What makes a security system deployment successful? Well, first of all, you have to have the right security solutions installed. Whether you're working with network video recorders (NVRs), digital video recorders (DVRs), surveillance cameras or a combination of these, you have to have the right technology in the right places to ensure your facility is protected. However, your security system is only effective if it is reliable. Blackouts, brownouts, surges and line noise can all hinder the operations of your system, preventing you from keeping all who use your facility safe.
There are a variety of ways you can keep your security system powered on and protected. First, let's take a look at your power options. Depending on how you've connected the technology in your security system to power, there are various ways to keep them powered on. PoE switches and PoE injectors can power PoE devices, so if you're choosing to install Power over Ethernet devices, that's a great option. UPS systems provide reliable battery backup to keep your devices on during outages, and they can support both PoE and non-PoE equipment. Tripp Lite even offers UPS system configuration to match your battery backup runtime requirement. Surge protectors can provide protected power outlets or even data line protection, keeping your devices protected from damaging surges and line noise.
All of these solutions keep your devices powered on and operational, but how do you physically protect your security system? It's critical to keep it safe to comply with insurance requirements, privacy regulations and payment card industry (PCI) security standards. You can use a variety of solutions, such as wall-mount rack enclosures or DVR lockboxes, to ensure the physical security of the devices within your system.
