In summary, C-mount cameras are the very highest quality security camera but have some disadvantages when being used outdoors, as they were not built for adverse weather conditions. C-mount cameras can see better than most other cameras in low level lighting conditions, can be adapted by changing out their lenses, and offer the very highest resolution of any security camera.
There are basically three pieces of equipment youll be working with: the cameras, receiver/DVR and the monitor.
• Outdoor Wireless Security Cameras. These are very easy to install and provides maximum security. These enable you to view activities even when you are on the go. These can be controlled and viewed using any web browser and the best thing is, it does not require any separate software. These cameras have very high resolution. The camera has a web address, using which you can access its control through the Internet. Other types of wireless cameras include cameras that use television sets or VCRs, to display the images.
• Dummy Outdoor Surveillance Cameras. This is an option if you do not want to invest money and if a security threat is not that serious. Fake security cameras look just like real ones but they lack the mechanism. These are used mainly to mislead intruders, but they do not guarantee security.
Instruction Manual, Tech Support and Warranties The first thing youll need to do, before you purchase any equipment, is to make sure that the system you choose comes with an instruction manual. Not all security camera systems for home and businesses come with a full printed users manual that will walk you through how to install your system. Also its a good idea to only purchase a camera system that comes with free unlimited technical support in case you have questions or run into problems. Not every company offers free tech support with the purchase of their cameras and camera systems. Also, check to see if it comes with a warranty on all hardware.
• Wireless capability. This is the easiest to install among all types. The need to drill holes is eliminated because the cameras can be simply hooked up. They just need to be plugged in and they can receive live images wirelessly. Make sure to ask specifically for wireless systems when buying. What You Can Find in a Good Outdoor Camera Security -2
