Security Cameras for Gas Stations
Surveillance Systems For Businesses
Most gas stations across the country have been using one form or another of security cameras for years. Many stations still have their original taped-based security system while others still use just a monitor with no recording device at all. One important thing these holdouts from the last century might want to consider is that even without a modern DVR or a recording device the wire that the CCTV security cameras are most likely using is a common coax cable still used today. This allows a great deal of the old infrastructures and sometimes the cameras themselves to be easily incorporated into a new PC Based DVR security system.Get A Gas Station Surveillance Quote

Point of Sales Surveillance
Since virtually all gas pumps have their own built in credit card chip readers, gas stations have a large number of sales points in a small area of space. In addition to individual gas pumps, gas stations also have cash registers inside for taking cash payments from customers and typically also allow the gas station to function as a convenience store. Simply put, there are a lot of places where money and credit card infortmation is changing hands at gas stations. Point of sale security cameras can help deter criminals seeking to rob employees working the cash register, but are best used for capturing evidence for incidents or crimes such as car crashes and robberies.

Frequently Asked Questions For Gas Station Security Systems
What types of cameras are best for my gas station?
The best type of security cameras for your specific business depends on the environment the cameras will be in and your expectations for the video they will be recording. That being said, there are generally two considerations that will help answer the question of "what's the best type of security camera for my business" and those are how harsh is the environment and how much video detail (resolution) do I need to see. If the environment is very harsh on account of the heat, cold, rain, or even the potential for vandalism or an explosion, then choosing the best camera will start with choosing the most appropriate camera housing to survive given those factors. The second factor, as mentioned before, is the amount of detail you need to have from any given camera. For example, if your goal is to watch over a very large outdoor parking lot, you may decide the best camera is one with a wide-angle lens and a very high resolution, such as 8-megapixels. Conversely, if you want to get a good face shot of people entering your building, you may decide the best camera has a lens with more zoom and a resolution in the 2-megapixel range. When you consider both factors you will then be able to easily narrow down what the best security camera will be for any given application.
Can different video qualities take up more space?
The amount of storage space any video takes up on a DVD, thumb drive, hard drive, etc., is always related to its quality and resolution. Much like other video formats have evolved over the years and have gone from older, analog, tube-based television resolutions, to digital high-definition and 1080p, 4k, and beyond, security cameras have evolved in a similar fashion. With each evolution that has pushed resolution and quality higher, the amount of bandwidth required to transfer the video, and the amount of storage space required to keep the video, has increased. Keep in mind the amount of storage space required for any given camera can vary greatly so be sure to ask your security camera provider if your expectations to store a certain time period of video are practical for your budget.
Is a security camera system affordable for a small business?
