Factors that affect the cost of CCTV installation

However, the total amount that you need to shell out for a CCTV system installation job may vary depending on things like cameras, USB receivers, software, and LCD monitors. Any additional features will definitely drive up the cost too.


When it comes to cameras, your options are endless. Low-end cameras can go for affordable prices, but cameras with really good features and resolution are definitely more expensive. Different types of cameras are also available: wired and wireless cameras. In addition to that, you can choose between a CCTV camera that transmits black-and-white videos and one that shows coloured footage.

Televisions or LCD monitors

A TV or monitor needs to be installed so that you or your security staff can watch the footage. The cost of these monitors depends on their features. For instance, single-screen monitors are less expensive than multiple-screen monitors.

Recording Devices

Another important element in a security camera system is the recording device. Apart from seeing the live footage in real time, it is also important to have a recording, which can be viewed at a later time. This is especially helpful if your CCTV feed is not actively monitored 24/7.


The number of cameras and the location where these cameras will be installed can affect labour costs as well. Businesses may charge extra for every additional camera that you need.
