A few simple tools and tricks can make a big difference in terms of time, labor and frustration when deploying surveillance solutions.
Today’s megapixel cameras provide a number of benefits, including their ability to enhance situational awareness by expanding areas of coverage with fewer physical cameras, which can also significantly reduce overall costs associated with both equipment and labor.
But megapixel cameras also require a bit more planning than conventional IP cameras to ensure that they are properly set up and integrated into new and existing systems, says Bill Brennan, vice president, security division, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corporation of America, Chicago. “As a result, manufacturers often tout easy installation as a key feature of their megapixel cameras. This is often the result of the tools they provide to support camera selection and installation processes.”
