Lately, we have had a surge of new customers interested in HD (high definition) security cameras. There have been so many stories in the news about theft, assault, abuse and other horrific things; and some of it has been caught on video. Most of the time, people say “I want security cameras, but not the kind that I see on the news! They are always grainy!” We hear this a lot. There are some things to consider when purchasing a security camera system (also referred to as CCTV or video surveillance).
Keep in mind that there are some FANTASTIC standard definition security camera systems out there. We sell them. But, they ARE standard definition. You may get an image that looks so good you could frame it, but you may get an image that is useless. For the most part, this type of CCTV is a great solution for most applications. Businesses can easily monitor employees and customers, home owners can know who has been in their home and what they have been doing.
The challenge comes when there is a need for a positive ID. Standard definition camera systems can offer this, but not consistently. On the other hand, HD systems (or IP camera systems) offer consistent high quality images. It is rare that we see this type of video on the news because so few people invest in HD security cameras. They do cost more, but, when a positive ID is needed, HD is the way to go. Systems are so much more affordable than they used to be! (we even offer financing). Check out this video. This is actual footage of an incident that happened in Edmond. One of our customers was able to capture this video from across the street! By the way, the police officers were so impressed with this video, they asked for our contact information for their personal home! (be sure to make it full screen) Edmond neighborhood video
Some people need no introduction, or explanation,
“As a police officer, I know the importance of protecting my home. Unfortunately, often times when there is a burglary, the thief is long gone before the police arrive. This is why having security cameras is so important. Chief DataCom installed my security camera system and I know what is going on at my house 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I can view it all right from my iPhone or computer. I can even see what happened a month ago! The best part is, Chief DataCom is a local company with local people, great prices and great service. These days, anyone who can have this type of system, should get it.”
