• Cables. Systems should be connected with signal cables from the cameras to the TV, VCR, computer or DVR for recording purposes. DVRs and cameras should have power cables. It is a must to determine where the camera will be mounted so that you will know ahead of time how much cable you will need. Make sure that the system you buy includes cables to get the system up and running.
Your home security camera central core should be placed in a protected area of your home, an office or second bedroom. You place your security cameras where they can be seen and not seen, in areas where you may otherwise be blind. Your home security camera system should, naturally, cover your entry and exit points.
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.
• Do you prefer wired or wireless cameras? Hardwired Camera Systems are more reliable than wireless will require that you drill holes into walls to mount cameras and to feed wires through the walls. Wireless Security Camera Systems use radio frequency through the air from the cameras transmitter to a receiver. The receiver picks up the signal and transfers it to a TV or Monitor or Digital Video Recorder. So no wiring is required. Wireless cameras are much easier to install and can be mounted almost anywhere and can be moved around with more ease.
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.
In this day and age of uncertainty it is no small wonder that security systems have been a booming industry. They have always shown strength in numbers, but not as much as they have in the last 5 years. There are a myriad of systems that one can choose from, but none better, in many respects than home security cameras.
