C-mount cameras are still some of the best security cameras around, as their size allows them to always support the newest technology first. As with all technological advances, when a new technology is developed the first goal is to get it created, and the second step it to make it smaller. Because of this process, c-mount cameras are always the first type of security camera to be able to use a new technology. Right now, that technology is 1/2 inch chip sets. Most other security cameras can only use 1/3 or 1/4 inch chip sets. The size of the chip set is important as it defines two things: how well the camera can see in low level lighting conditions and the maximum resolution of the camera.
With the advancement of technology, it is now possible to view the images from a security camera on your home television. No separate monitor is required for outdoor or indoor surveillance. Some parents prefer using home cameras to indoor surveillance. It helps them keep an eye on their children 24x7. Home cameras have helped parents to be aware of incidents of child abuse or child violence by domestic helps and baby-sitters.
To make sure that the house is completely safe, the cameras have to be positioned at the right places. People who cannot afford a home camera often use dummy cameras. The dummy security cameras help in alerting the miscreant and prevent crimes like real cameras. However, real cameras provide important evidence at the court when a crime is committed.
• Will you be placing the cameras inside or outside? If youll be placing cameras anywhere outside youll need cameras that are built tougher than typical indoor security cameras. Outdoor cameras will be exposed to vandalism and the elements, such as wind and extreme heat or cold. There are many outdoor cameras available that are built to withstand all these outdoor conditions.
Home security cameras - The number of crimes are constantly increasing. Home, a place that people consider to be the safest place, is not safe anymore. The home has become a target of several harmful activities in the recent past. The use of cameras at home has now become a necessity and not just an option. Home cameras not only help in detecting crime, but also help in preventing them. Surveillance cameras have become the weapon to fight the growing number of terrorist activities.
• Is there a natural light source and will you be using them in darkness? Infrared cameras are a must if you will be monitoring any areas that are in total darkness or have low light situations at different times.
