CCTV Network Planning


CCTV (Closed Circuit TV) the digital video camera that receives control data and sends image data via the Internet is an Internet Protocol camera that requires a local area network to work as these cameras work on their own system when connected to Digital Video Recorder (DVR).

In addition, you can use these cameras for surveillance to protect your employees and your company’s properties.

Planning is the Key:

Planning isn’t just about making the installation of the CCTV system easier, but to ensure that your security system fits your property’s security needs. Therefore, planning comes first before purchasing any security system.

How to Start CCTV Network Planning?

  • Start with a security
  • Evaluate your current security status to determine your security vulnerabilities and identify key access points.
  • Use this gathered information to define which security system would meet your needs, as there are many types of cameras to choose from such as (indoor, outdoor, wired and wireless camera).

Where to Place CCTV System:

  • Focus on specific areas of interest.
  • Monitor entry and exit points, the front & back doors are the most important.
  • Angle camera at a downward angle.
  • Use multiple cameras to cover blind spots.
  • Place the CCTV cameras out of reach.
  • Double Check for lighting issues that may affect image quality.

A well-designed CCTV system needs to be well documented. Otherwise, maintenance becomes very difficult these documents include CCTV schedule, which is a very important document containing alarm system equipment descriptions and CCTV camera location descriptions. It also includes:

  • Which DVR/NVR the camera is connected to.
  • Which input of the DVR/NVR a camera is connected to.
  • Camera ON: which corresponds to number on CCTV plan.
  • The type of Camera, Lens, Mount, Housing etc.
  • Camera name.
  • Another related CCTV equipment & more.
