• 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.
Home security cameras - The number of crimes are constantly increasing. Home, a place that people consider to be the safest place, is not safe anymore. The home has become a target of several harmful activities in the recent past. The use of cameras at home has now become a necessity and not just an option. Home cameras not only help in detecting crime, but also help in preventing them. Surveillance cameras have become the weapon to fight the growing number of terrorist activities.
Security is a very sensitive issue nowadays. Nowadays, most homes and business establishments are equipped with outdoor security cameras, CCTV kits, as well as other surveillance systems. Outdoor security cameras are essentials. These can be purchased in convenient do-it-yourself kits and easily set up to protect your home and business. These systems typically include weatherproof cameras that can be easily mounted on walls or ceilings. These can also be used together with fake security cameras.
To make sure that the house is completely safe, the cameras have to be positioned at the right places. People who cannot afford a home camera often use dummy cameras. The dummy security cameras help in alerting the miscreant and prevent crimes like real cameras. However, real cameras provide important evidence at the court when a crime is committed.
• 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.
• Will you be placing the cameras inside or outside? If youll be placing cameras anywhere outside youll need cameras that are built tougher than typical indoor security cameras. Outdoor cameras will be exposed to vandalism and the elements, such as wind and extreme heat or cold. There are many outdoor cameras available that are built to withstand all these outdoor conditions.
