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.
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.
• Infrared Outdoor Bullet Security Cameras. This is a must have for night time surveillance. This outdoor security camera system provides clear colored images during the day and black and white images at night. This type facilitates nighttime surveillance with various resolutions and lens angles.
• 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.
• 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.
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.
