CCTV / Surveillance Cameras

Security Cameras

There are many CCTV/Security Camera systems on the market today. Whether you buy one from us, or just want one installed, we would be glad to help.

Here are some things to consider before purchasing a system:

What is the purpose of the system?

Visual Deterrent:

While a camera may not intrinsically serve as a deterrent, an obviously placed camera may do at least as much as a conspicuous alarm sign. It is not as good as a security guard, but may make the culprit behave or move on.

In this case large conspicuous cameras will serve you better than petite or covert units.

If deterrence is not your primary motivation for buying a surveillance system, there are a number of non-covert cameras that are esthetically pleasing as well as superbly functional.

Our friendly staff can guide you through a range of options.

Remote Monitoring:

Most modern systems provide a way to access the live feed and occasionally the recordings even when you are away from home. Whether through your smartphone, a tablet, or a computer, some type of remote access is available in the vast majority of modern systems.

Every system sold by EZ Switch offers remote access capabilities.

Recording Evidence:

No matter how you think about it, the ultimate purpose of a Surveillance System is to collect evidence. Whether to show your neighbor that their kids were misbehaving or handing the recordings over to the police to help capture an assailant – the true purpose of a camera system is in the recordings.

Our trained technicians can help you select a system that will meet your needs.

Preserving Records:

All the recording in the world are worthless if the burglar makes off with the records. The recording device (DVR or NVR) should be placed in a location that is dry, safe, and has electricity.

Our staff will guide you to a suitable location in your home. 

If a suitable location is not available, a safe for the recorder or even off-site video management may be a better option.
