C-mount security cameras are very effective when used indoors, but face challenges when used outdoors. To be used outside, c-mount cameras need special mounting brackets to fix them on the wall and housings, as c-mount cameras are very susceptible to the environment.
• How many cameras do you need? Decide how many locations you want monitored, such as doors, windows, driveway etc. This will give you an idea of how many cameras you will want included in your security system. Most security camera systems come with one or two cameras. If you might need to add more cameras, make sure the system you choose is capable of adding more cameras later.
Wireless security cameras for the home arent a bad idea. They allow you ease of use and installation. You can also move them when you need to upon finding holes in your home security system needs. Other options may be weighed as well such as DVR system or tape recording which comes hand in hand with your home security camera system.
• 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.
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.
• 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.
