McHenry Video SurveillanceFrequently, with McHenry’s amazing unique natural features in Moraine Hills State Park and Volo Bog State Natural Area that are left from the previous Ice Age can create tourism and community growth, from the modest 27,000 people the town currently has, that causes business to run at a rapid pace, especially along the Richmond Road corridor and off of the Metra Union Pacific/Northwest Line. This makes a video security camera system an absolute must if you’re planning on the growth and development of your business. The ability to know that your business is not only safe, but continually monitored can bring a sense of calm that not many other things can. At Computer Power Systems, we specialize in providing that feeling of tranquility to business owners throughout McHenry by delivering simple and reliable solutions to common business problems.

Video security cameras don’t only protect against theft and vandalism that is, or has already, occurred. They are able to help prevent a large amount of crime from happening in the first place. Many times, when people who were planning to commit a crime against your company know they are being monitored and recorded by a security camera, they decide against their original plans. Even beyond intentional malice, security cameras can help your business in the event of a disaster. If the worst were to happen and a flood, fire, or other calamity was to occur, having a recording or documentation can help provide proof to the insurance companies. On the other hand, if someone is monitoring a live feed of your security footage and notices a problem arising, many times it can be prevented before extensive damage happens, minimizing the potential blow to your business.

Choosing Your Security Camera System

Although there are hundreds of different security cameras on the market that make use of different features and methods for higher resolution, illumination, and mobility, each with their own advantages and disadvantages, there are mainly two types of systems: cable and wireless systems.


Cable security systems provide high quality picture at a low prices. They can provide top-notch video security over long distances because of their incredibly clear video resolution. Although they are more difficult to relocate than their wireless counterparts they can provide incredibly detailed images and continuous security.


Wireless surveillance systems are able to be moved to various places very easily because they are not held to a specific point by cables and other hardware. This makes optimizing your camera use or making changes during remodeling quick and easy. Although the cameras tend to display lower resolution pictures than cable surveillance cameras, wireless cameras are incredibly useful in smaller areas, like offices, quadrants of larger areas, and hallways.
