Parking Lot Camera Installation

Parking Lot
Surveillance for Lots, Depots, Garages, and Storage Facilities

Parking lot cameras can act as a deterrent for crimes on your property, protecting not only your company's valuable assets that are stored in the lot, but more importantly, protecting your workers and customers as they walk to and from their vehicles. When some unfortunate accident or crime does occur, the camera footage is a valuable tool for investigation. The camera system could easily pay for itself over the course of a single incident investigation.

At Camera Security Now, we offer our parking lot security cameras with a variety of features, such as license plate recognition, facial recognition, and wireless connectivity back to the main building. Infrared imaging for night time or low light video recording is standard on modern IP cameras.

At Camera Security Now, we have installed security cameras in parking lots, bus depots, car lots, storage facilities, and garages, and we're confident we can provide a surveillance system that will help protect your business.

Frequently Asked Questions For Parking Lot Security Systems

Is 720p Right For My Parking Lot
Will 720p Be Enough To Watch Over My Entire Parking Lot?

A security camera whose resolution is 720p (1280×720) could, in certain situations, be "good enough" for a large parking lot given that the image it provides meets it's intended need. For example, in a scrap yard using security cameras to watch various collections of scrap metal, a 720p camera would be more than capable of telling you if a certain pile of scraps were full, or empty, even at 100 feet away. However, it would be inadequate if the need were to capture the company name or logo on the side of a truck at that same distance. Pro Tip - 720p security cameras are all but obsolete with most entry-level cameras today starting at 1920 x 1080. Don't be fooled, there would be no reason to buy such old technology.

Are Wireless Cameras Wireless
Are Wireless Security Cameras Completely Wireless?

A completely wireless security camera needs two things, an internal power source, and either an internal video storage device or built-in WiFi / Bluetooth. An example of such a completely wireless camera would be a "trail camera" or "game camera" sold at a sporting good store. Completely wireless security cameras are not, however, common in business applications.

Ways To Store Camera Footage
What Are Compact Ways My Security Footage Can Be Stored?

When video from a security camera is stored on the hard drive of a Network Video Recorder (NVR) it is always compressed. The effectiveness of that compression determines the amount of video the hard drive can store before it becomes full and the older video then is overwritten. This relationship determines the "retention period", usually expressed in days of video, of an NVR system. The current and most effective compression algorithm is H.265. The most compact way to store your footage be sure to use both security cameras and an NVR that support H.265 compression.
