Another prime example of the benefits of the c-mount security camera has to do with how banks and many large business employ them. The bulky size of c-mount cameras can be used to your advantage, as they are very noticeable and often deter crime by simply alerting all would be vandals or thieves that they are being recorded.
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.
When shopping for a c-mount security camera, it is important to remember that they do not come with a lens, which makes them both initially more expensive and more adaptable. Having a more expensive initial price tag does not tell the whole story, however, as most c-mount cameras become far less expensive in the long run. The reason for this is that often a c-mount camera can be repositioned in a security setup that has changed simply by buying a new lens rather than having to buy a new camera.
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.
• 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.
• DVR. This is a hard drive that allows you to record and playback the video feed from the security system. When the memory becomes full, the new video signal will then overwrite the oldest one. There are some systems that have memories large enough to record 150 days worth of footage.
