How Much Is a Business Security Camera System?

Published March 8th, 2022 by Secure IT Securities Corp

According to the FBI, there were an estimated 7,196,045 property crimes in the United States in 2018. While you can't always prevent property crime, you can set up a security system to protect yourself and help authorities identify a criminal. 

Whether you're looking for a residential or business security camera system, our company can help. We understand that the first step toward installing a security system is knowing how much it will cost. 

In this quick guide, we'll go over how much a security system might cost. It depends on many factors, so read on to learn more. 

Components of a Business Security Camera System

Since there are many aspects to a commercial security system, it's important to understand how each can affect prices. Generally, a security system is going to consist of four main costs:

  • Hardware
  • Installation
  • Remote security (to prevent hacking)
  • Security monitoring 

All of these factor into the security system cost. Let's dive deeper into how each affects the price. 

Hardware

Hardware includes any physical parts of your security system. Cameras, CCTV systems, security panels, or access control systems.

Generally, a video surveillance system is going to cost anywhere between $199-$399 on average. High-end systems may cost upwards of $840. This price is all dependent on the camera model – some being more expensive than others. 

Installation

Usually, there is a fee associated with installing security cameras. Installation costs often depend on the company you're working with. Some companies may not charge an installation fee at all.

While there's no set price for installation fees, a good estimate is around $50-$200. It all depends on the size of your business and the security company's policies.

Remote Security 

Some companies monitor the status of your security system in order to prevent hacking. Also known as cybersecurity, this is used for security systems with cloud data or local networks.

Once again, there is no hard and fast rule for cybersecurity costs. It all depends on the company's policies. On average, expect full cybersecurity to cost $1,400. 

Security Monitoring

This is different than cybersecurity. Security monitoring allows a monitoring center to be notified when your security system is triggered. 

This offers an additional line of defense, as a monitoring center can take the necessary action to respond to threats in your home or business. Usually, this is included as a monthly fee. Talk with your security company to get their price.

No Set Price

As stated before, all of these components affect the price of your security system. The best thing to do is discuss which services are offered and how much they cost with a security company. 

Ultimately, you decide how much a security system will cost. You have control over what products you want to use, and any additional fees you're willing to pay for.
