Consumers face an uphill task when it comes to selecting security systems for their homes or businesses. For instance, CCTV cameras come in different brands, models, designs, and styles - a factor that makes each of them unique and suitable for various applications. As a result, homeowners and businesses are able to get security cameras that can meet their individual requirements.

The Four Crucial Considerations When Shopping for Security Cameras 

1. Resolution

Security camera resolution determines the size and quality of video images that can beBest Security Cameras in New York achieved. Professional grade IP Cameras offer a higher resolution, ranging from 1.3 MP to 10 MP. Therefore, these cameras are best suited for highly sensitive security and monitoring applications that require clear images.

2. Lighting:

Security cameras have an inbuilt sensor, which requires lighting in order to capture images. Most cameras are designed to operate under normal lighting. Therefore, when buying cameras for use in poorly lit environments, users should consider buying cameras with Infrared or night-vision capabilities, or install an external lighting source.

3. Indoor vs. Outdoor

Surveillance cameras that are used indoors are significantly different from those that are used outdoors, with regard to protection against the elements. Outdoor security cameras are weatherproof i.e. they are built to withstand high temperatures, dirt, dust, snow, rain, and hail, among other elements. In addition, outdoor cameras come with vandal-proof enclosures to ensure they are not tampered with.

4. Distance: The area to be covered by surveillance cameras is an important consideration because it determines the kind of lenses to use. For instance, if the intention of a user is to focus on a wide area, but short distances, then he/she needs a security camera with a smaller focal length.  Increasing the focal length of a lens also increases the distance that can be covered by the camera.

There is no such thing as a one-model-fits-all security camera. Therefore, every client has to carry out a security audit to determine his/her requirements, and select a set of security cameras that will adequately fulfill those needs.
