3. Do You Need Remote Access
When installing CCTV’s you need to consider whether you will need to access them via the internet if the answer is yes then you will need to have an active internet connection at your residence it is important to get this into place before the installation is done.
4. Size of your Residence influences whether to use IP CCTV Cameras or Analogue CCTV Cameras
It is also important to know that different technologies have a limit when it comes to data transmission if the distance between your cameras and DVR/NVR is more than 100Metres that will mean that IP Cameras may not be ideal for such a residence since IP Cameras use ethernet cable and such cables can only send data to a distance of 100Metres. The best alternative in such a scenario would be to use analogue CCTV’s which utilize coaxial cables this increases the data transmission to 500 Metres.
