In this way the benefits and main cost variables are under your control.
Once you have worked out your storage requirements you will need to decide where you want the CCTV footage stored.
Smaller business and schools may like to ask the Loop to storage the footage for you.
This is the 'default' arrangement.
This this case you will need to have a look at this Loop site on 'Digital storage' costs for appropriate storage costs.
Large schools and businesses however may want to store it on their own servers.
