Signs It’s Time To Upgrade Your Surveillance System

Protecting your business is and should be one of your top concerns as a business owner. If you’re using outdated, broken, or poorly functioning equipment, how can you be sure you’re successfully protecting it? Your surveillance cameras play a key role in keeping your property safe, but if they aren’t performing at 100%, you can be sure your business isn’t 100% protected. Is it time to upgrade your surveillance system? If you are experiencing any of these issues below, you should consider it.

Poor Image Quality

If you can’t see what is happening on your surveillance camera recordings, it’s probably time for an upgrade. IP cameras are able to give you better picture quality because they can shoot at higher resolutions. They also have better zoom features so you can capture small details. With an upgraded surveillance system you will be able to see more details and cover a larger area with just one camera.

Outdated Software

Using outdated technology creates potential security risks. New surveillance system software offers more storage and advanced features. For example, with remote access via your mobile device or a web browser, you can view what is happening in real time without physically being there. The next time you’re away from the office, you can worry less knowing you can check in at any time.

Broken Cameras

All technology is prone to having issues from time to time. Sometimes you just need to do a simple reboot and the problem is fixed. Finding out that your surveillance camera hasn’t been properly working after an incident occurs is not ideal. With an IP camera system, you are able to program automatic system reboots. You will also be alerted of issues so you can fix them before it’s too late.

No Flexibility

Your technology should be able to expand with your business. It can be costly to add additional cameras to traditional surveillance systems, and they typically only allow a certain amount to begin with. You are left struggling to try and make one camera cover too large an area, and therefore having to sacrifice coverage. IP cameras can be easily scaled to grow with your business. You can guarantee you won’t miss a thing because every angle of your business property can be covered.

Costly Upkeep

As your system gets older it will likely need more maintenance. What’s the point of keeping it updated if you’re not fully satisfied? As new systems continue to be developed, older systems will get pushed to the back and become less competitively priced. It’s a common misconception that installing IP Surveillance Systems is more expensive, but with so many options available you can get the product you want at an affordable price. You will save yourself time and money by upgrading your system.

Your surveillance system should provide you with reliable, usable video security. More importantly, it should give you peace of mind. If you’re ready to upgrade your surveillance system talk to one of our experienced technicians today.
