• 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.
• 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.
Today more and more people have the need to learn how to install security cameras and security camera systems in their home or business. This is because crime is on the rise and DIY security cameras and security camera systems have become higher in quality, more affordable and easy to purchase. Since you no longer have to hire a professional to install security cameras, it is possible to have your home or business under surveillance in no time at - all by yourself, and at an affordable price. Here is some help and some tips on how to install your own security cameras.
• Do you need color or black and white cameras? If there are certain situations where it is important to record details such as color of hair, vehicles or clothing, youll need color cameras. Black and white cameras are best if you need higher resolution and generally are less expensive than color. They also are best if you will be using infrared in no light or low light conditions.
• 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.
C-Mount security cameras, like most models of security cameras, do face a weakness: c-mount cameras require considerable effort to be used outdoors. C-mount cameras are more sensitive than, for example, bullet security cameras, and considerable damage can be done to them by rain, wind, heat, or cold. If you need to use a c-mount security camera outdoors, you will need to purchase a housing and a mounting bracket. Some housings simply protect for rain and projectiles, whereas other are equipped with heaters and blowers to keep the temperature constant. Mounting brackets, just as they sound, enable c-mount cameras to be mounted on exterior walls.
