CCTV Software Setup

A standard CCTV installation include connecting the cameras and the microphone to the DVR then connecting the DVR itself to your router and setting up the options of the DVR.

The most time consuming task is running all the cables from your cameras to the DVR. For example a 4-6 cameras CCTV is usually installed on 8 hours and 80% of this time is for the cable run. Most businesses have suspended ceiling which help to hide the cables, but for external cameras in most cases you can only run the cable on the outside of the building. To connect the cameras you can use coaxial or a network cable. For our installations we prefer using cat6 network cable which allows longer cable run without any signal loss and also allow upgrading the CCTV with a high resolution IP cameras if the customer decides. To use a network cable on a normal analog camera you need to connect balun adapters which convert the signal form balanced to unbalanced. These devices allow connecting cameras on a distance of up to 900 meters. Thanks to the balun adapter you can use network cable to connect your microphone as well. Network cables are made of 8 individual cables grouped in 4 paris. 4 of these cables can be used to transmit the audio or the video signal and the rest can be used for the power.

Most DVRs these days can be accessed over the internet and for that you need to connect it to you existing network. This is done by simply ruining a network cable form your DVR to you existing router. Within the DVR's settings you need to set the correct settings to mach your existing network. The next step is to connect the monitor and configure the DVR. The DVR setup includes - recording schedule and footage quality, setup users with different access levels, alarms for motion or video loss and email notification setting,
