How to Shop Online for Security Systems


How to shop online for security systems is a lot easier than what you maybe thinking.  In addition to the ease of shopping, shopping online also provides a large amount of different vendors and equipment to allow you to comparison shop, all from the seat of your chair at home.

So how to shop online for security systems may seem to be a somewhat difficult project, however it really isn’t.  If we wanted to, we suggest that you ignore all the other security websites out there and just make your purchases through Security Camera King but we know that you will more than likely return to us anyway once you’ve made your shopping comparisons.

Speaking of comparisons, shopping online makes this part at least, easier than running from store to store.  Incidentally, think about your locality and think of how many actual stores there are that actually have professional type cameras, Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), and other digital video security items on display (not many, are there?).  So we’ve established one thing already and that is it would seem that our shopping experience for security systems will lend itself to those stores that are online.

Check Out Some Online Stores

The first suggestion we have pertaining to how to shop online for security systems is for you to visit a few online stores (including Security Camera King of course).  At this point, don’t worry about any particulars; you just want to get somewhat of a working knowledge of what is out there.

Design Your System

After you have spent some time just perusing online security systems so you can get familiar with the industry, it’s time now to design your system.  Do NOT attempt to purchase any digital video equipment without creating a design first.  We have had several customers in the past admit they “designed on the fly” and came back to us and said they wished they had consulted with one of our security experts first.

Incidentally Security Camera King has security experts available for you to help you in any way possible.  The help you design your system, recommend what equipment is right for you, and assist you with your purchase.  They can be contacted either through our online “Live Chat” feature or by toll-free telephone at 866-573-8878 Monday through Friday from 9AM to 6 PM EST.   (Once again it would be easier to tell you to go to SecurityCameraKing.com and forget the others, but by having you check out online stores earlier you’ll see that very few offer security experts that will help you every part of the way from design to installation of your system).

Now, once you’ve designed your system, you’ll know how many cameras and what type of cameras you will need.  Take a close look at each camera location (and we don’t mean on paper, we mean go to each camera location to see what the camera will actually see).  This will help you to determine if you will need any special features.  For example object tracking for a Pan-Tilt-Zoom camera, infrared night vision, wide dynamic range due to excessive backlighting, etc.  It helps if you make a list of items that will be needed for each specific camera.

Purchase a System

Now that you know what you need to the job, it’s time to consider purchasing the system.  Check out several sites if you wish and see if they offer everything you need.  Please don’t forget to include us!  Price is definitely important, but when you are dealing with a security and surveillance system, quality is a strong contender.  Once again, we you come to Security Camera King, ask to speak to a security expert and they can help you find exactly what you need.  At other online stores it is really easy to buy a camera or system that either doesn’t have what you need, or has an overkill of features that you don’t need that will make the system cost a small fortune.  At Security Camera King our security experts not only have the knowledge but they also have the experience to help you choose the item(s) that will have the exact features you seek but will not send you into bankruptcy.

One last point about how to shop online for security systems.  Our security experts aren’t there just for the purchase, once you receive your system and begin installation, they will help you install it every step of the way if necessary.
