Straight Talk from Video Surveillance Buyers
Video surveillance systems can range widely in available features, capabilities, peripherals, and monitoring options. And as new technologies expand system capabilities, these options continue to grow. We surveyed recent buyers to get a better understanding of the features they were looking for:
- “I have a 16 channel analog security surveillance system that I'm trying to upgrade to 32 channel. I understand I will not be able to use the same DVR but I would like to use the existing cameras and add new ones. I also need powerful software with good mobile app for iPhones and ability to view through a browser.”
- Director, Information Services, Miami, FL
- “I am involved in the local HOA and we are looking to put cameras in our clubhouse. We may be able to get by with three indoor cameras and one outdoor camera. At a minimum we will need a 500GB DVR with the ability to access through the Internet. The cameras need to be able to view large areas. Will need the make and model of components and a rough installation cost.”
- General Manager, Restaurant, Commerce, CA
- “I have a large warehouse that I need to install weatherproof night vision cameras along the front corner and one side of the warehouse. Probably around six cameras or so. The warehouse is about 20 feet tall and will need to go about 100-150 feet back from front office where the CPU and monitor will be. I would also like iPhone app capability.”
- Engineer/Programmer, Other Services, Snyder, TX

- Consultant, Government, Battle Creek, NE
- “We are interested in posting cameras at our entrance and exit gates to our private community. We want to be able to identify vehicles and license plates coming and leaving day and night.

Clarity and sharpness are essential.”
- Admin. Assistant, Financial Services, Aurora, IL
- “We have an approximately 7,000 square foot office space we are leasing with only two entry/exit doors. We would like to get a quote for a simple alarm and or video surveillance system for our office. Since we are on a month-to-month lease we want something that is not permanent.”

- Owner, Restaurant, Ocala, FL
- “We need one camera at each of the three doors and one camera covering the main alter.

- Admin Assistant, Non-Profit, El Cajon, CA
