Suriname CCTV and Video Security

Visiting Suriname during August is always a pleasant experience with its mild temperatures and passing rain storms which usually only last a few minutes.

Cortex models with miniature housings and long-range infrared are extremely popular among the locals which many times build customize brackets and mounts to suit their buildings.

There are some great installers in the region that can help with designing a system and recommending the ideal solution for any project. Some business owners have taken to the idea that megapixel over network connections is the best form of surveillance. However, during our visit we noticed that the existing infrastructure in some of these country are limited and IP camera systems can actually cause a lot of trouble for installation and networking.

Old houses in paramaribo

Many old houses from over 100 years ago can be found in the capital of Suriname. Many times, These charming homes are kept in their natural state and provide a walk-through history as you navigate the city. They also provide a glimpse as to some of the difficult construction that can be found for wiring up a security camera system in this country. Even some of the businesses in the capital are built on top of old construction and create layers of difficulty for anyone attempting to run wires. Request for wireless security cameras are often heard but are quickly shut down with the idea that power is required and the old buildings with the cement walls provide a barrier for many of the new wireless technologies in the high frequency range.
