• 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.
• 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.
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.
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.
• 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.
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.
