The Importance of Installing Surveillance Cameras for Business

Therefore, if you have not provided a security camera for your business, it is recommended that you do so as soon as possible, you can see different places of your business. Some security cameras are such that they can call the police or you as soon as they see a case; you can get to work very quickly.

It is recommended to put an alarming eye next to the security camera. So with this device, you can determine that if a person passes a place, this will inform you very quickly. The eye has many uses in detecting thieves, so it is possible to maintain a complete range without having to monitor the entire area.

Now, in order to be able to watch your surveillance cameras online, you should have a Dahua DVR setup meaning there must be internet on both sides of the device.

It should be noted that the higher the speed of your internet connection, the faster the videos sent from the security camera will be viewed.

If your internet camera speed, as well as the speed of your mobile or laptop internet, slows down, it will cause you to watch security camera videos on the scene. As a result of this, you will not be able to have a higher quality of monitoring on a particular location.

If your work is sensitive and needs to be resolved very quickly, it is recommended that you provide a high-speed internet connection for both your mobile device and your security camera.


Do you really always need high-speed internet? – is it important to configure Dahua DVR for remote viewing?

No. If your business is such that you need to see the location of the business, you do not always have to have the ultimate speed.

For example, you own a chain store and there are thousands of small/ large products in your store. A person may enter the store then steal a small item. In this case, despite the low speed of the Internet, you will not be able to find out about this issue.

So if you can take care of your business from home, we suggest you get high-speed internet for your surveillance camera.

But on the other hand, if you have a camera for your home and you want to have full control over your home from work, you really do not need a high-speed internet connection. At the same time, you can see a person without permission to enter your place of residence; you can call the police very quickly or return home from work.
