What Impacts the Cost of Security Camera Installation?

Security Camera Installation Cost Factors in Vancouver

The cost of installing security cameras in Vancouver can vary depending on factors such as the number of security cameras, the brand, property size, ease of access


  • Number and Type of Cameras - the choice of the camera will heavily influence the costs. Basic cameras might be cheaper but may not provide high-definition video or night vision. Advanced IP or thermal cameras which have more features (wireless, HD video, pan-tilt-zoom actions, motion detection, night vision, etc.) would cost more.

  • Installation Complexity - if the installation is complicated (requires hardwiring, setup on difficult locations, extensive cabling, etc.), then professional installation charges will be higher.

  • Size and Layout of Property - larger properties such as large homes or businesses may need more cameras for full coverage, which would mean a higher cost for material and installation.

  • Additional Equipment and Accessories - items such as digital video recorders (DVRs), network video recorders (NVRs), monitors, mounts, and other accessories will also add to your total costs.

  • Brand & Model - the security camera brand you choose can significantly impact the price as well. Top brands like Axis, Bosch, or Panasonic might cost more due to their quality assurance.

  • Outdoor vs Indoor Cameras - outdoor cameras often require weatherproofing and are typically more expensive compared to indoor ones.


Always remember to get quotes from multiple security companies before finalizing your decision to understand the market price.
