Many home and business owners deploy security camera systems, without knowing that their choice may not necessarily fit to the intended purposes. This is particularly the case for consumers who purchase low cost DIY surveillance kits or engage unqualified security camera companies in order to save on cost. Consumers must take into account the various factors that are likely to affect the performance of their security camera systems and come up with the right specifications that cater to their needs.

What to consider when purchasing security camera systems

Camera Lenses

The choice of camera lenses will determine the amount of light that a camera can focus on itssecurity camera systems sensor in order to create an image. In addition, lenses determine the distance and viewing angle of the camera.

Camera Resolution

The resolution of an IP camera refers to the number of megapixels it can output. Professional grade IP CCTV cameras offer high resolutions, ranging up to 10MP. As a rule, users must choose cameras that offer enough resolution to provide clear video images for their intended application.

Camera Types

The different types of surveillance applications require security cameras with different capabilities. In addition, every user has his/her unique needs that have to be catered to by the type of cameras they select. Users can choose from the wide variety of security camera designs, styles and configurations including:

  • Dome Cameras: Domes are an excellent choice for most types of surveillance applications because they are both affordable and versatile. Apart from being easy to mount, dome come with a glass casing to protect the camera from tampering and vandalism, and make it difficult for people to see the directing that the camera is pointed.
  • Bullet Cameras: These cameras are ideal for covert surveillance applications owing to their small size. Bullet Cameras are also very affordable.
  • IR Day/Night Cameras: These cameras are ideal for surveillance applications requiring 24-hour coverage. IR illuminators surrounding the camera provide lighting at night or when the lighting conditions deteriorate, thus, enabling the camera to film in the dark.
