This list however, can be applied to any security camera company looking to be more successful:

1) First, a security camera company needs to be Better Business Bureau approved with a BBB rating of “A” or higher. This rating legitimizes a business and holds a company accountable for providing top-quality service.

2) Provide the total solution, from high definition cameras, wireless cameras, analog cameras, IP cameras, to other types of security systems, such as burglar alarms, access control, fingerprint recognition and intercoms, etc. These products should also come with full-service, such as installation and advice regarding camera positioning and number of cameras.
