Instruction Manual, Tech Support and Warranties The first thing youll need to do, before you purchase any equipment, is to make sure that the system you choose comes with an instruction manual. Not all security camera systems for home and businesses come with a full printed users manual that will walk you through how to install your system. Also its a good idea to only purchase a camera system that comes with free unlimited technical support in case you have questions or run into problems. Not every company offers free tech support with the purchase of their cameras and camera systems. Also, check to see if it comes with a warranty on all hardware.
• 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.
The first security camera was a c-mount security camera, and they were first introduced in the 1970. Perhaps it was the fact that fashion was not at its high that these boxy, bulky security cameras look the way that they do, but it had more to do with the technological limitations of the time. As camera technology was in its infancy, chips sets and circuit boards were much larger than today, which rather restricted security cameras to the c-mount camera style. For many years, c-mount camera design defined the security camera industry, but now the most common shape that most people think of when mentioning a security camera is the bullet camera.
There are many ways to keep your house safe from home invasion. You can install outdoor security cameras or dome cameras to see the coming and going of people around you. Before making the purchase, you need to learn more about these security systems and do so by reading up on them.
• 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.
• Is there a natural light source and will you be using them in darkness? Infrared cameras are a must if you will be monitoring any areas that are in total darkness or have low light situations at different times.
