Before installing a surveillance system, we recommend you do a site survey and document it for future needs and upgrades.

There are many building blocks of a site survey, and in this guide we help identifying some of them. One of the first things to define is the purpose of the installation. The physical location and the customer’s needs are two other important things to consider, as well as reviewing the existing security procedures and establish the new ones. What areas to monitor and why, which cameras to select and where to place them, and the current network infrastructure are also key factors for a successful surveillance installation.

In this guide, we present site survey considerations in five steps.
