What Do HDCVI Cameras Cost?

Owning a business in many cases means taking on a great deal of responsibility, which can come with a certain degree of anxiety over what might happen to your locations, assets, and employees when you’re not around. You don’t have the luxury of leaving work at work – since it’s your responsibility and burden to bare, you take work home with you. For this reason, security cameras have become a necessity for most business owners.

But the problem with investing in security cameras historically has been that business owners have had to choose between expensive high-def cameras, which can accurately identify a suspect, and affordable low-def cameras, which are often too grainy to make an accurate identification, leading to fewer arrests and convictions.

However, this has recently changed with the development of HD Analog technology, which combines low cost, compatibility, and high definition. One kind of popular HD Analog camera is the HDCVI camera. Below, we’ll talk briefly about what HDCVI is, as well as some factors that could impact the cost of your installation.

HDCVI (High Definition Composite Video Interface) is one of the new HD Analog cameras which blends the high resolution of more expensive IP cameras with the affordability and easy set-up of the cheaper, lower resolution analog camera. It offers 1080p, high def audio, and long transmission distance. HDCVI is also compatible with old analog technology, which means you can simply unplug your old cameras and DVR and plug in your new HDCVI cameras and HDCVI DVR.

It’s easy, affordable, and just as effective as IP cameras, which are more expensive and extremely complicated to set up and operate in comparison.

HDCVI Camera Cost

HDCVI cameras are certainly much more affordable than IP cameras, but the cost for installation depends on several factors, including:

  • How many cameras are required for your particular set up – Some businesses may need only one or two cameras, while others might require over ten. A typical jewelry store, for example, will have a very different set up than a grocery store or a warehouse, which may require the ability to monitor several different rooms, angles, and areas.
  • Indoor / Outdoor – You may only need outdoor cameras to protect your business from outside threats such as theft or vandalism. However, many businesses choose to install indoor cameras as well to protect against internal threats, such as employee theft or inappropriate conduct among employees.
  • Complexity of the installation – some jobs are simply much easier than others. If you have a system in place that is for some reason incompatible with your new cameras, this could impact the cost. If your old system allows an expert to simply plug new HDCVI cameras in, your cost might be less.
  • Which installation company you choose – Some installation companies may find subtle ways of increasing the price, such as installing more cameras than is really necessary or taking longer to complete a job than is necessary. Working with a company that has a reputation for genuine customer care, integrity, and timely installation will help ensure that you get the best price possible.
