We will work closely with you to establish an exact installation date and time.
What kind of payment do you accept?
We accept company checks and all major credit cards at time of project completion. If you would like 30-day terms, with approved credit, we can accept a written purchase order.
How does the lease-to-own program work?
This is a great way to pay for a complete system with monthly payments. Under this program, camera systems start at $25 per camera, per month, with a minimum four-camera system. To get started, contact us today and request a free design and quote. The business or property owner must be present during the survey.
We offer 12- and 24-month payment plans, with approved credit. The total payment depends on the value of the equipment and installation. This program comes with a maintenance agreement. We take care of the complete system during the lease.
How difficult is it to view recordings from the day before?
Viewing video from the day before or any previous day is as simple as selecting that day from the calendar. The calendar is located in the Network Video Recorder (NVR) in the playback menu.
What do I do if my hard drive is full and has stopped recording?
During installation, your hard drive will be programmed to “write over” old video. In other words, if you have selected a hard drive that holds seven days of playback, you will always be able to view the last seven days. If you need more recording space, you can purchase a larger hard drive.
How far can I see at night with your cameras?
While Visual Security can select cameras for your specific needs, most of the cameras we provide are rated at 66 meters or 216 feet, depending on the ambient light in your location. We can also add infrared illuminators to extend the viewing range.
What if I lose video on a camera?
There are many reasons why a camera can lose video. At Visual Security, we use IP technology, so a simple camera reboot can usually resolvethe problem. If the problem persists after the system has been rebooted, contact tech support by email or call our office.
