Purchasing and implementing a security camera system may seem like a time-consuming and costly endeavor, however, there are plenty of examples of why this isn’t so. Recently, a middle school raised its own funds to install their own security system. It took some time to raise funds, but the wait was worth the end result. While there may not be legions on people willing to help fund your quest for a security system, there are affordable options out there.
Before you begin to search for a security camera system, it is wise to evaluate your budget as well as the area you would like to secure. Are you looking for a home security system? Are you securing your business office? Do you only want to monitor indoors, outdoors, or both? For your convenience, SecurityCamExpert.com offers a free quote based on your needs.
For those relatively unfamiliar with security camera systems or those looking for a deal, security system packages are a smart choice. These packages can set you back a few hundred or so, depending on the number of cameras and specifications, but they provide the fundamental components to get you started. These systems allow you install a security system and, as funds permit, possibly upgrade or add equipment in the future.
If you have room to spend a bit more, you can build your own system tailored to your needs. The equipment is available individually, but prices can vary depending on resolution, camera type, etc. A basic security camera can start around $40-50 and go up from there depending on camera style and advanced features. Security cameras come in various styles with a wide range of features. Choose from bullet, dome, or box cameras with night vision, high resolution, PTZ abilities and more.
Digital video recorders, or DVRs, are a necessary expense. These can start in the low hundreds and up. It is wise to choose a DVR that comes with a hard drive for convenience and cost. Depending on how many cameras you will be installing, be sure to get a DVR that will support them. For example, 4 channel DVRs can support up to 4 cameras, 8 channel DVRs can support up to 8 cameras, and so on. While a DVR with fewer channels may cost less, if you plan on building your system in the future, you may want to purchase a DVR with more channels.
Proper power supplies and cabling are vital to your system as well. To save space and money, investing in 2 in 1 cables, such as video and power cables, will allow connection consolidation. Placing your security cameras close to a power source can help cut cost a bit as the length of the cables can sometimes add to its price.
For the best deal, choose a complete security camera system package that best meets your needs.

We will gladly work with your budget and answer any questions you may have. Visit us online or give us a call at 1-888-203-6294 to speak with us directly.
