When people think of a CCTV system, the first and sometimes only thing they think of is the cameras they see. CCTV cameras are important, however, they are not the only consideration in designing a successful CCTV system. The types of cameras, the location of the cameras, how the cameras are displayed and recorded, and even the type of cable used to transmit the video signal from the cameras must all be considered.
A successful CCTV camera installation is only successful if it meets the customer's needs. These needs must be determined before determining the equipment required, the location of the equipment, and the end-use of the equipment. These factors can only be clarified by meeting with a representative of the company providing the CCTV camera installation and the customer who is purchasing the equipment. An initial meeting that determines the client's needs along with a later meeting in which the solution to those needs must be given.

The client must communicate his needs to the CCTV provider. These needs, which include problem areas they want to cover, what type of coverage they need, and their final budget for the project.
Budget considerations can be achieved by installing a less expensive camera package in some locations and more expensive equipment in others. Replacing black and white cameras with color cameras often saves hundreds of dollars that can be used on other equipment. The supplier can provide the customer with a drawing showing the camera locations and coverage areas in the facility.
This drawing will allow the client to visualize the coverage and not have doubts about the areas of the installation that will be covered by the CCTV camera system. This drawing can be delivered to the client for presentation to management for final approval.
