Can I Install a Professional Security Camera System?
One of the first questions our customers ask us - "is this something I can do myself?"
Let me answer this question first. If you can run a cable from a camera to a digital video recorder, than you can install our CCTV Security Camera Systems. If you do it yourself instead of outsourcing, you will save thousands of dollars. The only time consuming part of the job is running the cable from the recorder to the camera. Today's technology has made it simple and easy for virtually anyone to take advantage of 24/7 surveillance.
Professional Security Camera System Five Components:
1. DVR (Digital Video Recorder)
This is what records the video cameras. The video is stored on the DVR's Hard Drive. H.264 Compression DVR is the NEW compression industry standard. The H.264 Compression DVR stores 3x longer video than the older MPEG and MPEG4 Compression DVR's. I is old technology with less video storage. H.264 DVR's will enable higher video quality both live and over the internet.
All of our DVR's have remote internet viewing from any high speed internet connection in the world as well as mobile phones such as the iphone, or any phone with the 3G Network. Most work with Symbian and the WinCE networks as well. Remote viewing is free. All of our DVR's work with a Dynamic IP address. That is what you will use to access your cameras. To remote view you enter in a web address (ip address), type in your user name and password, and you can view your cameras. Dynamic IP addresses are FREE, so there is no monthy fee extra monthly fee - just your high speed internet. Multiple people can view the cameras remotely at the same time.
Our digital video recorders have sophisticated motion detection with object masking, making it easy for you to review the most important events on each camera. If you choose, you can set up our DVR's record on motion, to prolong the storage of the video on the hard drive. If preferred, you can record 24/7 all the time. You can record on schedule. All video channels have an address that you assign Such as (Outside Front Yard) and is time and date stamped and video is digitally watermarked to prevent video and/or evidence tampering.
When purchasing a DVR, be sure you pick one with H.264 Compression (all of our standalone DVR's on the site have H.264 Compression, we retired the old MPEG and JPEG technology). Also, it is important to have a good amount of video storage (ex. 250 gigabyte Hard Drive, 500 gigabyte Hard Drive, 1 Terabyte Hard Drive. Generally speaking, the longer video storage, the better. With our H.264 compression digital video recorders you will notice large hard drives are included for plenty of storage time. H.264 is the "state of the art" in the Surveillance Industry. And don't worry, after the hard drive is filled with video, the DVR simply loops around and starts from the beginning.
When it comes to burning video make sure the DVR has at least one USB if you wish to burn video to a USB flash drive. All of our DVRs are also networkable with your PC's in the home or office. What this means to you is that you can view your camera system conveniently, with any of your computers on the network as it is compatible with Windows.
Make sure your DVR is in a safe place or locked area as we do not want the DVR to be stolen.
2. Cable, Connections, and Power
The next step is to simply use our Pre-cut Cable or Spools or 500 or 100 Foot Combo Video (BNC Connection) / Power RG59 Siamese Coax Cable. All CCTV security cameras need both Power and Video (2 in One Cable). So you are run just one cable from the DVR to each camera. You can run each cameras cable up to 700 feet without any video loss. Simply connect the video cable to the DVR (says BNC), and plug the power into the power supply. RG59 Siamese Cable. It is the type of cable used to run most CCTV installs. This cable consists of one video cable and one power cable (Positive and Negative), thus the name Siamese.
Designate one location for your DVR and Monitor to be stationed and be sure you have enough wire to connect the DVR to the camera (leave some slack). Designate the location for your DVR and Monitor to be stationed.
If you purchased our Premade RG59 cable with the BNC connections already attached to the line, then at this point you would connect it to the DVR. If you purchased a bulk roll of RG59, we will automatically supply the BNC connections free of charge. You may use twist ons (most commonly used), or crimp on connections.
As for the power, there are two alternatives

4 Years after we purchase our system we had problems with iPad viewing due to Router change and IP changes, I contacted CCTV Pros via the support page, within a few minutes I received a call and the problem was fixed. You cannot get any better service that that. Thank You!

Spoke to salesman Tim at 812. Needed to get a recorded event to the police. He showed me a way of using my DVR and software that saved my company a lot of money, again. So thankful... not to mention the piece of mind.
