We know that home security cameras are a formidable crime deterrent, but there are so many home camera system choices currently on the market. The very first thing you should do is decide on just what type of home security camera system you need. No matter your choice, be it a wireless security camera system or hard wired, there is no question that it should include security cameras.
• 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.
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.
Every c-mount security camera has a varying ability to see in the dark. To know how well the camera works in low lighting conditions, you will need to compare its lux rating. A lower lux rating means that the camera will be able to operate better in lower light. Because c-mount cameras can deliver color video in poor lighting conditions, c-mount cameras are especially valued in crime-fighting and government operations. Lower lux ratings usually correlate with more expensive machines.
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.
• Motion Sensing. Some cameras are equipped with motion sensors. The security system turns on and begins recording when the motion sensors are activated. This will come in handy when you dont have a DVR. Types of Outdoor Surveillance Cameras
