Why You Should Hire a Commercial Electrician to Install Security Cameras

Last updated by



Security of systems and physical premises is no longer an after-thought for business owners in Perth. The statistics on crime in the area are concerning local business owners as they worry about their insurance premiums and how to keep their staff and property safe.

It can be challenging to adequately secure of your business without outside help. Using security staff to monitor the premises is one option, however physical staff on site is expensive and has been somewhat replaced by technology, just like many other roles that were once carried out by manpower.

The sophistication of security systems, including both hardware and software for smart devices, and cameras and motion sensors for your business premises, has made the traditional role of the security guard redundant.

Technology has taken over and installation of security cameras and accessories on the premises can suffice and offer cost savings for your business. In many situations there’s also no need for a monitoring company. Alerts can be sent directly to your designated worker which of course could be you. Then you in turn could turn up on site or engage a third party to do a site visit.

What’s a given is the quality of the images produced by advanced security cameras. With the correct set up they offer excellent video capture, and some systems can easily transmit wirelessly to your devices including your smartphone via an App. The key to success is the installation which can make or break the effectiveness of the system. Even for DIY security kits, the recommendation would be to use professionals for the installation and also for advice on what to purchase to meet your business needs.

Select the right system

The starting point is to choosing the right security camera system for your business. If your business is local then contact a Perth commercial electrician who can use their experience to advise on what’s needed and then they can also do the installation too.

Mounting the cameras so they are securely fastened and wired is not for the novice handyman. Remember having cameras that do not operate properly will be nearly as bad as not having cameras at all.

You’ll also need advice on your Internet set up from a security analyst. A VPN is preferred and you’ll need a fast connection for high quality image capture.

Hire the Professionals

Working with the professionals instead of doing the job yourself just makes sense and it will also offer additional benefits. For instance, with a DIY security kit, you’re limited in terms of your accessories and system build possibilities.

With a professional system and installer, you have access to anything you might need, from monitors to recording equipment to cloud-based technology that connects with your company’s computer network.

Your professional electrician and security analysts know their respective industries and technologies proven and green fields so they use knowledge as much as you can.

If you’re ready to take the next step to protect your business, let the professionals help you create a security plan.
