Any piece of equipment can prove inefficient if not properly implemented. Still, once you understand the problem points, it’s easy to minimize the so-called “x factors” that hinder security systems.
- The Angle and Location of the Security Camera
One factor that negatively affects the performance of surveillance video is the angle and location of the camera. If you’ve installed your cameras yourself, you may not have placed them at an optimal angle. In fact, improperly placed cameras may conceal crimes that lurk in plain sight. Expert installation is the best way to ensure that your cameras are doing what you want them to.
- Improper Syncing
Improper syncing can also reduce the effectiveness of your equipment. A good surveillance system should correctly integrate with, say, a series of auto-lock mechanisms. A correctly functioning system will hinder or entirely exclude criminals during an incident. But what if it doesn’t correctly synchronize with your other equipment? You might as well not have it for all the good it will do you. A security system that doesn’t work as intended usually doesn’t work at all.
- Not Maintaining Your Video Security System
Skimping on maintenance is another element that can lead to decreased efficiency. When a single piece of equipment fails, it may render an entire system useless. Fortunately, a competent security company can regularly service your system, ensuring that it works when you need it to. After all, crime can occur at any time, and a security system needs to function 24/7.
