When it comes to home security everyone wants the latest methods and the best way to secure their property, however, it is not that easy to do. There are plenty of options in terms of the camera type, installing type, properties you especially want them with and the company they are manufactured from whom you can trust to keep the privacy of your home secret and stored.
Lets begin with the type of cameras you will come across when you once decide to buy. Before this, think clearly what’s the purpose you are about to buy a security camera. For instance, if you want to secure your home from the front then you need a rotating camera with an ability to tilt and pan, same goes to the back door of the house but with floodlights, since the front doors usually have porch lights but the back door does not have one, so its better to install floodlight cams at the back.
Other than this, your pool, lawn, garage and corridors are also who need to be secured from robbers and burglars whether you are at home or not. On the other hand, there are people who need a full security camera system including every corner of the house or any other property with a chance of burglary, this may include not only the security camera but it requires a DVR system as well to perform the recording of the footage in a more feasible way. Whereas, there are many others who just want to see what their kids are doing at home in their absence. Or if there is any visitors, keeping an eye on your kids nanny or the maid etc.
Once you have decided what you actually need to make secure, then it’s time to move towards the features that security camera should have.
One of them and the very important property that every camera needs is the ability to capture crystal clear images and videos. The most common lens of the camera is 2MP and 1080p resolution, you will find in the market. Moreover there are many brands come across guarantees HD resolution but what it says is not what it comes out. Apart from this, night vision is also the compulsory feature we require in the security camera whether its a baby monitor, one room camera or a full camera security system. It would be useless if the camera is unable to fetch the images in the dark, since the most robberies occur at night in the cover of darkness.
Further, if you are about to buy a security camera for outdoor surveillance then make it is weather resistant and is strong enough to remain connected with you anywhere regardless of the weather condition. No matter its raining outside, snowfall or its windy, a good security camera is suppose to do recording in all circumstances with a strong internet connection.
Coming towards the camera type, the most commonly used and manufactured camera styles are bullet and dome, both are able to mount on the wall and to place on a surface. However, it’s your choice whether you want them cordless or not, whereas, wired security cameras are much preferable in case of outdoor surveillance since the outdoor continuous recording is much needed as compared to indoor security, then again it’s a matter of the prevailing situations and environments in which you require security system.
In addition, make sure you are aware of the storage facility before you bought home. There are two types of storage, one is a local backup with limited features storage at hand to avail, other one is unlimited features and storage through cloud storage in which you have to buy the plan of the company; this includes non stop and unlimited backup secured at the goodwill of the company where your videos remain in safe hands and your privacy will not be violated and you can enjoy many features under the plan.
