Security camera systems are a smart investment for any home or business wishing to protect their assets. However, users must ensure that they purchase a video surveillance system that can perform to their expectations. It is imperative that one selects the right cameras. In addition, the system must be installed by a professional security camera company.

How to choose the right security camerasNew York Security Camera Systems - Long Island Installations

The choice of surveillance cameras is usually guided by what a user wants to be captured. As such, one should consider three things when searching for cameras, namely:

  • Scene - Would they rather capture a "scene" of all the happenings within their facility?
  • Event - Would they rather capture an "event" and have a clear view of the happenings?
  • Individuals - Would they rather get a closer look to determine the "individual" involved in an incidence

Answering these three questions will enable a user to understand the type of surveillance cameras that they need to purchase.

The types of security cameras

1.    Pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras

These cameras are very versatile owing to an electronic adjustment mechanism that allows users to control their movement. The cameras can move either, left and right (pan), or up and down (tilt), or zoom in or out. In addition, these security cameras can rotate 360 degrees in order to view objects directly below them.

2.    Box cameras

These cameras are box-shaped to allow for larger focal lengths. As such, they are ideal for long range viewing. For indoor installations, one requires a mount bracket only. On the other hand, outdoor installations require a housing to protect the camera from the elements.

3.    Dome Cameras

Domes, as the name suggests are half spherical-shaped. They are ideal for discreet applications since it is difficult to tell the direction the camera is facing. In addition, the glass dome covers the camera and prevents vandals from tampering with it.

4.    Bullet Cameras

These are similar to the box cameras, but their bullet-like shape makes them more stylish. These cameras are ideal for both indoor and outdoor security surveillance applications.
