Advice needed for Surveillance camera systems at Store ?

by jaketayl / January 27, 2014 7:57 AM PST

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum and hope I enjoy my stay over here with people as I love to share ideas and thoughts with others and believe through this knowledge can be given & gained too.
Therefore, I wanted some sensible advice on installation of surveillance camera systems at my store. I am looking for a cheap system which would help me to record footage and could help me to prevent employee theft and also help me in revealing faces of suspects who enter in store for looting.
Some one suggested me a DVR ystem, some said IP cameras. I am thinking over them but I am not sure where to get them from ?
Any suggestions ....???

Don't get bogged down.

Your average CCTV person may make a big deal over the exact coverage of a camera. For example they'll show you the employee can hide in some corner but they are playing your fears here. How does any employee know the camera didn't cover the left side of the far corner?

Get some ready to install camera system and get it working. Put the recorder in some secure spot and then turn it on. A good system is one that just works day in and out. I set them to loop record, discarding old footage as need be.

This is not going to get you better or more honest employees. Any decent HR person can tell you that.

Hey Bob,

Thanks for the advice. I am going to think over it about positioning the camera accordingly. I would require a system that doesn't discard the old footage & therefore I came across this product - https://www.q-see.com/products/product_description.php?cId=135&pId=300&id=135&pid=113 which I saw over the internet and works 24*7.
They have also got some other products too but I found this one better. I think it's time that I should get it installed and start working on it. Do you have any other ideas regarding the product or some other source. I find this product compatible with my smart phone too therefore it would be convenient for me to keep an eye while I am out of the store too.

There is always "better".

Don't fall for the better trap. This is a commodity device so get it done.

Yes, this device is good and I really liked. I had a word with one of their representatives over the phone and their person explained all the things. I told them my situation at the store and then they recommended me to get that installed particularly for store purpose. They will be coming at the store within a day or two and I am going to settle this down. Their service is good, I believe if they are sincere about coming that quick.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
