the storage space needed, but you still need to define your expectations.

12. Have you reviewed the need for intelligent video analytics?

This refers both to cameras having the intelligence to send alerts only under certain conditions, and to technology to help with reviewing video recordings.

Modern systems include a range of tools to simplify and speed up searching, which can save hours of intensive screen-watching! At the top end, these video surveillance systems let the end-user search days of footage in seconds by searching for key indicators like the color of clothing or gender.

GET HELPFUL ADVICE FROM VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM EXPERTS

Maximizing the return on your investment in security cameras starts with careful video surveillance system planning. The checklist we’ve provided here will guide you through the points you need to consider, but it’s unlikely you’ll have all the answers you need. That’s why you should talk to someone with a wealth of experience, like the team at Security Alarm.

I called Security Alarm to check on cameras for outside since we had used them in our Ag business for years. The process to get lined up was simple and Larry was very thorough in explaining everything. They were out in just a few days to install them. Both guys were very friendly and professional. It didn't take long to install and I know they probably had wiring issues to deal with. They did a great job and the cameras show exactly where I wanted them. I am very pleased with the service and products installed.Thanks!

My husband and I had no clue what to get for a security system. We called Security Alarm, Tom came out and looked and within just a few minutes of him talking with us he knew exactly what we needed. We went over a few different options and plans and figured out what we wanted. By the time he left we knew we had made the best choice by going with Security Alarm. They truly believe in what they do and I’m happy to be a customer. I haven’t had any trouble with anything, but the times I’ve talked to people on the phone they’ve been super nice and very helpful. I love the fact that a real person answers the phone and I don’t have to go through anything automated. I highly recommend Security Alarm and am very pleased with our system!

We first met with Larry O. when he came out to discuss purchasing their system. He explained the system throughly to us. When the time came for the install Daniel D. and Mark H. installed the wiring and cameras. They set everything up and wired the system to a monitor. They went through the install app on our smartphones with us also. They were very professional, knowledgeable and informative with the way they conducted themselves. They were attentive to detail and made sure everything, (furniture, etc.) was put back the way they found it. Daniel D. came back the next day to follow up with us concerning any questions we may have had. Good experience with this Company as of this writing.

Larry the Salesperson was knowledgeable, and explained products well. He informed of different options and choices for our situation.Next came the installers and they were also kind, considerate and got their work done with as little bother as possible. They explained how the system works etc. and even though it seemed like a lot to remember we have had no problems in working it and it is nice to know if we do something wrong or have a problem, they will call us to make sure before it goes out as a false alarm. We are enjoying the security it gives.

We have been customers of Security Alarm for 8 years at our current home. The peace of mind and ease of use are priceless. So much so that we are installing their system with some added features to our new home.We have always found every employee of this company to be helpful & straight forward.On the occasions that we have accidentally set off our alarm, it has been less than a minute before the monitoring center are calling to check in.If you are in the market for a security system, we highly recommend you give Security Alarm the opportunity to explain their system to you.

The Marion office was very helpful in contacting someone for us when we were looking for information on Security Alarm systems. Larry was an easy person to talk to and seemed knowledgeable about the system. He even brought up points that we had not thought about. Larry was more than agreeable to coming back and going over what we had decided on in our previous meeting. The installation guys were respectful, clean and also very helpful. If we have any problems, everyone let us know that all we needed to do was call and someone would help us. We would definitely recommend Security Alarm as a company to consider for security services.

All the new owners will have to do is call for monthly monitoring.

I have been a customer of Security Alarm for several years. They installed and have maintained a burglar alarm at our residence and farm buildings. In mid-August, 2019, we had inside, electronic damage due to a lightning strike. Even with the difficulties of diagnosing/repairing our burglar alarm after lightning damage, Security Alarm stayed with the job to see the project through. When repair difficulties arose, Security Alarm sent their most-experienced alarm technician at no charge to figure out what was still wrong. After a very long Friday, Jim found the problem, made the repair, programmed the main panel, and tested every component of the alarm system. Now, everything is working correctly. I really appreciated Security Alarm's fair handling of the repair and their honesty exemplified through not charging me for unproductive time when, for whatever reason, they were not able to correctly diagnose the problem (the problem was ultimately a defective new, out-of-the-box part that they replaced). They listened to my concerns and acted accordingly.

I would like to say something about the Security Alarm Corporation and their employees, the techs, the office personnel, the sales people. They have all been very helpful when I have had a question concerning my system, Someone is always there to answer my question and get me headed in the right direction to correct a problem which in almost all cases, it was me that created a problem, whether not entering the correct information or just not understanding the procedure to activate or deactivate my system. The system operates as it should and does so in seconds if alarm is activated.If you are looking for a good security system, Security Alarm Corporation is the place to go.

The initial visit with Larry the sales rep- he went over everything in detail and walked throughout my house to point out what could be used where (glass breaking vs. window alarm) They scheduled install immediately (other local company took over 2 weeks to scheduled for my grandma's house) The installers were very professional and courteous (were even sweeping up what little mess they made) I am not easily impressed but they definitely have surpassed my expectations already! Thank you to the Security Alarm team!

We moved to Salem Il 2 1/2 years ago. We had heard nothing but good things about Security Alarm. They worked to build the kind of system I wanted in our home. They are professional and customer care is their long suit. From Larry who sold the alarm to Daniel and Aaron Dice who worked with me, we have a trouble fee unit. What impresses me the most is that we did have issues and Security Alarm stepped up without me asking, and redesigned and upgraded our system to a much different higher quality system that would work flawlessly for our needs. All of this was at their expense. This is something you just don't find anymore. They are proactive and in our particular case, there was a better solution and they handled it with smiles. They just completed a video installation the other day at our home. If you want the best security system and the most superior service do not think twice about calling Security Alarm.

We got broke into the Monday after Thanksgiving in 2015. After this my family and I did not have peace of mind until we had the security alarm installed. I priced three different companies and Security Alarm was definitely the best product and presentation. The knowledge and know how was leaps and bounds above the rest. Security Alarm then came and installed our alarm system on the day and time they said they would. The system has worked flawlessly for three years now. I would definitely recommend them for any security alarm needs. I am 100% satisfied.

I got burglerized in July and wanted to get a home alarm system. I had heard nothing but good things about this company and decided to call them. Aaron Dice came out and told me all about the system and different options and we came up with the perfect solution. Wade came out and did a amazing installation. Very professional explained everything and it works great. Much less money that I expected to pay.They have been in business for ever and don't need this review but I wanted to say what a good expierence I had because when someone has what they consider a bad one they tell everyone but never when they have a good one! Great job guys and keep up the good work!
