Are you looking to get HD security cameras in at your business or home? One factor that everyone wants information on is security camera installation cost. While we can’t give you a one size fits all cost, we can introduce you to some of the factors that will affect your cost. Here is what you need to look out for.
How Much Of The Process You Want Them To Handle
The first factor that will affect the cost of your installation would be how much you wanted the installation company to handle. While companies are capable of just installing the cameras you pick out, in the locations you pick out, they are capable of doing more than that. Companies are also capable of doing more than that. They can walk your facility, pick out the optimal camera positions, and the right type of camera for each spot. The more that your installer takes on, the more the camera installation will cost.
Location of Security Camera Installation
An important factor to the cost of security camera installation is the location of your installation. If you are out in the middle of nowhere a security camera technician will have to travel to your location. This can affect your cost as you might need to pay travel time for installers to come out. Keep in mind that this might also need to be paid for any support or modifications you need performed.
Complexity of Security Camera Installation
The complexity of your setup will dramatically affect the camera installation. For example, if you have to put a lot of wire through the wall and have long distances, the greater the installation will cost. Larger number of cameras and multiple viewing stations will also increase the complexity and thus the cost of the installation.
Camera System Selected
The type of security camera system that you select will affect the installation price. A wireless system will typically cost less to install because you won’t have to have equipment placed inside the walls. The more cameras that you install will also influence the price. Wired cameras will cost more because of the amount of work that goes into installing them.
Software And Programming
There are a variety of security camera systems that you can choose from. Many of these will allow you to access the cameras and recordings on the computer. Installing the software on multiple machines and programming the DVR will also take time. The more locations that you need the software available on will affect the cost.
While you upfront cost of installing cameras at your home or business might be great, it is important to consider the fact that many insurance companies will offer you a discount every month if you have a camera system. This can help you factor out part of the cost of installation. Speak with your insurance company before the installation to see what benefits you can get for having a camera system.
Alerts and Mobile Monitoring
With modern security cameras, you can set up mobile monitoring so that you can watch cameras from anywhere that you have your phone and an internet connection. This means you can always know what is going on. Many people also opt to have mobile alerts setup so that you know when someone has entered your home or business. These alerts can be custom tailored and the more alerts and monitoring you want setup, the more expensive it will be.
