How Much Does it Cost To Install an HDTVI System?

Some really amazing recent technological advances have made HD security cameras much more affordable for small businesses and homes. Video surveillance is still thought of by many business and home owners as an advantage only the wealthy have access to. New security camera systems, such as the new HDTVI cameras, have blended the affordability of the cheap but low-def analog cameras with the high resolution of the more expensive and complex IP camera systems.

Even if you’ve got a tight budget, you can realistically have high-def security cameras protecting your home or business this week if you work with the right installation company! Below, we’ll take a brief look at what HDTVI is, some factors that will impact the cost of installation, and why the folks at Total Security are the ones you should reach out to.

What is HDTVI?bulletcameras

HDTVI cameras are a kind of HD analog camera. There are several different kinds of HD analog cameras, including HDTVI, HDCVI, HDSDI, and AHD cameras. They are all affordable and offer high resolution – 1080p. However, HDTVI has some unique advantages which make it best suited for some homes and businesses in particular.

HDTVI (High Definition Transport Video Interface) is superior to the other HD analog cameras in that it combines a long transmission distance (1600 feet over coaxial cable and 700 feet over twisted pair), high definition and accurate colors in low lighting, and DVR input compatibility (it’s compatible with any digital video recorder, on any channel, and in any configuration). The other HD analog cameras mostly combine two of these features, but lack in one of them. For example, AHD cameras can transmit over 1600 feet through coaxial cable, but only over 492 feet through twisted pair. Additionally, its image is not as crisp and colors not as accurate, especially in low light.

Because HDTVI combines high-def, long transmission, and compatibility, and since it costs about the same as the others, it is considered by some to be the most advantageous of the HD analog systems.

The Cost to Install an HDTVI System

The cost to install HDTVI cameras in your business or home will depend on several factors, including how many cameras you need, whether or not you already have a system that needs to be replaced or worked on in order to install your new cameras, and whether the cameras will be indoor, outdoor, or both.

How an Expert can Help

The right expert can help with efficiency. If you’re on a tight budget, it may be possible to find ways to increase the efficiency of your system using only one or two cameras, rather than installing the number of cameras you would like to have ideally. Camera placement is important here. Some companies might install more cameras on a property than are truly necessary in order to charge more. An experienced and honest professional can help you figure out what you really need to protect your property without purchasing more hardware than is really necessary.
