Security Cameras

Your family safety is always a priority. Security cameras inside and outside the home can help you keep your family and home safe. You can keep a 24/7 watch on what is happening at your property. Going on a vacation? You can monitor your home from anywhere in the world with the help of security cameras and systems to keep you updated day and night.

Important features to keep in mind when comparing home security cameras.
Motion Detection

Cameras with motion detection can send you notifications when the camera observes motion within its field of view. These notifications can alert you to suspicious activity so you can monitor the situation.

Field of View

Field of view refers to how wide an angle a camera can record. This is important because it will affect how many cameras you’ll need and where you should place them.

Sound

The sound feature can refer to your camera receiving sound via a microphone, emitting sound via a speaker, or both. Cameras with both can double as intercoms.

Wi-Fi Capability

A camera with Wi-Fi can communicate with your home network wirelessly, which can be very handy for installation, and is also less susceptible to being disabled because it doesnt have wires that could be cut.

Night Vision

The distance from which your camera can record images in low- to no-light situations can have a great impact on its effectiveness because often criminal activity can happen at night.

Movement

A camera that can pan and/or tilt may be able to record a larger area than a static camera and therefore reduce the total number of cameras needed to observe a particular area.

Cost

Obviously, if a camera costs so much that you can no longer afford the valuables you’re trying to protect with it, then it doesnt serve a purpose. Cost is a factor for every purchasing decision.

Resolution

Resolution defines how clear the image from your camera will be. A clearly visible image is very helpful when trying to identify faces or items in the images your camera records.
