CCTV System Power Consumption Calculation is Important

CCTV systems can be a large power drain on the building’s circuits.

Power consumption calculation is important because it can help to identify security solution that suit the need of different user (buildings).

For example, a solution where all cameras are powered by one central location is best suited for office buildings with low-density power supply while a system where individual cameras are powered separately at their installation location works best for high-density power environments.

A few common factors in determining an appropriate system include the size and number of the installation area, budget, and safety regulations.

CCTV power consumption is becoming a major issue in the industry. With improvements in CCTV technology, the equipment is becoming more sophisticated and more power hungry.

The best way to calculate the energy consumption of a CCTV system, without relying on estimation, is to calculate it using video analytics data.
