Different Security Camera Types and Different Uses
Security cameras are an excellent way to monitor your home or business, protect your property and prevent theft and damage. Every surveillance camera records what happens on your property, there are many different types of surveillance cameras and they can be used in a variety of different situations and settings.
Below are details about the different kinds of security cameras as well as information on their uses and their advantages and disadvantages.
Wired Security Cameras -vs- Wireless Security Cameras
Surveillance cameras can be broken down into two types: wireless cameras and wired cameras. The main advantage of a wireless camera is that it is easier to install and can be moved around without much effort. However, wireless security cameras can sometimes have their signals interfered with by other devices such as wireless Internet connections or cordless phones.
Wired surveillance cameras are hardwired into your home or business. The advantages to wired security cameras are that they are generally more reliable than wireless cameras. Wired surveillance cameras are more appropriate for permanent setups, if hardwiring is possible.
Black & White Security Cameras or Colour Security Cameras
When installing security cameras you'll need to make a choice between black and white cameras and colour cameras. Both options have their own strengths and weaknesses. Black and white surveillance cameras are better at filming in low light conditions and are often less expensive than coloured cameras. Coloured security cameras make it easier to distinguish individual items, articles of clothing and multiple items that are grouped together.
Bullet Security Cameras
Bullet surveillance cameras are very adaptable and quite affordable. Bullet security cameras are long, thin cameras that can be placed indoors or outdoors. They are one of the most common types of security cameras and there are many different types of bullet cameras available. For outdoor use, there are weatherproof bullet cameras. These surveillance cameras can withstand wind, water, snow and other harsh weather conditions.
Dome Security Cameras
Dome security cameras are small cameras that are covered by a plastic, often black, dome. Dome cameras are often placed indoors on ceilings, though they can be found outdoors as well. Their appearance allows them to be seen by potential criminals and allows them to act as a deterrent to crime. Another advantage to dome surveillance cameras is that the plastic often makes it difficult to tell which direction the camera is facing. This makes them much more difficult for people to avoid. There are also vandal proof dome security cameras that can survive some attacks.
Using Security Cameras at Night
As mentioned earlier, black and white security cameras work much better than colour security cameras in low light situations. Several other types of surveillance cameras work well at night or in low light situations. as well. If you are going to be placing cameras in rooms where there will be hardly any light, you will likely want to consider an infrared surveillance camera. These cameras are able to pick up a great deal of detail in situations where barely any light is present.
Security Camera Monitoring
A surveillance system is not effective if it is not being monitored. With the cost of digital storage decreasing and storage capacity increasing, most surveillance cameras now record onto digital video recorders (DVRs). Recording footage onto a DVR is excellent for situations where you would like to have a historical record of activities within a home or business. Some surveillance cameras also have the option of viewing live footage over the Internet. This allows you to view your home or office remotely from anywhere with an Internet connection. The technology involved in today's surveillance systems and security cameras is improving rapidly and opening up new options that will help secure your home or office better than ever before.
