Implementing a reliable video surveillance solution that will meet business needs is a considerable challenge for any organization.
Thankfully, support is available from both Pelco and their integrators to make the process easier and to increase the likelihood that the resulting system will meet expectations.
Establishing clear objectives and answers to key questions at the start of the project will make all the difference between a successful and effective solution, and a disappointing one.
Here are a few basic questions before doing any planning:
- What are the operational goals of the surveillance system? Any system design involves many decisions, and the first goal should be to understand what the system is intended to do.
- How will the system be staffed? It is very important to know at the start of the project whether the surveillance system will be monitored all the time, sometimes, or not at all. Camera control and analytics will be greatly affected by the answers here.
- What are the environmental conditions? Extreme heat, cold, humidity, corrosion, and high dust level conditions are important in determining what equipment can be considered for the installation. Other environmental factors are ambient light levels, the availability and reliability of existing power and network infrastructure.
The answers to these questions help determine the range of possible equipment choices.
