• 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.
• 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.
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.
• 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
• 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.
