There are a few prerequisites for setting up an network surveillance system. First of all, you have to have a mobile broadband or
Wi-Fi service available. Also, in case you are not purchasing a monitor form a security supply company, you will also need a laptop
or a desktop computer.
Before you opt for a certain network surveillance camera it is important to determine the complexity of the monitoring system that suits your needs. It all depends on whether your home or office is a potential burglar's Mecca, and what are the soft spots of your home or business security. If you are only worried about how a housekeeper or a babysitter acts while you are not at home than a simple IP camera system that you can hide in other objects would be just fine. More sophisticated systems will be needed if you are
an owner of a building with valuable equipment or other valuable personal property. One other thing to decide on before you install
the system is to determine how many cameras you need. If you are the owner of a small property (one building with a few entrances) then, you will not need as many cameras as an owner of a large property that has many buildings.
Usually, an IP camera system can be bought with either four or eight cameras in the package. Next you have to decide where to put the cameras – customers usually install them near doors, directly over valuables or around the perimeter. It is important that the visitors who can be potential burglars or hooligans see the cameras so they can be deterred.
Now it is time to set up IP camera system hardware. Most camera systems come with everything you need, except the tools:
screws, bolts, mounting brackets. A big convenience of IP camera systems is that there are no cables involved. Make sure you
have a power drill with you. After you have installed the cameras, install the software bought together with an IP camera system.
Your computer will then be able to network with the transmitter getting signals from the cameras. If you are using a 3G connection
to monitor your home or business, then you will be able to see camera footage from your cell phone.
