How to Choose CCTV Cameras for Home Security

Security cameras help you protect your house against theft and vandalism both inside and outside. However, because of the number of options available with security cameras today, it’s important that you get all the information you can on home security cameras before you make any purchases. Keep reading to find out more about what you need to look for in your home security cameras.

Buying Considerations

Every security camera you find will have different specifications and do different things for you, so you need to know what you expect out of your security cameras so you can find one that works for you and meets your needs. Ask yourself these questions before getting started.

Do I need cameras that will work at night?

Because the vast majority of crimes are committed at night, it’s a good idea to get security cameras that will be able to see even in complete darkness. Many of the security cameras that you can find today can see perfectly in the dark, and work during the daylight hours as well.

How many cameras will I need?

This will depend on how big of an area you need to cover and how much coverage you want in that area. For a small front yard, you may only need two cameras to give a broad view of the front yard and the street, and one to watch the door closely. But to cover the backyard as well or a much larger property, you will need a more expansive system. The good news is that most systems allow you to add cameras as needed and still be able to connect them to the same security system. Read more

Do you like to listen to songs while bathing? If yes, then you may want to dedicate one speaker in your bathroom. Depending on your budget and needs, you can decide to cover only a few rooms with speakers or you can cover every corner of the house. Read more

No Worries for CCTV Installation

The CCTV or closed circuit television is used for surveillance whether at home or in businesses. The most important thing to remember when doing CCTV installation is the placing of the cameras and their wiring or cable connections to external monitors such as TVs. It is also important to install it correctly to avoid short circuits. Some CCTVs are expensive; that is why it is important for home owners and business people to maintain their devices every so often.

When you are planning to do CCTV installation inside the house on your own, it might be a risky procedure. The wiring should be properly placed wherein it is not so much exposed to sunlight or moist. The plug should also be somewhere hidden. In businesses, the placing of the CCTV cameras should be a bit inconspicuous to the customers. This is to trick the burglars or dirty employees. They should also have an outlet such as a monitor to project the images from the camera. Owning CCTVs is a must for business owners. Read more
